Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and all that standard stuff!

One of my coworkers has taken to saying “Happy Ho-ho” instead of “Merry Christmas” – I guess that’s a cross between the two with a little secular Santa-ism thrown in? That aside, best wishes for the season and hopefully you all get a chance to get together with your families. My extended family on my dad’s side has called off the usual gathering as we’ve all been given the flu by the merry old St. Nick. Hopefully we’ll be able to reschedule before I head back to Montréal on the 4th! My mom’s side is mostly in Australia so that gathering will have to wait a few years. 

Looked like we were almost going to have a white Christmas here in Vancouver – loads of snow late last week but it’s mostly melted now. My neighbour’s very enterprising kid built an igloo on his front lawn but it caved in after a few days. The one built by my downstairs neighbours in Montréal will be there until April, most likely. I’d almost forgotten what winter on the coast is like…

Sorry for the very sparse posting this year, by the by – posting more often is one of my New Year’s Resolutions. I’ll start it in 6 days, I swear!
