Feeling the Love

When I checked the mail today I was amazed by the generosity of my knitting friends. I had not one, but three Valentine packages! These people who hardly know me - most who haven't met me - are sending me little presents in the mail and brightening my day!



This one, from the blogless Zuma, came in a cute little box covered with star stickers!



This one, from Knittyboarder blu roux, came all the way from Canada and included treats for the kitties as well as for me. :D

And last, but certainly not least, a little package from my Knittyboard SP, rockstariel!





A STARBAR! How perfect! I've never heard of these, but I will savor it on Valentine's Day and let you all know how it is. Peanuts and caramel, sounds promising.

And a little random story, just cuz... You may have noticed the card from rockstariel has people reading Plato in Philosophy 1o1.

When I was in high school I attended classes at a local community college and took Philosophy 101, which I really enjoyed. Each day I would take the bus from my high school to the college, and there was a guy who would always be on the same bus, a student from a different school taking the bus to community college. This guy is now my very best friend Brian (he's the guy in the hat in that entry). When we were talking about how we met he mentioned that he remembers his first impression of me was that I must be really smart because I was reading Plato on the bus. :)

Wonderful package and SP treats!

When I was a philosophy major in college, I was working on Plato: the Musical. Thank goodness it never got finished!
"Xanthippe, follow me out of the cave/
and into the sun!"

Yes, it was that bad.

Wow, three cases of VD at the same time! I'm sure they make a cream for that... ;)

I think I actually squealed when I saw the STARBAR. The checker thought I was mad!

Well now lookit that, my psychic powers must have been channeling on the Philosophy card. *runs off to play to lottery*

P.S. I know you're not a big fan of red, but that was the only color the clubby goth star came in. ;)

Yay! The package arrived in time!
I'm glad that someone more knowledgeable in the ways of socks made sure that you got some nice yarn. ^-^
I hope that the Greenies are appreciated. Java deserves a Valentine's gift too. ;-)
