Christmas follow-up

rileyc :  Thank you for the lovely card and the good wishes.  My New Year's wish for you is that the kitties finally calm down a bit and let you (occasionally) enjoy some peace and quiet.

crazybutsound :  Guess what was in my mailbox last night?!?  Your package finally arrived.  :-)  The candles look a bit battered, but they smell wonderful, even through the wrapping.  I can just imagine how nice it will be when they're lit.  And more French music!  *beams*  I was going to bring my small CD player with me to the office today so I could listen to it while I work, but it was already raining this morning when I got up, so I decided to leave anything unnecessary at home.  I have no exciting plans tonight (New Year's Eve), so I may listen to it then.

greedy_dancer :  Remember that package I sent you in early October that never arrived?  Well, I don't know why, but the French postal service sent it back to me.  It was waiting on my doorstep when I got home yesterday.  There's something stamped across it, but it's too faint for me to read.  Question:  Are packages ever left at the door in France, or does the Post Office just leave you a delivery notice that you have to take in to collect the parcel?  If it's the latter, all I can think is that for some reason you never received the notice that a parcel was being held for you, and so after a certain period of time it was just returned to the sender.  Assuming what's inside survived intact, I'll try sending it to you again after the holiday madness is over.

Tavi :  I still don't know how to answer.  I was tossing and turning and dreaming about it last night, lol.  Hopefully he's busy doing "important historic work" and hasn't noticed the lack of response yet.  Soon though, I promise.

Finally, this picture of Kyiv *points to icon* was on the front of the Christmas card  jenni_snake sent me.  I asked her if she could turn it into an icon, and she did!  Isn't it beautiful?

    I have no words for what happened yesterday. I'm thinking of a Financial Times cartoon that showed the Oval Office as a padded cell. Would that it…

    So what do you remember from the Ancient Rome part of your world history class all those years ago? Antony and Cleopatra? Julius Caesar and Brutus?…
