Default Dear Santa, I would like...

Go on, tell Santa your Christmas wish list; money and laws of physics no object.

Please improve on the youngest Col's offering, who put "some chocolate coins and a sugar mouse" as their main requisites!

Chocolate coins! Yes please...

I'd like a new job, please. Astronaut to Mars would do.

This is going to sound horribly Slacker Generation, but I'd like a PS2 and GTA San Andreas, please, Santa baby.

I don't want anything really; firstly I can't think of anything and secondly I'd have to pay for it anyway. I was being quizzed by our lass whether I'd enjoyed 'Fermat's Last Theorem' by Singh; told her I hadn't read it so that might turn up. If it did I'd probably enjoy it.

Junior Col #1 is getting GTA San Andreas (and the computer CD-ROM Battle for Middle Earth.

Green & Black 70% chocolate coins for me, please. Can't think of much else. Oh, maybe a decent car stereo for Nina the Micra.

There's a slew of DVDs (Spartacus special ed., Dawn of the Dead director's cut, etc. etc.) and books (of course), but a PS2 and GTASA are the true wants. Too expensive, mind.

Hear hear. Except the astronaut bit - I would need a new figure for that (space suits don't tend to come in 'short and fat' size)

I also would not say not to the money to pay for my MSc ....

Spartacus special ed
The Kirk Douglas film? I'm rather fond of that, actually, and have it on standard DVD. What does the special edition have that is extra?
