I have just received notification from a usually reliable source that I have been placed in charge of investigating a certain lady of a northern persuasion, to wit one MeganL, to ascertain whether she qualifies for Christmas presents of the highest calibre - or a bag of coal

The thorough investigation commences forthwith. No stone will be left unturned.

If you haven't behaved, MeganL, be afraid, be very afraid !!

From: GUEST,Tabster's Secret Santa
Date: 02 Oct 07 - 09:32 AM

I'm just a poor old woman, once rather famous in certain circles but now reduced to living on a small Naval pension left me by my late husband and whatever I can glean from the fields that surround my humble cottage.

So Tabster won't be getting much I'm afraid. But I'll dig into my meager savings and see what can be done. Perhaps a few small potatoes, or the handful of dried beans I was saving for my New Year's dinner.

How I wish that in my youth I had saved instead of spent! And now I, once the consort of the Crowned Heads of Europe, am reduced to wondering what to use to wrap Christmas gifts. I will be forced to use old newspaper, and I so hope that I do not mistakely send the remains of last week's eel.

Yours,
TSS

Well, my dear, I have begun Santa's research for him, and I must say that you do not make it especially easy!

You seem to have quite a history with the Secret Santa programme: late every year to sign up (perhaps you need a calendar?), and no hints except that you like books, CDs and Violet Crumble!

Santa is thinking that you might after all want some of that violet liqueur, or perhaps some Stilton perfume. Post some hints for him, please!

Just so you know, on his Christmas visit, Santa is fond of a good veined cheese and a small glass of something warming. He does grow weary of chocolate biscuits.

Must run -- violet liqueur not locally available. Off to parts south. (From here, all parts are of course south.)

Yours,
Silenus Charm
Research Elf

Well now. Hello.
Nice to meet you and I am honored at the thought that I shall be selecting your Gift(s) this Year.
I have, of course, read your list, checked it twice but it gives me no idea if you have been naughty or nice so being a 'glass half full' type of Mudcatter I will assume you have been nice.

I will of course be carrying out my own investigation into your likes and dislikes so that I can be sure that your Gift brings you Yuletide Joy!
This is most likely going to be the only sane (ish) post to you on this thread. Forewarned is forearmed ~ Praemonitus praemunitus

With that said,
*"When chill November's surly blast make fields and forest bare."*
    You will place a present 'neath your tree where before there was none there!


The first of many posts from me, CET!
Until the next one then.

My dearest Santa,

I am ever so happy to hear from you, but it concerns me that you seem a touch forgetful. Is that hole in the ozone above your house letting in too many cosmic rays? If any of your gift wrap this year is foil, you might want to use some to line your pointy hat.

Secret Santa usually means gift at Christmas, but if in your case it means egg at Easter I shall try to be duly appreciative. By the way, Easter eggs are often wrapped in foil too, so you might try stuffing your hat full of chocolate Easter eggs as an alternative to the Christmas wrap. The eggs also come in handy if you are up late, as I know you tend to be this time of year, and need a snack. In your climate, I wouldn't be too concerned about them melting. No, wait, the polar icecap is melting too, innit? In that case, better not.

Talk to you soon, Santa! I have been at least 51 percent good.

Claire

Esteemed BOSS Santa,

I wouldn't be cross with you, Santa dear, far be it from that. I don't believe in getting cross, it's such a waste of time. Getting even is much more satisfactory, I find :-)

Awww.. shucks, I should have known those photos would come back to haunt me, but I assure you, Santa, that if you've seen picture(s) of me clinging to a glass containing a brown liquid, then that liquid will in all likelihood have been coke (possibly with a wee drop of Bacardi in it), definitely not Guiness.

As for giving the present to Milloup, I have no objection to that, dearest Santa. I do love my wee furry bundle, and I want him to always have the best. Only, I think I should warn you a bit. You see, his preference is "The smellier, the better".. So, if you were to be thinking of getting him something to take orally, dried fish and dried intestines of various descriptions seem to go down the best.. Squeaky toys are usually murdered on sight around here (dunno if I'd ever dare invite Ms Squeak to visit our domicile here, should she ever make it back this way..).

I remain,

Respectfully yours,

Bente

'bout JennyO's likings ....PLEASE!
I've lots of dust and old dog hairs
One old and worn out shoe
A wooden leg with woodworm in
and a pot of half set glue
Some almost ripe tomatoes
A piece of wire that's bent
But if you were wanting something else
Please tell, before these are sent!!!!!!!!!!

Whoa... donkeys?!

I like donkey's OK. I LOVE llamas. Hmmmm....

One thing I love (that doesn't often come up in music conversations ; ) is hand puppets. I like the kind that look just like animals. While not actually a collection, I have quite a few and you never know when they're going to come in handy.

What else....

I like good whiskey, which is sometimes found around donkeys ; ) if they have a sense of humor, which all donkeys don't. I like food. A lot. I'm actually a chef, a sometime gardener/grower, and I'm very interested in cooking good fresh simple food from scratch.

Does that help?

Dani

I have a little Santee
He do come from Idaho,
He's over in d' Rockies
Where the praties they do grow.

He says he wants that Bible but,
His list he must revise;
I'll serve him Gutenburger,
Well-done with extra fries.

He's rugged and he's sporty
With an XY Chromosone
He plays the trumpet, but for this rhyme
I'd prefer it, t'were trombone.

