Merry Christmas all.  I saw that DT-side started a thread, but since many of us don't venture into those scary waters, I felt the need to start one here.

I raise a toast to my bestest friends - internet or not, this I'm closer with this community than I am with any physical one, and am closer to many more people here than I am with anyone else.

I raise my steaming hot cup of coffee to you all.

Merry Christmas, Chad - and to all of you DTFers! Happy festivus!

Us Swedes celebrate on the 24th, but we will continue today by going to my older sister.

Oh, and I became an uncle last night  :hat

While our country mostly celebrates it after the New Year, and while I usually don't do it at all, for the last few years I've been active at DTF I started celebrating the fact that I have been lucky to be a part of this fine community, on this day. I've made lots of friends there and it has literally become my home at social media. Love you all, folks.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Most annoying sample from a movie to be used in a song.

That being said, I hope all my friends and fellow forum members have a wonderful holiday. As Chad said, I feel closer to people here and this community as a whole than I do to most people in my "real" life. That probably says more about my life outside the forum, but anyway.

Christmas was always a magical time in my youth. I have such fond memories. Then when I became an adult, it became a bit more abstract and it lost its meaning with me as my life left the tracks a bit. Having kids and sharing with them the joys of the holidays has restored that magical feeling in me.

Merry Christmas to everybody, though I don't know one of you personally, this is my favorite internet hangout. You guys and girls rule.

This is so true for me as well.

I think it says a lot about the people here, when so many of us re-iterate the same thing.  I'm just blessed that I've had the chance to meet many members in person.

Yeah, I mean the fact that somebody would publicly type those three words in a state where cannabis isn't legal and at a time of the morning when he probably hasn't had anything to drink yet, is a true testament to the miraculous nature of this place.

Since we bought a house, most of the upcoming expenditures are going to be towards that.  None-the-less, I got

Scotch sampler packs of Glenmorangie, Glengoyne, and The Glenlivet
Horizon Zero Down (been wanting this for almost a year)
'Brock Dad' Tee-shirt (jingle.daughter goes to Brock University)
Housecoat (the one I'd had up to this point was about 25 years old!)
Flavoured coffees - YAY!  Need more though

Tickets from my GF to see DT in March
A Nintendo Switch (Gift to us from GF's Dad).
A sore throat.
Socks.
A totally unauthorized 200 in 1 handheld game thing from China that has a lot of classic NES games on it.
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

What is a housecoat? Is that Canadian for a bathrobe? (

Horizon Zero Dawn is a video game, Tim. A really, really good game. Let's just hope that's what he means.

If so, I predict we'll be seeing a lot less of j-boy for a while...

Ya know, I was wondering as I typed that post 'maybe I should specify for TAC that Horizon Zero Dawn is a PS4 game'  ... but then I realized I'd have to kill myself because I probably need to also explain what a PS4 is.

Apparently in the US 'housecoat' and 'bathrobe' are the same garment distinguished whether it's worn by a woman or man.  Up here... same fucking thing.  I usually wear the thing around the whole house, not just in the bathroom and/or after baths.

Edit - Gregg is correct with my typo.

So Housecoat is masculine and Bathrobe is feminine? I've never heard of a housecoat. Like when we check into a hotel, there's usually two bathrobes hanging in the closet. I've never considered that one of them might actually be a housecoat. :lol
