We have a package from Zen! It's a lovely package, including cards (mine has a lovely woodcut of a hedgehog who appears to be facing down a scorpion - or maybe it's an earwig) and candy and her incredibly cute little drawings (I got a pirate monkey!) and introspectiveness; which I cherish most of all.

I have received The MOST Beautifulest Chinese New Year Card EVER from [livejournal.com profile] bravecows!  And so has [livejournal.com profile] eor.  (Yes, we can both have THE most beautiful card, because our cards actually occupy the same space. :))  And I have a beautiful little red silk (I guess?  It feels like silk to me.) drawstring purse that has a shoulder-carry string which cleverly tucks inside it - just in time, too, because I'm killing my sequined elephant purse - and [livejournal.com profile] eor got a little scary face necklace which is very manly.  *nods*  (Although [livejournal.com profile] bravecows suggested that if he didn't want to wear it he could hang it up and tell it stories.)  Personally I think it will look great on [livejournal.com profile] eor. ;) 

I had wondered why fish were associated with CNY - apparently the word for 'fish' sounds similar to the word for 'extra' (extra in the sense of 'more than just enough').  I love puns. :)  I wonder if that's where Pratchett got the idea for the Borogravian phrase about the world being a great big fish?  Although he could just as well have drawn it from the world being likened to an oyster.  A language always has to have some concepts that just don't really translate.
