    Default The 2010 Secret Santa Thread

    It's that time of year again!

    This is the annual 2010 Secret Santa thread for whoever wants to participate.

    WHAT TO DO:

    1) Send an email to: jadel74@yahoo.com with your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS. I will take on the responsibility of randomly assigning people to their Santa; you will not know who your gift-giver is until your gift arrives.

    2) Answer the questions below and post them. Your Santa will refer back to your post when he/she is trying to figure out what to get you.

    3) Santa assignments will be doled out on DECEMBER 1. Once you discover who you are going to be Santa for, just check the message board for what that person likes. DO NOT POST WHO YOU WILL BE A SANTA FOR.

    4) Buy a gift accordingly and ship it NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 15.
    Gift price maximum is $20. Be creative!

    5) Don't be an asshole. If you sign up, don't leave someone hanging.

    6) No lurkers. Sorry. You must have a post count of 500 to qualify.


    QUESTIONNAIRE: (Please copy and paste into a post of your own, and answer the questions as best you can).


    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?


    5) What is your favorite movie?


    6) What is your favorite restaurant?


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


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


    Merry Christmas.

    There should be a minimum post limit for applicants. What's the fun in buying a gift for a lurker you know nothing about?

    That's a little harsh. Lurkers should just have to post a full body pic, give 3 personal and professional references, and a statement of purpose as to why anyone should give them a gift.

    If some post limitation is instituted, or something to make sure that we actually know the majority of people signing up, then I would be in. I'm not sending shit to someone completely unfamiliar.

    I'll follow your lead on this one; what post count limit would you suggest? I put in 500 but if that's too much or too little, let me know.

    Trust me, I won't keep them. I'll send off the emails and forget they ever existed. I can't find half of the wedding guest addresses I had a few months ago.

    1) What is your favorite color?
    Dark blue I guess.


    2) What is your T-shirt size?
    I guess it can be either a M or a L. Sometimes M fit really well, other times they feel too small. I dunno...


    3) What is your favorite animal (if you want something with an animal on it)?
    DINOSAURS! But really, I love all animals. I love going to zoos...I wish I could just travel to Zoo's all over the world and just take pictures of the animals all day long.

    4) If you would like to receive band merchandise, which band would you choose?
    Honestly, I have plenty of band merchandise...some people say I have too many band shirts. I probably don't really need any more Nirvana stuff. Though I'm never opposed to anything relating to BoC.

    5) What is your favorite movie?
    Jurassic Park


    6) What is your favorite restaurant?
    I don't have one. I don't eat out a lot. I do like Mexican food though.


    7) What is your favorite candy and/or snack food?
    I like all that weird Wonka candy that you can suck on...like nerds, gobstoppers...I also love Now and Laters and reeses peanut butter cups.


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

    Medium.


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


    CAT. Though I'm afraid of becoming that person everyone defaults to buying something with a cat on it because I'm a crazy cat lady. I should probably just accept my fate. CATS!


    4) If you would like to receive band merchandise, which band would you choose?
    If it's a band I like, I'm happy to receive merch. Plastikman, Deerhunter, The Apples in Stereo, Underworld, The Tallest Man on Earth,

    Waiting For Guffman (but I already own it). A movie I also would like to own is Monsoon Wedding.

    6) What is your favorite restaurant?
    Pizza Orgasmica is a favorite go-to. I am also a total sucker for the avocado egg rolls at BJ's Brewhouse.

    7) What is your favorite candy and/or snack food?
    I don't really like candy or snack food.
