Subject: RE: Mudcat Secret Santa- Xmas 2013 - Join Us!
From: GUEST,Hollowfox
Date: 05 Dec 13 - 12:45 PM

I'm so sorry for the delay! I've been having adventures, like my bathroom pipes dying of old age, among other things. If worse comes to worse, the gummy bears will probably get my energy back up, and my long slightly twisty driveway will need some cinders this winter.

1. What is your age range? 64
2. Gender? Female

3. Do you have a favorite color? I tend toward blues and greens.

4. Favorite authors/type of book? folklore and folktales for nonfiction, fantasy for fiction. Used is just fine.

5. What books have you really been wanting? I'm a librarian, so I get to see pretty much all the new ones. Folktale collections delight my heart, as do used books. I'm currently on a jag for Turkish and Japanese tales, and anything by an author named Post Wheeler. He was in the United States diplomatic corps in the first part of the 20th century, and he apparently collected tales as a hobby. He had the knack to make anything readable. Oh yes, any books by Arthur Waley (Secret History of the Mongols, Monkey, and others). He translated many fine obscure oriental classics.

6. What type of music do you like? What have you got by local folks? Usually I go for traditional Anglo-American and ballads, but novelty songs, music hall, storytelling, etc. are appreciated. 7. What CDs have you really been wanting? See above. If my Secret Santa is Canadian, I'd love to have anything by Penny Lang.

8. What movies have you been wanting? (specify VHS if you don't have a DVD player) I can do either VC or DVD, but of course any DVDs must be Area 1 (I think that's what they call it; North America viewing area) Well, you asked. I'm looking for a Japanese animation classic called Arcadia of My Youth.If you know of any tapes of storytellers or folk performers of any sort, I probably don't have it and would love it.

9. What is your t-shirt size? XL

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? I don't collect things so much as accumulate them. Currently, small things (figurines, inexpensive prints). Animals, fantastical or real, folk and storytelling themes. Nothing cutsey, please, unless it's deliberately funny. For example, I have a couple of prints of dragons in feline activities - sleeping in the laundry, standing by someone's ankles when they open a can of food, etc. But the art is good and the critters don't look goofy.

11. What are some of your other hobbies? embroidery and counted cross stitch

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? silver mostly, but I wear both.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like. Edibles (sweet or savory) and potables are a wonderful default. Something for the spice cabinet is always good, but I don't really go for the overly hot stuff; I don't enjoy biting something that bites me back too hard. I've always loved any Christmas ornaments that have come in my Mudcat present. Used, recycled, found, etc. is as good or better than new.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful. I'm an omnivore. Since I'm late in the game this year, the pressie hasn't got a deadline.

Well, this is really Art, but here are herself's hints, copied from last time, with a little editing:

1. what is your age range? I'm 64. A young 64. I think. {Personally, I have trouble believing that. 35, maybe.}

2. gender? female

3. Do you have a favorite color?several. Blues, rusts and greens, darker rather than lighter. {Boring colors}

4. favorite authors/ type of book? Mostly I go to the library a lot and have finally learned to use my e-reader, but see below. I like mysteries and fantasies. {A lot of mysteries in which the protagonist is a knitter seem to flow through here.}

5. what books have you really been wanting? A local cookbook or songbook or any knitting or beading pamphlet or mag would be enjoyed.

6. what type of music do you like? Most folk, but especially patter songs, humor, stories with a twist.

7. what cds have you really been wanting? None, thank you (unless you have a terrific inspiration or record music yourself). The other mudcatter in this house does a great job of choosing and playing the music here. {Yes, admittedly very true}

8. What movies have you been wanting? Also none, thank you. We really aren't movie or TV watchers.

9. what is your t-shirt size? Medium

10. do you collect anything? if so, what? Armadillos!?! Yarn for knitting (Much preferred to armadillos) or a length of cloth for sewing or beads for beading. You should see this collection! I have my own junk room! (Most people have a drawer.)

11. what are some of your other hobbies? Well, I guess I told that one above, huh? Also bike riding and folk and contra dancing.

12. do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? Silver, hands down. Generally I wear pierced earrings, rarely any other jewelry. {Really hard to buy presents around here!}

13. please include anything else you feel is important that would help your secret santa know what you would like. Something of your craft or from your locale would be delightful.

Ye Olde Hints:

1. What is your age range?   Herself swats me if I look too closely, but 20-something and beyond. Oh - you meant my own? 60-ish, pushing 70-ish, but not too hard.

2. Gender? Male

3. Do you have a favorite color? Dark green

4. Favorite authors/type of book? I mostly read SF and alternative history, but I generally buy or read them as soon as they come out.

5. What books have you really been wanting? See #4 - if I want it, I have it...and I'm running out of room for any more.

6. What type of music do you like? Uh...folk? Oh yeah - what is folk? Never mind...Celtic. Wait - what is Celtic? Stuff with fiddles, guitars and maybe (dread) a banjo or bodhran.   People singing in languages I don't know. Rhythm - rhythm is good. Local to you is best.

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? I'm pretty sure that I don't have every CD ever produced by a Mudcatter.

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

9. What is your t-shirt size? XL

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? Not really.

11. What are some of your other hobbies? Painting miniature toy soldiers.

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? I only wear silver, but I have all I need.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like. I would most like things from you or where you live.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful. I don't care for white "chocolate" much.

3. Do you have a favorite color? Purple, dark blue, maroon

4. Favorite authors/type of book? I like faction books ie fiction books based on true facts

9. What is your t-shirt size? Don't really wear them

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? Odd musical wind and reed based instruments. Someone gave me a nose flute a few Santas back and sadly it is now broken. I used to do a heart rendering rendition of Danny Boy on it dueting with a swanee whistle player - it brought tears to the eyes!

