WE ARE FULL THROTTLE running into a supersized Christmas dinner and now know we don't have enough of each item to serve eight people simultaneously. We night have known that would be the result of letting two cats and a dog occasionally use proper bowls for their own. The plan: chef stands and serves and no one is the wiser.
On a related note, there's absolutely no slowdown in the flow coming through my newsreader. I didn't have a broadband connection last Christmas and never saw the live web during the holidays. With both Twitter nudging me several times an hour on my mobile phone and my unread items growing instead of diminishing this weekend, I may need to revise who drops into my newscatcher because I don't like doing mass deletions just to stay abreast of the flow.
