I truly have sympathy for your plight @ working in retail with piped music being relentlessly churned out over and over. I would go further to say that any music.... often of the most banal kind... being played constantly.... all day.... every day.... would drive me to distraction.

But surely there must be some Christmas songs you like..?

Have you ever listened to this album..?



We love this album. For my money, the best ever compilation of Christmas songs (closely followed by Nat King Cole).

If you've never played it, then go on, give it a go. You've got nothing to lose but your Bah Humbug..!!


No Grinch that stole Christmas or Bah Humbug here. I fully embrace the holiday season, It's the most wonderful time of the year I really do wish it could be Christmas every day. In fact Last Christmas was awesome, it was the Last Christmas I spent with my partner (who is no longer here) However All i want for Christmas is for you to have a wonderful time with your family and some Mistletoe and Wine, cause baby it's cold outside. I usually hope for the Fairytale of New York City when I am Driving Home for Christmas....

Merry Christmas to you one an all and to all a happy new year.

One final thought

then the Grinch thought of something. he hadn't before maybe Christmas he thought doesn't come from a store maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more. x

a petition going around to ban Fairytale of New York city because it's upset someone on twitter...


Ah yes, don't like the use of the words 'faggot' and 'slut'

Yeah I read that.

For the past few years a number of shopping centres have banned Santa from saying "ho, ho, ho" as apparently that's slut shaming even though "ho" isnt even a word we use in Australia when referring to a trollop!

Oh, and some councils have banned Santa as he is a symbol of white, male privilege and oppression.

Merry bloody Christmas!
Bring back Kevin bloody Wilson, now that's Christmas music for all the family lol

Funny enough I read this very story this morning so worked hard to include it lol. I certainly hope Jen doesn't mind me calling her "baby" and takes in with the spirit of fun and laughter it was intended.

Baby it's cold outside isn't the only song that "Millennials" have been appalled at this week with a petition going around to ban Fairytale of New York city because it's upset someone on twitter...



Not at all. Actually I found it mildly amusing and the whole thing almost inventive. But not quite. I wrote a similar item a few years ago. But yeah... a thread like this is meant to be in fun.

So... If you believe in Father Christmas and think you can hear sleigh bells in the snow, the please come home for Christmas as part of your sleigh ride. You might be in time to stop the cavalry and still watch the parade of wooden soldiers and that way you won't be lonely this christmas. Just let it snow, let it snow, let it snow, ring those Christmas bells and let's all have a wombling merry Christmas.

Aw my gawd... not heard "Trollop" in years. There's a good old Cockney word if ever there was. My gran used to use that one. I can hear her now "That old trollop at the corner shop? I know 'er sort." Allegedly, it has it's origins in the Nordic "Troll" but that's just my understanding.

Frankly though, all this talk of "banning" this and "banning" that is just so much flaming.

So some people object to the message in this or that song. So what..? I object to a lot of things but don't call for them to be banned. Except, perhaps, boxing... and fox hunting.... oh, and war. But then again, it's Christmas time and War Is Over (if you want it).

The point is though, that whenever an individual makes the simplest of remarks over any minor, trivial issue, there are always those who are quick to leap on the outrage bandwagon and blow it out of all proportion.

Over here we call them "Gammon's" because of the colour of their faces when they splutter and rant their fury in taking offence at people who... er.... take offence.

People... nobody is banning anything. Nobody's right to listen to a Christmas jingle has been infringed.

Surely we have more important issues.... ones that really do need to be addressed..... Don't we...? Like poverty, homelessness, the plight of refugees, global warming, that sort of thing.

It's a Christmas jingle and regardless of what the gammons think, no, it isn't the thin edge of any wedge. It is what it is. Somebody with nothing better to do than make a fuss over niff-naff and trivia. If somebody starts a petition, just don't sign it.

Simple.

Ah yes, what a bloody legend! We could be listening to Christmas classics like "Ho Ho F^cking Ho", "Christmas without snow", "Hey Santa Claus" and "Santa was stoned at Christmas"

Thanks for that Nanki-Poo.

Unfortunately, I'm not Katisha so serenading me won't get you off the hook with your dad. The boiling oil awaits.

Doesn't quite have that "Christmassy" ring to it, does it..?

I found this:

Nanki-Poo Oxford Reference

My actual self .. . bit of a stream of conscious free-thinker.

Yesterday I purchased coconut oil to make fat bomb taste-treats. In this case I must freeze the oil along with the other ingredients.

See here the yummy recipe

it's a healthy option -- give it a shot
