So today I got not one but two late Christmas presents, both from England. Both by Royal Mail. One, a game, was mailed on December 11. The other, chocolates, was mailed December 14. Both clearly marked Air Mail. Both took two months. Did they disappear into a time warp? Were they stolen by aliens (along with all those missing socks)? Put in a secure room and watched for suspicious activity? No idea. Hey, who cares: I have presents!

I hope you get some unexpected gifts today.
