Last night i got my package from my secret santa. THANKS Caroline. She sent me: a cool string bookmark, a notebook and notepad (did you know i write stuff constantly?), the book Plenty and a cookbook called Red Chile Bible. Yum! spicy stuff is great and i've seen at least a dozen things i want to try just flipping through it. You are awesome!
I've sent out my package to my recipient as well. Hope you like it.
As I'm mentioning the Christmas Swap exchange, I must mention Dewey's passing and that my heart goes out to her family. You get to know people through this great invention, the internet, sharing in their lives and interests even though you never meet in person. Dewey was a great community builder, forging connections between people through Weekly Geeks, the Read-a-thon, and her blog. Others have written wonderful tributes to her and the whole book blog community is going to really miss her.
Lastly, Xerox is sending postcards to the troops stationed overseas. It's free! Click on over and send a word of thanks to a soldier.
