    Gonna be sending out my santee's gift later this week, heading to lovely Canada.

    Anything I should do when posting apart from marking as a gift?

    Beer!
    I wish Robert Simpson beer was really awesome, because it's pretty much the only thing my hometown actually contributes to the world.

    My Santee's stuff is all en route to its destination, and should be arriving early next week. Amusingly, now that I have it all taken care of, a part of my mind is thinking "Well, that was a fun Secret Santa, I should do it again next year!" I feel like it's over now, and I have to keep reminding myself "Wait, I'm going to be getting a gift, and it will probably be really neat."

    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.

    Santee, your package is 30 miles outside of your city. As you mentioned, It will take a couple of days to be processed and sent to your Dorm.

    Provided your address you sent me is correct. Google Maps doesn't seem to like it.

    Claim the contents of the package are worth under $40 so they don't have to pay any dumb taxes. I claimed mine as a whopping $18.

    Dear Santee,

    Your present seems to be moving at lightning fast speed, as I mailed it a day or two ago and it is already across the border. INCOMING FUN!

    love,

    Santa

    I finished filming a video for my santee today (non erotic, unless you get off on comedy) and bought their final present.
    Alls I have to do now is edit it, make a card and send all the stuff off.
    I hope my santee appreciates my humor.

    Damn guys. Not one gift that hasn't been made of pure weapons grade Awesomium.

    I had a hard time reading this word. I was like, "Grade A....some. Damn it." I speak [strike]good[/strike] well.

    Also, nice job with that packing. Looks like nothing was broken.

    I'd pronounce it "Ah-SOH-mee-um" or "Ah-suh-MEE-um".

    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!

    It is a pretend word, I wouldn't sweat it.

    I'm 42% Awesomium

    /sigh.

    This will be my 2nd year of lurking the Secret Santa thread and wishing I had the financial balls to take part.

    Next year, I will be a Santa consisting of at least 5/8ths Awesomium.

    Here. Yeah, my gift was somewhat lacking because I couldn't get all stuff I wanted. At least I guess it is somewhat more inspired than than my idea before this one (whole lotta comics). But my original plan was to get complete discography (and some autographs) of certain band you listen according to your LiveJournal.

    Just got a message by proxy from my SS letting me know he hadn't forgotten about me. S/he's going through finals, which I completely understand, as I'm just about to go through those myself. So no worries Secret Santa, good luck!

    oh, FYI to all santees who haven't received a gift, my stuff was sent out late last week. All of it should arrive by the end of the week.

    although, i guess I should say every santee except me, since I didn't get myself as a santee, and am still waiting patiently for my mysterious package to arrive.

    I just wanted to thank my santa SoCo_and_Lime again for Watchmen. I'd never read a graphic novel before, so didn't really know what to expect, but I can't put it down.

    It's an amazing book, and I have been introduced to a whole now genre! When I'm finished I'll have to ask for some recommendations.

    Thanks!

    It's very likely a lot more will be receiving similar gifts, so you might get some good ideas from what they get :)

    Dear Santee,

    Phase 1 (or possibly Phase 2 depending on which arrives first) has been ordered direct to your house, and the other phase will be mailed by me tomorrow (if I can find time to.)

    Unfortunately, I forgot to request gift wrapping on the phase thats going straight to your house, so be excited opening the box instead.

    Yay Christmas.

    Package wrapped, organized, packaged, and taped like a mother fucker.

    Congratulations Santee, it's a healthy package! 11 lbs, 6 oz... 22 inches long.

    Sending off tomorrow. It's only an 8-hour drive to your city from me, so I hope it arrives this week.

    (Canada Post estimates 6 business days.. but they're stupid)

    For me thats not true...

    Ordered something from Amazon using the free super save (5 - 7 day estimate) was shipped and at my door the next day. Ordered something from the RobotShop, same shipping estimate, was there within two or three days.
