bernard

and this thing in the stock which tells time

Contemporary . . . compatriot . . . counterpart.

Sometimes it takes me a few tries to find the word I want. And then it's my sister who actually supplies the correct word. I've been out of school for less than two years, and my vocabulary suffers. Alas.

I am taking the day off work tomorrow. Hooray for personal days!

When I was small, I used to refer to the day before Christmas Eve as "Christmas Adam". (Adam and Eve, you see.) Who am I kidding . . . I still do that. So happy Christmas Adam, everyone. If you're lucky, maybe I'll update more later tonight, but right now I have to go watch Scrooge. You do what you gotta do.
