It's the first of December. It's that time of year again.
Open your advent calendar chocolates, listen to Andrew, put up your tree this weekend, put off the present shopping for at least a fortnight, surviving the Christmas party at work, watching shit on telly.
You know the drill by now, lads.

Someone I have added on Facebook has uploaded a picture of their Christmas tree. It's full of baubles with pictures of their dead family members in them. They're not even nice pictures; if I wanted to remember my mum I'd try and find a picture of her from good times rather than when she's on death's door with all sorts of tubes going in and out of her.

>put off the present shopping for at least a fortnight
This year I fell for the scare stories and did all my Christmas shopping on Black Friday because I find it hard enough to buy presents for people.
What I noticed is that shopping for teens has become effectively impossible even in November from a mixture of delivery times, price inflation and shortages. I feel bad for giving my nephews £35 Amazon vouchers but I'm not going to be spending my evening looking at bollocks or buying things that I like on the off-chance they might get into it. Better to make them do the choosing and in the process teach the lesson of how stressful a limited amount of money can be.

If they're going to charge that much for a product for children and then have a blank and empty window with no explanation behind it, the justification is all online, then it's going to backfire. They've admitted they've fucked up.

Tony's chocolate is really fucking good (though probably not worth £13 for a calandar).

It's both annoying in practical terms, and about as forecast shippy as you can get. And the chocolate isn't even that good.
Personally, that leads me to conclusions of my own about the sort of people who buy and support the brand.
|>>|| No. 448265
Why though? It's not even that good, and a triangle is still a bloody awkward shape to try and eat chocolate in.
There's nothing autistic about it, it's just that breaking off a square is far easier and leads to far less wasted bits that snap off and get down your keks.
You're simping for a company that's ripping you off.

It's meant to be Christmas fuddle tomorrow and there's been arguments all week about whether it's safe to go ahead due to coronavirus or if everyone should chip in for them to get outside caterers to make something for everyone individually instead. It's still not been resolved, but petty drama and squabbling like this makes me glad I very rarely have to go into the office these days.

I hope they're only temporary ones. What must go through someone's head to get a tattoo related to flash in the pan novelty songs which will be all but forgotten in 10 years time? I wonder how many people got Gangnam Style tattoos, or Mr Blobby back in the day.

It's poverty of ambition and imagination.
I realise this is heading into "poor people shouldn't waste their money on large tellies, Sky TV, booze and fags" but it isn't uncommon for paupers to save up their benefits to get themselves a new tattoo as a treat.
At the end of the day, is a LadBaby sausage roll tattoo worse than other people who decide their personality should be defined by the media they consume? Grown men with Lego, anyone with a Funko Pops collection, someone getting a tattoo of the Joker, you get the idea.
|>>|| No. 448350
>It's poverty of ambition and imagination.
I don't entirely agree. Things like this, I imagine they decided to get it done after it turned into a sort of in-joke with their friends, nights spend having a few tins and laughing about it. While it is something that was designed and served up to them by faceless corporate drones, it may well relate to powerful interpersonal connections for the person with the tattoo. It may remind them of their mates and the time spent bonding over the icon. In many ways that's much less sad than the many (not all) grown men whose Funko Pop collections are the product of parasocial relationships to the media corporation, instead of other people.
|>>|| No. 448351
I agree who are we to judge whether a tattoo of LadBaby has more meaning than, say, my mate's Tool or Porcupine Tree tattoos.
However, I counted at least eight rather crude LadBaby tattoos on her arms so I don't think she's firing on all synapses.

The fuck do I get my mum and dad? I've already bought them a box of Thorntons, I'll probably get the token bottle of wine, but I need at least enough bits to fill up one of those gift bags, and it gets harder every year.
They're deeply boring people who I barely have anything to even talk about with. I don't dislike them, it's just really difficult to spend time with them, it's like pullingteeth trying to keep a conversation going. All my dad does is watch telly, all my mum does is sit on the iPad playing candy crush or whatever.
I could probably makea whole /emo/ post about this but now is not the time. My concern right now is merely keeping up appearances via the mutual ritualistic participation in obligatory consumerism.

They sound very like my parents. Do your parents show any thought in shopping for you? My parents ask me for an exact list of what I want, and then stick to it precisely without deviation. If you try asking them, they might well tell you and then you could just buy that.

I got my dad a coffee calendar and my mum a box of teas. Simples.
Not sure why you'd expect to have much common ground with your parents. You're using an obscure internet message board so you'll always have difficulty relating to people in general, even those your own age.
|>>|| No. 448418
Garden ornament seems like a good shout. To be fair my mum is usually happy with any old tat, but my dad is a royal pain in the arse. I used to be able to buy him tools and the like, he was a mechanic before he retired but nowadays he has no need for any of it, there's nothing he has to do around the house and they've downsized to a single car. I'm stumped.
Nah, we haven't done lists since I was about 13 and it would be weird to start again in my 30s. We're very much at the stage of buying only token gifts, and honestly I'm fine with it, as long as they get me some socks and pants every year, because otherwise I wouldn't have any.