My Idahoan Santee
Is the Gem of the Gem State
But if he seeks his Santa's name
He'll have to bleedin' wait.

For now I go a-shoppin'
With Euro, buck or quid
To get his little present
And mail it off to ID

And Ho, and Ho and Ho again
My Spud and my Santee.
Thus Esto Perpetua,
The Mudcat Revelry!

From: Dave'sWife
Date: 04 Oct 07 - 02:50 PM

Dear Silenus Charm, Research Elf:

Violet Crumbles do not involve Violets as ingredients. They are a honeycomb type nougat covered with chocolate. However, $17,000 worth of wonderful dental work over the past 3 years leads me to suggest nothing along the lines of hard to chew items! I have a condition which causes brittle teeth so I've had problems with chiped enamel. As a result, I've had a great many crowns and 3 bridges. The bridges were to replace teeth broken during an assault over a decade ago. I now have marvelous looking teeth but I stay away from Nougat! As for liquor - neither me or my husband drink much these days. We have quite a lot of wine gathering dust and an equal amount of spirits. I would not want Santa to consider any alcoholic beverages since they are expenisve to ship and we really don't need any. Please let Santa know.

About me:

I am an enthusiastic cook and gardener. I love old cookbooks, handed-down recipes,unusually shaped biscuit cutters (cookie cutters), interesting cake tins (pans), salad and/or pudding molds, Shortbread molds or stamps, and other such items. One thing I do not have but would love to have is a Pie Bird.

To give you an idea of what I am like, My Mum asked me what one item of hers I wanted the most after she died and I told her I wanted her Potato masher. Here in the USA, Potato Ricers are all the rage these days but when I was growing up, my Mum used a mashing device that was shaped like a sign wave. I managed to have an antique-dealing friend get me one that was similar but it's not exactly the same. The mashers around now are all squared patterns and make for lousy mashed praties.

I live in southern California but I am originally from the Irish Bronx, a section of New York City that historically has been the home of recent Irish emigrants. My family came to the USA from 1916 to the 1920's. That first date should give a clue as to why. My mother's family is also from ireland but by way of Canada. They arrived a generation earlier and settled in an iron mining town of far upstate New York. Her side of the family became union activists, something I inherited. Here in Los Angeles, I once ran for president of my Craft Local and lost by just 6 votes!

I grew up in a very musical family on both sides but I no longer play an instrument due to a painful joint condition (the same condition that makes my teeth brittle). I do still sing, however. My sister and I had a little folk duo as children and teens. We've both recorded but only she has actually had music available commerically. Both of us played guitar during the Folk Mass era of The Catholic Church here in the USA. It's an era I recall fondly despite the simplicity of some of the music. My sister eventually left popular music to cooncentrate solely on the Music Ministry and now she and her husband publish and distribute original litergical music. I was terribly fond of the Weston Priory music written by the former Brother Gregory Norbett. I don't have any of it on CD and would love to have some of my old favorites such as: Hosea, Wherever You Go and others from that time period. While the latter Weston priory Music is nice, it doesn't carry the same nostalgia for me as the Norbett songs.

I was the harmony singer in our family and as a result, I grew up to be terribly fond of nicely matched duos such as The Louvin brothers, The Everly Brothers and the work Gram parsons did with Emmylou Harris. My voice was once very similar to hers, so I boought every album she ever made up to a point. I have most of them now as well except for a few that have never made it onto CD. I would die of happiness if I could get the Albums White Shoes and 13 on CD.

Speaking of albums transferred to CD - there is one Irish ROvers album from when I was a child called Tales To Warm Your Mind that has several songs that have never been available on CD - songs such as Brambleshire Wood and a different version of The Stolen Child than you hear elsewhere. If anyone had this and could put it on CD - I would be so in their debt.

I have a pretty huge CD collection, but there are allows more albums that you love and want, right? I would love a copy of the Everly Brother's Album Songs That Our Daddy Taught Us with songs such as Put My Little Shoes Away and The Lightening Express (Please Mister Conductor). I've always been a sucker for all those heart-wrenching type songs. In fact, my mother used to sing me The Prisoner's Song (If I had the wings of an angel) as a Lullabye! I only have one version of it on CD - the Sonny James one from 1976.

Perhaps all this has given you a picture ofwhat I like. I'll ad more later.

To Do List

1. Interview the person known as One Who Knows about their claim that Ms MeganL is not a lady at all. Evaluate outcome.

2. Quiz MeganL herself about certain statements made over the past years, most notably this one made in January of this year:
(hhm wonders - - - nah its to early to start being nice fur next year yet :p)
Is the girl not being nice all the time??

3. Check whether the girl has mental problems of some sort and needs medication. She does seem to be rather unstable (*totally evil laugh etc) and prone to pick fights with all and sundry (most notably Secsy LtS and the Scot - what's his name?)

4. Find a reliable coal supplier who can supply in bulk.

5. Check Prancer for footrot and Blitzen for the trots.

(sigh!!) A Santa's work is never done..

Highly esteemed Da BOSS,

Sorry, if I have offended by being quiet, I was told by my mother that good girls reply when spoken to and otherwise keep silent, so that's what I've been doing - being a good girl, me ;-) I don't hunt wabbits, it's one of the reasons I keep a dog. So I don't have to do any hunting myself, see?

I haven't done Penzance yet, but it's on my list. But I thought Guinness was from Ireland, though? Smoke and swear? Hmmm.. yes, I think I have to plead guilty on those two counts.

