05:53 am - Poll: ACME Deliveries at Penguicon 2013


Penguicon 2012 may be history or nearly so, but Penguicon 2013 is another matter. This time I'm not waiting around and doing things at the last minute. No, this time I am giving myself, and you, nearly a year to ponder, think, consider, scheme, or conspire as the case may be.

I'd like to avoid repeat recipients if possible, so that it isn't "Oh, ACME only delivers to that group." That's at an individual level. It certainly makes sense for, say, a Guest of Honor to get something, but "So & so gets something every year" is what I am concerned about.


Guidelines:

1. Deliveries should be appreciated by or humorous to the recipient. A mild zing is fine, an outright insult is not.

2. Items delivered should be small to ease packaging and transport.

3. Items should be inexpensive, so that all the deliveries combined don't get out of hand.

4. It's best if the delivery is kept a surprise as much as possible. But the delivery ox might need some guidance to the recipient.

5. ACME is not Santa Claus. Please do not suggest items for yourself. It'd spoil the surprise. Exception: you're using the delivery as a gag yourself.

6. If there's something you'd like from ME, go ahead and ask me. Not promising it'll work out, but it won't violate #5.

Numbers 2 and 3 are not an issue if I don't have to purchase and haul the item. I would need to know the size to have packaging ready.

Who can be a recipient? ANYONE who will be there. Jane or Joe Attendee. It doesn't have to be a GoH or a member of con staff. As mentioned above, it would be best to avoid suggesting things for those who had deliveries last Penguicon, to spread things out. But if something is just too good not to do, well, they aren't immune either.

On with the poll!
