Yaaay, it arrived! :yay: I was so worried it would get lost in the mail, and when you posted you were leaving for Montreal I got even more worried that you'd never get your package. Damn I'm feeling so relieved now. Even more so that you like the stuff. :awesomedash:

How is the phone cover holding up? I don't own a galaxy S3 so I've no idea how it fits, or if it's the right colour. I looked up galaxy S3 phones online and learned they come in different colours. The cover is white, is your phone white?

What happened was that some of the stuff I ordered online never got to me in proper time. I kept checking the track and trace, but it never changed its status from 'registered abroad'. The socks and the toy story horse were somewhat hastily purchased the day I sent the package. I was a bit stressed out by it all so I didn't even think about writing a horsie cipher message.

Welp! That's a whole load off of my shoulders. :scootawoo:

Incidentally when I checked the track and trace info for the delayed stuff today it had suddenly changed status to 'attempted delivery'. Of course I am not home to receive the stuff when it finally arrives. :allright:

Wait, so Perrydotto and Throbulator had two SS each? Or did they just send out extra gifts for the fun of it without acknowledging which one is the official SS? :psyduck:

I've only sent one gift, to logicow this year. We talked a bit about the letters I sent out for last year's SS and for the Valentines Day.

Perry sent extra gifts to (at least) me and Mad Surge, neither of which were secret. My Secret Santa was Aramek, Mad Surge's Secret Santa present was delayed, and going by a quick search, Perry's Secret Santee either hasn't posted or didn't realise it was her.

I guess I'll check in and note that I haven't gotten anything yet. The post office hasn't left me any pickup notices so I don't think I missed it. I hope. :flutterdear:

I'm very happy you enjoyed your presents, Venusy! Fills me with utter glee :allears:
If the Fluttershy soap is half as nice as the Applejack one, it's VERY nice. I've used the Applejack one for only the most special occasions and it always gave the nicest fragrance - In Applejack's case, cinnamon and apple. :twasnothin:
It definitely is a special soap, and while it's not much, it has a lot of memories attached to it, and I'm certain you will treasure it.

Also, the gift I sent for the Secret Santa hasn't arrived yet. Goddamnit, post. I worry it's been lost or something, and there's nothing I can do except wait and hope :fluttersmith:

If you sent it via DHL (Deutsche Post), you can actually look at it's status via the DHL site, if you still have the bill with the responsible number on it.

I did send via DHL, and I do have the bill, but for whatever reason the tracking code won't work. Blarg.

Might be differences in the code depending on the country. Thanks to my Santa, Willsun and the magic of PMs I can track the package from the USA just fine, but trying the same code on the courier service's site doesn't turn up anything. :pinkieshrug:

This MODOK mug is amazing, but gigantic. It's holding 2x the amount of regular tea/other mug fluids and it's taking forever to cool down to drinkable temperature! MODOK why?!

I ordered a package online
It got lost for quite some time
With great haste and alarm
I sent socks that are warm
And a drawing that's totally fine. :allright:

A few options, choose some or all of them as you like:
  1. Put cosmic ice cubes in your drinks to cool them down.
  2. Only fill your glass half-way. There's nothing that says you have to give in to his demands for a full mug.
  3. Add milk to everything?
  4. Don't heat your water so much in the first place.
  5. Relegate the MODOK mug to cold drinks only.
  6. Deal with it.[/list:o]
ImageImageImage Very math.

Fear not fellow pony gift victims/perpetrators. I was informed long ago that my Xmas surprise was enroute and imminent, and I have the vigorous patience of a billion zen Buddhist monks. Cry not for me, for my anticipation and, therefore, my enjoyment shall be objectively greater than yours.

Besides, Orthodox Xmas is still 3 days away or something.

Hey Bartonfink, what does having a legacy feel like?

On an unrelated note, the post office claims that my package left the country on the 12th of December. I don't know what's happened since then but I'm starting to suspect that it's been captured by the Morlocks.
