You not only gave me an ace gift, you gave me a potential new friend :wub:

No idea who Howord is but I'll track him down. No doubt we will soon be buxom buddies playing DKC2 through together :toot:

Cheers for the pint glass and Jolteon decal GG, I will get great use out of the glass and the Jolteon may well find its way onto my wall soon. :D

Hoping Hyperion likes his gift.

Let's hope so mate. Although there's a risk of him being so familiar with what you've bought him that he'll inexplicably forget WHAT THE strawberry float IT EVEN IS.

It's just a bit of Santa. I'm watching Commando (thanks Madness :wub:) so I have calmed down.

:lol: I think the mug was better in theory than execution. I didn't have time to make a better design, so I could only plug your pearls of wisdom in to a word cloud generator and that was the best to come out of it. I don't know what the print quality is like. I gave them like a 60MP image and it was still telling me it wasn't high res enough. And it was supposed to cover more of the mug than a strip in the middle.

The quality is fine, perfectly legible. Only issue is that the last character on the furthest right words is clipped off because of the funkypigeon logo. Still, funny gooseberry fool though. Just confirms how incredibly legit my advice is.

Was the Emma pic a random selection?

You are pretty easy to buy for. Scanned the last page of your posts and they all fell into place. What kind of quality is the Ariel Winter print?

Thanks Dowbocop.

Really love the book. The game was played with fams this evening and went down a storm.

Arya and The Hound custom minifigs :D maybe I can find some way to integrate them with my hobbit house or build a diorama for them..

And a detail brush set, which is awesome as mine are always cowlicked or not quite the right size, and just been getting back into miniature painting.

Thanks secret santa :wub:

He spelled Claus with two Cs, you weapon. It was obviously jamcc.


:lol:

You're welcome, Rog. :-)

And holy crap thanks so much to my Santa (Chalky). :shock: He got me a ticket to the Classic Car Show at the Excel in February! I can't believe your generosity.

Image

Seriously, thank you so much. I haven't been to a car show in years, so this is brilliant. And thank you for the lovely card too:

The packaging made me laugh. As you said, you tried, and the many layers of packaging only served to pique my interest. Here is just some of the packaging that the tickets came in:

Image

Thanks again. And happy Christmas to everyone.

Oh and before anyone says it, strawberry float you, those are clean carpets. The orange specks are part of the design and any dark smudges you can see are due to my phone's camera being a bit strawberry floated.

The effort people go to in here is crazy, very impressive. So much more than I do for anyone I know.

I got a book about how stuff works by the author of xkcd written in small words only, a book of images of space from the NASA archive, and the flight manual for the Saturn V - absolutely love all three! Also got some chocolate coins, nom :mrgreen:

The xkcd book has made me laugh twice, and I've read two pages, so it's a good start! The photo book is awesome as well. I also cannot wait to sit down and learn how to fly a rocket :wub:

Thank you so much Santa!


Relieved you liked it. Was there a card in there too? I cant remember if I packed it or not, but I definately wrote one. One of those years where I legit wanted to keep all of the stuff myself.

Yes there was, thought I'd wait until the reveal to thank you personally. Thanks very much again! Spot on with your choices :D

That's what I was driving for with the game, it's why I didn't get you the NSFW version (although you can mix the two sets if you desire). I knew you love board games but I got in well over my head researching that so I went with something a bit more simple. I was really happy initially when I got you, then I read your post saying you had no more space for Lego so I had to do some proper research! I'm glad you like the book. Like Falsey said about mine, I wanted to keep yours myself! Did it get to you without much fuss? My wife posted it and sent it signed delivery instead of just recorded, hope it wasn't too much hassle!

Thanks very much for organising this Buff, another great year! :D

Whoever gets Chalmers next year needs to get in touch with me. I already have an idea for one present that he would have got instead of scrolls but amazon just refused to send it.
