    Just came to mind a thread we had a year ago here...

    Well, I didn't get that much - a book about Václav Havel, a book from Kafka, a cell phone (from the company)... I got more things for Hannuka - jeans, shoes, a cap, a new MP3 player, books... :confused:

    What did you get?

    Ah. I'm not used to the King's English. As a dullard American, all I could think of was an old fashioned miners lamp with a carbide flame. :lol:

    Bit of backcountry off-piste would be nice but there isn't really enough snow, so likely it will just be the groomed runs and the terrain park.
