From the Editor... Mark
A great big Happy Christmas to all the Researchers on h2g2 from the team... we love you. And yes, it is love, people, because under this short haircut I'm just an old hippy. Trust me, whatever the Sex Pistols said.
On to the Santa Requests
Can I have some resolve please? Yes, both kinds...
1) The fantastic hangover cure (available in the UK, not sure about everywhere else) because I am going to need it. Lots of it!
2) Resolve so I can manage to get past the fantastic 'Wesk Kebab' on Chiswick High Road without my legs forcing me to wander in there and my brain forcing me to order an extra-large doner with chilli sauce and extra pickled chillies.I seem to do this too often... like last night for instance!
If you can help me with that, Santa, I'll even buy you a beer. Can't say fairer then that!
I would like a 'Lotus Elan' please. Midnight blue... h2g2 colour. As you said... I have been a *very* good girl lately!
Anna is unusually quiet in here... but she still managed to be mentioned elsewhere!
Ginger!! Surely you didn't think Subs get time off for the holidays!
I'm sure that they will need us to do some work so that Anna has something to do on her first day back!
Drat! That's what I was going to get Anna for X-mas. A nice big pile of entries for her inbox!
Santa appeared to be having a little trouble at 'his' own page!
For christmas *I* would like a mini-disc 4-track recorder please. I have been a *very* good boy *all*year.Your beard is funny.
Are you sure that you have been a good boy, Oscar? I will have to ask your mummy first. Can I tell you, young man, that's not a very polite comment on the beard. Things are not looking good for *you* sonny!
ask my mummy... I don't care, I've bribed her already. I'm well good though! And the beard IS a bit funny... how do you make it feel so fluffy and cottony? Ok, it's lovely, it's unique. *grovel, simper* at least I believe in you!! *whimper*
For my christmas i would like a sored an a big rasing car to drive in my gardun that gos faster then my dadys car an i would like aswell a n 64 with mariocart an i would like a pokeman to play cos my freind danial has got one for his birfday last week and i am jelus. I think yore beard is funny too.
My beard is NOT funny.My beard is a perfectly natural, curly white beard. It's only fluffy and cottony because I use 'Pantone Pro V' on it, the one with extra conditioning aloe-vera for fine or fly-away hair! *Yawn*, that's rather a long list for one little boy, don't you think? Why don't you ask for a nice educational toy? A chess set or something? All these new-fangled computer gadgets! It will never catch on. And, Oscar, please will you stop that. The elves don't like it when you do that to them... they are likely to bite you!
i don't fink yore beard is real.... *tugs on Santa's beard*
Watch out...watch out...there's a Greebo about!
~Greebo saunters in... jumps on Santa's knee... ~Me would like a box of doughnuts Santa...like you brought me last year... !~grin~... and the year before... er... and the year before that... ~hopeful grin~
If you believe all that... you must need another drink!... ed!
*Peregrin perches on Santa's shoulder*
I've been a *very* good bird all year, and I haven't killed *any* carrier pigeons. I would love a boxed set of multicoloured haddock for Christmas though.
*Loony, from downunder, saunters in wearing shorts and flip flops, towel flung casually over shoulder and sits on Santa's knobbly knees. A trail of lovely white sand twinkles on the floor of the grotto.* Santa, for Christmas can I have a cure for baldness please. If that is unavailable how about a cure for vanity? Or money... lots!
Poor Santa! I wonder if *he* managed any of those requests! I do hope that he hasn't been put off visiting us though... Christmas just wouldn't be the same.
