Merry Christmas!

Here are two questions for you:

1. What do you like most about your Christmas this year?

2. What will you do differently next year to have an even better Christmas?

Personally, I’m most looking forward to our traditional Christmas dinner with some friends from 1FROG at the always-fantastic Opus Restaurant in Littleton.

Unfortunately, I won’t be doing much else with my day. Paul left bright and early this morning to go to work; he’ll be done around 3 pm. I’m slated to do a full measure of dissertation writing today, as chapter seven has taken me a bit longer than I supposed, albeit for the very good reason that I’ve had develop some major new ideas in it.

Next year, I plan to enjoy Christmas by having more of a Christmas. I’d like to put up some decorations, as well as do some holiday-inspired cooking. That will be possible because I’ll be a doctor of philosophy, rather than a mere dissertating grunt of a graduate student!

Oh, and I almost forgot: Here’s a truly delightful tale — no kidding this time — that I read for the first time just a few weeks ago: “Merry Gravmas” by James P. Hogan. It’s a short short story, but quite memorable: I’ve found myself mulling over the prospect of such a rational future more than a few times since I first read it.

Hence, Merry Gravmas!
