To greedy_dancer for the surprise package that I found on my doorstep when I got home from work last night.  I'd been meaning to ask you what Tim-Tams are, and now I don't have to, lol.  (For those who don't know, Tim-Tams are wonderful chocolate cookie wafers with a mousse-like filling, the whole thing surrounded by a chocolate coating.)  I'm going to have to see if they're imported here; otherwise, if I get addicted, what am I going to do when you go home to France?  *G*

To castalie for hosting a very interesting discussion in her lj which let me see just how much French I somehow seem to have picked up quite without trying.  Maybe the subject matter and the vocabulary means my "reading knowledge of French" will be a little different from what graduate schools had in mind all those years ago when I was toying with the idea of a History Ph.D., but this is what works for me now.  ;-)  Thanks also for pointing the way to 30_baisers, which hopefully will give me lots of good reading practice.  :-)</span>

You're quite welcome *g* I'm always pleased to hear someone had fun on my LJ [/good hostess]

Hey, if my sister, who lives locally, always gets her cards to me late, you can certainly be forgiven (especially when I wasn't looking for a card from you). :-)

i'm planning to fill my suitcase entirely with TimTams when i go back to France. who needs clothes? lol

What's the right way to eat them? (I had two this morning with a cup of coffee for my breakfast. Does that count?)

didn't you get the card?? i put all instructions on it ...

nah, i suppose you didn't get the card (weird!) because if you had eaten them the right way ... you'd know it. lol

No, there was no card in the package, and nothing else has come ... :-(

And thanks to you too, for the card and clippings. I enjoyed their definitions of 'chav" greatly, and I really wasn't making it up when I told you about Goldie Lookin' Chain.

Karen, can you mail me your postal addy? I'm having a wee bit of trouble with reading it on the envelope.

Sending you an e-mail.

Got it! Because I'm horribly disorganised and basically crap, you shan't have your surprise tomorrow as intended, but there is something on the way to you, so keep an eye out.

Have a wonderful day and a marvellous year.

This has been one of those "if my 22nd-floor office window could be opened I'd probably jump" kind of days, so the news that I have anything to look forward to is more welcome than you can imagine. I'll let you know when the mysterious something arrives.

Thanks for thinking of me!

Happy birthday, love! *smootches* I hope you have a wonderful time!
