    Same...my sis and mom have spent all month watching Christmas movies every single day. I am not to *that* level...but the past few years this holiday has been really tough. This year I just said fuck it, embrace it. Might watch Elf after this and make another Christmas crochet bunting.

    Well, I hope your holiday season has been better this year.

    It can be a depressing time of year. Many people have high expectations for it so there's bound to be some disappointment ultimately. I just try to have a little fun and not worry about it. To me, it's just another day really.

    Merry Christmas to everyone still around who won't be looking in tomorrow!

    I kind of did my Christmas the last couple of days, so I get to sleep in and have a restful day tomorrow.

    And if that free Dell Precision works, start building my new 4-6 monitor Turking system.

    I've smoked on planes, buses, in grocery stores, arcades, malls, restaurant kitchens, public restrooms... basically everywhere. Thank god we did away with all of that. Smoking indoors is too much, unless you are smoking at the time. Back then, everything smelled like butts.

    Best way to be.:)

    Eww. Sorry, you smell/taste like booze which would kick my gag reflex into overtime. Plus, just couldn't really imagine making out with anyone. It's not you... it's everyone.:p Thanks for the offer though. I'm sure there are a bunch of people who would make out with you. Just gotta drop your standards a hair. I'm unattainable. I'll still be your friend though.

    In college, this guy who lived next to me in the dorms had a thing he did to his women friends at Christmas. He'd knock on your door and say, "Hey, could you come here for a moment?" He had mistletoe above the interior entrance to his room. When you walked in, he'd say, "Oh, you just walked under the mistletoe. Now, I have to kiss you." I guess he thought that was pretty clever.

    Indeed it can be, and indeed it is. I've had to deal w/ multiple instances of trauma around the holidays (most recently
    our cat got stuck in the fake Christmas tree a few years ago and died)
    and after years of feeling very down, this year I painted my nails red and green. Like, HOHOHOWTF?! The cheer is nice. Wanting this part of the year over ASAP is also nice, and should be more acceptable than it is. We should be kinder to ourselves and others regardless. @Jerami@Jerami pass that medication

    Sorry that happened to you. Both of my grandparents, who did a significant part of my rearing, both died 3 years ago in November then December, one before each holiday. I didn't celebrate Christmas then and never started back up. I just think that there's a lot of self-imposed stress that goes on for days, all for one semi-great day. That's why I don't. I would if I was with someone who wanted to celebrate the way it should be but, I'm not getting into "commercial Christmas" ever again. That's why I don't. But, also, seeing the low income girl who works at the gas station across the street say, "I'm so sad because I only have like $500 to spend on my kid." I can't make that right in my brain. That kid is only going to use about half of what you get them.

    What's not working? Can you not sign in? Are there no HITs? Are you getting an error? Mturk is working fine at the moment, for me, however slow it may be.

    Feel free to translate this but, I only speak English. Sorry.
