They've been showing Christmas movies since September and I saw an Christmas ad back then as well!

The "improved" Amazon Music Prime benefit. They call it improved and in so much as you have access to the entire library it is but now it's a shuffle service so invariably you wait for an age to hear the track you've selected, that's if you're lucky, whilst meanwhile you have to sit through a load of so called related tracks from similar bands. I far preferred the previous limited range of tracks but being able to listen to a specific band or album. Basically it's now Amazon radio.

Having to think of Xmas presents for myself.
If I want/need something I just buy it.

I am consistently amazed by Mrs Maz's ability to come up with presents I never knew I needed.

Walter Wort 04-11-2022 10:32 AM

The point of Christmas gifts is not necessarily to satisfy a need or a want, but simply to delight.

Or so I read somewhere once.

I love getting socks for Xmas, something that is actually useful and isnt just going to clutter up my house or sit in a drawer for years! Getting old :(

Christmas is all about socks.

Especially brightly coloured ones, that delight.

But not Christmas-themed socks please.

Short ride was along Frith Road and back.
For an extra few pennies (old money) there was the long ride that went round the corner along Keeley Road past the Swap Shop and back again.

The key to all this is SHOPS. Can't do that on line, though I'm sure some make-a-quick-few-quid a/h could invent a virtual donkey ride for while you are waiting to process your on-line order :rolleyes:

norwoodeagle 04-11-2022 07:32 PM

Not sure if this deserves it's own thread but it's the beginning of the end:
"Bounty bars removed from Celebrations tubs.l.
Bounty hunters may have their work cut out this Christmas, after chocolate manufacturer Mars Wrigley said it would be eliminating the sweet from some of its tubs.

The coconut-flavoured treat may be marketed as a slice of paradise, but nearly 40% of us hate them, Mars says.

So a limited run of "No Bounty" tubs will go on sale at 40 Tesco stores in the run-up to Christmas

El Aguila 04-11-2022 07:37 PM

Red Bounty were the absolute shit, the bees’ knees of confectionery. They’ve already been supplanted by the inferior blue, so it’s hard for me to care about this.

Missing goals when it's my shout at the football. 2 last game 1 this game.

BTW ever seen a poor game where you win 4-0 ? Last night was a dire spectacle for Popovics Melbourne Victory. 15 to 20 mins of decent football, the rest a lot like Roy ball I'd say.

I'm the same - if I need something I buy it, if I want something I spend a while trying to justify if "want" should become "need", if it does I buy it, if it doesn't I don't. I've turned into my Dad, who always said "peace & quiet" when asked what he wanted for Christmas - one year I bought him some earplugs and a bag of frozen peas!

Nostrils 05-11-2022 10:10 AM

When family ask me what I want I just ask for a record. They're usually around the £20 mark so not an unreasonable request and it's something I will genuinely look forward to. Books are in the same category, if you're at a loss on what to get someone, a book on a subject close to their heart is usually a winner, shows a little thought went into it, and another at a decent price.

Anyway, I'm heading back over to Mumsnet where the real action is.

I made the mistake of getting my wife a diet book one year... didn't go down too well!

Recently I've been getting her a certificate for a day at the spa... this worked well for many years until she went and got herself an annual pass to go all year round - kinda ruined that one.

Back to racking my brains for the next two months.

Plenty of McDonald's on the continent. The one in Salzburg is even posher than the lovechild of Richard and El Aguila and there's one in Rome that has a section of the Servian Wall in it. Alternatively you could go to Lineker's Bar with Maidstoned.

I don't see how the over and early commercialisation of Christmas will help families to give their kids a decent Christmas experience. I would suggest that by persuading them to spend on stuff they don't need it takes away any budget they have for a good christmas. Spread out, they would be better putting the cash into a Christmas fund.

Somehow, I doubt there will be many in the UK going without this Yuletide. Mainly because people have their priorities wrong.

There is a channel that shows Christmas movies all day, every day.

