    I have shipped to my Santee :D
    I wasn't able to include a letter, unfortunately :( since it was kind of sudden.
    Or any indication as to who sent it.

    Yesssssssssssss.

    Package is on it's way, Santee. Be prepared for a box full of awesome, some that you'll like for sure, (I hope), some that you might like, and some that is personal, from me, that you will probably not want to read.

    I just hope it actually gets there, but the shipping at $13 could have been worse, for going to Canada.

    So you're not my Santa? Blast!

    Man, I feel like I might be the worst santa ever for just sending a gift with no cool extras.

    I love how this thread gives me new ideas for what to get as gifts for family, friends and myself. I've actually even ordered some of the items that some lucky fellows have received here. Unfortunetly, I've already sent out my package, so my Santee has to stick with what I've put in there. But, keep the awesome gifts coming guys, there're surely plenty of thing left that I've never heard of that I absolutely need.

    Its official, I've started a second framed gift. This time I need to make the frame though, not its contents.

    My Santee's package is sitting in the Post Office's pile of outgoing mail right now. So expect a package sometime in the next week or so! Not that you know if you're my Santee or not. I just want to get everyone's hopes up. Mwahaha!

    I just got a package!

    ....it was a pair of PSP headphones I got for cheap on Black Friday. Not a Secret Santa item.

    I was simultaneously pleased and depressed.

    My shipping to Canada was like $24 I think. I forget, I could be wrong.

    My package is in fact in Canada as we speak. Expect it very very soon, Santee!

    Hmm, my aunt called letting me know I have a package waiting from amazon in my house. I'm pretty positive I'm not expecting anything... Could..could this be my Secret Santa gift?

    Oh, send me a christmas miracle and let me get out of work early!

    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!

    Excellent! I'm glad you like it and am more than happy to recommend others as well.

    To my santa:

    I received a packing slip in my mailbox today which may be your gift (if you sent it yet of course). I've got to work all day tomorrow :( but I'll be sure to pick it up Friday and post pics.

    I originally wanted to send Watchmen to improvolone, but wasn't sure if he had it already.

    Someone should do a tally at the end to see what was the most often received gift.

    So by "some" you meant "one" and that "one" was the "one" where you were the Santa? And you bring this before me without providing a LINK?

    SECRET SANTA GIFT AHOY!

    Came home and saw a package for me. I've had a pretty shite day so this was good news. But what's this? ROYAL AIR MAIL? I nabbed me a Brit! :)

    I'm actually shit for details right now (I'm in need of a shower, a beer, and a good night's sleep) but I have nothing but thanks to Jam Warrior! The sad news is that the chocolate egg did not make the trip in one piece and I had to dispose of it via my sister. I thoroughly enjoyed your letter and all the gifts (I actually didn't have the zombie guide so its a real treat for me!) and I plan to ration out all the treats to last me a while.

    Did they re-release the Zombie Survival Guide with different art or is that the silly British version? Cause I think that's a little spiffier than the one I gifted.

    Awesome! Yeah my address is the address to my specific school mailbox. Everything gets routed to the university and filtered at our own mail facility.

    This packing slip is going to be burning a hole in my pocket at work tomorrow. I'm sure it's great stuff I can't wait to get it. Thanks in advance! Pics to follow Friday!