I think the idea of gift giving is lovely. You give something that shows you care about them, something that shows you know them as a person. That you listen, that you're in tune with who they are and what makes them happy.
But there's this horrible irony about it all, where most of the time it's just a "oh fuck I need to get auntie Sandra something, um I'll add that handcare set to basket, that'll do".

I just woke up from a stress dream in which I realised that a random lass from work was definitely buying me an elaborate, thoughtful gift and I had neglected to get her anything. I woke up sweating. I barely know this lass.

Embrace it for what it is. If I spend an extended period of time at my parents it inevitably means spending time on the sofa watching telly with not a great deal being said. There's no point fighting it as you won't be able to change them. Go with the flow, treat yourself to a crisp sandwich and either bring a book or shitpost on here using your phone.
Then again, I have a family of my own so the thought of having a day off from them doing absolutely fuck all sounds like bliss. A day off from your family is more valuable than a day off work.
Do we have any other traditions these days?

It sounds like bliss, to be honest. Me and my Mum get on just fine, but she loves to talk about everything that's gone wrong since I last saw her, so I end up feeling like a therapist that's being paid in cava and pigs in blankets.
My parents are separated, but the rare occasion I do end up at my dads, he just tries desperately to convince me and everyone else he's middle class, because he remarried to a middle class bird with a good career and he obviously has a chip on his shoulder about it, and so does she. I would certainly prefer silence in front of the TV than him giving wikipedia level explanations of philosophical ideas while his wife, closer to my age than his, pointedly brings up my career over and over in thinly vieled jabs at his life as a kept man. (Still not sure if she wants to fuck me, I'll figure it out)
But silence seems more enjoyable.

It wouldn't surprise me if I'd posted before about it, I'm usually pretty good at reading signs (or a lack thereof) but shes always right on the border between the two, which probably means she's just playing around.
The trouble is I don't have much of a relationship with my dad, good or bad, never have. So shagging his wife would never really be the trangressive, exciting, forbidden act it would be for most, nor would it be a triumphant, revenge driven climactic victory over all the ways he's wronged me or anything like that. It'd likely be far more exciting for her than me.

There's this forum I use that always goes a bit weird around Christmas. There's only about 16 or so active users and you can tell from when they've been logging on that they've been visiting the site every day, often several times during the day, but for the past week or so the amount of activity has massively dropped off. I mean things like if a new thread is posted most users won't even open it and read it, nevermind considering actually replying to it. It happens every year without fail and it sort of feels like they're trying to prove to either themselves or everyone else they're too busy doing cool things elsewhere, despite the fact they're a regular user to a niche interest forum and they're still visiting the place on a frequent basis.

This place is weird to me. It's the online equivalent of hanging out with a friend's friends you don't really know. You get the basic premise of most of the conversations, even some of the in-jokes, but it also can be a little weird or hard to grasp and you're not sure why.

Ladbaby has been throwing a teary about Kunt possibly derailing his Ego trip.
|>>|| No. 448463
To me, Ladbaby somehow seems more of a cunt than Kunt. He's that sort of bloke who gets invited to a sesh but doesn't really know anyone that well, but will still unashamedly try to blag a couple of lines off you, do half the fucking bag and then never, ever even entertain the possibility of returning the favour. Whereas Kunt seems like he'd just be a bit too loud and talk a bit too much about the fishscale he "could have got" if you'd only told him last week. Which is still a cunt but a much milder cunt - you can at least empathise with his decisions.
|>>|| No. 448465
LadBaby is a vainglorious cunt. When you actually look on YT channel, most of his videos are around the 200k mark. Yes, this is more than most YouTubers; but it's not really big influencer numbers. I appreciate he is trying to make the most of his fifteen minutes with books and songs and all that, but he will be forgotten about in five years time. I imagine when we're watching the "Every Xmas No. 1" shows on MTV, they'll be WITH NOTHING TO SAY BECAUSE I AM A CUNT by his songs reaching number 1, and look at them with disdain.
Also his wife is really fucking hot and I want to have sex with her, but I cannot due to LadBaby.

