    Santa baby has slipped a sable under the tree. For me. As I've been an awful good... girl.

    No wait. Anyway my present has turned up. Cheers Santa! Will save it for the big day. Not long now... :)

    @Salaman If it was DOTA2 then it's not your gift, I get dozens of codes for that on Steam and give them to whoever on my friends list doesn't have it while mashing random keys in the manditory fields, bit cheeky if it was as it's FREE :D
    Aaah. Damn. So much for secret Santa. :-)
    I did get Dota2 but didn't think anything of it. I assumed it might be miss sent.
    With Christmas closing in I recalled it and told Boo that if you were my Secrete Santa I might have actually received something already a while ago without realising it was my gift.
    As luck would have it you were my uber super duper secret santa, so I assumed this was ye'ole gift.

    Looks like youtube is back on the menu!

    Well bit of a controversy but I opened my present today (off to the in laws for a few days so wanted to open it in private...just in case), and it was bloody good that I did too!

    I guess it being addressed to 'Colin Danathjo Snake' was the give away.

    It started with a printout of my below message below

    danathjo wrote:
    A bit of hose pipe will do for mine, nothing fancy.

    Multi coloured would be good though, like the pattern they have on public transport to cover the stains.
    Followed by 'be careful what you wish for, lots of love from your EG secret santa'

    So then I pull out a long flesh coloured piece of hose pipe :) absolutely brilliant, along with a copy of Dead Island GOTY which i've almost bought for myself several times.

    So thank you EG SS for giving me quite a laugh, really looking forward to playing it later when I get back from the in laws, or maybe a cheeky hour this morning if the little one has an early nap.

    Like I said right at the beginning. Interesting doesn't have to mean expensive. It's great that some people can afford to be generous, but it's the thought that counts.

    And isn't it wonderful to know that there's been some weirdo from internetland thinking about you for the past couple of weeks...

    Er...

    I'm no weirdo, although I am the only person to find my poor santee gift fookin hilarious. I was showing the missus, with tears of laughter running down my cheeks, and she was just looking at me blankly.† So to my santee, whoever you are, I'm sorry. Unless you still find things like farting in the supermarket and moving away and leaving the wife to take the blame funny, I may have ruined Christmas for you this year.

    DaisyD's arrived the other day, it had three pens inside the parcel but outside the wrapping, so her Santa may be looking for them :D

    Thanks to Google translate...
    Nisi vos adhuc rebus quasi farting in supermarket et movens transmigraverunt et relicto ad uxorem sibi imputet funny, ut adflixere Nativitatis pro vobis hoc anno.

    I am shocked the Latins didn't have a word for farting.

    2 Packs of Cadburys mini animals but best of all a awesome Boxing punch pen

    Just spend the last half hour chasing the missus round the house with it!

    Thanks Santee!
