    I saw a comment regarding Christmas shopping,and it got me thinking now the rush has gone and normality is slowly creeping back.
    Does anybody actually go into town and do their Christmas shopping ?

    This year was the first time ive done 98% of my Christmas shopping online, I was sat in my dressing gown, plate of toast and a cup coffee browsing millions of shops(and porn :))at the touch of a button, getting the exact item I wanted and could compare the prices from hundreds of shops for that item, also every item arrived a day or two after my order, no stress no wandering around town in the rain getting jostled by shoppers or harassed by beggars or spice heads ,took me a couple of hours browsing and job done.the only time I had to physically go shopping was to john lewis which is round the corner and collect the items I bought online.

    after browsing this year may I suggest looking on uptheshitter.com everything a wife could need on there :)













    I made that site up, but I bet there's been a couple of hundred searches for it from bluemoon members :)

    Should have seen the absolute gridlock at the Trafford centre yesterday. Just can’t fathom why you’d choose to go there yesterday of all days just to buy all the old shit that they’ve not been able to get rid of yet. The Next sale makes me piss. Have you seen the absolute tat on their sale racks? Must have been trying to get rid of some of that shit for years!

    People queuing apparently. You would have to be clinically insane.

    I once queued for 7.5 hours for a ticket to 1999 play off final. Sister and mum said me and the old man were sad, ridiculous and stupid

    Daughter woke me up at the crack of dawn Boxing Day to drop her in Town for the big sales.
    She arrived home hrs later with 2 items which were full price!
    I can’t get my head around that nonsense!
