I live in a bizarre universe, where mail actually arrives on Sunday. Yesterday I walked in after having lunch with a friend, and my building manager grabbed me-- saying that a package had arrived with my name on it. Turns out it was my mighty belated replacement Secret Santa gift! Yippee!
That_Darn_Cat sent me some mighty strange stuff. A CD and four CD cases. Soap. A picture frame. Tabasco Sauce. Signatures of everyone from a Philly Dopefest. Two mugs (one shaped like a boot-- a jibe at my Canadianess?) and a broken plastic US flag.
I have a feeling the flag broke in transit, otherwise it has some mighty strange political ramifications
So of course I check out the old thread that I started two months ago, http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=169371&highlight=santa
And I see that after my final post, whistlepig chimed in saying he tried to email me a request for t-shirt sizes in December! Sorry whistler, but I didn’t check the thread after that particular day-- and for whatever reason I never got your emails in December. FWIW, I tend to wear small T-shirts and I have since changed my email address (but I recommend everyone put SDMB in the subject line, or I might accidentally wipe it out as unread spam…)
Thanks for making my day!
