I’m starting to find ways to be excited about being one of three people left at Grimerud over the holidays. Besides the obvious: peace and quiet, forced rest, copious amounts of time to catch up on my reading and movie watching; I’ve thought of something else. I’m going to pretend I’m like Harry Potter staying at Hogwarts over the holidays…I mean, he saw it as a good thing, so why can’t I? Too bad I don’t have Ron and Hermione to keep me company, and house elves to make me a magical feast every day. But still. Whatever works, right?
