Subject: RE: BS: Secret Santa Hints - 2003
oops, this has been sitting in drafts for a few days.

1. what is your age range?
51& a half

2. gender?

3. Do you have a favorite color?
several - red, black, purple

4. favorite authors/ type of book?
I read a lot (I don't have a TV) - it's a wide selection as I love books - selected childrens fantasy, archaeology, social history, crafts, biography,

5. what books have you really been wanting?
I don't buy a lot of books (my bookcases are very full)

6. what type of music do you like?
traditional folk, shanties, singer/songwriters like my friend John Warner (mentioned on several threads)& similar folk who write with a solid traditional basis, liek the Tolpuddle cycle. I'm not into songs that describe the writer's sad life & loves, & recovery from life's wounds. I don't like wailing western stuff, nor do I like loud screaming modern pop stuff

7. what cds have you really been wanting?
Laura Campbell (ex-Ian campbell Group), cos my CD shop couldn't get it!! Or yours/your friends or other great independent stuff I can't find in my local shop.

8. What movies have you been wanting?
never touch the stuff! I don't have a TV & never go to the movies

9. what is your t-shirt size?
I'm not a t-shirt wearer (except in winter when I wear black long-sleeved tees).

10. do you collect anything? if so, what?
yes! lots of things - Teddies & bears, pictures of bears (teddies &
polar etc); occasional pieces of interesting vintage china; small
penguins; old interesting crafty stuff & impliments; small interesting
things - like old toys, old ornaments - from my local charity shop, or the el-cheapo shops.

11. what are some of your other hobbies?
running a folk club; jigsaw puzzles of bears, or historical paintings, under 750 pieces (my table is too small for larger ones); crosswords; crafty stuff - a bit of knitting, embroidery, mohair bear making; photographing folk concerts & festivals; buying (& playing) more CDs than one human can use.

12. do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry?
I have far too much costume jewellery (& 3 small, real 18ct gold rings!) but I can always fit in another piece of costume jewellery if it has a bear on it.

13. please include anything else you feel is important
that would help your secret santa know what you would like.
I don't eat sugary stuff so choccies & such are out. Info about your
area is great (well, last year's Secret Santa, Giac, provided some great stuff about her area). Crafty things you have made.
