What's in a name?

Gulliver stems from the protagonist 'Gully Foyle' from Alfred Bester's The Stars My Destination. Xerxes is in honour of the Persian king 486 to 465 BC. Conroy is Morgan's maternal grandfather's surname.

Santa 2013

Santa asked Gully what he wanted for Christmas and Gully said, "I have a lot of lego at home," and that there was nothing he needed from Santa. 

Then Santa asked if Gully had any questions for him, to which Gully replied, "how do you get down the chimney?". Santa didn't have an answer to Gully's satisfaction given the physics. But, we all moved on.

Gully also wanted to discuss the reindeer, Rudolf, his own Santa hat and shirt and a myriad of other topics whilst relaxing at the North Pole. Even the photographers were agog that he was so relaxed, chatty and conversational. I don't think they believed he was 2-going-on-3.

Merry Christmas

It has been a very busy 2013. I am looking forward to updating everyone on the highlights of 2013 after Christmas. But, for now, peace, hope and joy.
