In case you missed it. The cats came with us for Christmas! They're getting along with Mika and Gonta. Uh, mostly.
I'm working on a new project, so I've been reading a lot of science fiction short stories recently and got particularly interested in Arthur C. Clarke. His name was always on my radar, but I seem to have an on again off again relationship with sci-fi, so sometimes it takes me a little while. Anyway, here are some short stories you can read online:
Krampus is a creature with roots in Germanic folklore, and is essentially the bad cop to St. Nicholas's good cop. St. Nicholas hands gifts out to the good kids, and Krampus warns and punishes bad kids - and if a kid is particularly naughty, he'll throw him or her into his sack and carry them off to his lair to eat. Krampus has appeared on cards in the Alpine regions of Europe since the 1800s - in older depictions he is more fearsome and scary, while in newer versions he is generally cuter. You can read more about Krampus at Wikipedia.
