And… Curtain.

I guess you know it’s been a good Christmas day when you finally get to settle into the couch at eleven o’clock at night, with just an hour left until midnight, and all that you can really recall of the day is that you ate a lot, drank to match, played some games, talked a bunch, ate some more, watched bad movies, read, relaxed, and otherwise did nothing resembling work. That said, I think I’ll keep the best details for myself. Now, where did I leave my eggnog?

When we compensate as a matter of course, as a purpose for the effort itself, that compensation in either direction becomes an excuse.

Longest Night

December 22, because it’s the longest night… and apparently also the longest day of the year? Sure, here in the northern hemisphere we’re currently experiencing our day with the fewest hours of sunlight, which at my latitude means the sun rose this morning at 8:49am and will set at 4:16pm, making for just 7 hours and 27 minutes of daylight today. But did you know that –due to fun things like orbital mechanics and how the Earth is actually physically moving through space around the sun– what we call a “day” on Earth actually varies. Our clocks might tick off exactly 24:00:00, but the universe is a little trickier. Our planet, a big ball of rocks spinning and moving around a big ball of nuclear fusion, doesn’t count time quite as accurately. Instead, it shifts a bit. This, from how I understand it, is called the “apparent solar day” which varies by as much as a minute over the course of a year: sometimes we get less than 24 hours, and sometimes more. It all averages out, but today, December 22, is (or according to the net) the longest of those apparent solar days, coming in at 24 hours & 29.9 seconds.
