    It kills me that the two deadbeat Santas that got awesome gifts decided to come in here and share them anyways, act all normal, etc. So odd.

    Anyways, Basticle was my Santa, and I just want to publicly thank him again because he got me the book Day by Day Armageddon and I'm halfway through it and it is fantastic.

    It's written in the format of a daily journal by a Navy recruit as he struggles to survive a worldwide zombie outbreak.

    I've read it. It's awesome. Dude on the forums said his buddy wrote it when I started talking about it in a zombie thread. I don't remember his name. So these sentences are meaningless.

    We sell fights and get into products.

    Captain Charisma, K7 Avenger, McPhorks5, and Ravincrisis all had a week to get back to me by PM on the subject of their deadbeatedness, and did not. They have been banned.

    Kinda like that.

    People tend to skim things and with "Captain" and a capital K near enough to each other, misunderstandings are bound to happen

    You know, if their names were to leak, one could call these people with the recent cellphone directories being published and all.

    Figuratively speaking.

    I'm pleased to see the deadbeats got banned.

    And posting multiple times about your cool swag, and still being a deadbeat like the one guy? What a dick thing to do.

    How does the Easter Bunny thing usually work? Are just a few people chosen and they e-stalk and do the Santa thing again, or is it a group effort thing?

    Feed us precious precious information Doc!

    If Doc follows my advice, he'll just draw random surrogate Santas from the pool of volunteers and then everything's taken care of.


    This thread needs to be closed pretty soon so I'm hoping he lets me know that he's got it worked out. We can do another brief thread once everybody's been taken care of.

    Who's still waiting? I know there were a couple where the Santas said the gifts were mailed but were not received yet.

    I just received confirmation from the other outlying gifts, and I think everything is on track now.

    Yes I will be following Captain K's advice. I need to sift through the last dozen or so pages of the thread and take note of the recent people who have volunteered for the Easter Bunny position. They'll be hearing from me tonight.

    Also a staggering 70 or so of you marked you would be an Easter Bunny, so I may be contacting some of you as well, I'm not sure.

    Either way, it all goes down tonight.

    Can we change the thread title before this gets closed so that next year's Santas don't look at it and think there were a ton of deadbeats?

    Doc posted a wee bit up that they had 51 Bunny's volunteer for 4 people, so a lot of people who offered weren't called into service.

    Doc still maintains that he might call on you many times for a favor, he might call on you once, or never. But you must always be ready.

    How does he know who you are? How does he know where to find you?

    The shadow knows.

    It's true, I do.

    I am vigilant.

    Also PepperSinclaire hasn't responded to my PMs so I can only assume he's not up for the task. I'll give him one more day before I give his Orphan to someone else.

    Hello. This is Doc Holliday.

    Remember when you agreed to be an Easter Bunny for the G&T Secret Santa? Yes? Well.. I'm calling in that favour...


    Chances are that one day you'll have to help him move....

    Man, deadbeat bunnies. Crazy world.

    I am still checking my mailbox and porch each day, hoping to someday find a package. Though I also kinda hope that it's my bunny that Doc is having trouble getting because I would feel bad if it was Prime's or someone else's.

    Oh its yours. Every time someone gets your name they're like "oh... uh... nevermind. I suddenly ran out of money or something".

    Just kidding, of course.

    Or am I?

    Well, they aren't exactly "deadbeats" in that they promised to send something but never did. They simply aren't responding to PMs or had to back out. Not entirely evil.

    Sorry guys, it's almost March! I gotta close this thread.

    Once we start seeing people receive backup gifts we can start another thread, but sadly, the time for a sticky is done.



    I'm going to put this in the archives. Easily the best G&T Secret Santa ever. Great job everybody.
