    Christmas and the following couple weeks have been manic so apologies for belated thank you to Santa.

    Parcels kept coming through my letterbox all week! I received...

    A nosehair trimmer (how did you know??)
    Nanobot robot thingy (which will sit on my desk)
    Gears of War medic kit (themed plasters!)
    Lots and lots of chocolate (eaten)
    A Christmas card*

    *I can't read the name on the card though as it's a bit smudged! boo can you do some digging so I know who to construct a shrine (colon snake) too? Unless they want to out themselves :-)

    Thanks!

    Hope everyone had a great Christmas & New Year, and many thanks again to boo for organising.

    I also love whoever else sent a parcel made out to Colon 'Name' Snake. And to my everlasting shame my Santee was spoiler - he was a very naughty boy.

    As Secret Santa organiser, I took an oath of secrecy, and if I divulge any Santa's details I run the risk of being strung up by the baubles.

    If your Santa wishes to identify him / her / itself, then that's fine, but I'm not saying nuffink!

    I was hoping they'd make it without a proper name as an adressee.
    Apologies for the complete lack of wrapping paper. play.com were being dicks, not sending to Belgium and they don't have a gift wrap option when you buy.

    Just thought of checking this thread because I found a folder somewhere waaaay hidden at the bottom of my bookmarks called "EGSS". Apparently I found a bunch of cool gift options on Firebox many moons ago and forgot all about it. Maybe for 2013. :-)

    @Salaman

    Thank you! No worries about the lack of wrapping paper - like a small child I find the envelopes as exciting as the gifts themselves.

    The main thing is that when the cute secretary next gives herself a paper cut I can save the day with my Gears of War medkit.

    Now why would you want to make yourself unbeddable?

    After waiting nearly a month and still no sign of my Secret Santa gift, I was just about to console myself and buy my own Colon Snake.

    But upon returning home from work last night, I discovered that I'd received a parcel. Once the kids were in bed, I fell upon the parcel like a child on Christmas Day. Opening the lid, I discovered a note from Mr EG Secret Santa himself, Boo, and some lovely wrapped Christmas pressies :D

    To my delight I received
    - a Technic Lego set - the very same one Boo has been doing his stop motion builds with
    boo wrote:
    My second stop motion epic!
    - a Pacman oven mitt
    - book on juggling and some juggling balls

    A massive thanks to Boo, who really didn't need to do this, but I am genuinely touched and thrilled with me belated presents!

    Yay! Great stuff :) You realise we expect videos of your new mad juggling skills, intercut with some stop motion of your own. Get to it!

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    \o/

    I know F_P's Santa got his gifts in the post, but I guess some Post Office temp worker ended u-p with that particular parcel.
    Hope it was the used Colon Snake off ebay.

    Anyway - all's well that ends well.

    I hereby declare EG Secret Santa 2012 closed!

    In January!

    Who'da thunk it!

    Are you kidding?
    It's going to take all our combined efforts to stop Kalel from winning everything.

    Again.

    ;o)

    You'd have to narrow it down to geeky gamer chicks maybe?
    Although the chocolate may have swayed a fair few non gamer girls but you scoffed those apparently. Trimming the nose hairs probably will increase your chances of getting laid though, so it might still work.
