By the way, thanks to one and all who have agreed to do a guest column for the Ludic Log while I'm away on vacation over Christmas. Your help is hugely appreciated, and gifts are on their way. If you've been thinking about doing a guest column, IT'S NOT TOO LATE! You have until Friday to submit an entry, so please, if you've wanted to be among the rarefied ranks of the Ludic Log Guest Writers -- widely recognized as the finest people on Earth -- write to me as soon as possible at gueststar at ludickid dot com.
Finally, do not miss Christmas Eve's Ludic Log. I guarantee that you will be delighted and amazed.
