Yay, one of the few people to still use my old nickname from WoW! Hmm, no murderbutts, must have escaped before the box hit the frozen tundra, cowards!

Yay, the baby of Yoda's species! Not saying name in case someone still hasn't seen that episode He'll keep me company on my desk as I work from home, hopefully doesn't try to steal anything.

Ohhh, very nice, wish I had this when I installed the vinyl plank in my basement this summer, because old school tools are better in most cases than new digital ones.

Ohhh, looking forward to trying this when its warm enough to grill outside again. Sounds really yummy!

Final gift to open, perfect size as I don't drink much, this might wind up in my coffee some weekend! Or weekday if work is really being stressful!

One last photo, a cute dog named Mable was wondering what I was doing messing with stuff on the table and there was no food on the table.

Thanks for the haul SillyRabbit! I appreciate the thought that went into each and every one of these gifts! Getting them now was a nice spirit lifter in a month that is traditionally low for me.

I'm glad you liked it Stormy!

The ornament's called a God's Eye, Ojo de Dios, you can find some interesting history and lore about them online. They've been used as blessing votives and even as portals for shaman. I remember making them in Girl Scouts as a kid, but was reminded of them recently in pictures from Mexico where they're a popular decoration on Christmas trees.

Check out that Lego set online, apparently there's another build or two. A whale for sure. I hope you have hours of fun with it! Hope the cat doesn't steal the teeth, they look awesome.

The contour gauge came from your Amazon wish list, and it looked pretty cool, so, I got one for me too. I'm certain to eventually have need of it. So, thanks for that.

Hope you like the barbecue sauce, and yes, the Bourbon Cream is truly meant for coffee! It's delicious!

I'm glad this late Stanmas gift brightened your day, it brightened my day to know it was delivered and well received!

Guess which keyboard I'm typing this thank you on!

Thank you so much, ET... or should I say Everything's Tentative? It takes some getting used to writing in Qwerty again after some years with an Azerty board, but for gaming - especially those with WASD layouts it's SO much better. Plus: clickity clack sounds!

I might need to switch to Azerty occasionally for typing French for work, but that's just a clickity CTRL-SPACE clack away. Thanks mate!

(and yes my youngest was a bit tired and also a bit of a drama llama at times. But only I get to say that)

Wow that got there a lot faster than Amazon said it would. I hope you like it. I wish I had more time to stalk, I would have gotten those two adorables a little something.

From that angle, the bottoms of the keycaps look like they stick up, and I was thinking that it looked like a very sophisticated abacus.

Henceforth my keyboard shall be known as "The Abacus".

(the keycaps do stick out and it's georgeous)

I guess what I meant was that the lights in between the keys looked like they were sticking up. The keys fade into the background, and it kinda looks like you're supposed to slide the lights toward and away from the spacebar. The effect is particularly strong around the keypad in the foreground of the box shot.

Dear Stantee, you are not forgotten I just got the last piece, so I will be posting it this week.
