Yep, it's that time again. Gather round, kiddies, and sit on Santa Cand's lap sign up to get your very own Matazonian to shower with gifts costing around 5 (as of right now, that's about $8 US).

Hooray!

The deadline to sign up is the 25th of November. 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. 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.

Victims will be assigned soon after the sign-up deadline passes, and I'm going to say the deadline for sending gifts should 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.

If you've participated in the past, we will need to know the names of your previous victims to keep you from being paired up with them again. If you don't remember who they were (this is the fifth year we're doing this, after all), you can find last year's thread here. It should have your victims from the first three years in your initial post, and buried somewhere in the thread will be the name of the person you had last year. Ignore the fact that this post is almost identical to my initial post in that thread, please. Pretend I was witty and original this year. tongue.gif

ALSO: Santa may be needing a substitute helper to deal with handing out victims, since one of his evil little elves was injured in a freak reindeer mauling. She was trying to get them to pull her pirate ship or something...we're not quite sure. She'll be okay, but I suspect she might need someone to take her place this year. Any volunteers?

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

So...

Name: Candice
Previous Victim(s): Ashbless, Cheesemoose, Elphaba, and gothictheysay
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. 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.

Previous Victim(s): EvilSpoon, Snoo, Daria
Likes: I love things that are odd and will make you laugh. I'm not adverse to toys that poop candy or things that are grossly funny in general. I love socks and I always wear odd ones that never match. I love design and typography. I think Harley Quinn from batman is fabulous. I also am obsessed with eyes, though I just got rid of a lot of my eye stuff. By no means does the person who draws my name have to get me the specific things listed, it's just a guide. I like to be surprised, so I wouldn't be disappointed with something that I have no idea about.

Dislikes: Pink, cooked vegetables, tomatoes, overly girly crap.

Secondly; go team remembering Cand!!

Name: snoo
Previous Victim(s): Ange, Voices, Cath, CrazyMat
Likes: I like socks, penguins and fraggle rock. I like spots and stripes, cheese, chocolate, Sour Patch Kids. Green. The Northern Lights. Crafty things. Marmite. Labyrinth. Small fuzzy creatures with squify noses.
Dislikes: Anything with meat products, such as gelatine. Tomatoes, useless things, books full of useless "facts", sweets with gelatine in, even in the shape of penguins because then I can't eat them and then it classifies them as useless. Red. Scary stuff, cephalopods, overly girly things, things in bad taste.

I live in the far away land of Canada so keep that in mind if you chose something perishable. I've been delighted with the things that Santa has brought so far. He picks fantastic elves if you ask me.

As an update from last year, I got some of these http://www.colorblanks.com/toys/ which are very cool... And then I got lots of work and moved house. I started working on them recently but they're nowhere near finished yet and once again those pesky students have made lots of paper for me to grade, so my creative things have to be put aside until that is all done, BUT they are awesome and I've got some fun plans for them smile.gif

I'll hop on, but you'll have to wait for me to put any useful information in this post. >.>

Name: Barry
Previous Victim(s): None. Bwa ha ha ha!
Likes: Things which keep my fingers busy rather than dismantling any more of my stuff, things that go bang or fizzle, the ridiculous.
Dislikes: Foods which are all obvious about having vitamins and minerals in them. Not that I'm expecting to be sent leafy greens or anything, I just felt like chuntering on about mistrust of anything you wouldn't consider wrapping in pastry. tongue.gif

Until? Victims are going out soon! tongue.gif

I have distributed lists of names and addresses to both of my evil elves! It's now too late to join (Fuzzy just squeaked in under the deadline). I am not mixing up names this year, as I want it to be a surprise at least once. biggrin.gif Barring any complications, you all should be receiving an elfly PM within the next couple of days.

PS: "elfly" is totally a word. Yup. Just made it up.

I have sent out PMs to all of the people on my list and I got one from moop so I'm assuming his list is done. Everyone should have their victim then?
