trigross, you are seriously awesome

I haven't gotten many gifts that are this spot-on, and certainly not from folks I've never met. This was a box full of everything I love! Regional peanut candy, noir stories, a '70s manga (I have never read a manga but this one looks like a sick Japanese movie put into comic form), a lil teapot, and an assortment of green teas. Like, 75% of the tea I drink is genmaicha so I'm really psyched to try these over the next week. Thank you thank you thank you

Nope, not me. Just an admirer of plain candy packaging.

ok but people needed to know that I saw broken social scene a few months ago and they were very good

thanks so much guy, this was such a delight to find at my door. I had mostly forgotten that I'd be getting something (and to my santee don't give up hope, slowly but surely in the works). Everything's extremely cool, both of the books are awesome but really enjoying reading the jessica abel already—I haven't read anything by her except the radio guide with Ira Glass. I used to read comics like this all the time and I really got out of the habit, so that's a super joy.

I’m glad you like it! I don’t know anything about her but I read a bunch of that at a book store and thought “this seems perfect”

The Pittsburgh chocolate is real good too so...enjoy!

yes glad you like it!! i was trying to find a shirt with a black chevy nova, which is something you mentioned in a post probably like three months ago and probably in a totally offhanded way, but that one seemed sick enough to suffice. glad you like the beer too - that brewery is near where i used to live and all their beers are super sour like that. and finally yes as best as i can tell that is a lightswitch cover. COOL - ADMIN

and yeah thank god for usps flat rate shipping

It was me! Sorry it was late. Thanks for your package! I have yet to have a good moment to try the edibles but I will soon. I lost all my pipes so using Luigi will be hilarious.

The edibles are soooooo good, and they're real lightly dosed cuz I didn't know how much you smoked - I usually do 40mg if I'm going out somewhere I can't smoke, 60-100mg if I'm planning on staying on the couch w/Kiki all day.

Luigi was kinda a gag gift but it comes apart which I though was cool, kinda a bitch to keep airtight tho.

Glad you like! I just bought The Messenger thx 2 tha nintendbro card, firing it up now 8)
