Also, I ended up getting the Vader and Son book for two of my friends. I flipped through out of curiosity. It's good times.

Same here.

I sent my stuff out yesterday. There is some Steam stuff to settle will take care of that in a few days.

Ok. Apparently the package is out for delivery. We shall see if I completely screwed up or not later.

Getting ready to ship my stuff out -- waiting on Amazon, Etsy, and a few other bits to come in. REDACTED, I expect you'll be receiving your gift on or close to the Christmas holiday itself.

Glad you like them SillyRabbit!

You may or may or may not have mentioned something about liking Shakespeare in a post on here several years back.

I declare, Feliz Vinniedad must be the new goodjer holiday greeting!

My package should be showing up around nowish and I'm super pumped to see what my Stantee thinks.

My hope:

We must scour the Frarking Frogohs thread to see if we can mix the two even further together.

Or a mixture of multiple memes. Shalalm Vinnierbomb!

Thirded. Now I feel inferior. I didn't go all out, but simply looked at the list of things my victim wanted, and chose what I knew I wouldn't have to bid and haggle for on eBay because they are old/rare.

I don't think anyone should feel inferior here. It's all in good fun. As long as you sent something out, you did great. I like the way we have it here, with a floor but no ceiling. I do wonder if having no ceiling makes people nervous, though, and if they can't get as much enjoyment out of this because of that. I hope that's not the case.

My only regret is my ongoing lack of a kukri from Paleo

Now, now, let's not become the anointed sovereigns of sighs and groans (heehee, thanks Shakespeare and fleabagmatt). Although, I, too, am wondering if my gift choices are going to be as happily received. I changed my mind even after purchasing one thing and swapped it out for another. I'm not sure how close to the mark I'll hit, but I count on my Stantee appreciating the thought and effort that went into it and hoping that he or she gets some joy out of the deal.

Or, I'll just take the Paleo stance and tolerate no complaints!

That is some dedicated stalking! I know because I tried to go there with my Stantee pouring over hundreds of pages searching for a nugget. Nice job all around fleabag!

Stalking really is a great word for it, I'm almost a little creeped out about the thought of someone digging through my old posts. Almost, but not quite.

As far as choices: not only are goodjers super perceptive at gift giving, they are a super grateful lot, too. Everything has seemed awesome previous years, and I'm sure this year will be no different. I'm sure you both did fine. I've loved all my gifts in the last few. Shout-out to Eezy_Bordone and Panda Eskimo.

This times 1000!

Don't feel bad. This year's victim got no Krissmess Kukri either, which means that there is one left to send out next year. Who knows? It could be you.

Indeed, Feliz Vinniedad!!

If I'd been your victim, I would've complained about the color of the box it was shipped in, because I enjoy poking bears.

Gotham is only a three hour drive away.

I am still dying to find out how my victim receives the Krissmass Kukri replacement gift.

According to the fine folks at UPS my box of goodies will deliver Monday-ish. When you open the package don't be alarmed by the wrapping paper, it's all I had.

I show that the package was left at the front door. Now we wait.

Not everyone even wraps the presents because life is hard.

...I wish I had wrapped mine now...

For multiple reasons, actually. Although the smell would have given one of them away.

I used old drawings of my son's for packing material. I wonder if Bonus noticed.

I did, actually. Did you want those back, or were they for me to keep?

Someone here will be a winner soon.

Yeah, I'm curious if I can open the box when I get mine or if I should just shove the whole thing under the tree.

You received unwrapped presents, Eezy? Or you sent them out unwrapped? If the latter, you have an eponysterical excuse.

I'm glad you received it. I actually shipped from the office as we get a pretty good discount when we do that, so not sure what address it shipped out of.

I just want to be clear - if I am your Santee, I will not force you to wait until xmas to see pictures of me hamming it up while opening your gift.
