    PS He's not kidding about that Palinca stuff. I once got some from a fellow student from the bowels of central Europe, made by his grandpa. I had a sip, promptly nearly died and emptied it in the nearby potted plant when nobody was looking. I think braincells died from that one sip.

    Also: great stuff santa's!

    Well.
    You know what you did.
    Photos later if i remember.

    gg. wp.
    No scandinavian, just an interested party waiting for an appropriate opportunity to buy those after reading about them a few years ago. Reviews are very good! Hopefully we can get some in use pics this year, for science and all. But per the reviews, don't look down the barrel

    Unboxening! Mine arrived last week and I've been waiting for this moment! Let's see what we have!

    A fairly large box plus envelope!
      Spoiler:


    Envelope first! It's the second part of the present apparently, whoops! There's a letter from Joe and a trump flag to remind me of my failures in debating with trump supporters
      Spoiler:




    Let's open the box!
      Spoiler:

    Lots of German magazine


    And a polar bear!


    Small presents first!
      Spoiler:

    Euro quackers to remind me of failures in debating with brexiters


    And some incense (forgot to photo the holder on its own, next picture!)


    MAKE FHC GREAT AGAIN
      Spoiler:


    Full haul also has Git for Teams book and some traditional German cake, which I'm going to demolish today


    Thanks Joe! A+ would receive santa again!

    Sorry for being late, i was quite busy during the last days.

    So, i got 3 packages, one with a very distinguishing shape:

      Spoiler:

    Onto the unboxing!

    The box contains ale and shortbread (very nom nom, itīs already gone)
      Spoiler:


    Also, you could see the next present, a nice iconic poster of Boba Fett. I need to get a frame and find a place for this.
      Spoiler:


    The last one is the Star Wars Galactic Atlas book! Wow, Iīm going to sink many hours of reading and browsing time into this!!
      Spoiler:


    Thanks Santa, i really like your presents. Good work.

    (Sorry for the crappy pics, i still have a potato phone.)

    Np glad you liked

    Wasn't sure what to get you, so went with similar theme to last year haha, could only find tech thread stuff and star wars...

    I did get you a bottle of Liverpool gin, but apparently we're not allowed to export it due to laws or something, and I didn't want to risk it being scanned and stopped so ill let you know when I'm in Germany and I'll bring it with me

    Sorry for no letters/card, completely forgot haha

    OMG !!!!! what happened? Did one of the bottles break or something?

    Also that's Blueberry liqueur. It's quite popular here in winter on different festivals.

    Edit: yes one of the bottles broke

    Because of stuff I will probably first be able to get my package in the new year. It's already at the package station, but I have to get something else from the same area from a friend .. so I need time to coordinate that.

    A package has arrived from the mythical realm of Anglostan. Alas the package suffered a few bumps along the way.

      Spoiler:



    But the contents seemed to have survived the journey

      Spoiler:


    What's this? It looks fun...

      Spoiler:


    It's a Cyanide & Happiness game!

      Spoiler:



    Thank you so much Secret Santa. Unfortunately the jelly babies melted into a blob along the way but I have started reading the book (history of swearing) and have eaten the fruit pastilles!

    Lol glad you liked it Grendelfreak, I didn't even realise jelly babies could melt... The game is like Cards against Humanity but with C&H comics, well fun with a few mates and a few beers (no kids, trust you me). The cookies are Belgian (like me) and my favourite, hope they survived in the tin!

    That's one hell of a beating it got, I'm happy to decided against sending bottles in the end (also AU customs welp).

    Oh wow Tyrehl's gift, part 3, arrived as I was away. A very nice neighbour kept it safe and dry and I just opened it to figure out whats it from. I will do a full unboxing photoshoot but dear god, this is the most amazing gift ever. Wow I really feel lame about my own gift to my SS now
    <Devec> hello captain Tyrehl

    Bumping for nothing arriving yet, assuming I have one of the late senderers, but if not you might want to check tracking?
