  1. I’m sure you would have told us what this thing was if you wanted to, but darn you for making me curious!

  2. It was Peter Potamus. He was the one who sent you that thing that you just got.

    What he sent, I don’t yet know….

  3. I’m betting it was the bacon-flavored “mmmvelopes” and now I’m kicking myself for not sending it to you first.

  4. A printer cover embroidered with keep-evil-away magic sigils?

  5. Or was it Wil Wheaton’s (extremely late) revenge for the Velvet Wesley?

  6. It’s definitely not what I still have to ship John after Phoenix ComiCon…. (although I did pick up a shipping box big enough for it today…)

  7. Now I’m anticipating a news article in about two weeks that says, “Unfortunately, Scalzi passed away today after being buried under the debris of things people sent him, all trying to vy for the best thing of the internet, the thing of all thingies, the vast thingness of the thing. He will be missed. If we ever find him.”

  8. This is a day for anonymous things. I got a nearly anonymous gift today, too. And so very, very welcome it was.

  9. Was it the thing you said you wanted at that thing we went to that time?

  10. You’re welcome. I think.

    An email would have sufficed.

    If that’s not what you’re talking about, in the words of Monty Python, “Carry on with the execution!”

  11. John – Has your comment box always had a window to a ghostly image of you? Because, gosh, I think I’ve been commenting here for — what — four years, and I never noticed it.

  12. Was it the Youtube of a soldier in Iraq demonstrating what he thought of HP5510 printer tech support?

  13. John @ 22, I can’t tell you how many times I cleaned my macbook screen thinking I had a smear on it, until I realised the mark was in John’s comments.
    It was a Doh! moment when I finally woke up to it.

  14. @Andrew Carkner

    Hahhaha… I remember when that first came out and the huge stir it caused. Glad someone else remembers it.

  15. Wait… *I* wanna see the ghostly image smear!

  16. A highly convenient sapper field, perhaps?

  17. Oh, i so now have to just make a random comment like this to see the ghostly image…

  18. Needs more pictures. Anonymous pictures.
