Merry Christmas.

Off now. I'll be back Monday, I think. Have a good time until then.

I suddenly realised what my life was lacking: you on my F'List.

Should fix that.

Goodness. Yes. I'd managed to forget you had one, if I ever knew.

Hello again. How was the festering season for you?
It's going well so far. Not back at work for another week, which is a plus. Although I should really overhaul my office before then (oh, the joys of working from home).

I might even make it to Edinburgh in '05.

Good luck with both of those. I might possibly make Cambridge, but don't hold your breath.
If you do decide to come down, be sure to give me advance warning. I'm not in Cambridge that often these days.
