30th Oct 2002, 10:22

Failing that US T Bonds with a mkt value of $100M.

You beat me to it. This was exactly the post I was going to publish, but never mind.

What would I like for Christmas.

I would love some nice busty blondes dressed as elves and letting me unwrap their clothes as if it were a present.:D

On a more serious not, I would like a new car, but I'll settle with some smellies instead :(


30th Oct 2002, 11:04

Don't you mean what would you like????

reminds me of about 10 years ago youngest niece had the ARGOS catalogue open on the TOYS pages and proceeded to say "I WANT that , I WANT that, I WANT that" etc etc to just about everything on the following 200 pages.

She's still a spoilt brat now.

The Spanner-do ettes know better than to try the "I WANT" scheme.

30th Oct 2002, 11:09
Nothing wrong with wanting, spanner-do, so long as you also reaslise that what you want and what you get are two different things (as my gran used to say).

Personally, I want a new life. Failing that, 10million should be enough for me to sort out all but the worst parts of my current life.

An air tight bag for the cat to sleep in.;) :D :p

A nice bloke who doesn't lie. Ahh well I can wish.........:rolleyes:

30th Oct 2002, 12:17
Two front teeth, a Dukla Prague away kit.... ;)

Some nice beer, some nice wine & a good woman to share it with...oh and the new Iron Maiden box-set!

Michael Palin - video and/or book on Sahara

30th Oct 2002, 12:31
1) BRG, soft top MGB, with cream leather seats, and wire wheels please. :)

2) Bright red Triumph Spitfire Mark 3, with GT6 running gear, 4-point harness, racing seats, and a nice loud exhaust.

3) A chipmunk (the aeroplane variety, of course).

4) Someone else to write my PhD thesis.

5) Mel Gibson.

6) Michael Palin ;)

Hmm, not sure where you got that idea from. But I think I know someone who might be able to build you something like that.... ;)

I'd like a huge stack of cash so I can solve most of my current problems and inherit some new and more interesting ones :p

Failing that, DVD's are always fun :D (check with me that I don't already have it though :p)

30th Oct 2002, 13:49
Would that be Dave FFF? I'm not sure I want an exhaust quite as loud as he likes to attach. :eek: :D

30th Oct 2002, 13:49
That reminds me...

On Christmas Eve, a hack asked the question of the Canadian Ambassador, who said he didn't actually need anything, of course. The hack persisted, and eventually the Ambassador gave his reply.

On the Christmas news, the American Ambassador wanted world peace, the Russian wanted an end to poverty and the Canadian a small box of Havana cigars...

30th Oct 2002, 13:56
Peace and civility :p

30th Oct 2002, 15:09
Happiness :)

30th Oct 2002, 16:07
sorry about the "WANT" but we are all allowed to want something or someone for Christmas :)

You want it when?
30th Oct 2002, 16:53
More than 3 hours sleep a night would be great. If you could gift wrap them even better. :D

Failing that X-wind landing ability and someone to buy my 205 CTi. Any sensible / reasonable offer accepted. Oh and if you could drag London about 40 miles further North then my commute would be sane instead of plain stupid.


OK then, another pair of black socks.

A large gun, Osama Bed Linen, plenty of ammo.
A blank weapon, Kim Jung Il & Saddie, plenty of time and stamina.
A reality check for Dubya

31st Oct 2002, 03:36

PS regards to Mrs Claus.

31st Oct 2002, 08:48
Flip Flop Flyer, what a great list - I'd settle for all of them. Especially the top few. Although I've already got a Spitfire... and I'm with AerBabe, the earlier round-tail ones are nicer. I guess I'll just have the Ferrari Enzo instead - you don't really need two, do you?

And AerBabe, I thought you liked Dave's car? Although it was probably a little too loud to be used regularly.....


Who has control?
31st Oct 2002, 10:31
Decent weather on Saturdays please.

31st Oct 2002, 11:01
Some peace & quiet i.e. no late take offs from LHR at 12:30AM

Been too many this year. BAA don't answer complaints properly so have to live with it I suppose.

31st Oct 2002, 11:05
:mad: A longer temper!:mad:

31st Oct 2002, 13:55
My two front teeth. :D

(Private Flying types know why :rolleyes: )

31st Oct 2002, 14:37
Slasher knows his Spits.

A more or less on time arrival at LHR on the 21st or 22nd, and everything else going to sked with no lost luggage.

31st Oct 2002, 14:37
That may be possible in a decade or so, with stem cell research now talking about regrowing teeth...

