    Dearest Santa,

    Last time we did this thing, you sent me Cthulhu. To be fair, that was awesome. Until Cthulu clawed my eyes out in my sleep.
    Spoiler:

    Very funny Santa.


    This year I'm looking for D&D Goodies! Dice, mini figurines, adventures, expansions, a DM screen, and anything you deem essential for an excellent game.

    I've been very good this year, so please do not send me anything that will sleep-murder me. Unless it is also awesome.


    Always Yours,
    ~AltDelete

    Dear Santa,

    Although I live in the godless, heathen country of China, I intend to bring the joy of commercialism here and spread the message of gift wrap and dead trees in my living room! It would be awesome if you could stop by and assist- I know you were here last year, because I heard Jingle Bells in Chinese. In July. But hey, you were there!

    I am endlessly easy to entertain, and these are just some things that would make me go squee:
    - anything My Little Pony
    - beginner set of miniatures paint
    - warm things - siberians winds reach here so scarves, hats, socks and mittens are AWESOME especially if handmade
    - Steam 'casual' style games (I have a wishlist up there) ID is chaosisorder
    - Anything dinosaur. Like really.
    - Books and comics (I read just about anything, especially dystopian, zombie and commodity books and anything recently published (all of 2011) is safe to get me since books are quite difficult to get here) and I have a sony ereader
    - Obviously I love PA and geekery, so anything from ThinkGeek or the Merch store would be awesomesauce. I'm an XL in girl babydoll shirts, L in men's.
    - anything artsy if you are an art person- while I tend not to do knick knacks, I love framing paintings or photos for the walls, or blanket/pillow type creations
    - I have a boatload of kitties if you would prefer to do a kitty gift, they would be ever so pleased to receive toys that do not contain lead :P
    - a mix cd of music you are into, new music, anything that is not a chinese remix of the Dynasty theme...please, please god, no more Crazy Frog.

    Please Santa take note that I have a few special customs considerations:

    I have sent SmallLady my address in Chinese as well as English. It would be wise to print the Chinese version out and tape it somewhere on the box (no need to try and write it anywhere.) Also, be as vague as you can about what is in the box- almost everything can fall under toys, books, clothes, etc. If you get specific, I may have to explain to the post office that I did not have explosives mailed to me.

    I CANNOT receive the following:

    - Porn
    - Religious items
    - Anything anti-communism (or pro-tibet, including most tour books unfortunately)
    - Foods (alas, no cheese mail!)

    Dearest Santa,

    Thank you for sending me all that wonderful stuff last year. I was so happy to see the many gifts from all over the tubes, though I think one of your elves may have relieved himself in the coffee mug...

    This year, I am a year older, but I am still a child inside. I am a Brony (ask the Mrs. what that means, if you don't know), and my favorite is Fluttershy, though I love me some Pinkie Pie. I also really love Angry Birds. Perturbed avians are the bomb.

    Literally.

    One of them is a bomb.

    When I am not working, I am in my room on my computer, and I have aspirations to get into video production and start making one-man a cappella covers of popular music. I already have a decent microphone, and I'm doing some price checking on cameras.

    In the coming weeks, I shall be adding onto this message some helpful links to give you an idea as to what else I like. Here is my ThinkGeek link so you can access it: https://www.thinkgeek.com/brain/gimme.cgi?wid=81e4bf8f9 Don't worry Santa, you have plenty of time to think about what you want to conjure up a wonderful surprise for me. Thanks ahead of time!

    Dear Mr Santa,

    Further to my previous correspondence on the matter of the procurement of gifts in celebration of the religious festival known as 'Christmas' 12 months ago, I wish again to request similar offerings.

