Before we get any further into the new year, I want to do a belated "Thank You!" shout out to the friends who remembered me during the holidays with cards and/or gifts. So, to Alexa, Andi, Anne, Cynthia, Els, Guillemette, Jen and Laura, Randie, Robin, and (last but certainly not least) Tavi, many many many thanks for helping to make Christmas special. I have a DVD to watch, Scottish tablet to eat, books to read (will I be sucked into the George R. R. Martin fandom after reading A Game of Thrones, courtesy of Tavi?), some Father Christmas ornaments for next year's tree, and a sparkly peacock brooch. Now, for 100 points (or maybe a v-gift), who can tell me the name of the peacock? Hint: It begins with a "D" and ends with an "e"....

Glad you liked the ornaments. :-) Hope you got my e-mail - I got your package - finally! (Thanks, Canada Post...)

Hahaha, Dominique the peacock? How apropos...

Hmmm. Haven't seen an email yet, and anything that went to gmail should have been forwarded to work....

I should have stipulated that you and Guillemette weren't allowed to play, as it would be a no-brainer for you. Tavi, of course, already knew.

Love my little Canadian towel, btw. :-)

Glad you like the towel! Sorry about the spoiler! And I resent the e-mail, jic.

I think my cards have been turned into Mardi Gras cards. Just an fyi.

That works for me. :-)

I should find a nice Mardi Gras icon....

You're welcome, sweetie. I got your card, too. Thank you so much for that.

I just finished the second book in the Game of Thrones series. Deeply, deeply addicting, I must warn you.

Deeply, deeply addicting, I must warn you.

That's what I've heard.

Also deeply, deeply depressing. Be warned- as far as I can tell, NO ONE gets a happy ending.

I posted a thanks earlier but you may have missed it--so thanks for the New Year card-sounds like the rest of your trip was a success-lovely meeting you -

It was such a success that I'll be back in March for five days. My sister's coming over as well this time; she wanted to before, but work stuff interfered. I doubt we'll make it out of London, but if Tavi and I do tennis again next autumn, maybe you and I can plan another get-together. :-)