The hooky site that I used to use had such a number of new release Christmas crap every year you truly wonder where they hell they get the finance from.

Found this on google for 2021 - 'This year will see a record 146 new Christmas movies air before Santa even parks his sleigh on our roofs, and that alone is reason to celebrate the spirit of the season.'

and for 2022 a new record 155 https://ew.com/tv/christmas-movies-2022-how-to-watch/

Why? Don't you have the imagination or the drive to come up with a gift that your other half will enjoy.

To all posters who have said this.

With a couple of months to think about it and a whole world of internet shopping it shouldn't be hard to find something for a person I suggest one should know really well, cherish, and think about all the time.

Failing that have a conversation - buy each other a trinket of a gift (choccies or somesuch) and spend the cash on a very decent long weekend away somewhere classy.

When we used to live in the suburbs of Nottingham we had about 2 weeks solid of fireworks.
They seem to be let off for Diwali, Halloween, Bonfire Night and another religious festival (can't remember which one).
Now we are in the countryside things are much quieter.

My last two vehicles have had CD players (over 15 years) and I can't remember the last time I used them, or played a CD at home for that matter.

At the time I thought CD's were the future, but in reality they probably have lasted less time than cassettes.

Erling Haarland of Man City saying that taking the last minute penalty against Fulham was one of the most nervous situations he'd ever faced in his life.
Yes, he's likeable and a great player but come on. Crossing the Somme or walking down The Shoreditch High street pre-1980's might make one nervous, but a spot kick against F in Fulham.
If he missed, they'd still have drawn. They would still have led the table. They're still going to win the league with over a 100 points and the way he's going he's going to end up with 113 goals, allowing a goal or two for for exaggeration.
So let's get the whole, "most nervous situation in the whole wide world," put into perspective please.

Fair play, Bonfire night is done, it’s reasonable enough to dust your ‘Grinch’ off ready for Xmas.

……That reminds me.

The whole Grinch thing annoys me, the movie, the book etc.

Odd because I like Jim C and can handle Santa, elves and reindeer stories of all shapes and sizes but the Grinch just rubs me up the wrong way for some reason.

I try to beat the app and add an hour and it still isnt right.

You need to get more aware (or you will find yourself not counting.)

This has to be one the most posted annoyances.

Delight when my new neighbor tells me she is half English…turning to total annoyance when she says her Dad supports Chelsea.

Not noticing signs for a special event clear way and having my van towed.

Absolutely. This & middle-lane drivers (which, if I recall correctly, has its own thread) :p

It is a funny thing - it went out of fashion for a few years (perhaps people thought better of it) but is now commonplace again.
I reckon it is all part of the post-pandemic couldn't-give-a-stuff lairiness that's going around.

Common courtesy doesn't seem to be much of a thing anymore. Very rare I have a journey on public transport that doesn't have at least one of someone blasting music, watching loud shit tik tok videos, having a conversation on speaker, or parents putting some crap like Peppa Pig on a tablet for their little darlings.

Peppa Pig is high culture compared to some of the shite one sees and hears on trains.

Shoelaces. In recent years they seem to wear out about every couple of months. I used to have to get heels/soles redone before the laces went, but now they fray and snap after just a few decent pulls.

Apologies, it took me a bit to find it this season. :)

Toilet paper holders in offices and other public places where the loose end of the roll is forever disappearing back into the dispenser.

The leading story on the BBC news website is now almost always a live reporting thread. Tell me what the main story is in a self-contained article setting out what has happened instead of a thread I have to scroll through. I find it really lazy journalism.

The Monday Night Club on 5Live…. Self indulgent banter… w@nkers.

Yes, he'd give fat Samuel a run for his money. Sam, constantly had half a double cheeseburger and two packets of Wrigley spearmints being simultaneously chomped up and down by his National healthers.

The train strike was cancelled - yet the companies are running DAY 2 of their strike timetable.

This means the first train again today is at 8 am - so I am already an hour late for work.

Can they really not just switch to what they should have been running today?
