(Or happy christmas. Whatever. You know what I mean. anyway)

I know I’ve been veh quiet lately. I have been writing in other places that you already know about, and that (well, that and spam deleting, as always) have taken up my little sparce little winter store of spare energy not taken by work. But now it is Christmas. Yay! Holiday! Till TUESDAY!

Incidentally, the Christmas appeal 2005 is still going. So far you, my lovely readers, have given nearly 400 after I asked for donations. I was No1 fundraiser for a while but now I’m not. And I’m getting a bit competititive about it: can anyone help?
