Christmas surprise!

The doorbell rang just a few minutes ago and Courtney signed for a package from Amazon addressed to me. I tried to think if Anne said she had placed any orders through Amazon recently for possible Christmas gifts, but checking with her confirmed that wasn’t the case. So, opening the box I was surprised to find a package for me from DeadScot with a wish for a Merry Christmas.

I have no idea what’s inside it because I haven’t opened it yet. I want to, but I also want to put it under my tree and wait until Christmas morning. It is after all a Christmas gift so I should probably wait until the proper day to open it if I’m going to keep with tradition. That doesn’t stop my curiosity from wondering what’s inside, though.

So I suppose it’s time for a small contest: What do you think is inside the gift from DeadScot? Feel free to get creative with your replies seeing as I don’t really have anything to give away to the winner. Take photos of what you think is inside. Craft lovingly detailed drawings or technical illustrations. Write songs about it. Whatever floats your boat. Come December 25th I’ll let you know who came closest to guessing what it holds.

OMFG! BIG UPDATE NEWS ITEM OF DIRE IMPORTANCE!!

I didn’t realize it sooner, but it turns out there was a second package in that box!

This is just CRAZY! TWO packages to try and guess what’s inside! The tension is nearly overwhelming!

OK, I am excited about this, but I’m not doing a very good job of building up the suspense it seems.

  1. I’ve been here for a few months now, and I’ve read enough of DeadScot’s comments to begin to get a feel for his personality and be able to estimate what’s in the box in an intelligent manner. That said, it’s definitely a goat’s head. Or some sort of dromedary.

  2. Shit!  I don’t even know what’s in there.  Damn ADD.  I think it might be a…hey, have you seen my keys?

  5. That’s awesome GM but you forgot the bagels!

    I’ll right, I’ll end the suspense.  Here’s a pic of Les’ surprise holiday gizmo.

  6. A pox in a box to mix with lox?

    Second one is probably a copy of the 9/11 Commission Report pop-up book that Shrub read. 

    The big box is probably a Chicken Dance Dick Cheney.

  7. Brooks- for that guess, the appropriate prize is, you guessed it, a bunch of little clear plastic bags filled with air.

  8. Box 1 contains Jesus’s own, personal carpentry kit.

    Box 2 contains all the names of God etched onto a grain of rice.

  9. I think I could dig a “Little Jesus Personal Carpentry Kit.” That’d be pretty cool.

    Well, except for that last wood working project. That one’s a bit of a downer.
