    Yeah especially if your sending your SS gift to me!

    I worked out generally what the postage was, then budgeted that way.

    Last year I spent about $22-25 for my gift and $32 for air-mail postage to Australia, although that was a more extreme distance for a SS gift to go.

    I'll be in.

    I am in again!

    Last year Dandy rocked as a SS! I hope my person was as thrilled with her stuff . . .

    I will send my questionnaire soon!

    Yo Mendelman, I had your name last year and gave you The Onion. Check post #288 in last year's thread.

    Dunno. I got stiffed a few years ago. But TO is saying he has his SS for me (was my SS the last two years). Only I suspect it is just a dead bug he found in his garage...

    Count me in as well.

    This time I know how to ship beer!
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    I'm in as well, but don't expect a lot from me this year and it may be a little late.

    This sounds like fun! Count me in. I might have to try my dad's approach to gifts and just buy some good ol' california wine.

    Oh Yeah!

    I've already got my gift ready for ZG.....I have to draw ZG by the way.... even if she's not participating this year

    SIGN ME UP

    If Rumpy picks me, the people of Buggalo won't be having a "safe" Holiday Season this year

    Do we get to include our Limey Friends this year in the events? I mean if some of us have to anticipate vegemite, why not canned kippers as well??
