It's the last day of work before the holiday and I am staring down a temporarily intractable problem. I know that a solution exists, but I would like to actually find a good approach rather than just hacking something together, as this code will be executed a lot.
We took Katie and Julie out for brunch at The Bacon Place earlier today. This means that they had a chance to meet Santa and that Gretchen and I are very full. :)
Gretchen is downstairs wrapping presents, because Christmas has crept up on us rather quickly this year -- in more or less the mode of a oncoming freight train. Julie is playing Minecraft, I having resuscitated the network connection for the computer she's using; while Katie is downstairs playing with the neighbor girls.
But the Christmas shopping is finally done, which is a good thing.
I hope that you all have a Merry Christmas -- or the alternative holiday of your choice. :)
