hello everyone! i just got home from Chicago and found my bundle of mail inside the door… and was thrilled to see a lumpy package. I was equally thrilled to see it was from Australia… and it had a familiar name on the return address… ah! my WISE gift had arrived! Wonderful!
So, I was exhausted (near midnight) after traveling for the past six 1/2 hours… but was so excited to open the package… and… well, let’s take a look! This is what Semele wrote recently:
Much like Ian, I went with an Australian theme. Unlike Ian, I neglected to include a Christmas card so sorry to my WISE recipient for that lapse in judgment
No worries about the Christmas card – a beautiful little box arrived with a delightful little Bilby inside (see here for what a bilby is: it’s native to Australia and it seems is near extinction because its habitat has changed so much within the last century…) luckily i now have a handcrafted ornament for my tree to forever honor the little rugrat :)
and thank you for the yummy delicious Australian chocolate – I’ll save it for an extra special moment… it’s not every day I get Australian chocolate personally imported by a wiblike friend from far away shores :)
whooo-hoo! thank you! and an early very merry Christmas!
[edit: ok, what am i doing wrong? i went to ‘add media’ and selected ‘image’ then did ‘browse’ to select picture… and then save/add to post, then when i published it there was no picture! help!!!!!]
[edit: so i logged out of Firefox browser, logged back in under Internet Explorer… let’s see if this will work]
[edit: what am i doing wrong? tried to ‘browse’ through the Flash program, then tried to do it through the Browser Uploader option… i wanna show you the Bilby! it’s adorable!!!!!!!]
[edit: so i tried ‘media’ instead, and the same error occurred… gah! one day this will be figured out0
[edit: so now i’ve switched the theme to see if it was, indeed, a design/theme issue… let’s see how this goes – nope, that doesn’t fix it either… grah!]