Milloup will be happy with any bone, wrapped or unwrapped. I haven't come across any wrapping as yet that he wasn't capable of defeating all on his own. However, I do think our mailman would prefer the bone to be wrapped.. :o))

Respectfully yours,

Bente

We're slow, but we're steady.

Chickens: astro has a couple of ceramic chickens which he brought when he joined our household. Since then, son Dan and I have threatened him with all sorts of lovely chicken knick-knacks, but for some reason, he has resisted. Our favorites were some feathered ones that crowed when you clapped. There were several shelves-full and it was quite fun. (Too bad astro wasn't with us at the time, though he does quake at the mention...)

Puce: what more needs to be said?

Stuffed cats: Son Dan collected these at one point; he's on to seals now, though. I'm not sure how they crept into our profile, except perhaps in relation to discussing allergies...

'I will try tae be good but i need a dispensation fur the McMudgather..'

I have been reading your posts on the thread about the upcoming Mudgather, and I realize that this is the first time you'll be going to a gather of this kind. Well, far be it from me to deny a girl her pleasures, so you have all the dispensation you want for this particular gather. In return I expect you to be exceedingly well behaved for the rest of the time until Christmas. Deal?

I must admit, though, that it worries me a bit when you say you're thinking about bringing your Granny along to the Mudgather. You stated in your hints that you're heading towards 50 on a fast horse, so I estimate that your Granny must be heading towards 90 on an even faster horse, or am I mistaken? I'm not sure I would recommend exposing a lady of such advanced years - even one armed with a whip and a feather boa - to the likes of MacKenzie and Secsy Liz. I do think you should reconsider, my Dear.

Megan, Dear, you say you collect thimbles. Does this mean that you like sewing? What are your other hobbies apart from writing with a real pen, do you like cooking? baking? knitting? painting? I'm sure I can get you some goose feathers for making pens, the elves have a large goose pen out the back, so that shouldn't pose any problems at all (although the feathers might require a little bit of cleaning before use..) Do you have any pets? (No, Dear, husbands don't count as pets. You'd need to add an s in there somewhere to get a description of husbands..)

Give me a few more hints, Dear?

Dear Silenus Charm, Research Elf:

I did leacve some brief hints over the hint thread but since you saw my post here, I figured I'd best continue here.

First - please tell Santa that I am terribly allergic to Bleu Cheese of any kind. I have no other serious allergies but I discovered whilst working for a caterer in Graduate school that several forms of Bleu cheese caused me to break out in huge red welts. The stickier and more virulent the Bleu, the worse it gets. You mentioned Stilton so I figured I'd better speak up. Stilton isn't so bad as Bleu's go. I can handle it with gloves but I can't even be in the same room as Gorgonzola or Roquefort. 'Nuff said.

Speaking of food - If Santa happens to be in an area where he can locate dried Bilberries - we don't have Bilberries here in the USA and seeing as it isn't quite Loughnassa without them - well, I'd love some dried Bilberries for the pantry. Huckleberries would do in a pinch but those are hard to come by too. When I was growing up, we could still find Huckleberries wild even in NYC. (They grew in deserted parts of parks and along old footpaths) Incidentally, I am not a Pagan or a Neo-Pagan but that doesn't stop me from carrying on with a tradtional on Bilberry Sunday.

I am married - going on eleven years and have no children (not by choice). I am a doting auntie, but my nieces and nephews are far away. I have 1 and a half cats and sadly, my dog died last year. I have yet to recover enough to adopt another one. My full cat is a gigantic female marmalade. She's freakin' huge. She looks like she's a small dog wearing a cat suit. I blame it genetics - her father was also her grandfather - you know how cats do that sometimes. She doesn't need or want for anything - spoiled fat girl she is! Actually, she's not fat - just huge in size. I shouldn't call her fat - she'll get a complex.

My half of a cat is a small black male named Inky and he's my current "baby". He lives under out cottage except when it rains or is terribly cold. Then he asks to come in for a cuddle. He could use a nice bright red collar with a bell or any kind of cool, california hippy/surfer type of collar He tells me he surfs from time to time when it rains really hard and the waves start crashing in the storm drains.   His current collar is black and is getting frayed. Inky was tossed out of his first home by an evil boyfriend and came to live under our house when he was only 5 months old. He has trust issues but he's a good boy.

I'll come back and write more later.

Mrzzy's Unknown Distinguished Christmas Airborne Transporter (of gifts) aka MUDCAT (og)

You're very quiet, aren't you? Is this a character trait or are you attempting to lull me and the reindeer into a false sense of security? Just to let you know that I'm working long hours with the NES (National Elf Service - not sure which nation, mind you)to try to sort out the best possible pressies but we have only minimal information to go on. Now I might be able to cope with this, but the Elves and the reindeer are beginning to get a little restive. As a sop to their professional scruples I've had to agree to letting the surveillance team do their stuff, so if you notice some strange flashing lights around in the next week or so, or hear the occasional thump in the night please don't be alarmed. The lights will probably be green, the thump will sound exactly like an Elf falling off a reindeer - anything else and I'd advise calling for assistance.

But if you'd prefer me to cancel the whole surveillance operation, just wave at us in the next few days and we'll say no more about it.

