Merry Christmas 2009

Merry Christmas 2009

Merry Christmas!

This year has flown ridiculously fast, so much has happened I can scaresly believe it. In just over a year I’ve visited places I’d never thought I’d get to see by 23, started what I hope will be a long career in computer forensics, I’ve moved to a new city and met some pretty fascinating people. I’m tentatively chalking 2009 down as a win (with 4 days to go…).

Xmas this year has followed the usual script; a very lazy Christmas Day, gathering with the family on boxing day, then realising christmas TV is a bit rubbish and running out of things to do by the 27th (so Ben, Paul, Mat and I went to see Sherlock Holmes – verdict: not bad, what you might expect. Rubbish bad-guy (Archie from Rock’n’rolla dressed as Dracula)).

So Christmas Day passed as usual; got some nice gifts, mostly monies, nice stuff for my flat, alcohol, and books. Can’t really say fairer than that!

Dr Who was good I thought, although I’d hoped for a slightly more intimidating storyline with The Master (it seemed like the Doctor and by extension us, just had sympathy for the mental-but-slightly-endearingly-pathetic John Simm).

On boxing day, we went round to my aunts for food and the usual. The moral of this story is that we should never play Trivial Pursuits ever again. Or at least not the one dated 1986. We used Skype to do a video conference with my uncle Tony who recently emigrated to Canada – surprisingly low latency, considering.

<as I’m typing this I’ve got Peep Show on TVCatchup, it makes me want to cringe so much I might die.>

So yeah, all in all it’s been a good break – I’m looking forward to NYE’s in manchester, then back to work on the 4th.

I’m toying with the idea of planning a trip to New York in the new year, after speaking to Mat and Ben about it earlier I think it’s looking like a goer – I really loved my last flying visit, so it’d be amazing to visit again.

Till the next boring post,

Jim
