Listen to me out there, whomever my Secret Santa is, I want to tell you something:

YOU ARE A GOLDEN GOD/GODDESS, BORN OF HEAVEN RETURNED TO EARTH TO LAY UPON THE EARTH YOUR BOUNTY OF MUNIFICENCE AND GENEROSITY.

You perhaps even be Santa Claus, Sinterklaas, Kris Kringle, Baba Chaghaloo (my favorite), Saint Nicholas, Hanukkah Harry . . . the very FATHER CHRISTMAS. Maybe even the Great Secret Geek whispered of long ago in the dark ages.

I thank you, whomever you are; Thank you.

And while I vacillate whether or not to admit here what you sent me -- as you very well know what you sent me and expositing your actions may sound like ringing my own bell of fortune -- I wish I knew who you were so I could tell everyone how generous you were and how much it really is appreciated.

Let me then just speak in generalities. I had several small items in my wish list, but rather than choose any one of those readily-available ones, you chose a bruiser. And not only did you choose a bruiser, you threw in another bruiser at that. TWO BRUISERS! I'll be black and blue till March! Horay!

I don't know who you are nor why you felt the need to be so magnanimous(I can only imagine you felt that the two you sent me were necessary to have and play and appreciate), but your beneficence is staggering. I would say that I am speechless, but, as you can see, I have a great deal to say about it.

Thank you so much.

You have colored my view of everything! Next stop: the Mooooooooooooooooon!

You know, I was just about to do just that -- and maybe one of you can convince me otherwise -- but I think I might just keep it between me and Santa Claus.

Santa knows what Santa sent. . . and I couldn't honestly have been more suprised and overwhelmed by what I recieved. I was expecting something like "Cartegena." I was so dumbfounded that when my girlfriend said that there was a 12 pound package from Boards and Bits at home I didn't even register it as a possible Secret Santa gift. I thought, "What the hell did I pre-order from Boards and Bits?"

I honestly thought it was something I had long-forgotten and maybe now was expected to pay for . . . and fearing I had ordered something batshit crazy like copies of Roads & Boats and Antiquity that I totally could not afford.

I was actually afeared.

Anyway, Santa, whomever you are.... Thank you. You can somehow let me know if you want me to share . . . .

I'll post something on the aforementioned thread to let the Santa know I got it. . . in case he/she isn't hanging a line out here in forum land.

Oh, and a BRUISER is a big game! Hellas might be fun, but even if you threw it with both arms at someone sleeping on a couch it might not bruise you. These games, though, would bruise even if you half-caught them with one hand from a dropped distance of six inches! Big boxes!

In heaven,

KJ

I happen to have secret, inside knowledge of what the games are, but I am under an NDA and unable to disclose the names. And 'No', I'm not the Santa-giver person.

Enjoy the games, Kris! I admit that I'm WAY jealous!!

Heck, when I was a kid all we had was a rock to play with. And we played rock, something, and something else. Let me tell you, it didn't have any replay value until someone invented paper and scissors. But it was the only thing we had and we liked it!

OMG, Kris, I am soooooo sorry! Unfortunately we sent you the wrong package (how embarrassing, after posting this message and everything).

We have your copy of Cartagena right here!
