Did you receive my letter? I've been a very good boy this year and want a fully working, 100% airworthy VC-10 :D .

I know where you can get not one, but three working, fully airworthy IL-62MKs, brand new built to order, in fact. Close enough?

Yes!!! I hope that SantaPer can fit them in his sleigh :D -even if he has to leave some poor, suffering children without presents-.

Don't know, it was a by catch. I'm no expert on starfish, but this one had an unusual pattern.

My wife walks by and she's like "ooh, what's that?"

"It's Per" I reply "The Ancient Mariner"

"He's from Norway"

She squints.

"He likes to go fishing and he is a lovely chap"

My wife looks at me

"It's a starfish"

They're called sea stars now. Seeing as they're not fish.

Fun fact. That's what we've always called them in Viking lingo. Sjøstjerner.
