U Got a Mail!!

These are some of the excerpts from a letter..
-- Surround yourself with loyal friends. They'll protect and calm you and join in on some of the fun, and appreciate the history.
-- If you're traveling with your parents over Halloween, don't let it stop you from doing what you would normally do. Dress up in some imaginative, elaborate costume (if you are like us a pack of Juicy Fruit and a Vampiress) and trick-or-treat down the plane aisle.
-- And, a note on puppies--our sweet puppy Spot was nursed on the lawn . And then of course, there's Barney, who most recently bit a reporter. Cherish your animals because sometimes you'll need the quiet comfort that only animals can provide.-- Slide down the banister of the solarium, go to T-ball games, have swimming parties, and play Sardines on the lawn. Have fun and enjoy your childhood in such a magical place to live and play.
-- When your dad throws out the first pitch for the Yankees, go to the game.
-- In fact, go to anything and everything you possibly can: State Dinners, Christmas parties museum openings, arrival ceremonies, and walks around the monuments. Just go. Four years goes by so fast, so absorb it all, enjoy it all!

The name was chosen by Rajiv Rao, executive creative director, South Asia, Ogilvy India who explained that he chose the name to favour something that was "fun, memorable and catchy, and not a clever one that’s difficult to pronounce".
They were split in two parts - the body and the head. The body was made using a special material stuffed with foam in some places (notably around the stomach) while the head was created using using a harder material called Perspex.what??

X Games

X is the wife of the the king of Ithaca, Odysseus , and daughter of Icarius and his wife Periboea. She only has one son by Odysseus, Telemachus, who was born just before Odysseus was called to fight in the Trojan War. She waits twenty years for the final return of her husband.On Odysseus's return, disguised as an old beggar, he finds that X has remained faithful. She has devised tricks to delay her suitors, one of which is to pretend to be weaving a burial shroud for Odysseus's elderly father Laertes and claiming that she will choose a suitor when she has finished. Every night for three years, she undoes part of the shroud, until some unfaithful maidens discover her chicanery and reveal it to the suitors.

Because of her efforts to put off remarriage, X is often seen as a symbol of connubial fidelity.

Identify X!!

Shrey,Varun and Susa got it right.
