    Oh my goodness!

    I was expecting packages from Amazon today but was confused as to why the ink I ordered was in such a big box ....

    gj7a5cc1v7fz.jpg

    Turns out it's not because Amazon is size confused, but because @Noggin is awesome!

    !!!!

    I immediately went down to my shop to hang the rasp saw next to my fret saw. It will be used extensively in the coming weeks!

    THANK YOU NOGGIN!

    That Sherlock Holmes edition is pretty great. I remember that my Dad had like bands 2 and 4 of a Sherlock collection and I read them as a kid. There were some very scary stories in there, now I can see if that holds up. I guess Hound of Baskervilles is the first that usually comes to mind, but for me the scariest was "The Speckled Band".

    Anyway, this edition has nice pictures every couple of pages and I randomly opened it to one that describes my current situation perfectly:

    Thanks again, -Ladybug2332 those are all great gifts!

    Although, in the spirit of the figure skating I saw yesterday you get a technical deduction for giving me candy that now sits in my office, mocking and tempting me. I just arrived! It's 8:30! I can't start eating candy now!

    Satan, I'm updating my wish list to be this post!

    Then you're going to love your third bonus gift...

    As I mentioned, I had a package show up on Wednesday.

    Bunch o' pictures:
    kI2Q7k9.jpg

    Upon receipt, I pulled out my pocket knife and began to open it, like you do...

    wjbWRBZ.jpg

    when suddenly it began to open itself, ripping and rearranging its own cardboard self as it unfolded. I leaped back in shock, dropping my knife on the counter...

    KnSaqB7.jpg

    as it fully revealed itself to be not a package, but something far worse. The momentary shock abated, and I lunged forward...

    T33U5ea.jpg

    scrambling to reclaim my knife. It lurched forward, but I was faster, or so I thought, until it propelled itself into the air...

    oHxtJsr.jpg

    and latched on to my other arm, its terrible mandibles clicking mere inches away from my face. In my haste to get away from the thing...

    JgjxlUp.jpg

    I fell, and it scrabbled its terrible way on to my chest. Its sharp, corrugated claws sank into my flesh as it climbed closer to my head, clearly aiming for the kill...

    KgxPry3.jpg

    a kill I just managed to beat it to, flinging it down onto the ground and running it through with my blade. As it spent its last few moment struggling on the linoleum...

    RHbX9kQ.jpg

    I returned myself to its contents. A book, and a message...

    u9oOY1C.jpg

    "Knowledge"

    What could it mean? I certainly feel as if I know more now than I did before this terrible night, but I worry that this incident has not yet come to a close.

    To be continued...

    So I'm not entirely sure which Secret Gifting Enterprise this package is the result of because no note!
    But I got this package:

    It was squishy and intriguing.
    And then I opened it, and it was awesome!

    I don't know about FedEx specifically, but I've got 2 packages shipping from opposite sides of the country and both should have been delivered two days ago. Now it pretty much says they'll deliver them when they get around to it. There are shipping alerts because of the CA wildfires, but that shouldn't have affected either of mine. So yeah, I think there are some wide ranging shipping issues across the services.

    Good point, I went ahead and fixed that.

    Also another package arrived today, sandwiched between the screen door and my actual door. What was within it?
    KptcF30.jpg?1

    More books! They also came with some jumbled tags but I think I got them matched up to their appropriate titles so here's what Satan had to say about them:
    Goblin Emperor

    Political fantasy! This book pairs well with another in my gift, as each looks at the justice (or lack thereof) in massive empires, from very opposite perspectives.
    Flex

    Urban fantasy! The main character is a "bureaucromancer" who works magic through forms and contracts and if that isn't the most urban of urban fantasy I don't know what is except maybe that other urban fantasy book I sent.
    Wake of Vultures

    This one isn't paired with another thematically, it's just a rad weird west fantasy about a mixed-race, bisexual, non-binary monster hunter.

    Out of all of them I'd say that Flex is what's really catching my attention right now with the concept of magic as a drug to snort and what sounds like screwing with causality, but with the drawback of existence itself trying to counter-balance it to maybe-lethal effect. Combine that with the bureaucromancer concept and I'm on board before I even turned the first page. The cover design certainly helps in that regard as well.

    Thanks again @Fearghaill !

    I am now officially in PA. On the plane ride here I was chatting with the guy next to me, mostly about our kids and living in Vegas and I was like "well this is a pleasant trip."

    Then he segued into conversation about his alcoholic ex-wife, who became "one of them Hebrews," and her not celebrating Christmas anymore was robbing them of their childhood. I said "well, I'm Jewish," and waited for the inevitable backpedal when he realized he had been talking about it with someone who is Jewish.

    Which never came. Instead he said "yeah, one of them." He said he has nothing against Judaism (Ju-DAH-ism) or the Hebrews, but Christmas isn't even about all that, it's just about family and making good memories together, and without it his kids don't even believe in God anymore, and they aren't allowed to have an imagination anymore.

    Instead of taking all that on, I became very interested in how much my baby needed me, thanked my lucky starts that my son with his kippah on was in a different row, and thought to myself when is this plane going to take off.

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn

    On Thursday I received a second package.
    This time I was suspicious.

    b055c7fa-fb09-4eae-b68c-d884c58f2b1f-original.jpg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    This time I was prepared.

    d5cedaf1-6f6d-460b-9fe5-316f49732161-original.jpg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I opened the box without incident, and there were more books inside!

    14f84812-874e-4607-96fb-1bd5f26cf6cf-original.jpg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I immediately dug in, and began reading.

    30d954ec-86f8-4894-9159-6c3de8d4600c-original.jpg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    It got the drop on me, but I was bigger and stronger than it.

    a266e13c-a564-47ae-ae69-a89f660ca99c-original.jpg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I had knocked it to the ground, I had disarmed it, but I had to act fast to make sure it stayed down. I grabbed an improvised weapon, my reading material of but a few minutes prior.

    d8fdf506-43f7-4215-89b3-e4cd1effa449-original.jpg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

    I raised it above my head.

    And cleanly separated the cardboard bastard's head from its body.
