    Quoted from j_m_:

    lloyd:
    you're in luck. they do have a my little pony, my pony of the month club. I've signed you up so you'll receive an armful of fluffy goodness each month for the next year!! I think that you get a bonus grooming kit with your first pony too!!!

    edit:
    and for those of you that think I'm kidding

    and

    You are still in luck. I haven't found a moth eaten raccoon with a woodie, yet.

    My shopping is done.

    #53 2 years ago

    A couple of packages just arrived for me, but I didn't order anything. I didn't think anything of it, because my sister who lives in Canada will often send me stuff, especially around the holidays for me to bring to her. Assuming that's what it was, I opened the boxes to verify. But then the mystery deepened as the items were gift wrapped, which would be unusual for my sister to do. I finally clued in, that this must be it... I think...

    Even though it's wrapped, it's in a bag, so handling it kind of gives away the category of gift. It seems someone searched my pinside posts and must have noticed something I said. But I'm going to save finding out the exact item until Christmas Eve when I celebrate with the family.

    Thank you, Secret Santa, you sure are on the ball getting your work done early, and even getting it wrapped!

    Awesome. I've actually had a lot of people contact me and say they shipped out packages already. Way more than I ever thought would ship that quickly. And bravo to whomever searched posts to find something special for you, that's the spirit!

    #55 2 years ago

    We should have set up a 20 days of christmas thing where people open their Secret Santa gifts and post on a certain day leading up to Christmas so we could have a nice steady stream of cool posts to enjoy.

    Quoted from LesManley:

    ^^^This totally. It isn't always the big price tag that makes something cool. Don't stress over it, just put as much thought into it as you can and get what you are comfortable with.

    Lol Don't worry I'm still hooking my guy up I'm mostly just joking at how it seems like everyone is sending out awesome gifts like deeds to mansions and vintage porno collections lmao meanwhile mine is a few nice goodies I'm really excited about all of this! I just about have my package ready to get shipped out!

    No mansion here, although I did go over quite a bit... But it was fun. After doing a bunch of research, I found my person appears to have similar interests to me, so I bought stuff that I would've wanted. Heck, one thing I bought I ordered two of, just so I could have one. Merry Christmas to me!

    You guys are lucky, my person has almost zero online presence, or I just stink at stalking. May need to enlist the help of pete

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    why? pete will just suggest that you purchase an autograph picture of him [from him] and send that

    and not surprisingly, that photo will probably cost you $30

    $10 shipped for a crappy printed off 8x10.

    Will totally autograph and personalize for no extra fee.

    So, my suggestion is to buy three of them. Your wife and/or mom will want one, too.

    So I got my Secret Santa gift already. It came in a pretty heavy USPS box. I was going to wait to open it, but that lasted all of an hour. Wow I hit the jackpot! Pinball, Nintendo, Star Trek, and baseball (the cards are from the Colorado Rockies, my favorite team), couldn't ask for more than that! The "Now You're Playing With Power" in the back of the picture is a cool t-shirt and the rolled up thing on the right is a signed (Jersey Jack) Hobbit poster from Pinball Star. I think I'm going to frame the Donkey Kong print and hang it up in the game room.

    Thanks Secret Santa! You absolutely killed it!

    I don't know if my Secret Santa wants to break their silence, but I'd love to know the story behind the Wacky Packages Trex card. It looks like it's signed by the artist. Is it one of five?

    Thanks again,
    Luke

    Nice haul! To keep it secret if your secret santa wants to just message me and let me know the history on the signed Wacky Packages I can then post the response.

    Here's the response I got from your SS...

    "The card is a promo from a Sci-Fi parody set of cards which turns them into cereal boxes. It was hand signed by the artist 1/5, figured it technically tied into his Star Trek TNG Pinball Machine since Spock appeared on the show.

    Oh, and tell him to open the Space Invaders bank for one last small treat!"

    Awesome. The card is very cool and we found the treats in the Space Invaders bank (which is also very cool).

    Thanks again,

    #89 1 year ago
    Quoted from pmWolf:

    Dumb question, but why keep the SS identity secret?
    Gonna be hard to hide that one when they open up that autographed 8x10 of me...

    I think you're forgetting the 100 copies you "gifted" me that one birthday. ...I've been regifting them ever since. Alright, recipients, now there are two possibilities for secret santas when you receive your sparsely clad PMWolf 8x10" glossy.

    I've been meticulously illustrating bow ties, top hats, and undergarments on all the pron you sent me. Hope you enjoy your regift.

    #91 1 year ago

    Of course you guys all realize that the recipient of my SS gift will know who it’s from by process of elimination since all of you are logging your gifts as sent early and mine is sure to arrive around Dec 23-24th based on my lifelong proscatination skills.

    They will not know if it is you or me so anonymity will be good....

    Also Secret Santa no worries if you can’t get my TnA before Christmas...I am patient.

    Quoted from Pinballlew:

    Can I add something to my gift wish list? I mean I really want a TNA Pinball Machine....I hope I get a rich Santa...lol.
    Seriously I am looking forward to doing this and can’t wait to give some cool gifts
    Thank you for organizing everything!
