So, it's 2015. No flying cars, or lunar colonies, but I do have a pocket computer, electronic books and indirect access to zeroth generation replicators.
It's been a pleasant week. Flew home from Berlin, bitter about the cockups that meant that Berlin Brandenburg still isn't open. But I got home safely, got in, wrapped presents, left to see friends for Christmas Eve drinks. For complicated reasons which I may go into later, I got invited to a party and the people there were so friendly that it was hard to leave.
Christmas was a nice enough affair. Kids seemed to have a good time. Nephew liked the magic set I got him, after a little coaxing from the grownups. Niece seemed to enjoy the playdoh hair kit. I received a copy of Cash and Guns, a bowler hat, a segway rally voucher, and socks. Plus a chocolate-chilli russian roulette game. Cool stuff. Hat needs an outfit to go with it. Will need to think about that.
Managed to get to Woking for boardgaming and seeing people I'd not seen for ever! That was fun. Needed to get back before it was too late though, so had to adandon the pandemic before it was cured. Aso discovered Pandemic is an intriguing game. Fun times were had.
And then we reached New Year! flickums
was there!! Hugs were had!!!! There was some other stuff going on as well, but since we hadn't seen each other since August, I did find myself a little distracted. Apparently we're "adorably cute" together.
New year chimed! Got a kiss at midnight (yay!). Then we went out and saw some fireworks! And heard someone ringing a bell and shouting Happy New Year!
Didn't manage to play the russian roulette game. Did chat to other people a bit. It was certainly an awesome New Year party.
Happy NEw Year all. Hope 2015 works for the rest of you!
