Christmas cards, anyone?

Detail of 'Yuuwaku' by Audrey Kawasaki

I've been meaning to do this for a week...I'm making up my Christmas card list, and if anyone would like a card from me, please leave a comment with your name and address (comments are screened on this entry, so I'll be the only freak who can see them). Christmas is the only holiday I really get into--I love shopping for presents--and I generally send out funny cards. Though last year, I sent out some gorgeous pop-up ones with snowflakes that I bought at...the Detroit airport. There's some seriously good shopping in that airport. And an indoor tram that makes me feel like I'm on Trantor. But I digress.

I normally resist doing anything Christmassy before Thanksgiving because I think it dilutes the fun of the season if you spread it out over 10 weeks, but last week I was driving home from work and they were apparently testing out lighting on the new pedestrian bridge over Hiawatha Avenue. I really hope that's what the final product will look like, as in the daytime it looks like a wrecked ship whose mast is tilted over. But the lights were gorgeous and blue and reminded me of my usual Christmas lights, and it flipped a switch somewhere in my head and made me wish it were winter already. I got a new phone very recently and am still trying out all the features, so...here's a picture of the bridge taken with the new phone.

And, just for the hell of it, because he was behaving nicely for once, here is Emmott.  Did I mention the camera phone does not have a flash?

Oops...I meant to reply to that post, but I must have forgotten to. :0(

It's never too late! (Well...December 26th might be too late...) :0)

Aw...thanks! But I'm not sure you'd want Emmott! LOL He's a hyperactive brat who gets bored in the middle of the night and knocks things over to wake you up and get attention. And if you irritate him, he'll follow you around and bite your calves. But he's mellowing a lot now that he's in kitty middle age.

If I am too late, feel free to use my information for nefarious purposes.

Heh heh heh...what if I donated money in your name to the Communist Party? There's always that kind of nefarious fun to be had... ;0)
