It's that time again, my darlings! If you sign up before the 25th of November, you will receive your very own Matazonian to shower with gifts costing around 5 (as of right now, that's about $8 US).

To sign up, simply fill out the form at the bottom of this post with your own information, post it in this thread, and then PM me your address.

Important note: You need to send me your address even if you think I already have it.

The only person who can ignore the above message is moop, since he lives with me. tongue.gif I can remember my own address, but the odds of me actually finding an address sent to me a year ago are slim to none. Every year, someone forgets, and I have to track them down and tell them to go cut me a switch. Don't be that guy. Don't make me whoop you.

Victims will be assigned soon after the sign-up deadline passes. The deadline for sending gifts will be the 10th of December, given that some will have to be sent internationally. There's some wiggle room on the deadline, but be sure to let your victim know if his/her gift will be late (you'll receive the sign-in info for the Secret Santa account when one of Santa's helpers PMs you with your victim's name and address, and you can post in this thread under that username to ask questions, etc.).

Please don't participate if you think you might not be able to follow through. Sometimes things beyond your control can come up, which is perfectly understandable, but if you're going to flake, for the love of Pete, let us know as far in advance as you can, okay? Okay.

In the past, we've always listed all of our previous victims, to make sure no one was paired a second time. Since this is the sixth year we're doing this, I think just the past two victims will suffice. If you don't remember who they were, you can find the threads here: http://www.matazone.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=15282&st=0&p=374506&#entry374506 and http://www.matazone.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=15187&st=0&p=371899&#entry371899.

I think that's everything! PM me if you have any questions/concerns/chocolate/praise that can't go in the thread.

And I'm serious about that switch, people. Don't test me and my evil elves.

So... innocent.gif

Name: Candice
Previous Victim(s): gothictheysay and Cath
Likes/Dislikes: Ever since this started, I've just asked for something to amuse me, and it has yet to fail me. I hate anything banana or cherry flavoured, should Santa feel like sending me food. Oh, and I'm a vegetarian, though I don't know why you'd send me meat. Never hurts to be sure, though. I harbour fantasies about moving to some remote location to become a beekeeper/hermit.

Posted by: Cath Sparrow Nov 1 2012, 06:01 PM

Name: Cath
Previous victims: Oni and Cand
Likes/Dislikes: I like pirates, goth stuff, generally alternative stuff steam punk etc. Odd = good. I've a seriously bad sweet tooth, jewellery and shiney stuff is good to and generally anything silly, amusing or quirky. JUST GET ME SOMETHING FUN!
I hate banana anything, they are the spawn of satan!! I think that reasonably covers it.

(Still copy and paste from last year here. Honest!)

Posted by: froggle-rock Nov 8 2012, 02:33 PM

Previously: Oni (didn't do SS in 2010)
Likes: Frogs. Knickers (UK 12/14). Socks (4-8UK). Practical things for use after the apocalypse (so far, a torch and travel towel). Old things, second hand things. My mug got broke a little while back, so a replacement would be welcomed. Nail polish (I've got quite a few colours but not many glitters with shapes) or nail stickers or stuff for decorating nails. Shoe laces for 14 holed DMs? Stuffs? Erm, feel free to ask in the thread later if you're still stuck. I've tried to be a bit more specific than usual as I know Oni had a hard time figuring something out. Even though the pressie he got me in the end is pretty awesome.
Dislikes: Peas.
*including wasabi peas. -froggy

Posted by: Witless Nov 8 2012, 03:19 PM

Name: Witless
Previous Victims: No one! Never signed up before
Likes: Geeky things, sugary things, and caffeinated things.
Dislikes: Certain musicians, Transformers 2 and the Twilight saga.

Posted by: Mata Nov 11 2012, 08:50 PM

Sometimes it's so tempting to edit people's posts. I really want to change Wittles' post to say that he loves Twilight. Be glad that I'm a benevolent dictator.

Posted by: Cath Sparrow Nov 12 2012, 12:42 PM

Damn it Mata now your just tempting me.

Love the not so benevolent minion/evil secret santa pixie.

Posted by: Witless Nov 12 2012, 12:57 PM

Instantly I see a flaw in secret santa on a forum where too many of the admins feel comfortably close enough to people to be evil.

Posted by: Pikasyuu Nov 12 2012, 06:52 PM

Time's up!

