Secret Santa


At work we indulged in the titillating activity known as Secret Santa - the game where you give and receive gifts and the giver is unknown. It is invariably poorly played as most are too keen to inform others of their recipients. I received this Lonsdale bag from a colleague whom, I reasoned, had clearly sought the most sophisticated and elegant accessory he could find for under £8. Apparently, he had actually chosen this item for its utter lack of sophistication and/or elegance.

I agree on the bag. It is not exactly my kind of thing.

Winston, is the Football Casual influence slipping in? Probably not, the man bag isn't really part of that scene is it? Or Lonsdale for that matter. Just forget this comment. Noble effort though.

Easily I agree but I contemplate the list inform should acquire more info then it has.

Just a minor thing but I'm sure you'd want to know. You keep using 'whom' incorrectly; it is used for indirect objects i.e. when you could paraphrase what you've written and use 'him' instead of he. E.g. 'a colleague to whom ...' but not 'a colleague whom ...' :)

Im Germany the brand "Lonsdale" is popular with skinheads because the name includes the letters "ns". Is that so in the UK too?
