Birthday Present

I am faced with a very tricky question. What do I get Mrs RC for her birthday (18 November)? In recent years, I have tried the old cop out of book tokens etc (she reads a lot) but our bookshelves are groaning under the weight of said purchases. I need inspiration.

Anyone got any ideas what I can get Mrs RC for her birthday?

The cuddly toy might work in a sort of Larry Grayson way.

CivIII. Don't be cruel. She thinks computer games are stupid and CIvIII would probably convince her.

New Fiat. She can't drive so that might be an idea.

She once asked me who Sid and Brian were and I told that they were just a pair of clowns and she shouldn't worry about it.

That's what the Firaxis press officer said at the Alpha Centauri release press conference.

Is that the same one where someone asked Meier about AC and he said "What, never heard of it, nothing to do with me already"

Yeah.

"Anyone got any questions for these clowns?"
"Sid, why's your name on the game when Brian made it?"
"What, never heard of it, nothing to do with me already"
"I'll kill him, start my own company I'll need a really cool name. I know BIG HUGE GAMES! I'LL BE BIGGER THAN SID! SOON THE WHOLE WORLD WILL BOW TO MY GENIUS! BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. PUT MY NAME ON THE BOX! BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!"
"Brian, shoudn't you be working on the patch?"
"Er... oh, yes sorry Lord Meier."
