Yikes and away!



I personally don't mind receiving after Christmas - later gifts I think are just as fun and a nice surprise! Anyone else object?

Sounds good.  Is there some sort of question thing we should fill out so we have something to go off of?  I mean we all know a bit about each other but specifics are good, and you never know what someone already has.

I was thinking maybe getting something that represents where the gift giver is from, a piece of memorabila or something funky like that.

Just to clarify, Trek, does that mean you don't want 'The Game', or does that mean that it would make you feel really, really good if you got it?
