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?
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!
