Vaughn, you also had a shirt that we were all signing, and tracking down a certain... ginger crewmember took longer than it ought to.

Anyway it's signed and sent now, but it didn't go in the same batch so it's not "late", it just isn't there yet. Sorry!

Everything is going in waves, so some people won't be seeing their auction items for a while yet.

Yeah. They have to wait until they get paid each week before sending the next wave of packages.

Haha. No, it's just a lot of work.
Jim, for the same ginger-related reasons, your package went out with Vaughn's. It's a race!!

There are four signatures that I can't begin to read. To whom do the following signatures belong:

"It's for the kids"
"Time for a story"
The duck
"Burn after reading"


Time for a story is.. Paul,? The Duck is Jer(obviously. =P), For the kids is.... Woody? Im not sure who Burn After reading could be.

Is now a good time to let everyone know that it took MY package about 2 1/2 weeks to reach LRR, thus probably it'll take close to the same amount for some of the packages to go to America?

Has Octopimp's stuff been sent out yet? I remember him saying that the stuff he won was all Christmas gifts. It would be unfortunate if it didn't arrive before Christmas.

I know how stuff from the States travels and how long it takes to get to where I live due to family over there. So I'm optimistically hoping to see my box of auction swag sometime around February but I'm going to expect it to arrive closer to March.

Really? I have been shipping to the UK and of all places Switzerland lately, and using the cheapest possible shipping from USPS, shit still gets there in a week o.O. Can't Imagine the Canuckian Postal Service being worse than the US's...

Admittedly a bit late to post, but I was rather happy when I recieved my collector's edition of the PA game a couple weeks ago, and truly am I blessed among men. For not only was it signed by the hothead games guy whose name escapes me and whose signature is doctor-esque in its unreadability, but mine was and always will be the only one signed by Brad. Now, excuse me for a moment while I bask in its awesomeness.

I was awakened today by my doorbell, an uncommon occurrence in itself. But what did I see out the window when I rushed to the door but a postman leaving my doorstep & a large box on my porch! My heart leapt in hopes that Story Guy had arrived... But the box was too big. Far too big.

It was actually my replica of Professor Angell's Box, from the H.P. Lovecraft Historical society, ordered two months ago. Which, arguably, is just as cool. Now I'll have something to read until Story Guy actually does arrive.

Sorry if scratching out the signatures annoys anyone, but I'd really rather not see this mysteriously popping up on eBay.

Edit: I remember someone mentioned during DB they wanted to see a high rez copy. Since Photobucket has a cap here's the raw scan (all 10MB of it): http://thirtythreeas.com/pictures/valueaddedokami.png

Yeah, I noticed when I found the link again. It wasn't $300 when I ordered it so I lucked out on that.

*shrugs* What we're sent though is quite a large box (as in, almost too big to carry) and I think they take longer to get through customs and sending etc. It generally takes a few months for them to get to us from the States.

@Siobhan I live in Scotland. I think US to Canada should be fine ;)

I definitely read that as "Someone I know sent their daughter in a Christmas package..." and I was at once horrified and impressed with their smuggling ingenuity.

I feel goofy since I overslept, and have been reading everyones posts wrong today. It has been a mix of sheer horror and hilarity.

I wasn't around for those auctions, and even if I was, I have no monies.
