Where do you suppose it should go? Should we see if we could have a group set up specifically for it?

At this time I have 38 21 people left on my list. Since I don't check this post to see who received items so far and who hasn't that number can be far less. Plus there are those who have received but have yet to post because they're waiting for Christmas. Here are the names of those who have yet to receive their gift from their Secret Santa OR who may have posted but whose name I have yet to cross off. [spoiler=Warning: Spoiler!]If you're on this list let me know if you did get it or not.  

You can cross me off:)

I wasn't a part of SS this year, but could I join pen pals anyway? Next year I'm planning on doing SS. I don't know how often I'll be able to send out letters/goodies but I would love to be a part of it! If someone starts a thread for this I will PM whoever the main person is with my address :)

I would totally help organize pen pal thingy but I'm going to be away from my laptop for a few days and I don't know how to start up a group! The way I did pen pal thingys back in the Livejournal days was we'd fill out a "survey" type thingy and just choose whoever we want/as many people we want via direct message. Kinda like making a profile. It doesn't really matter how we organize it - I just really love mail! Also, now that I think of it - being on LJ as an 12 year old exchanging mixed CDs with randos is a very terrifying idea now that I look back on it... No one knew I was 12 but they all knew I made good mixed CDs!

I  am so upset you guys. I sent my family in TX a big box of presents....like, most everyone's presents....and it's not there. I sent them when I sent my santee in new York her gifts, like on the 6th or something. I'm starting to believe it won't show up. F-ing great. AND the receipt is lost. I just can't find it. I have a feeling my husband threw it away. kill me. banghead.gif

I had never really shipped anything before this ss exchange and this move to Utah. Definitely had good luck with my ss gift...but man, they scared me with my personal package lol. If I hadn't lost the tracking, I think I would've been more calm, of course. Definitely makes me nervous for next year....I think I'll just find a way to ship everything over there via the company...lesson learned.

I almost always ship boxes and the like Fedex- they just ask less questions about what you're shipping (aka, if I feel like trading beer -I do this with my dad a lot-, I can trade beer without Fedex asking why I'm sending 30 pounds of liquid across the country), and I know that they don't throw my boxes around.  They normally get there in the exact same way they left.. can't beat it.  USPS is fine for smaller packages normally but this is silly!

Yeah I was starting to wonder what happened....and then I was thinking about the contents of the box....and it basically was full of liquids- I shipped it because I don't want to have a checked bag at the airport. But my postal worker dude never asked one thing about what I was shipping.... which is not what I was expecting, and then I was wondering if this stupid small town and their super-lax rules affected me negatively outside of this dumb place, y'know, to where my family might not receive their xmas gifts because other places follow certain rules....,

I feel that girl.. I don't like flying with liquids  because they seem particularly mean to my bags.. Liquids always go Fedex for me, and I still ship them in wine cases if I can.. or I wrap each individual liquid in newspaper and seal the lid with electrical tape.. and I always ship it ground ;)

I only like to fly with the liquids I need for travel, which is pretty small. Unfortunately...I forgot to ship three 5oz containers of that sugar-scrub hand "manicure" stuff....It's not a liquid by any means, and not a gel....It's sort of the consistency of moist sand that you can build a castle with lol. I don't know what the tsa will classify it as....so I'm hoping that on xmas eve, they do as they usually do and not even mess with my bag, just scan it, see I have nothing of concern in there, and let me be. Fingers crossed....'cause that stuff ain't cheap and they're gifts.

Surely it will be fine!  Maybe it'll be like toothpaste!
