It's that time again! Time for you all to sign up to get a victim lucky Matazonian (chosen by Cath or me evil.gif) something special for around £5 (as of right now, that amounts to about $8 US).

The deadline to sign up is the 1st of December. To sign up, simply fill out the thingummy (hey! Firefox recognises thingummy as a valid word. Who knew?) at the bottom of this post with your own information, post it in this thread, and then PM me your address. You need to send a PM even if you think I already have your address (unless you're moop, of course). It makes it a lot easier for me to keep track of everything, and the odds of me actually finding an address sent to me a year ago are slim to none. tongue.gif

Victims will likely be assigned on the 1st, and I'm going to say the deadline for sending gifts should be the 10th, 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 either Cath or myself PM 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.

If you've participated in the past, Cath and I will need to know the names of your previous victims, so you don't get paired up with them again. If you don't remember who they were (this is the fourth year we're doing this, after all), you can find last year's thread here. It should have your victims from the first two years in your initial post, and buried somewhere in the thread will be the name of the person you had last year.

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

So...

Name: Candice
Previous Victim(s): Ashbless, Cheesemoose, and Elphaba
Likes/Dislikes: The past few years 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'd feel bad if I failed to mention it, and then opened the door to find the postman standing there with a side of beef or something. And then I'd wonder where you found a side of beef for £5, and it'd just be an awkward experience all round. My favourite animals are deer, my favourite colour is green, and I harbour fantasies about moving to some remote location to become a beekeeper/hermit. I'm not a big fan of knick-knacks, as a general rule. Looking back at this post, I think I can also add parentheses to my list of likes. Yeesh.


--------------------
I love you in a way that is mystical and eternal and illegal in 20 states.

Likes/Dislikes: I like pretty things. I'm currently an art major so anything related to art or the creating of it is not only an awesome gift, but is extremely useful. I don't like spicy things. I like jewelry with lots of sparkly things on it, and books of any kind. I have an odd love for Hello Kitty and other equally cute things. I love sleep and caffiene. And you. I love you, whoever you are.

Name: Rebecca (TigerLily013 as nick will do)

Prev victims: None! First year this year I'm actually wanting AND able to participate!

Likes: Costume jewelry like mood rings that don't need to be adjusted to fit me (I'm a size 10/11ish in ring), I like boy's chains I can wear around my neck, I'm a sucker for crafts and sentimental creations someone took the time to think about lil' ol' me. Creations someone makes me can include computer made media files (music, wallpapers, video), stuff made of material like cloth, plastic, paper etc, you get the idea.

I collect virtual pets, and I also play World of Warcraft. I like Warlocks <3 Tis the first thing I leveled on there haha. I'm also enjoy things like cats, hello kitty, power rangers (old school please) and shiny things.

I don't know if food would be involved, however if it is something that'll travel well if it comes across the sea. Pocky or something box with low sodium is always a plus. Chocolate delights and other japanese treats are this lady's fancy. I also like a lot of gummy candies, and if they could be sugarfree that would be awesome, but if not no worries!

So Pretty much I like a lot of things lol.

Dislikes: Olives, Pepto Bismol or any food with sodium percentage of higher than 8%. I'm still working on the weight loss and main concern is keeping salt down. A lot in most cases as possible.

Also if sweets be sent to me, send an amount within reason since chocolate has a tendency to lower my will power to behave >_> lol.

Fresh food is tricky to send me as I'm in Canada. I'm not a big fan of the colour pink. I'm a biblioholic. Anything really. People have picked wonderful things in the past so I'm feeling pretty positive that whatever will be great.

This made me laugh, that you hate Pepto SO MUCH that you're ensuring that just in case anyone wanted to send you a gift that helps de-gas you they don't choose to send the pink stuff. Anything but that.

Of course the fact that made me laugh so much might partially be the sleep deprevation.













ps - expect pepto if i'm your secret santa. smile.gif

Funny thing is, it would be worse to send me olives than the Pepto because even on smell those things made me very ill. Pepto needs to be ingested to make me sick lol. But I digest (joking)! laugh.gif

I expect something semi whacky lol.
