From time to time, some of us have offered to send books, magazines, etc to others. I propose we set up a little thread here for such friendly acts.

This isn't word-related, but. My aunt, who lives near Salt Lake City, sent us two Olympics pins. I understand these are collectibes/ables (did we ever decide which, Jackie?) but here they would just gather dust. Would anyone like them?

Collect, fr. Lat. com + legere. Not first conjugation, therefore, collectible.

Max, as Faldage the Sheep Man noted elsewhere, we have a fun little globe that, when I removed it from one of my packing boxes (yes, I'm still in the moving process ~ will it *ever end??), made us think of you. E me a snail address and I'll send it to you.

It has you written all over it, Max. It's non-inflatable but tiny. I wouldn't have offered otherwise [counting my shekels...]

The globe is the one I mentioned elsewhere as being the one that proves that south is down. We'll send it to you so that you can destroy the evidence. It also proves some other rather embarrassing things about the southern hemisphere, but I'm too delicate to announce them here

During my recent "partial" absence (still had periodic access to the web) musk sticks and a book were promised to various folk.

I haven't forgotten - just working through a couple of weeks of lost priorities.

I've kept the PM's with the addresses etc and will get onto the matter in the next few days. First need to find out whether I can export musk sticks. I'm worried that Customs will get me either for illegal export of movable cultural heritage (aside - no joking matter - legislation that ruined one of my friend's family life) or that the US may not allow food imports through the post....

Contact me again (PM is fine) anybody who wants to add their name to the recipients' list. BTW I think I'll be doing it for love and am happy to do so. Mucking around with A$1.39 pp is not worth the bother. I'll speak up if it looks like the postage is too unwieldy - especially if you want said items quick (ie faster than sea mail).
