I'm pretty sure the gifts were from you Michelle...right? I absolutely LOVE them! I've been racking my brain for the best place to hang the mask so everyone can see it. Very cool!

I feel so lame now. The gift I sent wasn't nearly that good.

I got my gift the other day! It probably even came before New Years but I'm really bad about checking my mailbox.

I got a nice little card, a book of foreign insults, a magnet that reads "BEER WILL CHANGE THE WORLD - I don't know how, but it will", a handsewn Christmas tree ornament (which is really cool by the way), and some Rhubarb and Custard treats. I haven't had the courage to try one yet!



Thanks Santa!

I completely forgot to post on here - its been a hectic past couple of weeks!

I received my pressy - In my excitement I didn't read (or maybe there wasn't one) the name on it - although from the signature on the customs thing I think my santa was Jenny...?

I got a great book - 'A Women's Europe' - Heaps of awesome short stories which kept me entertained for a weekend in between my b/fs racing - planning on finishing it tomorrow and some goldfish shaped crackers which are almost too cute to eat - why can't we get amazing cute snacks here?!?

Will try to get a pic up after the holidays!

Thanks Santa!

I got my gift. Was a genius idea, especially since im coming to America!! Totally love it. Thanks Will!

The note reads:

AUTHENTIC RED STATE SURVIVAL KIT
Nobody likes to stand out in a crowd! Now you dont have to! This kit comes complete with everything necessary to blend in on your next visit to the U.S
* Genuine Browning Rifles Buckmaster cap
*Recent issue of American Rifleman - the official publication of the National Rifle Association
* Full - Color election results map, showing the results of the 2008 presidential election.

Simply refer to the enclosed full-color United States Map. When travelling in any of the red areas, simply utilize the items provided, and enjoy your stay in conservative "Middle America"!

* For additional cover, you can order our Bible Belt protection kit - ensuring even the deepest red state visits go without a hitch!

So genius! Love it!! And im so gonna wear the cap! (Although, I wonder what will happen if I wore it in blue states?)

I got my secret santa gift in yesterday!!!! It was fabulous with some lip balm and spa stuff from NZ and then the SWEETEST shot glass I've ever received ever in life about going to"the Baaaaa" on one side and a sheep on the other! HAHAHA so fabulous. AND a lovely little note with a dirty little secret about liking Celine Dion. I'll take pics of everything here soon...

You're good - it's the optional Bible Belt kit that you have to watch out for in those pesky blue states....

The hat is actually quite useful in any of the 'flyover' states - where the first day of hunting season is usually a day off from school!

Glad you liked the book. And you've GOT to eat the goldfish! They are yummy. I just thought it'd be funny for you to get a bag of fish.

Well I've been slacking, but Michelle sent me this a few weeks ago:



Apparently the first thing people think of when they consider me is a Mankini....niiiiice!

Keep your eyes on the drunk thread, if you're really lucky one day I might be wearing it in a photo

That's obviously from SGRHewitt since he completely copied the present I got him.

Also my T-shirt was from Mbo108 in case anyone was wondering.

I felt bad that you were getting no gifts...and it was sitting next to the man cup I got Jenny, just seemed right.

Just kidding, that was really nice of you to make sure Brett got something since he did set the whole thing up.
