You can take part in the jiffy share with its A5 envelope limit. Should limit shipping costs.

Got my care-share today from @rjbman

This package fell pretty nicely between Halloween and my birthday, so it's basically a birthday scare-share for me.

I was too excited to wait til I got home so I decided to pop the package open at work...

Image
Spoilers contain closer-up shots of some of the items that have cool details or whatever. Excuse the nail polish. Might not fit my aesthetic but it was for good Halloween times.
Spoiler:

Anyhow, onto the package as I ramble...

I read the note first. Quite surprised that everything fit into a relatively small box. Anyhow, a very nice note that outlines everything that he got me.

Uniqlo socks. Yep, he's right, we can always have more socks. Also they have little doghouses and huskies on them. Huskies are probably in my top 5 favorite dog breeds because they look so ridiculous (derpy wolves). 'Qlo also captured the icy blue eyes nicely. Super cute, super cool!

Less is more pin. Ya know, for now, it's going on my desk. If/when I get my battlejacket going I'll make sure to place the pin on nicely. It's also funny how it's supposed to be minimalist but they mention the website on the side. Pins are always fun, maybe I'll stick it on my beanie or just to random articles of clothing I own.

Ximon the LEGO mini-figure. Who's Ximon? A bespoke rjbman LEGO figure, that's who. I like to imagine he's 100% unique and I have the only one. Either way, he's going on my desk along with all my other collectibles. He's small, so he'll be near the front and he can provide me sci-fi flintstone when I'm writing. He's also got a gun/hand-cannon thing. Given the theme of the package, I think he's a space explorer, so I'm going with that for now.

Masala chai tea bags from a Chicago tea store. I love tea. Tea is great. In fact, I'm drinking tea right now. Chai is really tasty and now I have more chai to experiment with!

Chuppon "cultivation kit with self-watering animal planter." Oh god, how is this a thing? It's so cute. Apparently it'll grow me wild strawberries. Really cute, I'll set this up soon, I think. This can liven up my room some. Apparently this lil guy "drinks" when the plants are thirsty. I have no idea how we'll know when the plants are thirsty, but I'll test it out. Magic is afoot, I think.

Stone Island Shadow Project lookbook. I love lookbooks. Also this isn't really a book because it's only a couple leafs long, but each page is folded... I can't think of the right word, like a pamphlet perhaps. It's actually quite hefty,they used nice glossy paper and everything. I've always been interested in techwear so this lookbook will give me ideas if I ever jump into the aesthetic. Otherwise, I'll look at the cool clothes and drool over the fabrics (I can that, right? Waterproof n all?). It's also in two languages.

Monocle... magazine-book-thing. It's really heavy magazine! The tagline is "a briefing on global affairs, business, culture & design." Sounds cool. I've never seen or heard of this magazine, so it'll be an adventure. There's apparently a mini-book inside about cuisine as curated by Turkish Airlines. Looks like I can start being cultured and proper now. There's a lot of food and fashion in here. I'm going to have fun reading this.

Two books: River of Gods and The Windup Girl. Two sci-fi novels about a futuristic India. rjbman likes the books. They sound really fun. Since I'm basically writing sci-fi for my senior project, I bet I'll be able to gleam a lot of details and ideas from these novels... so entertainment and utility filled! I also need more books in my life. I read a lot less than I'd like.

All-in-all a whole bunch of really nice things. I can't wait to try them out/read them/wear them/do whatever it is I do with them! Thanks a bunch rjbman!

YOU GUYS, I JUST GOT THE GREATEST CARE-SHARE FROM @jrisk.

I made a tiny video that is kind of jerkily cut down so it would fit the vimeo file limit—and to cut down some excited flailing. The password is just the name of the dude in the top corner of this forum. It's about two minutes. Also my hair is tucked into my sweater because the wool mockneck is kinda itchy after awhile. (~~uses for long hair~~~)

[vimeo]http://www.vimeo.com/144834912[/vimeo]

e: the embed isn't working for me so here's a straight link https://vimeo.com/144834912

Here's a full photo:

Image

He sent me some exciting halloween candy, a polaroid camera and some film, the Hamilton the musical soundtrack, internet comics, these really pretty colored pencils, a supreme logo, supreme post-its and a wood incense burner. Just really wonderful all around and probably one of the best gifts I've ever received.

Yoooooooo ty @silvaeri for the awesome care-share!!! genuinely I feel like this is one of the best gifts I have ever gotten. maybe just that I had a stressful week but it felt very special. so so appreciative. that said, thank you silvaeri/Kyle!!

