I’m headed into the mountains for a bit. Friends of ours have invited us to their cabin for an “eve-of-Christmas-eve evening,” and I’ve been led to understand that the closest tie with civilization will be an FM radio reciever (no transmitter.) I’m betting my cellphone will be useless except as a clock, and that the wireless card in my laptop will visibly shiver from loneliness.
I’m bringing the laptop anyway. Who knows when inspiration might strike? I’m not about to hand-write my notes.
I’m also bringing Star Munchkin, Grave Robbers from Outer Space, Falling, UNO, and Phase 10. Oh, and a proper boom-box, my iPod, and my iPod FM transmitter. I can’t use it to call for help, but I can broadcast christmas music to any reciever within about 5 meters.
I’ll be back by Christmas Eve. If I don’t post anything before then, Merry Christmas everybody. Be safe, be kind, be joyous, be well.
