Merry Christmas

Ho ho ho, and welcome to the season of indulgence. And various other things too, of course, but from where I half-recline right now, full to bursting of good food and very good wine (if I say so myself, having chosen and imported it double-bubblepack-wrapped quadruple-plastic-bagged and wadded up tightly in my clothes) the indulgence seems most evident.

I wish all my readers a pleasant holiday, in the mode and style of their choice.

What, that's not enough? OK, a weather report: it's +4°C and raining like hell. Bah.

Reading lots, finished Coupland's "jPod" (a work of meretricious beauty, less than the sum of its parts) and now reading Atwood's "The handmaid's tale" (darker, deeper, altogether more interesting, though I strongly suspect that it will not even remotely end with happily ever after).

Some interesting synchronicity... I just started Handmaid's Tale also. We'll have to compare notes along the way. :)

Hope your Holiday of Indulgence was happy and filled with fun!

Hi Udge, and merry holidays to you too. I started that Atwood and never finished it -- it was just too grim for me -- but I should go back and do it, being Canadian now and all. Enjoy all that good wine!

Hope you had a splendid Christmas, hope it stops raining and you can have your beloved snow! On the bright side, you're no longer freezing, yes?

Coupland wrote Microserfs, which remains thoroughly poignant and full of good things like hope and love and growth, I have long since forgiven him for all his other rubbish.