You should all receive your victims soon. smile.gif

Posted by: LoLo Nov 25 2012, 09:39 PM

Alrighty...my list was written on birth control pill instructions and drawn from Fuzzy's hat, and now everyone should have gotten their victims from me. Have fun!

Posted by: Phyllis Nov 25 2012, 09:56 PM

I've sent out my half of the list as well. If you don't have a victim now, PM me!

Posted by: Secret Santa Nov 26 2012, 01:01 PM

Dear Mistress Sarah
The Delivery Jungle Fairies are being complete arses and demanding a phone number for if there is any problems. Could you possibly pass one on to Evil Elf Lo so she can forward it and I can kick their asses into submission.

Your ever loving evil overlo.... erm I mean.... Santa. yup yup that's it, definitely Santa.

Posted by: Secret Santa Nov 27 2012, 10:20 AM

Pikasyuu,
My elves should be with you shortly. Possibly Thursday.

Posted by: Secret Santa Nov 27 2012, 03:46 PM

Dear Sarah

After some research by the Elves we were able to acquire your phone number and the jungle fairies will now be winging its way to you in the next 3-5 days.

Your ever loving evil overlo.... damn I really need to break the habbit, Santa.

Posted by: Pikasyuu Nov 27 2012, 04:58 PM

I see someone jiggled the admin panel so that the rest of us couldn't usefully use the IP lookup tool.
well played.

Posted by: snooodlysnoosnoosnoodle Nov 28 2012, 07:01 PM

I had a package arrive today... not quite sure what to make of it huh.gif

EDIT: I just noticed that I have a PM - the forum didn't make me aware of it arriving so I didn't read it until now! I'm really sorry Santa, I promise to follow the instructions from now on blush.gif

Posted by: Secret Santa Nov 28 2012, 07:44 PM

Dear Madame syuuu

The delivery gnomes have knicked off with your gift and promise that they will deliver it soon. I have to say though I'm not sure I quite trust them (nastey little buggers) but it should hopefully be with you shortly.

Yours sincerely

Secret Santa


Posted by: Secret Santa Nov 28 2012, 09:31 PM

Moop,
Your gifts should be arriving in a few small packages on or near next Thursday, December 6th.

Posted by: Pikasyuu Nov 28 2012, 10:44 PM

Dearest Santa,
I received my gift today. Thank you for the GIANT laugh and smile! I am excite and shall watch tonight..this should be something excellent to munch on before sleep. ^___^ i reallyreallyreally appreciate it! pics to come. everyone else will probably have a good laugh as well. i feels special <3

now, onto who you might be.. (which, i decided to preserve the surprise in lieu of what someone said in IRC yesterday. otherwise, i have the patience of a gnat.)
well.
you did change your typing style from your initial post, which means you must have been present in IRC when i was commenting on the various typing styles of forumites - and the ones i'm extra familiar with frequent IRC. based on your first post, i had you narrowed down to three people.
the DVD says 'for all regions' and is Big Brother related, (also discussed in IRC) which narrows you down to two people.
your gift note included a certain vernacular and speech-style, which cuts you down to one.

MrBrick, where are my feces? tongue.gif

(am i right? dnw to comment until someone confirms/denies. if i'm wrong and you-other-person are my secret santa, i apologize, but you might want to see someone, because you're acting like MrBrick.)

Figured it was easy to work out. I think it should be a rule to take unboxing pictures of SS gifts, btw. I'm intrigued to actually see what people get.

Posted by: Secret Santa Nov 29 2012, 01:20 PM

Dearest Mister Oni,
Ho Ho Ho! You've been so good this year, Santa just couldn't help himself and spoiled you a bit. He hopes you like what he picked out! It should be there within a week or so.
Merry Christmas!
Santa

Posted by: Secret Santa Nov 30 2012, 04:36 PM

Dear Snoo,

I am writing to let you know that 'the letter what has further instructions' is on its way to you.

Also after an intense debate over cookies and winter brew tea, the Secret Santa Collective had voted in favour of you being allowed to open all four parts of your gift (three eBay packages and one letter) once you have all four. Instead of having to wait for Chrimbo. Which is what Santa put forward before we plied him with hot toddys because you already opened one.


