    Default The 2011 Secret Santa Thread -- ATP Style

    ATP-Style meaning: I'll be wearing an old man sweater when I dole out the assignments. And scoffing at the lot of you.


    This is the annual 2011 Secret Santa thread for whoever wants to participate.

    WHAT TO DO:

    1) Send an email to: 2012coachella@gmail.com with your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS. I will take on the responsibility of curating your Santa assignment; who you will be assigned to will be based on my mood and how much I like you; you will not know who your Santa 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) Your Santa assignment will be sent to you on NOVEMBER 23 (in time for Black Friday). Once you discover who you are going to be Santa for, just check this thread to see 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! See the awesomeness in the 2010 thread. Also: 2009 and 2008. No dildos. This is serious business.

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

    6) No n00bs. Sorry. If we’re going to be handing out other people’s names and addresses, we sort of need to know you. Some of these ladies around here don’t need another stalker. You must either a) have a post count of 500 b) have a member vouch for you or c) fly to Honolulu and have a Maui Brewing Company Coconut Porter with Courtney.


    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 movies do you like?

    6) What eating establishments do you like?

    7) What kinds of candy/snack foods do you like?

    8) What sorts of activities do you engage in

    9) What are your sports teams?

    10) What else do you want the Elf Master to know?


    Merry Christmas.

    This would be more interesting if assignments were not 'random'. Go all out and curate the assignments with an eye towards mischief.

    I hope you have the previous years' lists so there isn't too much redundancy. For example, I have never been the benefactor of PF's Coachella tix. Hint. Hint.

    YES!


    1) What is your favorite color? I like them all! Especially if they are in stripe form. I like stripes. And chevrons. And plaid.

    2) What is your T-shirt size? Large. But it better be a boat neck or scoop neck style, because I hate wearing crew neck anything.

    3) What is your favorite animal (if you want something with an animal on it)? Ummm. I like animals when Kiki Smith draws them.

    4) If you would like to receive band merchandise, which band would you choose? Can I steal Bryan's answer and say Sonic Youth? Also Yo La Tengo. Oh, or Dean & Britta if you want to burn me a copy of their 13 Most Beautiful Songs for Andy Warhol Screen Tests, because I have been meaning to listen to that forever.

    5) What movies do you like? Paris Texas, Lost In Translation, The Royal Tenenbaums, Pulp Fiction, The Graduate, Being John Malkovich, Heathers, The Usual Suspects, Almost Famous, The Maltese Falcon, North By Northwest, Memento, Citizen Kane, Roman Holiday, various other obvious and predictable choices.

    6) What eating establishments do you like? I like eating places you've never heard of. I like eating places that don't even exist yet. Also, anywhere top-notch chefs are doing their version of local, seasonal, farm-to-table, in the style of Chez Panisse. But mostly locally I eat at Downtown at HiSAM/Town, and my kitchen.

    7) What kinds of candy/snack foods do you like? I'm trying to be healthy, so right now that includes lots of fresh veggies, nuts, beans, and whole grains. But if you wanted to send me something edible, some sort of regional healthy food from your city would be cool. And I really like unusual spices and tea in pretty packaging. No candy.

    8) What sorts of activities do you engage in? Competitive internet-surfing. Also sometimes reading magazines of the fashion and lifestyle variety, swimming (with about a pound of SPF 60 on me), hiking in the dark before sunrise so I can reach the peak as the sun is coming up and feel badass, icing my sore muscles and spending a lot of time in my gym's sauna and hot tub after aforementioned swimming and hiking, going to art museums and making snarky remarks about what the docent tours get wrong, dancing so so so poorly (preferably after drinking too much), popping blisters on my feet from the heels I wear for aforementioned dancing, swooning over Ira Glass from This American Life on NPR, sending/receiving handwritten letters, driving out into barren landscapes in the middle of nowhere to visit obscure earth art, lusting after well-designed foreign and niche office supplies (like this and this and this), revising this post until it becomes a full-on multi-page essay, and did I mention the internet?

    9) What are your sports teams? I don't really watch sports unless it involves someone taking me on a date with the prospect of really good nookie afterwards, in which case I will occasionally make an exception.

    10) What else do you want the Elf Master to know? Mail to Hawaii takes a fuckload of time, so please use USPS Priority Mail if you don't want it to be on a boat for six weeks.

    1) What is your favorite color? Black, grey, and white. And I have been told by my girlfriend that I already have entirely too much of all three in my wardrobe. So, anything colorful.

    2) What is your T-shirt size? I'm in a weird purgatory between men's medium and large. If it runs tight like a UK shirt or American Appy, I'm a large. Otherwise, medium usually works.

    3) What is your favorite animal (if you want something with an animal on it)? I like clever animals with cute people-like hands. If I go to the zoo, I like watching the animals that build things, cause mischief, play, etc. That said, I can't imagine wanting something with, say, a rock chuck on it.

    4) If you would like to receive band merchandise, which band would you choose? I've been on a big Husker Du kick lately. '80s college rock is my favorite "era" or "genre." I'm not a vinyl collector though; simply don't have the room for it.

    5) What movies do you like? Almost all of my favorite films are '60s European art house classics, or '70s New Hollywood films. Bergman is my favorite filmmaker. Godfather and Godfather, Part II (with a slight preference for Part II), are probably my favorites movies. I like all of the contemporary stuff most people would probably expect (P.T. Anderson, Wong, Charlie Kaufman, Sofia Coppola, etc.) But I can also enjoy a mindless comedy or action film; I enjoy trash as much as art sometimes. That said, I already own way too many DVDs and Blu-rays for my own good.

    6) What eating establishments do you like? I love trying new local restaurants. Total sucker for pizza and carb-heavy comfort food.

    7) What kinds of candy/snack foods do you like? a) Dark chocolate. b) Cookies. c) Combinations of a) and b).

    8) What sorts of activities do you engage in? Music, film, politics, reading and debating about each the foregoing. Literature, when I have the time. Dining and wine. Hiking. Visiting National Parks. Drinking like Don Draper.

    9) What are your sports teams? New York Yankees, Notre Dame football. I get enough grief for those two that I don't really need to pick any more up. Also, the Utah Jazz when they are relevant/playing.

    10) What else do you want the Elf Master to know? I am the most Christmas-loving atheist you will ever meet.
