  1. I also prefer 9 rounds.
  2. Sorry this has been such a pain for you BB. Looking forward to getting this back on track (I already have a podcast picked out for my next drawing session).
  3. Fine I'm in.
  4. Thank you so much, Zar! Your gifts were amazing. I've gotten to try out both games and they are both so much fun. And thanks to Lany for being an amazing host as always! <3
  5. When do we get the Santa reveal? I'm so curious.
  6. Got my final box and it had a lovely cozy, purple scarf in it! The box I got yesterday had some yummy salty licorice which I am of course already eating! Thank you so, so, so much, SS! I still have no idea who you are, except you have excellent taste and you're too damn generous!
  7. There's not a lot of Santa guessing this year... I have no clue who my SS is either. Lots of fun hearing about everyone's gifts though!!
  8. Received one more box but waiting to open it until I get the last one.
  9. So turns out the box I received from Amazon yesterday that I had left unopened in the corner was in fact not the book I had ordered, but a very generous gift from my wonderful Secret Santa! After I received a bit of a poke from Lany this evening I went to open the box to find three Amazon gift bags. The first gift I opened was the little game Love Letter! I have never played it, but I had heard of it before and it looks awesome. I have since watched the Tabletop with Wil Wheaton episodes on it and can't wait to play. Great choice, SS! Second gift I opened was another tabletop game; Seven Wonders Duel which is a game I've wanted to play with the husband for a while. Thank you for granting my wish! Last gift I opened is a hand cream with a Lavender scent. It smells really wonderful, and it's my favorite color. Gifts Thank you so much SS! A little elf (well, Lany) tells me I still have to keep my eye out for packages from you, and you have already been so generous! I will post again as soon as I've got something to report.
  10. I'm in! So glad I didn't miss the deadline! Questionnaire: Favorite Type of Food (i.e. Italian, Mexican, McDonald's, Burger King, etc): Vegetarian. Favorite Scent (i.e. Fruity, Vanilla, Flowery, etc): I really like a lot of different scents. Favorites include vanilla, coconut, and fall smells, like cinnamon, apple. Favorite Hobby (i.e. Scrap booking, Photography, things you collect, etc): Gaming (primarily on PS4 - Still obsessed with Overwatch), Birding, Podcasts, Hiking, Board Games, sometimes crafty stuff, like paining (acrylics) etc. True Crime is a bit of a guilty pleasure. Favorite books or types (romance, true store, mystery or just one you would like): Non-Fiction mostly, and some fantasy of course. (As a book gift, I would love a philosophy book or academic book that has influenced you.) Favorite animal: Dogs, Birds, + any animal that's cute really! I really <3 animals. Favorite movies or types (romance, comedy or just a DVD/VHS you would like): Documentaries. James Bond. Marvel movies. I do sometimes like a good indie comedy (a la 'Don't think twice' or 'The Big Sick'). Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like: I mostly listen to spotify. I am a bit of a Eurovision geek. Do you collect anything? Branded beer glasses. Does blankets count? I just really love a good blanket. Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need? I can always make room for; make up (I do need new eye liner but any makeup is fun), pots and pans and other cooking stuff, candles, nice smelling lotions and such, earrings or other jewelry, board games (ideally 2 player games or co-op games for 4), scarfs and/or mittens, and blankets of course. I also enjoy a good t-shirt. Also, my dog is small (16 lbs) and likes to chew on things. What is your favorite: a. Color? Purple! b. Type of candy? Licorice! Especially salty licorice. c. Type of munchie? I love munching in general. Love myself some cheese, olives, potato chips. I am always looking for All-Dressed Chips or Pepper Jack Skinny Pop. d. Puzzle to do? I do crosswords in Swedish, but that's not very helpful, is it? I do love myself some piccross. And once in a while I'll do a jigsaw. Do you collect anything for Christmas? (i.e. certain types of ornaments, nativities, snowmen...etc.) . Nope If you were going to theme Christmas with just one word... what would it be? Cozy Big family Christmas with everyone down to 2nd cousins...or just immediate family in their jammies? Jammies! Favorite Christmas movie and why? Die Hard, because it's a masterpiece. I don't really associate any children's movie with Christmas. Religious or non-religious Christmas/Chaunaka/: Non-Religious Christmas (I'm from Sweden originally, so I usually celebrate Swedish style on December 24th. This year I will be spending Christmas with my in-laws in South Carolina though, so it will be more American.) If you could spend Christmas in any one of these places, which one would you choose and why: a. A beach on a tropical island just a few very close family or friends, be lazy and open presents and then have a non traditional dinner including Pina Coladas and BBQ shrimp, wearing swimsuits, Bermuda shorts and tank tops b. Tiny cabin in the woods, fire going, very rustic, warm and cozy with your close family and friends, wearing jeans and sweaters. c. Biltmore Estates, full regalia, all glitter and glitz, all your close family and friends, wearing black tie and velvet d. NYC Christmas, Park Avenue, last minute hustle and bustle, haute couture with a 4 course meal and champagne with 50 of your favorite people. Wearing, of course. the latest fashion favorites. Favorite Christmas music: Just the generic stuff What is your Christmas morning like" a. chaotic b. slow and relaxed c. organized, but fast paced d. "Christmas is HOW SOON???!!!!" e. all of the above. Name something you want but will never buy for yourself, just because you cannot see yourself being that flamboyant. I think last year I put LEGO here, and that's still true. I guess 'toys' in general, like fancy train sets, for instance, or an expensive but beautiful D.Va Statue. What sizes do you wear (optional answer if you would prefer to not have clothing) Ladies Large. What colors are in your home: Pretty neutral in general. Purples and dark blues in living room and black/white with some red in bedroom. What style is your home decorated in? (i.e. ethnic, country, southwestern...etc): IKEA chic Anything else your SS should know about you? I don't want any Funko Pops, please (I have a few that I really like, but am not looking to get more). Otherwise, I'm easy to please! I will love your gift, I know it. I will be away Nov 18th to Dec 2nd, so please try to send gift after that, to avoid issues with the post office. Sorry for the information overload above, but wanted to make it easy for you! Do you have any wish lists? Nope. ETA: In case you are stuck, a board game I would love is 7 wonders duel.
  11. I'm unfortunately out until April 11th - and then I will switch to having tons of time.
  12. Yes, but it would be a bit awkward to wear the same outfit as Mr. TC.
  13. Thanks for all the input! I really like the idea of a long sleeve dress! Thanks for the links, Zabz, I really like the first one especially (although I'm still a bit apprehensive when it comes to wearing black at weddings). I tend to just find flowy, summery dresses when I look... I will also be wearing a shawl, but usually they don't help as much as I would like and are often a bit of a pain to deal with.
  14. I really want to play, but I'll have a very busy period end of March and early April. Let me know if you want me to be a stand in, or if you want me to try to play anyways? If I'm playing I'm happy with any theme.
  15. I'm bumping this thread because I need ideas! I am going to a wedding on March 31st on Long Island, NY and although I own a bunch of dresses I am very, very worried about getting too cold. I tend to get cold easily and don't know what to wear that is 'fancy' enough for a wedding but will also keep me warm?
