    Default Secret Santa 2017 -- curated

    Command decision: I'm delaying this a week for others who might want to join. BLACK FRIDAY (this coming Friday Nov 24th). Have your posts and and emails in by then!


    Hey hey hey...it's Secret Santa time!

    This year we are going to something a bit different: I am not drawing names out of a hat. I am going to match you with someone I think you know and like, a sort of curated Secret Santa. Yes, cap'n did this some years back, and I am stealing it because it's a terrific idea. Cap'n, you are welcome to join. I don't care if you're someone who doesn't like me or vice versa. This is CHRISTMAS, y'all. Open to any and all boardies.

    A few reminders....

    If anyone wants to join whom we don't know well, you will need to have another longtime boardie vouch for you.... I am not going to send you a person's address without knowing that you're not a complete psycho.

    Email me at jandab99@gmail.com with your board name, your first and last real name and address, and answer these questions below and post them to this thread. The title of your email should be 2017 Secret Santa. We need to have ALL THE NAMES by Thursday, Nov 16 pm PST 6pm. Once all names have been received via email I will reply with the board name, real name, and address of who your recipient will be.

    Anyone whose address has remained the same for the past 2 or 3 years (or more) and you were in my secret santa -- I may still have your address on file. just give me your email address so I can search for you in my email mailbox.

    ALL GIFTS NEED TO BE MAILED OUT ON OR BEFORE DECEMBER 7th. Don't be the asshat who mails the gift late. That's just rude.

    Please make sure to pay attention to where you are sending these gifts as some participants live in colder climates and liquids are subject to freezing! Wrap contents in a leak proof bag!
    We'll set the price limit between $25 and $50 this year. Don't be stingy.

    As an aside:
    You may wrap your gift (if allowed by law) and box it up. You may add a card. If you want your recipient to know who you are, please include a note saying who you are--with board name and real name. Last year at my work our secret santa was weird in that we did not have to EVER reveal who we are. That kind of pissed me off because my giver did not reveal himself. Do what you want, but remember I know who everyone is, so...I might reveal who you are anyway!

    Here are this year's questions for you to answer so your Santa can get to know your tastes a bit better. PLEASE COPY AND PASTE THESE QUESTIONS, AND ADD YOUR ANSWER AS A RESPONSE TO THIS POST!!!

    1) What is your favorite color or combination of colors for a T-shirt or clothes item?

    2) Favorite animal? (If you want a trinket or salt and pepper shakers or tights or whatever)

    3) Favorite bands from whom you would like merchandise? (do you like shirts, mugs, posters for these bands?)

    4) T shirt size?

    5) Sports team?

    6) Do you have any hobbies?

    7) Shoe size?

    8) Do you like hats? What kind/color?

    9) Do you have any pets that you want to pamper or dress up? (tee hee) Please give the pets' size and/or weight and height. I sent Marlo a dog shirt one year that was way too small.

    10) Favorite alcohol? Be careful with your shipping as I think this may be illegal to ship.

    11) Favorite restaurant?

    12) Favorite candy or snack item?

    13) Is there any special item you're looking for? If you can, try not to be too specific so your Santa can be more creative.

    (14) PLEASE LET ME KNOW if you are willing to ship to a recipient out of the country. Shipping may be extra expensive for those people and I don't want anyone stuck with someone who is just too expensive for them. If you would rather not have an out of country recipient, let me know that too.)

    Ok people, let's be creative and have fun!

    Post your answers here in this thread!

    1) What is your favorite color or combination of colors for a T-shirt or clothes item?

    Blue/grey/black shirts (not combined)

    2) Favorite animal? (If you want a trinket or salt and pepper shakers or tights or whatever)

    Sloth

    3) Favorite bands from whom you would like merchandise? (do you like shirts, mugs, posters for these bands?)

    I could maybe use a Pink Floyd shirt, don't have one. Always an RATM fan; If you were to find the shirt that has a guy on the front with the "e" as his head (it's stencil style I believe, think Banksy), and it says "We have determined that your whole system sucks", I'd be pretty pumped to have that.


    4) T shirt size?

    Medium

    5) Sports team?

    Oakland Athletics

    6) Do you have any hobbies?

    I cycle. Cycling, or just socks with bikes are always cool.

    7) Shoe size?

    8-8.5 depending on shoe. European size is 40-41, again, depending. My Ecco's are 41, my cycling shoes I believe are 40. I'll confirm.

    8) Do you like hats? What kind/color?

    Typical baseball style. Open on color of its something cool.

    9) Do you have any pets that you want to pamper or dress up? (tee hee) Please give the pets' size and/or weight and height. I sent Marlo a dog shirt one year that was way too small.

    My doge is huge, 75lbs. I'll get more details. Typically hard to find her anything. I never elaborated on this because it's just difficult to find things her size, they're always small.

    10) Favorite alcohol? Be careful with your shipping as I think this may be illegal to ship.

    It is illegal, but half the shit we do is also illegal. Ha! Anyway...whiskey!! And beer. Local to you that I can't get would be great.

    11) Favorite restaurant?

    In-N-Out

    12) Favorite candy or snack item?

    Kit Kat, Reese's peanut butter cups.

    13) Is there any special item you're looking for? If you can, try not to be too specific so your Santa can be more creative.

