Ah, Cardiff – we moved there after a 18 months in Dover, where the skies were permanently hazy grey and the locals aloof. Cardiff by comparison was sunny and the people were warm and welcoming. It gets my vote! Oh, and being able to go to Cardiff Arms Park for a rugby international was an distinct advantage!

Well done crabb, a distinct difference that not many would have made.

You lived in Cardiff for a whole year? My god, I spent a fortnight there one Sunday.

Ah, you’re a Welsh git, not a pommy bastard, PB?? 😉

Oops, I just googled it and discovered “Nadelik lowen” is Cornish. Just when I was about to make short man syndrome jokes – my profound apologies! (Maybe the Cornish are short too, to work down the tin mines!). The Welsh is “nadolig llawen”. so it’s very closely related, which tripped me up. We lived in Cardiff for a year and my kids learnt Welsh in school, and it’s the only phrase I and they (faintly)remember.

Anyway, Canberra is a ghost town now – hope all of you still here can enjoy the slow pace even if you have to work, and happy new year to you all!

oh, and I forgot. Thanks very much to the Team at RiotACT. you guys are great. really made my days go faster…

Overheard said :

What’s with this ‘we’ sh!t, boat man?!

boat man! great!

makes me feel better after being dragged to church at (shudder) 9.00 am this morning. at least the kids slept in…

many reasons to be grateful this year. I hope next year is as much fun for us all.

as was mentioned previously, if you are travelling, be safe. If at home, still be safe, and I will look forward to the discussions we have in the next year…

I’m so bored I could chew my own leg off to escape. But maybe I’ll chew someone else’s off instead…just for a laugh.

That would be the roasted turkey on our brand spanking barby there Miz.
And very tender it was too…mmmm.

It’s been an enjoyable year here on RA, so a great big thanks to the whole RA team – overlords and contributors alike.

Happy and safe break, and seez ya for more cutnthrust in a few days.

Mmm, smell that roast! Have a merry Xmas all.

I generally agree.

Enjoy your time off folks. Happy Summer Solstice celebrations to all!

Merry Christmas everyone. Looking forward to another entertaining year. Take Care !

Have a good one people and only make the pages of the Canberra Times if it’s for something good!!

Nadelik lowen!

Yes Merry Christmas Rioters, and as the Greeks used to say, “Moderation in all things, including moderation”

bon noel, dudes 😉 godspeed…

Thanks to everyone, and especially the admins for another fun and informative year of Rioting.

Merry Christmas everyone – stay safe and have a great holiday.

Yep, best wishes to everyone – even though I ‘hate’ youse all. 🙂

Eat, drink and be merry.

MERRY XMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tomorrow is a day off, but come Friday the gloves (boxing day – poor attempt at Xmas humour) will be back on.

Best wishes to all.

What’s with this ‘we’ sh!t, boat man?!

While we’re all making typos, Seasoned Gratings to the lot of you.

Many thanks to everyone who’s made this site so diverting, amusing, bemusing, c-musing, etc. this year. Yes, even the trolls have their place.

Whatever religious/quasi-religious celebration you’re making your own on the morrow, enjoy. And if you’re travelling great distances to do so, take one extra deep breath (two, if that’s what it takes) and be kind to your fellow travellers.

Get there late if you must, but do get there in one piece.

Cheers, Overheard in Buladelah (where even the trucks are making it a merry night before Xmas by staying away! Apart from that tanker. And that freight van. OK, I may have spoke too vroom.)

Merry Kiss’m’arse to all!! :o)

hehehe… I wish you all much happiness and mucher food!

merry christmas.

I look forward to much more cutting sarcasm and manufactured mirth in the new years.

thanks to the team for your generous efforts.

to all the contributors – even deadset arsehole losers like realityskin and eyeball – stay safe enough to continue your trolling post xmas.

Thanks to BerraBoy for the following seasons wishes, but Che beat you to it! Best of luck for next year. Don’t touch that URL, there’s more good stuff coming this year & into 2009!!!

How can you say merry Christmas in a single thread and hope it reaches every Rioters? You can’t so I thoght Thread dedicated to thsi purposes might be a good idea.

So, merry christmas, hannakah, Kwanza etc… to you all. I wishe you a very merry and safe Holiday period. I hope each of you gets what you want and want what you get. I look forward to convesing with you over Xmas and in 2009.

Merry Xmas,
