3 more shopping days

Finished xmas shopping yesterday, woohoo! Malls are packed, swarming with frantic shoppers and wandering carollers. I kinda miss carolling...a bunch of our friends used to get together for an annual pre-Christmas carol sing at one of our homes, but it's too difficult to schedule that sort of thing now. I still have a pile of carol sheets containing lyrics to every Christmas carol I could lay my hands on. :-) Do any of you do the carolling thing?


HEY, there's a wee bit of snow outside! (yes, I actually looked outside my office window) Unfortunately it tends to melt quickly in downtown Toronto...too much asphalt and steel to make snow feel too welcome.


Paul: thanks for supporting me on the red balloon idea. :-) Andrea: Do you and Tom have your own skates, or do you rent? I bet you were a lot more graceful than I'd be. Annie: maybe I should come up with own kiai-equivalent I can bellow out on suitable occasions! Taunya: what's Bok Fu?
