    For any British Santas who are missing that extra thing to finish off their order, Poundland are currently stocking the original Lover's Guide.

    A great gift for all the family.

    Weird. I specifically remember adding yours last night. I remember I put "JerikTelorian's gift works on both the DS and DS Lite... does yours?"

    Also I just got hit with a $1000 doctor bill, and that's not even with meds. So I'm sorry santee, all the stuff I got you now is what you're going to get. I promise you won't be disappointed, but it wasn't nearly as much as I'd hoped.

    :( Sorry! I'll ship it off on Monday.

    Because Wolverine's penis is obviously made of adamantium. They had some left over, and he was like, "Do it up."

    Woo!

    I'm debating once I receive my package whether I should use my Canon XTi DSLR or if I should use my new Env2 camera phone to keep up with the standard of blurry, badly colorized pictures that have set the standard so high this year..

    If my santa has a preference, please inform me by proxy. :D

    Or perhaps I could do something even more interesting....

    I'm glad you liked them. I was worried since they're such a niche gift, and you had posted about the ones you had like a year ago, but once I found them, I had to get them. Only took a week to arrive to you, as well. Happy Christmas!

    SECRET SANTA GIFT AHOY!

    Came home and saw a package for me. I've had a pretty shite day so this was good news. But what's this? ROYAL AIR MAIL? I nabbed me a Brit! :)

    I'm actually shit for details right now (I'm in need of a shower, a beer, and a good night's sleep) but I have nothing but thanks to Jam Warrior! The sad news is that the chocolate egg did not make the trip in one piece and I had to dispose of it via my sister. I thoroughly enjoyed your letter and all the gifts (I actually didn't have the zombie guide so its a real treat for me!) and I plan to ration out all the treats to last me a while.

    Don't you dare bring logic into this!
    true. but if you recall, Mummy said that she'd be sending 2 packages. one with... chocolates....

    I actually sent 3 parcels - part 1, which needed to be opened before part 2 because of a little thing that won't make sense without part 1, then I re-packaged part 2, cos it weighed too muck, and re-send it as part 2 and part 3.

    Kinder eggs are quite different to Cadbury's cream eggs - the chocolate is a mixture of milk and white chocolate (although white chocolate isn't really chocolate at all as it has no cocoa solids in it), is much thinner, and of course doesn't have the sickly, but somehow yummy goo inside it. Yes, I am quite picky about chocolate!
