Yes, it's "annoy your friends by sending them holiday cards that probably won't arrive until Chinese New Year" time again. By now I think most of you know the drill: all comments are screened, if you've shifted house since the last time you got a card from me then let me know where you moved to, etc. etc. etc.

As I'm still seriously caught up with this nanowrimo lark (latest word-count: a handful fewer than 31,000 words in the last 16 days) I might not do anything until the overseas mails close (they close on Monday 23rd this year and I don't even have the stamps yet - the post office are promising a $3 discount on booklets of 10 overseas mail stamps, which means they're the same price as the undiscounted price last year...) but still leave an address just in case. I have last year's addresses in my address book, but don't know where anyone's shifted to in the last year.

Currently I've got no plot, no ideas and the results are not pretty. I really ought to forget about quantity and start trying to write something decent.

Will have family visiting your town next month (not me, unfortunately: just too busy to take a week off work).

And what part of "still leave an address just in case" was unclear?

Yup, I've checked and the address is right. Might be rather late this year so possibly expect a card some time around Chinese New Year next February or March or whenever.

I never ask for cards, but if you want to send one go for it. Address hasn't changed since last year (in fact the only thing in my address that's changed all the time I've been on line is my postcode: it's now 9840).

I'll happily distribute cards around ABML, I just need to actually find out how to get back onto usenet (my current provider doesn't offer news groups at all). If there's anyone on The List who was actually there back when I was posting and wasn't on The List when I was sending cards you could give them my address if you like.
