This feels weird to feel but I am actually looking forward to a Ben Affleck film since I read this Wired article on the origins of the plot. Basically, during the Iran Hostage Crisis, six embassy workers managed to escape and hide out at the Canadian Embassy for a couple of months until the CIA orchestrated an escape plan involving a fake science fiction film to get them out. Naturally the CIA's involvement was kept secret so Canada has been taking the credit for the last thirty years (the wikipedia entry on the subject is entitled Canadian Caper). But Ben Affleck's film looks like it's going to redirect the spotlight back to the Americans involved, specifically the CIA and the Hollywood film industry (natch).

Here is a tutorial on how to get around Release 88.

I've only read a handful of this year's yuletide fics so I feel hopelessly behind, but I hope you had a lovely northern hemisphere Christmas. :)

I had a great Christmas but as my friend's tiny kitchen was really hot and stuffy, it wasn't too different from what I've experienced in Australia!

Though we did chill the wine by putting it on the window sill. That was new.

Hope your Christmas was wonderful!
