(Yeah, ecclectic much?)

I also have a large pile of books for the next few days. In less than five hours (ie, when my wife gets off work) we’re taking off for Calgary to spend Christmas with my family tonight, and the inlaws tomorrow morning. Yay for chinooks and snow-free highways, I’ve gotta say. Also, for buying most of the people on my list books, for they are easy to wrap and transport.

Merry Christmas, and best seasonal-type multidenominational greetings all around, everyone!