    Last year I was presented with a copy of Munchkin Cthulu, and there was much rejoicing. This year my objects of desire have varied somewhat. Please see the list below for some suggestions:

    1) Unpainted miniatures for Blood Bowl, especially wizards, star players and apothecaries.
    2) a copy of We didn't play test this card game
    3) D&D miniatures and tile sets for dungeons and dragons
    4) A copy of Agricola base game
    5) a starter set for World of Warcraft or Magic the Gathering CCG
    6) core rule book for Pathfinder
    7) A copy of Dungeon Raiders card game by Adventureland
    8) Any of the first volumes of the following comics: Strontium Dog & Rogue Trooper
    9) First book in the Walking Dead graphic novel series
    10) Compartmentalised plastic containers for board game bits
    11) A bag of holding from Think Geek
    12) a copy of Destiny Quest game book by Michael J Ward

    Note that I am from the UK so sending me video games is not a good idea as they may not work. Especially if they are on the Wii.

    Many thanks for your time, I look forward to hearing from you soon!

    Love and kisses, Krop.

    Dear Santa,

    In advance, you rock. I'd enjoy any gift as it's the thought that matters, but one from a PA fan will be especially awesome, I'm sure! Regarding potential gifts for this year, here's a list of things which would be perfect:

    Mega Man 2 related awesomeness = win. I already have a Mega Man knitted hat, as well as a Mega Man 2 scarf someone knit for me with the Mega Man 2 bosses on it.

    On the classic NES topic, Legend of Zelda-related items / heirlooms / goodies are also a plus- especially as I've yet to start collecting anything of that nature (but mean to!)

    Nerf gun weaponry. Currently sporting 2 Maverick Rev-5's, a Longshot, and a Vulcan EBF-25 at my desk here at work. Can't go wrong.

    Nerdy office things that will make coworkers stop and be jealous are great; I have a coin bank with a robotic face on it that chews and swallows the coin (and looks creepy as all heck), for example.

    Anything on Think Geek, more or less, is right up my alley, as well.


    I hope that's a solid list to pick from! If not, I can gladly expand if need be. Thanks in advance, and happy holidays to all.

    Cheers,
    Art

    Dear Santa,

    I have been a precious little lad this year. I have kept my roommates happy by cleaning up after myself and occasionally cooking us dinner and made sure to not let the cute fluffy pet things in the house die.

    I am kind of hard to shop for so I'll give you some really nice examples of great gifts for me. Of course, I will surely be ecstatic with anything you choose for me.

    I am a collector of knitted hats and wear them throughout PAX. I have a Toothless hat, Jayne hat, Cookie Monster, Angry Birds one, etc. My enormous head is 24" around and from the top of my head to the middle of my ears is 7.5".

    I have been slacking on console gaming lately. I still haven't played through Batman Arkham Asylum yet, for example. I pretty much just play on the 360 and my gamertag is Waffle Slayer if you're interested in seeing what I've been playing or have played. I do some PC gaming too and my steam name is ridermiller.

    Other suggestions might be any Munchkin set other than the first one. I used to have others but don't anymore. Also any board game at all would be amazing since my roommates and I don't have one and we're just too lazy to buy one.

    Thanks Santa and I'll remember you leave out those milk and cookies you so dearly love,

    -Rider

    Rdr is pronounced Rider(Rahy-der).

    Dear Santa,


    I'm really bad at things like this.. but I really do love surprises!! so feel free to get me something that you think is super cool and would love to share. If you're still having a hard time, please know I am a devout follower of cthulhu and the old ones and I really like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It is possible that these two things are, in fact, the same. I love reading, but no e-books please, I don't have a kindle. I have a steam account which you can find under a dumb name "Chibi_Tzar".

    I do ask, that if you cannot deliver personally on christmas eve, that you use USPS or something of that sort. FedEx,DHL & UPS always manage to fuck me without the courtesy of a reach around, so if you could avoid using them I'd really appreciate it. :)

    Thanks so much Santa!

    Hi Santa!

    This was a big year for me. I took an exciting new job as a producer for a video game company, moved to San Francisco, and basically leveled up at life. I'm enjoying my new start very much, but it's also a little unsettling. I miss home. In my move I left behind a lot of stuff in storage that I really don't want to drive and get. Maybe you could help replace some of it for me? If not, there's always the frivolous and silly Christmas gift, which is always welcome.

