GWJ Secret Stan 2019: The Trichy Claus Affair

Twas three months before Christmas,
And all 'cross the net,
Eager Goodjers were watching
Their inbox. Not yet...

It wasn't quite time
For the onslaught of cheer.
But they knew it drew nigh,
That best time of year.

Suddenly, up
At the top of the page,
That icon turned red,
And the stalking engaged.

From bushes they peered,
On rooftops they prowled,
The satellite feeds
They eagerly devoured.

What goodies would serve,
To delight and confound?
Murderbutts and nutmeg
soon to be all around.

Should this be the first year,
You step into the fold,
Of the Goodjer Secret Stan,
There are rules to uphold.

First fill out this form,
To give us a peek,
At who's bedroom window,
Outside we will sneak.

On November First,
The pairing will start,
There's no limit to cost,
But it should come from the heart.

Should questions you have,
Or fears grip your chest,
Just message Trichy Claus,
And it will be addressed.

Once your package arrives,
It's all up to you,
If you wait for that day,
Of the Christmas revue.

But should you decide,
To tear into your toys,
No judgement you'll find,
Just post pics. Share the joy!

It's time to cut loose,
To ruin their stockings,
To creep on their Steam list,
So let's get to stalking.

So you'll hear me exclaim,
As I ride Muderbutt out of sight,
"Don't send sh*t through the mail,
upon which they'll indict!!!"

In, as always. Still owe Eleima a gift from last year, may get to deliver it in person next spring for the all-time latest Secret Stan gift ever.

That was a lot of work already! I am in

I picked 'option 1' for untitled question since it was the only option...I hope I answered right!

Sign me up!

In.

ok. tentatively i'm going to say "in" with one big caveat:

there's zero chance of me being able to buy a lot of cool physical stuff this year, i'll probably barely have enough for close family unless some profitable jobs materialise in the next month or so. HOWEVER...rumour has it I'm quite good at "the art", so chances are what i'll maybe do this year is some sort of art-based package.

Not quite sure WHAT at the moment, but i'm sure i'll think of something

So yeah, for now at least i'm an "in"

In for sure

So, who's going to bribe me to make sure they get pyxistyx this year? I don't have a lot of power in this world, so I do intend to abuse what little I have.

I was going to post "for information" the demensions have for a spot where I would love some video game art.

Below the TV but above the shelf that holds the consoles is kind of a dull wasteland.

I am in. Remember, fellow Goodjers: I like hearing from you. That's special whatever form it takes.

Please sign up Kiri. I didn't realize it was Dr. Incurable logged in my computer. Doc may post his own.

Sigh. Fine, I'm in. But only under protest, you hear? Damn whippersnappers with their secret Christmas games...

You don't owe me anything. <3 You'd already spoiled me silly.

In. If Lowes can have their decorations up already, I can start planning as well.

No gum for me. Not enough teeth.

Wait, we're all having an affair with Trichy Claus? What will Mrs. Claus think?

Oh, and BJ's Wholesale Club figures that Christmas trees are "Halloween Favorites."

Eh. She's watched this debacle unfold for long enough to already be pretty sure that the only way it ends is with a cult-like bacchanal.

Here's the list so far. If you're not on it and should be, PM me.

Dude. I was like the second person to respond.

Okay, several people who should be on the list aren't. If you're missing, resubmit your information on the form, and I'll check again in a bit. If that doesn't work, I'll curse the gods and figure it out.

The small gods might not like that

I want to sign up, but there is a non-zero chance that I'll be moving before the end of the year. How easy/difficult is it to update answers to the survey?
