Wondering who among students (and others) are sticking around through the winter break.  If you're just sitting around watching the snow pile higher and higher, maybe we should think about all getting together for an evening or something?

Obviously, I'm not local, but I do remember being stuck on campus during winter break. Grad assistant, doing data analysis that could have waited. Bleak, lonely, absolutely worst Christmas holiday ever.

So this is a good thing you're offering to do. God knows, that would have made that break much more palatable...

Well, we don't have any grad students, nor any work for them, so we're not making anyone lonely that way. But I know some students have apartments around here and may not be going back to their parents' for break. It'd be fun to get together for an evening or something.

I would, but I'm leaving first thing Monday and need to spend tomorrow actually organising all my nonsense. Maybe in January? We'll all be back early.

I'll be back sometime the week after next, and would love a get-together.

re: Local query
Which week is "week after next"? I mean, I'm not sure if this week (21st) or next week (28th) is "next week"....
But anyway. Early January?

Re: Local query
Sorry I was vague, I'd have responded sooner but internet in Connecticut is sort of on the catch-can-steal program (there's a floating wi-fi signal but it varies a LOT).

I will be returning to Vermont on the 26th-ish and will afterwards be there until February.

Early January, at least one evening together, at our house. Yes?

Laura and I return from Chicago next Monday and would love to come by for tea, fire and friendship.

Again, I'm not sure which Monday is "next" Monday - the 29th? J. will be heading South for four days, but you are welcome to come hang out.

She'll be back on the 1st. Which is around when I think everyone else will be showing up.

I think we should have one or two dinners and/or evenings together in early January. Yes?
