I'm starting to send out PMs now. If you entered into our Secret Santa but don't hear from me in the next hour, send me a PM.

I guess it's that time of year where we post our wishlists. :p

Amazon fully reveals my love of pretty books this year.

My Pinterest probably reveals a lot about me as a person as well. :p Apparently I'm a rockabilly dinosaur lover.

@Celt Z - I just get up earlier than everyone else. (And I also have to learn to use the @ sign correctly, it seems.)

I don't have an amazon wishlist that's up-to-date, but basically if it's vaguely blasphemous, I'm in.
I've got Buddy Christ, wind-up Jesus (with real walking on water action!), WWJ Wear magnets (from a SS from here I believe).
Or anything for kitties or featuring kitties.
And if you can find a kitty-based religious icon, then, well, that just combines my interests now doesn't it.
Or pretty dice for D&D. You can never have too many dice.

@Far, I suck at choosing gifts, so I'm going to need some hints.

@PatrThom HALP! I've skulked through the last two years of Santa-ing, and stalked your recent posts. Do you have any allergies? Any candy-related likes or dislikes? And do you have any time to read these days? And are you still a size L in t-shirts? And is there any particular passion or interest that needs more things? Any suggestions or thoughts you may have would be super appreciated.

Hmmm and I'm just as bad at picking things!

Uhh...I'm not picky. I like Books, sci-fi mostly. Current favourite is the Red Rising series. Graphic novels too and I don't have many, Marvel stuff typically but not solely. Loved things like Maus and Watchmen.

League is my most played game but if you're in the states I don't think I can use your cards they sell in retail locations. I have so many games at this point I'd rather not add to the back log but it may be helpful to get an idea of what I like, genrewise:

Www.steamcommunity.com/id/mazerrack88/games

Food is good too if it's easy to ship and I don't have any restrictions to worry about.

I hope this helps!

Do you have any allergies?
Stupidity.
Any candy-related likes or dislikes?
I have previously expressed a fancy for Marathon/Curly Wurly candy bars, but am trying to cut back on sugary snacks and such.
do you have any time to read these days?
I wish! I mean, I'm not against books, but these days I only average something like 2hrs/day when I'm not obligated to do something for somebody else (or just chores).
are you still a size L in t-shirts?
Yes, and plan to be so forever, if I can manage it.
is there any particular passion or interest that needs more things?
If you were to ask my wife, she would emphatically say, "Hell no!"
Any suggestions or thoughts you may have would be super appreciated.
Hmm. I definitely don't need any more computer stuff at the moment*. I'm good on socks and underwear for now, I already have box sets of Brisco County Jr. and Firefly (complete with Serenity), I already bought myself a new otoscope, and most of the other "Oooh yeah I'd really like one of those!" stuff is well beyond the 2-digit price threshold. I wanted to put up a list of the handful of movies I've actually seen, but that didn't get done in time, sorry. I don't wear jewelry and don't have any piercings (and in no rush to start) and I spend anywhere from 2-3hrs/day behind the wheel of my car on a good day. Also no taxidermied butterflies/moths, please.
That said, there's still plenty of room for things you might want to share, like T-shirts & treats, a novelty towel or bathrobe (even an ordinary one, I don't currently have one). I still haven't acquired any miracle berries, I still drink anywhere from 1qt-1/2gal of (black, usually spiced) tea every day, I don't have any (region 1) Night Court DVDs yet, I'm looking for a new snowbrush/scraper combo since my 5yr old one finally broke, I could use a new day-to-day belt (size 34in), I've been looking for what seems like forever for a small (LED) flashlight that will automatically turn itself off after 30 minutes or so if you forget (or fall asleep) and leave it on, and I will never say no to a generous jug of Grade B er, I mean Grade A Dark/Robust maple syrup.

Let me try to answer that for him...

Yes. Yes. No. Don't know but probably. Yes. :awesome:

@Wahad You got wishlist there, amigo?
If you mean an amazon wishlist, no, as I don't use amazon generally, given that I have no creditcard. I thought I added a list of things I wanted in the pm, but just in case it didn't get through, see below.

Gift restrictions: None, really. Sex themed gifts I don't mind, I guess, but I've no use for 'em so probably not a good use of money. Alcohol is good though.

Wishlist:
- Any local specialty to the gifter (food- or drink-wise, provided it ships well, local craft beers are always good) or something promoting the local town (glasses, knick-knacks, etc.)
- Cool-looking RPG dice (not much use for weird game-specific dice like Fate dice or w/e so standard selections are fine).
- Otherwise, surprise me.
Things I probably should've added in the pm:

Other things I like: books (cookbooks or fantasy/scifi mostly. Recently have been meaning to get around to Norse Mythology by Gaiman but haven't time to order it yet). Webcomics I like: Kill Six Billion Demons, Gunnerkrigg, Rice Boy/Order of Tales/Vattu. Though I have no particular interest in owning hardcopy books of those, other merch is cool. Critical Role merch would also be rad. (Note that I have no real idea how expensive any of that is so it might not be viable). I'm a size L in case shirts are a thing you want to do.

Hopefully this is more clear, Senor Santa Secret?

@PatrThom Your goodies have been ordered. You may have to sign for one... or not. The seller was mysterious about that. There are two separate shipments.
I hope you enjoy them!

@Dirona I've been notified your packages might be delayed due to weather in Mirabel, PQ. So one or both of them might not make it on friday.

@Dei , the package is going to be one the way once the elves in the Amazon building get it done. It will possibly be two packages, according to the site, it will be a total of 3 items. Possible delivery between Saturday and Tuesday. I'll post if there in anything that pops up about changes.

I just wanted to thank my "Secret" Santa, @Far , for the gift. I can't put a picture up of it since it's one of the things on my Steam wish list. Now, though, I've got to get off my ass & put up my Vive so I can PLAY the game...

Skyrim VR!

FUS ROH THANKS!

@LittleSin : your package should arrive in 6-13 business days. Please excuse the notes. I may have left my sense of humor in my other Santa suit. I'm actually aware of what it's all about. Also, I forgot to put my name on the packing slip, so good luck guessing which Halforumite with a crappy sense of humor was your Santa!

I'm couldn't figure out how to make Steam send it anonymous, if it's even an option.

It was your most recently added game, on there as of last month, so I hoped you actually did want it. There is something physical on the way too but it's likely going to ship a bit later and I wanted to make sure you got something in time.

Have fun!

Oh fuck. Everyone on this forum has a crappy sense of humor!

...It can be literally anyone.

I got a surprise delivery today! Yay!!

2 very light Amazon boxes, which I don't recall ordering.

Suspicious bags! From Santa Bandit, and judging by the notes (which I didn't take pictures of, but they were all very tasteful), there's a theme.

There is indeed a theme! Two very nice metal d20s (silver and gold as befits the season), and a rolling tower with catching area (which when first used rolled a 20 and a 17)

Thank you Santa Bandit! You did good, I look forward to using them all.
