View Full Version : You used up all the glue on purpose! (Chirstmas Card Swap!)

Yep! Hurray! Stuff in the mail.

And since I'm quitting my job I will have plenty of time to get my cards together. I PROMISE I WILL SEND OUT CARDS.

Here are the rules and regulations:

1) Deadline for participation is December 2 at 6 p.m. EST. If you haven't sent me an address at that point you will not be participating in the official swap. I'll be sending the list of addresses to participants that evening. Please remember to give about two weeks mailing time for international EoFFers, if you intend to use standard mail. This means international cards should be in the mail no later than December 10. So do your international cards first!

I'm sorry we're a little behind. I suck.

2) No Ralph Wiggum-Syndrome (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0fqsclxaOo) You send everybody a card or you don't participate. This isn't an event to creep on your EoFF crush under the guise of forum participation. If you want to send something to individuals I suggest you PM them yourselves. If cost is an issue, remember that anything counts as a card. Except anthrax. Jerks.

3) Which brings me to another great point. It's totes a crime to send threats or dangerous objects in the mail. If you harass someone or send dangerous stuff I have no problem giving your information over to them so they can complain about you. Don't be an ass. This is about being nice to each other. Spread JOY and GOOD CHEER, motherfuckers. Also, don't send objects in standard envelopes, because they'll probably get removed or destroyed.

4) Don't spam up PM boxes with your addresses to people who post in the thread. All addresses go to foa, then I send them out. Unless, like I said before, you want to arrange individual swaps. In that case gtfo this thread, duh.

5) Delete the address list once your done. No need to have it all floating around out there. Also don't use it for your own nefarious purposes. Also understand you're putting trust into the people here by doing this. foa and EoFF aren't responsible if you pick up a crazy stalker. But I will totally call the cops for you if you do.

6) You don't have to use your real name or your actual physical address, but the address you give must be one at which you receive mail. We don't want to send your neighbors Christmas cards.

7) Have a lot of crazy good fun! Yay!

I NEED A THEME FOR THE CARDS.

It is like a card trading game where you hand out what are essentially commons to you and receive ultra-rare cards back. Plus, if they do not look nifty on the mantle, you can always use them for fuel.

I was hoping Baloki would send me his address by now. But he is slacking A LOT. I'll send addresses before I go to bed but maybe he will join us.

Send in the glitter!!!

Steve
12-06-2011, 09:36 AM
I remember a card full of glitter from a certain EOFF member to me once got destroyed by the security services on the grounds of the fact that they thought there could be terrorist/harmful materials inside. I got the front of the envelope delivered to me with bits of glitter all over it in a plastic baggy and a note saying "sorry we destroyed your christmas card, we did it for security purposes." So funny I actually didn't mind missing out on my glitter bombs!

Edit: If you labeled my card with that so help me God I'll put a pound of glitter in yours!

Can I get cards but not give them?

Because driving to my post office is annoying. It's downtown. Crazy people like to walk in the streets outside of it. I like to naps after work and the post office closes early. I can keep justifying my laziness if you want. :)

12-08-2011, 05:53 AM
Gimme yo' address! I can't guarantee that the cover of the card won't be Clostlinkini, though.

CimminyCricket

You don't have to drive to the post office to send out cards, just put them in your mailbox and put that little red flag up. That's what it's there for.

I'm too late :( I think I still have last year's cards, maybe I'll send those out....;o

Steve
12-09-2011, 09:32 PM
Well my cards are brought but they're going to be a little late (possibly) there's no way for me to send them until at least the 13th because of a utility company being a bunch of idiots and taking 97 out of my account TWICE for the same bill. Dumb fuckers, still I will send mine out but bear in mind mine may arrive a little late :(

Well, if you have one of those post boxes with a key to them, you put your mail in there. The mail men grab it and look to see if it is going out before they put stuff in. I live in an apartment, not some dream house. XD

Also, no cards yet :C But all of mine are going out tomorrow! :D

So far I have received cards from Lynx and Kali, shion, foa, and Cim! Thanks guys n.n

EDIT:

Also I have a small feeling now of what it must be like to receive a howler. I knew it couldn't really be a howler and that it was unlikely you'd splurge on music cards for so many people, but the vivid red and the large letters on the envelope was very intimidating.

Madonna
12-20-2011, 03:43 AM
The mail came late, and I now possess cards from fire_of_avalon and Cim.

I like the top center present, Cim, and the smudge; you are tops.

fire_of_avalon, I like this card; from where did you purchase it? I might use this place for next year.

My only card so far has been one from Lynx and Kali which is awesome btw thanks! Considering just how shit the British Royal Mail is at delivering my post, I will receive my Christmas cards sometime around Valentines day. Eric's will probably turn up having been blown to smithereens by the security services and in response I will have to frame the charred remnants and put them on my wall along with the apology for blowing up a perfectly harmless Christmas card...Again.

I have received one from Shion, I think she may have gone all shy on me because it was signed without a message, I was hoping for pure poetry about the love of clean shaven men and how I had broken her heart by growing a mo. Alas I was to be disappointed, I cried myself to sleep.

I finally got Shion's, foa's, and Lynx & Kali's card! Everyone but Shion is a fucking creeper and needs to start putting return addresses on their letters. Foa's was super duper specific to me! Lynx & Kali's was super cute and shion just wrote her name in it. xD

Madonna
12-22-2011, 06:34 AM
ShlupQuack, than you very much; the drawings are what make it great. Kalilung likes the glitter. She, of course, would.

Cim, has it been that much of a challenge to identify from whom these cards came?

Kalilung
12-22-2011, 07:20 AM
When there's so little worry whether a card is coming back to me or not, it just doesn't seem worth it to expend the effort.

Why did yours get sent back, G13? If your cards are fancy, maybe the weight is the issue. Did you get the correct stamps for sending things abroad? The postal service here will send anything anywhere as long as you have enough postage and a sufficiently correct address.

Time to take pictures of cards and show them off. Thanks, everyone, who sent theirs off already; you guys are the best.

G13
12-26-2011, 01:59 AM
I don't have a mailbox, just a mail slot on the front door that I pin them to. I get the feeling he thinks they're cards from other people and keeps slipping them through rather than taking them. I'm going to the post office tomorrow.

I have received another couple of cards today and yesterday. Rachael (Miss Lulu, not part of the swap but sent me one anyhow because she just :love:'s me that much) Ed's arrived to me as well though if I hadn't recognized the return address on it I might have mistaken it for a card from Face as there was no signature and finally today Amanda's arrived. Amanda's and Rachael's made me smile the most, Rachael's for the personal message inside and Amanda's for the scarily accurate if slightly too sloped of jaw and shoulder portrait of me though I'm semi-disappointed she didn't go for the Mullet Steve of sims 3 fame.

Did I state Iceglow's and Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World's cards came? They are both very nice; thank you, gentlemen.

The shark's card has landed. I suppose I must unlaze myself and photograph these cards and share the joy, but until then, see a little of what you missed from me this year, folks:

Still drafting and clearly uncolored, but it is somewhat related to the final product (which was not censored oh my).

I believe I've thanks everyone in person, but I realized I haven't put a thank you up on the thread.

So for all the cards, thank you very much! A tip of the hat to Michael and Amanda's artistic talent.
