Merry War, Christmas is Over
So, not quite out of the woods yet, but the wardrobe is nearby. It's been adequate in case you ask. Could have been pleasant if insomnia hadn't kept me awake all night. Not even Half Awake. Raw, red eyed and prickly. No major upsets though. Still on speaking terms with the nearest and dearest. Managed to keep a civil tongue in my head, and I have to admit, a couple of the items I received will not have to go back. Most will of course, but the strike rate is well up on previous years.
Still waiting for a decent incident somewhere in the world to give the evening some perspective. Perhaps there'll be a revolution in the Ukraine. Another Ceaucescu or a gas explosion in the midlands. Seems like it might snow which will make driving more adventurous.
Glad to see that sales are pouring .. well tricking in, but at least Half Awake has lost her virginity. I might have to postpone the winter cruise, but I can live with that.
An evening of Dennis Potter could be pleasant, but I will be checking the forum from time to time, and listening out for the delightful chime of the cash register and minding the store. I should be on triple time for this.
Enjoy what's left of this most precious of days.
