Long shift at work today and long shift tomorrow, fortunately with the shop open later these are time-slipped so I don’t have to be up until the crack of noon. Even so just a quick Saturday one. Most of you are out boozing anyway, lucky swines. Work ends for me at 6 pm Christmas eve, I have two early starts Monday and Tuesday so I will have some catching up to do on Wednesday evening.
I’m trying to get a little Christmas tale for Christmas day instead of the usual rage-fest. Trying to keep it as short as possible so bleary eyes can manage to read it. Short ones are now harder to write than long ones!
Anyway, in lieu of a tipsy tirade, here are what some other people have put effort into.
Al Jahom writes of the ban on smoking in cars in his usual restrained manner.
Junican suggests the whole plain-packaging thing might have been a bait-and-switch.
James Higham sees ‘Panoptica’ on the edge of reality.
As for me, Christmas is nearly over and I can soon get back to some semblance of normality. Now I’d better sleep – tomorrow (tonight!) I finish at 10 pm and will be back in there the next morning at 10 am. That is going to hurt.