Regards,

SS

Posted by: Secret Santa Nov 30 2012, 06:18 PM

Cand,
Your gift should be arriving on or near next week.

Posted by: Secret Santa Nov 30 2012, 06:40 PM

Dear Miss Frog,

I will be arriving down your chimney sometime next week. Please wear that thing you wore last year. You know, with the tassels.

Yours sincerely,
S. Claus

Glad your enjoying them. biggrin.gif

Posted by: Secret Santa Dec 1 2012, 08:51 PM

Dear Mata,

Santa is taking a special personal interest in the construction of your gift this year. He will endeavor to drive his crack team of elves to deliver on schedule, but in usual style of overlings meddling in the jobs of their underlings there is the ever present chance of his giant sausage fingers causing chaos and calamity. Hopefully your gift will be delivered on time, but there is always the remote chance of a delay.

Kind Regards,
Ms. Tinklebell

Santa left me some stuff yesterday.
A thing!

And yet more things! I have at least one project planned for this stuff already. I'll get around to it some time this weekend.

Action Shot:

This router has been sitting upside down for months because it didn't vent well enough when right side up. Hopefully this will take care of that.

Thanks Miss Sarah.

TODAY is the gift sending deadline.

If you're running a little late, that's fine. Just make sure you let your victim know what is going on and when s/he can expect to receive a gift. Don't leave them in the dark, or I'll break out my stern voice and start counting.

You don't want to know what'll happen if I reach 3.

Santa is a very busy man this time of year. I have not forgotten about Mr Brick however. His gift will reach him this week with some luck!

I finally found the elf in charge of Crazymat's gift.
Curled up fast asleep the little scamp! I set the lazy one back to work and have received assurances that the parcel is on it's way.
Now if I can keep the reindeer from the Christmas nog maybe everything will get there on time...

Merry Christmas to All.
Love Santa.

You were right, Santa!

I've received this awesome mug! It's pretty sweet, yo.

Amazon told me who you were, so...

Thanks Dave! I had a suspicion it was you!

I did make a video of me opening, but totally forgot to check my mic was plugged in.

I'd post it, but it's just a silent dude with beard and a knife.

Damn you Amazon, it's supposed to not say, the nasty thing. Anyways, this arrived yesterday.



Santa obviously wants me to start playing with electricity! Clearly he's telling me that!

Seeing some awesome presents here!

Hopefully mine's waiting for me when I get home on the 22nd, so don't be alarmed if you don't hear anything from me till then smile.gif

I do not, no.

Dear Mata,

After an epic struggle the elves were able to corral Santa into a closet before he could cause further delays. Rest assured your gift has been completed and is scheduled for dispatch by express reindeer tomorrow.

In response to this incident Santa's workshop access codes have been revoked. The elves have been briefed to pretend they don't hear him knocking on the door.

Kind Regards,
Ms. Tinklebell,
Senior Craftelf

Got my awsome gift today. This is what I got and I'm guessing my thank go to Snooodle.




Pirate Anne perfume which smells really good and I'm going to stink everyone out with spices (where I normally lurk already is and I only opened it to smell it)


Hatter's Tea Party Embalming Cream. Which also smells really good.


And a hand made cuddly of the tiny friend of Totoro.


He has a tail and everything.

Is anyone still missing their gift? (apart from Crazymat who we know about)

Posted by: CrazyFooIAintGettinOnNoPlane Dec 23 2012, 09:33 PM

I got a tardis mug! Thanks Ashbless!


(Haven't tried it yet as I'm too lazy to acquire a hot beverage)

You're welcome. Glad you like it.

Santa hasn't gotten my gift to me yet but I'll check the post tomorrow and see what is to be seen. : )

Posted by: Ashbless Dec 24 2012, 08:24 PM

It's here! Yay!

I guess the "don't open until the 25th" is because of those cracks I made at work? Hopefully it's not coal. laugh.gif

Thanks Santa!

Yay! A worst case scenario travel guide. Perfect for when I get my act together and finally save the money to travel.
The bowling nuns may have suffered an attack of cat. Last but not least a cool little glowing mushroom.

Awesome art on the wrapping!

Sorry the cookies were challenging to find. Did you find the chocolates or the beer by the front door? If not we'll toast you with them at the gathering of friends today.

Thanks again Santa! Pictures will happen. Probably.
