    2016's been a bit of a roller coaster. We all got our ups and downs, but it's the end of the year and it's time for a little sharing.

    Secret Santa, mates!

    Everybody got their buddy & gift? Start posting!

    ((I know it's only Dec 23 in San Francisco, but I'm in Berlin and it's already Dec 24 so... going to post this while I still have time.))

    My Secret Receiver will know who she is as soon as she sees this:

    That's a deck of waterproof playing cards.

    So you can keep busy on your flight to NYC for...

    I remember you mentioning something last year, maybe?

    Two tickets to the Broadway showing, 19h00 on 12 Feb, 2017.
    Orchestra Row L
    Seats 1 - 3 -- Aisle seats because you want easy access to the exits.

    Happy Holidays, @Sophie.

    (I know I'm kinda early too but....)

    What do you get for the woman who has everything (or could pretty much steal everything for herself)?

    Tis' my honour to be your secret Santa this year dear Carmen;
    I took the liberty of making you a nice box full of Chocolate Truffles using my Grandma's secret recipe.

    I also know that you're not one for sentiments but I'll hope you'll like this next gift.
    I'm not that good at woodworking but I was able to make a simple music box with recycled wood from the old theatre (and some spare parts I found lying around)

    It plays "Auld Lang Syne".

    I hope that whenever you see the simple music box or hear this tune, you'll always remember that no matter what, you're never alone; you have all of us at VILE. Please never forget us, because we certainly will never forget you.

    Merry Christmas, Carmen.

    Here's a set of antique rubber stamps, in case you want to get crafty!

    You can do all sorts of fun things with them, and they're worth a pretty penny, so keep them safe!

    Merry Christmas, Jade! :D

    It seemed like something one should be able to find at a store, but in the end, in order to get Roc the perfect gift, she was going to have to make it herself.

    Roc was Irish, and therefore had to have an affinity to potatoes, she reasoned, but preparing potatoes was time-consuming, and he probably would rather be at the shooting range.

    There was only one solution for it, and after a few days of work, Neb shipped off her masterpiece in a box labeled "Potato Masher"

    Merry Xmas, Roc!

    Well I will say my dear friend Kidman is the one whom I am sending my gifts to.

    Firstly I am giving you some hot coco mugs made out of chocolate, and some gourmet hot coco to go with them. I give you this to keep yourself warm on those cold nights. a1.bp.blogspot.com__YfagNOZ3XLI_Ttr3K6hjOYI_AAAAAAAAD6A_DnpjrVjNH7I_s1600_blog.jpg

    Secondly I am giving you a charm bracelet with a swallow and a heart locket. So my thoughts of you can always be with you, and that you can always fly back to me.

    Thanks @Jade for the beer, chocolate and book! gonna sure get to use all of that!

    ---

    I'm secret santa to a pilot working in ACME ASS (or was that ACME ATS?)

    A year or some ago, I found a kickstarter campaign that was making pens out of stonewashed titanium. It had bolt action mechanism and uses refillable space pen core!

    You gonna have fun taking it apart and putting it together. Also got a nib for notes.

    Enjoy holidays, Euge Grovington!

    Normally, I wouldn't risk sending gifts to ACME, but this is tradition.

    I am quite sure you have several versions of The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra at your disposal, but I found an edition that might pique your interest.

    quixote-dali.jpg

    This hard-copy of your favorite book... is illustrated by Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech. Yes, that particular Dalí of Catalonia.

    quixote-dali2.jpg

    I thought you might find the art...

    quixote-dali3.jpg

    ...quite unique.

    quixote-dali4.jpg

    @Ivy Monaghan, I'll have someone deliver this to your apartment. It's rather heavy, do take care to lift with your legs and not your back. Merry Christmas to you and yours, my favorite ACME Commander.

    Ever the sentimentalist, Mr Kerr. I thank you, sincerely. The chocolates are wonderful, and the music box will surely come in handy.

    Happy Christmas.

    I had a hard time shopping for this year's Secret Santa assignment. After all, it's difficult to find anything for a man who includes 'work' as a main hobby.

    To @Chase, even robots need to recharge sometimes. This fully reclining office chair will let you sneak in a power nap while still keeping an one eye on your team.

    Deric entered the abandoned warehouse warily. According to one of his confidential informants, this was where the VILE henchman known as "Flag" was hiding out.

    For some reason, Deric had been chosen to bring the man a gift for the holidays as a possibility of getting him to offer them some info on his boss.

    'Why me?' Deric asked himself for what seemed like the thousandth time. All the farmboy knew about his target was what he had heard from some of VILE fellow henchmen when they assaulted Kamchatka a couple years ago. Some said he was an alien, others said he was a demon, others had even more bizarre theories.

    However, one thing they all agreed on was Flag was very big on magic. 'Everybody needs a hobby,' Deric thought as he came across an area of the warehouse that did look like someone had been inhabiting it. Seeing no one around, and starting to get a little creeped out thinking about some of those more bizarre theories he had heard, Deric put the box and card in the middle of the inhabited area.

    "Flag",

    This is a gift from ACME to you in the hopes you may consider a working relationship in the future in exchange for possible immunity from your previous crimes with VILE. We heard you like magic. Have a happy Holiday.

    Det. Storm on behalf of ACME

    Euge's senses revolted as he picked up the glittery object. Normally he would be loudly protesting the so-called fashionable appropriation of such a utilitarian item, but in this case it was somehow right.

    Pepper spray, mixed with glitter, for when the whole world needs to know who you maced. Merry Christmas @Patty
