    Merry Christmas to you and yours everyone.

    I wasn't too much into the holiday spirit. But the other night (Along side my wife and her family) hit up a Boney M concert and hung out with the band until early in the morning and with some of their xmas classics stuck freshly in the brain I'm full of the holiday spirit.

    Feliz Navidad

    Been a tough week, our team all got the axe at work, out of the blue, after planning furiously for Q1 2020... Ho ho ho.... Life of a contractor etc. 

    And yet... What am I, the fricken Grinch?  I'm in a good place to pick something up in January so I'll enjoy the time off and get amongst the gaming with my sons. Duder's "Klaus" movie recommendation has slowly got the party started.  Also, them shit movies on Christmas24 channel or whatever where a dumped teacher encounters an off-duty foreign prince in a coffee shop etc.  

    Merry Strutmas, Christmas!!!!

    Merry Xmas!  Somehow I think I've got all my gifts lined up in time...

    I had to look after the kids solo for two weeks while my wife went on a trip earlier this month - I only made it through by watching the first 6 Harry Potter's with them; so we're finishing those off over the holidays, and also have Gremlins and Home Alone lined up.  Kids already saw Klaus a couple of weeks ago too, so haven't had a chance to see it.  Maybe next year.

    Sorry to hear about the layoffs, Jimster.  Enjoy the break!

    Yeah, no worries Ketan.  I am trusting the universe to deliver.  What could go wrong?

  • I like Malcolm X-mas! I've had a hell of a December with working at home for the first time and realizing I basically am incapable of working at home, the apartment falling apart and getting fixed at the same time, etc. We had no plans at all for Christmas other than to not work, and I was thinking that being alone as a couple for the whole week wouldn't have the intended relaxing effect and just depress us both.

    Then yesterday some friends invited us to dinner and a night over to help out as they had had an early labor scare and a small kid to look after if they had to dash to the hospital - it felt good to help put their minds at ease and visit, even though thankfully no emergency happened.

    And tomorrow our roast dinner alone has turned into a respectable six people, several of whom we don't know well. But when you're an immigrant you take who you can get and make all welcome.

    Merry Christmas Soul Strut fam! 2019 was good but I think 2020 will be even better.

    Sorry to hear about the jobby job @Jimster. Sometimes these things happen for a reason and it works out in the end.

    Yeah, just to echo previous sentiments Jimster, crap timing but maybe it’ll be an opportunity that comes up golden.

    All the best to the Strut collective and a happy 2020 as well. I did the family thing on Sunday; huge breakfast with my mother and brother and his wife. It felt odd that this was the first Christmas without my Dad who passed in January. Anyhow, I didn't do anything today except listen to records and make batches of chili. Jim, you seem like a got-it-together kind of guy, so I'm sure something will come your way. It usually does.
