Thanks very kindly and let me express similar seasonal good wishes for all of the list members.

I recieved an on-topic gift, coincidentally enough. It's a little art book by Peggy Thompson and Saeko Usukawa entitled HARD-BOILED, Great Lines from Classic Noir Films. While some of the titles they choose to quote from are just a little difficult to justify as being noirs (BODY AND SOUL? TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT? Huh?) it <is> a tasty little graphical package with well-chosen and placed stills and lobby cards to break up the the snippets of filmic deadpan dialog. It's hard <not> to like a book that blurbs itself with this line from THE BIG CARNIVAL: "I don't pray. Kneeling bags my nylons."
