Gender: Of the feminine persuasion

Favourite colour: purple (but no people eaters please)

Books:insatiable appetite for reading material but have a houseful - something local to Santa's neck of the woods

Music: very eclectic taste, love to hear new stuff, especially if Secret Santa had a hand in it...

Is that enough hints???

Looking forward to whatever my S.Santa wants to send...

Thank you so much, Liz! Glad to hear that your computer seems to be behaving at last, and I hope that your physical health is doing the same! I certainly can't say I was among your "patient" Secret Santas, but I was concerned! Sorry if I seemed impertinent.

Okay, then -- Santee name received, and appropriate teasings in the planning stages. Oh, what fun it is... !!

Thanks again,
Sharon

Right, thank you all for being so patient, the first couple of times I sent the second batch, they got lost in the ether and I know not where they went... sorry.

However, it looks like this third time is the charm. If anyone sent me a PM asking for a Santa but didn't get one, please let me know asap.


So now it's up to you to post your hints, wind up your previous Santa/Santees, tease your new victims.. sorry, recipients and have fun. Play nicely children or Santa will send you coal and an old sock!


Once again, so sorry for the time it's taken to get these out to you, computer problems and a few very poorly days took their toll...

Thank you.

I've also been worried about Liz's health & I've been assuming her family are too busy looking after her to post.

The second batch must have been a lot bigger than the first as 42 catters posted to the initial thread - tho 10 of you haven't managed to put your hints up yet!

I don't see grumbles. Only questions. Also I see kindly enquiries about Liz. Of course that's as it should be and mine are there too. The reasons for the way people put their questions are as varied as their personalities and their situations. (New England Winters, Australian Bushfire-Summers.) Because we are united in a love of folksong and folklore -- I guess the tradition of exchanging gifts at Christmas has a special appeal for us. I shouldn't presume to speak for anyone but myself. I try not to do that -- but that's my read for what it's worth.
I am nice. I really am. And I'm patient.
Cheers, Joy

People, please remember that Liz volunteers to do this and that it's supposed to be fun. It should remain fun regardless of when it happens. Personally, I like the idea of Secret Santa brightening my day in late February/early March. If you've ever lived through a New England winter, you'll know what I'm talking about.

Please be patient with Liz and try to keep any negative grumbling off the thread. It doesn't really help the situation and may cause hurt feelings.

From: SharonA

With all respect, and at the risk of being criticized as tactless or unsympathetic, I must ask: Could someone please explain exactly what the hold-up is?

Since Liz sent out her "second batch" of notices via Mudcat PM's, they must be in the "Sent Messages" section of her Mudcat Personal Page. Therefore, if the problem is with her own computer, all she would have to do is:
(a) go to a library or to the home of a friend who has a computer, log in to Mudcat from there, and re-send the PM's; or
(b) if she is too sick to go out, phone a friend with a computer and ask the friend to write to Joe Offer or someone else at Mudcat to see what the-powers-that-be can do to get the PM's delivered; or
(c) give her password to the friend, so that the friend could re-send the PM's for her. Even if the friend were another Mudcatter, he/she could log in to Liz's account using Liz's screen name and password. The password could always be changed later on if Liz were concerned about privacy.

However, if the problem is with Liz's Mudcat account and if the Mudcat tech-elves can't solve it, then isn't it time to delegate the PM-ing task to someone whose account is in working order, so that everyone who has signed up to play the Secret Santa game (and to write funny GUEST messages with clues to their identities) will be able to play together???

I'm receiving PM's from people venting their frustration and asking me if there's anything we can do about this situation. I'm not sure how I came to be the champion of the downtrodden *grin* but, for their sakes and mine, I am speaking up to ask what it is that's causing this logjam (and to suggest several ways to free it). Thanks in advance for any information.

Best,
Sharon (sorely in need of holiday cheer)

Very good point, Severn. I wish that Liz could/would have sent all her PM's out at one time. The "batch" system obviously has its flaws.

Liz, my offer to be SASSY (Santa's American Substitute-Secretary for this Year) is still open, if you need me to help!

First chance I've had to read this thread since I'd PMed my address, etc. to Liz. Had to check to make sure I'd PMed her -- was afraid somehow I'd missed either that or receiving my Santee.

I pretty much have together what I'm sending my Secret Santee -- so it's just a matter of finding out who so I can tweak bits of it or something. And I, too, am usually one of the ones who don't get the prezzie there by the day itself. Sigh.

Liz, feel better -- this is the most important thing. I certainly have no objections to stretching the season out a bit.