    Stuff I enjoy:

    Minecraft
    Pinball
    Diablo III
    Cubicle/desk related stuff
    Awesome posters
    Anything by The Protomen (but not either of their albums, already own both)
    Anything by Man... or Astro-Man? (but none of their albums, already own them all)
    Scarves
    Gloves
    Sweaters
    Groupons/LivingSocials for San Francisco
    Cool t-shirts (XXL)

    Pretty much anything that's nice and with a geeky/nerdy twist. I'll probably love it.

    Thanks, Santa!

    dearest santa,
    i know you are rather busy so i will cut to the chase. my lil amazon wishlist will give you some ideas of things i like, and will be further updated in the future. any kid-related things are because i am studying to be a teacher and am a girl scout troop leader (so girl scout shop stuff is cool too). i like whedon-stuff (firefly and buffy especially), i'm just getting into dr who and love it, and am a crafter who appreciates the handmade crafts of others. i also love horror movies, so anything horror-related is good (no actual movies please, the current collection is shockingly expansive). you can get an idea of my taste in horror from my blog! i'm interested in learning d&d, but don't know anyone who plays so i'm not sure how to get started. if you are familiar with d&d and can help, please do! board and card games of all kinds are great, maybe you can recommend/send a cool one? i've got munchkin, munchkin cthulhu, catan, zombies!!!, zombie fluxx, zombie dice, and basic stuff like trivial pursuit and cranium. i'm most especially interested in things that are handmade, second-hand, or from small independent businesses (this includes supporting your local comic/game store). thanks in advance, santa!

    p.s. i take a ladies XL and a mens M in tshirts!

    Dear Santa,
    I am one of those people who are difficult to buy for because I have a wide variety of interests. I play Magic The Gathering and will gladly take any packs or singles from that; I love Nintendo and collect anything relating to them especially Mario, Zelda, DK and Metroid (I have little interest in Pokemon); I enjoy DC and Marvel superheroes, Batman, Spider-Man etc; I love Looney Tunes, I am a huge Star Wars fan and collect anything possible from it, I am a sucker for shirts.woot.com shirts (size XL) and one of my goals in life is to finally snag a BOC from them, I enjoy Harry Potter and most 80's movies. I love broadway showtunes and listen to Weird Al, Protomen, MC Frontalot, Paul and Storm and groups like that. For any other ideas feel free to check my Amazon Wishlist: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/127PE6K0D9A5W

    Dear Santa,

    Here is some basic information about me:
    I enjoy many geeky interests. Superheroes, Harry Potter, science, reading, trivia. I enjoy RPGs both pen and paper as well as the video game type - Fable, Elder Scrolls and most of the Final Fantasy series. TV shows like LOST and Doctor Who. Other video game types I enjoy: Puzzles and Strategy. Pokemon too. Honestly, I'm not hard to please.
    I own an XBox 360, a Wii and a 3DS.
    Shirt size: Large
    Candy! If you are looking for a flavor I like, I like candy flavor. Sugar, salt, bacon, nuts. But not aparagus.

    Dear Santa,
    Its been a busy year... I've taken on a new role at work, run three marathons, helped bake cookies for the cookie brigade, gone to two PAXes, DM'd my first campaign since I was in middle school, and returned to the madness that is PC gaming.

    Here are some things that I like:
    - Geeky Stuff: Dr Who, BSG, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Anime
    - Webcomics: Penny Arcade (of course), Hijinks Ensue (which my gf tends to misread as Hijink Sensei... which could also be a good name for a webcomic), Chainsawsuit, XKCD, and Girl Genius
    - Gaming: Board games, Card games (maybe some awesome Munchkin or Fluxx variation?), video games (maybe a cool indie game on steam?)
    - TTRPGS: D&D, Savage Worlds, Pathfinder (awesome ideas include adventure modules, mini's, really cool dice)
    - Running
    - Soccer (aka Football, which is a name that does make sense... you use your feet and there is a ball involved)
    - Cool stuff from ThinkGeek (Shirt size: XL)
    - Cooking

    Thank you Santa!

    AWWW SHIT THE BADGER IS BACK!!!!!!

