Subject: RE: BS: 2010 Secret Santa pressie wishlist/hints
1. What is your age range?

Old, really old. Somewhere between 66 and 68, but closer to 68.

2. Gender?

XY Chromosones.

3. Do you have a favorite color?

Blue, green, red, puce, beige, off-white, emery, emu -- not really.

4. Favorite authors/type of book?

I'd LOVE Bill Shakespeare's latest novel! Otherwise, well, history or pretty much anything with print on it.

5. What books have you really been wanting?

An autographed First Folio of Bill's plays.

6. What type of music do you like?

Folk, baroque....

7. What CDs have you really been wanting?

Well, I pretty much buy what I want. If, however, there was some cowboy songs (NOT Country & Western!!!) or Aussie songs or Irish songs...you know, FOLK songs.

8. What movies have you been wanting? (specify VHS if you don't have a DVD player)

I'd really like all of the Harry Potter movies. Really.

9. What is your t-shirt size?

Men's XXL (US)

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what?

I like to collect USD 20.00 bills. The more the better.

11. What are some of your other hobbies?

Cowboy action shooting, reading, fencing (but not lately because of #$%@!!! knee and elbow surgeries), outdoors, traveling, that sort of stuff.

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry?

Rarely wear a tie anymore, much less jewelry. There is one piece, called "The Star of India" I believe, that would be much appreciated.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like

The best way is to read "The Mother of All BS Threads" from the beginning. (I know of only one person who has ever done so.)

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful.

I'm allergic to most Country and Western Music, Rap and Hip-Hop Music, Reggae, and Head-Banging Rock Music. Believe it or not, I really am hard of hearing (got me hearing aids, even).