    I really enjoy socks. I have not worn white or plain socks in over 20yrs. Feel free to get creative. Contrary to the suggestion in this question, there are trump sucks out there with his hair being sown in. I'd love to step on him daily.



    (14) PLEASE LET ME KNOW if you are willing to ship to a recipient out of the country. Shipping may be extra expensive for those people and I don't want anyone stuck with someone who is just too expensive for them. If you would rather not have an out of country recipient, let me know that too.)

    I'd be interested. Might want to work something out local for them, though. But that takes the secret out.


    I'm in.

    I might draw someone out of a hat to be mine, and for me to send to. just to be fair.

    Here are this year's questions for you to answer so your Santa can get to know your tastes a bit better. PLEASE COPY AND PASTE THESE QUESTIONS, AND ADD YOUR ANSWER AS A RESPONSE TO THIS POST!!!

    1) What is your favorite color or combination of colors for a T-shirt or clothes item? rainbow colors, neon colors (fluorescent yellow, green, pink, blue, ORANGE.), navy and periwinkle blue, silver, gold, rose-gold.

    2) Favorite animal? (If you want a trinket or salt and pepper shakers or tights or whatever)

    elephants, pigs. go nuts.

    3) Favorite bands from whom you would like merchandise? (do you like shirts, mugs, posters for these bands?)

    dungen, tame impala, portishead, radiohead, catherine wheel, trashcan sinatras, morrissey, deoeche mode, elastica, new one for me THE VERVE, the Cardigans, Bjork, Perfume Genius, Grizzly Bear

    4) T shirt size?

    if it's men's size S, women's size M or L

    5) Sports team?

    no sports team. But if you must, Scottsdale Community College avocadoes.

    6) Do you have any hobbies?

    Singing, writing, reading, stationery, tv, movies (CLASSIC MOVIES - Hitchcock, Kubrick, David Lynch). I do no have any copies of any David Lynch movies and I have a bluray player, so any Lynch movie would be good, esp Lost Highway. Any nonfiction books about the music business would be cool. Go crazy with this category.

    7) Shoe size? 6.5M

    8) Do you like hats? What kind/color? those knitted up beanies. a band beanie would be cool.

    9) Do you have any pets that you want to pamper or dress up? (tee hee) Please give the pets' size and/or weight and height. I sent Marlo a dog shirt one year that was way too small.

    I have a 16 pound "medium" size female shih tzu who looks like a pretty princess. anything princessy would be cute. I have a male pug/chihuahua who is so sweet and overpleasing. he licks me and licks me because he is so grateful that I rescued him from the pound. he is a fat boy. I did not know that pugs tend to overeat. oops. between 16 and 20 pounds size medium. Or about fat size small.

    10) Favorite alcohol? Be careful with your shipping as I think this may be illegal to ship.

    hey hey hey Beth turned me onto sours. I'd like a good sour beer.

    11) Favorite restaurant?

    hmm Starbucks? lol. There is a local record store called Stinkweed's, you want to send a gift card, that'd be the best place. or Crescent Ballroom. Valley Bar. Film Bar.

    12) Favorite candy or snack item?

    reese's peanut butter cups, starburst. bonus if you can find lime or lemon-lime flavored starburst anywhere. Lime starburst is like the holy grail to me. Other lime flavoured candies are also welcome.

    13) Is there any special item you're looking for? If you can, try not to be too specific so your Santa can be more creative.

    I want vinyl. any vinyl. turn me onto something you like. give me something rare-ish that I like.

    Also. I like antiques. If you are able to ship am antique apron or antique linens, I am really getting into antique clothing and linens, like old tablecloths or bedspreads, crocheted or quilted. I mean seriously vintage old stuff. Only if you are up to the task. CREATOR LEGOS. I seriously want to get into making my own LEGO creations. Wal-Mart has these.

    (14) PLEASE LET ME KNOW if you are willing to ship to a recipient out of the country. Shipping may be extra expensive for those people and I don't want anyone stuck with someone who is just too expensive for them. If you would rather not have an out of country recipient, let me know that too.)

    I am willing to ship out of the country

    It has come to my attention that there are some boardies that do not have access to the board (for whatever reason) that may want to join this secret santa campaign. Can you please let other boardies know about this? Thank you, people. Let's make this the best secret santa yet!

    Ok, seems like there are only 5 of us (someone else emailed me and didn't post here). Should I extend the deadline? Either this board is dead, or no one trusts me with addresses or something.

    I was told I had a part 2 of my gift coming but it never showed but I'm grateful for part 1 anyways. Then the person I sent to never let me know if he went to the show I bought him tickets for.

    That dead man winter show was good. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I didn't have a major headache that night but I still listen to them/him on a semi regular basis so thanks for that. Sorry for the
    more then delayed response to the show but I, like so many others, just don't really come around here that often anymore. These past couple days I've been sick have been the most time I've spent on here in awhile and this is still the first time I've been motivated to post.

    oh my god supre. This is what I am talking about. You're so rude and distrustful. I would like you if you weren't this way. I like the part of you that collects stuff and likes going to concerts in an extreme fan way, but this is just uncalled for.
    I miss talking to TomAz.

    We all do. I live in the same city as him (unless he relocated) and rumor has it that at 3:15am if you listen closely and its really really quiet you can hear him telling you to go fuck yourself.
