And received! My pal, Helga, seems to like them, too. I loved the Monkey pattern and will make a pair for myself someday. The person sending to me is out of the country (so mysterious!), so I won't look for my package until the end of the month. I'm patient. And excited.
Neal and I get hooked on shows via dvd. This spring we went through all of the Sopranos, and last night we saw the final episode (a friend had a bootlegged copy of the final season). No spoilers here, never fear. I had read so much, though, about how disappointing the ending was, and I wonder, did anyone else actually like it? I thought it was perfect and provoking, and Neal agreed with me. Anyone else?
