Default Christmas Day Brunch Booked

Just did the needful at Radisson Blu with the option of selecting food from any or all of seven restaurants. Lubbly jubbly. Many are likely to be fully booked soon. Anybody else booked their festive brunch yet?

Just found out I'm being laid off, so I think I'll be lucky to have a turkey sandwich this year.

Its not all bad. They're paying me till the middle of Jan and keeping me on their visa for as long as it takes to find a job.

It wasn't that they wanted to lay me off. It's just revenues are down and I was supplementary to requirements.
