OCR Secret Santa 2014

Recommended Posts

Having some problems with PayPal right now, but as soon as that's taken care of, my gift will be on its way.

EDIT: Should be shipping soon! Hope you enjoy!

I think I've almost got it - could even ship it by Friday if I keep at it. This may be one of my more challenging Secret Santas, but could still be very rewarding.

Oh, crap. Whomever is my Secret Santa: next week is exam week and I don't know what the student mail center's policy is during exam week. While it's probably open, I'm not 100% sure. I'll find out and update this post, as well as give info on what happens to mail received during the winter break (in case it doesn't arrive before the campus closes down).

EDIT: Ok, so as long as my gift arrives before next Friday I should be able to pick it up without issue.

Oh my gosh, I can't wait to hack people's emails and call their loved ones under a false identity to find out what they want.

I am in.

And SENT! Amusingly the gift was cheaper than the actual postage, but frankly I don't care. I'm in good anticipation here in the "awaiting-receiver-response club". 8)

better luck next year? :-(

Try aiming for mid-November, I've noticed that's when this usually pops up.

With this being my first year of OCR Secret Santa, I've got to ask - when are we allowed to reveal to our recipients the identity of their secret santas? Like is that done in the thread once everyone's confirmed their gift has arrived, or what?

Historically people post what they got and who they got it from (or who they think if they're no indication) when they get their gift. Works out well I think.

ok, because I didn't have any way of indicating who I was to my recipient when I had their gift sent.

Just wait until they post about their gift then if you want to reveal yourself.

Gifts sent.

I was going to order striper-grams, but it seems you are no longer allowed to mail people anymore. Plus, the shipping would be like, at least twenty more bucks, and fuck that noise. Not to mention having to give them food and something to read or something for the duration of the delivery route.

Not worth it.

Supposedly the gift will arrive at its destination by Tuesday. That's what the gentleman at the post office told me, anyways. 8)

By Monday, actually. ;-)

Thank you Mr. Flexstyle! Now I've got plenty of music to listen to whilst I procrastinate on studying for finals! :-P

EDIT: on a related note, I just received notice today that my gift has shipped, so they should be arriving soon.

If I ordered incorrectly (you'll know what I mean), let me know so I can commit honorary Sudoku or something like that.

A striper?

Glad I got this out when I did. I might not have been able to later. My main computer has flat out bricked. Recovery chances are nil. I'm going to need a replacement. And I don't know if I'm going to be able to get credit to afford one. So whatever has been sent to me or is going to be sent my way. Thank you in advance. My ability to comment on these forums is going to be severely hampered in the days ahead.

To my secret recipient, I'm still working on your gift, and I'm hoping I'll finish it in time for Christmas!

I was having a rough day at work, so seeing that you got the gift and were excited over it actually turned the whole day around for me :) . Glad to see that everything came intact and you are enjoying the gift!

According to the Royal Mail online tracker, the package has hit my recipient's country. Shouldn't be too long now! :)

Okay, so I made an order with a company I've never used before, and I've sent it international, which I've never done before, and I completely guessed on the gift... Hopefully it gets there around the right time and it's not a complete flop :P
