DIRTY SANTA 2021: ULTRA GIFT INSTINCT

Postby Lyrai » Fri Nov 26, 2021 10:23 pm

HOLY FUCKING SHIT WE MADE IT


WE TOOK A BREAK IN 2020 BECAUSE COME ON, WHO DIDN'T WANT A BREAK IN 2020
Image

BUT IT'S THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING. AND I KNOW A LOT OF YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR ONE WAY OR ANOTHER
Image

DIRTY. SANTA. 2021.
Image

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.

"Hey I have a lot of shit but I don't really want anything?"
Valid! I can donate boxes of your stuff to people elsewhere, or to the food bank, rescue mission, or animal shelter! I hope EVERYONE doesn't do this, though.

2) On December 3rd, 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!

4) Christmas comes around! Open your gifts! Share pictures! Share stories! Reminisce about old cartoons!

I feel like we can work with that? There's always people who want to give but would rather not receive.

Yes this. One way or another, I can get your box of xmas goodness to someone who would get joy from it.

Sorting the names now.

Special Note: If you were on the sidelines because "Oh I have a lot of crap but I don't WANT any" - just fuckin box it up and send it to me. I can do the following:

A) Donate it to the rescue mission or animal shelter
B) Box it up and send it to someone who is having a real shit time of it

I've started just sending people elsewhere who are having dogshit times of it just boxes of goodies and stuff.

Ayyy Black Magic (that's Masmune Shirow's first major, full-sized published manga. It's kinda rough around the edges, but pretty fun)

I have sent a mysterious package, in what might have been the worst mailing experience of my life! Should arrive on Friday. But not Friday the person. Friday the date. I'm not sure how it would work otherwise.

I mean, feel free to open it early, I don't know if my heart can take waiting to hear how bad I did and how I've disappointed everyone I've ever loved.

Why don't phones know which side is down when you picture? Hopefully the imgur rotations will actually show up shortly.

I have a big box of book from hngkong! Thank you!
Image

I actually know some of these names! These comics are in ridiculously good condition, especially ROM, which appears to be an original print from '73? Wowzas!
Image

Along with the comics are two 3DS games, theme of building. A lovely card, and some edible goodies. The lifesavers gave the whole box a nice smell and will be positioned right on my desk for a month or so.

Lastly is a very thoughtful mushroom grow kit. I have mentioned in #finalfight getting into mushroom cultivation possibly as a source of income. I'm still in the setup phase, so this will be my first yield. The process on these is a bit different from everything I've read, but it's already got growth.
