The Official Atari Age Secret Santa 2021 thread

Recommended Posts

The Christmas tree is up.  Some presents are already gathering around the bottom (thanks to my wife).  Still waiting on the one from my Secret Santa, but now there is a home for it when it gets here.

Great to see packages going out! I'm still waiting on a couple of items for my recipient to come in, and then I'll get mine in the mail.

 

Looking forward to seeing what everyone gets!

I'm back home so if my Secret Santa has not mailed mine yet, feel free to do so. :)

Ebay indicates that I should have my main gift for my Secret Santa person coming to me on Wed.  Once I get it I'll include it in the box with the other goodies and send it out on Thursday or Friday.  Should be more then enough time to get to Canada.

My last 2 "finishing touches" are out for delivery to me right now. I should be able to box it up and get it on it's way by the 2nd (my next paycheck). :)

Been busy at work, but my package is ready to go and I'll take it to the post office tomorrow.  I'm in a better position this year so the box is back to it's usual goodies for me. ;)

My package was sent on it's way today via the post office.

 

I also have found out I'm supposed to get MY package on Monday. I'll rip into that sucker as soon as I get it! ;)

Blasphemy! Although, I was one the earliest to break the "wait until close to Xmas" unwritten rule last year 😄

I ripped into mine on day one! I just need to post some pictures.

 

My kids were so jealous last year that I couldn’t do that to them again this year.

I'm in the same boat.  At first I thought, no problem, I can wait it out.  Then I found myself just looking at it and wondering...  It's sort of like the Tell-Tale Heart but without the haunting and guilt :)

I am going to try to hold off until Xmas eve...so midnight on the 23rd.  Very unsure I can handle it. :)

Not today!  (You play a hellava game, CyranoJ)   ... I JUST got my tree up.. and this box is going under it as soon as all the lights are done.

 

I want to stare at it for several days before I leave and when I get home.  I know I'm going to have a huge smile on my face each time I do.

 

(I work retail, and this ought to be therapeutic besides.  I'll take all the free therapy I can get!)

Schrodinger's cat?  Was it alive or dead before being shipped?  This brings us back to the Necronomicon from last year.  Best not to think about it then.:lolblue:
