So let get this underway. Yup the lovely Cand and I are back to organise this years Secret Santa. Same rules as ever £5ish gift to be sent to a person of our choosing. evil.gif

So put your mark if you want to join in and state who you've been santa to in previous years so we can try and avoid giving you the same person again. (plus I might finaly find out who was mine last year tongue.gif ) Also put up an few like and dislikes (and anything you really have aproblem with just to be on the safe side) to help out your SS.

I think that's it I'm sure if I missed anything Cand will add it in.

Soo...

Last year I was Izzy's secret santa, the year before that I believe Kitty recieved a gift from me.
I love punkish-alternative type fashion, art, photography, and books in general. Things that make me laugh are pretty much awesome. Random things are too. Unless it's like, covered in sequins or something, I don't have any problems. I don't like spicy things. Annnnd that's about it.

Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldnít be here if stars hadnít exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - werenít created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget God. The stars died so that you could be here today. ~Lawrence Krauss

Name: Candice
Previous victims: Ashbless and CheeseMoose
Likes/Dislikes: I think the past two years I have just requested something that will make me laugh, and it ended up getting me a titanium spork, caffeinated soap, pirate paraphernalia, and a mix CD. I think I will stick with that request this year, since it has obviously served me well in the past. If Santa finds himself inclined to send food items, I don't like anything banana or cherry flavoured.


We need a deadline for signing up/sending gifts. I'm going to say December 1st for the signup, and I think the last time for posting international parcels is usually sometime around the 10th, so we'll go with that for sending them.

I'll collect all of the addresses again. So, send them my way via PM, even if you think I already have it (unless your name is moop tongue.gif ). It makes it easier to keep track of that way (plus, I tend to lose address books. It's my hidden superpower, I think).

I don't know what to say for likes or dislikes... I like books, I'm kind of picky about food so you probably shouldn't send me anything to be on the safe side (except for maybe smarties... and milk chocolate... mmm) um, I don't know, surprise me.

Name: Mata
Previous victim: Ooo.... I had Smiler or Ryn last year, I believe. I can't remember the year before, sorry!
Likes: Arty or odd books (things for adults with pictures are generally good), steampunky things, vampirey things, electronic music (bloopy bleepy or whooshy more than dancey), small reglious icons (I've got a lovely brass Bhudda, an antique confucian judge, and a two-inch high Russian orthodox triptych)... Interesting stuff... Small things! I'm running out of space in my house, with all my clutter! Edible things are good. I like spicy things, and prefer savoury to sweet (although sweet is still good too, it's just a preference). Unusual foods can be good, but they can also be expensive so don't go down that path just for the novelty. Cool things, odd things... Good stuff.
Dislikes: I'm just finishing the bath stuff from last Christmas, so while smellies are good I think it's safe to say I'm usually covered for that area by my family. I dislike heavy things, not because I actually dislike them, but because they make me feel bad that someone spent six times more on the shipping than on the presents! Other than that, I don't really dislike much! smile.gif

Yes all new comers are welcome. Actually make it easier for us to mix up the addies. biggrin.gif

Go with what Cand said for the deadlines. So if you can pm your addresses to her asap (even if you did it last year, dont expect us to be that organised guy's! tongue.gif ). 1st of december for sign ups and 10th ish for pressies to be sent (depending on how far they need to travel)

PS. Thanks muchly for my pressie last year Izzy the sweet were happily munched and the parrot is perched in my room awaitting some piratey goodness (actually it's still wearing the necklace)

Wow I haven't been on here properly for a while but I can't resist the secret santa-ness!

My previous victim was VoicesIMH and Ange the year before.

I am still veggie so absolutely no gelatine please. I like cute fuzzy things (except monkeys, they are pure evil), Edward Monkton, penguins, sour things...

Marketing amuses me, and I like decently old magazines due to the ads. I like steampunky junky. You get the idea I think?
