    You must be drunk or in a terrible timezone, but either way I'm currently on my way back to TN. Can confirm there are multiple Amazon boxes with my name on it. Late tonight or early tomorrow morning is my updated forecast. Maybe Dec 1st if Santa doesn't control his snarky little elves..

    My apartment has a locker system that notifies you when you get a package. If the box is too large to fit, they put it in the mailroom with no notification. You have to keep track of your orders to know when you’ve received something.

    I ordered an office chair mat and went to the front desk to pick it up. She brings out this ratty box that looks like medical waste:

    E84DB3B9-D3C4-4DAB-9048-B40D6686581E.jpeg

    I told her that wasn’t what I was expecting. So we examine the address to see if she made a mistake:

    67BAFC3A-F5C4-4C80-844F-7B935D073426.jpeg

    :shocked: Quickly say, “Oh yeah, that’s me, thanks,” and take the package out of her sight.

    Santa really killed it. I got a lovely card:

    11B333E9-FB3B-4D1F-9DCC-9F3CD09236B4.jpeg

    The gifts are exquisite and reflect well on both gifter and giftee as these items show good taste:

    EBB23D02-BF24-4E44-9F10-BBD89608D315.jpeg

    At first, I thought it was a Jaguars shirt and was disappointed, but then I saw the jumbo shrimp. Super stoked! (Confession that may result in me losing my partial-coonass card: I prefer shrimp over crawfish.)

    Got a super bright flashlight that looks like a shotgun shell. Reminds me of home. :ohgosh:

    Vineyard Vines stickers to keep it fratty, despite being a GDI (biggest regret of my life, I’m sure).

    Kraft mac & cheese, the pasta and really the of all Italian delicacies. Unfortunately, I limit my carbs, but I will cook this for my family on Christmas Day. Stay tuned itt. I’ll also cross post to the family holiday thread.

    Some super sweet, wood coasters with a laser-etched map of DC. These will keep my beverages from marring my furniture which is very practical. Close-up:

    And the crème de la crème, a velvet rope. This eagle-eyed user saw that I was having a difficult time sorting all the pussy I’ve been getting because of my sweet leather chesterfield couch and painted paddles in an organized manner, so he got me this velvet rope so I can have an orderly queue:

    Don’t worry, I’m sure the girls are on the way and just delayed because of the rain.

    User Pharm, you’re very generous and did a great job. I love you, and you’re my new best friend. I hope you and your family have a cool Christmas, happy Hanukkah, krazy Kwanza, etc. and nifty new year in your new house!

    There's only a first name on one of the receipts..?

    Not sure if I've posted about Gritty here or not (edit, I did in the about me, so this must be from tmb). I love the hat for the child but worried she may not have a chance to wear it down here since it's always so hot.

    No mention of TMB or any usernames so it may be from somewhere else?

    Another arrival today. And SS identified as brolift

    Funny timing on the yard book. If you post in the home owner thread, TruGreen killed my entire yard by accident and today just so happened to be the day they came by and re-sodded the entire yard.
