More fun with mystery Christmas gifts.

OK, I’m really looking forward to Christmas morning now. Not only do I have two packages from DeadScot to open as well as one from Mac, but I came home from work yesterday to find this:

A new international mystery Christmas gift! I’m not sure who it’s from (so I’ve blurred out the name and part of the address in case they don’t want them broadcast), but it’s from someone in Japan—a place that holds a special fascination for me. At first I thought it was from Zak, but the name on the package isn’t his so I must have more than one person in Japan who reads the blog. The package states quite clearly we’re not to open it until Christmas day so it’s taken up residence under the tree with the other gifts. It’d be great if whomever sent the package would let us know your screen name here at SEB.

Again I want to thank everyone for their generosity. I’d been worrying that this Christmas wouldn’t be as good as in year’s past, but it’s turning out to be very exciting after all. I’m really looking forward to opening these up to see what we’ve gotten and I’m especially intrigued by the package from Japan as I’m pretty sure it’s not anything off of my wish list. OK, so any guesses as to what’s in this package?

  1. Because I’m relentlessly pessimistic, I’d be wary of opening something from someone I don’t know who found my address on my blog. At least, I’d be wary about opening it on Christmas day. I’d want to check it out before to make sure the family wasn’t going to get a nasty surprise.

    That’s just me, but hey, it would give you an excuse to open it early.

  2. “Because I’m relentlessly pessimistic,” said Kim, and a bit paranoid too, I add, I would get my neighbor who installed a frickin stadium light in his front yard to open those for me.


  3. Isn’t Shana based out of Japan?

    I just finished a course in Japanese history and it was extremely interesting.

    Now I can go to Japan to see the Asuka Valley and it’s temples.  Or where the Battle of Sekigahara took place, instead of buying rice our of a vending machine.

    Seven years ago, I would have JUMPED at the chance to go to Japan for a year and teach english.

  4. If it’s making a ticking noise, then I wouldn’t open it.

    If not, then it must be safe! Come on, have a little faith!
