    I just *finally* got my bobcat shipped out. Someone should be on the lookout for a USPS Priority Mail box on or around December 20. When they receive it, I do caution to use care when opening. The shipping container is wired with a custom audio system and I would hate for it to get damaged before you can experience the THX quality.

    After a surprise trip to Alaska, my bobcat finally arrived a few days ago. I finally got together it for a picture at work in front of my lava lamp and next to my fiery skull.

    My bobcat looks a bit reptilian, I think that trip to alaska has it in shock. Thanks, drobro/chupamiubre.

    Yea that surprise week long vacation in Alaska was a bit disconcerting. So glad everything arrived intact! Also this gift is mainly based off of the first letter that moe wrote to santa well the one written by smalls for him.

    My husband called me to ask why I shipped wrapped gifts to myself. I was confused, and then I asked him to check the address it was sent from: California. There's a pretty good chance these mystery gifts are from my Santa (as I only participate in this one, and the idea of my family members actually mailing ~anything~ is hilarious) but I will not be back in town until Saturday. So I must wait, but I'm super excited regardless.

    Last night, as I was rushing to work, I found a package. 'lo and behold, my bobcat had arrived! Contained within an unassuming box was something I couldn't believe:
    I apologize in advance for the picture quality - these were taken pre-dawn in a dim room.
    RLeKQ.jpg
    Some absolutely scrumdiddlyumptious homemade cookies that I can guarantee won't survive the weekend (or, more likely, the day); a brilliant card that has the mystical ability to summon cats when activated; and a pair of very well wrapped rectangles. I love this Cthulhu wrapping paper - definitely saving it!
    And inside:
    6mEgR.jpg
    Two fantastic surprises! Axe Cop Munchkins is perfect! My friends have a game night coming up and this is definitely getting some play time.
    And the ASOIAF/Game of Thrones cookbook - I. Am. Speechless. You have stalked me well! So many recipes I want to try!!!
    @Mystral721, I don't know how it came about that we got each other as bobcat wranglers, but I am so happy we did! Your card mentions a second package - but what could possibly top this?! Will have to post an update when it arrives!

    p.s. If you've never heard a rather large grown man squee with delight, I can tell you it's loud enough to wake a deep-asleep roommate from 3 rooms away.

    edit: @Mystral721 clued me in to an item I had missed (went unnoticed among the packing material and my enthusiasm):
    Th6sj.jpg A pair of copper dice in a velvet bag. They are beautiful!

    So here I am in the lab but then a knock at the door and the mail man drops off a rather sticky package
    SX16d.jpg
    With trepidation I investigate further
    IheUk.jpg
    MwYL9.jpg
    While it vaguely resembles a nefariousness device a rival might mail me I recently dispatched my last rival so I had little fear.
    5Uc0p.jpg
    while i am a fan of 90's comedian bobcat goldthwait this seems to be a bit much. So i rummage around the box a bit further and I find treasures!

    Oh look a Dosimeter I have been needing one since my last one was broken in a bungee jumping accident.
    MDUwT.jpg

    Marbles woot! Oh wait look they seem slightly off in color. Wait let me get by black light.

    Yep they glow these are genuine uranium glass marbles!


    Well AtomicGaryBusey Thank You very much!

    I am getting a little worried. The tracking says my bobcat was delivered on Wednesday, but I have not seen anything from my giftee yet. Hope I do not end up on the naughty list.

  • chaosisorderchaosisorder Cupcake Princess and Pinny Whore OregonRegistered User regular
    If you are my bobcatee, and tracking says it has been delivered, please get a helper to send me the tracking number to go hunting.

    Also, my bobcat's gift is somewhere between countries still. I think it may be walking there.

  • chaosisorderchaosisorder Cupcake Princess and Pinny Whore OregonRegistered User regular
    So, thanks to the godless heathens of China post, I was able to have my bobcat delivered ON CHRISTMAS DAY! BOOYAH!

    (That is some magic freaking timing right there, Wackbag.)

    They actually delivered the box here, which is more than a surprise. Normally, I have to trek to the post office to find the ruffled and repacked box. Wackbag used some sort of juju to get it to my door, unmolested, but one kitty needed to do a perimeter security check.

    wnyU2.jpg

    Kitty approved when he saw the note, which explained that the wrapping paper inside was not around the gifts as it would have likely arrived unwrapped many times over.

    DxUKb.jpg

    Inside, Can Has paper, Munchkin Zombie, and a soft kitty hat! Yay! Thank you Wackbag!

    iMraK.jpg

    The hat is really, really crazy warm. I cannot wait to see the looks of jealousy among the Chinese when I wear this up to the ice castles in Harbin. Especially when i explain it was from my secret bobcat- which will require some new mandarin for me....

    Yes, it's a bit of a rolling present. Part 2 should arrive on the 4th.
    I was so excited when I got you. Don't know when else I'd have a reason to make a Kool-Aid Man pillow :P

    I came home *right* before I left for Christmas and got a message from my roommate sewingpunzie that I got a missed package notification from the Bobcat Adoption Society!

    With an amazing letter from pureval!

    My bobcat kitten is the cutest thing in the world! She has only tried to claw my eyes out three times! I am so thankful I can give her a home. I have named her Angel. She hangs out on my shoulder when I play Guild Wars 2. :)

    Here is a picture of our happy family!

    I also got food for the bobcat, all with a handy Boston Bruins carrying case. D:

    I was getting worried about it. Glad you like it. And I just now realized I forgot to take the tags off some things. Sorry. It was a rough month. Hope you got some cool ponies in there.

  • vttymvttym Registered User regular
    I was stoked to see a nice package waiting for me when I got home tonight! But what did I have in store for me?

    First, what was in the box:
    ltisO.jpg
    Hmm.. so much potential. But first.. the card!

    9boqI.jpg
    bVIF4.jpg
    Awesome.. for what it's worth, I pictured a cowbell banging while opening the gifts..

    Next, what was inside the wrapping?
    I needed help, whether I realized it or not:
    hflr1.jpg

    And once we got it open - ZOMG BOWLING ZOMBIES!!!

    SLEIA!

    And a crawling zombie, which I will now make people push when standing outside my cube before they can talk to me:

    And a final, group shot:

    Don't forget those magic cards! Got a few that I can add to my decks!!

    so, since there is a known customs delay on kropotkin's gift, is it then safe to say that everyone properly followed through with the gift-giving this year? no undue delays or slackers? if so, excellent work everyone! secret bobcats was super fun this year!

    It really warms my heart to see how much thought and effort people put into their bobcats. Especially for people they probably do not know and may never actually meet. My coworkers, who see each other every day, put zero effort into our Secret Santa, to the point I do not want to run it next year. One person just gave a $10 bill and the receiver gave it another person as their gift. My person grabbed the first thing he saw on his lunch break with a Star Wars logo on it.

    I am really glad to be a part of this and to see people who really do care. Thanks guys.
