I repeat, let's move on now.


Will I get in trouble for not moving on if I just add that I like this? It really is nice to have these two things separate and, I think, much easier to use this way. Thanks and thanks for deciding to pin the topic.

I don't think you will get in trouble for agreeing with the mod. Okay, time for me to move on.

OK, I'm pretty behind, having tried to catch up at work and home after the trip to Korea. (BTW, I was a dufus and didn't back up my PMs before they got wiped, so apologies if I missed something - I do have everyone's address written in my Little Black Book, though).

I've gotten a BUNCH of lovely postcards, including ones from FredRydr, inkypete, tr3n1ty, Suggie, pmsalty, and orangesam. I think I owe EVERYONE a postcard, so I'll be sending ones out to all the ones on my list (admittedly, not many). I also owe a card to slqqq.

Reprieve - I am PMing you right now. Tr3n1ty - I am home now.

:::deep breath:::

OK, back to work.

:bonk:

Edit: Forgot to say - also got one from jazztonight. :D

Sent out some reply PCs today with the holiday cards. Until about Dec 17th, I will try to use Christmas themed cards. After that I think I have a few New Years cards and I'll try to send those out. I also experimented with a flexible wax seal on the corner of the PCs (stealing MikeW's idea I think) since I was wax sealing the holiday cards for fun.

I feel it's wrong tpo report on letters, though.
The voice of this guitar of mine, at the awakening of the morning, wants to sing its joy;
I sing to your volcanoes, to your meadows and flowers, that are like mementos of the greatest of my loves;
If I am to die away from you, may they say I am sleeping, and bring me back home.

Just a few lines to say, that work at the moment is making it tricky for me to find time to scribble PCs, so I might have to drop out of swapping until 2010!

Hope to see y'all next year FPN people ^^

It almost sounds like your mail is getting sent by surface/ship rather than air.
