    if my giftee goes by the box, she's going to think she's getting a telephone headset!

    i'm one of those people who uses whatever box she has on hand that fits everything to send stuff.

    I had to beg my programme coordinator for a box because I couldn't find any on campus, and that's all he had. I'm happy the distraction worked. :angel12:

    Oops. Spoke too soon. Here's what I really got:

    A postcard100_2341.jpg

    A book called "Passing Through" which seems interesting. I'll start it today or tomorrow. 100_2340.jpg

    An ornament with the colors of the Jamaican flag 100_2339.jpg

    This picture didn't come out too well but it's a key chain that says "I Love Jamaica"
    100_2338.jpg

    Another key chain100_2337.jpg

    A rasta magnet 100_2336.jpg

    Cool earrings100_2335.jpg

    Tamarind balls!100_2334.jpg

    Last but not least, this cute doll

    And here it is one at a time:
    xmas2s.jpg Awesome Christmas socks! Santa's hat is sparkly red!!
    xmas3r.jpg For my beading!!! I'm so so excited! I've been avoiding working on it because I'm out of clasps! Now I can begin again at projects!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    xmas4.jpg Beautiful pendant for my beading. And she put a wonderful little label on it to remind me that I'm a star to her. *love*
    xmas6.jpg Thread for my beading. I'm seriously geeking out I'm so happy over here!!!
    xmas5y.jpg I love shoes and glittery stickers. They fit me and can't wait to use them.
    xmas8.jpg The colors are: cocomotion (top), copperized free (left), and old gold (right). Beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    xmas11k.jpg Nail polish in exactly the glitter I wanted! I can't wait to do my christmas snow nails with the silver glitter!!!!!!!!!!
    xmas13.jpg An absolutely gorgeous ornament in my favorite colors.
    xmas12o.jpg And of course the wine! I'm so excited. I love dessert wine. And with brandy?! I had a wine once at a Christmas once that was so old that wo-workers said it was close to brandy. It was so good. I can't wait to drink it! Wish I could have it at lunch.... But I can't be drunk at work. The Mormons here would revolt.
    xmas10t.jpg And this card that had a wonderfully sweet and touching message inside for me.

    Rou, you totally out-did yourself! I can't stop smiling. Thank you for making the start of my week so wonderful. I don't think I've been this happy in A LONG WHILE.

    I think my gift is here! My lovely mailman brought it to my office so it wouldn't sit out on my porch all day. I don't know most NCers real names but I'm not expecting a package of this size or from VA so I'm guessing it's from my Secret Curly Santa Girl!!
    I'm not opening it til tonite in the comfort of my own quiet house. Ohhh the excitement!!
