Diziet was bold enough to comment:
received the most expertly wrapped present i've ever seen through the post today. i'm actually worried about opening it because it'll ruin its shiny perfection!

big thanks to my secret santa.





Wow, that's efficient. I purchased mine yesterday and plan to send it tomorrow.

Actually, I'd like to apologise in advance in case mine doesn't get there in time. I was looking on the internet for ideas, and found the perfect thing available by mail order, so ordered it there and then. The estimate of when they'd post it etc suggested it will definitely get there in time, but I'm afraid I have no control over it.

Although, I suppose, this apology was completely pointless since nobody knows who it's aimed at...

Excuse me for mentioning it, but can I interest you in a panoramic print of York - http://www.panoramicyork.co.uk ? No? Oh well - just thought I'd ask.

Mine is being shipped tomorrow. Apologies if it arrives late!

Edit: It was indeed shipped yesterday, and I just realised I signed the card. Oh well, such it is!

Edit edit: temporal confusings! Tomorrow and yesterday in this post are the same day, the 21st. I have not invented a time machine

Yesterday I received an intriguingly small wrapped package. I have no theories about what it might be, or whom it might be from, other than it's a similar size and shape to the Philosopher's Stone.

Excuse me for mentioning it, but can I interest you in a panoramic print of York - http://www.panoramicyork.co.uk ? No? Oh well - just thought I'd ask.

My secret santa present arrived today, hoorah! My mother cast it a very bemused look! Thank you very much to my anonymous benefactor - how exciting it looks in its lovely brown envelope! I am having to employ a variety of measures to prevent myself from endlessly rattling it/patting it/trying to see if I can bend it/sniffing it/etc. - ah! And the postmark is quite illegible so I can't tell from whence it came ... hmmm!

How lovely to think of all the parcels whizzing merrily up and down the land, being delivered by weary/non-weary postmen, some with beards, some with no beard, all of whom are completely oblivious to the fact that they are aiding and abetting the Daddy Dot Org Secret Santa 2005!

Mine arrived! Alas it was too huge to fit through the tiny letterbox that the good Lord saw fit to equip me with, and I shall have to effect its recovery in the days after Christmas, as I have no time between then and now. I quiver at the thought of its poor emparceled shape languishing over Christmas in a storage booth of the post office. I can only hope that it has good company with the other mystery gifts awaiting collection.
It did mean that a postperson had to fill out out a form addressed to Swoop Tddo, which must have confused them slightly

I've got to admit I cheated and opened mine before I left on Christmas Eve. BUT, it turns out that was a good thing, since I got a grow your own present and a grow your own beer, and they require 72 hours to grow, so they should be prefect for me to enjoy when I get home tomorrow

Thank you Santa!

Well I received a rather snazzy 'Belly Dancing Kit'. Kelly was dying to see me wiggle some, but she's going to have to wait until I get some practice in first

Thank you Secret Santa! Tingtingting Dinnertime!

YAY! I love my calendar!
It features dogs, made of food! Food, in the shape of dogs!
Dogs and food, food and dogs!
yay me!
the dog made out of broccoli is particularly masterful.
And it is most useful too, as i did not have a calendar for 2006, and now I do!
Thank you Mr, Mrs, or Ms Secret Santa

'Yes, Mildred,' Miss Cackle continued, 'I shall be forced to expel you if this reckless behaviour continues. Now go to your room for the rest of the day and ponder upon all I have told you.'

Ah how lovely it all is! I received some very lovely chocolate items including a rather menacing chocolate mouse - will I eat him or will he eat me?

Well done for organising all this christmassy loveliness Dregan - oh how we all frolic with our new gifts! I have accidentally frolicked all the way back to work however - a most disappointing and tiresome outcome!

Oh yes and Mildred, I am very annoyed that you are at home with Phoebe cat (not to be 'trusted' according to mother a.k.a 'the Madness') and Bean cat ('has been' acording to father a.k.a 'the gnome')......

Please do update me on the goings on of the parents - has the gnome been sending Uma Thurman any more xmas cards and does he still think that the Virgin Mary has come to teach at his school? ahh xmas...

Mildred and I contemplated starting a thread based around the insane comments made by our mad family over the xmas period but found we could not stop laughing long enough to do so.....a great shame

Loo Rahhh was bold enough to comment:
Please do update me on the goings on of the parents



(Just a quick update then, Loo Rahhh: so far, Father has been staring out of the conservatory window saying rather petulantly 'I want to see the Squirrel and the Jay' [there were only chaffinches and blue tits in evidence at the time], and he has also been embarking on SuDoku with hilarious effects. Mother has just driven the 'little car' to the 'little shop', in imitation of Noddy it would seem)

yay for dregan for facilitating secret santa-age!

My present was waiting for me when I got to my parent's, who looked bemused but had for some reason assumed that Gertrude could only be me. It turned out to be a rather splendid manicure set, and a diary with pictures of Ireland, so I now have beautiful (well, short) nails, and something to keep me going until I get to Ireland to see the nuns in September. Thank you Secret Santa!

After a Christmas spent in a far away land (well, Gloucestershire) I made my way to the postal holding depot. After an awkward few moments explaining to the postal man that while my name wasn't actually Swoop Tddo, it realy was my parcel, I managed to convince him although he looked a bit dubious
And inside was a robot!
A Lego robot!
It stands up, waves its spear around and shoots flying disks at enemies and others whom I take a dislike to. I've never felt so secure in my home! Now I have my android warrior by my side my evil plans can at last come to fruition. Bwahahaha!

"Quit your jibber-jabber."

"I pity the fool."

"Don't make me mad. rrrrrrrrrr"

- just a few of the Mr T sayings that emanate from my Secret Santa present at the touch of a button. Thank you Santa!

Excuse me for mentioning it, but can I interest you in a panoramic print of York - http://www.panoramicyork.co.uk ? No? Oh well - just thought I'd ask.
