    I can remember one or two in person Santa-ings in the past, but they are few and far between.

    I think it'll be there Tuesday or Wednesday. I'm not sure what will happen when the tracking updates.

    A warning to all! Make sure you check the address you are sending stuff to.
    I'm a goob and didn't check the shipping address from amazon.ca and apparently I ordered stuff from amazon.ca that is now going to try and make its way here.
    Thought I totally changed the shipping address. I even had his address saved!

    Also glad you guys met up and hopefully had a good time! My wife had asked about matching santee's up that were nearby and I said go for it!

    My G&T Secret Santa hasn't revealed themselves yet. :bigfrown:

    I'm interested in knowing if they also sent me the Old Man's War book, which by the way has been very interesting. I just got to the part where:
    "It was me, only 50 years younger."

    Look, don't make me get @Radiation involved here! Speaking of ole' Radiation, here's a video of the cutting board I sent @Madpoet:

    I'm still working on my top secret Santee project, hopefully I can get it done in time before the new year! If I can make enough time, I may be able to make a ton of progress this weekend/Christmas and get it sent soon after.

    (Also I already sent stuff, so this isn't' the only thing)

    Last week, my generous Secret Santa shed the veil of secrecy... because apparently we work like 2 blocks apart or something. Advantages of not having to stick stuff in the mail while a postal strike is going on? Massive.

    And thus, a patient and generous soul, we met near a local Starbucks, where all proper drug deals and gift exchanges between strangers should take place. All kidding aside, it was immensely appreciated that they took time not just out of their schedule to pick and obtain the gift, but to hand deliver it. How many people here get personal hand delivery? Very few, I imagine. Oh sure, hundreds or thousands of miles might make that impractical, but still, a one of a kind experience in and of itself!

    And so, below my beloved tree, containing ornaments nerdy and non, from this year to others from when I was but a baby, the present was tucked with others that have been coming in.
    6n7xn0zrxc4d.jpg

    "I could just look at it now, but I should save it." I said to myself.

    .... "the waiting game sucks, let's do this!"

    Thank you, @theoriginalz, for your thoughtful and generous gift. My love of Lego and Star Wars make this a perfect gift. All the best to you and those near to you over the holidays!

    Edit: damnit, on Windows all of those files together are like 1.7 megs, they're 2-3 times the size here on the forums. One sec while I clean up this 5+ meg mess.



    I really tried finding something that sorta looked like the taxi vehicles in ME and this was the closest thing. Enjoy!

    Yay! I actually did order a switch but then remembered you mention it as a thing you were getting for your birthday so figured multiple gifts were better than just a console! And i also bought one for myself so it was a sort of "oh he's going to live this!" thing. Hopefully birthday isn't far off so you can experience the wonder of the switch!

    I had Santa @see317 (with a little help from our friends).

    I got a huge box! Yes there was taffy but there was so much more. I got:

    Toys for my puppies (bonus action pictures of the slaughter in the album)
    Personalized ornaments for my dogs (I got a little weepy)
    Chocolate oranges
    A fidgit puzzle
    A book trilogy
    A hollow book
    The Bravely games (I have beaten both bit oddly enough I was about to rebuy them for another play through so ... good timing lol)


    https://m.imgur.com/a/35jyA2l

    Thank you so very much Santa!

    Great to see it arrived @Elin.
    Looking through your post history about your dogs, I doubt those toys will make it a week, but the box had space so... what other choice was there? Anyway, I'm glad to see them being enjoyed before being de-fluffed, and apologize for the inevitable fluffy mess.

    I'd also like to thank @MNC Dover for helping out when it looked like I shouldn't sign up this year. It's a great feeling to be told that I'm not allowed to to bow out of this.
    Also, a nother big thanks to @Radiation and/or Mrs. Radiation for hooking me up with a local Santa so I wasn't shipping taffy and the rest over seas.
    The puppers after my Photoshop 101 level hackery. It was a pretty fun little project to do.

    No problem @see317! It's completely unacceptable for you not to be delivering taffy during this time of the year. And that's quite a bit of stuff you sent @Elin, certainly more funding than I hooked you up with. :wink:

    I've been a part of this community for just over 10 years now. Everyone here is awesome and deserves to have the very holiday they can. If I can help out, you're darn right I will. For me, that's a big part of what being PA is all about! As long as I can, I'll gladly hook up people here.

    To be honest, more than a few gifts were from my collection, and living near a used media store does have some benefits. I hope that pre-owned gifts aren't considered too severe of a yule tide faux pas.

    Imgur is a good image host. Google sometimes gets more complicated than it's worth.

    You can also change your links to include a lower case L before the .jpg and it makes a smaller image great for forums.

    Yeah I usually use Imgur but I just took the photos on my phone and was trying to figure out an easy way to get it from my phone to my PC. I want the post to look nice, too. Posting straight from my phone makes that difficult.

    So after a rousing session of phone games after a nap, I finally wandered out of my room to see what was going on, and lo and behold, a wild package had appeared on my doorstep!

    First, of course, came the usual security sweep, conducted by Keeper:
    gcgElFY.jpg?1

    Now that it's passed through security cleanly, time to see what's inside...
    gshnudD.jpg

    That's an awful lot of paper and little air bags- oh, well, at least the cats will be pleased with that! Let's just get in here and do a little rummaging...
    dirUVHJ.jpg

    Two neatly-wrapped packages. I wonder what could be inside? Though Security did come sniffing around the box again, and ended up confiscating it for... reasons. (Also, obligatory cat post is obligatory!)
    "Sorry, hoomin. But I fits, so I has to sits."
    CfkM8Mb.jpg

    No matter. Let's see what's in the first one! Hmmm... this one says... "Open First"...
    A wild BLU-RAY PLAYER! I know, I'm terribly behind the tech curve these days. It's also been years, and I still hadn't gotten around to upgrade my DVD player! This will be put to good use, for sure!
    eTniDXK.jpg

    And the second package...?
    Season 4 of Game of Thrones! Time to get back into the story- and with a nifty little magnet, too!
    qY4uOOi.jpg

    All in all, it was a nifty little package- but Santa didn't put their name on it (except for their real name, which I'm not letting get out!

    Below, a picture of everything included!

    @JaysonFour Yay! It got there in one piece. I couldn't find a smaller box to fit everything so I had to cram it with as much paper as I can. And, of course, after I sent it out I realized that I didn't put my forum name anywhere in there! I hope you enjoy your show... I'm not sure if I could have let the "don't have a blu-ray player" go so that was the first thing that I had to buy. :) I hope you and your niece have a very happy holidays!
