    Thank you SOOOOOO Much VT! I really appreciate you going to all the trouble. As far as the old situation goes, they are having a bit of a scuff with the authorities at the moment for unrelated reasons so all in all I'd say all is well = P

    No worries, I'm just glad you ended up getting it! =)

    Ah! Sounds like karma bit them in the butt at least. =) I'm usually not vindictive, but passive aggressive ex-roommates willing to steal are frustrating!

    Rdr, glad you like your gifts. I was really excited to get them for you. Particularly now that you can bust out kick ass chopsticks when you get sushi. We should try to get sushi at PAX Prime and you can show me what they look like first hand.

    Sounds like a plan! I'll pm you for contact info closer to PAX. I'm still new to sushi so if you're experienced you can help give me a kick in the arse to try new things. Don't think my friends have what it takes to convince me to try new stuff.

    Glad you liked them! :) Did you get a chance to watch the festival of weirdshit that is Neverwhere?

    so the other day i got home after a long day at school and i to my surprise i found this!

    secretsanta6.jpg

    upon further inspection it seemed some one was warning me of the zombie apocalypse.

    secretsanta5.jpg

    once i opened it i was ecstatic to find

    secretsanta4.jpg

    A zombie apocalypse care package!

    A hand written note

    secretsanta3.jpg

    PEELS HERE!

    secretsanta2.jpg

    I also got candy canes and a t-shirt!

    secretsanta1.jpg

    The t-shirt also had the health kit mounted on the back so I could go on the run when the time comes and our defenses get over run and keep the care package with me.

    So I came home earlier today and noticed a strange box sitting in my garage... with the address to me... TWICE! So I took it in and pondered, my other order was shipped out 2 days ago, are they really close???

    As I ventured to my room I began to tear the package open, only to see that the return address was from California. It struck me as I began to fold over the flaps of the brown casing, it was from the internet!!! Several minutes later I log onto my computer, finding two urgent spam messages in my Private Messages of this forum, and in my mIRC... both from SmallLady. I fear that if I keep typing the story, that SmallLady will get closer and closer to stabbing me, brutally, in the back with a rusty knife.

    So I opened the box in my eWorld, for I needed to document what came in, else my jaw will be shut from Tetanus.
    Spoiler:

    I noticed the famous Alliance emblem and it's.. ANOTHER SWAG BAG =(
    Spoiler:

    NOOOOPPEEE!!! Look at this cutie inside!
    Spoiler:

    Out of his home...
    Spoiler:

    On my head =D, thanks! wait... who sent me this??? *Error 404.33, no sender or note found*

    I'm glad you liked it Eugal. I got SO MANY weird looks from the postal people while attempting to mail it! Especially once I explained it was a zombie health kit. I ended up going to a different postoffice and using the automated kiosk to stamp and mail it =)

    Refuse and I will make sure that all Bacon exports are stopped at the border before they cross over from Canada to the US.

    Your baconators will never taste the same and everyone will know it's SmallLady's fault.

    edit: Just saw that she's from Canada too but think this threat still works.

    Maybe there was more to it? Did you check the bottom of the package/box? Or maybe it's a smallpresent for SmallLady :P. I'd offer to send something, but shipping from US to Canada can be brutal, stupid customs department...

    Yes it was the only thing on the box and the invoice. But it's ok, I really appreciate you guys jumping in to be awesome. <3

    I'll keep you all in mind if we get any dead beat Santas. Though I'm fairly positive that everyone will get something by the deadline. :-)

    I think a single pack of spider stickers should constitute "dead beat" status. Who did that? They need to 'fess up, seriously!

    Unless there was some kind of justification? Had the person become recently unemployed?

    I think she knows who did it and doesn't want to throw him/her under the bus. There's also 7 days to see if the santa actually sent another package just to troll with us/SmallLady.

    So last Friday I got this tweet from our lovely Sekrit Santa, but this morning when I called in to the post office to check if there was a package they said there wasn't anything there :(. There's also no notification in my mailbox either.

    I've just arrived back because my return was postponed by a week - I don't have a box here but I do have two failed delivery notices (one from 12/31, one from 1/6) so hopefully I will be able to get to the post office on Wednesday and it will be one of those.

    I just came back and 1 a FedEx sticker on my door saying they made a 1st attempt. It's obviously from the exchange since the delivery name was to "Fryers" which I guess was an honest mistake. That's what you get for having a 100% fictional name, no one can remember it correctly. I'm lucky enough that it was not sent to "Fungus" which is the usual mistake people make.

    Bla bla bla.

    I'll need a bit of (reasonable) time to pick this package up and post some pictures. That's because FedEx works a bit differently in Canada (around these parts they only have one Depot and it's not even that close to Montreal). I'll check with the office to see if they don't mind having someone deliver me something over there. If that works I should have it before the end of the week.

    Lady please note that whoever my Santee is made the effort to have it delivered on time!

    And thanks, whoever you are :)

    Edit: Instructed FedEx to hold off the package until we come and get it ourselves. Arranged a little road trip for after work today, should be posting pictures in the evening.

    There was no note in my package, but the return address says it's from Kate and Andy in Michigan. (MI is Michigan, right? Sometimes I get the M states confused.)

    So after lots of snow postponements I finally got my secret santa gift! Just to be clear I am totally the deadbeat here D: crackgoblin mailed it two days after Christmas and sent it priority. Sorry I wasn't around to pick it up! BECAUSE IT IS AWESOME

    Obligatory pet-with-box photo:

    Crackgoblin apparently went to the USE LOTS OF TAPE school of packaging but after I finally managed to slice through the roll of tape I found:
    Spoiler:

    I opened the card first and it was totally a present spoiler :O
    Spoiler:

    PLATYPUS IN THE HIZZOUSE
    Spoiler:

    These were meant to be included but the post office is staffed by Satan, so I got a photo instead. Here is hoping the Devil eases up his grip because Robot cupcakes are awesome.
    Spoiler:

    Fake Pandas Have More Fun :D
    Spoiler:

    OK so time for a moral to this story, which is don't buy yourself shit near the holidays. Don't do it. Because then what happens is you talk A LOT about how you want something and amazon pretends you didn't get it and then you buy it for yourself and then you get your secret santa present and then, well
    Spoiler:

    Fortunately this just makes it EVEN AWESOMER because now I have two talking Perry the Platypus plushies, which is just another step towards my goal of being that person with a giant pile of creepy staring platypuses on my desk.

    Thanks crackgoblin and I am so so sorry that I wasn't home on time to get this!
