So it seems the queen's own delivery men couldn't resist the prospect of sharing in some care themselves and had a rummage around in this awesome care package from @maj before i could get to it

Image

In a scarily accurate distillation of my whole personality he saw fit to include

- Golden crunch creams (perennially underrated)
- a book of golf tips
- a book of crickets greatest ever sledges (although this is bringing up some tender memories from my own career as a crap opening batsman)
- a book of football cliches, jeff
- a cracking scarf knitted by mrs maj herself (modelled expertly below) - tell her i said thanks, its ace

Image

and a great note written in ludicrously nice handwriting with commendably even margin, 10/10. thanks mate this is great :woop:

Got an amazing surprise this morning when I awoke to a package from @pei! She did a fantastic job with it too! Here's an unboxing video (sorry about portrait, it's really tough to hold a phone horizontally one handed).



Image

Spoils:
  • Great tote bag with "Emotional Baggage". There's also a zippered pocket on the inside that'll come in handy.
  • Two incredible candles
  • An excellent homemade care-card
  • Some super neat oatmeal socks (really needed something like these!)
  • A wicked sweet pocket square

Thanks Pei! You're the best!

Awesome package came in today from @CleanThug. This is great-thank you!!!

Thanks for picking up on some of the things I like, like the BLESS bracelet, and including comics+zine stuff. I'm looking forward to learning tons of new stuff from the Fashion Encyclopedia as well. The Dana Lee tee is too tight for me (at least at the moment) so if it ends up not working out within a few months as I keep getting in better shape I'll pass it along to another CT friend. You did a great job with the package!

I got my care-share today from the wonderful @hooplah. This was awesome! Thank you so much!

Here's an extremely awkward video of me unboxing everything and most likely being dumb. p/w is the usual. (pretty sure there's like 30 seconds of me just reading the post card silently)

Really excited to try all these tasty goodies. The kitties in our house are very thankful for the cat treats too! The postcard was very sweet, thanks for writing!

Really excited from all the gifts. I was in desperate need of new socks, haha.

Rick owen wig fit to come soon.

@yoyobeat

Shame the dana doesn't fit, should've went with the large :(

The candy came from one of those huge candy bags that wouldn't fit in the box, does look kind of weird the way I packaged it lol

I got the bless bracelet from the oogabooga store, so I guess that's where the zines from, don't know much about that

Like I said I never got to the book, left my bookmark in there...

Glad you like it!

Got my package today from @nevergreen! :woop:

Sorry for the sound quality in advance!



Notes:

The salsaghetti is pretty good, it's watermelon flavored but also spicy?

The scarf is cotton btw!

EDIT: lmao the CD is actually by "Sadistik", but in my defense the font is hard to read

Thanks for everything! :]

Awesome package from @inherently !

My goal for winter break was to learn to knit and now I've got the equipment for it. The dice are sweet, the blacked out set is rad and I always need more d6s. Btw I do dabble in 3.5 and numenera/the strange as well. Havent had a chance to listen to the CD (no disc drive in my pc). Thanks again for a great care share!

Holy shit, @ques killed this care share, undoubtedly one of the most thoughtful (and delicious) gifts I've ever received.

First of all Ques went through and hand wrapped everything beautifully, which itself is amazing.
Image

And then, the contents of the package are incredible.
Image

Now for what this amazing package contained.

Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami (I am very excited for this)
Shady Acres Raspberry Jalapeno Jam.
HOMEMADE PEPPERMINT BARK
Quin Smith Tea Bergamot Caramels (omfg)
Chickadee Apothecary Herbal Tea
Sacred heart of Jesus candle (have this going right now)
And a lovely note
Spoiler:
Image


This Quin candy is the most amazing candy i have ever had probably, there are only 2 left, which I'm saving for my parents. Peppermint bark is also my favorite thing ever and this is delicious, also not much left of this. I will also be making cornbread tomorrow to have with this Jam, which is AMAZING. Thank you so much Ques, whenever i am in Portland or Austin I'll buy you coffee or ramen or something.

@bhajz glad it got there okay! I was worried the peppermint bark (which i completely stalked your posts for) would crumble in the mail

also, i'll be getting home in 4 days, and my mom tells me there's a package waiting for me, so whoever got me don't worry it didn't get lost in the post

I hope you like the top. It's sat in my chest of drawers for so long i figured it needed a more appreciative owner. If you get a chance take some pictures to show everyone how weird the construction is... There are like four layers and three fabrics and lots of curious holes and i never quite could make sense of how it all fitted together.
