    This was my very 1st Secret Santa and my mind was blown, along with my heart! I'm sitting on the couch and Madpoet comes home from work with a ginormous box that he proceeds to stash behind the couch where I'm sitting. He then throws a letter at me.
    2cr6s8c89tno.jpg
    Where I get all excited like a little puppy and ask if he's outside! Madpoet just replied that if I read the letter I'd know my answers.
    gogxthbqaucc.jpg
    I'm sucked to the most beautiful and sweet letter anyone has ever written me, and I haven't even gotten to the presents part yet. I'm already in love with this guy's personality that is just pouring out of the letter and he's using my favorite font that Madpoet always makes fun at me for! As I'm reading my letter and instructions Babou is making sure things are OK for me backstage.
    50068de2w6bd.jpg
    What I have is the privalege to be a part of is a story of this wonderful man and where he lives. Madpoet says I'm not supposed to put a ton of pictures up so I'll put some things together so it won't be too long. My beautiful letter has markers and at each spot to stop and tell Madpoet a #. He then gives me the corresponding present. They are all wrapped in adorable paper, I LOVE SKULLS!!!
    yyn1t4wmltfw.jpg
    So it starts... The 1st is a book called The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Never heard of it, the note gives a beautiful meaning and personality behind the book. The next marker I receive another book Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews. K I'm kinda scared, the back goes This is the funniest book you'll ever read about death. Back to the letter... explains again the meaning and importance I am curious again. My third marker is a movie Wonder Boys. My fourth marker brings Night of the Living Dead. At this point I'm bouncing around the couch and Madpoet is all wait keep reading... Five brings a huge tin of local famous popcorn. I'm going to die. I have a popcorn addiction. Mom every year I can remember has bought me at least 2 tins of popcorn every Xmas. Six now brings samples from a famous local sweet shop. I'm seriously about ready to cry. Madpoet oh don't even keep going. Seven, he plops on my lap a huge heavy as hell box. Upon opening I find a dozen different bottles samples of the pop from the local place. Yes they all made it, some where still 1/2 frozen.
    ok1cqd7dakf0.jpg
    Something else totally cool, with each delicacy comes a snipped of story about the history of the place.
    OK by this point I'm totally making faces ready to cry whimpering how sweet and wonderful, thoughtful, and generous this guy is.

    Madpoet, don't even keep reading. I'm clutching the letter to my chest and seriously scared to keep reading. Eight. I don't even know how to describe it. Is like someone was talking straight from their heart and were so sweet and full of love and kindness. Like a long lost best friend. He requested that Madpoet take me out on an adventure. Off to Robo Taco to eat my fill and then whisk me off to Guardian Games and get what my heart desires there. Yup I'm crying. This letter is going straight in my memory box (which up to now only held notes mom has ever written me). This gift has brought so much excitement, curiosity, joy and tears. I've not read or seen any of the gifts before. Sharing you with me was seriously the best gift I could never even imagine! Thank you feels inadequate.

    Mighty Claus keeps on giving! Last night I received a package that contained:
    IMG_20161211_160703_zps6zbzadkl.jpg

    Also, for reference, when I opened the box, this is the scene I was greeted with:
    IMG_20161211_160928_zps8rlxwmav.jpg
    (In case you can't tell because of the glare, the person on the left in the last scene is... performing an act on himself, shall we say.)

    Thank you, Mighty! I suspect that this is going to be brought out during the Christmas get-together with my cousins-in-law.

    I did not know this was a thing! I might have to look into it as a option when I'm burnt out on CAH.

    I'm behind on the thread, but yes I'm looking at this game as well now.

    I have not gotten the package yet but considering I received a notice today and I'm Canadian, @cooljammer00 are you my Santa???

    If so, you have nothing to worry about! Mississauga is basically Toronto anyways and the package is at the post office by me, I just need to grab it tomorrow after 1pm!

    Wooo! Santa has found the downunder, thanks to the magic of the internets!
    A mysterious message arrived, followed by the receipt of 3(!) emails, each containing a message from Steam, informing me that a certain @Bloodycow had sent me a present.

    Contained within:
    DGHMFOE.png
    The cutest little genetics simulation since the Norns of Creatures. It's looks like some sort of bizarre cross between Civ, and Spore. With added roguelike! (It ticks so many boxes, and I can't wait to try it out) Plus, it has bunnies! and berries!
    There will be many demented horned cat things, coming soon.
    GWpNBZ1.png
    Of course, demented cat creatures can only go so far picking berries. Eventually, they grow up into demented cat civilization, and once you reach that point, colonization of the stars is needed. Herein, domes shall be built, colonies shall grow, prosper and then die horribly because I made a simple little error. The best kind of mistake, really.
    lhCVtDJ.png
    And in the third message, an unusual little asymmetric stealth shooter, in which you play as either a specced up Spy, or a hacker controlling things from afar, and watching via a camera feed. I'll definitely need to arrange some time with a friend who has this, as apparently the co-op is amazing fun.

