Thanks to a wonderful cash donation to the Holiday Hooligans from Ivan O. of South Jordan, Utah, the following *victims* were chosen today:
  • Colin Elliott of Midlothian, Virginia received a copy of "Starship Troopers" by Robert Heinlen.
  • Christina Nutter of Omaha, Nebraska wished for and received the "Geatest Irish Hits" CD. Hmmm...there seems to be an Irish theme running in the selections tonight...the CD and two Colins...
  • Colin Gallagher of Brookline, Mass requested and received the LEGO Star Wars Landspeeder. I know Star Wars. I know LEGO. I didn't know the two flavors could mesh into one.

Snow is falling here in the Twin Cities as it has been quite frequently this season. Each of the recent snows have had their own personality...fluffy wet snow, Wednesday's dry ultra shiny (and slippery!) snow and tonight's somewhat pellet-y snow. It actually looks like it's ventured into the fluffy variety now, but when I was driving in it earlier tonight it was definitely pellets. I'm fond of the first two varieties. Not wild 'bout the pellets though. The pellets are like quick frozen droplets...they're not *baked* long enough to have the intricacy of gorgeous flakes. Rumor, ok, the *forecast* is calling for blizzard conditions near to where I live. Wheeeee! It's been a while since I've experienced that. If ya don't *need* to be somewhere it's a great day to stay home, stoke the fire and bake some cookies. :-) Stay warm and have a wonderful weekend!
