At the moment, I'm having problems with the caterer. He's being stubborn on supplying crisps.

Service announcement: don't drink and drive. Be considerate on the road this holiday season. Practice some patience. And always give way to emergency service vehicles like the police, the ambos, and the firies...especially the firies cos you never know when you're gonna need those jaws of life.

There are way more sedate and less painful ways to deal with boredom this Christmas. Boardgame anyone? Solo game? Link
