What, we're only 87? Reminds me of that Dilbert cartoon where employees came ninth after carbon paper.

Love those shoes.

Hey, I saved the best for second last.

Glad you love the shoes. Looks like it's going to be while before I can wear them anywhere.

Maybe you can wear them to my Toronto book launch. (No date yet; sometime in May?)

What is Bailey's Caramel? I must know.

And Tricia, give lots of advance notice, so that maybe I can come too!

p.s. This is a nice tradition, Mel.

Anne, it's Bailey's Irish Cream but with a touch of caramel flavouring. You should be able to find it wherever you'd find Bailey's.

There's a mint version as well, but the caramel is fantastic.

And thanks. :-)

I love lists too. With yours, I particularly like following the chain of associations.
