I didn't realize you guys were serious. I don't want anything. The only "toy" I have been looking at is a shortwave radio but that is pretty far away at the moment. Nor is it really necessary. And.. no, definitely do *not* send dogs.

As far as firearms, I have been doing a little research. I think it is okay to own one in my home but the possession requirements are rather strict. I live outside the city limits so I think I am okay to own them. It's transporting them that I don't get. How are you supposed to take your weapon to the range? There is quite a lot about this state I still don't get. I prefer a place like Idaho where the government pretty much leaves you alone.

I joked earlier about pint glasses. Don't get me wrong you can't have enough of them!

But I guess whomever draws my name, whatever they think is a good gift is fine with me.

Historical books on Eastern Europe.
Sci-fi books from your favorite author.
Bootleg season I of common sense (just kidding). :BlueGoof:
Recipies for home made brews.
GWB plush toy for my dog.

To me it's more about giving than recieving.

And please no Red Rider BB guns.

Whoever!
"...Whomever my name is drawn by..." would be correct.

I've decided to correct everyone's incorrect use of the words whom and whomever when ever I read them from now on... or at least until I don't feel like it anymore--nothing personal.

No problem. I've butchered the English language for nearly 40 years!

Would it be safe to assume a box or two of Captn' Crunch cereal would be able to make it from across the Atlantic to Denmark, without getting confiscated, mistaken for a bomb and detonated or... fondled by airport security? You haven't been able to get it here since sometime in the 90's, and I'd just like to taste it again for nostalgia's sake.. :D

BjornP - I think it's fine, but cannot get a definitive answer at usps.com.

If nobody knows for sure, I'll give them a call soon. I saw no special restrictions for Denmark.

Thanks :), and after googling it does look as if there would be no legal problem with it as long as it's labelled a gift. Otherwise it gets terminated.

Do you really want the cereal or the prize inside the box?

This time the prize inside the box is the cereal. But if there is a choice between with-prize and no-prize Captn Crunch.... well... :blushing:...I'd like the one with the prize. :proud:

(Edit: Of course, Captn Crunch isn't the end all, it's just the only thing I could think of. As an aside, I would love to read your local newspaper, so once you're done with it, instead of throwing it out and if you're not sending the gift via amazon, stuff it into the package, please. Would be a fun read for me.)

Yet another thread photobombed by gratutious cat pics!

Keep them up, it never gets boring! :lol:

This is a very important question, Bjorn... do you want those with or without crunchberries?

(Caution, "Crunchberries" are not actual berries.)

Well it was fun last year so might as well give it a go again.

That is all.
