Hey, Ho! CapriUni's Secret Santa. Tell the elves not to sweat it on my account, an unbound book in ascii and sent via email would just as fine as a knitted one (and, by cricket, I have enough trouble with my cats curling up on my paper-printed books! I can't imagine how diffecult it would be to read a knit one)!
And remember, to, that my birthday is January 12, and we have a tradition in my family of a week's grace period with that, and (frankly) I'm willing to extend my Holiday season into February, this year so tell your elves (and yourself) that time is not of the essence!
(Heck! 'Twould be wonderful to recieve the present in June, for that matter... I'm in this for the giving, not the recieving)