Not all are sent out yet. I'm working down my parchment-like scroll of names and sending PMs as I have a moment during the day.

As the game begins, there will be stragglers. I noticed a number of names from past years that aren't here this time. If you discover this thread and missed this November first deadline you can still contact me and we'll see what we can do. If you transmit that you missed and want to join in this thread then it may be easy for your Santa or Santee to guess who you are, because the matchups will be among the stragglers. Just send me a PM directly instead.

Okay - I'll start sending these out tomorrow. I'm waiting on a couple of Mudcat detective reports but we're ready to launch the main part of the adventure now.

I'm going to sleep on this list (not literally - it'll be on my kitchen table) and double check that I didn't miss anyone or double up on a name.

There are no guarantees that you will receive a Santee that you've never had before. We have new players and that will be taken into account, but if you get someone you've had before, you'll just have to be all that much more sneaky to send something that will surprise them, if you're trying to keep your ID secret. Most people try to hide their identity, but it isn't always possible, especially with computerized mailing labels. I'll compare last year's list and the year before that, and I'll at least make sure that people in the same household aren't sending to each other. :)

Dear Secret Santa,

I am an adult female human being. Sea and plant colors delight - periwinkle blue, turquoise, amber, moss agate, flaming poppies,leaf green, seal grey, evening and morning sky....I like things from your part of the world- a shell, a carving, a water-smoothed stone, a bit of music. Special tiles and colorful/colourful bits of pottery will become a mosaic in our new home.

For hobbies, we enjoy music, artwork, weaving, basketry, woodcraft, knitting, lacemaking, quilting, leatherwork, gardening, woodcarving, pottery, writing about our lives here, beadwork, and spinning (always looking for new fibers to spin.) Our bantam chickens are dear to our hearts and our apple, peach, plum, and pear orchards are young but daily growing. Our house is under construction. We are wild bird rehabilitation volunteers. Our land is a wildlife sanctuary.

I make songs and poetry, and sing solo and in a folk chorus here in Maine, and am always looking for interesting music to try. Scots Gaelic, Passamaquoddy, Shoshone, and Italian languages are of great interest, as are farming books and field guides. We like dark chocolate, shortbread, good tea leaves, laughter, small hand tools, interesting things someone made. A realeo, truleo letter is a wondrous thing. Please send only as much as pleases you. I'll share with my husband, Truelove.

Thank you, Santa.

3. Do you have a favorite color? red, dark green, blues, earth tones. No pastels, pinks, or purples, thank you.

4. Favorite authors/type of book? Don't need any more books. Unless my Santa is Australian. Then field guides would be lovely. Or anything to do with local history or nature.

5. What books have you really been wanting? See above

6. What type of music do you like? Pretty much everything except opera and jazz

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? Local music or something by my Santa.

8. What movies have you been wanting? (We are assuming you all have DVD players.) I'm good on the movies, thanks.

9. What is your t-shirt size? Medium

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? Horseshoe crabs, frogs, field guides and other natural history books, shiny rocks.

11. What are some of your other hobbies? Photography, cross-stitching, bird watching, natural history, hiking, video games

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? I don't wear much jewelry, but on the rare occasions when I do, silver. I do not have pierced ears.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like. I like chocolate. I am fascinated by the world around me - nature, different cultures, geography, etc.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful. I live in a 400 square foot cottage, so less is more when it comes to things that take up space. I don't wear scarves. I am allergic to most commercial lotions and soaps (dyes and perfumes).

I'm back in and I LOVE presents!

Apologies that this is mostly copied & pasted, no rest for the wicked *sigh*

Female, just over 50, love Purple, Black, Greens & Blues - definitely not red!

Books: Have read all Terry Pratchett's and have a good collection of his Hard-back First Editions (apart from Discworld 1st & 2nd books - but they're nearly into 4 figures now so please don't worry about searching for them!!). Any science fantasy, dragons & wizzzzards, fiction, thrillers (have read almost all of Clive Cussler and Wilbur Smith, Alexander Kent, Barbara Erskine, Carlos Castenada to name a few), crime etc. Second-hand is preferred, dogeared and with broken spines are perfectly acceptable, shows they're recommended!

Musical taste: Traditional Folk, a capella singing, contempory folk, female voice - anything that's good, stuff you've done, anything of Catters, ones with good songs to try!!

Not into movies or DVD's - rarely get time in front of the TV.

Size: still Large - I like chocolate a lot (no fruit or nuts) and I'm still quite good at ice-cream cocktails!

Am accumulating an interesting collection of crafty earrings, pierced & dangly!!! Silver-tone seems to go best with my favourite colours. Seem to have accumulated stones from various places & beaches... Love Cats, Birds, Chocolate (too much), gardening, plants & trees, secret gardens, interesting places, earth powers, intuition & friendship.

Allergies yes, mainly alkaline-forming foods (have never eaten fruit so that's a definite negative). Luckily there aren't many other negatives in my life apart from the food!

Happy to read any packing material too, as long as it isn't technical stuff that is!

Hmm - not much has changed, again!!
Still gotta Basic Web-page!

We're getting close to time to compile a couple of lists, so round up any more players you can think of - this really is a pleasure to participate it.

If there are any people who would like to be free agents, I have in mind a couple of projects I'd like to run past you. Drop me a PM. This is somewhat related, but not part of Secret Santa.

SRS

Tell your friends, if you have any, to join us. In fact, if they do not I will personally send Chongo Chimp to insure that they pay for their foolishness.
