    Should this be a thread split ?

    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?

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

    I am in. I am going to come up with something a bit better than last year... although sending wine (illegally) is somewhat exhilarating....

    I'm in, though I don't live in a locally iconic area I'm beginning to believe. We don't have something specific that screams Wilmington, NC unlike Charleston where I last lived which was much more like that. Wilmington has more of the OBX meets Charleston feel but nothing that they call their own. I wish we had a special dish or drink. I WILL find something iconic to send this year though.

    Okay folks - here's da rules:

    send me a private message listing the following:
    1. your real name
    2. your Cyburbian name (I cut and paste this so it makes it easier for me to have you repeat it)
    3. your mailing address
    4. your favorite color
    5. your top 3 favorite bands
    6. the last 3 books you read
    7. the last 3 alcohol-based drinks you have had
    8. your tshirt size
    9. your bumper sticker philosophy on life in general
    10. your thoughts on thread splitting
    11. how often you RJ'd in this past calendar year
    12. ever won post of the day or the captioning contests?
    13. private sector or public sector
    14. any information you are willing to share on your sado-masochistic tendencies
    15. list your dislikes and allergies here (you are so picky)
    16. Is there a Cyburbian you would rather not gift to? (what a crab @$$)

    deadline to file with me is 4 PM EST Monday November 26th so hurry the heck up

    ...then wait patiently and on Tuesday November 27th, you will be provided in your private message inbox right here in Cyburbia your victim with their answers listed above

    You have until Saturday January 5th, the day before Epiphany, to complete your task of getting someone something

    Please do not play if you are not going to play

    Please keep your gift between 10 bucks and 20 bucks

    Please check your inbox here in Cyburbia for updates and harassments from me - I know some of you on LinkedIn and Facebook so you can't hide...

    Let's make this fun, creative and yes, heartwarming...

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."
