    @zeromyst are you participating in multiple gift exchanges? there's no raingirllori participating in this one as far as I know.

    There's also no mention of bobcats.

    I suppose it may be a clever ruse to hide someone's identity.

    Yeah, that matches someone in redditgifts http://redditgifts.com/profiles/view/raingirllori/

    the anticipation is killing me I want to know if my Bobcat arrived safely... I worry about the Postal Ogres and their near legendary ability to make things unrecognizable. Also I always wonder if the recipient will like it.

    Being a crazy Virginia Tech alum, I could appreciate the need for school gear. Always wanted a big flag myself when I was at school, so I was happy to be able to find one for you.

    Wohoo, I got my Bobcat today! It was delivered a few days ago but I didn't know about it until the apartment manager's office called to tell me it was here.

    Everything is perfect! It's all the things that I like and nothing that I already have. That is such a fine line to walk blindfolded - thank you so much, Direwolf!

    I have so many origami, vintage fantasy and science fiction magazines and Gaiman/McKean books but none of these! I can't wait to dig into them!

    This is so awesome! I actually had a copy of this CD for the band to sign on their Denver stop during Warped tour but the little kid behind me had nothing for them to sign so I gave him mine.
    I always felt a little wistful about giving up that CD but NO MORE! :D

    Again, thank you Direwolf! Best gifts ever!

    Turns out this gift was in the Enforcer community, so the suspense of my PAX bobcat looms still!
    I received a shirt with a poignant reminder of the dangers of improper use of the Mare Signal:

    fc,550x550,creme.jpg

    There was no name or other markings indicating who the shirt came from however, and as this (and by extension, the Enforcers) are the only places I specifically have noted interest in MLP I suspect it was one of you. So thank you, whoever you are! I love it :D

    (Edit: I have in fact taken a picture of the actual shirt as well, but I'm having a hard time locating my sync cable to upload it :P Just wanted to get an image up so everyone knew what the shirt looks like, both for enjoyment and so my santa can more easily identify what I'm talking about!)

    So my post office is silly and apparently decided I wasn't home the other day (when I, in fact, was). Supposefdly a note was left for to pick up a box at the post office, but I've yet to see this note. Luckily, Zerzhul played messenger monkey and clued me in to this.

    Presents! Bobcats!

    Funny story, I won that game in a raffle last weekend. My bf wants his own copy though, so now I have a Christmas present for him. Hooray!
    And I get to learn about cooking for myself. Because I'm terrible at it.

    And packing material to pop! (Which was slightly more exciting when I misread it as "full-air extreme."

    Thanks Kropotkin! :D

    Turns out my gift was from the Enforcer exchange, so the mystery of my bobcat still remains!

    I was late out the door this morning and I had a bobcat waiting for me on the front porch! Had to wait allllll day to open it.

    And when I got home, my day was made. The Walking Dead Boardgame and homemade fudge (that tastes phenomenal)! Also, squirrel underpants slightly confused, but I giggled when I saw them.

    Thanks so much @DashD

    You're welcome! I'm glad to know it got there safely. I am a firm believer that everyone should own a pair of squirrel underpants at some point.

    Aww, man. I had this killer Christmasy poem all typed up that retells the story of unpacking my bobcat. Unfortunately the forums are lame and I should apparently be writing anything I post in Notepad because it'll get lost. :(

    That said, after much delay due to a comedy of errors on my end, I present to you my bobcat!

    Upon first opening I see "Sakura Designs". No idea what this is, I am most intrigued!
    IMG_20121210_081332.jpg

    Upon opening the brown box, I see a most curious sight - beads and a silky orange pouch!
    IMG_20121210_081442.jpg

    It even came with an instruction booklet!
    IMG_20121210_081503.jpg

    These beads really work! My happy increased 4000% upon use:
    IMG_20121210_081645.jpg

    I love that you took my sarcasm and ran with it, PayneTrayne! This is something totally unique that no one else would have ever thought of getting me. Bobcat mission: accomplified! :D

    Mod Edit: AGB's lost poem:

    'Twas a chill Winter's morn when I receiv'd 'pon my inbox, a most urgent message asking about the most sekrit of bobcats. Upon my review, as fate would have it, my wife doth receiv'd it and I never did notice. Filled with remorse for the tardy response, I delved into the package to discover the contents.

    When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a small brown parcel from Sakura Designs

    Why, it could only be a mala, the most Tibetan of beads!

    Into thy brown eyes my focus was gazing, the orange silken pouch makes this gift most amazing! But wait, that wasn't all, in fact there's much more!

    Tucked just up under the little brown box, is a small ruddy book with the keys to the locks. I devoured it all to unlock the mystery and it brought me such joy that, well, the rest is just hist'ry!
