What did you get?

Thus far we've heard that Colm got a "pink popcorn maker", and Warner got some stuffed pigs.

I got a "Power Squid".

I haven't sent mine yet. :(

I didn't play because they wouldn't call it Secret Dr. Maulana Karenga

Nice, a Power Squid would be a nice little gift. I wouldn't mind one of those myself but I'm too cheap to pay ThinkGeek for one.

Why haven't you sent it KC? The ?off police are going to come take away your power squid.

Software developers and IT workers, as a group, are some of the worst procastinators on the planet. Cory already set the deadline as a late January 6th, yet people are still stumbling around trying to figure out how to get around to the onerous task.

Yeah, I was horribly late ordering muppet's gift and was afraid I'd be the subject of ridicule and scorn for a while, but apparently the heavily smoking vendor came through with flying colors. :)

I have it ready, I was just out of town from the 22nd through Monday... and have been on site all week. I'm doing it tomorrow.

KC - you have my wife to thank for the squid. She thought it'd be a good gift. I didn't get it from ThinkGeek though.

If I remember the instructions correctly, the 9th was the deadline for posting anyway...

I haven't gotten a thing, although Amazon says the gift I sent was delivered.

Ah, I'm told my present did arrive and was enjoyed by all.