No hints from you this year
How naughty is that?
Have resorted to trawling

Help your poor old Santa
On this thread you should post
Your likes and your dislikes

Oh Santa, I haven't been very good this year. I tried, oh how I tried, but no matter how hard I tried I seem to have failed. There was that little matter of the pasta, for example. Yes, I admit that I shouldn't have eaten it in bed, but I didn't realize that uncooked pasta would leave crumbs. And that business with the maggots, well, I was trying to raise them for fishing bait. It's hard to be good out here in Idaho, Santa, what with the Legion to lead me astray. I don't even deserve a lump of coal or a rotten potato this Christmas. (Sniff, sniff, sniffle) I'd so much like to have presents like all the others, but I don't deserve them. Give them to someone who has managed to be good, nay, even angelic, all year and not to a rotten poop-head like me.

Dear Silenus Charm Elf:

I've thought of a couple of CDs I'd really love to have:

I was watching The Devils rejects a few months ago and was very taken with some Terry Reid songs that Rob Zombie included on the Soundrtrack - unfortunately, if I want to buy them on iTunes, I have to buy the entire soundtrack and I have all the other songs. So i looked him up and he turns out to be quite the influential but forgotten artist from the early seventies. I have obn my Amazon Wishlist 2 of his CDs:

Seed of Memory
River

I am also very in love with a current folkish group called Hem and have none of their recordings. 2 of their songs have been used in American insurance commericals and they are both unbelievably wonderful - "Half Acre" and "The part where you let go". I would love any of their CDs or EPs which are:

Rabbit Songs
Home Again, Home Again
Funnel cloud
Enveningland
Birds, Beast, Flowers
No Word From Tom
I'm Talking With My Mouth


I would also love to have any Stephen Stills Solo material or that album he did as Manassas - the earlier the better - I'm an early seventies kind of gal. I may only have been 6 in 1970 but '70 thru '75 seems to be my big musical fave era

I don't have any Chris Hillman solo stuff either and I love him. Hard to say which ones I would like. I love Steve Earle but the latest CD I have is The Mountain. The Mountain is my favortie of his post-heroin comeback records but I would love to have a copy of Train a Comin' because it has a wonderful song on it that Emmylou Harris later covered called "Goodbye". His version is just as heartbreaking as hers but for very different reasons.


How's that?

Dear, dear SS
As a bit of a linguist myself I'm most intrigued with your forms of expression, but I suspect they're all there as distractions and diversions, concealing your inner warm core of being which is, as I now understand it, multi-national and vario-ethnic.
Anyway, whoever said that about the malt and the kookaburra must have been following some other Tabster because I can promise you (a)we're not a rich enough household to purchase malt (cheap Aldi Scotch IF we're lucky) and (b) there are no kookaburras in our part of Wales.
I have been as good as possible this year. There may have been one or two lapses, such as when my sat nav took me astray and I confess to saying some rude words, but really I don't think I deserve to be punished for this. Should I organise a petition of my well-wishers to persuade you further?
Yours in some distress about the wrongful accusations ...
Tabster.

Hi Peg the leg pirate santa

So many questions!!!!!! My pipes are bellows blown and I mostly play with the D chanter (Tunes in G and Am in one octave where poss) but I can also use the A chanter but that's a bit of a stretch. They are a bit like Northumbrian pipes but have an open ended chanter. I have got the book More Power to Your elbow and also the Orange session book and another by Dave Shaw on Irish tunes adapted for smallpipes but that's it!

They got a pink one too and a blue one - has ye got dems either? Nope

Please say yez play something other than bagpipes: You'll never guess what from my name !!!!!!! or you can read all about it on my band,s website : http://www.folkicons.co.uk/flychau.htm

-iffin yez do, does ye need jewlery for there? (please say yes) Tut tut!

Does ye have a doggie or kittie? Does they have holes in them ears? (please say yes) I had some rats but sadly they have gone to the great ratty place in the sky ...maybe I shouldn't have tried making holes.... I wouldn't mind a parrot..now there's a thought


Does ye drink likkor? Iffin yes, what color? Iffin color is Clear, say what flavor YES YES YES ANY COLOUR ANY FLAVOUR except white and fizzy and sweet and cocktail stuff with martini type stuff cos that makes me unwell and prevents me from drinking anything else

Does ye drink wine or ale? Iffin so what color? YES RED wine and Beer esp. Guinness

Does ye like sweets? iffin yes, what color? YES but not coconut

Does ye like limmericks? (harrr harrr harr)
There once was a piratical santa
Who had a piratical mantra
But with only one leg and that was a peg
The pirate kept falling over
Yes I think so

Does ye do that Christmas thing with the tree and all? Oh Yes
- iffin yez do, does ye want sparkly bits for to put on the tree? Oh Yes

Does ye like purty smelling things? Iffin yes, what flavor?Patchouli,Sandlewood

Does ye like candles? iffin yes, what flavor? See above

From: GUEST,MeganL's Increasingly Surprised Santa
Date: 17 Oct 07 - 09:52 AM

The person known as One Who Knows has now been interviewed thoroughly and in great detail, and I'm sorry to say that the outcome of the interview does not bode well for what kind of presents are to be sent to the Orkney Islands. (On the other hand, anybody with a bit of cash to spare would be well advised to invest in coal shares).

However, no final decision will be made until MeganL has been given a fair chance to defend herself against the allegations made by One Who Knows.

