Subject: RE: BS: 2010 Secret Santa pressie wishlist/hints
1. What is your age range? 50+ (I'm saying no more...)

2. Gender? F (hope that's obvious, at least)

3. Do you have a favorite color? Purple, and rich jewel colours.

4. Favorite authors/type of book? Fantasy - love Neil Gaiman, Charles de Lint, Ursula K Le Guin, G R R Martin, Terry Pratchett, Guy Gavriel Kay. Or good historical fiction (but that means no Alison Weir or Philippa Gregory, please!)

5. What books have you really been wanting? Good folktale collections from different parts of the world.

6. What type of music do you like? Easiest to say that I'm not a fan of modern jazz.

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? Nothing I can put in a list ...I won't know until I hear them!

8. What movies have you been wanting? (specify VHS if you don't have a DVD player) Nothing particular - we tend to pick up movies when they turn up with reduced stickers.

9. What is your t-shirt size? Changing downwards, I'm happy to say, but let's go for XL for now.

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? Nothing. That's apart from CDs, books and guitars ...

11. What are some of your other hobbies? Theatre, history, Shakespeare.

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? Real gold, real silver - sorry! Skin allergies!

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like - I love earrings (not too heavy and with real gold posts or studs or hoops). I also love finding out more about my Santa and his/her area. Local crafts would probably be great, especially if Santa is not from round here (because we have a lot of the local stuff already).

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful.   Only the skin thing to worry about!
