I think my favourite Totem of the inital four is the Bone - I just think it 
looks the coolest.

I agree...I LOVE my Bone gift too. BUT...
FYI~...did you know...(and this info. comes STRAIGHT FROM SLEAZY HIMSELF)!!

Sleazy sent me an email last night & he happened to mention that the Bone 
ones vary greatly in design, shape, & the color of the piece in the 
middle... because mine looks NOTHING like the Bone in the pic o n the TG 
site...it looks really cool & each of the 4  bone pieces have etchings 
carved in them, w/ a black piece in the middle.
Sleaz said the reason for this (with the Bone) is because they could only 
get so may bones that looked alike.)
He also said for those going to the TG gigs, they are scrambling to get 
T-shirts & posters ready for sale at the events.
I envy all you in the UK...I would LOVE to go, but I got no dough!  LOL!