What was told me in the strictest confidence does ease my mind quite significantly with respect to the upcoming McMudgather. I was worried about letting a girl of tender disposition loose amongst the likes of Secsy Liz and MacKenzie, but, by the sound of it, there's absolutely no need to fret on that account. If my informant has it right, Ms MeganL should be well and truly capable of looking after herself and maybe the worry should instead be directed towards anybody who is going to associate with her over the upcoming weekend (she did state a certain desire to 'skelp' MacKenzie, maybe someone should issue him with a hard hat for the weekend? But that would be up to his own Santa to see to, I've got problems enough of my own keeping track of this one girl).

Megan, my Dear, what do you have to say to all this? And are you ready for your very first Mudgather? Have fun, Megan!

MISS

Well now _ Sarah has been so very good, she has. Ole Peg Leg has so many pressies to consider now. Since yez not be wanting teeth-bling, I'll be spendin' more on yummies an musik.

I'm not a stinjee Pirate mind you - I try to get something for St. Nicholas Day as well as Christmas, so be sure ta look in yer shooz on the appointed day. If yez don't and just wear 'em the livelong day, yer toez might be squishin' the goodies.

So sorry ta hear yer lil rattley pals is no more. I likes a good rat and not with cheese and sausage neither. Livin' on a ship, we gets used to them ratties and are right glad when they warn of leaks an imminent sinkings. We tries to bring along rat chow for 'em too (them block type things) so dem ratties'll not be tempted to eat our hardtack & jerky. I find they much prefer fresh fruit and some curds without whey. Healthy buggers, them ratties and much cleaner than sailors or parrots. Pirates only 'ave parrots in da moving pictures. No self-respectin' pirates stand for parrot poops all over the poop-deck..Arrrrh harr harr. An them empty seed hulls are nasty too. Rats is better.

I gots a rat ye know. He sits on my shoulder an wraps his long scaly tail round my neck . Hims is called Tuco. He gots brothers named Blondie an' Angel Eyes but they sails on t'other ship with One-Eye Wongo. Tuco is a right fat little ratter but I luvs him. Sings in my ear when happy, he does!

So is ratties yer totem animal then? Does figures of 'em bring ye luck?

Animaterra,

This Secret Santa is taking the job seriously. Extensive research is the result. A few tears have been shed along the way--sufficient to say there will be no coal in your stocking this year, my dear!

I must ask a personal question, but seeing as secrecy is an issue, I must ask it in a public place lest I give myself away. It concerns question number 9:

    9. what is your t-shirt size?
    Don't wear 'em.

Do you wear some other form of clothing, or must I cross garments completely off the list of possibilities? I visualize you sitting in a chair with a ukulele, naked save for a scarf around your neck and a Mudcat shawl around your shoulders.

Your assistance is urgently requested to solve this puzzle!

YASSS!

Household color schemes? Dust and cat hair probably don't count as real colors . . .

I have tons of kitchen gadgets, inherited a number of years ago, but I love to cook and would be interested in local spices or ingredients from your region.

I have tons of books, I have a library card, and I work in a library. I believe in redundancy, but probably best to skip this category (unless you've written a book?)

I could use a wall calendar with nice photos and enough space to write a little something about a guitar lesson or a trip to the vet on each date. Maybe a calendar from your locality?

Does this help?

Dear Secret Secret Santa.

I've been a very naughty Santee and not put up a new set of clues this year, but you have obviously scouted around and found my last years' ones. With the exception of the specific request last year for the soundtrack of Amelie, which my last year's SS very kindly gave me, all my likes and dislikes are pretty much the same as last year.

I've also been very naughty and been spending less time on Mudcat and more time on Facebook, playing Pirates. ARRR. Be ye of the Pirate persuasion at times? Personally, I think we all have a little bit of pirate in us ;-)

Hi again Santy,

In answer to your question: "If I'd practice a little more, I'd be able to play a lot better".

I've had one Celtic harp or another since 1980 or so, but I need to learn to play it better. I've only had one teacher for a short time, over a decade ago, and the rest of the time - well I mostly look at the harp and wonder how to play it well. Going to music sessions took me to the level of being able to play along using chords, but I haven't mastered the art of melody and accompaniment. There are a few songs I can stumble through, haltingly, and that's it.

It's very nice to know that there is a harp connection with my Secret Santy.

You see, it's the moorhens, mice, sticks and stones that worry me. And the rather fist-shaking tone of message. I'm a gentle soul, not given to confrontations, and I've had a remarkably well-behaved year in which I've done my best to help others and keep my temper at all times, so I wasn't expecting multi-lingual suggestions that I've been mistreating kookaburras with alcohol and so on.
I don't suppose we've ever met so you only have my word for this, I know, but send an elf or a reindeer along at any time and they can check out my credentials. I'm just not used to a Santa who seems to be grumpy before the festive season even starts. Can I make you a nice cup of tea, perhaps, and offer you one of my home-made mince pies? I used only the very best cooking brandy in the mincemeat...

Look. I got your place bugged, ya know. There are elves every place you look, only you can't see 'em. You stepped on poor old Clodhop yestereve, only we can't hold it against you since Cloddy was drunk on some of your vanilla extract (again) and so it was his own fault. Besides, it probably did him some good since he was singing "Eleanor Rigby" again and off-key as usual, which wouldn't be so bad if he knew any of the words besides "Eleanor Rigby." Drives the other elves over the edge, it does. So we marked that up in the "Good Girl" column of Tabster's Big Fat Christmas Book O' Black Marks and removed one of the sticks from the pile of presents.

