    Why no booze?
    From my personal knowledge of all gay men around the world, they all have amazing abs which they can only achieve through a ban on consuming simple carbs like booze and hours of work in the gym with lots of extended eye contact with other gym users.

    I wish I was gay enough to give up simple carbs.

    Still not getting the joke, but then I was working until midnight, so I'm tired.

    This will be my third Christmas without alcohol. The first was a bit of a sod, but the second I really enjoyed. This time I've not even thought about doing it sober.


    I've sadly got other carbs that replaced booze.

    When trying to hard to be funny and fit in makes you look like a cunt.
    Looks like someone wants to make eyes at Jambo across a crowded gym.

    Going low key this year. My wife and I are saving our pennies for a weekend break in January, I'm training for boxing in March so I won't be gorging myself and we've got a few bits for the kids.

    Been a really tough year, this one. Nearly fucked my marriage up, been diagnosed with depression and anxiety, flirted with alcoholism, decided to quit my job. Last couple of months have all been about personal growth, which can be fucking painful at times.

    Anyway - looking forward to some time off and some space to reflect.

    We don't agree on politics but I'll always congratulate anyone managing to make it through the other side of some difficult times. Good luck for the new year mate, keep on going.

    @JamboWayOh

    I think we probably have a lot more common ground than the internet allows us to recognise but for what it's worth, I respect your opinions on politics (even if I rarely show it) and value your counsel on personal shit.

    So cheers, pal.

    Nothing to do with sexuality or body image, all to do with the realisation a few months ago when doing a fast and having to taper that my relationship with booze is horrific and I really needed to quit it

    Bit of a bummer this year, got to work the Monday Thursday and Friday so won't get to spend much time with the kids (first year with 2 of the blighters) but got the following week off. We're also on our arse financially after moving house, unexpectedly having to redecorate every room in the house, tiling, new carpets, extension, garage converted and the wife being on the last leg of her maternity leave. But it's done and next year shouldn't be so bad. It's nice seeing it all decorated and the lights are up outside. Most people on our old street didn't bother with lights outside, or the ones that did looked really shite. But there's 5 houses on our cul-de-sac and 4 out of the 5 have got lights up outside, on the house, on trees etc- looks really festive. 3 of the 5 don't even have kids.

    Looking at going to a villa in Spain with some friends (two couples and their kids), first time we've been away for 2 or 3 years.

    I dunno, I had to draw faces on bananas last night and construct some kind of weird banana shrine for a pretend magic elf. That was pretty exciting. I've also spent all of my money on overpriced toys which is pretty great.

    He was riding a gorrila teddy as well. It ended looked like a weird sex show. I'm so fucking sick of doing it that I'm making it weird to amuse myself.

    Thanks to a class loudmouth, the jig was up earlier in the year for all pretend magic people but the Mrs is still persisting with that fucking elf every night, which is particularly annoying as she often works nights and I'm still getting the panicked 1am 'did you move the elf?' texts.

    I hate it. Ma ho goes to bed before me most nights so it normally comes to about 11pm and I remember I've got to do something with the stupid fucking elf. Plus the boy is waking up early so he can go and see what the elf has been doing.

    It's the latest part of showing what a great parent you are on social media.

    That's the first year you do it. After that it loses its charm and becomes a chore but one that you can't get out of as the kids do actually really enjoy it.

    Nobody has two weeks off unless they're minted. I've worked in offices most the time and it's a week max if you're lucky and the office closes for a week.

    Feel your pain, used to work in pubs and bars. I used to fucking hate Christmas.
    I've got two weeks off. Tbf this is the first job I've ever had where I've been given two weeks off. I'm looking forward to seeing my friends and family and in a masochist way I'm looking forward to see the depression that is Birmingham.
    I've got 2 days of work left to do from now until the 6th January. 😁
