I'm in, so you'll at least get a present from someone other than yourself. Have we agreed on a limit? For me, it doesn't matter. With or without a limit, no one is getting a Wii from me. I'm not broke, but yeah. I can scrounge up a pretty good present.

I'm up for it. I only suggested a limit thinking that might sway a no into a yes. But I guess some people won't do it either way.

Anyway, Amazon wishlist. UK-specific, so if a US person gets it they'll only get stung by the high exchange rate rather than shipping charges... :)

I'm making one as we speak. One word of warning, if/when you get me something that's not on the list; don't send me candy/sweets. They will go to waste. I've given up most flour products and sugar. Unless Kinder Eggs are to be had.

I am in. Do I have to create a wishlist of some kind, or do you just want to wing it?

Man, . has a boner for Nigella Lawson. Gotta be the accent.

I think if you want to you can create a wishlist, but it's more fun if the person has to figure you out and get something that they think you'll like.

Gifts are more fun that way, I think anyway.

Oh man. To top off the accent, she's a nice looking woman who can cook. I would totally do her.


Oh, and I am up for winging it. I don't care what I get. I just didn't want to be like the asshole I got at PA that gave no ideas whatsoever. Gah, I want to punch him.

I guess I agree. She's interesting to watch. She has a funny way of talking, and I don't mean the accent, but like the things that she says. Why did they change the name of her show from Nigella Feasts to Nigella Express? Because they don't want to portray her as fat, but as a fast woman?

Nigella Feasts has more complicated, time-consuming recipes. Nigella Express has fast, easy-to-make meals and dishes.
For whatever reason, I doubt I'd cook much out of her cookbooks. I just put them up so I could remember to get them over time.


And she's not fat, you're fat. Or whatever.

I'm really torn. I want to do this, but I won't be home over Christmas / New Years so I might not get the package immediately.

Yay, we've got a healthy crop of awesome people signed up for this now.

I'll be running the script on Saturday to mass-email everyone but you (obviously) still have time to put your name in and spread the Christmas cheer.

Just PM or e-mail (sporkandrew@gmail.com) me your address (with a name that can go on the package) and an e-mail address that you can be reached at for notification of who you got.

You know you want to.

E-mails have now gone out. Hotmail doesn't seem to like my mailer so plut check your spam for an email from 'gw14@stuffedllama.com', everyone else should be fine.

I've got a master list so if someone hasn't gotten their e-mail by tonight let me know and I'll tell you.

Go forth and be festive!

(Oh, and ignore the '\r\n' at the end of address lines. Apparently I'm an idiot.)

God help whomever I'm sending a gift to. Still trying to decide whether to make one, or buy one.
Do not call up what you cannot put down.
