"/r ~-,k'k~ May your Christmas be the best ever! One of my pet peeves (nemesis) happens to be these things that come inside magazines--some attached--some loose so they can fall out--so stiff you can hardly turn the pages and if you get it turned it won't stay open without you holding it. That little piece of stiff postcard type whacha-m-callit really bugs me--that and coat hangers. I don't know which I dislike most--both are crowd- ing each other for the top of the list. Of course coat hangers are almost indispensable and you can use the postcard things as book- marks--so it may be teaching me tolerance or patience. So I guess it's OK.
