    @jadedanc‌ Happy Birthday!

    Also, I think I remember who was crafting those Lego ornaments for last year's gift exchange. :)

    You are really lucky to get one of those custom decorations! Quite lovely.

    I was trying to remember who that was. They are beautiful.

    I got a Secret Santa today.

    Though I missed the deadline for inclusion.

    This is what emotions are.

    @legomatt‌ One of your fellow Bricksetters wanted you included-- how kind!
    Happy Christmas!
    (Would your emoticon like a tissue?)

    Here's a thought: without you, the witty repartee wouldn't be the same, so maybe your gift is to encourage more comments. Perhaps it's both kindness and wit?

    Can't wait to open mine and for my ss receiver to open theirs!

    Very tempted but I'm going to be the only person in my house who isn't getting Lego on Thursday if I did.

    I'm not sure what I'm anticipating most - unwrapping the one I received or seeing if I got it right for my recipient.

    Yeah, you want the recipient to get on and open it, but you can't tell them too as then it won't be so secret.
  • theLEGOmantheLEGOman UKMember Posts: 1,510
    Oh and pictures of what you get before you rip open the boxes, polybags, plastic wrapping etc.

    @legomatt‌ - I feel you, it's hard to hide the tears over here too...................... especially now.

    I'm starting to feel like the May the 4th Hoth Han poly.

    When is it acceptable to have a panic attack that your ss gift hasn't arrived yet? I am asking for a friend

    Nice, the bottom picture on the bricktober figure looks a bit like a dark chrome classic spaceman, that would be real nice.
  • thenosthenos Twin Cities, MNMember Posts: 387
    @margot great theme present, I was very happy to see them
  • theLEGOmantheLEGOman UKMember Posts: 1,510
    Nice, i'm surprised only one more has been opened, i'm thinking about it.
  • ColoradoBricksColoradoBricks Denver, CO, USAMember Posts: 1,640
    ^ I think the number between of people that have opened their gift and the number of people that have posted that they have open their gift is not the same ;-)

    ^^I'm on the verge of caving in myself. Perhaps a glass of wine will help dull the thoughts... And none of that mulled rubbish, a nice Merlot would fit the bill.

    @kempo81‌ Awww, how come?

    Oh no @kempo81‌

    @kempo81 - @rancorbait will hopefully be chasing that up very soon. Sorry to hear about that though, we might have to be a bit stricter on who is allowed to participate next year (eg. have to have been a member for 6 months+).

    That's what did it for me! But then again, wine goes great with LEGO! Proven fact!

    Awww, that stinks. Talk to @Legoboy, he's got a little something for you from me.

    A shoutout to @sidersdd for sending me a couple of series 13 cmfs to go in our stockings. He refused to let me pay him. I really do love Bricksetters!

    I know! Its brilliant. Whilst I was building I thought it would be great to have as an official Lego set. After Christmas may be the Secret Santa will submit it to Ideas or share the instructions.
