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. Also, when you receive your gift, let your Santa know that it has arrived. Please be gracious if you receive something you don't like. Thank your Santa, or one of the elves will keelhaul you (I think we all know which one).

When you sign up, you'll need to let us know the identities of your past three victims. If you don't remember who they were, you can find the threads here: 2012, 2011, and 2010.

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...

Name: Candice
Previous Victim(s): gothictheysay, Cath, and Froggy.
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. Right now I'm in the process of eliminating bulky possessions so moving house isn't such a pain in my bottom; things that don't take up an amazing amount of space would be appreciated. smile.gif

But it's okay; my evil elves won't punish you. The past three victims are listed, after all. You just provided a bit extra. biggrin.gif

Edit: I'm assuming those are in reverse chronological order? So your most recent three were Wittles, Lo, and Hobbes?

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.

Time's up!

You all* should get a PM with your victim's name and address soon. Please bear in mind that half of the victims are being sent out by an elf in the Pacific Time Zone, so those of you on her list will get a PM a bit later than those on my half.

One of us will post here when all of the victims have been sent out.


*Well, almost all of you. Unfortunately, there was one person who failed to send me an address. sad.gif Had to leave you out, sorry.

Assuming Phyllis has sent out her victims (which I'm guessing she has because I have gotten mine), you should all have your victim.

If anyone has not received a victim (that submitted an address) please PM Phyllis or myself so we can sort this out and face palm.

Food can be done, just keep in mind that it takes around a week or more for a package to arrive depending on size.

The shipping also gets very expensive very quickly, so we often recommend ordering from amazon.co.uk or some place similar and having it shipped straight to the person to save on shipping.

Unfortunately that last part takes a bit of the fun of personalization of packaging and what not out, so depending on your budget and what you want to do, it's up to you.

I spent 60 once to send a very awesome personalized gift. laugh.gif