    Dear Santy Claws,

    I'm a badger. I do normal badgery things like playing D&D with Vole and Squirrel at the pub, although I'm always need of more minis since the mean Terapin brothers keep taking mine! Often I spend my weekends cooking and baking for the Kitten family who live downstairs. Badgers love big books with lots of information/techniques for cooking (but I already has Le Cordon Bleu techniques!), and of course kitchen gadgetry.

    Like most badgers, I wear a size medium shirt, and am sadly a bit short of geeky attire. Those t-shirts never last long when I'm tunneling!

    I have a TV and DVD player, but I don't have a video game system (because I am saving up my badgery money at the moment), so don't send me any games (because then I would be a sad badger).

    Thank you Santy Claws!

    Dear Divine Emperor who Guides all Mankind from upon the Golden Throne:
    I've been a good Junior Grade Commissar this year and have served the Imperium faithfully in your glorious name. For Emperor's Day this year I was hoping you could find a moment in your busy day guiding the Astronomicon and the fate of humanity to bestow upon me, your humble servant, these boons:

    I could use a new stack of trainer butterfly knives due to the ones available in the local markets being cheap in both senses of the word (turns out zinc oxide handles tend to shatter in a hurry when dropped on a steel deck).

    I'm really into WW2 era Russian stuff and would love a commissar/officer's cap (if you can't find a spare in the Schola Progenium, I'm sure you could have a servitor find one on ebay for cheap) or something else of that nature.

    Survivalish/STALKER related sorta stuff is always awesome (Cheaper Than Dirt and The STALKER Shop have lotsa goodies. Interestingly Think Geek has some stuff in this department too).

    While I do love video games, I'm kinda fickle on what I buy so if you do wanna go that route, a gift card to Amazon or an XBL point card would work far better than a specific game.

    Finally, if you want contribute to the production of a Mark 2 buster cannon for my costume for PAX festivities next year, then a Nerf Barricade and/or Nerf Recon would most welcome.

    Thank you for anything you choose to send my way for even your divine blessing so that I might triumph over the heretic, the unclean, and the mutant.

    Thought of the day: Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    Dear Sentient Festivus Pole,

    Last year I received a collection of the most wonderful books on trickery and distilled spirits and wisdom from the old men at the bar; and for this, I am thoroughly grateful.

    I'm not gonna lie festivus pole, I've had a pretty rough year. Beer and media of any kind seem to be my only friends. Incidentally, I happened to have a large selection of beer and media related gift-type products and other objects of varying desire assembled on this conveniently linked list.

    Isn't technology amazing? I think it is. I am constantly adding to this list (I blame my suddenly desperate need to live "the good life") so you would be well advised to keep apprised of it.

    Of course, should you choose to forgo the list (entirely your decision), my interests include beer, jazz, cigars, wrestling, Tokusatsu (Kamen Rider, Super Sentai), snazzy clothes (mens large for shirts), entertaining, cooking, fighting for honor and glory, overthrowing the British Royal crown, and Et cetera, Et cetera.

    God Speed to you oh mighty and powerful Festivus Pole, and many great thanks in advance.

    Dear Santa,
    It's been a busy year for me, but of course I had to make time to write you a letter. Not a whole lot has changed about me since the last time I wrote. I still enjoy Doctor Who, Games (Video, Card, Board), and other general geeky things. I am extremely proud of going to Northeastern University. I love it here, and I truely think coming here was one of the best choices I have ever made in my life. That being said, I always enjoy anything Northeastern related. Another side effect of moving from California to Boston, is that I have discovered my interest for Hockey (Both at the college and professional level). I am, however, ashamed to admit that I have only been to college games and haven't yet been to a Bruins game. I also don't even own any Bruins apparel. Anyways, I hope this gives you a general idea of my interests. I will also include some basic information below to help you further.

    Dear Santa,

    I like books, comics and graphic novels, though I tend to like ones that are either intellectual (Sandman, If On A Winter's Night A Traveler) or funny in a deconstructive way (She Hulk, HGttG). Used is cool.

    I have a lot of T-shirts, but they're an option if they're ladies' shirts (ladies XL). Standard T-shirts in blue, green, or purple are also an option (Men's S or M, depending on how they run) if the design is exceptionally awesome.

