  • Winning lottery ticket so I could get all the expensive bikes and kit I want then leave most of them in the shed since I wouldn't want to wear out the expensive kit on ordinary rides and commuting!!

    Or would settle for a nice £800 crosser with kit to convert into a fast and light tourer and the clothing and kit to use it for whatever I might want to. Plus a few other things I'm too polite to mention on here yet as I'm new to the forum so not sure how far I can go!!

    Santa, I'll have what he's having!

    Failing that I'd like a titanium seat post and some flash pedals for my 'best bike'.

    What I'd love - any top of the range road racer or cyclo-x bike, failing that Dura-Ace for my current bike.
    What I've asked for - as many Open University vouchers as my loved ones will buy, so I can actually afford to carry on studying.

    Oh, well. One day I'll have that bike of my dreams.

    Nina from Nina and the Neurons please.

    A big box of sleep and peace and quiet to be washed down with copius amounts of ale and fed by the hugest bag of pggy feet imaginable would be next.

    Or Nina from Nina and the Neurons bearing gifts of the second request.

    Really? A distant second to Katie from 'I Can Cook' IMHO :wink:

  • How about a copy of "Blame Wiggle", the exciting new retail-based board game for all the family? Recreate those heated arguments with the popular mail order house in the comfort of your own living room! Comes complete with dice, counters, deck of "blame cards", board and a near-pristine Focus Izalco with a knackered headset. :)

    Where can I buy this amazing game?

    I don't think a children's TV presenter would fit inside a stocking. However I'm pretty sure these would

    Any other stupidly high priced but small cycling gear will do

    Coming soon to a toyshop near you....or maybe not. Also in the same range: "Sepp Blatter's Subbuteo", possibly the most low-tech football game ever invented. ;)

    Actually, this is the board game I'd like to get for Christmas:

    Indeed; there can't be many things in life more satisfying or rewarding than a trawl through some of Steve Coogan's old material. Although News International employees probably know all about that. ;)

    And we all know how lovely, kind, gentle, sweet, well mannered, and generally wonderful the divine Miss P is.

    Nina and Miss P bearing me gifts of ale and piggy feet before making sure the fire is blazing away nicely and exiting the room silently before occasionally returning stealth Ninja/Geisha like to re-fill my glass and bowl of piggy bits before leaving again ad letting me watch The Great Escape, On Her Majesty's Secret Service (with the divine young Diana Rigg) and from Russia With Love (with the equally as divine Daniella Bianchi) With no interruptions.

    Nina from Nina and the Neurons. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Nina. She's lovely. And she's a scientist too. And appears in panto. What more could you anyone want?

    And she said the word "poo" while explaining how bowels the work the other day and kept a straight face.

    I heard on the grapevine that Berlusconi once invited her to a bunga bunga party with George Clooney and Mario Balotelli but she turned him down saying that he was a tw4t and she had no desire to see Angela Merckel's foo foo (which at the end is quite understandable). Or so I heard. Allegedly.
  • The very yummy Konnie Huq. Or my hair back please. Other than that i'd be happy with an entry into the Whitton or Dragon Ride. And a massive bar of Toblerone.
  • Holly Willoughby

    I'll fight you for her, unless of course she appreciates I'm the far better specimen of the male example. :lol:

    Seriously though, pretty well got all I need in real terms, I'd just love "Santa" to provide my daughter with a proper career opportunity, She works bloody hard and deserves a break.

    Think he may mean (well, I'm in complete wonderment at...) the direction of this thread.

    What could be a sensible present idea thread has turned into so pre pubescent ramblings and quite pathetic simpering...

    Back to reality...

    Simple things like De Feet Dura gloves, more Assos chamois cream, and DHB headband (sadly changed with a garish logo, but my old one is great and I can't find anything better as th gore ones have huge labels apparently).

    Could do with some green swissstops, but I think the buyers may baulk at the price...
