Right, I'm off

My chariot Nissan Maxima awaits... as do approximately 19 hours of planes, trains, automobiles, and hanging around at airports.

It'll be worth it for the two weeks of fun in the sun UK with friends and family. I probably won't be blogging, other than maybe the occasional photo. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas / Hanukkah / Winter Solstice / Summer Solstice / Festivus / Kwanzaa / New Year / Hogmanay / Winterval / Winterlude / Cephalopodmas / Other / None of the above!

See you in 2009!

Happy Cephalopodmas!

(You really, really should check out the Cephalopodmas link from the Digital Cuttlefish. Here it is again. My favourite part:

So we flew, over trees, over hills, over mountains,
(Keeping moist by, sometimes, flying low over fountains)
We flew over deserts, with sagebrush and cactus;
Some day we’ll invade, so it’s really good practice.
