Are You Scared Of Xmas??!!!

drk-sants

Here’s the thing. Deck the halls with boughs of holly and all that, but Jeez, that holly and all that decking is expensive! Not to mention the presents you’ve been strong-armed to buy via endless weeks of advertising.

Then there’s the cards for countless relatives that you have or haven’t actually spoken to in the last decade.

The food… did I mention the Xmas food yet?…The drink? Roughly a week of over indulgence has to be paid for by someone and if that someone is you…

Now’s the time to admit it…

ARE YOU SCARED OF XMAS??!!

Some of us are experiencing a great scarcity of greenbacks for any number of reasons right now, so as you watch the money trickling through your fingers as a result of Crazy Season does it bother you? Or are you one of those people who pretend it’s not happening until the credit card statement arrives in January?

What Say You??

  1. The Ed, have you never heard of saving for Xmas?
  2. The Ed, I’m a turn-a-blind-eye-until-January type. So sue me.
  3. The Ed, the cost is making me feel queasy. Times is hard guv’nor. *Sniff!*
  4. Merry Chrimble one and all! I don’t give a flying turkey. Life is for living. Joy to the world!

YAWN!! Should You Stay Married If It’s Boooooring?!

UK celebrity couple, presenter Zoe Ball and DJ Fatboy Slim broke up recently as part of a spate of recent similar celeb ‘conscious uncouplings.’ This one stands out for the reason given for the separation. Zoe Ball apparently stated that she was bored! Brutal…but honest.

Predictably she was lambasted for it online with most of the internet crowd on Team Fatboy. But I have to ask, should anyone stay in a marriage that they are not happy with? For any reason? Who does that serve? The person who wants to leave? The one who knows the other wants to leave or the children caught in the middle?

Are we still saying that marriages should be kept past their usefulness and the couple should live in misery or indeed boredom for some old fashioned, cultural or societal reason?

WHAT SAY YOU?

  1. Yes The Ed you should do everything possible to keep a marriage together and I’ll tell you why you fool…
  2. No The Ed, folks should end the torture before they want to kill each other.
