2021.12.03 01:22 thepastperfect r/Neopets Secret Santa 2021: Matches Are Out/Share Your Gifts
Announcement Post - Introduction and Sign-Ups - Sign-Up Reminder - Matches Are Out/Share Your Gifts - Last Days to Gift Reminder - Main Round Gifting is Over - Reveal Thread and Wrap-Up
Matches are out! If you signed up for one or both of the Neopets Secret Santa exchanges, you should have received a PM on Reddit with the name of your giftee. If you signed up and have not received a match, please PM one of the organizers (u/thepastperfect, u/roxychalk, or u/DizzyOdd for Gifts Kringle, u/ThisIsDivi for Secret SantART) ASAP.
Now it's time to start buying, sending, and making your gifts! These should be delivered any time between now and Sunday, December 19, by 11:59 p.m. NST. Gifts Kringle participants should send gifts directly to their Santee on-site. Please remember to allow Neomails and clear your inbox on Neo, so you and your Santa/Santee can chat. Secret SantART participants should link their gifts to their Santee AND to u/ThisIsDivi via Reddit PM.
Don't forget to thank your Secret Santa!
This is also the place where you can share the gifts you've received or sent so far! You can discuss your Gifts Kringle and Secret SantART gifts in this post. If you just want to share in the general merriment of the holiday season, that's cool too. If you prefer to chat on Discord, come visit our #holidays channel.
Reminder: Do not, under any circumstances, mention Neopets, Discord, Reddit, Secret Santa, Kris Kringle, etc. on Neopets.com. We cannot stress this enough! If you send a Neomail, feel free to call it a "Christmas/holiday gift," which is fine to mention. If you receive a Neomail mentioning any disallowed words/phrases, block the user, delete the Neomail, and let one of us know their username so we can check to see if they're a registered participant and get you a new Santa, if necessary.
We've said this multiple times in multiple years, but please think before you write a NM. If your giftee included their Reddit and/or Discord username in their sign-up, you can always message them there. That way you don't have to worry about it and you can even say "damn" and "shit" and "document" in your messages (don't worry, we won't tell TNT).
Some friendlier reminders for Gifts Kringle: Please keep your inventory below 50 items (so you have room to receive your gifts) and remember to check the site, Neomail, and your notifications or item event log regularly. Gifts that are not accepted within 48 hours will be returned to sender.
We ask that you set your Neopets preferences to accept Neomails from everyone, in case your Santa or your Santee is trying to contact you. (If you normally have your Neomail set to Neofriends-only, you can switch it back after the event is over.) If you allowed your giftee to see your Reddit/Discord usernames, check there for messages as well.
If you haven't received or sent anything so far, don't panic! All participants in the main round need to send at least one gift by Sunday, December 19 at 11:59 p.m. NST. (You are welcome to continue creating or sending more gifts after this date, so long as you send something by December 19.) If you don't, your giftee will be rematched with a backup Santa and you'll be blacklisted from Secret Santa for the rest of eternity or until the organizers forget about your naughty behavior
(but that will never happen because u/thepastperfect is a champion grudge-holder).
A few common questions: What if I didn't get a PM with my giftee's name?
Please contact one of the organizers asap. Matches have been assigned for both Gifts Kringle and Secret SantART, so nobody should be waiting on a match at this point.When should I start drawing/creating/gifting?
You can start now! At least one gift must be sent by December 19, and it's a good idea to get going early in case you get artist's block, your giftee is away, or something goes wrong. You can gift bomb your recipient now, you can keep them on edge and waiting until 11:58 p.m. NST on December 19, or you could sprinkle gifts around likeWhat should I get my giftee for Gifts Kringle?
glitterew, don't do this, no one likes glitter.
If you're lucky, your giftee included some info about their interests (on-site or off-) and a wishlist. If you're not lucky, u/ThisIsDivi wrote up a really good list of ideas for finding out more about your giftee/what they're into here. You can also ask here for suggestions/ideas. If you're completely stuck, some safe bets are holiday-related items; gambling items like Neocola tokens, scratchcards, and Nerkmids; and anything easy to sell, like codestones.How much should I spend for Gifts Kringle?
Only as much as you're comfortable spending! It's the thought that counts, and participants should not bankrupt themselves for this. But if you want to bankrupt yourself, we certainly won't stop you. Also, you should not feel pressured into buying NC/trading for NC items for your giftee -- spending real money is always optional on Neo, and that is not something that should be expected during this exchange.What if my giftee doesn't accept the on-site gifts within 48 hours?
If your giftee doesn't accept the items, they'll be returned to your account after 48 hours and you'll get an NM. We ask that you send your giftee a NM and attempt to send the gifts at least one more time -- your giftee may have been busy, not online, or accidentally cleared the notification and not seen the items. If they don't reply to your NM and/or the gifts time out again, you can message them here if they shared their username. If they didn't, please reach out to one of the organizers and we'll get in touch on your behalf.Can I mention Reddit, Discord, Neocord, I Read It, Secret Santa, Secret SantART, Kris Kringle, Gifts Kringle, Orange Alien Secret Gift Exchange, etc. in my NM?
No. Mentions of Neopets, Reddit, Discord, and related words/phrases are not permitted on Neo. Please don't try to come up with creative ways to get around it, or else you'll a) put your Neo account at risk, b) worry your giftee, c) annoy the organizers, and d) run the risk of getting yourself banned from Neopets Secret Santa in the future.What if I can't contact my giftee via Neomail?
If your giftee's Neomail inbox is full, try sending a Foal in Box. If their inventory is also full, wait a few hours and try again, or you can send a Battledome challenge and use the comments section to ask them to clear their inbox. If your giftee isn't accepting Neomails but shared their Reddit and/or Discord username, try contacting them that way.What if my giftee mentions Reddit, Discord, Secret Santa, etc. on-site?
If you are still unable to contact your giftee via any of those methods, message an organizer and we will get in touch with them via Reddit/Discord on your behalf.
Do not respond to the message. Block the user, delete the Neomail, and let one of the organizers know their username. We will check to see if they're a registered participant and ban them, if necessary.Who do I contact if I need to drop out / need to contact my giftee / have a problem of any kind?
What you do with the gifts is up to you -- you can accept them, but you can also reject them if you feel uncomfortable about it.

