anyone want to share what crap they actually got?
Probably not worth the effort - I've managed to get two bags of crap before, and there was nothing that great in them. They weren't a horrible shocking disaster either, for $8 I probably got approximately my money's worth. One of the bags was a laptop bag that's a pretty good fit for my laptop I got a year later, for example. There were a bunch of calculators, which I managed to turn into a running joke because someone else gave my sister in law a calculator as a fake gift before a proper nice gift, so for the next 4 gift occasions I was able to include a calculator with her gifts. There was a pretty nice mechanical pencil. Some sort of Sanyo cables that are basically useless for everyone ever. A bunch of "stress ball" squeezy giant pills, some of which were translated into stocking stuffers for christmas. Several of some sort of horrendous MP3 player dealy that would only play MP3s downloaded from their special site that does it kind of like a radio station except it pretty much never worked. I think there might have been one more normal mp3 player too.
It might be worth it for the fun of an exciting mystery gift, but it's almost certainly not worth it for the gift itself.
