she who keeps this diary

Ah, Christmas ... yes, Christmas.

The sacred rites of julkaka were performed, and the household tomtar were happy.

Gifts were exchanged without any noticeable forcing of smiles or lame exclamations of 'no, really, you shouldn't have ...'

There was ham and turkey with mashed potatoes and stuffing. There were green beans and rutabagas (not in the same dish).

There was pie. There was a very rich Pumpkin Pie with Spiced Walnut Streusel and there was an elegantly simple Apple Pie. There were no confectionary-related injuries.

Today, the office is nearly silent.
