[Comments] (6) Sorry, Mom: Today I mailed letters from Santa to 100 or so children. It was fun! That's saying something, considering I was really just stuffing envelopes. They also got a picture to color for the coloring contest. I brought home the ones we had printed out but decided not to use, and John and I each colored one after dinner.

Speaking of dinner, I got home and it was all made for me! John made chicken with a peanut orange ginger glaze and rice and carrots. It was delicious, especially that part I didn't have to cook. We have determined we will be unable to make Tomato Fennel Soup, and Mazto Balls. Couldn't find fennel or Mazto anywhere. Mer.

I may have already mentioned this, but Linda and I have been told we are wrapping the employee gifts this year. It's been quite the ordeal, but today our errand-runner took the wrapping paper to Maintenance. She had the entire rolls cut to the width we needed, then made one of the guys hold it while she cut it into lengths on the giant paper cutter in Graphics. Brilliant. Linda and I have a quota of wrapping 20 per day to get them done before the party.

You would think I am becoming an expert wrapper, but I just wrapped something for Leonard that didn't turn out so well. All of you coming to Utah post-Christmas are getting more gifts than are at Mom's (sorry, Rach). I keep remembering things I was supposed to buy, or that have been hiding the closet.

The girl in Devil Wears Prada had to wrap all of her boss' presents, including her personal ones and not just the employee.

Everytime someone wants something wrapped at work I beg another person to do it.

John always had to do stuff like that for his boss. I think that's lame. We just have to wrap 250 little ice chests.

how cute. I want a little ice chest!

You can have mine. It's a little folding one. We already have two (although I think Leonard (or someone) has one, which is fine). This one has a radio. If any Nature's Way employees are reading, act surprised.

No fennel??? I don't know if I could ever move back to Utah County.

You couldn't! Don't! Ever! Bleh! Especially since all of *us* are getting out of here soon (go Aaron!)

I am considering visiting Good Earth. I don't know if it's at all like health food stores in CA, which have bulk raw foods and other regular yet fancy stuff. I don't think they'll have fennel, but perhaps Matzo?