    Many Thanks, Santa @Bloodycow, all of these look amazing!

    A gift is retrieved, after battling some whiteout snow. Finn is sleepy but gets involved.

    Gift 1 and 2! This show flew under my radar so thank you for bringing it to my attention! I love Archer and this show sounds great.

    Gift 3! I've always wanted to watch BTAS and after it disappeared off of Canadian Netflix I put it on the backburner. Now though, I am going to dig into some Batman. I've only ever seen the first two episodes and I loved them, so I'm excited to watch more.
    l6Lr6ey.jpg

    Gift 4! You mention it a strange thing to want considering I am Canadian, but Canadian history is not well known by many of us! I used to be a history major and Canadian History was one of my favorite parts, so I'm excited to dig back into it and learn about my own country.

    The whole haul!

    Thank you so much @cooljammer00! Great mix of stuff I've been putting off digging into for far too long, and a show I didn't know existed and seems like I will love!

    The final box arrived today! It's time to go on an adventure, but we'll need some music to accompany us!



    So I've been a huge Monster Hunter fan for the past 7 or so years. As soon as I saw the MH theme from the letter I got super excited.

    First of all here are the packages! I managed to tear my eyes away from the customs info when each one got delivered to avoid spoilers.

    As instructed I opened the letter first.

    OK so I turned the page and this next picture isn't going in spoilers because it's too awesome and everyone has to see it.

    LOOK AT THESE FUCKING PALICOES OMG. This is super cute and is getting framed asap, Santa your gf is amazingly talented and needs all the thank yous. I think I'll go with Aneira and Kaim, my main two palico names I stole from Lost Odyssey.

    Still grinning like an idiot as the amazing drawing I turned over to the next page.

    Supplies! Looks like we've got a potion, some demondrug for extra attack, dash juice for stamina and a cold drink for the heat of the volcano! These drinks are amazing and have a hilariously over engineered way of opening them, a glass ball that you push down with a special cap instead of a normal twist. So neat!

    Well now that we have supplies let's see what's next!

    A tiny cute Brachydios! If you don't know Monster Hunter Brachydios is the best monster because he punches you with explosions. Also his head is explosive. There's a theme. This little dude is awesome!

    OK, one final box! Let's see what the hunt has rewarded us with!

    Snacks for daaaaaaaaaaaays! I have no idea what half of these are and I can't wait to find out! The little blue squares with the cocktail stick are particularly intriguing. I may have eaten the kit kats while typing this post :o

    @ArcticLancer this is so ridiculously awesome. I love the thought you put into it and going through like a proper hunt was super fun! Thank you so much and give a million thanks to you other half for her fantastic picture!

    I think I saw this on TV once. I'm definitely a fan of junkyard mechs though.

    The smallest gift, but you know what they say about small packages.

    Oh god.

    I followed Christmas tradition and opened it last. It's a card from @noir_blood !

    Thanks a bunch! This will certainly keep me busy during the holidays. Well...once it's warm enough for me to live bed.

    Woo! Glad you like them.

    A couple of years I got gifted a Lego set here, and that kickstarted my collection, so I figured I would pass along this crippling addiction to someone else.

    @mere_immortal HUZZAH, IT CAME IN! I mean, I wasn't exactly worried, but I've had enough dumb mail stuff recently that I just didn't want another one.
    I'm so glad you enjoyed the theme of your gift, and throwing in the MH music was a really good touch. <3 It really was fun piecing the gift together (it didn't exactly start this way, I just realized after finding the first couple of gifts that it would totally work out~), and Janelle (the better half) is super happy you enjoyed the picture as much as you have. Once again, Merry Christmas, man~ ^_^

    Got a notice my gift is incoming! And it's heading this way from that strange, mystical land known as Canada.

    Dear Santa,

    I'll be out of town between the 22nd and the 27th, but our dog-sitter should be able to rescue any packages that show up. I just won't be able to see them until I get back.

    Thank you so much @Antoshka for everything. I made vegetable soup yesterday for a bunch of people and everyone said it was, and i quote, "Amazing".

    You've made me a new man, and now you will have me rise as a new woman.
    Merry christmas!
