I got a rare Kitchenaid mixer [in October].

And I received a gift card, cash, and a Kitchenaid mouse pad.

I got just what I wanted:
1. a cheap hand mixer for when my KA Pro 6 quart 600 watt is "just a little too big"
2. a second set of the "spin and store" containers "as seen on TV".
3. A christmas rug to put on some of the bare floor which is patiently waiting for our new carpet after the flood
4. A fleece blanket to keep me warm when I am keeping my leg up and icing it.
5. A beautiful One of a kind Christmas ornament that can sit in its box on the table since we don't have a tree!
6. Candy....because who can't use that!
7. A set of four beautiful Laura Ashley Christmas dessert plates
8. The Top Chef and 3 other cookbooks to make up for the fact all mine are in storage
9. More to come when I can meet with my family and a couple of friends!

It's okay, Vera. Thanks to the Flu Santa brought me I lost about 5 pounds and that is a gift in itself....you honestly don't have to return them!

Quite a few things, but the most notable being an Audi R8.

Santa screwed up. I was very naughty this year :P

Pay the 5 bucks and get John Cleese. It's well worth it.

Other than th at, I use "Sylvia"--the one who sounds like a phone sex operator.
