Dear Secret Santa,
I think I've managed to be a good kid this year. I've resisted most of my destructive impulses (I mean, have you ever walked through the glasswares section of Ikea and not had a destructive impulse), and have been an exemplary employee. Heck, the institution I work for is dedicated to ocean conservation, so some of that good kharma should rub off on me, right?
Also, we've been playing a lot of Shadows of Brimstone, and let me tell you, we have done more than our fair share of keeping the world free of horrible monsters from beyond!
You may see that I'm really excited for Star Wars games this year. You may have heard there's a movie coming out in December too, which I already have tickets for. The small lad in me that has memories of his father taking him to see "A New Hope" (back before it had that subtitle) when he was wee is just giddy inside.
I hope I've made it to your "good" list this year. I've done everything I can to earn such a status! But don't think I don't expect a good taunting. It's the Santa way!
