Got the last little bits of JHP's gift today, so it should go out by Wednesday.
CHUD Gift Exchange 2017 - Page 3
Also...I sent you a very relevant question via PM. Get back to me on that as soon as is convenient
Thanks to Jacob for getting the Swag Brag thread started:
Maybe it'll make his day to know that it's more stuff than he received from me last year
Can't wait Fraid. More than last year, you spoil me!
Judas' gifts are ordered and will ship shortly. As per my PM, sorry, I did a direct ship to you because I was a little concerned about timing, so nothing is wrapped or anything and therefore I'm lame.
I’m working on Boone’s gifts. The request for something local kind of threw me for a bit, since I’ve not really had the chance to experience San Diego since I moved here because my back problems started up at around the same time. However I have some ideas on a location that is a great place for that sort of thing, but I had to wait a week because one of the city’s biggest seasonal festivals took place at the location over the weekend and I preferred to go after the festival had ended rather than walk from two miles away (back pain sucks).
Oh man, I didn't know this. That was more just a suggestion, not mandatory, and I hope it didn't come across that way! Sorry to make you go to all that effort!
I'm REALLY nervous about one of them. That you actually HAVE seen it and didn't like it or were indifferent to it or it's just not something you'd wanna see in the first place. I searched high and low to see if I could find you posting any thoughts about it and found nothing. Be just my luck that you did and I missed it and you'll hate it.
The rest I'm pretty certain are slam dunks and will be exquisite additions to any collection.
If there's any of it you don't care for for any reason just send it back to me and I'll reimburse you the shipping costs and we'll try something else.
If you DO like the questionable one then I'm gonna be so happy. Is it stupid that I'm nervous?
Fraid, relax! I can't wait to receive the package. I'm confident in your ability to pick good stuff out for me to watch (you being a DC movie apologist aside). I'm touched you've put so much effort in, man.
No worries, It felt good to get out and get some sun. Funnily enough I found a gift for a family member, but nothing I felt would be good for the gift exchange. However the trip did give me a good idea for a gift that fit the bill as something that is local~ish. I just sent you a PM to ask a few questions before sending the gift.
Ok, I took care of one secret CHUD gift recipient. If DJ doesn't give me his current contact info soon I'm going to give a donation to Roy Moore's campaign in his name.
(kidding, of course. I'll send it to NAMBLA)
No rush at all, my good man.
And by that I mean the band, of course.
DJ already got one of his, the other two are supposed to be delivered tomorrow, on a Sunday, so DJ, if you read this, keep an eye out for a Sunday delivery.
My other recipient's stuff is arriving in two separate orders, one on the 14th-15th, the other as soon as it's back in stock.
I wish I was gift savvy enough to give people things other than movies. But especially given the nature of this community....it's the one thing that I can get the right thing with CERTAINTY. I gave some non movie stuff to MichaelM and Arjen in previous gift exchanges and I hope they didn't think the stuff was lame lol and just were being nice..
Edited by Fraid uh noman - Today at 9:20 am
Sure, Fraid. Sure.
I'm told all of DJ's stuff has been delivered.
Yeah, I don't buy it either. Pretty sure Fraid tried out the fleshlight first.
I would have.
Naw, I think the only one I opened was a Criterion for Arjen a couple years ago because the disc was obviously loose inside and I could not send that to somebody in that condition. I wanted to see the back of the disc as well. If it was scuffed....it was going back. Criterions and steelbooks are bad about getting a floater every so often..
You'll be receiving two separate packages (that's not indicative of how many gifts though lol) should be there by Thursday. All were in great condition so I didn't open anything.
PM me if you want your tracking numbers.
I hope very much that you enjoy this stuff and I've done right by you! Merry Christmas!