31st Oct 2002, 15:00
Gusty: reminds me of the conversatiion I had with Santa last year...

SC: "Ho ho ho ! And what would you like for Christmas ?"

G: "Kylie Minogue please"

SC: (Writing on list) "One... Kylie Minogue... CD..."

G: "No - Kylie Minogue "

Needless to say that one ended up with the usual orange-and-walnut-in-a-sock routine :(

Come on SC, how about Samantha Mumba this year ??

31st Oct 2002, 21:14
Hmmmm.........what do I want for Christmas???
How 'bout a bright red Staggerwing with yellow trim and butter soft leather seats. Yeah, that's what I want. <sigh>

1st Nov 2002, 23:08
At the risk of annoying EI-SPARKY *and the huge collection of left-wing wirdo's we have in this country, my Christmas wish is simple ;an air force for Ireland, while we still have a country to have an air force for.
* Sparky, please reply to my e-mail, or I can't go to Dubash. :(

2nd Nov 2002, 02:08
A vacation to a tropical island which serves drinks with those cute little umbrellas in the top! :D

2nd Nov 2002, 10:44
I'd settle for the day off!

FFF (The Original One)

If santa grants me all my wishes, I'll buy you a Spit mate :)

Slasher (The one and only)

Why the fcuk did I not think about the home-making porn kit ? Say, if you borrow my extra Spit can I then borrow your kit ? Like the idea of a 15.000 round machine gun, but somehow thinks it would wreck my Mini first time I fired the thing. Would come in handy when we do the PPrune invasion of Iraq. Care to join? You could be the official brothel locater.

2nd Nov 2002, 15:14

2nd Nov 2002, 16:40
I'm with Tolsti, the day off would be nice............but I doubt it will happen!

2nd Nov 2002, 16:52
Nowt, thanks!!!

A sunny day might be nice though!!! :p

2nd Nov 2002, 17:03
I would like A PPL - yes I know I will have to wait for Jan at least for that.
I would also like better weather and I want my hubby to be sensible for a change.

2nd Nov 2002, 17:11
A posting to the gulf to get Op DESERT STORM II out of the way so i can settle down, purchase my new appartment and get on with my life!

Apart from that:

1) Holiday to New England

2) Alfa 147 2.0 Lirte Twin Spark Selspeed

3) Gulfstream V biz jet

4) A new women in my life

5) A couple of damn good **** ups!

2nd Nov 2002, 19:37

and I want my hubby to be sensible for a change. I suppose christmas is a time of 'miracles' Helen,.... but dontcha think you could be asking the impossible with that one? ;)

3rd Nov 2002, 02:07
Well, it would have been nice to be home for Christmas but not much chance of that.
So, instead a big feast with my friends would be nice.

As for pressies?
Another Ducati. An ST2 would be nice. I don't need the power of an ST4. Or a Ducati Monster 620ie with a custom paint job and hi rise pipes.
Sony Vaio laptop, the model with the minidisc player.
A full time flying job.
A Denon component stereo with Mission speakers.
Big flash tv with surround sound.
A house to put the toys in.

I got my Ducati with me now, got a way cool little MD player, and the ol' computer is still going. So, I'll just hope for the nice feed with my friends. Plus the Aussie I imported is going strong. :D

3rd Nov 2002, 18:31
Time off work at Christmas would be nice, just worked 7 days straight and got another 12 to go!!

Gonewest has the idea!!

ATCBabe what are you doing for Christmas?

3rd Nov 2002, 19:25
An Audi TT ,the Hardtop not the soft in Silver, failing that the soft top.
See I am not that fussy or hard to please.

3rd Nov 2002, 19:54
A Sea Scooter, as shown on www.iwantoneofthose.com oooh, and somewhere warm and sunny to play with it! :D

3rd Nov 2002, 21:26

Off Xmas day but working boxing morning.

Did you have anything in mind????;)

4th Nov 2002, 08:56
Flower, you beat me to it. Audi TT hardtop in Silver would be on my list.
To go flying on Christmas day.That would not go down well at home.
And some decent weather so I can go flying now. I am so easy to please. :D

4th Nov 2002, 18:45
A nice new chess set made of something a little more permanent than plastic and cardboard...

That and to have my family home for Christmas.

4th Nov 2002, 22:21

Whats the chance of some snow to ski on in Scottyland on Christmas morning?

Not having had the pleasure of a visit north of the boarder I wouldn't know. After the skiing a fine Christmas feast would be nice.


4th Nov 2002, 22:38
GoneWestAerBabe :eek: :eek: :eek:



You don't want me gift wrapped too do you?
