They started playing Xmas music at work today. Last year, they didn't stop playing Xmas music until mid-January. That's a potential 3 months of Santa Baby.

There ought to be a law.

Wow, that's rough. They usually don't start here (in the shops and what-not...no music at work in general thank god) until November. Very Happy

The typical tradition here is to begin the day after Thanksgiving and end right after Christmas. This should be prohibited by the Geneva Convention or something.

Plus I'm on day 10 of a 12-day 'week' and I'm about ready to bite someone.

God I love my job.

On the down-side, we're having a minor resurgence of load shedding. There was no power when I turned up at work yesterday, (despite not being scheduled) because the previously scheduled outage caused problems with the building's supply.

Then about 2 hours before the end of the day the power went out again.

Obviously that seriously interfered with with my plans for the day. ::sigh::

Oh, and heatwave conditions are imminent.

Made it without biting anybody, due more to the fear of dental bills than a lack of folks in need of biting.

I pretty much ignore it, so no worries on that score. Very Happy

Neither the GF nor I celebrate it, and we don't have much family, and certainly not nearby, to make gift buying etc. an issue.

That feels like a great sadness and wonderfully freeing at the same time.

Yeah ... I kinda love xmas ♥️🎄♥️ but mostly cuz its a family holiday. I like a low stress xmas ... but I work for it lol 😂

The kids love coming home for the week and think its magical ... which it is ... but 😉 takes a bit of prep and behind the scenes shit.

Ive no complaints tho .. its fun and we enjoy each other.

This year my daughters bringing a dude friend and his 3 kids and my Seudo adopted son Eddie will be home for xmas this year. He lives in Melbs .. near my eldest son. So it will be packed.

Ugh just been dodging a snake my black kitty Lachie caught. He had it ... let go of it ... I was doing some potting .. and it came my way .. I jumped ... the cat pounced on the snake again ... Im yelling at Lachie to drop it .. hes ignoring me .. of course 🙄 the snake wriggles out of his grasp ... heads back my way again ... FFS 🤦‍♀️ My shovel is in the back garden 😉 and Ive got a bag of potting mix and a bunch of pots 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ ... finally Lachie grabs it again and carries it off ... I hope I see him again, Lachie that is, not the snake. I can well do without them.

Eh, I'm fine with it. Not that I didn't love the whole family get-together thing we used to do when my mother and uncle were alive, but that was more to do with the surroundings and extravagance we used to enjoy in them.

Without that, I'm just as pleased to shut out the world over that period and ignore it. Very Happy

Eek, that's scary. Venomous snake? I wouldn't want my girls tangling with a snake either way. I probably don't give them due credit for the fluffy murder machines they're evolved to be, but mine are terrible huntresses. They see a bug, they'll poke at it a couple of times and lose interest.

Haha, cats usually come out on top in encounters with snakes, although not always. Dogs are not often as lucky though.

Yes a venomous brown snake ... we have a couple of venomous varieties.

Yes Av is right the cats .. touch wood have survived. Tho we lost our chocolate point raggie to a snake .. but thats when we first got here .. so they werent used to dealing with snakes.

My cats are all boys and very efficient killers, its always sad when the kill a rosella _ or a parakeet .. but they do eat every scrap of it from head to tail.

My dog however thinks she's anything but what she is .. and Im very careful to remove her immediately if I see a snake .. as she WILL come off worse.

The baby snakes we have atm are MORE venomous as juveniles as they will be as adults.

I have been killing them with my trusty shovel 😉 but apparently your not supposed to kill em ... so in December Im doing a weekend training course on catching and releasing snakes. Tho in truth if they come into my back yard where the dogs play ... Im gonna take my trusty shovel to them. 😬

All snakes are venomous in my part of Oz, so I keep the dogs well away from them. We had a whip snake passing through our yard a couple of years ago - it was only about half a metre long, but it would have taken care of my dogs! We've had a few tiger snakes sunbathing on the road - they're much scarier-looking, so everyone keeps a wide berth from them.

The most dangerous snakes belong to the front-fanged group, which .... include the tiger snake, brown snake, death adder, mulga or king brown snake and a few species of sea snake.

It's not that they're more venomous per se, but that as juveniles, they haven't learnt to control the amount of venom they release.

Where an adult snake will only release a measured amount of venom in a single bite, (in case it needs more for later), a juvenile will typically release all it's venom in the first bite, so the dose is much higher.