And you might be a gentle soul, and good on ya for it. But I got problems up here in the Snowy North, what with the Russians planting a flag on the sea floor and handing me an eviction notice, the General Strike called by Elves and Labourers International Union of Labourers and Elves that went on from February to August, and, of course, Canada trying to give me Equalisation Payments. The reindeer got the scours back around the first of the month (you ever drench a reindeer?) and Blitzen ran off with a caribou gang called "Hell's Hornys." Not to mention the cost of raw materials going up up up because of the cost of diesel.

And then there are the letters from the kids: "Santa, gimme a grenade launcher" "Santa, I want Britney Spears for Christmas" "Santa, I think you're a big fat fake and bring me a new bicycle if you're not." Come on, you little greedheads! You ever learn to say "Please"? The only letter I'm even CONSIDERING filling was from little Timmy O'Brien who wrote and asked, "Couldn't you make Paris Hilton disappear?" Right now, everybody else is going to get seaweed in their socks come Christmas morning.

But don't worry about it...YOUR gifts will be on the way long before that.

Sincerely yours,
One Very, Very, Very Harassed Santa

Your card was waiting for me on my return from the colder regions. How clever of you to arrange to have the postmark obscured by the barcode! The date is legible but not the location.

As you are apparently a regular visitor to the Highlands, perhaps I might find your name among the participants (or dropouts) at the McMudgather. You may have been much closer to me this week than either you or I imagined at the time.

Hello, O dear lost Santa! I've not had a post from you since October 4th and am starting to worry. I enjoy these gift exchanges immensely, and have been known to write the equivalent of short novels bouncing off the posts of my benefactors, and what's more, a Santee can even recycle characters from past years, if needs be, wheras a Santa can not.

I'm ready to do more than just wait quietly for a bountiful box of goodies if you'll but come out of hiding and throw out some sort of a line--Life, Straight, Tag or Punch. It's the way for one on the recieving end to give back, so I hope to hear from you soon and get things rolling. Time runneth short.

Besides, gruel gets old and hard if it's left out too long for elves that don't show, and then you either have to soak the bowl for a few days, or else take the stuff off with a chisel.

Well, I suppose I'd better get the presents together and get them posted since the reindeer are all down with the Great Pox at the moment (it's a long and sordid tale). All the way to The Other Side Of The World too. Ho-hum. And she hasn't even done one really naughty thing this past year -- The Bureau discovered that the report about the drunken kookaburra was the result of a mix-up in the Records Office, and you may rest assured that the responsible party has been gently and kindly reprimanded by Good Old Father Christmas and that it shan't happen ever again.

Let's see: John O' Groats to the Falklands, thence to Diego Garcia and Majorca, to the Faroes, to Qaanaaq, to Ulan Bator for a few weeks, then to Rathdrum for further sorting for shipment to Duluth, back to Belfast, mistakenly shipped to Furstenau and then to Castle Rising in East Anglia, a refusal by the Bishop of Ely, return to John O' Groats, reposted, and as the circle slowly shrinks Tabster will get her pressie package about Michaelmas next. I hope that the yak butter is still fresh, the kvass drinkable, and the freshly caught salmon...well anyway.

Dear Santa

Your delivery system sounds uncannily like one that we experienced a year or so back when expecting an electronic part from Frankfurt. But I'm sure you know what you're doing, and there are, after all, many miles between us (aren't there?). I was taken aback by the drunken kookaburra story, but I suppose someone got confused between South Wales and New South Wales (easily done). I'm in the original one, but then you knew that.

Anyway, I hope the reindeer recover soon. Yak butter and kvass probably have an indefinite shelf life, but it might be an idea to smoke the salmon. On the other hand, when I re-read this I have a nasty image of an elf with a rolled up salmon fillet hanging out of his mouth ....

In any case we'll make sure we clean out the chimney in readiness.

Thank you, Santa!

Why, of course, esteemed Santa-BOSS (or would that be BOSS-Santa?), I'm always behaving. Sometimes good, sometimes a teeny weeny fraction less than that, but if the question is as asked "have you been behaving?", then definitely the answer is a resounding yes.

Santa, to be honest I cook as little as I can get away with without actually starving. I don't know much about it, and I honestly thought it were chicken (it tasted like chicken), but if you say there's people in it, maybe I should dump the left-overs that I put in the freezer before the police come around knocking on my door?

Dunno, but I found I got along really well with that crazy bullfrog and his mad English woman wife. But then we do have a saying here that goes "You don't have to be crazy to be here, but it sure helps!" :o)

Perhaps you've not encountered the doctrine according to PeeWee Herman--I'll remind you that in his playhouse christmas special he learned that HIS LIST WAS SO LONG that the other kids weren't going to get any gifts from Santa. So he got smart and backed off and let Santa distribute the gifts as they needed to be.

A word to the wise. You're going to upset Santa if you don't get a grip. Not a pistol grip, either. Just a grip.

Regression analysis, histograms, scatter analysis, relative standard of deviation, co-efficient of variation, and other tools were used to build matrices of analyte content which were as free of bias as possible (a confidence level of plus-or-minus 1%).

We can say with confidence that our methods produced the most complete and accurate such set of matrices ever achieved. We will, in fact, be submitting our methodology to The Journal of Statistical Behaviour Predicative Studies.

