December

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh I'm busy right now. What with end-of-year research projects needing completion, Christmas shopping, social events (what? a social life, you say? 'stonishing!), and any number of super-duper-critical-must-happen-RIGHT-NOW! meetings, I'm swamped.

See, it's not just Zoe who's a busy bee these days. Or Dawn with her rehearsals and performances and things. It's me, too, which is why I'm a bit absent at the moment.

[sympathetic noises can be inserted here... although I suspect that derisive ones are more likely]

Forget about April being "the cruellest month" - it's December. See you in January. In the meantime, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all that.

Come to think of it, January's going to be horrible too...

iucajus: French for "juice of the iuca" - a traditional Incan Christmas drink.

The Inca didn't celebrate Christmas? Damn! And them up to their jujubes in poinsettias...

Iucajus is very good for the heart according to my superior medical knowledge...have many bottles of iucajus if you can. If not, have lots of wine, vokda, champagne or anything alcoholic which comes to hand.

And a very Merry Xmas and Happy Holidays and all that to you too!
