I'm a bit hmm about people passing off the ISS as 'santa' actually. It's an amazing thing in its own right with 11 people on board doing a risky job and away from family for Christmas and beyond.... Seems unfair people are just interested for one day

You loathe people, presumably friends, sharing with you something they think you might like to know about?

Please be my friend, please. I don't have enough people like you in my life!!! thanks thanks thanks

Bah Humbug to you too!

Gosh some people having a bit of fun with their kids tracking Santa...

Feed them gruel! That's what I say.

I think its the ' yes i have older kids and we did that YEARS ago" which is a BAD thing to think. * whips self*

Or when some fucker says ' ooh we make footprint out of icing sugar"


or ' we do elf on a frigging shelf'

Perhaps you should just "fuck off". Remove yourself from the situation and their lives

ElizabethHoover Wed 24-Dec-14 11:27:07

ElizabethHoover Wed 24-Dec-14 11:27:39
