Wooh! sounds great! I'm not certain I've ever read the story, but this sounds like it's going to be awesome.

It sounds good, indeed. :) It's just a shame that us Antipodeans will miss out ... =(
Looks like we won't! In Australia, the Abominable Snowbaby will be airing on Channel 10 at 6pm on Christmas Day (Sat 25th December). And presumably will be available on the 10play on demand app afterwards.

YAY! :) Thanks for letting me know, Molokov - I'll set an alarm on my phone to remind me next Saturday. ;)

(... and log into this forum afterwards to share my thoughts and all) ;)

Oh, POOH! I missed it. :(

In my case, I have a good reason. Last Saturday (the one before Christmas), I did several concerts at St Paul's Cathedral (the major church in my city). A few days afterwards, the Federal Department of Health -- the top medical body in the country -- sent an SMS to me and everyone else who was there, telling everyone that one of the people there had COVID and didn't know it, and urging everyone to get tested. :eek:

I went to get tested the next day (Christmas Eve), and spent almost the entire weekend worried sick, and on pins and cushions. :( I tried so hard to be patient and stay safe throughout this entire pandemic, and now some irresponsible idiot was spreading this thing, etc. etc. :( So, with all the worry and the stress, I forgot this was on. :(

(P.S. I got a reply on Boxing Day, telling me that I was safe. Hooray!) :)

Nope, no catch for me. :( Also, the family's gone away and I'm house-sitting for my parents. *shrug* Oh well.

I'm still angry at that selfish so-and-so who put us all in danger. :mad: And why did the Department of Health take five days to inform us all of this, the day before Christmas Eve? Sigh ... :(
