Today is the last day I’ll be in the office until January. Like many businesses, my company effectively shuts down for the week between Christmas and New Years. We still have some staff in and we’re producing content and closing the books but the feeling is different than other times of the year. I’ve always liked this end-of-the-year time. Until the economy tanked we always had office decorating contests and lots of holiday food from suppliers. I’m fine with the way it is now. Christmas treats, no matter how good, are one temptation I’m happy to avoid.
By the way, check out new stuff from Adventure Girl who is on a skiing tour of NY state, northern Vermont and eastern Quebec. Sedentary Man has a new column about Steampunk, a style genre that he explained to me at last weeks holiday party that I still don’t quite get but there’s some cool looking stuff!
