Secret Santa: Your present arrived before New Years! Just!

And holy cats, it's good. It's so good. And scary. But mostly good!

So I thought I'd do an elaborate unboxing. First, what was in this mysterious envelope at the top of the box?

Image

Answer? Nothing!

So instead I just opened it all up. Inside was a letter that instructed me to open the presents first, since the letter contained spoilers. So noted! I opened up a cornucopia of Wisconsin treats!

An orginal cow pie! (Confectionary version.) Three varieties of cocoa! A Kangaroo Christmas tree ornament! A tiny tiny dragon! A BOTTLE OF MAPLE SYRUP YUM. And ... a ... blue bullwhip?

Image

I am now the owner of the world's only Loading Ready Run themed bullwhip.

AND MAPLE SYRUP YUM.

I hope my santee isnt too disappointed in my gift, every year I struggle to find something find the perfect thing and then say "oh $154.99 may be a bit over the line... Ill keep looking" I finaly get stuff and say "yeah thats pretty good I think they will get a kick out of it"

two weeks later I get mine and start to see what other people got and think "aww man, my santee must be so disappointed, I got them crap!"

I find I do much the same thing. I've got to lift my game.

well maybe next year we can get each other for mutual assured disappointment. Or maybe I got you this year and you are about to be disappointed.

I already got my gift, Lord Hosk! So either it was not you or you underestimate your gift-giving.

Just an update, I sent mine out on the 27th and I haven't seen anything yet, but I got locked out of my house so I haven't been able to check since the 21st. :P Will be back tomorrow most likely.

Finally opened mine! I did indeed get an armadillo, as well as a "guinea pig-sweetener" :P (and a penguin because it's not Christmas without penguins)

Image

EDIT: I just realized the guinea pig squeaks. Must investigate.

A Canada scarf, and a super cool Scarecrow figure, currently lurking on my bookshelves plotting nefarious deeds. Also a nice Christmas card (not pictured).

Thanks Santa!

I am the worst Santa. The next opportunity I have to send out my gift is Thursday, so I'll get it ready to send between now and then. I'm sorry, Santee.

I've finally sent mine. I'm sorry, Santee. I don't think I should be allowed to sign up for the next one.

I received mine a few weeks ago, and took pictures. I'll post them later, if I remember.

So am I correct in saying everyone has received a gift except for Aubergine? Because I want to release the list by the 31st.
