    Are we supposed to tell people that their gift is coming? I would rather just send it and let it be a total surprise.

    I am looking for bubble wrap.
    Looking, Looking for bubble wrap, to send bubbles. Don't want to take the chance of a premature explosion!!!!! Then it will be in the mail.
    Look, you all are now wondering who is getting bubbles.
    Only one very lucky person!
    Anticiption, ain't it great!
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    What the envelopes stuffed with small-denomination, non-sequential legal tender weren't enough, now I gotta serve a Mod well? No pressure, please

    Tranplanner your package is officially in the hands of the erstwhile United States Postal Service . But don't believe the customs tag one iota, and don't worry -- this contraband offers no discernible odor.

    I think I'm going to end having to FedEx my gift to the lucky recepient...I have no idea what to get, and precious little time to figure it out.

    Gedunker - now I'm worried

    How does the food thingy and Canada work again? Canadians can't send food out of the country or is it that they can't receive food from out of the country?

    We can't send to the US. You guys can send almost anything up here.

    Actually, it may depend on the food. Customs is pretty picky about "raw" meat and cheese products from Europe.(foot and mouth, other bacteria)

    Pre packaged items, like candy and condiments are usually OK.

    Well, I didn't mean *everything*... I mean, drug running and gun running is generally unacceptable.

    JNL picked out your gift last night and should hit the post tonight.

    JMF - if all goes well with customs, your package should arrive sometime before the year ends.

    I wish you a RUMPY Christmas!!!!!!!

    Oh, Rumpster........

    Your package is in the mail,


    Your Christmas package, silly

    And I lied to the Feds, they were probably trying to help me and now it will probably explode in the plane or freeze solid on the way there.
    So what I am saying is that it could be an exploded present by the time it gets there. I REALLY hope it is not. But it will be a learning experience.

    Be sure to check out the packing material, too.

    I had a great time shopping for you!!!!
    I hope you enjoy it as much!
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    Is it a puppy with a bomb attached to it? Yes!!! I'll be waiting for it. Thanks Queen B, this could be a great scientific lesson for us in case I decide to ship myself somewhere, like that guy in Dallas.

    SGB- yours will be on the way either saturday or monday. I still have no idea what to get you, but I think I'm zeroing in on it.
    A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."
