I dearly want to go to Paris someday.

That panda head is creeper than all-get-out....but a good photo op!

And you have snow! The first snow is always magical. (At this point in AK, it's just gotta be good skiing, or I'm pi**ed.)

So you WILL be in Seattle!?! I was going to start doing some heavy Value Village coupon bribes on you.
Value Village shopping with Bugheart: mandatory for my visit to the States!

little busy bug!
I love those drawings but then again I always do:)

great snaps of your friend + the panda, kinda weird in a good way, it reminded me of the bunny in donnie darko!

& of course I'm drooling over paris, esp. the cheese shop, oh how we love cheese!

hugs*hugs,
ash

p.s. the pottery class I'm taking is right near your brothers house on Roanoke, so I always think of you when I drive by :)
