    The package. Was slightly off target, ended up in a neighbour's mailbox, but it got to its rightful home in the end.

    Open...

    It's a nice DOTA figurine! It will be a nice decoration to put somewhere around the computer.

    It's a bit of a lonely place, but it'll do for now.

    Well, that was more adventurous than I anticipated. But still, thank you, @Bobkins Flymo. And uh, sorry about the troubles a Canadian address caused you.

    ...what is this lack of clutter near the computer? I do not understand. I thought clutter was required for maximal operation?

    It's a newborn computer. It'll accrue it's protective shell of clutter and assorted detritus as it ages.

    Hey @Dac Vin did that come with a code for in-game? It said it was supposed to.

    Uh err, I might have cleaned up displaced the clutter somewhere else and abused camera angles to not show it.

    Oh sorry. Yeah, it did, I just haven't activated the code yet.

    Cool, just making sure. Enjoy!

    I'm going to have to do some digging, because it certainly appears that the second (and best) half of my gift never made it to my Santee, and the shipper had no tracking available. Grr.

    Yeah, I've been checking for a package slip every day, but no dice. :( I am very happy with what I got, but sad for you!

    Has anyone heard from Proxy or Hypatia? I sent them a message several weeks ago with no response.

  • StericaSterica Yes Registered User, Moderator mod
    Hypatia is preoccupied with some things, so give it some time.

    So, I'm gonna level with you. I was at least 97% sure that Christmas was over. @kendrik had other ideas. The Loot Crates keep coming!

    I really, really like this shirt and the Cap shield. Probably going to plant grass or somesuch in the tiki ninja turtle and set it on my windowsill, I think. The box turns into a comic holder this month, which is also fun. Man, comics have come a long way. I kid you not, the cliffhanger in Action Comics #1 is "will Superman survive this jump?" Hilarious.

    Thank you!

    That should be the last one. I'm glad you got some cool stuff in them! Definitely going on my list for future gifting.

    Behold!!! Only six weeks after its expected arrival, Canada Customs finally released the gift that the excellent @Bursar ordered me from Japan!

    ymbf57sp6gjh.jpg

    It's a Kiseki art book! This is only one of my all-time favourite franchises, and it's super pretty! Thanks so much, Bursar, and sorry the whims of international shipping made you stress out!

    Holy crap! Project: Chillsmith finally trundled its way across the sea! I'm honestly surprised it made it. I hope you like it! (Your husband said you would, but also said he was playing the games at the same time.)

    He wasn't lyin', I was the one who told him he should play the games. ;) I do like it a lot; they even have a bunch of Trails in the Sky characters scattered about in it.

    I just want to say I am sorry for falling so far behind.

    I also wanted to say a huge thank you to Radiation who has been helping me out with the gift wall, he has been amazing and huge kudos to him! :D

    Working on getting stuff up to date now.

    All good. Real life is where it's at, and this is secondary at best. No need to feel sorry about any of it.

    The dust has settled and I finally get to thank @vegeta_666 for all of my gifts! I was so excited, and so happy to have received a haul off Star Wars books, puzzles and an AWESOME Millennium Falcon bottle opener...which has already received its fair share of use helping me plow through a case of Jack's Abby. Thank you so much =)

    It's February, so I think we're long past the time to end the annual festivities.

    Last I checked, we only have two Santees that are still waiting on gifts, and those aren't confirmed deadbeats...yet. So that's another successful shindig in my book, and I'd like to thank @Hypatia for running this thing like butter year after year. It's no easy feat managing this many people, so let's give her a round of applause!

    Feel free to post any late gifts you've received, but for now the holly jolly season must come to a close. Proxy is being prepped for the annual Santaless Sleep, and the wrapping paper is being hauled to recycling. Don't worry though: Secret Santa 2017 is just eight months away!

    I will say I'm disappointed my Santee never posted anything about their gifts.

  • Mace1370Mace1370 Registered User regular
    I posted, but never heard anything from my Santa/who they were. Were you my Santa, shadowane?

    Yeah, for the second year in a row my santees have only posted half of the gifts I sent. I spread em out so the cheer lasts the whole season, but yeah, I feel you.

    People should be posting pics; it's a rule of the event. Let hypatia know and maybe we'll blacklist them for next year.
