    Such a roller coaster of emotions this morning. I was working Friday. Home with the little one today. A little after noon I go to put some stuff in the car ready to leave and I find 2 xmas cards and a notification slip from the postman. A it cheeky as I was in all morning. So the bastard didn't ring. The slip actually says we tried to deliver on the 21st. Your package is available at *nearby shop* from the 24th.
    So I'm confused since there was no slip Friday at all.
    I was very excited available for pickup means I have it in the nick of time for xmas. Then I see the shops opening times: until 12:30 and then again from 14:00. It's 12:15 and with a car to pack up and a three year old to get ready still, 15 minutes doesn't seem like enough time. Boo.
    Actually they're closed on Monday as well. So no gift anyway.
    By the time I'm ready to go it's actually 12:23, so I think "fuck it! Let's swing by there to check". Turns out they're open today! Yaaaaay. Secret santa is saved.
    Once in there though they couldn't find the bloody thing in their system. It won't be available for pick up u til Wednesday or Thursday. Boooo!
    On the bright side. With christmas gone I'll still have a gift to look forward to! \0/

    As Christmas is here, I have also opened my secret santa pressie. I scored a christmas tie, some tinsel and a santa hat. And for awesomeness a copy of World War Z and a mug that proudly proclaims to the world that "I love my penis" which is completely true, my penis is awesome.

    Cheers Santa.

    Just opened my package and was disappointed at the lack of a colon snake. Still my Santa more than made up for it with a copy of On Writing by Stephen King, some fizzy candy and a grow your own Jesus.

    Thanks Santa and Merry Christmas everyone!

    New salt and pepper pot thanks to my Santa. The old Cyprus souvenir pots will now be demoted. Missus thinks they're cute too so extra brownie points for not alienating me from my nearest and dearest.

    I received an enlightening book on the very real affliction of turrets. It turns out that it affects the animal kingdom just as much as the office (well, my office). An extremely harrowing and emotional read, it goes into great detail, highlighting the most troublesome cases ever recorded.

    To lighten the mood I was also blessed with a game controller for smart phones. I'm planning on digging out some Ultimate spectrum 'roms' later in the week and giving Marvin a whirl with it :champ:

    Thanks a lot secret santa - truly great gifts! I don't know how you do it, year after year, depositing the contents of your sack over me :)

    Haha, don't worry man. I figured if It didn't come by Friday I'd picking it up after xmas which is fine. But then the confusing slip, the disappoitnment that I wouldn't get to the shop on time, the realisation the shop is closed on Mondays, the "a fuck it I'll swing by on the off chance" and the excitement of seeing the shop open and having gotten there with three minutes to spare... Exciting morning.

    Xmas is now extended a bit for me which is fine by me. :-)

    /hums jingle bells for two more days

    Some fun sounding gifts so far!

    Thanks, Santa!

    Just opened a parcel with...

    Mints that come in an awesome little Death Star replica tin.

    A totally cool PacMan stress ball, and...

    A 3D tetris puzzle that fits in a square case, right up until the point where you take the pieces out and then can't get them back in the box. I confidently predict that will have driven me abso-fucking-lutely mental by January 1st!

    Excellent! Muchos gracias!

    Edit.

    Also, the tetris box had a mini King Boo phone charm thingy attached to the ribbon, which was completely cool!

    Picked it up today. A lego tie fighter thatngot me more excited than permisable for a grown man. Some chocolate and Scribblenauts for DS. Very excited about that. I remember being very tempted when it came out as it looked really cool. I've since located the DS and it's charger. I just got home from badminton. It's fully charged. Just need to pack my bag for the next few days away and then I can fire it up!

    Thanks Secret Santa El_Muerko!

    I know there are still three people who are gift-free. I'll start doing a bit of detective work over the next few days, and find out what's going on.

    I shall own up to being WeakOrbit's Santa.

    And if anyone's interested, this is the CPU Top Trumps he was talking about.

    I found them being sold at an anime / gaming convention earlier in the year, and I do have a spare pack if anyone really, really wants them.*






    *If there is more then one claimant, then we'll have a competition!
