Merry After Christmas!

And now begins my favorite time of the year, that is, the 10 and a half month or so period before Christmas rears its overly saccharine head again sometime in the middle of next October. I am a bit of a Grinch, and it’s totally unjustified, because we just spent a very pleasant 3 days at the cottage, I totally overdosed on Christmas chocolates, and it was sort of a white Christmas, much better than last year’s mudfest but I’m really glad we didn’t have to go anywhere because the roads were totally treacherous, basically a big skating rink with hills.
I don’t really hate carp or potato salad, I just don’t find either of them particularly festive, and if I never see Home Alone again, I would never feel the lack.
I did get plenty of swag, including Yuval Harari’s Homo Deus, which I’m finding quite interesting, and the Autobiography of Mark Twain, Vol. 1, the kindle version, which is interesting because he’s an important historical character but from what I’ve read so far, it’s nowhere near his best writing. It’s a bit more like a diary, including lots of detail about how much various things cost, and who among his publishers and acquaintances were leeches and swindlers.
Tonight we’re going to watch “Don’t Look Up” and in a couple of days time we’re going to take a couple of days to visit Budapest, which I’m looking forward to very much. The only time we were there before was a couple of hours at the tail end of a longer trip, and I’ve wanted to give it a more proper viewing ever since.
Merry After Chrismas, everybody!
