Saturnalia.

A generally merry solstice related possibly secular, possibly religious and possibly part of state official soulless religion festival to you all. I remain alive, and mourning the fact that I am not Russian (have finally taken Dr Short's advice and have russian novels out from the library for Christmas).

Speaking of Russian novels, if anyone actually reads this, Lara from Dr Zhivago is undoubtedly an icon (student, classicist, worries a lot, is ruined but no-one notices this in the rest of the novel, shoots someone). And Dr Zhivago should be used as a GCSE study guide.

Anyway, am off to drink fizzy wine and change for midnight mass.

Ah it's not all that great to be russian you know. You generally end up blond, and turning into a hag as soon as you hit 30, see not all that fun.

yes, but they are rather cool, and include Denisov, Raskolnikov and Karensky.

does this mean I'm a 1/4 rather cool? aww, that'll come in handy when it's too hot in the summer time :D

You missed out shklovsky, dostoyevsky and rachmaninov, tut tut.