I was curious so I looked.
>Alluding to The Kunts’ track, Hoyle said that he would rather choose positivity at Christmas and continued: “It takes a certain sort of person to download a song with that in the title, but you never know.”
>“There’s definitely an element that people aren’t happy with this government, but our song is for charity – I don’t believe theirs is – and ours is trying to raise more money than ever for food banks. It’s something that is even more important given everything that is going on.”
>In a statement shared with The Independent, The Kunts confirmed that they had made large donations to MIND and Cardiac Risk in the Young following the success of their song “Boris Johnson is a F***ing C***” in last year’s Christmas No 1 race. They said that they chose to donate like this rather than releasing a “charity single” to cut out “the large percentage accrued by record companies, sales platforms like Amazon and Apple, management, marketing and PR”.
Yeah, LadBaby has strongly indicated that he is a self absorbed cunt. Not to be too idealistic, but if these christmas number ones actually meant anything more than the shuffling around of dosh, Kunt criticising the Tories is ostensibly addressing the problem, whereas Ladbaby funding foodbanks is basically just feeding into their ineptitude. If political music actually got anything done, he'd be a hypocrite.
>>448465 is spot on apart from the bit about his wife, she's fucking grim. I know you can't all be Captain Japseye for the whales, and some of this must be ironic.

“We may be vulgar in the language we use to get our point across but we would not be so vulgar as to use food banks to hawk records, increase our profile or sign lucrative sponsorship deals.

On the one hand LadBaby is an ignorant Tory, but on the other Kunt is really crass and obnoxious, so hopefully someone else beats them both.

I wouldn't say he's a Tory, it's more that he'd rather bury his head in the sand and deal with the symptoms rather than confronting the cause because it's more convenient. It's good for his brand to look like he's doing something.

I don't like christmas songs in general, but every year I get a bit fascinated by them as a cultural phenomenon. A few of my observations:
-Bruce Springsteen doesn't hit a single on-pitch note in the entire song in his version of "Santa Clause Is Coming To Town". It's actually quite impressive how he's so consistently out of tune.
-Paul McCartney really couldn't write songs for shit without the other three, could he.
-The whole step key change in the one that goes "ring-aling-a-ling-a-ding-dong-ding" is really abrupt and sinister, like the producer was holding them at gunpoint shouting "MORE CHRISTMAS". It has the same vibes as when a videogame boss transitions into their final form and everything steps up a notch.
~Noel or Liam Gallagher's cover of that Slade one is the most morbidly existential piece of music I have ever heard. It is a three minute rumination on the nature of futility.

I watch the Christmas music channels and rate what disc the song should be on. As in what disc on "Now That's What I Call Christmas" 4 disc compilation album. Shakin Stevens is a disc oner. As is Mariah Carrey. But John and Yoko, that's a disc 2. I have a soft spot for Jonah Lewie, but it's not festive enough so belongs on disc 2. Paul McCartney's Wonderful Christmastime is dog shit so belongs on disc 3, but McCartney is a big star so he unfairly ends up on disc 1. This fun little game in my head brings me ever so much joy.

Channel 4's Alternative Christmas Message this year is Olympic diver Tom Daley, talking about mental health and being gay. That's not very alternative. It's hardly like when they got Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to do it, or last year's fake-news one where the Queen said a load of deepfaked stuff.

I realise I'm going to sound like a whiny ungrateful bitch, but I really wish my in-laws weren't so tight.
We bought my son Mario Kart for the Switch and when we gave my mother-in-law some suggestions she said she'd get the steering wheel controller to go with it, so we sent her a link to to proper Nintendo one which was just under £15 in Argos. She's instead bought these really cheap off-brand ones for about half the price that's awkward to hold after a while and it's hit or miss whether the shoulder buttons will actually work through it. This is literally the only present she's bought him and she is not short of a bob or too.
My brother-in-law is very similar. Whatever you suggest to buy he'll go for a knock-off version from B&M or Home Bargains, even if it's just shaving a couple of quid off. They're obsessed with tat. I don't even know why it surprises me because they've been like this ever since I've known them.

I'm crossing my fingers for an abdication after the Platinum Jubilee. That's the goal; that's when she needs to last till. It's in February so there's hope. Then she can just chill out at home. If she actually tries to celebrate her own 70th anniversary, it won't end well.

I think its quite likely she'll step down too, and you're right about the timing for next year. First monarch to ever get to seventy years, that's as good a time as any to stop and have a rest.

Kunt would be better going for the week after Christmas. All the festive stuff and whatever ladbaby shite will drop like a rock,.

The Queen will not abdicate because there is absolutely no value to anyone in doing so. I have no idea why people think she might.
|>>|| No. 448562
Who, apart from Charles and Camilla, seriously wants the Queen to abdicate so he can ascend the throne? Nobody. Perhaps sneaky fucking Russians who think it'd weaken the country, but that's it.

After seeing that video of him trying to get the Disney boss to cast Meghan by basically going "please though", I think he's gone a bit off the rails.

