Thread Name: BS: Secret Santa Hints - 2003
Subject: RE: BS: Secret Santa Hints
1. what is your age range?
   
   Chronological age is irrelevant, but since you asked, I'll be 40 in January. Don't let that be too strong and influence on you, however, I am amused by things geared for ages 10 and up.... In other words, I still like getting toys as presents!

2. gender?

   Female.

3. Do you have a favorite color?
   
   I like them all. But if you want to get me something to wear, pastels make me look sickly. I prefer jewel- and earth-tones.

4. favorite authors/ type of book?
   
   I love fantasy, as long as it's not "Sword and Sorcery" (if you don't know what that means, those are generally the ones with covers graced by women with heaving bosoms, and some sort of mythical beast in the background). I also like folklore and folktales, humor, children's and young adult novels, and mysteries.

5. what books have you really been wanting?
   
   I have been told by several friends that I must read Gaimon's Sandman series of graphic novels... But if you really like a book (any book), and want to pass it along, I will most likely enjoy it too...

6. what type of music do you like?
   
   Nearly everything in moderation, except atonal modern classical and modern jazz, or hard, punk stuff...

7. what cds have you really been wanting?

   Surprise me!

8. What movies have you been wanting?

   Can't use movies, as my vcr's dead...

9. what is your t-shirt size?

   Large to extra large

10. do you collect anything? if so, what?

    Stories, cheesy jokes, ideas... things I can carry around in my head...

11. what are some of your other hobbies?
   
    I dabble in decorating clothes, drawing, and basically live on the 'Net... I used to ride horses fairly regularly, but I haven't done that in years.

12. do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry?

    Don't wear jewelry, as a rule (I'll occasionally wear a pin on a shirt). I could go with either.

13. please include anything else you feel is important that would help your secret santa know what you would like.
   
    I am easily amused -- really! But anything "cutesy" can get on my nerves Very quickly.
