:lol

I told you not to open it till Xmas, grrrrrr!

BTW I flipped the image because it is awesome:



Also it's not a banner but winter scarf! I hope there will be snow in Japan this year!

Mine arrived just moments ago. I am really stunned:

:bow Borys :bow2

He not only got me one of the few games that I'm VERY interested in for PS3, but he also stole Miss Poland's banner for me! I am sporting it, but it was too cold to change into a bikini.

Thanks, Borys!

You can't even fucking manage to flip an image? Are all Mac users so lazy? Or do you not know how?

What crawled up your ass?

I opened it in Preview, where it was backward. So I flipped it, then uploaded it. Or flipped it on Flickr. It looks normal on the flickr page, not sure why it's unflipped here.

Did you? Sorry, I missed that along with the flippage, in my enthusiasm. I even booted the game, and ran my sac around. WOOT!

I'll wear the scarf, see if anyone greets me in Polish! Thanks!

It should, but if he wants DLC he'll have to buy it from a European store. Better help him get the Euro PSN cards when they start shipping.

Nice gifts Borys.
It is. It's very thoughtful. Super happy, and a little guilty that I didn't do a similarly nice treatment for my targeted gift receiver.  :(

So LBP works? Great! Is it in English :teehee ?
It boots! It provided the initial voice explanations in English. Is that John Cleese? It's SUPER.

Good thing about PS3 games being region free and HD - even the shitty PAL ones can be used by NTSCers

Also I feel bad now I don't have my gift organised :(

Fine! But only partially! I still need SOMETHING to open on Xmas.


Ooh! Secret Santa #1!


Festively decorated the box, too!


It's a box inside! Ordered some DVDs...


Santa Gundam! And it says Merry Christmas! (I still know very basic katakana)


Something about death to all infidels.


He cleverely labeled the bag wrapping as Xmas wrapping.


Wish #1 fulfilled! Nerds Ropes are the best candy in the world.


GameStop monies! Excellent!


And some heavy gifts! I'll wait to open those.

As a bonus: Here's a bug stuck in my ceiling light.

I'm sorta excited about mine, haven't done a secret santa outside of work where we have $10 limits and you end up with a stupid Xmas novelty gift.

Of course now I know I've jinxed myself and will end up with something distinguished mentally-challenged fellowed like an Xmas tie :smug

Just got back from shipping my SS gift. Originally went to FedEx, but



They wanted $96 for less than three lbs. :lol

Ended up going to USPS...it should be there in 6-10 business days!

Returned home to find something from an un-named stranger. Three cool little Futurama mystery toys!





:bow Zoidberg.

Left the last one for my wife to open. Will post result later. Come onnnnn Bender or Robot Devil.

I'll send my stuff out soon, I'm also using EMS so it'll arrive really fast.

If my guy hasn't mailed my shit yet, be aware that I'm going to be on vacation for the last few weeks of December, so if you don't think it'll arrive before then, it's probably better to wait until after new year to send it.