2021.12.03 01:22 micawberesque Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart
This can be interpreted in two ways: God will give you what you desire, or, when your delight is God Himself, He will put into your heart desires for those things which He wants to give you. I prefer the latter. Jives with my own experience. Only when God is your delight, purpose, reason, can anything else have it's proper place. Otherwise, the other things become your god. For example, a spouse, a career, a hobby, etc., can all become idols. What's an idol? Whatever you live for, and serve.
Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen. - 1 John 5:21 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1John5:21&version=NKJVExcluding God, the right attitude is "that would be cool, maybe, but if it never happens, that's okay, because whatever God wants for me is what's best for me".
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. - 1 John 5:14-15 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1John5:14-15&version=NKJVMany say God is all powerful but how many actually believe it? If you do believe it, then why worry? Pray, but more importantly keep your eyes and ears open. He will guide you into the answer.

2021.12.03 01:22 From_Adam Independent Contracting/Subcontracting is a Scourge on American Society and It’s NOT Talked About Enough
My Covid/lockdown project was redoing our basement. Did most of the work myself but hired out the carpet installation for a number of good reasons, the least of which is that it’s a skilled job and I don’t know what I’m doing. I wanted it to look good.
When we spoke to the salesman at the store and got it scheduled he told us that the team of installers they were sending were slower but did a really good job. Keep this fact in the back of your kind for a moment.
The installers show up as scheduled and get right to work. I work out of home and chat them up when they’re taking a break. I find out they’re independent contractors. All the tools they have, not provided by the company. The truck they are driving, personal vehicle, all expenses theirs. No benefits, no paid days off.
I ask how they’re paid. It’s by the job, not the hour. They’re not allowed to bid the job either. The salesmen set it up. There’s days where the salesmen fuck up and fuck them and when their expenses are factored in, they’re making less than minimum wage. Now, remember when I told you the salesmen said they were slow? It’s because they insist on doing a good job, even if they make less money.
I learn that this line of work used to be a decent career. Carpet layers were full time employees, with benefits. Not easy work but it was a living.
This is just one of many industries that have pulled this shit on workers and sold it to them as ‘Freedom! You don’t have a boss! You only answer to yourself!’ There’s nothing free about it. This is happening everywhere. There will be billion dollar companies where they will have no one they consider ‘employees’ except for executives and all the work will be subcontracted out to the lowest bidder, from janitors to receptionist so they can get by providing poverty wages under the guise of ‘they’re not actually employees’.
I tipped both installers a hundred dollars because no one works for minimum wage in my home.

2021.12.03 01:22 cmqv7 At home meal kit from restaurant?
Are any restaurants « around » downtown offer some kind of a meal kit ? Where one would do some of the cooking (from very little to most of it) but it’s a nice restaurant meal? I know some existed during the first year of the pandemic but I couldn’t find any still doing it.
Hoping to offer it as a holiday/Christmas gift to my brother and sister-in-law so they can have a nice meal at home, but also get the enjoyment of cooking something (which I know he enjoys!). Any kind of cuisine would do!

2021.12.03 01:22 hautepiece Another depop top seller shopping at my go-to thrift stores…
Ok so idk if anyone has ever had this experience before, but another depop top seller who lives near me keeps shopping at my local thrift stores. Several times they’ve listed items that I had seen at the thrift, but passed on. They do not live in the same city as me, maybe about 40 min away. Normally I wouldn’t care and they’re buying the items I passed on anyways, but it’s been happening more often and is still giving me a lot of anxiety. They can clearly see where my location is based off my listings, and they constantly like new items i post. Ive been shopping at these stores for as long as I remember, since I grew up here. And I hate to admit that I’m starting to feel a little territorial… I feel like I need to go thrifting everyday now so that they don’t buy the items I like before me lol. Anyone else have similar experiences? What do you do? Just ignore it?

