For Sale - One Santa, some wear and tear... [Nov. 27th, 2009|04:07 pm]

Well, I've gone and put myself up on eBay!

Would have preferred a funnier write-up, but I didn't have a lot of time. Wanted it to finish with plenty of time to figure out the details, assuming anyone takes me up on it. Also, given the nature of the thing, and that people would be allowing a stranger into their homes, I thought something not too silly would be a good idea. I wanted to put it up under services, but for that you have to quote a firm figure. If someone can figure a better category than Personalised Gifts, that will let me do the auction format, would love to hear it.

Feel free to spread the word, too. On one hand I'm hoping some nice family will get me for the cost of petrol money. On the other, if bidding went insane, that'd be kind of nice. First pref though is cover my costs and give some kids a great surprise.

I Santa-ed for one particular family for a few years, and loved doing it, so I'm half hoping to be able to again. As it is, I contacted my friend Glenn and told him my beard was gone in preparation for tomorrow, so I would be able to pay a visit in costume to his kids at Christmas. Looking forward to that.

I just posted the link on my Facebook, as I know quite a few people there myself. Good luck finding a fun gig for the day!

Looks great!

One minor nit-pick:
"but so as long as my petrol costs and eBay fees are covered"

delete the first 'as'.

Thank you!

Wish I could be Father Christmas for Clara :)

Oh well, some years we'll be down in Melb for Chrissy, so maybe then, if I can wrangle the time :)