My house brownies, Hash & McGhee, have not reported any elf activity and since only gruel has been put out as instructed, rather than the booze that made the back courtyard a meeting and partying place for the local wee folk as was chronicled here last year, their vigil has been no fun thus far. Molly The Cat hasn't caught any strange wildlife either, and she partied with the wee ones last year and is used to them. What, if anything, could be happening amidst all this silence? I suppose I'll have to put out spirits and food again to appease the brownies and score some points. The neighbor who complained about their singalongs last year is gone. There'll be a party waiting for your elves when they get here, if they even bother, or even if they don't.

To my Santa...

Having just bottled the August (first crop) sloe gin, and found I had three glasses too much to go into the bottles, I've tried a Sloe Screw and find you have good taste.

However, as a firm believer in not drinking and driving, I feel honour bound to leave just the orange juice for you and an oaty bake bar for the reindeer. I don't care how magical you are, alcohol + vehicle + animals = trouble.

If you should happen upon my house at any other time and you aren't in charge of a moving vehicle, then you're more than welcome to partake of intoxicating beverages. Manitas has some rather old whisky hidden away which I'm sure needs drinking.

Secsy, are you looking over your shoulder? Do you notice movement just outside your range of vision from time to time? If you do, it's just the little group of elves detailed to keeping an eye on your every move from now on and until the Festive Season is over. And if one of them was looking through the wrong window on Sunday last, you can rest assured one of the others will have been more vigilant, so don't feel too sure that you can get away with fooling them.

Elf Snugglebutt has already reported back that Elf Dripplynose was caught oogling your tits. He says you've got great tits, but he likes the blue ones better. He was duly reprimanded and told to get back on the job in hand.

I'm afraid Santa may not be able to drive the sleigh himself, come the time. The poor soul has had a minor accident, you see. He was trying to fondle a raven black pussy, but it wasn't as friendly and docile as first assumed, so it sunk its claws into his hand and left him with severe scratches. His hands have now been bandaged, so he won't be able to do more fondling in the very near future, I fear. Hopefully, he'll be fully fighting fit for Christmas, but we've decided that it's better to let someone else be in charge of the sleigh. On the other hand this means, that you can safely let him have the Slow Screw he so desperatedly desires. I do think, however, that you're right in refusing to let the reindeer have any Buttered Rum. They'll do nicely on oaty bake bars.

Santa, you don't need to worry. Any gifts I receive will indeed be treasured and clasped to my rather ample bosom for as long as is appropriate. A haddock, for example, would last rather less time there than a Sean Bean (picking up on another thread). Actually, don't bother with the Sean Bean as I think my husband might object ...The last time I parted with a gift (rather more unwanted than wanted) was when I was about 6 years old and sacrificed a pack of jellied fruit (a noxious form of confectionery, if you ask me) to the greater good of a family visit to some distant relatives.   I was then heard to explain to the new recipients that "they were mine really but I didn't like them so you can have them" in tones that suggested I had in fact licked each one first.
I will be suitably grateful for all gifts, and I am also happy to be watched by elves or any other of your secret helpers to prove my honesty and good will.
Yours, ever

They were a remarkably nasty bunch, and what they left out as a treat every Christmas I just don't like to think about even now. No, Santa didn't partake and they simply didn't get the hint of the coal in their stockings, year after year.

Perhaps you'd care to try one of our regional specialities (tinned for the journey, but still tasty enough) such as squid liver pate or some freeze-dried muktuk? (I'm sorry, but there was no fresh haddock to be had at the dock.)

The regional specialities you mention sound absolutely fascinating. What is a muktuk, and is it difficult to freeze-dry? Does it take a while to catch, or do you rear them in herds? How big, exactly, is a squid's liver? I confess I was once given air-dried reindeer (when for once I had been upgraded to business class on British Airways) but I found it almost impossible to eat with thoughts of Rudolf and friends in my mind.
I'm really not difficult to please, in terms of gifts. And a signed photograph would be welcomed, too - which I promise not to put up on eBay!

Chocolate, though, you said in your hints? I'll have to see what I can do. Ah, but why am I writing this if you're not reading it in the first place?

I enjoy the outdoors, grandkids, I retired once but moved to Alaska and got talked into teaching elementary music again. I hope this helps, I'm easy to please and trying really hard to be good. bet

I see.. Maybe I should send you some kind of beacon for the reindeer to navigate by? Some little item you could put in your garden. A pink flamingo with a little GPS system in it?

It's not so bad to be adrift, it can be an adventure, too, you know. Do you know this song?

I could have stayed in the harbour safe from the storm and the gale
Letting the sands run through my hands watching as others set sail
But I would have spent time counting the things I'd never known
Passions laid waste, dreams misplaced, the seeds of desire unsown

I'm a single handed sailor
Lost, adrift and alone
Hoping to ride the wind and the tide
Hoping to find my way home

The sea is ever changing like the beat of a restless heart
Out there I find some peace of mind to keep me from falling apart
When the voyage was ended I'd stand once again on the shore
I'd take time to smile and rest for a while before setting sail once more

I'm a single handed sailor
Lost, adrift and alone
Hoping to ride the wind and the tide
Hoping to find my way home

You know I must roam the ocean, the wanderlust still burns
Beneath empty skies I remember the ties that bind and I will always return

I'm a single handed sailor
Lost, adrift and alone
Hoping to ride the wind and the tide
Hoping to find my way home
(Colin Henderson)

Hellooo, Santa! So sorry to seem neglectful! I was super busy planning the Getaway, and then got sick after it (Better, now, thanks...). That's no excuse, I realize, but perhaps it will do as an explanation for my lack of participation here.

