For everyone who's only back from the Christmas/New Year break this week - welcome, welcome. Has the start of 2019 and the holidays been good to you? That's this week's Off Topic.
It's been a little while since we've had some non-gaming chatter, and touching upon the joy of holidays is always a good way to start. New Year's was fairly muted personally, although not in a bad way. I was looking forward to a smaller, quieter affair, and just spending time with a small group of friends was far better than getting lost in a gargantuan crowd.
Christmas was a good chance to reconnect with family. My mother had been battling cancer for the majority of the year, to the point where everyone was genuinely concerned that she might not see the year out. Fortunately a bit of luck fell our way, and the family was together for a Christmas Eve dinner once more.
Beyond that, it was just a bit of work (skeleton staff and all) and camping under the aircon. Because the days immediately preceding Boxing Day were hot as balls, and our aircon only covers one room of the house.
What did you get up to over the Christmas and New Year? What'd you cook, where'd you go, and how was it?
