Yay! It has arrived!
And since there was no-one around to share the joy of belated Crimbo with, I thought I'd open it live on the chatroom. Here is a transcript:

Spanners: OK so we have a brown envelope
Spanners: about 6" by 8"
Spanners: rather light with a leeds postmark
Spanners: Hmmm, who's in Leeds? Malley? Malcolm?
Spanners: I very excited
Spanners: I shall now peel back the sticky flaps
Spanners: I can see the spine of a book!
Spanners: dare I look further?
Spanners: slowly and with great apprehension I slide my hand inside the envelope, grasp the volume held within and withdraw it
Spanners: and it is...
Spanners: wait for it...
Spanners: The little book of farting
Spanners: classy
Spanners: Thank you Santa, now I shall always be able to categorise my emissions

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans...

I got a quite simply marvellous wooden musical percussion instrument type thing (I assume that's what it is!). Quite a relief as through the envelope it felt most peculiar!

Thank you Santa. Thank you indeed.

I find the best results came from holding the thing twixt thumb and forefingers at the very centre of the middle bit and rotating the wrist sharply in alternate directions. I did have some fun twanging the side bits too, though it was less effective overall. The most fun I believe can be had from adding your own sound effects to films at particularly tense or spooky moments!
Merry Christmas, ho ho ho!

Thank you Secret Santa for my unicycling bear on a tightrope! I think the unicycle was a clue as to who the Santa is...

Yeyyyyy!!!! Secret Santa was soooo kind to me.

I was lucky enough to get a small book that answers many of the unanswerables!! It is entitled Why or the book of Why, and it makes for wonderful toilet time reading. I feel an expanding depth an bredth to my knowledge and the ol' gray matter is receiving much nurishment.

I'm going to start a thread all about it - simply called WHY? Each day will be like an epiphany.

...I hope I keep this thread going - infact I'm not promising anything because I a very hit and miss contributer.

Thank you Secret Santa, thank you the world over!!!!!!!!

For the best band in Leeds, honest.

Alright, back from London and doing the tidy-up. Serious time now: If anyone hasn't received a present, please PM me and I'll send a message on to your Santa. So far most people seem to have received gifts, so hooray for that. anyone who hasn't, bear with us a little longer.

You will, I'm just giving it a week for last-minute presents to arrive and for anyone with issues* to PM me. Normal service resumed shortly




*issues about the Secret Santa, I can't help you with your Oedipal complexes or anything :/

Santa sent me a veritable goody bag of festive cheer: a pink sparkly bouncy ball, the teensiest deck of playing cards I've ever seen, a pink-haired troll in some kind of Zorro mask, a tube of Touchable Bubbles, and the most marvellous mini farm! The little piggies are brilliant, and rather disturbingly the rabbits are the same size as the cows, unless the cows are just Far Away. Thank you, Santa!

Hey dregan, how come you're the only person in lowercase in the list?

It's actually how I prefer to capitalise my moniker [pretentious I know, but such is life] but Spanners' clever forum auto-capitalised it for me when I was signing up

I'm sure there's some Freudian explanation like a 'depressed sense of self-importance' or 'id and ego at odds with self' or 'wanker', but I just prefer the look with a small d.

You are indeed welcome. I was going to get you some Nora Yarn, but it turns out that's a) hard to find on short notice and b) expensive...

And thank you Brighton Babe! My present and beer are happily shrinking on my mantlepiece!
