A big thanks to my SS. Don't have the ability to post a photo, but I got:

A Game Boy heat change mug (very nice, I do need more mugs and it's the kind of thing I dig)
A chocolate controller (already eaten, and pretty tasty!)
Enid Blyton, Five on Brexit Island (which I am looking forward to reading)
WWE Annual 2018 (won't lie, kinda looking forward to being a child and flicking through it :lol: )

Thanks a bunch! :D

Thanks to my Santa, love the game boy heat change mug - that’s coming to work with me, and my son adores the Jedi meerkat so much. The fancy bottle of port is going to go down a treat with my cheese selection tonight.
Merry Christmas to all the Santa’s - looks like another great Grcade bumper year.

I'd also like to know why I didn't get a mention in the credits for Lagas Christmas Maze.

I was clearly the inspiration for it

If he doesn’t turn up soon then I am just going to claim to be the sender of the best gifts.

Surely not... :o

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I haven't received anything.



Now that I've got your attention by dangling the possibility of another Vesp I'd just like to make it crystal clear that Corazon was in contact before Christmas to let me know that the gift had been sent by my SS but there was a decent chance I wouldn't get anything before Christmas especially as I was using a PO Box service.


It'll probably arrive by the end of the week.

I had to deal with a pretty urgent insurance claim for my brother, who was stranded in the snow with the dog. I'll get the post up now.

Lagamorph bought for Cora, who bought for bear, who bought for Skarjo, who bought for Ecno, who bought for Falsey, who bought for DML, who bought for Seven, who bought for Clarkman, who bought for Hyperion, who bought for Dowbocop, who bought for Denster, who bought for Green Gecko, who bought for Mini E, who bought for Banjo, who bought for AndyXL, who bought for KJGarly, who bought for Jimbojango, who bought for LewisD, who bought for Qikz, who bought for TonyDA, who bought for Shadow202, who bought for Moggy, who bought for Lagamorph!

Bear - I'm so sorry that your stuff didn't get delivered on time - I know that the parcels were delivered on Friday - one was handed to a receptionist, the other two just show as delivered. Let me know the second it's delivered to you.

In hindsight, this was pretty difficult to keep up with given other commitments(PhD viva, university marking etc) - so apologies for the slightly shoddy handling of the whole thing, but everything seems to have gone largely alright. :)

I'm intrigued! The mystery of this is all so... mysterious!

I didn't join in the Secret Santa this year so I'm participating vicariously through you all - but if you can please post pictures!

Woo! Now I can tell Ecno that he has more stuff coming but he got bamboozled by Amazon cancelling orders on me!

So hold tight Ecno!

Also, bear, you're a beautiful man - that was a lovely haul (and the gift wrap bag for Hyrule Historia has been robbed by my dad because it was so nice!). You're a legend!

I suspect it's a CIB copy of Banjo Tooie, which is one of the most expensive N64 games to pick up. :dread: :shock:
