Lonely Christmas Gift

Yesterday was my freaky day. I logged into msn, and within the first 5minutes, messages from different group of friends came pouring down. My primary school friend, secondary school friend, college friend, uni friend, blogging friends all messaged me with the same topic in mind - Christmas.

Perhaps the scenario described above is considered as a normal occurrence to you (since you are so mighty, so sociable, so famous that everyone has to know you). To me, its a rare scenario because even chatting with two people (on instant messaging program) at the same time is a rare moment for me. Therefore chatting with eight people at the same time can be described as a moment that I've never experienced before.

Because of this, I had a nightmare later that evening. The type of dream where I was standing on the verge of the 38th floor rooftop watching over all those I've known gathered together and enjoying the moment. The sight everyone having a great time was a sweet one. It started off as a sweet dream, but it turned into a nightmare when I realised that my presence was absent. Out of sight, out of mind; I became an outcast, rejected by everyone.

What terrifies me more is that there is a high chance that my Christmas will be exactly like that. Christmas isn't suppose to be like that. Christmas is for everyone to celebrate. Unlike birthdays when its all about the birthday guy, Christmas is a day when everyone gathers and have a great time. Christmas just isn't meant to be celebrated alone, especially not when you have someone who cares for you.
But you know what? This post isn't about me. This post is meant for you. If you celebrate x-mas (especially if you are spending it alone) send me a mail at jommakan@gmail.com along with your postal address and tell me what you want or what you like (an informal mail is good enough). I'll send you a something back to make your day a different one.

Offer opens till 18th of December 2008.
Offer opens to everyone (non-bloggers, asian, and aliens included)

A sample mail could look something like this:
Subject Heading: I demand a xmas gift from 3POINT8
Dear Santa wannabe,

I like branded stuff and I want a LV bag. Then again, I am already expecting a LV bag from my bf. I heard rumours saying that santa owns north pole and has lots of good looking elf working for him. Can I have Legolas Greenleaf from Lord of the Rings for xmas this year?
My name: Kiffy girl
Add: Unit 4, 38 Sarcasm Street, Mozilla, LOL 5354, Mars
Btw, Legolas Greanleaf looks something like this.
(Cool Fact: If you rearrange the word Santa, Satan comes up)


Note: I am planning to send something. So do mail me with a REAL postal address along with a name. Also note that what you receive depends on my mood, my budget and how well I know you. Even better if you can send a picture of you want so that I know how it looks like. (You can choose to mail me even if i do not know you. I'll see what i can come up with)

Warning: I may send something 'unusual'. So, only mail me with your postal add if you are ready for anything. (Don't worry, i won't send anything dangerous like a grenade, live bullet, or anthrax) I will try to send everyone something. If you do not receive anything, it means that I've already sent 'nothing' to you.

It so kind hearted of you. In times like this, it need more people like you to make the world happy, at least part of it. especially in this trying times. I do not need any gift for now, a warm hearted wish will do. Give the gift to someone who really need it. Maybe people in blogsphere can recommend someone to 3point8 who really need it!

U should have greater heart. Go send all orphanages kids something. You'll brighten up their days! =)

Tekkaus said...

Wow! That's really generous of you. =)

I do agree that sending gifts to orphans are much noble act, besides they need the xmas more than any of us, yes?
Problem is.... My idea of 'gift' may not suit them mainly because of these two reasons:
1) Its a gift that requires effort on my side. So I won't be able to mass-manufacture them for a bunch of people. Or rather I should say that I can only give it to a couple of lucky individuals
2) Sending 5~10 grain of rice could be offensive to them, but not to those who knows of my sarcastic nature.

cmon santa 3POINT8, tell me your budget! ;D

3POINT8 said...

[zhengdhong]
Yup, received your mail. I'll see what I can do.

[r.p]
My budget - about 80au
(I've already spent 45au on 15 special edition stamps. So thats about 35au for gifts I suppose)
Anyway, I won't be sending greeting cards. I will be sending something unusual, something out of the ordinary, something worthy to keep.
