Thread Name: BS: Secret Santa Hints - 2003
Subject: RE: BS: Secret Santa Hints
1. what is your age range?

2. gender?

3. Do you have a favorite color?
Is black a color? I'm happy with dark, clear colors, like gem tones.

4. favorite authors/ type of book?
Sci-Fi and intelligent fantasy, historical fiction (but not historical romance), medieval history, Appalachian history (but not Civil War), and books with big genealogical charts or pretty period paintings of people in costume in the them.

5. what books have you really been wanting?
Don't even try fiction. I'll probably own it already. You could go for a musical reference book and I haven't bought any history in several months.

6. what type of music do you like?
Blues pretty consistantly, bluegrass when it isn't too whiny, rockabilly, some rock but nothing like today's pop junk.

7. what cds have you really been wanting?
The new Old Blind Dogs, the newest Sting, anything Johnny Cash, Emmylou's Stumble Into Grace

8. What movies have you been wanting?
I haven't really; I already bought them.

9. what is your t-shirt size?
A women's medium. If it's a guy's size or unisex, forget it -- it won't fit unless it's a tent.

10. do you collect anything? if so, what?
Erm... no. Well, crate labels, when I find good ones with animals or nice fruit or castles and stuff on them.

11. what are some of your other hobbies?
Reading, sewing complex Ren Faire costumes for others but I don't care to go much myself, genealogy, violin, mandolin, and spending way too much time working on the house.

12. do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry?
Silver, but I can't wear cheap earrings. If it's not really gold or silver, please don't they'll just make me swell up. Cheap necklaces and fine. I don't wear bracelets, but am amenable to rings and toe rings.

13. please include anything else you feel is important that would help your secret santa know what you would like
Food presents are good, but I'm allergic to onions and everything related to onions except garlic. REALLY allergic. I have a guitar in need of a pretty big repair and a cheap mando that could use a better setup. The cat likes small rolly bouncy lightweight toys but I hate lots of stuff with kitties on it. I have a small backyard pond that could use a water lily and a couple of snails. Candles and stuff that burns is good or lanterns and holders. My decor is southwest, but not ranchero -- Mission will fit in but it's more Spanish Colonial. I hate cheesy stuff with flowers and unnecessary glittery bits but really like quality metals and finishes. I like old photographs and am learning to appreciate old Scotch. I also like trying out new beers; amber to medium dark is my preferred range.
