Was wondering if anyone fancied doing Secret Santa again this year? It was fun last year and I think we managed to get everyone they're presents eventually. tongue.gif
I was just thinking it we wanted to do it we'd need to sort it out quite soon, so that if we've got any going intercontanental there's still plenty of time to do so.

We would indeed!

I'd be willing to help organize it again. The method that we used in the end (after much panic!) last year seemed to work rather well.

Dunno if I can this year. sad.gif

We're moving and I'll be in Germany during Christmas, so I'm not sure how stuff would work with me address wise/making sure my mom doesn't see the gift.

I'll try to get the moving date sorted out though.

*edit* Oh, and I'm totally up for drawing names out of a hat again! biggrin.gif

I'm down to do it again this year. After seeing my parent's expressions when I recieved a purple feather boa marked as being from england via mail, there is no way I could turn down the chance. biggrin.gif

I'm down. There's an amazing dollar store and a post office within a five-block radius of my bed--I'd have to be unimaginably lazy not to send something out.

Yep, definitely count me in.

It was £5 last year if I remember correctly, so I'm guessing we'll go with that again.

So I'm going by the number of responces we've had so far that it's a good idea. tongue.gif

Yeh it was £5 and I cant see a reason to change that. I will point out my organisational skill can be pretty scatty so if Cand doesn't mind it would be great if you could help.

Yup, will do! What Izzy and I ended up doing last year was having everyone PM their addresses to her, then she sent me half the list. She made sure that my half had her name and her half had my name (and moop's name) so we didn't know who got us. Then we picked names out of hats to assign to people.

Izzy, since things are so hectic for you right now, maybe it'd be better if Cath and I do it this year? It was your idea in the first place last year, but with moving and all you might not have guaranteed Internet access. smile.gif

My titanium spork from last year still lives in the pen holder in our computer room, and I just recently used the last of my caffeinated soap! I have yet to really spork someone, though. No one has annoyed me enough when I had it nearby. Its time will come. evil.gif

I'd suspect Pascal is from western Canada. He'd still be up on the hockey and curling but not so fluent in French. : ) He may know a few swear words in Chinese if he happens to be from Vancouver.

Anyway, I'm keen to join in again this year. Last year was loads of fun.

I'd say probably the 1st of December? I think that was our deadline last year.

Okay, I've already started receiving addresses via PM, so I guess I'll be the one collecting those! Everyone who wants to take part: PM me your address. I'll split the list up and send half of it to Cath.

It's also probably a good idea to include in the PM who you drew in last year's Secret Santa to avoid repeats.

I already have a few peoples' addresses, but it's probably best to PM me your address even if you know I should already have it, just in case I can't find my address book (it likes to get lost). moop can ignore this request. tongue.gif

Off the top of my head, the last posting date for a promised delivery by Christmas is 8th December, so start getting your thinking caps on with some general ideas, so when you get allocated a name you can decide if you've got an appropriate idea for that person then go straight out. It would be nice to make sure everyone gets things on time smile.gif
