The TVM - Christmas card exchange signup!!111

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

I'd like to. Tooks, I'll message you my address when I'm on the laptop. The Tapatalk app isn't letting me. *pout*

I'm in! Although I can only send e-cards if that's all right. I think you already have my snail mail address.

it's this daylight savings-time we've got over here - do they have that in Australia? It completely knocks me askew.


Yes, we have DLS in Oz. WE went onto summer time last month. Feels like you are jet lagged for a week or so but then it evens out. Though I wish the birds would shut up at 5am!! Might need to fell beat to eat them soon.

I am fine with e-cards. :)

Going to see Fantastic Beast with friends this saturday. Can't wait!

God, we just had a major snowfall start up - I nearly got trapped in it, scarily! Not liking this, not at all. It's dangerous out tonight.

I wish we got snow...in winter of course. But Sydney is too far north and coastal for that. :(

Too bad we couldn't send the precipitation to California. :(
They need it more than we do.

My area got over 8 inches of snow. Then freezing rain. The branches on the tree in the front yard are drooping waaaay down. Hope they don't break. :P


On the bright side, at least I didn't have to be driving in the stuff. The traffic was a nightmare around here in the afternoon. :Q

Yeah, out here, my whole town was in a crisis. The town snow plows were apparently not working, which meant that there were lines of cars stuck on all the roads throughout the night in the freezing cold. A truck slid on a really high hill we have around here and got stuck across the road, blocking up even more traffic - on a hill, at night, in the snow. Thank Eru I was not up there. A really brave lady went out and was rescuing people, including a guy who had gotten lost miles from here and was trying to find his way back. Then ambulances were trying to get out. It was a night when all you could hear was police-sirens everywhere.

I'm in for the card exchange and e-cards are great for me. Tooks I think you have my sailmail and email both. The snailmail should start with 3340.

Calma asked me to tell you all she is in hospital. Went over Wednesday to take her but she was feeling so bad had to call 911.
She is doing ok now. Kidney troubles and they are doing all they can to help her out. Might be home as early as tomorrow.
She asked me to say hi to you all. Saw her today and she looks alot better and is complaining about the hospital food. :)

I did not get any email giving me updates or additions to the Christmas card exchange.

So, I'm just gonna send cards to the same people at the same addresses I used last year.

Except for the two that were returned as not having a good address. But if you got one from me last year you'll get one from me this year.

WENCHIE!!!!!!!

We needs to get stronger duct tape, seriously.

I too enjoyed Crimes of Grindewald, though still not liking Depp as Grindewald. Jude Law as young Dumbledore was fantastic. Looking forward to their showdown...even though I know who wins.

Hello notlistening! Glad to know you liked the movie! Over here, the box office hasn't been fantastic (no pun intended). But worldwide, it's doing great, which is great! Jude Law was awesome.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate! - it's gonna be bitterly cold over here, which is unfortunate: a good day to curl up with a book by the fireside, I guess.

I also only have Tookish's address, so, um…

Well, I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving. I didn't, as I had to work. Walmart has canceled Thanksgiving and made it Black Thursday. I barely survived the madness.

Gosh, Black Friday is madness. I don't bother trying to go out in the middle of the night when it's freezing, just to run around in a Target or a Walmart grabbing TV-sets or waffle irons from other customers, and possibly get stampeded to death in the mob. It's just too much. :lol:

Any fresh news about Calma? Hope she's doing much better and has made it home by now.

Me too! I've been worried sick about her :(
Not to mention physically sick these past few days - though feeling much better today. But the weather is just gloom and rain around here, with heavy dark clouds and no sunlight. And everywhere I go, there are so many crowds it's insane. Huge traffic on the road, plus bad drivers.