Image

contents:
- a handwritten (that goes a long way) note, pleasantries and information exchanged

- the Complete Works of William Shakespeare - yes!!!!! all of them!! ballpark of ~1M plays/sonnets/what have you. this is actually so fantastic because one of my classes is reading 3 of Willy's plays and Ive been relegated to using crappy internet transcriptions bc I can't afford to buy them in the bookstore!!

- Fireball - i genuinely could not believe you sent me this. I was convinced it was fake. my colleagues and I debated the legality of sending a (real) alcoholic beverage through post as only college students could, and were unable to reach a conclusion. though rest assured,, care-tags community, confirmed to truly have significant alcohol content

- Gummi bears - i already ate all of these Someone please send help

- Sour gummy worms - I also ate these.

- Sea salt dark chocolate wizardry - have not eaten yet. plan to share with (uncomfortably push upon) romantic interest.

- This coffee from Minneapolis - have not eaten or made yet but have been smelling regularly - walnuts and something else?. labeled "Peace Coffee - 100% World Trade" and I'm all bout those labor ethics so needless to say i am psyched.

- Field Notes - i am yet to understand how these work but they do like magic. the "" paper"" is waterproof and tearproof and ink doesnt smudge on it - I don't know what's happening here but it rocks. already drew a regrettable self-portrait on the inside cover in a little daystorm.

- This pen - this pen is AMAZING - one of the nicest-feeling things I think I own. "Swiss made" by "Caran d'Ache" - it writes (and clicks) as elegantly as its name sounds

- "All Go No Slow" sticker - actually very curious as to what this references - a preliminary Altavista search uncovered no obvious options. i love stickers very much and it is neat and going on my laptop .

- paperweight made from a bike something? - I'm sorry I know that sounds careless but I just don't have the explanatory Care-Sharer's Guide To The Galaxy you provided on me. that said, it is a dope (and functional) paperweight - I do own a bike and love it but understand pitifully little of it. I will find what part of my bike this is taken from so i can put it back.

- Some very pleasant-feeling parchment paper - this wrapping paper had an especially nice handfeel. I will re-use it for another gift.

thank you again silvaeri/Kyle!

- Sam

@harmsalmon- Glad it got there safely! I learned after I sent the package that sending alcohol through USPS is a federal offense, who knew!? To answer some of your questions: Field Notes are magic, I have no idea how the waterproofness works but it does it's amazing! Glad you enjoy the pen! @jrisk recommended it. The "All Go No Slow" sticker is a from bicyclist / artist out there who makes really rad stuff. You're correct on the paperweight, it's made out of a bike dropout / track fork-end (which is what the rear wheel is held in on a track bike), it's actually the same exact dropout as the one I have on my bike and it is made to look like the Hennepin Avenue Bridge in Minneapolis. Enjoy the fireball and resulting hangover! Also that coffee is fantastic, it's made by a bunch of my friends in Minneapolis and it's dope.


@ramseames - sent him fireball because the profile said "I am underage...and totally open to receiving alcohol". I figure every freshman / underage college student deserves to learn first hand about the wonders and regret of fireball.

packaged included:

-cake pop maker! (this will be handy for the holidays)

-BLESS stickers
-a BLESS pin! i did indeed put it on my jacket
-a very interesting looking fashion publication filled with interviews and silly pictures

once again thank you!

Ahhh I'm glad you liked it. This is the ridiculously silly note I sent in FULL COLOR because when I printed it out my color printer broke. I made it after I couldn't sleep and read a bunch of subscription box reviews :

I think the bless stickers are supposed to be used as bag handles.

Okay, while the care-share is winding down @schiaparelli and I were talking about how much we love pins and about maybe doing a care-tags pin/patch exchange.

Since pins and patches are small it would be cheaper to ship things and I was thinking setting $20 as the ballpark price.

Yes, so no guarantee you would get a patch or pin, but those would be ideal things to send. I also wasntt planning on a Pryce limit.

I don't mind the idea of separating it from jifshsre but the timing is a bit awkward because I was planning to do the jiffy share after this winds down too.

Thank you so much @Yoder !!!!

The maple syrup has already been split three ways between myself, Katy and my housemate and best of all I know some dogs have been given a treat.

Like I said in the video we have literally *just* got back from a very long trip back from Poland so we are knackered.



Okay - I realised like 2 seconds after I'd thrown the package away and started reading the book that it's actually @bels book! I had no idea - I had to message people to ask if it was actually his or some elaborate care-tags joke that I wasn't part to. In any case I'm leaving the video as is for authenticity
