I don't suppose mentioning ducks would have any protective effect would it? They watch me you know. All the time. I can tell.
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

Dear Secret Hogfather,

I'm very excited to be receiving your gift, and will appreciate whatever it is.
I'm not very fussy. I love books. Discworldy things from the shoppe are always loved.

Things I would not like very much involve nuts and pink.

:thumbr:

Dear Hogfather,

I would like a copy of Wings (last book in Truckers series). I noticed recently that I don't have one. I think the one I read years ago came from the library. Second hand is fine.

Otherwise something nice to eat would also be good.I like liquor chocolates!

Dislikes
Bath stuff
Alcohol (at least I shouldn't have it)
Bits of clutter as I have nowhere to put it

Abi the Tartar sadly has had to drop out (her school wouldnt wear her having the Friday off) but she would still like her Hogfather pressie. She is not fussy what it is, but like most 13 year old girls, she is obsessed with One Direction :(
If already bought, dont worry. She'll be happy with anything. Also likes stud earrings
ladyramkin likes Anything Discworldy
Anything to do with Shakespeare
Earrings

Likes but cant tolerate, alas alcohol and sweet things
Same goes for bathtime smellies
Nuisance, aren't I

As with Abigail, if already bought. will be happy with anything. Just like pressies :D
