Two of the most perfect gifts possible, from Mufidah: a gorillapod, which I've wanted, now, for more than two years, and the Pevear/Volokhonsky translation of Chekhov's stories, the very edition which my dear Krishnan Venkatesh has been reading with his students this semester at St. John's College, Santa Fe. Yeah!
In truth, the Ed Boxall card would, itself, have been more than enough. The perfect card to accompany the perfect gifts.
