    It's that time of year...Secret Santa!

    I am happy to coordinate it this year - need a purpose around these parts so here's the deal:

    PM me your:
    • Name (Real and Cyburbian)
    • Mailing Address
    • clothing sizes
    • music likes (and dislikes if they are extreme)
    • foodie favorites (and extreme dislikes and anything poisonous to you)
    • favorite torture method - both sadistic and masochistic
    • favorite color
    • current book you are reading
    • time zone
    • who you had last year (if you can remember that far back, Otis)

    I will release names to you as to who you have the week before Thanksgiving - if you get one them foreigners, mind your postal delays - it would be great to have it there by Christmas, but technically you have until January 6th, in respect to our Orthodox and Euro friends...

    $20 (American) range

    Mods - make this a sticky unless someone else wants to do this and then switch this off and put theirs as a sticky - whatever, man!

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I'm in...thank you lp for hosting the exchange. I will try and get out the gift early this year since it seems likely we will be getting an additional tax deduction this year

    I'll be in again this year - it's always fun, whether the gift be of the weird kind or the useful kind (I've gotten both over the years).

    What? But what if you get me? You'll have to start all over again because you know I require something fabulous!

    I hope I do get you because you'll look great in the scrunch-butt bikini bottom.

    Posting pictures of gifts are essential.