I keep forgetting what day of the week it is and just now went to go do some shopping at the supermarket only to find it closed. Sunday trading laws are bullshit.
It's the doings of republicans and ear-fetishists.

I'm staying at my parents' house for Boxing Day. Most of the conversation had dried up within two hours so the rest of the day has largely been watching the TV in relative silence; I looked at a clock earlier convinced it was about half 10, but it wasn't even 6pm by that point. I'd also forgotten that my parents will boil almost any vegetable to death, so I had flavourless carrots and peas with unseasoned mashed potato and meat for my tea.
We watched the new James Bond film. Perhaps it's because the only other Daniel Craig Bond film I've seen is Casino Royale, so I wasn't invested in any of the characters, but I found it quite dull and hard to care about what was happening.

My Christmas was weird. Didn't end up going to girlfriend's parents' house as I got panicky, so spent Christmas Day alone. My Christmas dinner was paprika crisps and kabanosi from the only shop open near me, washed down with a few Stellas. Boxing Day I didn't up going to my girlfriend's parents' again, so spent the day drinking and playing video games. Probably one of the better Christmases I've had.

I didn't see a single lorry on the motorway today, which made the traffic flow so much better. They should make lorries drive at night instead or something.

I think a lot of them may be taking the day off after working on Christmas Day, which is apparently great for them because there's fuck all traffic. First BH after George Michael Day is always a nightmare, so seems like a good day to not be trying to drive 500 miles in 10 hours.

I've been given some of their chocolates for Christmas, stupid flavours like passion fruit or blackcurrant, and they are proper rank.

I'm convinced a massive pervert worked on series 11 of Taskmaster. In episode 5 there were two challenges that made me think this, firstly the self-bondage struggle and secondly the blind-person-rubs-mouth-on-objects-olympics. Now in episode 6 there has been a request for a painting using only one's feet and I'm left unsure if I want to continue. I feel like I'm watching people being groomed.

I've been with my girlfriend since we were teenagers. I remember being at her mum's house once and there was a dirty wash basket in the kitchen ready to go in, with a pair of her younger sister's knickers right on the top. They are the gooiest pair of knickers I've ever seen in my life, I can still vividly recollect how slimy they were, and it took all of my willpower not to give them a surreptitious rub/sniff/lick.

What is the appeal of dirty knickers? I stayed at a platonic female friend's house, and saw some mucky knickers at the top of her laundry basket. I smelt it and it smelt like gone off sour cream. Vile. How do people get off to mucky panties?

Forbidden fruit. I used to work with a lass that was conventionally very attractive but did absolutely nothing for me. One day she came in without showering after a long bike ride. I lost count of the amount of times I walked past her desk to get a good whiff of her BO.

>What is the appeal of dirty knickers?
The trouble with clean knickers is that you don't know where they've been.

I hate all types of someone else's body odour, but when a fit lass walks by, I sometimes take a deep breath of her and then in my mind I am already bonking her.
Not that anyone will ever know. Somebody watching me at that moment will barely even notice me breathing in.

Women smell good but it varies on what she's been doing and where she is on the menstrual cycle. There's some science to it. You absolutely can tell the difference between a woman who has been working out and the BO of someone who has sat on the couch all day.
Have you never buried your nose in a partners armpit or even giving her a bit of a lick?

I'm pretty sure I can smell when a lass is on her period, from several paces away, but I've never said it out loud because it just sounds psychopathic.

I'm pretty sure there's some legitimate-ish brain hormone chemistry stuff that makes you respond differently to a woman when she's on different phases of her cycle, but I'd be sceptical of anyone who claims to be able to consciously detect it.
When I had a girlfriend who was as much of a deviant furfag weirdo as me, we used to pretend that bit just after her period was when she's "in heat" and we had the most intense vigorous shags dirty taking each other about breeding and such. God it was hot.

You can't smell when a girl is on her period? You might have to think about the smell but I absolutely can pick up on the must of it. Useful for absolutely sod-all unless you're a salsa-dancer but it exists.
I also like to 'breed' a woman without getting furry about it. Although I've never found just after a period to be when horny week lands.

Period fannies are stinky. When my girlfriend goes to the toilet on her period, and I go in just after, a foul smell permeates the room. Worse than shit smell or piss smell.

The smell I'm talking about isn't that, it's just a gentle musk that emanates from them even if they're not firing jam out their snatch.
Unless your missus just needs medical attention. Hard one to bring up though.

Depends how much you like vegan mini sausage rolls. 49p a pack in Lidl, same for their vegetable spring rolls.

Probably my favourite thing about emigrating when I did is that I have no fucking clue who this bloke is.
