    Well that is incredibly tempting. Oh my gosh.

    Still don't feel I can justify it though.

    Maybe if I was doing something for someone else. But then that defeats the whole point of this operation.

    Smof if you sign up and get a dinosaur and take pictures of the dinosaur (double points for pictures of the dinosaur with your bro's kittens) then it will make me happy.

    Boom, you're doing it for someone else.

    Well I can't help what Walt did to a traditional folk character! Also may have his roots in Native American lore.

    She's already one of those

    Creating a dinosaur from nothingness is much more powerful sorcery.

    What I'm hearing here is that Sheri is Harry Dresden.

    Which is totally fitting, because her works as displayed here on the forums are magical.

    I may sign up for my little brother again, cause it was amazing last year and it made my mom super happy that he had some gifts under the tree besides the few they could afford.

    Here he is with one of his gifts from last year :3

    Mostly OT but @zerzhul pointed this thread out to me and it makes me feel so incredibly warm and happy and humbled. And, hopefully, next year, I can afford to participate as a Saint. <3

    So this year keeps getting worse. I am struggling hard with getting off pain meds while increasing the stamina I lost during surgery while trying to avoid depression. So I am try to get prepared for a job interview come spring.

    But today I found out that my father lost his job. So I'd like to sign up for this thing,

    My mom likes books and neat cookwear/plates. My dad loves Alabama Crimson Tide gear, even Crimson Tide Cufflinks or a houndstooth coozie. I like video games and reading, and I'm working on building a computer. By 'working on' I mean I have a case and no power source.

    Any help would be appreciated. I have a sister too, but she's traveling around the world right now and I have no idea how to help with that. Any Alabama Crimson Tide gear, from cups to dresses to scarfs would be great.

    Really, any help would be appreciated and know that I love you all even if I haven't been around much to say it.

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    Aww c'mon Munky-poos, you're a fucking beast and you know it.

    The shit you've been through?

    It would end a lesser man.

    But no, you're still here, fighting, kicking, clawing, scratching your way up out of that pit.

    Keep your chin up, son, you're an inspiration.

    Wait... Chris... be careful.

    Munkus is well known to be an unstoppable badass, fueled purely by rage, mind and body alike honed to a razor's edge.

    I suspect he's merely trying to lull us into a false sense of security.

    Better hook these people up, just to be safe.

    But seriously, be strong MB. We've got your back.

    Mully, you're so awesome for setting this up.

    It took a lot to admit, but I signed up. Things have been bad, but they've been getting worse. I'm on the job hunt for something better, but I have my doubts that I'll get something good before Christmas.

    Editing in a brief outline of my current situation.
    I've been underemployed and mostly depressed for 4 years now. I get job interviews, but never quite manage to out compete the other applicants. Sometimes that would kill my self-confidence and cause a backslide to depression. Lately, the depression has lessened, aside from the situational depression of trying to live on poverty wages and not having a car. Recently my hours were cut at work so my employer can get out of paying for insurance. As it stands now, I can sometimes spare $20 or so a paycheck for anything non-essential. At this point a lot of my clothes are in bad shape and I can't afford to replace them. Clothes or help with rent are my biggest problems.
    I recently got some great suggestions for my resume and I've done some serious networking, so I'm hopeful things will change soon. If I do manage to land a good job before Christmas (or even after), I will be paying it forward so hard.

    I'm the laziest about updating my profile. Give me a sec here. And hi Plut!

    Apparently I messed up the bbcode. And it was probably wrong for over a year. Whoops!

    God, it's so embarrassing to admit that you need help. Despite knowing how poor I am and that I'm close to having to move back home again. I still feel like others could use help more than me.

    I realize this, but I'm a proud person and the base culture of the U.S. really frowns on admitting weakness. Even with an anthropology background, it's disturbing how deep these beliefs can control you.

    Still, thanks for the support.

    There's always someone who 'could use more help than you'. And someone who could use more help than them, and so on. And then you just keep going down the chain to the end and suddenly you have one seriously unlucky guy who gets all the sympathy and free stuff, and that's not fair. Screw that guy.

    Just think, you could put something nice for your spiders on a wishlist!

    Like uh.

    Ok so I dunno what spiders like, but that's not the point! You do!

    Speaking of spidery things, this has been on my amazon wishlist for two years now and my family haven't thought to get it for me. Maybe they think it's not a 'proper' enough gift??? I am considering giving them no option this year and when they ask for my wishlist I will remove everything else but this.

    I mean I could just buy it for myself, it's only a tenner, but it doesn't feel right buying myself a cuddly toy.

    There's a documentary called Gideon's War or Gideon's Warriors or...something.

    I am trying to regain stamina to do that kind of work when I am better and basically pay forward all the goodwill I have gotten. God Bless.

    I've been thinking a lot about signing up for this.

    This year I won't be able to do Secret Satans, because November and December are going to consist of nothing but me paying medical bills for myself and my dog, and then me paying for school applications and classes, and it's just not the financial situation where I have any wiggle room. Moving back to the States has been really difficult for me; I lost a ton of belongings in the move - books, records, clothes, useful household stuff - and I didn't have the benefit this time of being able to take furniture from my parents' house like when I left home for college. So I'm starting from scratch, basically, and now I have at least some furniture, but I still feel like halfway squatting in my own apartment. I have no social life now that I've relocated and am po' so I have lots of time to really appreciate the squatting lifestyle.

    Anyway... I'm feeling like I'm the crummiest and that the plans that brought me back to the States in the first place are going nowhere. And that all sucks. I guess I fall into the 'could use some cheering up' category...

    Aww close to my home (I grew up in MD)

    Also my mom lives in Virginia Beach now!

    I hear it's cold as heck up there (according to Mom). Maybe you need more scarves

    It was actually in the fifties today here in Charlottesville so not too bad! I went jogging without a scarf or hat.

    That said there is literally no such thing as too many scarves.

    I wish I owned a decent cowl

    or, the more practical option, a fancy hoodie

    hurm, I'm a little bummed that I probably wont be able to do satans this year

    or much of the steam winter sale

    one of these years I will be Miss Moneybags

    and I will exact revenge on the generous
