Christmas cards!

I am now feeling slightly more Christmassy. Hooray!

I'm very behind with the sending out of cards, but I will definitely do some. I really like paper cards. I like the acknowledgement that the people I've met on the internet are as real as the people I've met in my walking-around life. I'm not sure that the environmental cost is all that great - I keep cards for years, and eventually recycle them. But I recognise that some people feel differently, which is why there's an option for e-cards.

I don't care about reciprocity - obviously, I like getting cards at least as much as I enjoy sending them. But I know about lack of spoons, and if getting a card from me would cheer you up, you don't have to feel guilty about not sending me one.

No thank you.

I've made comments on this entry screened, so feel free to copy & paste your address in there, or link to a post containing it. Please also tell me the names of any partners, housemates, children or pets who should be mentioned on the card.

My address is here, and I expect you know that I live with a fuzzy ewok called Richard.
