Holiday Spirit

As luck would have it on this only weekend between the Thanksgiving and New Year's when I'm in the Bay Area, the Locus holiday party was this afternoon and I was invited, so I made my way into the maze that is the roads up in the Oakland hills and managed to find my way to Locus House with only one wrong turn (which is better than I did last year) and also managed to park my van safely, which is also an achievement in those narrow roads. It was a very pleasant afternoon sitting around and talking and eating. Good food and good drink and good conversation. Nothing momentous happened. That's good, really. My life has been more interesting than desired for much of this year, so some quiet pleasant times are welcome.

BTW, so far the newly-rebuilt laptop is behaving itself, but it will be a long time before I'm likely to trust it very far. I do so much hope that this triple partition 137 GB thing does the trick.
