Subject: RE: BS: My Secret Santa present has arrived!

Hoorah! My present came today! Yea!

I could even tell you who sent it, 'cause her name is on the return address. Thing is, it isn't her MUDCAT name … so I'm no wiser!

OK – inside there's something in an envelope so I guess it would tell me what 'Catter is my lurvely lurvely (and now penniless – sheesh, how much did this thing cost t' post????) Santa if I opened it, but I have this thing about opening stuff ON Christmas.

Which I can't do, 'cause I'll be away so I thought I'd open it the night before I go.

Well – I say "it". I should say "them" 'cause the box is full of pressies, all with little niggling sticky-notes on them. "Nope – not this one", "Uh – Uh", etc.

Anyone remember back in the '60s when Kodak did an "Open Me First" campaign? I desperately wanted an "Open Me First" (i.e. camera) so my bl**dy family put "Open Me First", "No – Open Me First", "I'm the one to Open First" on every single present under the tree. Got me so worked up I was sick as a dog by Christmas Eve.

So … to wait or not to wait?

I'm already feelin' a bit queasy ….
