Week 197: festivities
Stopped coughing in time for the festivities. Covonia Chesty Cough Mixture (Non Drowsy) is one hell of a drug, but also deploying goblin mode for two days helped.
There’s a rich vein of tweets etc saying baby Jesus was the original nepo baby, but think for a moment, what about King Herod? Herod’s father wasn’t a king, but it seems likely his friendship with Julius Caesar got his son the job, and that has the stink of the old boy network.
Did all my shopping on Christmas Eve, and it was quiet, so I recommend that, and I hope all the smug organised people who spent the preceding weeks queuing and elbowing their way through the crowds now feel silly.
All the buzz about how great The White Lotus is was slightly annoying, but you know, they have a point. A thoughtless internet poster slightly spoilt the ending of the second serie, but really spoiling things isn’t a thing.
Have a nice week. I might get a new ice cube tray.
