Season’s Greetings!

Well, it’s just turned Christmas Day, so I had better let Helen get some sleep!  I have been talking with some really good friends today .. a cool musician who thinks deeply and has interesting contacts and a wonderful shock of blond hair (I’ll check on whether he is willing to be named!) .. René, who teaches me the nuances of the French language (what’s the difference between en fait, et au fait?  well *I* know!!) .. Scottius Polke, an incredibly imaginative artist who has sent me a really fun card … my Italian friends at Grillo in Testa … MilesDavis, whose English is improving daily (just ask him to say ‘hang on  a minute’, and wait to be dead impressed!!) …. Marisolde, who always encourages me to have fun and enjoy the whole sartorial side of this life … Gizmo and Carol who patiently sort out all my techie problems and queries, and gently tell me when it is time to go to pack presents and go to bed .. and just past midnight, I made friends with a new Italian artist who is keen to share with me how she has learnt English entirely through Second Life.  And all this has been done during the time when Helen was meant to be tidying her house ….poor thing .. must be terrible not to have a neat little inventory where you can shove everything when you have visitors!  Anyway, feel free to drop in any time and admire my greetings cards and listen to my radio which I have now tuned to an Italian station.  And do try out the scrambler even if you don’t know any Italian!  You could get the top score and win … an email from me saying congratulations!
