How to Add VCards to Thunderbird

At work, we have this really nice staff directory. However, it only exports a person's entry in VCard format. But Thunderbird doesn't have a way to import a VCard. Or does it? To add a VCard to a Thunderbird Address Book do the following.
  1. Save the VCard to a file.
  2. Attach the VCard file to an email message and send it to yourself.
  3. When you receive the message, the VCard will be attached along with a small icon that represents a person.
  4. Click on the icon, and Thunderbird will provide a popup that adds the VCard to your address book.
That's it. Saves a bunch of typing.

Thanks to MacWorld hints for the idea.
