    Secret Santa 2009 Edition: Now with more Tang!

    Who's in for 2009? Let your interest be known!

    Who's interested in coordinating it this year? kjelsadek did a great job last year. Any chance we can talk you into coordinating again this year?

    For those of you who are new or haven't participated in the past follow this link for a past edition.

    I do realize that this message may seem a bit early but last year we started about a week later and people worried that there wasn't enough time to execute the perfect Secret Santa gift.

    I'm in

    Hard to believe this will be the third year for me.
    For those who have avoided this fun...it's nice to have four Cybubs now on somewhat of a first-name basis.
    Every now and then I see a reference to one of the gifts I sent (Veloise is a fan of several smaller themed items; if one's a bomb, there are a couple more that "fit"), and I'm still using/enjoying some of the items received.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I don't know, that head pillow thing looks like it come in pretty handy at PC meetings during the winter months!

    Let's see.....I think a Mojave Green rattlesnake and a tin of chocolates would be in order Oh and a vial of CroFabTM antivenin

    Come on.....with Rumpy in prison* and Budgie preoccupied with pron*, someone's got to step in to the void

    * The One cannot confirm these statements as truth and is mostly taking a wild guess at what these two might be doing these days

    Dandy Warhol got this last year:

    http://www.cyburbia.org/gallery/show...00/ppuser/1565

    I was way late, but I stuck with it through a few failed ideas. I was having a pint or 7 of Spotted Cow at the local pub and reading comics when I was able to put the color blue and simple together for an idea.

    It is made of Black Walnut. Carved with chainsaw, reciprocating chisels, hand chisels, and an angle grinder. I finally got the pics up in a gallery! YAY!

    It's called "Blue Duke"
