Things that make me happy: late for yesterday or early for today
Or something.

I was made happy yesterday by:

a giggly toddler on the tube going in who I got to make funny faces at;

Departmental drinks, with lots of interesting people there including a few who are currently working elsewhere or on career breaks, and some nice beer;

The latest installment of our 2008 Christmas project, which is to watch the Star Wars films (the proper ones, you understand) with our children. Last night; the second half of The Empire Strikes Back. Jonathan was appalled by the cliffhanger ending; wanting to go straight into Return of the Jedi. We explained we were going to make him wait a day or two, and that this was Perfectly Reasonable because *we* had to wait for *years*.

I have been made happy today, so far, by:

It is my last day of work until 5 January! And, as you can see, it is none too busy either. The office is overflowing with high carb treats. Also satsumas.

I will have a D/G melodeon workshop with John Kirkpatrick at next year's Melodeons and More. Sadly, I was too late to get into the Tony Hall one, but never mind; he's playing at the folk club this weekend.

We managed to get tickets at the very last minute for this year's Whitehall carol service today, and it was stupendous. Glorious singing, splendid address from the Archbishop of York, readings from luminaries including Jack Straw and Sir Gus O'Donnell, and one of the great military brass bands (sadly I have no idea which as we were sat right at the back far beyond the point to which the programmes stretched).

Nope, the 2004 DVDs, in which Greebo shoots fractionally before Han. It's not perfect, but it's a lot better, because Han clearly isn't responding to a shot.

and one of the great military brass bands
Band of the Grenadier Guards.

Glorious indeed....

I'm enjoying these happies:)

Mine is that I've just seen on local Scottish news that the Naked Rambler just got jailed again today, still wearing no clothes!! His nuts must by TINY!!! (No I know it's not funny that a harmless guy gets jailed but the sight on TV of his pixellated groin was hilarious..)
