Thank you, mysterious gift giver December 9, 2016 6:00 PM   Subscribe

I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with my life so I did not enter the secret quonsar swap this year. Nevertheless, a mysterious package addressed to my username appeared on my doorstep yesterday, much to the delight of my family.

Thank you, secret non-quonsar, for spreading some joy, dark chocolate, and Pusheen the cat this Christmas season. We all love it! Yay for unexpected gifts and generosity! We'll be paying it forward!

And just for anybody who missed it, the actual Secret Quonsar Thank-You Thread is over here, and is a rolling festival of merriment.

Was it a banjo?

2nd Vaike, you are a treasure, and deserve treasures! I don't think many docs are willing to put themselves out there on the green, and I think it makes a huge difference to people when you do. (Can vouch for it in a couple of instances!)

What a lovely thing for someone to do :)

Yay for that! So nice! Acts of kindness are the best ones.

I can only imagine the mail-delivery-person shaking her head at the name on the address. Did your family know that you're treehorn+bunny?

Awww, that's so sweet. I've not participated in Secret Quonsar, being of limited resources, so I'll just leave here my heartfelt wishes that all MeFites enjoy a happy holiday season and many blessings in the year to come. Hugs for all.

I also was thinking that treehorn+bunny is a site treasure, so I am grateful to whomever found a way to send a gift!

Thank you for my lovely gift, wonderful giver! I haven't opened it but it looks very interesting, and I can't wait to see what it is!

Eeee! I got the greatest gift- I asked for local items, and my giver did not disappoint! A tea towel, embroidery, crocheted squares and a notepad- all made me feel like I'd had a holiday to Pittsburgh. It ended up being the only present I opened on Christmas Day and certainly brightened up my day!
