I don’t do introspection in public, so no memetic list of how I’ve been this year (who am I kidding).

Thanks to all for dropping by. Was great to see everyone and run out of chairs. Was also great amusing to be serenaded by the neighbours’ anarchist karaoke. Also, discovered a new Mitochondrion effect – it can freak cats out. All the way out. Possibly as far as Dorking.

As the Geek Mansion will sadly be lacking the two occupants who are best at cooking, A&I will be entertaining guests at home in the evening of Xmas Day. This means you! From 6 pm.

I just told the head of the New Zealand Navy where to go. And then I showed him. There may have been gestures. Also, I note that the government’s policy of non-discriminatory hiring practices extends to the chief of the Navy’s staff – one of them appears to be a Sith Lord.)

I’ve variously called C.S. Lewis arrogant, smug and hypocritical. This rant became too long for a comment, so lucky for all of you, here it is: C.S. Lewis represents a particular strain of Englishness. His kind are not to blame for the death of British civilisation, but are responsible for the failure to understand it …
