    It actually looks pretty good, I just didn't think through all the steps and created something that's impossible to finish without destroying.

    God damnit. The main event of my gift that I preordered a month ago has been delayed in its release until December 17th. I don't know what to do. To ship missing the main event or to hold off and risk it not getting there in time.

    Santee lives one state away, so shipping time should be 2 days max, but who knows when you cut it so close.

    Can you modify your order to just ship directly to your Santee and send the rest of the gift earlier when you're sure it'll get there in time?

    So I get home from work and I see a package waiting for me. I naturally got excited.

    Turns out it was my cap and gown for my graduation in two weeks.

    I guess I should be excited about that too.

    I'm here to tell you about voting. Imagine you're locked in a huge underground nightclub filled with sinners, whores, freaks and unnameable things that rape pit bulls for fun. And you ain't allowed out until you all vote on what you're going to do tonight [. . .] So you vote for television, and everyone else, as far as your eye can see, votes to fuck you with switchblades. That's voting. You're welcome.

    I haven't made a gift request post, and I know this is really late, but I might as well make the effort anyway.

    I am a PC gamer, and I like pretty much all kinds of games. I also enjoy gaming apparel and books of most kinds.

    I really enjoy science fiction but own pretty much only the works of Peter F Hamilton.

    It was my order of sculpting wax that I've been waiting for.

    Woo, I've put together the last of my santee's gift...whom now knows who I am after the first part so I can no longer partake in Secret Santa. Instead I am a part of "obviously public santa".

    I'm going to get my other half to wrap the gifts, she's better at this kind of thing than me!

    Dear Gift-receiver: I have been struck with a sudden bout of Poorness, so your gift will be later than hoped. But by the end of Dec for sure.

    Dear Gift-sender: I received your gift ages ago and have been too busy. But thank you so much, it really was awesome and thoughtful, and I'll upload some photos soon.

    Edit: :( I left one of the gifts at the office. Looks like it's not shipping out this week. Sorry Santee! Never fear. Next week. Next week, I promise.

    So apparently... I got mine today!

    My mom and brother came over so we could go out to eat. Sometime after that, I went out to check the weather to see which jacket to wear and found this on my front doorstep:

    S_100_0328.jpg

    At first, I thought it was something from my neighbor's family, since their daughter mows what passes as our lawn. Nope, there was a little note attached.

    S_100_0331.jpg

    Because the lighting in my house sucks, I'll translate:

    To: Tigress
    From: PA Secret Santa
    Merry X-Mas!

    What?! My Santa lives close enough near me to put it on my doorstep?! Since my mom and brother were ready to go eat, I put it aside and went to gorge myself on Golden Corral and see Bolt. We came home, saw my family off and came in for the unwrappings.

    S_100_0339.jpg

    It's Kuro Neko! Whoever this local mystery Santa is, s/he knows my tastes.

    S_100_0337.jpg

    A burned CD of an indie band. Haven't had a chance to listen to it, but I'm putting it in my car's CD player when I drive to work tomorrow night.

    S_100_0336.jpg

    Sweet! This book is on my wish list of books I wanted to read. I'm going to start reading it as soon as I get through my backlog of magazines.

    S_100_0335.jpg

    Again, this person knows my tastes quite well. FLCL is one of my all-time favorite anime series. So much so that I now have two copies of this manga. But I know someone that will enjoy it.

    S_100_0334.jpg

    I've never seen this movie. I've got something to watch at work tomorrow night. (10-hour shift on third and no claims to process. Yeah, gonna be a long, boring night.)

    S_100_0332.jpg

    This... looks interesting. I'll give it a read tonight while I'm waiting for Vyolynce to get off the Wii.

    So thank you very much, whoever you are! I'd really like to know who you are given that you apparently live close enough to leave it on my doorstep.

    And yes, you have to be local. No one knows how to get to my house unless they've already been here before.

Seems like if you get shot once, you're dead - no lingering deaths with your daemon huddling pitifully in your arms, just *thunk* *argh* *whoosh*. A battlefield full of the dying would just be so much more depressing when you add in wailing gerbils and dogs.

    I just finished reading it. Poor bunny! :(

    And yes, I like animals and had considered becoming a vet at one point. It did upset me a little bit. (Again, poor bunny! And poor puppy, as well.) But the comic is an intriguing concept and I enjoyed it nonetheless.

    You said it! My absolute favorite John Carpenter movie is Big Trouble in Little China, but his apocalypse trilogy is right up there (The Thing, Prince of Darkness, and In the Mouth of Madness.) The Thing's different mutating forms still freak me out to this day whenever I watch it. Oh, those poor doggies. D:
