I will also appreciate it if you can let Skimbers know when you have shipped to me, since I hace to go accross the border to get it.

Due to this sameness of circumstances, I won't be able to ship my gift until next week.

I sent my gift out today. It should get there the week of Christmas (are we still doing the Christmas thing? Because I still am...)

Mexican culture fun time begins: In Mexico City and surroundings, they actually celebrate "Dia de reyes" (the three wise men's day) much more enthusiastically in the form of giving presents to children. There may not be something for Christmas under the tree, but there sure will be on January 6th.

So, you can always say you went at it mexican style if you procrastinate too much ... wait, that sounds mildly racist :D

I'm thinking the official deadline should be..........the second week in January! Sure, that works. I'm a little behind also, but should have something out next week or so.

I had a burst of motivation to finish it, so I should be able to send it out Monday or Tuesday.

O HAI THERE, so sorry, I don't come on here as often as I'd like. I WOULD LOVE TO, SYG!!! But is it too late now? Maybe I can give you a (potentially belated) happy new years gift instead?

Thinking out loud (but silently, as I don't verbally narrate as I type; I think only actors being filmed do that) this is the first time I have ever F5ed a tracking webpage for a package I wasn't receiving. Also, its shortened browser tab amusingly looks like it is censoring profanity.

I know it's just left New Jersey, damnit, but where is it now? GIVE ME THE F...CKING DETAILS!!

Ohmygosh, I got my gifts in the mail today! They are the greatest things ever! They're from Quetz and it's a Rock Magazine with a special feature on David Bowie, and a lot of stuff on Debby Harry which is also good. It has the "oral sex" picture, as Bowie called it, on the front. I also got a punk mixed CD. I haven't listened to it yet but I saw that it had the Buzzcocks, Television, and the Sex Pistols whom I already know that I like. AND I got a talking Dalek plush toy and a Matt Smith Lego® minifig. I'll take pictures soon. Or maybe a video of the Dalek with my Tardis. Thank you, Quetz!

I feel a bit insecure about the gift I sent out now.

Oh man. All the excitement makes me feel like I ought to participate in one of these. Maybe next year. Maybe. Only the future knows, and that dude is a total dick and won't tell me anything worthwhile.

Glad you got and enjoyed ze presents. I hunted this indoor fleamarket far and wide for something Bowie-related and the magazine is what I came up with. It's funny you bring up Debbie Harry being in there too, because if I knew you liked Blondie I might have also included a pin I bought at that fleamarket. As it stands, the Blondie pin will be a stocking stuffer for my sister, who will also appreciate it. Because the magazine only cost me two bucks I also hit Newbury Comics, which had a whole section of Doctor Who type stuff. I like to imagine that some postal employee was momentarily careless with your gift at some point and then the package was all "EXTERMINATE!"

(PS: When you take out the CD, take note of the URL written on the the back of the track listing - it's an extra surprise, albeit something I totally already made long before secret spamta time)

I always feel that way. I have all ze stuff, it is packaged to ship, but unfortunately I woke up to about 10 inches of snow on my car (still snowing) and should be at work now, but decided I'd wait to hear if we are delayed. I've never done this once in the 10 years I've been there. I just don't feel the need to risk my life today, so fork it, I'm due.
Anyway, if not shipped today, will be shipped tomorrow to arrive (hopefully) at about the new year.

I got mine. I feel bad about not being 100% sure on who my spamta was, but I am pretty certain that California return address + drawing of self as brunette with a cowlick + has seen my facebook statuses about palindromes but doesn't use her real name on there = fanelian?

T-shirt!

Book of illustrated palindromes!

Drawing!

I am pretty dang happy about these. The t-shirt is rad, the book looks pretty funny, and since you can't really read the text on the picture, I'll add that it includes an actual Quetzalcoatl depiction.

That is definitely from Fanelian. And I have that book of palindromes! But not from her. Also, sweet Shaun of the Dead poster.
