DIRTY SANTA '18: NORTH POLE OR HELL

Postby Lyrai » Fri Nov 23, 2018 12:28 am

GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS MOTHERFUCKERS.



IT'S TIME FOR EVERYONE'S FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR

Image

THE TIME TO FIGHT. GIFT EACH OTHER THINGS.

Image

THAT'S RIGHT, DESPITE THE WORLD CATCHING ON FIRE (IN FRIDAY'S CASE, LITERALLY), WE'RE STILL DOING THIS.
WE NEED THIS SHIT
WE ALL NEED A GOOD OLD FASHIONED RUMBLE TO CHEER EACH OTHER UP.

Image

DIRTY. SANTA. 2018. IT'S ON.

Image

1) Submit to me the following information:
Mailing Name
Full Mailing Address
What do you LIKE
What do you DISLIKE
What do you ALREADY HAVE THAT YOU THINK SOMEONE WOULD WANT TO SEND YOU
Can you ship INTERNATIONALLY
Are you in for ONE or TWO

Please do not overstretch yourself. If you can't ship internationally, don't. If you can't swing two, say one. I'll cover any oddities and mixups, so everyone can just focus on what they can do.

2) On December 1st, I will mix these up, and draw from one of my hats, YOUR MATCHES.

3) I will give this person, the form above! They will use this to construct a gift composed of used items, odds & ends, and various other things. We're all kind of poor around here, it's fine. Or they'll just throw together a bunch of stuff for you. It's all fine! Don't be that asshole one year who complained that their gift was "A bunch of jap weeaboo crap!"

4) Christmas comes around! Open your gifts! Share pictures! Share stories! Complain that you didn't get yours and wait for our usual lateness to creep in over the year!

Image

TO A GOOD FIGHT, AND GREAT FRIENDSHIPS.

Also I'm going to be asking around to see if any other outliers from not-bronto would want to join in. My brother joined in last year and that seemed to go well!

Seven years is probably long enough to overcome my shame and try again. I'll make sure to read instructions more than once this time.

I don't know if I'll participate yet (really haven't acquired much to toss out regift... plus Canada Post is on strike), I would just like to say that I'm damned impressed that you're still able to find so many images of badass Santas year after year.

I've been such a disaster this whole year that I still haven't sent out my box from last year. Things kept piling up, and a thing I wanted to include I kept not getting together. But I just put in an order to commit to the thing that was holding me back, and I *will* send it out before the time comes this year.

I'm obviously not participating this year after dropping the ball so hard. But the pictures for the box that's been sitting on my shelf all this time will go up when it comes. I hope it wasn't full of food, but I didn't think I deserved to open it until my box went out.

Also, if we're sending care packages to Friday, I'm down for that.

Yeah, that's a big sticking point for me. I've learned that any packages leaving or entering Toronto could be delayed until after the new year.

(If you ship them now, obviously)

I mean, if I knew for sure I had a bunch of stuff to send, then I wouldn't let the strike put me off. It's not like Dirty Santa hasn't, uh, seen some late arriving packages before (having one unboxing in, like, April, is practically a tradition now!).

But yeah, I'd really have to dig to find anything, let alone something which would make a good DS gift.

Friday has given me explicit orders to do this - if she needs help, she'll ask for it. For now, it's Dirty Santa as usual.

That said if you want to arrange something sneakylike, PM me and I'll see what we can do.

I have a folder specifically for santas for this. I fill it over the year as I come across images.

I've hit the point where I'm asking artist friends to create specific Santa Images I can't find myself.

I take this shit seriously

I think I can find some junk to ship out, and/or another couple hundred fidget spinners to send to Lyrai

I'm... thinking about it. After the last few BrontoCons, I got to know everyone better than you could in a chatroom, so I might actually be able to do this.

That being said, I'm not sure I have anything in the Dirty Santa spirit. I'll take a look around when I get a few spare seconds.

I want to participate, but I really don't have many used things I'm set to part with or space for new ones. Oh well.

I'm looking at moving next year, so I'm in, and could possibly send some books and things around.

It isn't a Dirty Santa without me unloading Transformers at people.

Last call for Dirty Santa. Send me your details in the next hour and a half or you're not in.

Sorry, I don't think I can do it. Two moves in four years into small spaces has left me with very little stuff.

I have received a package already, but will refrain from opening it until I’ve sent mine out, probably a week or two after Christmas.
