December is here, and the Spirit of Christmas is starting to stir in me.
I am wearing a Christmas t-shirt.
My DVD of "A Christmas Story" is close at hand.
I have bought a Christmas present (Secret Santa at work), and tried to buy another but failed, as it was sold out. I will have to hit Amazon for that, I guess!
Spot is still living with us. My mum is back at home, but not up to walking Spot just yet so he is living with us and visiting, which seems to work well. Spot is enjoying having two homes at the moment, trying to stop the cats taking charge of my mum's house when he visits...
Work has changed a fair bit in recent months, as I have been relieved of my more mundane work and given more time to work on mapping exercises for students as well as some headroom to start probing some research interests. All good stuff, but more taxing on the brain. No more "oh I feel like doing something that doesn't need thought, I will update the registers". No, my brain is engaged all day, which is good, very good, but it does mean that I am losing my grip on my Sci-fi novel, which is a shame. I am hoping that I will adjust and be able to get back to it. I was enjoying it. The heroes have just "stolen" a battle cruiser and flown off to see what is really happening in the galaxy... I used quotes above because can the Galactic Emperor really steal a ship that belongs to his own navy? If Obama decided to take Airforce 1 for a quick fly around would it be thought of as stealing? Discuss :-)
