    We all seem to be overlooking the fact that her Santa was physically at her house!

    I'm fairly sure the original sign up rules included a clause against genuine stalking!

    It's only stalking if he watched from the bushes as she scooped up the gift. Then masturbated.

    It's not like the Santas don't get given addresses right then and there. There's no actual stalking involved at that point.

    According to tracking, my Santee's gift is now in their country, and working it's way to them.
    They should receive it next week sometime...hopefully.:):^:

    No creeping in the bushes involved.

    Wow, a physical, personal delivery of gifts is a PA SS first! Even if a very few people live close enough to each other for such, that they'll be paired up by random chance is pretty dang unlikely. Neat, and/or creepy!

    I'd love to hear things from the Santa's point of view. Does he/she actually live near her? Or stopping by on the way somewhere else? Do they know each other? Etc., etc., etc. Intriguing!

    Being that he didn't stick around to introduce himself as her Santa, I'm leaning more towards creepy.

    BTW, just a small warning to my PA Secret Santa, if I find you lurking in my bushes, peeping in my windows, be prepared to feel the wrath of my vicious, bloodthirsty guard dog.

    Am I the only person thinking, just wanted to save on postage costs. Besides, it was a fine selection and people with good tastes can't be creepy.

    Everyone likes babies. And kittens. I would not, however, recommend leaving a baby and a kitten in the same package on someone's doorstep for more than a day or two.

    Kittens get hungry.

    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.

    Wooo, Santee's gift is finally wrapped and parcelled up, I'm off to the Post Office tomorrow morning to send it - its in 2 boxes, so wait til you have both, then open the square one last! I've also finished World of Goo (the 2 events are slightly linked - World of Goo kept calling me when I should have been wrapping and glueing.
    I'm sorry, Santee, I promise to never attempt a model ever again, I'll stick to painting.

    Delicious beer.

    Thanks again silverwind, I drank all the beer already and it was pretty tasty.

    Edit: I was mistaken, I hadn't drank the green apple beer until just now and I'd like to make clear that the rest of the beer was just damned excellent but there should never ever, ever, really never, be fruit beer.

    Also, nice beer haul. Also Also, fear not Santee, item one of your gift has arrived and once the other items arrive, all that's left is to pack some other minor goodies and ship it to you post-haste!

    That implies that I have bushes to hide behind. D:

    On the subject of death and daemons disappearing: arrows sure are effective in Lyra's universe. 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'm leaning more towards that the person is local, because no one has yet been able to successfully find my house without calling the house at least once for assistance. So the person either lives here, knows the area VERY well, or has phenomenal GPS.

    And the Santa is probably a chick. I don't know any guys that dot their I's with a circle or writes that neatly.

    I have exceptional hand-writing, and if I were to intentionally write neatly, you'd have a hard time telling it apart from a printed font.

    The lady friend commented on the rather nice fabric and promises to use it for some craft something or other, so it's really a gift unto itself.

    So, Santee, I went to post your gift - part 1 was no problem, it weighs under 500g, and so cost £6. Part 2 weighed 2.1kg, and would have cost £40 to send. The lovely woman at the Post Office suggested I take it home, take out 100g of stuff, re-wrap it, and it will only cost £20 to post. Hmm, do I eat the chocolate, or package it up separately ... decisions, decisions. This means you will have 2 (at least) different parcels, but the good thing is that they will arrive in the order I wanted you to open them, as I won't get back to the Post Office until Monday. (munching chocolate as I type!)
