Mario, I am actually not a fan of the puzzle glue stuff. I prefer to revisit my puzzles over and over again, but thank you for the offer. The more I do the puzzle, the faster I get at it!
Again, thank you thank you thank you.
You're very welcome.
And yeah, she gets complemented quite often. I'm sure it looks that much better next to my jumbled mess. HA!
THANK YOU, LILIA!!
My drunk ass apparently didn't see the giant box when I got home last night, so it was a nice surprise this morning. There was so much stuff to unwrap that I ended up being super late to work.
I laughed over the card because it's so Asian. hehehe.
You can bet your ass that this bacon spread is making it to the Christmas appetizer table! The penguin ornament was a pleasant added cuteness to it all. It's sitting very pretty on the mantle (because we don't have a tree).
THE BEER! I can't wait to drink these! I love blonde and pale ales. The Scuttlebutt will be the first one I try. I wonder if I'll be able to resist drinking these until Christmas.

Yay I'm so glad that you received your package, Robin. That is so funny that you didn't even see it when you got home last night. Sorry you were late to work - I thought about it after I shipped it off that maybe I overdid it with the packing, I got carried away with the bubble wrap and packing tape. Happy you enjoy everything. I thought it would be a nice treat to receive some things from my neck of the woods!
I will admit that there was a lot of stuffing in the box, and getting the beers out of the bubble wrap was no easy feat when hungover. However, it was worth the effort. My excitement kept growing with each beer that I unwrapped. My only fear now is that I'm going to LOVE these beers and then get sad because I can't get them around here.
If there are any you end up loving, check out Total Wine - maybe they will have them. If not, just PM me and I can send some down your way! I'd be way down for beer exchanges considering your proximity to some amazing breweries.
Is there a thread for beer exchanges? Secret Santa beer exchanges all year round. That would be exciting.

I wen to outside to get my package from Amazon and, lo and behold, there was a familiar-shaped box waiting for me from SLC! Thanks so much Mitch!
Mitch had three things in the box, all of which are great-A personalized christmas card (I hope I can make it to Coachella as well!), Pavement's Watery Domestic Ep (which is one of two Pavement releases I truly love that I didn't own) and the biggest highlight, Husker Du's Eight Miles High 7". I'm going to play that thing into the ground!
I got my gift! So awesome! Will elaborate/ post photos later.
So, I feel like an asshole... I tried to mail my gift today (shipping to Canada is a bitch), and the Post Office wouldn't take it cause of what I'm sending. I have to go through UPS or FedEx, so I'll be shipping it tomorrow hopefully, given it doesn't cost a ton to ship.
Many apologies to my recipient.
thanks to redhotsgtpeppers for being a bigger asshole than me. i shipped mine out today via the post office. estimated arrival is friday. my apologies to my recipient. and i did receive my gift from cory/FEELS yesterday. thanks for the book Exit Music: The Radiohead Story(updated edition). pics to follow once i find my fucking camera cord
You're welcome dude! I hope you like it
And speaking of Pavement a couple posts above.. I received this awesome Pavement shirt from Geno_g today! Thanks so much man, one of my favorite bands and I've always wanted one of their shirts!
Merry Christmas, Cara!
I should have gotten my Amazon gift in the mail so I can send out for tomorrow. I was going to overnight it for a Saturday arrival. It was only like 1/3 of the present but it was something I wanted to include. I don't know if I should just overnight it Saturday and have it arrive to my person the day after or just send it tomorrow and send the missing link whenever I can. Either way I want to overnight it.
How did the present turn out? Like I said above, I literally jammed that fucker into the box, so I'm hoping it didn't turn out to be a complete cluster.
Any chance that you are going weekend 2 this year? I wish we could go weekend 1 but we have Vb that weekend. If you are, let's have a beer together
With all the fancy gift-wrapping happening in this thread, I want to clarify that the reason your gift isn't technically wrapped has more to do with what it is than it does with my admittedly ham-fisted wrapping skills. I do suck at wrapping, but I had to do it the way I did because...you'll see.
