I'm 61yo, male.
I collect old postcards, especially the large letter "Greetings From" type.
I also collect fund-raiser cookbooks, the kind put out by schools, fire depts, churches, etc. Also regional cookbooks.
I'm also interested in books about wherever my S.S. lives (history, tourist info), and cheap souvenirs from wherever my S.S. lives.
I like traditional music of any kind, in case you're a musician with a CD.
Mudcatter crafts.
And, finally, ocarinas in interesting or unusual shapes.

Some of these are the same as previous years.

I really like getting things from my Secret Santa's geographical abode -- your music or that of your friends, local travel brochures, maps, rocks or shells, food -- even crumpled local newspapers used as packing material. (I have in my possession Divine's obituary in Spanish that was in a crumpled newspaper protecting something I had mail ordered. )

1. what is your age range?
61 to 61 (unless you're counting by decade -- then I'm six). I'm not old; I'm retro!

2. gender?
Goddess, fer-pete's-sake

3. Do you have a favorite color?
Blue, green, blue green, purple, bluish purple, magenta. I avoid orange except in things I eat (and the occasional accent flower.)

4. favorite authors/type of book?
Uh, I need books like cats need wings, but books on your vicinity's early gravestones or gravestone carvers (or stonework, from standing stones to cathedrals and walls) would be a welcome addition to the library.

5. what books have you really been wanting?
Alas, probably out of your price range, as well as mine.

6. what type of music do you like?
Everything from Louis Killen to Louis Prima. Prefer getting something by you, your friends or someone you think I should hear.

7. what cds have you really been wanting?
See number 6.

8. What movies have you been wanting?
Uh, Curmudgeon and I probably have the largest private collection in New Hampshire, USA, but we don't have a copy of Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" or "What the Bleep?" or Michael Moore's "Sicko" or "Capitalism: A Love Story" -- not that we've had any time to watch anything lately.

9. what is your t-shirt size?
H for homungus (I like 'em roomy). I'm goddess-shaped, but shrinking … so XL still snug, but 1 or 2X seems to work as well as 3X at least. I don't have (alas) a Mudcat T-shirt or sweatshirt.

10. do you collect anything? if so, what?
Maps, hippocampuses, rubber squid, rubberstamps and printing paraphernalia, skulls and interesting bones, rocks, shells, green men, mermaids...I think I collect collections.

11. what are some of your other hobbies?
Gravestone rubbing and research on gravestone carvers, learning how to cut slate, gardening, making bead jewelry, rubberstamp art, needlepoint...avoiding housework.

12. do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry?
Silver -- but I need jewelry, too, like cats need wings.

13. please include anything else you feel is important that would help your secret santa know what you would like.
I'm a sucker for fancy scented bath stuff, but I'm still stuck with showers and can only seldom indulge in my preferred R&R water therapy.

Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful.
I'm allergic to penicillin & a lot of antibiotics, blue mussels and carnations, not that I think this will really help my SS (aw, no penicillin chewies!). And I really don't care for the color orange unless it's edible or a flower up against a blue or purple backdrop.

Linn

Date: 02 Nov 10 - 07:34 AM

1. What is your age range?
I bought the first two Bob Dylan LPs when they came out
2. Gender?
I like blues guitar and tenor banjoes and steam trains and pints of bitter

3. Do you have a favorite color?
I dont really like mauve

4. Favorite authors/type of book?
Books with plenty of facts in, which may or may not be dressed up as fiction. I particularly like leaflets/books about obscure local bits of industrial or cultural history. I like Patrick O'Brian, but dont bother sending me one, I've got them all.

5. What books have you really been wanting?
Nothing specific, see previouis.

6. What type of music do you like?
Early jazz, trad folk(any culture), minimalist composers, barbershop, early obscure blues, early famous blues, Bach, Beach Boys.

7. What CDs have you really been wanting?
Anything hyper local. Or 1920's string bands.

8. What movies have you been wanting? (specify VHS if you don't have a DVD player)
None

9. What is your t-shirt size?
Average I would guess

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what?
Traditional tunes. I would be interested in collecting money, but haven't had much success.

11. What are some of your other hobbies?
For a few days each year, I make jams/curds etc. Other than that nothing, unles you count cooking as a hobby

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry?
Me and jewellery are total strangers.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like
I am not mad keen on songs written by schoolteachers about the old days on the canals(or indeed anywhere else). I just love anything that tells me about where or how my SS lives. I appreciate there could be a logical contradiction here, if my SS is a schoolteacher who writes songs about the old days on the canals in his/her locality.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful.
It would be foolish to send me any jars of walnuts or beetroot preserved in any way. It would also be unfair to send me any priceless Havana cigars, as I succesfully gave up smoking a few years ago. (I have by no means given up drinking, or eating small sweet delicacies).
Please ignore all this, and surprise me.

Naturally, you can give your Santa your wish list another way, but this is the traditional, long established, debated & codified Folk Music way of hinting!

As always, pressies either handcrafted or around 20 dollars/pounds etc. depending on name of local currency.

Best kinds of pressies at this late date would be flattish so cost less to post.

As Stilly put it - Well considered tokens of our mutual friendship go a long way, and they don't need to be expensive.

UScatters see Stilly's hint on flat post bags -
The Post Office has priority flat rate boxes that are for domestic and international use. The small flat rate box and the two medium sized boxes (one is flatter than the other) can be packed pretty tightly with goodies and they go fairly quickly. I've been shipping eBay sales in them for the last couple of years and it usually takes a week or so, rarely longer, to get there. You can get those boxes free at the post office, you don't have to order them in batches of 25 (and that order takes a couple of weeks to arrive anyway).

Ozcatters can get similar from OzPost, I assume UK & other posts would have something similar.

*******************************
