Trinkets are what you pillage after the end of the second Opium Wars, and then bring back and keep in your family for a few generations, before getting them priced on Antiques Roadshow in hope of paying for your new teeth,

I would take expensive trinkets (500-600).

I am spending money on my gift in addition to spending time. I expect the giver that gets me should at least spend the minimum ;<

Cause that's the rules.

Because no one wants to be the next Microshock.

I have never participated in one of these, nor had I ever followed any of the threads. This Microshock character piqued my interest, so I spent a while checking out his "glorious" history.

I mean good goddamn.

It's almost enough to turn a newbie off to the whole thing. The fact he's not participating is the only thing that kept me from running to the hills and taking my (hopefully) awesome gift ideas with me. Nevertheless, I am really looking forward to this.

Must we discuss that thing? it is over and done. That said! I'm so excited I can't wait!!! This is probably one of my favorite things to do around Christmas.

MLE Nov 15th, 2010 09:26 AM

I only brought it up because some people started making it sound like it was okay to send trinkets. I was just making sure it was clear that it's kinda not, unless the trinkets are just kinda an add-on.

I feel like he was also unappreciative of the fact I got him a 007 movie where roger moore rides a crocodile car. The nerve.

I know! Some people may think it's a appalling but Octopussy is my favorite Bond movie. I was actually a little jealous.

People take things too literally around here. :) Trinkets and what nots were just figures of speech as I have no idea what the heck I am going to get. Although now I will have to find some of the above to fullfill people expectations. If I recall I got some candy a swear button a simpsons magnet and maybe some other small things last time I was in this.




Tadao Nov 15th, 2010 06:02 PM

Yeah, times change.

The Leader Nov 15th, 2010 06:44 PM

If I get MLE the only things that I will send her will be $25 worth of trinkets and knick-knacks, just to spite her.

I hope she likes porcelain cats as much as I do.

Pentegarn Nov 15th, 2010 07:59 PM

Don't forget a few pet rocks

Pet rocks can be awesome, especially if they're from Clines Corners.

Sam Nov 15th, 2010 09:57 PM

YOU DON'T HAVE TO SEND MLE TRINKETS TO MAKE HER HAPPY, I SENT HER SOME FLOAM PEOPLE ONE YEAR AND I THINK SHE WAS THRILLED TO MAKE A BUTTERFLY MAN.

Pentegarn Nov 15th, 2010 11:10 PM

I must admit I would be thrilled if you sent me Floam People Sam

Ex Leper Nov 15th, 2010 11:14 PM

No pack of Floam is complete without expired gummy snacks. ;)

10,000 Volt Ghost Nov 16th, 2010 12:27 PM

Gonna update the list todays.

dextire Nov 16th, 2010 08:31 PM

Awesome. We already have more people than we did last year!
I'm trying to avoid buying anything until I know who I'm getting. It's not working. :xmas1

SAMfucious

It's no biggie, because literally everyone who tries to spell my name does this, but it's Samfucius (or SAMfucius, if you like. I sure do). But seriously, everyone adds the unnecessary O. I even did it when I first thought of the name, but it didn't look right, so I looked up Confucius and learned the correct spelling, which is not at all obvious.

And hey, at least I didn't have to hear you try to say it out loud. When people try to say that during a game over a headset, I always get 'Sam-fush-us' or my personal favorite (which happens a LOT), 'Sam-Fuck-You-I-Us', sometimes shortened to 'Sam-Fuck-Us'.

But it's a pet peeve, and if you could change that, I would be very grateful.

Samfucius Nov 17th, 2010 05:48 AM

Oh, and 10K Volt Ghost, I was gonna send you some fake mustaches with that letter so we could be gentlemanly together, but they wouldn't fit in the envelope.

10,000 Volt Ghost Nov 17th, 2010 12:28 PM

I'm on it.

Samfucius Nov 17th, 2010 02:45 PM

Dextire already mentioned it, but who has already started purchasing their gifts? I have, but just the smaller filler items. The bigger, better main stuff is waiting.