2021.12.03 01:22 RedFoxRunner It's been 4 months and I still think about you daily
I feel like your family manipulated you...and I wonder if you still care about me at all.
I understand spending more time with your dad that has dementia, but you didn't have to move 4 hours away full time. You work remotely. You could have easily been a week here and a week there. Even just mon-thurs twice a month would have been enough to make it work.
I went and met that side of your family. I was nice to everyone. Your cousin acted rude to me and I didn't appreciate that so I left with you. You admitted I did nothing wrong but you still got mad at me. You even texted me 2 weeks before that and said your cousin is a jerk, but he made you breakfast. Why did you throw away our year and a half relationship just because your cousin was a jerk? You know he is. You even asked me about marriage that very same day. I remember you telling me you loved me and how affectionate you were just a week prior.
Even when you came to break up with me I feel like you knew it wasn't the right decision. You come over and I Eskimo kissed you. Later that night after you tell me you want to end things we come home and drunkenly have sex. We have sex the next morning too. We lay in bed and have food delivered and watch TV together. I cuddle you then you say we are breaking up still.
I ask if you want the pictures on the fridge and you take them. I carry your stuff with you to your car and you kiss me on the lips goodbye. After that you like most of my Facebook statuses and even wrote on my wall for my bday. I noticed you still had our pictures up.
Does all of that sound like you know your better with me not in your life? I know one day you will realize you made the wrong decision.
I waited 4 months for you to tell me you loved me and you made a mistake. But you didn't. I couldn't take it anymore and I removed you from all of my social media. I cry and think about you everyday. I love you and wish you had meant what you said...that you wanted to spend your life with me and have a family together.

One of our main priorities is making our token safe, fair and completely transparent for all investors. Thats why we have renounced ownership of the Shiba Max contract on launch ensuring no individual or entity has control of Shiba Max, ensuring that it is decentralized and secure for all investors.

Auto-Liquidity Generation: 7% of all Shiba Max transactions will be contributed to building Liquidity ensuring the growth, stability, and sustainability of the token. This feature ensures that the price of the token is backed by a constantly growing liquidity pool. Multiple secure liquidity pools will be added as we grow, and our token is listed on centralized exchanges such as Bilaxy and Hotbit. The rate of contributions will only increase as our community grows and trading volume increases providing stability and security to our investors.
Decentralization: Contract Ownership was renounced at launch as a result of this action no individual or entity has ownership of the contract, making Shiba Max secure and fair for our community and truly decentralized. 100% of Liquidity was locked on launch (Please refer to our FAQ section for link) to ensure security and peace of mind for our investors.Shiba Max was tested extensively using the testnet prior to launch to ensure absolute security and accuracy of function, it was designed to be scalable, self-sustaining, and to scale seamlessly and frictionlessly on a fully autonomous and rapidly growing DeFi ecosystem.
Shiba Maximum Rewards: All holders will have their Shiba Max balance grow through RFI Rewards at intervals as the Shiba Max Army grows. This function will allow the Army to effectively earn interest rewards which will increase as our community grows. Our mission is to ensure that the Shiba Max Army is rewarded as our domination of the Crypto Market continues on.
The Shiba Max NFT Marketplace and its offerings is brimming on the horizon. We will be working garner a roster of the best Digital artists, Influencers, Celebrities, and Athletes to have an all-star lineup of NFT releases at launch. The Dynamic NFT releases would also be paired with Physical Merchandise to add further value to our Marketplace offerings. Airdrops will also be going out to our top shillers and holders.

2021.12.03 01:22 Gardensam1991 Off-Topic: WTF is going on the Harem/Romcom manga as of late?
Aside from the wacky adventures of Chadtarou and The Family, over the past month or so I have seen of couple of romcom manga double down on confessions before reaching their 100th chapters:
Anjou-san bamboozled everyone by suddenly having Seto confess to Anjou just as everyone thought he was about to backtrack and blue balled again.
Girlfriend, Girlfriend had Shino finally express her feelings for Naoya by kissing him - while she was naked and both of them stranded on a deserted island.
Meika-san had Meika and Kouta confess their love for each other which ended with Meika pinning Kouta down and kissing him in the upstairs hallway.
Ayakashi Triangle had Suzu and Matsuri confess to each other - in Chapter 69 no less - and they almost made out near a shrine.
Even Kaguya-sama had Ishigami and Miko about to get down and dirty.
BokuYaba joins the fun with Yamada finally admitting out loud that she likes Ichikawa, and Ichikawa getting the hint that it's him. Meanwhile in Renta-A-Girlfriend: still stuck in a limbo as always.
And that was all within the past month, I didn't even get into Uzaki, Nagatoro, and Komi's developments.
Tadano and Komi: ✅
Nagatoro and Naoto: ✅
Sakurai and Uzaki: ✅
Kaguya and Miyuki: ✅
Rentarou and his 16 girlfriends(in progress going into 100): ✅
Seto and Anjou: ✅
Suzu and Matsuri: ✅
Naoya, Saki, Nagisa, and Shino: ✅
Ishigami and Miko: 🔄(in progress going in a good way)
