    Sent my bobcat today. You should see some happy photos tomorrow as it arrives in a new home. Just hope they open the box right.. because it would be awful if something happened to the lil' guy.....

    Seconding @pureval: @SmallLady, SNAFUs or not, I think you've done a wonderful job. It's a damned shame that people missed out due to technical glitches, but were it not for you and your efforts there wouldn't be a PAX Secret Santa Sekrit Bobcat exchange at all. It's a big job for one set of small(lady) shoulders!

    (On that note, I'd be more than willing to try to help out next year if if there's any way I can!)

    Reminder to people sending gifts.

    Please identify who you are to your giftee as well as what exchange your gift is for, as many people do more than one exchange.

    Thanks!

    not sure if the card was lost or if he just forgot to mention, but i should have been identified with the gift i sent. maybe amazon is being lazy with their gift tags?

    So, this morning, I awoke with a ding-dong and a vehicle peeling out of the driveway. I sprang from my bed to see what was up. I opened the door and found a little box. I saw that the label was for me and schlunked back to my room. Inside was this:
    5sRht.jpgg

    Twas from the Carboard Tube in the sky!

    Inside the red package was this:

    Inside the blue one was this:

    Toe socks! yes!


    With these in hand, I shall be warm this winter and entertained by these! Thanks Sekrit Bobcat (Sean)!

    Seriously, those toe socks are amazballs.

    I buy 3 new pairs every pax, and they save all my little toes from blisters. :D

    @rileyper, I was your Secret Bobcat, I forgot to put my forum name in the package. I did write on the front that it was for this gift exchange though, so at least I did that right.

    And @tvethiopia, I went back and checked the packaging slip again and your forum name was on the side, I just missed it the first time.
    Thanks again!

    I was sitting in my room feeling complete boredom as I was stuck waiting for a WoW patch to install on my slow-ass internet when I heard UPS driving outside just now. I didn't think anything of it until there was a knock at my door. Confused, (As I am expecting another package soon but not this soon) I ran downstairs to answer my door and found a box from Amazon!

    A bundle inside, what can it be?!?!

    Lego Star Wars for DS, A book about Ed Gein (who I studied for shits and giggles a long time ago), and Tales from the Crypt seasons 1 and 2.

    Love, Love, LOVE all this stuff! Thank you, blAAAm!!! I am no longer bored :)

    I was visited by my favorite Santa today, Brown Santa :D . I was expecting some goodies from Newegg because of their Black Friday / Cyber Monday / Buy Our Shit siren call.

    But one of these things is not like the other!

    I spy with my little eye...."Amazon Fulfillment Services"

    Inside I find a most wonderful of anime gifts. It can snuggle next to my Lain art book :)

    Inside was also a lovely note:

    "My apologies, but Amazon was all out of bobcats [understandable, it being peak bobcat season]. I hope that this lovely artbook will suffice. I myself have a great fondness for NGE, and seeing this on your list brought back many fond memories. Happy $WINTERHOLIDAY! -LittleMissRachel"

    And a Merry Festivus to you as well. I might have to dust off the DVDs and have myself an Evangelion weekend, and thank you so much for my bobcat substitute.

    I would just ask someone you know on the forums to pass along a PM. If all else fails, you can use me (if it's not me).

    I'm glad you like it! (And extra bonus points for the Lain AB - another old favorite of mine!)

    Aforementioned fond memories also have me wanting to dig it up and rewatch (and, of course, resume cursing the delay on the next segment of Rebuild...). Festive Yule to you!

    hm, still sounds like amazon dropped the ball. there should have actually been TWO of those little tiny gift cards they put in with a happy secret bobcats message (i chose two in case the items got shipped separately). DAMN YOU AMAZON -shaking fist at the sky-

    YAAAAY!! I hoped you would like them. When I first got the email from SmallLady about who I got, I'm like, "She assigned me someone with a lot of my own interests..this is cake!" I am very pleased that I happened to coincidentally get you something you've been wanting to get yourself with a fun touch! Wasn't sure about the bracelet though because some people don't like jewelry. :) Enjoy!
