Woot! Just got home and got my first couple of things for my SS and some cute wrapping paper. I was wondering.....if i wanted to get say some wet or dry food as little pet gifts (not that i will or won't) do i risk getting what i think they might like, or do i have to find out if they use expensive brands? in which case would go way over the $18-$23 budget..?

Alright!
(wow the postal inspectors would just LOVE us huh?
) by the way- when I went to Garden Ridge this week for my Christmas ornaments- they had a little gnome there - it was bent over with its little butt cheek hanging out of a hole in the back of its pants
I SOOOOOO almost bought it!

Oh well I guess I will have to buy some more!
Well that was practice chocolate...you have to test how many days the chocolate is good for. You may have to repeat this test several times before the actual "secret santa chocolate" is sent. That's just science.

I've got most of my shopping done already, just looking for one more thing and then of course, the local chocolate shop

Ahhh... the science behind a good SS gift. Good to know. I believe I'll have to perform this test myself a few times. I am shipping overseas after all, and it will take a while to get there.

What kind of chocolate was it? We want details!
I can't give details!!!! Then everyone will know who I have! Shame on you!

Well since you twisted my arm... It was Lindt milk chocolate.
I was going to stick it away until needed but it called me during the night Saturday.
I still have a few balls of chocolate left but figure my SS would like their very own bag.

I'm sure someone will want me!
Or rather, I'm glad I'm not YOURS because buying presents for 11 cats would drain my wallet
