CHUD Holiday Gift Exchange 2011

post #1 of 137
Thread Starter 

I'm busy as hell but it's time this thing got started. This tradition is, pound for pound, one of the greatest things going on the CHUD boards. Sign up below, as follows:

Name
City, State, Country
International Shipping Yea or Nay?

 

As usual the minimum is $20. If you're even thinking of stiffing your givee, you suck and your god and/or mom will make sure you know it.


Cutoff date for signups is 11:59 pm PST, November 18th. The list will be posted November 21st at 9am PST. Yes, that's the Monday before Black Friday. You're welcome.

Really enjoyed Justin's Halloween book swap, so I'm in for some Holiday Gift Exchange this year!

The giving was great. The receiving better. Getting anonymous gifts are fabulous. The All Hallow's Read swamp was fun (and I am claiming victory), and I want to sign up for my second year with the Gift Exchange.

 

 

Benjamin

Oak Ridge, TN (United States)

International Shipping: Yea!

Ted

It's really all he's good for.

post #13 of 137

Back once again with the ill behavior.

 

Justin Clark

International: Ja.

 

By the by, I can't be the only one that read teledork's and Dylan's international lines in Keith David's voice, right?

post #14 of 137

I have gotten manhandled by this routinely, but...

 

Nick Nunziata
Alpharetta, GA USA
Sure

post #15 of 137

(How does this work exactly, guys?)

post #16 of 137

After the deadline, Hammerhead will create the gift giving chain. Someone sends you a gift. You send a different person a gift for Christmas .  Then we all brag about our awesome stuff we get.

 

Person 1-->Person 2-->Person 3-->Person 4-->Person 1.

 

 

 

Edited to add the humor:

 

But, seeing as you are on the internet and claim to have a vagina, you may just receive pictures of McNooj's giblets.

post #17 of 137

Oooh hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo... (rubs hands together gleefully)

post #18 of 137


Been bit of a lurker lately, but I'm in. I love Christmas and loving giving gifts. Plus, this was fun last year.


Parker
Cambridge, MA
Sorry, no.

post #19 of 137

Repost from last year. Just for everyone's benefit.

I may not participate but can I make a suggestion that if you do order from Amazon, perhaps get a CHUD sponsored link from Nick or someone first so that the site benefits from the exchange?
post #21 of 137

Along with that, make sure your Amazon information is up to date.

Is it possible to have a blanket referral? Like I click on the link from this page and I am sent to Amazon for a shopping spree? Or do you have to have a line item referral?

Also, given that this *is* CHUD, don't be surprised if we find out your info and you end up getting multiple pictures of giblets from far afield.

 

Nick, here's hoping your giftor doesn't suck.

post #24 of 137

I will be quite upset. There's only one person whose 'giblets' I want to see, and I already have those pictures, and they're huge and fabulous. 

 

Also, I'm willing to send cookies to whoever. Just give me an address, independent of the gift exchange. Sent a box to Doc Happenin last year when his stuff got stolen. 

post #25 of 137

I always miss the boat on this.  Not this year! 

 

Her Royal Highness 

Fayetteville, NC 

America, fuck yeah!  The rest of you? No!

post #26 of 137

Definitely.

 

George Wishart

International: Yes

post #27 of 137

Missed out last year - would love to get in this year!

 

Tom Fuchs

If I stated on the AV club that Wayward Woman is actually an exec in charge of not cancelling Community, and that to save it, we should all mail pictures of our giblets (man giblets and lady giblets) to her...   Could you write a book and turn that into a hit comedy movie starring Amy Adams and Adam Scott?  Could Aziz Ansari play McNooj (or did I just wide paintbrush all of Asia? :D)

 

 

On Topic:  I am kinda excited and antsy to see this list after seeing my Holiday Gift Exchange 2010 buddy, Will Kane, above.

 

 

post #32 of 137

One more kick at the can.

You ASSHOLE. And I would keep the millions made to myself. And fuck Amy Adams. If I'm going to hire a genetically gifted skinny bitch to portray my inner angst, it's going to be Eva Green or Rachel Weisz. 

 

(Please don't.)

post #34 of 137

I'm in.

 

Jeremy G. Butler

Kilgore, TX

Preferably not, but can in a pinch if necessary.

 

Also - be forewarned:  I have never stiffed anyone - EVER - but being a single, middle class parent at Christmas means that, because of finances, SOMETIMES that shit's late.  Two years ago Brendan didn't get his until January for February.  But he got it.  I felt shitty, but he got it.

 

Alsoalso - regarding Amazon and the CHUD Link.  On the home page, in the header, there's a row of teeny icons.  One of them is a shopping cart.  Click it and it takes you to the basic Amazon page, but it's through our portal, so anything you buy gets credited back to us.  And brofists to whomever it was that mentioned it upthread.

I have a friend who has an Amazon addiction.  I'm going to see if she'll use that link for her purchases from now on.

Dayton, Ohio, United States

International: not this year

 

(real name and specific mailing addy to the person who gets me)

post #37 of 137

If you're already hunting for gifts, here's one that will help those of us who like a certain ridiculous thread here on CHUD.

post #38 of 137

I don't think I'm going to participate, but I just wanted to say that I personally would be far more interested in a robot that could jerk me off than a robot that was going to watch my back while I did it.

post #39 of 137

...unless you were just referring to a sort of "NSFW, your boss is coming" warning, in which case...

 

Yeah, I'm just gonna go.

post #40 of 137

I never miss out on this. Nearly 10 years of amazing generosity from kind Chewers!

 

Location: NY, NY

International: Yes (I'm a broke ass college student, but this is worth spending a few extra bucks).

I do a significant portion of my Christmas shopping via Amazon. Will try to remember to do so via the CHUD link when I'm doing the purchasing.

post #42 of 137

I'm in! I've been doing this a few years and have made great contact with a few different chewers through it.

 

Brian Owen

International: Why not?

 

post #43 of 137

Shamelessly bumping this for any last-minute sign-ups.  I can't wait to find out who my target is.

post #44 of 137

I'm in. Did it last year and got some awesome gifts.

 

Joshua Massre

Location: GA

International Shipping: Why the hell not!

 

Whoever gets me, PM me and I'll give you the address.

post #45 of 137

I know I haven't been around the boards all that much lately (been lurking, though), but I'm in.  Don't know how much I can spend this year, but I'm still willing to get a gift or two for someone.  I've always had a good time with the gift exchange.

 

Chris Olson

Location: Illinois

International shipping: Nay.
