As pseudo-founder of this thing, I'm in, of course.

(and damn you sX, I was waiting all week for the 1st to roll around so I could post this, but you beat me to the punch. Damn blitzkrieg.)

I'll put up a FAQ for those who haven't been part of this before later this week.

I'm totally in this year. I think I've done it for the past three years.

First year I sent a desk fan that plugs in to the USB port (and I think a few other things).
Second year, my santee said they had a gothic theme at their home, so I sent a gothic toilet bowl brush (Hey they can't have that yet can they?).
Third year, I sent my santee a copy of the Pirates! game by Sid Meier.

This year I intend to do much better than the previous three.

One thing for people who actually receive your gift: Please at least acknowledge that you got it. One of the years, my santee didn't even post a thank you and to this day I have no idea if he or she got it.

I have not yet sent out confirmations, but it looks like everyone who has posted in this thread has been received plus a few who haven't posted.

I still plan on sending out confirmations. Just been very busy since I got home from China.

Emails going out now over the next hour or so..

I have added a request for read reciept in the email so please click yes to acknowledge the receipt.


If you do not receive your Santee email within the next 2 hours please post here.

Aidden
11-30-06, 06:56 PM
All emails are now out.

If for some reason you are not prompted for a return receipt due to your email client, please click the reply button and then send. That will be enough for me to know you got it.

Also the first couple of emails that went out will be from my Speakeasy email account. Thats me.


Check your spam folders.


Have fun!

Got 3 new books! All from the Dragon riders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey, none of which I have read before. But I hear it's a really good series.

Dragonflight, Dragonquest, and Dragonsdawn

Thanks bunches Santa! (innur)

P.S. Double thanks for not including a Camel Spider!

You'll probably get hooked on the whole series like I did so many years ago.

Got mine. I actually had it for a while, but decided not to open it until after I had shipped my stuff out.

Got Penny Arcade books. Unfortunately, I already had bacon robots, but I'll figure something out with it.

Once we're past the send out date, I'll hopefully remember to post on this years gift searching experience.

At least the Magic Sword Kings is new territory. Give the other one to the local library, they probably need fresh stuff. Meow.

You will probably get something around the new year. I hope that's ok.

A big thanks to DORLA for the lovely scented candles (I'm a total candle nut. You should SEE how many candle holders I have that I can put them in! Lovely scents, and I'm noot allergic to them, which is the best part), dipping spices (num!), and a Capt. Dan and the Scurvy Crew Authentic Pirate Hip-Hop album(haven't listened yet, but I'm sure it's a real hoot)

The return address on the box gave me my first hint, the corporate swag from TD Ameritrade inside confirmed my guess. :wink

You will be the envy of your co-workers with that flag! Also, that CD is very very good (surprisingly). I listen to it all the time. :kroe

Take your time I know how hard it is to lose a loved one.

Sorry I didn't post until now, but we went out of town. I got my gift on the 22nd, which happened to be my birthday so that was twice as nice. Santa sent me Trivial Pursuit - 80's Edition. :kroe We took it to the in-laws house and played it with my husband's brothers and wives, it was a good time. The questions are a lot harder than you'd think.

Thanks Santa Nocte!! I'll be sure to have a beverage from my Plasma Beer Mug you got me a couple years ago, next time we play. :)

I got some items from thinkgeek.com:

Pirate mug. (http://www.thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/mugs/78fb/) I have used this several times for hot cocoa, and it's a great mug. Larger than my standard ones I have at home but not too large to be freakish. It retains heat well also.

Giant microbe liquid soap dispenser. (http://www.thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/gear/8165/) Very cute :) Thank you Santa.

Got a package today (my santa contacted me before hand, so I knew it'd be late)- the Rumbling Hearts "Starter Set". I LOVED Kimi ga when I first watched it, and I always love supporting anime brought to the US, so I'm really happy with this present ^_^.

And Bereal, I actually had a different present originally (including a roll of Jack Thompson toilet paper), but they didn't like my billing zip code for some reason o_0. Glad you haven't played Icewind Dale yet though, that was my main worry about that present.

Kinare is a very kick ass Secret Santa!

I'm laughing so hard at all the snakes in the box. There has to be a dozen plastic snakes in all which will go well with the zoo of rubber lizards I keep on my desk at work.

Also a mini martini shaker with drinking game rules. Very cool.

A deck of Invisible Cards, which I very nearly bought for myself in November so I'm glad I got them.

A flip chart of saying for my desk with saying like "Leave me alone, I'm not being rude you're just insignificant.".

A 365 day calendar of places you should visit before you die. I hadn't bought myself a calendar yet so this is also very handy, and pretty damed cool to boot.

A Kombat Kars computer game. Daughter and I will have fun shooting things.

And a Santa hat, with a snake taped to it.

All in all very fun, and funny gifts. I'm extremely happy!

Yay! I'm glad you liked it all :) Sorry again for the wait.

LOL Yeah I did. I was laughing so hard the entire time I was opening everything. It was so cool.

My wife is threatening to steal the calendar.

The wait wasn't a big deal at all.

I think I got Aidden as my Secret Santa, cuz my website is still up and running.

Otherwise I'm feeling all left out and stuff :x

I'm going to reveal that I was braincandy's Santa (which is strange, because I sent it from San Francisco, not Cupertino, wherever the hell that is), cause I have no idea who mine was and I want to know :)

That was me. The post office made me put a return address on it, although they didn't balk at it coming from Santugg. Postage was a bit higher than I had expected, next year I'm sending strikebreakers to pay a visit to those reindeer.

The books were from a clearance sale over the summer. Had I actually thought about it at the time, I could have stocked up a better selection. Didn't have much leeway as I was running up to the limit, so the once-read books went in the box.

One thing I ran into that I didn't end up getting was a Pop Up Pirate game. Oddly enough it was an imported version at the store with the Totoro. Maybe I can put that on a watch list and people forget I mentioned it, then it will be all new and exciting next Frostfell. You also dodged the bullet on Sneak King.

Thanks Estebar! :) I'd almost forgotten how much I love a good, pulpy fantasy story. Must confess, I'm glad to have gotten La Pucelle instead of Sneak King. Turn-based strategy > terrible, terrible nightmares :lol

Glad you liked yours, Braincandy!

Since it's already February and all, I'm pretty sure my santa's been abducted by aliens

Are you serious? I was later in December than I wanted to be sending it out, but Christ - I sent it around maybe the 16th of December. I hadn't said anything before cuz I was trying to keep the secret part of the secret santa =( That sucks hard.

It never got returned to me - it should have come as requiring a signature...I dunno. I'll see if I can find the tracking number, but its been a while.

Well, it got obviously caught in the bermuda triangle on the way to here. Don't worry about it Sol, thanks for being my santa :)
