On the 12th Day of Christmas—

> The 12th Day of Christmas is January 5th, you jerkwad. It has come and gone.

Hmm. Oh! "Three Kings Day" or "Little Christmas" is traditionally celebrated on January 6th...

> Which has also already passed! Try to keep up.

Okay—okay—now that January 6th has passed, the time has come—

> —three days ago, actually. Today is the 9th. Have you even looked at a calendar recently?

Fine! Fine! We'll call this the 16th Day of Christmas! I'm an asshole; let's move on!


I got a box! (Weeks ago.) I would have posted about it, but I had to catch a flight to Michigan. Now that I am back, behold the contents!

This was a delightful gift; sorry again for my delinquency in timing. Thanks so much, Lyrai!

Unfortunately, between the time in which I assembled everything to send you and the actual shipping, one intended passenger (a treacherous metroid figurine) vanished. I suspect a cat is to blame, but it hasn't turned up yet.

Vape Life™ is from this Monster Factory ep. There was a gal at the last con I went to selling Monster Factory pins.

My Monster Secret is kinda iffy, but I was told Sweetness & Lightning was fantastic and heartwarming, so, let me know if that's true.

I'm still an asshole who hasn't sent mine out, I'm trying to find the time and energy to dig some stuff up I wanna put in it. I'm not gonna open the one I got until I have. I don't think I've earned it?

Things haven't been great.
のほも is such a good word?? the concept is kind of hard to fully get across in translation, but basically it means a feeling of pure, deep, platonic affection, and i think thats beautiful

Let me take you back a month and a day to when I, unaware of the DIRTY fate that befell me, was greeted by a heavy box with a stranger's name on it, and I'll walk you through my thought process. Ready?

Image

That's odd. I didn't order anything. Did someone from Talking Time send this? I'd better ask and find out.
<time passes>
No one's saying anything. Better get this over with.

Image
Image

Bubble wrap? That's a good sign. Someone went to a lot of trouble to keep the contents intact. And what's this?

Image

"Knights in the --?" Better check the spine of the case.

Image

...

Moving on.

Image

There's like a dozen of these decals. Whoever sent this box sure loves Adult Swim. Case in point:

Image

Note to self: get Mongrel to post an appropriate clip from Space Ghost.

Image

Hey, it's a comic! From that person who makes that comic about the witch that gets high all the time and it's creepy and disjointed and the creator was a guest of honour at TCAF.

Image

It's a... another comic? By Jimmy Palmiotti?

Image

Huh. Looks interesting.

Image

Begorrah! Can't get enough of stories from the Emerald Isles, like Cu Chulainn, Fionn mac Cool, and, uh, James Joyce.

Image
Image

Demons and dragons, eh? Throw in a book about angels and I could build a Kaalia deck.

Image

That's odd. This bag is surprisingly dense. What could it be?

Image
Image

oh jeez

Image

Damn, this... this is a lot of cards. Looks like there's an almost complete monoblue tron deck, along with a ton of cards from Shadowmoor, Ravnica and earlier sets.

Image

Wait, there's more?!

Image
Image
Image

This is all jank and I love it!

Image

Wait, there's something else inside the bag...

Image

Oh, I am, blue card, I am.

Image

Ahahaha, it's the mark of quality when they spell it "magick".

Image

I think I hear more cards rattling around in here, too! Aaaaand--

Image

...oh.

Image

And there's more adult swim tat.

Image

I already said I was!

Image

Some very misc. stuff in the bottom of the lunchbox.

Image

What the...

Image

Okay but why is it in a Capri Sun packet?

Image

Maybe so, but I use Chrome.

Image
Image
Image

Now this is more like it. What could be more fun than a binder full of wacky old cards?

Image
Image

TWO binders full of wacky old cards!

I don't know what I did to deserve this, but I'm not saying I don't. Thank you, secret benefactor!


And then I learned it was beatbandito. Thank you, beatbandito!

I do find it richly ironic that one of the best Dirty Santa gifts I ever got was in a year I didn't enter.

Yay! The creepy smile cards I got a huge stack of from a creepy person on the street on NYC years ago and have put in all the dirty santa boxes since. Lots of the knick-knacks come from 'Ol Contextless Teddy or Nick who I think is more in #FF but posts sometimes.

The magic cards are as you said. There are a few 'full' decks but the Tron deck is the only one that ever put up any kind of real fight in a tourni. It is every Magic card I've ever owned (in the original middle school binders) more-or-less and I've been considering offering to send them to you or Mongrel for about a year just so I didn't have to throw them all out.

That is not all jank; Chrome Mox and Show and Tell are both solid cards that get used in competitive decks.

Oh, I know. I'm keeping the choice cards for myself.
