Addie and I know what we are getting our person, but she is gone to Mexico all this week so it won't get sent until the 19th.  Worth the wait, we hope!

To my SECRENT SNANTA,

I've received confirmation from my family that my Secret Santa gift is at my parent's place.  Once finals are over and I'm home, I'll open it.

(Also, thank you!)

Love my gifts. Will be put to good use. ;) #LegendOfZelda

 

As for my intended target. Due to the request i've had to really rack my brain to figure something out i'm unfortunately failing. I'm going to be putting something together to go out on Friday one way or the other. Sorry its going out so late but paycheck issues are making me take this at a different angle. I have not forgotten :)

Glad you liked it, Hyperion! I wasn't entirely sure what to go for, but figured that you can't go wrong with Zelda, right?

That and League of Legends.

I wouldn't have gotten a League of Legends card for an arbitrary person, but I saw you had some forum posts mentioning that you played it, so that made it easy!

Alright, I AM DONE!  I could say that I beat the post... but barely, if the Royal Mail strikes are anything to go by.  I will make sure this ships tomorrow! D:

And one half of my gift has been sent. Should arrive on Sunday. The second half is a card that will be sent by slow post tomorrow. (And I mean slow. Them Waka's take a long time to go anywhere.)

Have my gift packed and ready to bring to the post office tomorrow, assuming the snow isn't too bad to make it there!

OK, so I'm running into to some slight problems with my secret santa recipient. I may have to go with the backup plan of Steam wishlist fulfillment.

I usually don't go that route unless they specifically state that's what they want. But my current endeavors are not working with me.

I think we'll ALL be anxious at this rate.  I've maintained a spreadsheet for the Secret Santa and I noticed that just less than half of us had checked in with progress on sending our parcels out, while only 3 of them have arrived so far - and with 5 days until Christmas, this is telling me there's less overall enthusiasm than in the previous few years.

Heck, I usually help out a few people that hadn't got their gifts by giving them Steam gifts if they have an account, but that's going to be hard to ease the minds of 21 people excluding myself xD

So, I asked a friend of mine to ship this two weeks ago, which they said they would be happy to do - and then I saw that package sitting on their desk this morning. After raising hell and high water, I have learned not to ask anyone else to ship important packages in the winter season.

My gift will be air-freighted out tonight. I sure hope my person likes their gift, because I'm spending way more than I expected to get it to them in time for Christmas... :)

can provide evidence if needed that my order is in transit. :)

i don't think the delay is strange. this year's biweekly payrolls have landed in awkward places, meaning that if you're waiting for a paycheck to buy stuff (like i did), you either got it on black friday or 12/10, which was much closer to christmas than past years.

My recipient already received theirs. I was a little shocked at how quickly it got there to be honest.
