It's that time of year again!

This is the Secret Santa Thread for whoever wants to participate. TomAZ has graciously accepted the responsibility of randomly assigning people to each other so you will not know who your gift-giver is until your gift arrives. Please send an email to coachellasanta@hotmail.com with your name and address, and fill out and POST the questionnaire below. The questionnaire is for your Secret Santa to look at, so you will need to POST YOUR ANSWERS HERE. When you receive your assigned person from Tom, then just check the message board for what that person likes and buy a gift accordingly.
Gift price range will be from $10-20, and try to be creative and match that person's personality if at all possible.

I am posting this early so you will have time to answer the questionnaire and buy and ship the gifts before Christmas. Please remember to add your name/username somewhere inside or on the package before you ship it. Also, try to mail the gift out no later than December 1st because shipping takes longer during the holiday season.

The deadline to email your address to Tom (coachellasanta@hotmail.com) is November 10th and the deadline to post your questionnaire answers is November 15th.

Please answer the questions below if you want to participate:

1) What is your favorite color?


2) What is your T-shirt size?


3) What is your favorite animal (if you want something with an animal on it)?


4) If you would like to receive band merchandise, which band would you choose? (remember, if you have a lot of merchandise from a particular band, you could get a duplicate, so choose wisely)


5) What is your favorite movie (if you want a t-shirt and/or merchandise related to that movie)?


6) What is your favorite restaurant?


7) What is your favorite candy and/or snack food?

8) Is there a certain, specific item you would like to request?

9) If you could use one word to describe yourself, what would that be?


Thank you for participating and enjoy.

You can participate.

I guess I should add a warning that I can't really force anyone to send you your gift -- since some people didn't get theirs last year. BUYER BEWARE.

Couple more things, kids.

When you send Coachella Santa your email, please be sure to include your board name as well as whatever actual name you would like to have on the package address. This way we'll know who the hell you are.

Also, when Santa gets your email, he will reply with a confirmation. However Santa is a very busy man, with elves to feed and toys to make, and the occasional pre-seasonal public appearance, so he does not always get to check his special Coachella Santa email every day. So don't get your panties in a bunch if it takes a couple days to get your confirmation.

7) What is your favorite candy and/or snack food?
If you can find flamin hot DORITOS then major props to you

8) Is there a certain, specific item you would like to request? No, surprises are fun but something creative and original would be great!
edit: thought of something if the person who gets stuck with me is stumped. Sheet music for piano. I was just looking online for some and a book of any Radiohead album would be awesome (maybe In Rainbows as a first choice). Some of Sigur Ros would be fantastic as would Portishead.

9) If you could use one word to describe yourself, what would that be? complex

Unrelated tangent: I'm torn -- I kind of feel like going home right now, and could possibly get away with it since I'm at, like, 4-5 hours overtime for the week already, but then there's quite a bit of work I can do in the next couple hours and it's hard passing up the money that will come with just gritting my teeth and chugging along here for another 120 minutes.

I mean everyone is a different distance from each other, if you plan accordingly you could probably get it to them on the 23rd.

This should help everyone out.

As such, your specially selected gift(s) will be mailed Dec 2 at the earliest. I hope you don't get anxiety attacks in the anticipation. That is all.
