Subject: RE: BS: 2010 Secret Santa pressie wishlist/hints
1. What is your age range?
Trying to hit the brakes before 60 hits me, very soon

2. Gender?
Female, I'm told.

3. Do you have a favorite color?

4. Favorite authors/type of book?
I'm a T. Pratchett person too, but don't bother....
Local booklets from wherever you are, particularly natural history type things, ....or maps/posters

5. What books have you really been wanting?
Ones I can't afford, so don't bother. Ones with local tunes in would be interesting, though, if they're in the fiddle type range.

6. What type of music do you like?
Traditional tunes - I'm not a singing person particularly. Dance tunes, old tunes....

7. What CDs have you really been wanting?
The one I have yet to make, with my best musical friend. Otherwise, surprise me.

8. What movies have you been wanting? (specify VHS if you don't have a DVD player)
I don't have time to watch movies. Even 5 minute U tube clips are a struggle.

9. What is your t-shirt size?

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what?
Large dogs (impractical), plants (or pictures of them), shells and pebbles if you're near a seashore / river with interesting geology.

11. What are some of your other hobbies?
Large dogs, gardening, growing veggies, a bit of photography

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry?
Gold, but only the real stuff, the cheapie sort brings me up in bumps.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like
Love posters, scenic postcards, guidebooks, nature trails, local wildlife stuff.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful.
Don't drink alcohol, shouldn't eat chocolate but prefer dark if offered. Love honey and maple syrup: can't eat hard toffee type sweeties. Love macadamia nuts (cost a packet where I am)
Must try not to over-indulge anyway.

It's the fun of getting a personalized parcel that matters to me, not the commercial value of the contents.
