That was Christmas... now for 2009...

Christmas Day was chilled. Played a couple of games of both Cash & Guns and Incan Gold with the family plus Katie's boyfriend (won one game of each too!). Ate possibly way too much - felt as stuffed as the turkey was by the time I left last night.

It was a very relaxed affair, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. I played on a Wii for the first time  - a few circuits of Super Mario Cart which i was soundly trounched by Dominique and Paul as they both have Wii's and seem to practice a fair bit by the sound of things (especially Dominque it seems...).

I'm popping down to Hammersmith in a few minutes to drop something off with Jasmina's aunt as they have visitors which can take it back to Serbia for her. Then it's back home and a relatively restful evening before returning to work tomorrow. I'll be at The Big Red tomorrow evening with assorted bodies and then off to my mothers to set-up the new computer Dominique and I brought her for Christmas. Then Sunday evening Dom's coming over to go through some of the Cubicle 7 accounts. Then Monday is here again and it's back into work as usual... mind you I have four days off over New Year and am looking forward to some prolonged no-prior-commitment time off :)

Had a couple of interesting things come through this week. Before Christmas I got a commission through for an essay in a forthcoming book (which I think is being released next August). It's only a short piece but it'll be the first bit of paid wriitng I've done for someone other than my own projects for sometime. The last non-Cubicle 7 release that had me in the credits was Out of the Box's "Apples to Apples British Isles Edion" and that was a couple of years ago now so it's been a bit overdue in getting myself back out there (although admittedly I've been fairly preoccupied with our own stuff). More on that later though when I see a press release about the project.

Today I've received an email about another proposal I've been involved in putting together (non Cubicle 7) and it's pretty much a preliminary 'yes'. So we're going to be sorting through contracts and, I suspect, will be ready for a press release in early/mid-January. It i something I've mentioned as in the works before (although not by name) and is one of the two big(ish) announcements that will have a big impact on me in 2009 (although I might bump that to three big(ish) announcements soon if some other plans I've being playing with come together and look like a viable proposition both finanace and time-wise).

Anyway, better put some shoes on and head out into the chilly London air. Certainly a lot fresher out there today than it has been over the last week.

Cathc you all laters and hope you had a good time yesterday!

Sounds like you had a nice Christymas, yay. I just find it amusing that you all were playing Wii too. I brought mine over to my parents, even though its the first year us kids are all grown up we have not forgotten the fun of video games, and MarioKart was a certain thing seeing as my sister loved it on the SNES and I wanted her to try the Wii version.
Have a nice day!

As we leave early-January behind and hurtle into mid-January can we expect an announcement soon? :)

I hope so. I'm basically waiting for all the paperwork to be completed and contracts agreed upon.

Once the ink has dried we can then make the announcement.

One of the guys involved has just had to fly back to the States to a death in the family so that might delay things for a week. But knowing him he'll still be co-ordinating things via email.
