Tis the season to be jolly, so here I am gently winding down for Christmas. Rob sent me this the other day, which I thought very funny. Steve followed up with this; also good. The yearly quest for a pub open on Christmas Day is over, thanks to Google, which pointed me at the Nag's Head in Knightsbridge. Hurrah! Looks like I'll be heading back to Denver for the New Year, if I can ever make sense of the way that air fares keep going up and down.

Back finally in London after my month-long Denver trip. Attended the Qwest UK Christmas party on Monday, which involved moderate carnage---the remains of which are still in evidence in the flat (which is otherwise fine---thanks Natalie). Still listening to Orbital, settling back into working at home and enjoying the luxury of Radio 4. Off to xdate tonight with Becky and Mark. Eek!

Still here in Denver, having just spent a four-day thanksgiving weekend up in Vail learning to snowboard. Paul and Mary and Matt came too. (Steve says "Who is this jolly beardless fellow on the snowboard? did you just meet him by accident or something? why is he not moving? does he really need two people to hold him up?"). Looking forward to coming back to London on Thursday, and (with luck) finding the flat unscathed. Natalie's supposed to be looking in on it every now and then, but remains mostly silent. Album of the week: Orbital's "Back to Mine".
