That's it. I have been Christmas shopping for the last time in 2001. The town centre was packed. I went out specifically to get some nice chocolates to have with our coffee after Christmas dinner tomorrow, and the shelves were bare. Has the place been struck by Christmas shoppers or looters?
I managed to survive yesterday's meal by distracting my small cousins. I made them jumping frogs out of the paper menus, which they proceeded to flick around the table and at the barmen. Until one had a close call with my grandmother's liebfraumilch and she dictated that they had better sit quietly and colour them in with crayons instead. Grownups are no fun.
Now I'm off to sit down for a Christmas Eve dinner consisting of steak and chips. Delicious.
A very happy Christmas to everyone.

Trek Two Years Ago
Below are some of the more important headlines from TrekToday on Friday December 24, 1999:
- Robert Duncan McNeill's future plans
In a new interview, the Tom Paris actor spoke about what he'd like to do in television after Voyager:
"I would like to be someone who helps create ideas for TV shows and movies. I'd like to help figure out how to shoot some-thing that a studio wants to make. I already took a movie of the week to UPN that I am a credited producer on; I actually was supposed to direct, but I wasn't available because of our series. The studio wanted to make it right away; they were real excited. The good news is, they bought something that I found; the bad news is I wasn't available to direct it, and that was the point!"
