I'm Dave-El and as this particular post of I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You goes live at 5 AM on Sunday (United States, Eastern Time), I will likely still be asleep. But will that be after a full night of slumber to be awakened in an hour (maybe two) by my excited daughter Randie as she gathers my wife Andrea and I around the Christmas trees to open presents in the first glint of the rising sun of Christmas morning?
Or will it be after Andrea and I collapsed backed into bed at around 2:00 AM because Randie is of the opinion that anything from 12:01 AM is technically Christmas morning, you know?
Given how things have gone for the last few years, it will probably be the latter. Andrea grouses about it but I have to say, it kind of works out for me. Instead of being rousted out of bed early in the morning on Christmas Day, I get to sleep in.
Think of it as a bit of time travel done on the cheap. I'm getting my midnight sleep at 2 AM with a 10 AM wake up call instead of a 6 AM wake up call by taking care of the 6 AM gift opening at 12:15 AM.
It is appropriate to bring time travel into today's post. In addition to being Christmas Day, today is also Sunday which is typically Doctor Who day around these internet parts.
Below is a photo from the 2014 Christmas special when the 12th Doctor met Santa Claus.