    I love RPGs and RPG accessories. Dice, books, minis, maps, whatever.

    I like My Little Pony, Mass Effect (Femshep and gender neutral stuff only), and Steampunk.

    I'll try to put together an actual wish list later.

As far as my interests go I am a big PC gamer and overall lover of all things gaming. I am also interested in Card/Board Games (Munchkin, I have Axe Cop and Zombie 1&2) I am also a pretty big fan of anime and a HUGE Trance / Electronic music junkie.

    Dear Santa,

    Even though my Christmas wishlist this year originally only had one thing on it (a PAX East pass) and as of an hour ago, I already have that thing... I will attempt to make other requests, so that I do not receive a sock full of poop (though, the delivery man's reaction to the smelly parcel may well be worth it.) I own an xbox 360, and a Wii, and I also love PC gaming, especially WOW. I'm making it my mission to also have a DS by the time PAX rolls around. I love RPGs and I also love lolcats, as absurd as those little grammar-haters are. I just got married in August to my favorite co-op buddy. He proposed in WoW, on Guy Fawkes day. If you need extra help stalking, because my facebook is super private, check out gamercouple.com. My hubby and I write stuff on there because we have crazy delusions that we're cool. Outside of gaming I LOVE Doctor Who. If I were given one limitless wish, it would be to be the Doctor's companion (provided that the wish could make him nonfictional.) I'm also a huge St. Louis (not Arizona) Cardinals fan. When they won the World Series, I was so excited and happy that I was crying (along with several other people in the bar.) <-that said, I enjoy drinking. I completed every badge of the pokecrawl last year, including the mew challenge. I think that holds the record for the most I've had in one night. I own a ton of stuff from Thinkgeek, so... if you shop there, there's a good chance I already have what you're looking at (especially if it's Doctor Who related.) Hope that's an adequate amount of info. Can't wait for PAX!!

    To sum-up:
    PAX, video games, Doctor Who, Cardinals, Drinky-drink

    Edit:
    Xbox live handle: So Cynthetic
    other handles: Cynthetic, Cynthianna (they're both pretty popular though, so can't guarantee it's me on any particular site.)

    Dear Santa,

    Shit, is it already that time of year? It's been way too busy for me. Thank god I'm done with grad school, never again.

    What to get me? Well, I'm a board game whore, but I'm still working on my collection. I'll be having a big list of board games on my amazon list, as well as books and other stuff. Please, no video games or computer games, I have a huge backlog and I don't even play a lot anymore.

    A note on my book list. I work in the Mental Health Field, and have a lot of research interest in trauma-related fields. My last Santa felt weird buying me what appeared as self-help books (which, is understandable). Really though, it's cool. I'm not that fucked up.

    T-shirt wise, I'm an XL. I also love Dr. Who. And food. Man do I love my food.

    I realize you have a ton of great kids that you are getting ready to get gifts for and I'm not sure what your assessment of my behavior over the last year has been but I like to stay ever the optimist so I figure I'll pass along some things I'd like in hopes of maybe getting lucky.

    One thing that has been a recent event is that I've lost some weight over the last few months and thusly my cool shirts no longer fit as well as before, so I wouldn't mind getting a few new ones. I'm a big fan of the shirts on Threadless (If On A Winter's Night Young Lovers..., Bad Memories, Lion Fumes, Chaos Infected, and Muppetational Mosaic are all awesome examples of the shirt styles I like but feel free to surprise me with any others that you think I might like based on those). I currently am down to a Large shirt size, particularly since Threadless usually has a slim fit for their shirts.

    If you would like to get me something else besides clothing, I've got some ideas for stuff on a Think Geek Wish List (http://www.thinkgeek.com/brain/gimme.cgi?wid=81ed31d57&icpg=wishlist). Feel free to check it out.

    Also, I do shop regularly on Amazon so if you want to just get me a gift card for that, I would definitely end up using that.

    Lastly, if nothing here seems like something you'd want to get or you have another idea but not sure if it's something I'd like, feel free to contact Jonny Nero and ask him. He has known me for years and would definitely be able to help you out.

