After last years successful ObscureInternet Secret Santa it was obvious that it would become on ObscureInternet tradition. Therefore when December 2008 quickly crept up on us, we chose a theme and prepared for more random present giving. This years theme was a gift from a pound shop and a mix CD.
My item arrived by registered post on Christmas eve (a clear sign of a busy Secret Santa). The pound shop item was Glade Candle with a Christmas scent, which a like. The wife isn’t too happy with it, but she insists on sticking those Air Wick FreshMatic Automatic Sprays around the house, which I’m not happy with, so I’ll just use it when she’s out of the house.
Now when it came to the Mix-CD there was a little problem, described on a attached note.
I had received a couple of DVD-R filled with DivX movies instead, which looking at the bright side meant I did not have to worry about receiving music I might hate.
If you are wondering (as I was) T.A.O.J.J.B.T.C.R.F is ‘The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford’ which along with ‘No Country for Old Men’ are a two films I haven’t seen yet and have been wanting to watch for a while.
S.O.A.P. is ‘Snakes on a Plane’, which unfortunately along with ‘Talladega nights’ had CRC errors. However I’m more interesting in ‘Zodiac’ which I’ve never heard of, but it looks interesting.
So, overall this Santa gets a thumbs up, I can watch a few films in a nice smelling room.
Looking forward to next year’s now.
