All Gone Quiet

Today is a day much like any other, except that teh intrawebs are much quieter than usual. Kevin is 5,000 miles away, and most of my friends are pretty far off too. If I was in California I’d be going to the SF in SF party, but I’m not so I’ll probably be spending most of the day online. It is, after all, a good time to get work done.

I am, of course, very lucky to be warm and dry with a roof over my head and an opportunity to over-eat. So one of the things I’ll be doing today is dropping some PayPal funds into various charities. In the meantime, if you happen to be reading this because you’ve gone online in search of companionship today, hello, and welcome. I’m here too.

  1. Here’s wishing you a grand and wonderful year ahead. May it bring enough of what you want to make you truly happy, and keep enough back so you’re surprised at what comes next.

  2. Thank you Bob, that’s a lovely sentiment. I do like happy surprises. I certainly got one this year.

    And of course the same sentiments come right back at you.

  3. Merry Christmas Cheryl,

    I’m sorry that you’re alone at this time but happy for you that you’re home safe and inside warm and dry.

    My wish for you is that the coming year bring lots of (but not TOO many) fascinating challenges and delightful outcomes.

    Ps. I loved that link to star clusters from your Finnish friends. My Northern cousins are pretty clever folk

    Hyvää Joulua to them too

  4. I’m hardly alone, Martha. Today I have chatted to people from in the USA, in Moscow, in Australia, in the Philippines and now in Estonia. I love the Internet.

  5. Ivan: Rina and Jacob, who run it, are awesome; so is raising lots of money for Variety. The fact that we have a great time and get to see lots of great writers and movies is an added bonus.

  6. I am lucky enough to have a partner around, but it’s seven years since I’ve had a Christmas day with my kids. Sometimes festive seasons carry an element of sadness, even when the memories are happy ones.
    Thinking of you. Have a good year – no, have a great year.

  7. The SFinSF party was great. Good people and good food with fine entertainment. A grand time. Rina and Jacob did an outstanding job getting the party organized.

  8. Glenda:

    Ah, Malaysia checking in as well. Thank you. Here’s hoping for a great year for both of us.


    Delighted to hear that the party went well. Sorry I could not have been there.
