    I'm not actually going to buy something (unless you all change my mind). I have some parts/books left over from school that I believe my person would enjoy. I'm going to include a ton of random parts so they can do what ever they want with them (ambiguous enough?). The value is well over $25 new, and they all work fine.

    Sent today. Delivery estimate for Monday!

    I hope this person likes what they get. They didn't post in the interests thread so I had a lot of freedom :D

    I just ordered my stuff today and it should be here around the 14th. Then I'll ship it out as soon as possible so I'm hoping it'll be there by the 24th at least. And if it's not there by the 24th, I'll PM Tassia to let the person know that it's on the way. I ain't no deadbeat, that's fo' sho'!

    i looked in the interests thread (the one stickied at the top of the off topic forum). besides admonishments about people sending in their addresses and a remark about used panties you didn't post any interests. sorry you didn't like the gift - they're two of the best books i read last year.

    haha! I don't want to be the party pooper. Thanks, really Travisty! I just don't know when I'll get the will to read as a leisure activity again.

    Since I'm a researcher and I have to read books and articles every day or so, I don't feel like opening a book back at home, that's all.

    My 2nd item just shipped out... to me! Ordered on the 5th, and I don't want to ship two separate orders. It'll be out soon enough.

    no worries, no harm done. just next time let us know if you don't want something for ss if you're going to be all sad about it.

    Just FYI, can whoever got me forward tassia the expected delivery date and have her relay it to me because I live in an apt. and I don't want the package sitting outside. I can leave a note and have the courier leave it in the storage room next to the apt.

    thx

    hem... check the interests thread?

    It's clearly stated: no books please :)

    Again, no problem. I'll read them when the time comes. Books are timeless after all.

    Got mine today. It's a space pen.
    I guess I did say I wanted a pen....

    Thanks Will.

    I really don't mean to be a dick here, but this is kinda why I didn't do SS last year and probably won't next year. I get the feeling most of us just look at the interest list and then ship the first fitting thing they see on amazon or think geek...
    I mean, yeah. Sure, this is probably a nicer pen than most others I've owned, but theres an astronaut floating through space on the box. Not really what I was thinking originally.

    But none the less, thanks Will. It's not like I won't be using it.

    I said a nice pen.
    I got a toy pen.

    I mean, I don't really know what to say. I understand it's December and it automatically makes you a dick if you complain about something Christmas related, but I'm just saying, it's my second 'underwhelming' SS experience (coincidently my last one was Will too). Plus it's hard to buy gifts for essential strangers.

    Like I said, I'll use the pen. But it's pretty obvious that I don't have beneficent soul that SS requires if I get all butt hurt about what I end up with.

    LOL

    This thread seems to be full of fail...

    On that note, Merry Christmas!

    :D

    I probably shouldn't say anything, but I think you should wait a few days. I think you'll end up sticking your foot in your mouth.

    Haha. Okay. Thanks for the heads up.
    I really don't mean to be a dick, cause Wills a great dude. It's just been one of those days, and I came home to find my roommate had opened the package and the pen just sitting on the counter. Suffice to say it was a little bit lack luster of a SS on my end :p

    Why she would open a package addressed to Scooby is beyond me.
