Twanta2012 Part Two
You can read Part One HERE. Now, on with the shenanigans.
A candle kit kicks off Part Two, as well it might. Recipient @hinnyhlw, for it is she, tells us “My twantador really hit the nail on the head. What a great first year! Can’t wait to play.” All the nice girls…. oh wait, better not revisit that old rugby song.
I have the envy at @hugeshark’s pressie. I lurve discovering new musics.”Fabulous music for from the beautiful @sciencewitch! Thank you so much!” says V.
Aaaaaah, puzzles! I hate it when they beat me, hate it, yet I have to keep trying. I do hope that @iainlj isn’t that way, cos he says “I still haven’t been able to do it!” Aaaaaah!
It’s Jim! Jim and a thing! His thing is (peers closely) a Melting Snowman. Wait a minute, couldn’t @jimthesg have just popped outside and built one of those?
Ah, now heres’ @julieanon’s two gifts. “Two?” you say, “WTF?” Yes, two. When it looked as though Julie’s original twantador was going to miss the final deadline, a fairy stepped in to help.Her original twanta then popped up at the last minute like Sooty from behind a counter. Lucky old Julie says “Both very much appreciated and I am becoming addicted to the hand cream.”
Ah now this is beautiful, and obviously sent by someone with exquisite taste. Obviously from a woman – can you imagine a man sending this? Pas moi. @kaPOWed says “Thank you #twanta2012 ! Love my pressie!”
An inflatable monkey! I do hope that the valve that you had to blow was not anywhere embarrassing. @lahossner breathlessly gasps “Thank you! How well you know me! I’ve just passed Go!”
This is really pretty and hand-made in Brighton. The gift, I mean, not the recipient. Not that @leontia2001 isn’t gorgeous, I’m sure. I mean *I* would, wouldn’t you? Stop digging, Wombie, and let the lady herself speak. “I must have been a very good girl to get this”. Really? Shame
It’s that @lilianlouvaine, chirruping merrily “Look what I got from #Twanta2012! A kitty, some owl & pussycat magnets, a lipstick pen & a ring tree! Thanks Twanta!” I think this one was a hit.
And now here’s the most beautiful woman taking part this year, although I may be biased. Yes it’s @little_mavis, who says “Aaand my beautiful & amazingly well disguised by exceptional bubble wrap packaging #twanta present. Thank you twanta.” Interesting labelling there…
The lovely @littlebit_bod received somwe smashing egg-cosies that I envy greatly. “Dear Twanta,” she says, “Thank you for my lovely gift. A proper & warm breakie had before Grammie’s B’day walk xx”.
*bites tongue so as not to say anything that might be misconstrued* I’ll leave it to @louicidal, who says “Here’s my excellent & very well-chosen Twanta pressie!”
Here are @louisehector’s three gifts – Where’s Wally, After Eights, and a bored @Thomas_Cat. He must have been fun to wrap up.
“My #Twanta12 present.” says @luciemr, getting the hashtag wrong. “Perfect for my tired tootsies after a hard day at work. Thank you @twanta2012 xx”. Look, you can touch the socks. How sensual.
All I can read on this is “8 tiddly penguins”. I assume, therefore, that they are toy birds that do a wee-wee. Strange gift. “Yay!” says @luggermatt, “Thankyou #TWANTA they will be much enjoyed!”
It’s time for @macjude to show us her little furry bundle of goodness. Yes, that was a double-entendre, since when did you know me to miss an opportunity? She says “Loved my #twanta gift, for the kitten’s first Christmas. Here it is, and here he is.”
It’s @mannymunkeh squealing there “DUDES!!!!! Awesome #twanta2012 pressies”. What’s a “stress banana”, Manny? Is it a sex thing?
This is daft, and therefore perfect for #twanta. Drumstick pencils! @mattcochr says “Thank you, #Twanta *goes off to find all the saucepans*”.
These are lovely. I do like to have wood myself. @mrpeterwood’s opinion? “My #Twanta2012 gift. Should take me until 2013 to figure the puzzles out though.” So he’ll have done them now then.
“Pic of my gorgeous Great British Bake Off notebooks. Thank you sooo much” says @mrsactive. I know nothing of this, and so anything I said would be redundant.
*honky tonk piano music* @mrsashboroscat sashays in wearing feathers and balloons. “Hey @twanta2012 I’m over the moon with my gift! I’ll get it framed before Sunday. I got sweets too. THANK YOU!!” Boo-boo-pi-doo.
@nomdetwume is making words – I’ve just realised; you can probably play a game on your fridge with this. “Inspired #twanta2012 all the way from the Netherlands. Thank you! And thanks to @Wombat37 for organising xx” she says.
I have no idea what this is, but I suspect booze cos @NoYOUcockoff says “My #twanta did a bastarding find job. Look. “
Sexpot @nyncompoop says “My secret Santa. Choc and Lego, it’s almost like they know me! And I love the knitted covers! SKILL! Thank you @twanta2012! And yes the booze has started.” Choclit & booze? Shocking.
Below is a table of the receivers and givers in this post, mainly for those who are looking on a phone and can’t hover over the pics.
