executioneer Nov 23rd, 2010 03:16 PM

"rules ideas"

BENEFITS FOR PRESENT SENDERS:

get option to pick what kind of cookie
get more cookie (NON PRESENTS WILL ONLY GET 3-6 COOKIES, PRESENTS WILL GET 12+)
probably get extra present in addition to cookie

REQUIRED FOR NON PRESENTS:
have to take picture of you enjoying cookie

Nekoneko061 Nov 23rd, 2010 04:21 PM

Can I do this? I have extra presents from making my secret santa box.

executioneer Nov 23rd, 2010 05:16 PM

i apologize but this is for forum regulars/vets only at this time, if i have extras / not enough participants however I will open it up to newer folks!

THIS IS ALL TRUE

executioneer Nov 23rd, 2010 10:10 PM

okay so let's make this official if you want in send me a PM with information:

#1 address
#2 whether or not you are able to send a gift back
#3 what kind of cookies you prefer (also if there's something cookie related that you are allergic to or just really dislike so i know not to include any in your cookies, like walnuts, dairy, maybe coconut?)
#4 if you are sending a gift back plz say if you would like a small gift or 6 extra cookies in addition to your 12 cookies

executioneer Nov 23rd, 2010 10:14 PM

ALSO: if y'all want to "go together" on presents and can make some kind of arrangement as to how to do it, i wouldn't mind getting more achewood / dinosaur comix t-shirts in 3X or 2X if they're out of 3X (i have the dude has got no mercy, rabbit ambulance, and t-rex's busy day)

Zhukov Nov 24th, 2010 01:30 AM

I live in a quarantine zone that wont allow home made stuff :(

I can send Australian tat to anyone that wants some though.

Esuohlim Nov 24th, 2010 01:44 AM

I'd definitely go for this but I'd feel like a jerk for being a non-reciprocate. Would you accept paypal?

i don't have it set up for accept, you could combine with someone else who does? or is it difficult to do maybe i could set it up before then

edit: i guess it automatically lets you do that anyways, n/m?

Totally fine man... go for it. :xmas1

I'd request some cookies myself, but my sister just sent me two large tins of her own homemade cookies, so I have more than enough to last me a while. YUM. :0

stevetothepast Nov 24th, 2010 08:42 PM

Willie, I would love to get some cookies, I would also love to send you a gift.

*I STILL NEED A ADDRESS

Zomboid Nov 24th, 2010 11:33 PM

I was considering joining the Secret Santa, but this sounds more appealing. I ate like four of Willie's cookies when I was hungover one morning las Christmas break. BOOM! Hangover gone (I also started drinking again shortly thereafter).

captain516 Nov 25th, 2010 12:33 AM

I'ma do this
