holiday roundup

Life is hectic. Current events: the latest news of general significance is that there may be flowing water on Mars. I still hope to see it for myself at some point. The latest news of personal significance is that the final review board for my helicopter flight application (and all the other similar applications filed the same month nationally) convened today–I expect to have the authoritative yes or no this Friday. I am, even as we speak, siphoning all the luck I can get at from your spiritual gas tanks. I don’t know whether or not I need it all, but I’m pretty sure that I need it more than you do right now.

I have two part time jobs I acquired while filing the Army application. Both of them strike unexpectedly and require my full time, then leave off for a period giving me nothing to do. I am a small-bid freelance coder and substitute high-school teacher. These jobs aren’t the best, but I find that I’m not bad at keeping a schedule of frantic deadline rushes interspersed with complete R&R time. It meshes well with my sleep schedule, at least.

If for some reason you are tempted to send me Christmas presents, know that I love to read novels. Particularly really good ones. Everything else is pretty well taken care of for the moment.

I am thinking of convening a group of people for a holiday party of some sort. This is complicated by the fact that, with a very few exceptions, no two of the people I would invite live within an hour’s drive of each other, and the geographic center of our locations is out of driving range for everyone. I may have to just assume that everyone can get to Boston. Most likely, nothing will come of this unless I see interest. Consider this advance notice, at least.

Have your party at home, and have people sleep over!

How about Worcester for a party. It’s the center of the universe after all, remember?

Miss you.
