|01:35 pm - I'm off on vacation.... [plus: the story of the Christmas cards]|
Hey, all! I'm going to be visiting my family for the next week, and will probably not have access to LJ during that time. Email, yes, so if you need/want to get in touch with me, email and I should be able to respond at least briefly.
Hope everyone has a great week! Go see Narnia!
This is a slightly odd story.
My roommate was cleaning house and put some of my things back in my bedroom, namely: a plastic bag full of my almost-finished Ravenclaw scarf and another bag full of...Christmas cards.
I looked at the cards, and they were definitely not mine. Most of them were unused, and there was a pen in the bag, as if someone had packed them up to take somewhere and fill out. I asked my roommate, but they weren't hers; and she called her friend Brian who'd come over this week, but they weren't his. Even stranger, the couple of cards that were written in were signed with a non-English symbol of some kind.
Finally, my roommate said that she had really though they must be mine, since they were right next to my knitting bag...and a light went on in my head. While standing in line for Goblet of Fire, I'd been right behind a young Arab guy who was filling out cards. He left the bag to mark his place in line when he left to go get coffee or somesuch, and I guess my friends picked it up along with the rest of our stuff when the line started to move!
We stole his Christmas cards. :-P I feel like the Grinch.
Current Mood: tired
Are any of them addressed?
You might mail the addressed cards with an enclosure saying what happened. The story will eventually get back to the orginal card-sender, who will at least know it was an accident.
We thought of that, but all the envelopes are blank. :-P And the cards he signed, he either signed with this squiggly little symbol, or with the first name "Mishel" (or something like that, can't recall the exact spelling right now).
Poor guy - guess there's no chance of getting them back to him, huh?
I'm seeing Narnia tonight!

Call the theater and ask if anyone has contacted them looking for lost Christmas cards. Or return them to the theater and explain what happened. I know it's been several weeks, but you never know. Like turning them in to a lost-and-found. Someone at the theater might know something. It's a long shot, but it might work.
