    Secret Santa 2008 Edition

    There has been a lot of mention of the 2008 Secret Santa.

    So if you're interested in participating in the Cyburbian Secret Santa 2008 Special Edition, let your interest be known.

    For those who haven't participated in the past, follow this link to find out all about it.

    We're still trying to cajole Budgie to arrange this year's gift exchange but he's been relatively quiet on the whole thing. I'll start the thread but I don't think I have the time to arrange the whole affair.
    In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. -Martin Luther King Jr.

    I LOVE doing this every year and will note this needs to happen pretty darn fast so gifts can get to our friends in various countries.

    I wish I could step up but wedding planning already has me loosing the few marbles I had left

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    I would be glad to coordinate if Budgie is not going to. I will check with him to see.
    We probably need to get this going.
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    EXTRA! EXTRA!

    I will take the bait this year and coordinate since I don't have any exams to take and no grand plans that will inordinately interfere with organizing this time honored Cyburbian tradition!

    In keeping with the past the spending guide is $25. Remember it's a guide and nobody is going to ask you for the receipt.

    The Questionnaire:

    1. Gender
    2. Favorite Colors
    3. Favorite Music Genre
    4. Favorite Movie Genre
    5. Favorite Literature Genre
    6. Favorite Foods
    7. Favorite Beverages
    8. Favorite Sport
    9. Favorite Torture Method
    10. Shirt Size
    11. Special Message for your Secretion Santa

    PM me the answers to the questionnaire and your contact details to be forwarded to your Secret Santa.

    Please respond by Friday, November 21st!

    Ho...Ho...Ho...

    Yes, it was fantastic and a great gift.



    Because of my apathetic absent-mindedness is 2 of the past 3 years, I am out this year.

    Have fun everyone! and Merry EVERYTHING!
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
