    Santee, why haven't you posted? Did you not like what I sent you? Did you die of shock it was so bad? Are you already dead and buried, mouldering away?

    I just got it today! I am moving this week so I wasnt at the address that it got delivered to until after work today. I wrote up a reply and posted pictures. I very well could have died from shock. I was borderline shaking with a shit eating grin on my face that I still cant wipe off lol.

    See my post for a write up but again thank you so much. I cant possibly thank you enough!
    Really happy that you're happy with it! Sorry for destroying your disposable income ;)

    I will just have to find a way to live with it :P

    I have the best Santa.

    My gift

    It's like he looked into my brain (or Amazon Wishlist) and bought me exactly what I wanted!

    <3 to my Santa, and my Santee has received his gift.

    The circle is complete.

    Wewt! That got there much quicker than I expected! I never got an estimated arrival date and there was just the one shipping option and it was pretty inexpensive... I was kind of worried that it was "Ship-By-Goat" and you'd get it sometime around SC3 came out.

    Still! Happy you got it, and Merry Christmas!

    That's pretty bitchin'. Is it just a trick of the light or does the case actualy have two halves that slide open/closed like some kind of sci-fi door?

    I have Half Life 2, and I've never been terrible interested in Dogfighter, but thank-you for the offer.

    I was going to say we should play a few games of SC2 together, but I'm pretty sure we're SOL in that respect - I think servers are still region-locked. However, apparently, they are "working on that", so when they fix that, I demand a fight!

    (I haven't played MP since beta, you are going to STOMP me.)

    And Szechuan, the box actual does have two halves with a cool sci-fi tooth-door effect yes, it is a bitchin' box. I normally throw game boxen away, but I'm keeping my copy of this collector's edition.

    One last last for reals last note to Santa, since I'm sure he's noticed I pretty much only post in the TF2 thread:

    I have literally no TF2 merch. At all. So if you were worried about me having something, don't.

    Dear Santee,

    Is your hand feeling tingly?

    It is!? That's because you just got given an awesome internet hi5.

    Your present is winging it's way to you as we speak.

    I feel bad that it lacks too much of a personal touch but I am snowed under at work and with university assignments. I'm sure that when you see what I've got you that you will be able to find it in your heart to forgive me.

    As an extra hint and as I like to stir the pot, you should know that you have already received a gift from me and that this is a big fat juicy cherry topping.

    Oh and happy thanksgiving you crazy Americans.

    Hugs and kisses

    Santa

    Dear Santee - I have also sent some Christmas joy your way. I hope it arrives before Christmas, I was quoted up to 21 days!

    I also feel guilty about the lack of a personal touch but I'm sure you will forgive me as well. Just know that you were stalked and ideas were thrown around and I went for the lazy but extravagant option.

    Much Love

    Anything from the Kinder line would be the same, I think. Like the Bueno stuff.

    I gave ketchup chips at one point too, but I think nowadays that isn't so weird down there. I remember when Americans were all, "GRAPE SODA?!?!"

    Now, it's like a staple.

    Also, my Santee added some games onto his/her Steam wishlist recently. I'm assuming it's for the contest. I will have you know, I got you this game way before you added it! So there!

    Yes, kind of. They're just candy coated chocolate, but M&Ms are more plump. I like the latter better, to be honest. I find the all around quality of the candy/chocolate in Smarties to be lacking.

    I still threw a couple boxes in your package, Santee. HA!

    Canadian Smarties don't taste like chocolate, they taste like generic candy shell. M&Ms are definitely better.

    And M&Ms come in a variety of fillings; however, I've heard the new pretzel ones taste like sawdust.

    On another note, FUCK ME IN THE GOAT ASS!

    I just wrapped three of the gifts for my Santee and then realized that I forgot to include the tiny note card explaining the thought process behind the gift.

    Damnit. Santee, if some of your gifts appear to be opened and then re-wrapped, it's because they were.