    Anyway, thanks for reading my letter, best wishes and I appreciate all the great joy you spread.

    Merry Christmas,
    Anthony Chapman

    Dear Santaman,

    This year, I kicked zero puppies, slammed no doors on girl scouts, flipped off no boxes of kittens, and only punched one baby in anger. In my defense, the baby was being kind of a dick. I have also really cut down on copying my posts from last year. Despite all this, I still had a pretty rad year.

    Once again this year, I want to make everyone else feel like sad pandas by asking only for a donation to Child's Play. That is, however, unless I get juju again this year. Here is her super sekrit santa list:
    Sincerly,

    peet

    Dear Reindeer Slave-driver

    I've had a pretty decent year. I like things related to video games. I'm not picky.
    I like hoodies size L-XL. Shirts XL-2X because they just never fit me right. Whatever :P
    I like stuff from ThinkGeek
    I like Star Wars, Adventure Time, Regular Show, internet-type things, tabletop gaming,WoW, Final Fantasy and Zelda are top tier gear I would love to receive. Although if you want to throw some random shit that I might like, go for it. Humor me :3

    What can i say. I am a bit of an eccentric guy, of late been thinking about getting into comics not the standard batman comics. I really am a big fan of Hunter Thompson, Dali, Voltaire, Alan Moore, christopher hitchens and tom waits, i love anything to do with the ocean, sea life is so tasty and interesting. Not sure what else i can expound upon i have steam but honestly i have so many games it really does not need anymore.

    Dear Santa,

    I've been far too good this year. So good that I'm just bored, bored, BORED. Please bring me something to spice up my life!

    I have more than enough games for my 360 and PS3. I only have one game for my Wii that's not an exercise game, though (Monster Hunter Tri). I also have a DS Lite. I like adventure, RPG and puzzle games.

    I like crafts such as origami, knitting and cross-stitching. Any papercrafts, really.

    I've been getting into music quite a bit lately. Just bought a digital piano so any good music scores would be great! Also going to pick up guitar again soon. There are a few books on my Amazon wish list related to this.

    Favorite band right now is the Protomen. I've also been getting into I Fight Dragons, the Bastion soundtrack (but who hasn't?), They Might Be Giants, such like that.

    Amazon Wish List: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/2MHSAVFA11DYN/ref=cm_sw_em_r_ws_4cLVob07QHEDM_wb
    Thinkgeek Wish List: http://www.thinkgeek.com/brain/gimme.cgi?wid=81cf680b2&icpg=wishlist

    I like science fiction and and fantasy books and movies.
    Favorite authors: Neil Gaiman, Lois McMaster Bujold, Laurie R. King
    A Kazu Kibuishi graphic book would be awesome! I have them on my Amazon Wish List.

    Some basic random things that I like:
    Doctor Who (Tom Baker, David Tennant). Art Deco, including old science fiction illustrations. Myst games. Japanese RPGs. Hayao Miyazaki; Studio Ghibli. Pixar movies.

    I hope this gives you some ideas of what I like.

    Sincerely,

    Mystral721 (aka Luneowl)

    Dear Santa,

    Dear Santa:

    I have been a god amongst ants this year. I would enjoy anything from thinkgeek more than likely... so long as it isn't from Doctor Who. I really don't know anything about that show. SORRY! But gaming stuff? You betcha! Labyinth Worm plush doll would be awesome. That's from think geek. LED Jellfish lamp is also awesome. But yeah... besides that, my favorite games of all time are Shadow Hearts: Covenant, Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, and Deus Ex: HR was pretty awesome. Although I didn't play the first two. Hope they make a remix of the first two, because quite frankly, I can't stand playing old games for the most part now. Unless they're nostalgic 8-bit games.

    Anyhoo, thanks in advance for being a straight up pimp MOFO. I love your balls.

    Sincerely,

    Dimmy

    Dear Santa,

    Well hello again. I guess this is some sort of yearly pastime that has become an annual tradition. I have to say you did well last year. I enjoyed the rare and coveted Valve merch that arrived at my door. Sadly it also arrived with a lump of coal in the form of a brokeRAGE charge from the UPS grinch. We'll address that later though.

