    So this week has been especially doodoo because I got the best cold ever and spent a lot of time on the couch feeling terrible. BUT NOT TODAY!

    OlTjH3vh.jpg

    I got a sweet box! Let's see what's inside.

    qJFM7Jhh.jpg

    A bag within the box. Looks pretty neat.

    Playstation Plus membership! I do a lot of gaming on PS4, this'll come in handy.

    OiUnObOh.jpg

    A Kaladesh bundle! I've gotten into Magic heavily since I moved to Washington, kinda using it as a way to widen my nerd friend circle. I opened the contents of the box immediately, and found some useful stuff inside.

    9m7jzPch.jpg

    It's all thanks to @Zython ! I didn't open any golden legendaries in the box, but the whole gift and the thought behind it is a platinum mythological.

    Thanks again, Z. :biggrin:

    "I and love and you" :question:
    E: Oh, apparently that's a song title? Damn kids.

    Mia and her booty.

    She took her new mug, but...

    It was stolen by my parents' 10-week old labradoodle.

    However...
    She was very interested in the hickory bone.

    And has spent the last half hour (and counting) gnawing on it while the puppy is in mandatory naptime.

    Slightly delayed ...
    GiftGet3_zps523eefea.gif

    I'd been following tracking info previously passed along and knew that a parcel should be arriving sometime yesterday. It turned out that at some point after 6PM the UPS guy arrived without notice and left it outside our door in the hallway. Merrily, I discovered it about 2 hours later, but still ... not exactly impressed with that tactic. :/ I expect I'll get a bill in the new year for their services as well, but alas, that's an issue for future-Arctic. For now, it's all Christmas cheer~ <3

    ZE BOX~
    In moving it from the box to the coffee table, I can say this box is not light. I snag girlfriend's Windwaker Link to hide addresses.
    cc9kf91nhemd.jpg

    Upon opening, I believe her exact words were "Oh my gosh."
    Yeah, I can't exactly disagree ...
    a4frdknjfl7l.jpg

    Well, there's a letter on top so I'm going to start there.
    su4b9kxq7j2l.jpg

    D'awww, @reve noire I'm so honoured! I'm going to quell any worries you had right away - You got it right. I mean, that's not even right now me talking. Past me was absolutely certain just by some things I could glimpse on top. Tea, chocolates, tiny Solaire and pins. It's good to know I can be stalked fairly easily. :P

    Much of the contents were jumbled, so I took some liberty in photographing a few sorted groups once we had it all out. Janelle and I thoroughly enjoyed going through everything bit by bit though (it's really her first experience with this as well~) and I'm quite certain you managed a degree of knocking her socks off.
    SO, a fine assortment of candies!
    We ate some. Big Thunder isn't just my favourite name, but what a pleasant sweet!
    l1krbcb166bw.jpg
    A fine assortment of tea-related goodies!
    This includes, as mentioned in the note, a full jar of pumpkin-spice bruleé tea. We had some. It's really good. <3
    cfy09pnj7snp.jpg
    Pins, official Pinny Arcade and otherwise~
    Not gonna lie - the only ones I recognize are project spark and castle guy. I'm not much of a Bethesda guy so ... I knew the Fallout Vault Boy at least. >_> What's the other big fancy metal one?
    b772ch4x0qw3.jpg
    Home-made scarves for both of us, along with a 100% adorable Snoopy&Woodstock ornament!
    It's hard to take a compelling non-model photo of scarves.
    rtvbw2oikl2g.jpg
    The previously mentioned Solaire. It's so good. <3
    I put him on our plushie shelf riding a giant cat. The pose works well for this.
    beiw2r3vofpj.jpg
    Something we've seen here before rather recently ...
    Not going to lie, I actually already have the medium sized print (there's no way you could know that), but this one definitely came on much nicer paper. If I eventually work in an office again I could see this adorning my wall or cubicle~
    3tb2yby9zi9r.jpg
    Oh, and look what you hid at the bottom in a scarf. Clever ...
    Witcher 3! I'd certainly talked this up in my signup this year as I really want Janelle to play it. I'm so glad she can do so in the new year. ^_^
    4ub5p6y4t0ab.jpg

    So like ... you killed it? I think that's about as well as I could summarize. It's kind of funny that most years I've said that I enjoy receiving something made by my Santa, and just forgot this year, but you more than came through anyway. Thank you so much. Seriously. I'm really glad you so thoroughly enjoyed your own gift as well, as that first year experience can definitely be daunting. But if you participate again next year, whoever you pull will be lucky indeed. <3

    After a long day of flying and poo, the family arrived back home on Sunday. As you all know, there is often times a lot of things to do before getting back into your normal life routine. So, without further talking...
    d8gmyjvb8rm3.gif

    I came home to find a pair of boxes awaiting us!
    y3nl2f3gwzy0.jpg
    A smallish box and a tube from an unnamed source. Hmmm...

    Since you can never be too safe these days, I sent in our doggy Daisy to inspect the contents for safety.
    vavj9xotew5p.jpg
    Remind me, what is it you expect me to do?

    After getting the all-clear from Daisy, I begin by opening the small box.
    7u8qo2gzwra3.jpg
    A Hearthstone wallet and tree ornament! That's incredible!

    Next I moved on to the contents of the tube. Here was the first item:
    hur653i5h2w8.jpg
    A huge Hearthstone poster! Wait...I'm sensing a trend here...

    And here was the second:
    kta5p6brdcm4.jpg
    An extremely large mouse pad!

    A picture of all the goods (minus the poster):
    bxy4f5b7m6j8.jpg
    Upon further inspection of the wallet, I found a code for a free pack of cards! Bonus!

    I knew I was going to be a tough buy for my santa, not having a next gen system and really only waiting for the Switch. I'd like to apologize to my santa again for that, hopefully next year will be easier.

    The wallet was great since my old one was fading out. In a show of destined fortune, my old wallet and the new wallet are identical in size and content space. Everything literally transferred one to one. Amazing!

    As for the poster, it was a gateway for that discussion I was wanting to have with the wife since we moved in to our new house 2 years ago. She said we should hang it up, which allowed me to mention the other nerdy posters/pictures I have. Looks like I'll be adding some holiday decorations!

    That ornament lights up and is super awesome. Good call there. I don't actually use a mouse pad (no room on my existing desk), but the wife was in desperate need of a replacement. Looks like everyone won this year!

    OK santa, reveal yourself!

    I am your santa! This was the first year I've done SS on G&T or the PA Forums in general. Along with this one I was also Santa for @TimFiji in Critical Failures. Funny story, I had accidentally shipped Tim's CF Santa present to you, and had to have it re-routed back to me to resend back to him. So that was fun!

    I'm glad you liked your gifts - you were a hard buy for sure, but I noticed that you were the OP for a lot of the Hearthstone threads. :D So that at least gave me a starting point. I also hope your little one gets a lot of fun out of all those blocks.

    I didn't even realize that ornament lit up -- that's even more awesome.
