Yay, I do feel loved today 🙂
First, at school I got presents from two of my students. One gave me this lovely pair of Turkish hand-knit bed socks, in black with purple and yellow dots (inside joke with them), and the other one gave me Crash Bandicoot, a PS2 game. I had posted as a nick on MSN that I was in search of second hand games since I’m giving Bart a console as a present. She managed to made me say which ones I like, and I never gave it another thought. 🙂
When I came home, I picked up the mail, and there were very sweet Xmas cards from ambyguity and coyotegoth, which made me both very mellow. I love you both, and I really can’t wait to give you both a big hug (or knuffel, for that matter) for real. Then this friend of mine, Vallery, made the nicest card you can imagine. She’s a very beautiful girl, and also her boyfriend is one of the more handsome men around. They’re both dressed in white, sitting together, holding their cat, and with it goes the Latin sentence: “Vive virtute duce comite fortuna” by Cicero. It means: “Live with courage as your guide, and fortune as your companion”. Really really nice.
Me happy. Oh, and yes, the end of my correction work last night might have something to do with that too.
