Well, another year, another Christmas. Fun stuff. Saw both sets of families. Food was eaten. Gifts were given and gotten. And while I got many nice things, I'm pleased as punch because I got Jess Nevins' Encyclopedia of Fantastic Victoriana. Yay! Also two volumes of Tales of the Shadowmen, edited by Jean-Marc and Randy Lofficier... (anthologies a la League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, with a much more multi-cultural feel to them. They look to be good reading.) I like books. How could you tell?

Even better, my muse came back from extended holiday. I was at church for midnight mass on Christmas Eve (I go once or twice a year to make sure I won't burst into flames...) and an idea hit me. I went back to the in-laws' afterwards and started. So now I'm 2000 words into the next Nick St. Claus story, a little thing I like to call "The Corpse Before Christmas." I am all sorts of gleeful that the idea-juice is flowing.

Tomorrow, I get to go home. Yay! Then I have to get my passport... let's just say a trip out of the country is in my near future. And not because I'm wanted by the authorities or anything. This time. Yet. Muaha.

So that's my update. Lots happened that didn't make it in here.

Hope everyone had a safe and decently happy holiday, and here's looking forward to the New Year.
