    I'm curious about you guys. I figure most of you have lives and will not be doing IM on Christmas.


    I've been so obsessed with getting out of my bad situation that holidays don't mean anything to me anymore, so I'll be motivated to work on Christmas. It's not a magical day that makes all my problems disappear.

    What do you guys think?

    I will be spending time online on xmas morning mainly because my TV has blown up. The rest of the day will be spent stuffing my face and enjoying a drink or two.

    Of course I will, what else is there? Haven't really ever celebrated anything, and in the past year I've also pretty much dropped out of weekends so that I can focus on work.

    Christmas doesnt mean anything to me. will be working just as much or as little as any other day. as a matter of fact, no holiday means anything to me. weekend also dont mean anything.

    I am going to be spending Christmas eve with loved ones and then Christmas day I will be working. It's really just another day for me as with every day or "holiday". I take it as it comes and live in the now, I try not to use labels and stuff like that. Christmas can happen any day you choose, you don't have to follow society.

    I cannot help myself from doing things to my websites, it is more like an obsession not a job. And like the above, not really interested in Christmas, it is just the time where your local pub becomes full of strange pissed people.

    I'll be around in a limited capacity. Having a few people over for Christmas and cooking dinner, but I'll still keep up with emails etc on my phone.

    A little work, most of my day will be with family and maybe I'll get a run in. Like they say when you take that last breath you won't be saying, "Damn, I should have spent more time on that SB blast." Everything in moderation and balance in life.

    No, not me. My "digital slaves" will be busy posting links, etc. as they normally do night and day, but for me it'll first be church then off to see family.
