Ooh, this is such a fun idea! I’ll go for the Nabokov set…he’s one of my favorite authors. Plus, I’m currently living in the apartment complex he used to live in!

Wow! That’s really exciting. I actually lived in the house next door to a house he had lived in and I used to peer into the windows wistfully—but I was too late. He had moved out a decade previously.

Doulton, you’re the best for doing this!

Doulton said

Thank you so much, Shanti. I’m hoping to get together some really nice packages and even to let go (sobbingly) of some of my new best friend, Bogart.

gasp bogart, you’re sharing bogart! faints

I agree Doulton, this was a very nice thing to do. I’m going to sit this out since I got so many nice lagniappes from you already with the adventure in French tea shipment but did want to say I’ve appreciated watching the thread grow. :-)

@ Morgana: Lagniappe? You ever live in Louisiana, or is that more of a widespread term than I’ve realized? :)

I think it’s a pretty common word. I first heard it from my mom, she was from the South but not Louisiana.

I’ll probably post the winners in just about 24 hours from now. I’m having fun starting to put together these packages. There’s a lot of real, authentically good tea—this is not just the dregs of the disliked! So you can go ahead and sign up if you have not already until April 23rd, 12 noon, Eastern Daylight Time.
