Big plans for The Holiday Which Can Not Be Named: Have purchased tickets to visit the Old Country with Andrea.
We will jet away on December 15 and return on January 3, which will give us almost three weeks to gorge on Swedish Christmas food, spend time with my nephew whom I’ve never met, visit with my grandparents, and—if the Weather Gods permit—do lots of playing in the snow.
Unfortunately my wife will not be able to accompany us, which is sub-optimal but unavoidable this year. We’ll try to make up for it with plenty of video conferencing.
Remember: Cool people celebrate Christmas on the 24th.
Includes Hollywood Dead, Tales from the Loop, Things from the Flood, The Court of Broken Knives, and Port of Shadows.
Nic has a retinal tear and has his vision is saved by a laser.
Includes The Storm Before the Storm, White Trash, Calypso, Tell the Machine Goodnight, Prince of Fools, and Provenance.
The Internet tells Nic to install Ubiquiti gear in his house, so he does, and now he has thoughts.
What I wish I’d known when I started podcasting.
Nic starts a new podcast about—gasp!—American sports.
Mostly excellent non-fiction in this installment. Includes Fantasyland, The Miracle of Dunkirk, Das Reich, The Undoing Project, Waiting for the Punch, Vacationland and Points of Impact.
