Got it!

The URL for selecting our company Christmas presents has just gone up this morning, and now it's down again "due to overwhelming interest in one of the products in the selection". I'm not surprised; if you were faced with a choice between

- 6 bottles of plonk;
- enough chocolate to make you sick;
- a selection of candles, loofahs and rubber duckies "to make bathtime special!"; and
- a breadmaker;

or alternatively, have 50 euros donated to charity in your name, what would you choose?

Thank God the site stayed up long enough for me to receive my confirmation e-mail. Whatever happens next, I've got a legally binding document to say my breadmaker has been reserved for me and will be ready for collection in December!

Breadmaker? The best I've ever got was a diary, and the last couple of years Ford didn't even give us that.

It's the only good thing that's come out of this merger with Compaq that I can see: Christmas hampers! hp NEVER gave us anything for Christmas, except for the customary 50% extra on your salary for that month.

Last year, I got a set of salad bowls -- I just missed out on the juicer.

It's a handy way of filling the kitchen cupboards.

BTW. Remember my Spara ficlets? I'm sending you a sequel.
