Silver, and yes I have pierced ears. Please no more St. Bridget's crosses.

13. please include anything else you feel is important that would help your secret santa know what you would like
Um, I think I've been pretty specific, but I do play the harp and piano, so fun instrument-related items are good (but no more jewelry, please!) I'm a college student, so I will accept less-perishable food items. Like tea. I really, really love good tea (herbal or otherwise). Please no not-in-bags tea, though, unless you send a tea ball that doesn't leak tea into the cup. I've had no luck with tea balls. And I really like chocolate. Dark chocolate. Mmmm, chocolate.