    Thanks to my visits to PAX and the generous gift you sent last year, I have managed to nuzzle at the teat of the wondrous treats found across the border. I WANT MORE. I'm not giving up any of that wonderful Canadianess, whatever that is. I just want to have the best of both worlds. You managed to provide that in some drug dealer like analogy. With that said, let's get down to brass tacks.

    My tastes haven't changed much since last year. Sadly I've acquired the games that I wish to own. Steam is very good at making sure of that. If you can get some of that Christmas magic to work towards getting me a Tribes: Ascend beta that would be amazing. Otherwise I think I have one game on my Amazon.ca wish list. Actually if you take a look at that list, you'll note I'm a bit of a pop culture whore. Books with little tid bits of info and interesting TV shows are what I love. Music is also in there. I've also got a huge list over at Thinkgeek, though TG merch is a little more problematic to get across the border.

    Hopefully that covers everything. I shall be providing further info on penetrating our borders and delivering these wonderful gifts without incurring the wrath of UPS. Until then...

    Stuck between two worlds,
    Decius

    Dear Santa,
    I've been a good, if very lurky geek mom this year. Sadly, my geek offspring have been getting more nerdy bling than me. For some weird ass reason people think that sneaking up on 40 means yer old and shit. Da hell? You could fix this, Oh Patriarch of the North, by sending along some supplies for my more esoteric geekitude- like blank journals, so I can pretend I'm buddies with Atrus, or things with labyrinths on them (but not Bowie- t'other labyrinth), or that thing that I have asked for for the last 3 Christmases and no one, not even you, has deigned to procure for me- The pen and ink set. I'm not even asking for the fancy one in the wood box this year. http://www.shakespearesden.com/pen-and-nib-set.html

    And yes, I will leave out extra rosettes for you this year- I know Prancer keeps ganking them when you're not looking. The way you all go through them, I'll need to make 5 or 6 dozen this year o.O

    Dear Santa,

    I have tried to be good this year, and we all know I failed. :P
    but if you feel I deserve a gift, I like all kinds of weird and obscure gadgets. if you feel like I need a new shirt, I wear a medium and my pants are a 30X32 shoes are a 10 1/2.
    and if you feel like sending me and NSFW thing I would lol really hard.

    Love and jingle MY bells,
    Catboy. =3

    Dear Santa,

    I am a huge geek. I am also a girl. This makes me special (according to my boyfriend at least). And apparently it gets me +5 on the geek test. I'll take what I can get.

    This geek girl loves Star Trek. I started watching it when I was 9 years old when TNG premiered on tv. I've been hooked on it ever since. Even my license plate number is Star Trek related. Needless to say, anything ST is a-ok with me.

    I'm also a huge photog. I love photography (& my Nikon). I have some neat gadgets (like the bokeh kit) & spend hours on photojojo.

    There's also a domestic/girly side to me. I love to cook/bake. I've fallen in love w/ some of the neat cooking stuff on thinkgeek (Portal!!!). I love anything plush! I bought the companion cube plushie at PAX this year. I think it's lonely for some turrets. :)

    Thanks for listening, Santa!

    Merry Christmas!!

    Dear Lord Santa, Master of the Frozen North

    Your dark servant, Yoshamano, requests your time to discuss our progress in turning Michigan into Hell on Earth. Your dark servant is pleased to report that this land continues its downward slide into madness. The ritual known as "gun season" has begun, bringing all production in the state to a grinding halt. Savages roam the lands in search of deer to harvest for their delicious meat while drinking large quantities of alcohol. Its a glorious sight, master, I wish you were here to see it.

    With the winter approaching fast we make arrangements to return to the motherland for the sharing of gifts inside the hollowed halls of Mt. Dongpocolypse. I have prepared a list of things most appreciated at http://amzn.com/w/3IS63VB1ODBQS I also have a Steam wishlist tucked away under [PAX]Yoshamano.

    Well wishes to you and your army of slave elves. Your dark servant, Yoshamano.
