What Will You Be Doing At Xmas?

Mon Nov 13, 2006 10:55 pm

what will all A.net members be and doing during the xmas holiday.

Me and Linda will be spending xmas here in London,due to her grand son coming over,''that will be fun''and over at me mothers during the new year getting sloshed,and putting on the pounds, and hopfully booking our flight to Frankfurt for Feb 07 as this will be my first time in Frankfurt,''cant wait''.

So nothing exciting really just the normal boring xmas.

I'll be flying up to Ohio for part of the break, spending the rest of it relaxing. (Yay for being a college student with month long breaks between semesters!)
Flight Schedule:
Airline: Delta
12/26/06 GSO-CVG
Aircraft: Embraer ERJ-145
1/02/07 CVG-GSO
Aircraft: Canadair CRJ-100

Once in Cincinnati, I'll be feasting at Skylines, Graetar's and UDF and hopefully hanging out at Newport on the Levee and skiing at Perfect North. Oh, it better snow this time while I'm up there too.

We'll be flying to Prague for a short vacation. Plan to see the Boys Choir on Christmas Day and hopefully see "La Traviata" at the National Opera House. The rest of the time, we'll bop around and hit as many museums as possible. I've heard it's a beautiful city and have wanted to visit for a long time.

Looking forward to it.

Waiting for Santa to arrive. If, just one of his reindeer poops on my roof again this year I'll shoot to kill  bigthumbsup 

There's a new (what over Christmas) programme on TV this year. It's called:-
'Pimp my sled'.

The dynamic duo, Tranny and Vestite, are doing a complete makeover of Mr. Claus. Gone is the long recognised grey whiskers and red suit. Now, we have the new, rejuvenated(sp) Mr Claus. Hair tinted to a more PC shade of bald. The suit is a nice shade of purple with little sequins running along the seams.

As for the reindeer, see the opening lines Big grin  devil   cloudnine

We've gone to France (We had gone to both Val D'isere and Les Menuires/three valleys.) the past two years and loved it, but we wanted to try something new this year. We go skiing every Christmas.

On the evening of the 24th I will do the same thing I did in the past 28 years. My whole family will meet in my parents' house, we'll have dinner and drinks and exchanging Xmas presents. On the 25th and 26th I will recover from drinking on the 24th. Big grin On the evening of the 27th I will meet with my best friend to have a few drinks with him, on the 28th we'll fly together to Barcelona for a short holiday, we'll return on the 31st at 7:40 PM, hopefully we'll make it to the New Year's Eve party we're invited to.

Sounds like a perfect time between Xmas and New Year for me, I can't wait and I am looking really forward to it.

We're doing Christmas & my birthday (Dec 23rd) the week before the actual day/s because the rest of my family is going to Florida to visit my grandparents.

I'll probably go to my dad's on Christmas Day proper, then I might be going to Mohegan Sun casino for New Year's.

I don't know how I'm gonna pay for it though, because I'm so broke I can't pay attention.  yes

I shall be working until the 21st, then I suppose I'd better get myself down to Plymouth from Brum to see family, it seems that my house is being invaded by elderly Aunts, so I suspect that I'll have my bed nicked by one of them and will end up sleeping on the floor, at least its a fairly comfortable carpet :-? After that I am hoping to go away for a couple of weeks and fly interesting aircraft and airlines, although currently the family are not at all sold on the idea - so I shall be doing it anyway, spending New Year alone really doesn't bother me at all Big grin

On X-MAS day I will probably be at KPHX.

I am getting my kid a well-deserved Canon Rebel XTi and the Bigma. He is dumping the Lumix FZ30 to a relative for $600.

He will wanna start shooting right away. My 5D and Canon 100-400 are getting cold, so I gotta get out soon.

A few days after X-MAS my son and I are going to Anahiem, CA for a hockey tournament. Overall, the holidays will be fun.

It's not that bad man. I remember working Christmas and New Years, was quite good actually. Alot more relaxed attitude of the staff and bosses made those days a breeze.

As for me this year, nice to have a little time off for a change. Will be sleeping alot no doubt

This Christmas (No such thing as "Xmas") I will be spending at home with the days between that and New Year off. And unless some sort of miracle happens, I will be worrying about what the New Year will be bringing on the job front.

Looks like a gloomy time ahead!

Saying that, I have asked for the time off. Will find out about that next week sometime. If I do have the time off, I shall be spending it with 13 members of our family at home in snowy Lancashire. Ill be gutted if I cant make it to be honest.
New Years I couldnt care less about. Last new years I was in bed by 8. Id rather work that and have Christmas off.
