@talie yes! my stepdad frequently hides things in our bags. My mom once opened her purse at work and found the house cordless phone (back when those existed). We also have a village of ceramic houses at Christmas every year, but the twist is: there's a sniper hidden on one of the roofs, and you have 10 seconds from when you walk in our house to find it.
I was about 7 when my mom started dating my now-stepdad. From then until I was ... no, still when I go home to visit ... my stepdad has insisted that there are parties in the house after I go to sleep. I would wake up in the morning and he'd tell me about all of the things that happened overnight: clowns (??) and ice cream and balloons and all these visitors. There was always a new story.

@z(oo)mm Emails are great for documenting everything, which is why I prefer them. My other issue with phone calls is that they require an answer right away - which I may not always have. If I get a phone call and don't know who is on the other end, I am wary to answer because I don't want to be put on the spot. I'd rather listen to a message and get back to them when I have a proper answer. Plus, as others have mentioned, it can be distracting - if you are working on something and have to stop to answer the phone, which may be an unrelated subject matter question.
@laserbeams Stop describing my life. CONSTANT answers, on a Blackberry, ALWAYS - and they never make sense. They only address one small part of the several points raised in the email, and even then usually have not understood the question correctly and give an answer that I'm already well aware of.
@phenylalanine Oooh, yours sounds fun though.
