Ugh.

I've spent quite a few orphaned alone Christmases but this year I feel a bit depressed about it. I've seen all my family this year and most of them quite recently so I don't think it's that. I think it's that I'm sick and alone and bored fucking witless. I wonder if feeling sorry for myself will make me feel better and if so for how long. I shall try it and see.

Stock up on wine and a shitload of DVDs. This is my plan for the 26th.

11 bottles of wine [inc. 1 of bubbles], two bottles of vodka, Haigs in fridge. Stack of unwacthed dvds. I just don't feel like any of it. Maybe I'll force myself to drink.

This Christmas, why not revel in the misfortunes of others? I believe when politicians do it it's called compassionate conservatism.

I'm going to Alice Springs to be with family tomorrow, and heartily wish that I had nothing to do with them and was mooching around, alone, here in Melbourne instead.

Er, Merry Christmas. And I mean that non-ironically.

Just drink a lot, Tim. And thank you.

Hey nails, I hope tomorrow isn't too traumatic. Everyone I know has left town too, so I'm planning on doing something... I just don't know what yet. Cheers.. James

Probably I shall spend the day sleeping in and then having nanna naps every couple of hours. This is how I've spent the last few days so I guess it's how I'll go on until I am all hale and hearty again - or maybe just not sick. I'm sure you'll manage something exciting, James. I envy you the energy if nothing else. Have a good day now, y'hear...

I will be spending the day watching Sweeny Todd and, hopefully, having a few adult beverages. I personally hate this time of year and I get down. I blame the previous women in my life, but only because I feel the need to blame something/someone and I don't have anyone to aim my accusatory cannon at. If I was there, we would get drunk together and piss the day away. But, alas, not yet. Maybe next year I will be there and if someone doesn't have a place to go, a "friends Christmas" could be had, seeing as how I would be even further from my biological kin.

Yeah, Christmas must be dull if your family is far away. But I hope it isn't too terrible ;)

Put on a record!

nailpolishblues said...

I don't own records, Mark. In fact, I never actually learned to use a record player. We went to CDs early, okay!

Dan, I'm really only down because I'm sick. Normally I couldn't care less but, you know, I'm all *woe* won't someone take pity on me and all that. Also, I haven't felt like alcohol which just makes me want to CRY. A lot.

At least you got to drink, I didn't even have that. A bloke on sis' ward got around that, he drank a full bottle of listerine. Now that's desperate.

I could've but didn't. I really don't feel like alcohol at the moment, it's quite strange.
