Merry Christmas

Post by Digifiend »

It won't be a very merry Christmas for some of my neighbours - the power is out in the next street. Our lights flashed and the computer went off - something got affected because I had to give it a good whack before it would turn back on! But at least we still have electricity. Some of my neighbours aren't so lucky - 35 postcodes blacked out according to Northern Power Grid. If that engineer doesn't fix it as fast as Billy Whizz, their Christmases are ruined. :(

Ah well, have a good Christmas, everyone!

EDIT: The engineer did go at whizzspeed, it took only 100 minutes before they fixed it! :D

Its very quiet on comics uk - a lot of people must be away visiting.

Yeah, I did expect someone else would've started this thread a bit earlier. As you say, some people are probably away from home.

Some of us are only awake! Of course, Bruce, you could have got in before the lot of us ;)

I hope I haven't got any comics for Christmas - Jo, my mum, my dad and grandma won't have been to second hand shops in search of them, and I have the full complement of Beano/Dandy/Oor Wullie books already :)

PS - Merry Christmas everybody!

Heh, I'm more of a traditionalist in that sense - I got the Beano, Dandy, and Beano/Dandy Panto Time books, along with some other miscellaneous items - clothes, trainers, chocolate, and Doctor Who books (Encyclopedia and a triple pack of novels). Annuals are meant for Christmas, honestly, it wouldn't feel the same reading them in July or August!

My mate Steve is the same. He bought the Alf Tupper special a few months back but won't read it until Christmas morning. TV is rubbish. I'd prefer to watch CSI reruns than the Christmas fare.

Yeah, Doctor Who was the only show I was bothered about watching.

Spent most of Xmas reading my haul so far of annuals & comics. Was far more entertaining than watching all the dross on TV. If only some of the concepts in the many UK comic strips were made into TV shows - could fill a schdule at Christmas. That's just got me thinking of my fantasy schedule...may go & write it.

Third year in a row I've not watched anything as broadcast on Xmas day (I find Doctor Who is very overrated - I don't rate Matt & show is still as sexist as ever in my view).

I hate Xmas - so tacky & forced down your throat & I always end up spending it alone (have no close family, which all my friends have).

Still could be worse - all the floods I have been hearing about put that into perspective.

And with some beers & a few comics you're never alone.

Hope you all had a good one.