I love your cute rhymes -- unfortunately I'm not very good at that sort of thing, so this sorry prose will have to do.

As for hints, well -- um -- I DO like surprises, and my Mom always told me it wasn't polite to actually ASK for stuff... But I always enjoy hearing Mudcatters' music and learning about their part of the world. The hints I posted in previous years are still valid, for whatever they're worth.

And in case you're wondering, I HAVE been good -- even if a bit slow! And I do appreciate patience!

Your humble Santee,
Nancy

From: Severn
Date: 12 Nov 07 - 08:53 AM

Glad to hear from you again. I was getting worried. Irish Whiskey seems to be one of my Beverages Of Choice and one that I actually keep on hand. I shall start putting some out and hope the house brownies and the other wee folk and local critters don't party too hard in your honor. They got a little out of hand waiting for the Sussex Suspects of delivery elves that took their time in getting here and enabled things to turn into nightly drunken singarounds that seemed to increase in size every night, as chronically chronicled in last year's threads. Your elves will have a fine reception waiting for them even if the guests might've forgotten what they were celebrating by that time. But Irish Whiskey it shall be!

Mules, however, I've never dealt with in a Christmas context before.
Is this going to be more of a Frankie Laine-type Mule Train or closer to that of Spike Jones? How many of them have to be fed? I have an antique cardboard advertising sign hanging in my laundry area dated 1915 for 20 Mule Team Borax and showing One of said teams in Death valley somewhere. (It's next to another sign advertising the Savage Wringerless Washer-Dryer with the "exclusive Spin Rinse-Spin Dry", but I digress). Anyway, do your elves have any Holiday Mule Train songs that might need to be entered into the Digital Tradition and shared with both the assembled Mudcat Multitudes and those few with some assembly still required but batteries included?
I'm sure we'd all like to hear them.

And, of course, I learned from watching Our Gang/Little Rascals comedies such as "Free Wheeling" and "Honky Donky" what happens when mules and hard liquor meet. So keep them away from the Irish Whiskey so as they don't get to acting like poor Algebra, beacase Spanky and Scotty are no longer around with the alarm clock to save you! If they start singing, there's not much of a market here for "Mew-ell Sing We Clear". And if too much damage is inflicted, people will stop believing, and you can't sue somebody you don't believe in for damages. Which kind of leaves....well, you get the idea!

So I await their arrival with breath that, while somewhat baited, probably cannot match that of a mule team. And if this works out, I can compose a Holiday Opera called "A Mule & The Night Visitors" and retire on royalties and residuals.

So get cracking the whip, Dear Santa, (or if you're female, a few discreet flicks of your lashes would do) and I'll faithfully await your arrival.

Of course it's very hard to tell from this distance if the reinforcement you need is positive or negative, but my elves are slowly assembling a small collection of goodies for your yuletide.

But whether you will need a corset to rein in your delight must remain a moot point. (I believe the points on a moot are not very sharp, so it should be relatively painless).

You should be hearing a bit more from me shortly, as i am spending a few days with a very old friend.

Something mysterious. I received a little package from Micca, from the Getaway, with a sheet of get well wishes and autographs from Mudcatters. I posted about it in that thread. Anyway, there was a clue of sorts to my Secret Santa, who was there! Now...THANK YOU, SANTA, and here's what I know:

My sheet of autographs had a certain name/signature then a little ways over "Your Secret Santa." At first I thought my SS had signed their real name, but now that I look at it, I think they may be two separate signatures, BUT I cannot read the first one completely. It looks like "Linda Lonane?" The only Linda I know of is Linda Goodman and it definitely doesn't look like "Goodman," so any of you have any clues without giving away my SS? Oh, it might not be "Linda" it could be "Linder?" Help!**bg** And, then again, as I said, they may be two completely different folks!

Sehr geehrte(r) BOSS Santa Weinachtsmann/frau,

Gewiß, Deutsch wird hier sowie verstanden als auch gesprochen (oder war das "gebrochen"?). Hmmm.. wie auch immer.. Jedenfalls, kein Problem, ich habe sogar bereits deutschsprachige LPs. Plattdeutsch kenne ich zwar nicht so gut, leider.

My little furry friend is usually quite happy about my various departures from the house, as he's been getting used to associating that with food. Feed dog, sneak out the door, and when I come home he's curled up in his bed (or in mine..!!), well contented and usually with his head on one or both of my indoor shoes. There's really *no* accounting for taste, is there?

I have nothing whatsoever against flamingos, live or fake. I've heard you can get some neat ones with additional functionality like, say, toilet paper holders and what have you. So please don't throttle any elves on my account, esteemed BOSS Santa.

There's a reindeer landing strip nearby, I hope you and/or your elves can find it. I hope your other yule-tide preparations are also running according to schedule.

Best wishes,

Bente

Just what IS it that you do with scampering elves should you catch them? If I thought for a minute that any of my employees were to be captured in mid-scamper and be made into elf scampi or elf cobbler or tortured or displayed or harmed in any manner, the nature of your box's contents would drastically change instantly, by magic. If you do, indeed, have any idea of my identity, then you must also know the types of things I am capable when angered, and you may not realize what measures the brotherhood of elves might resort to on their own before I could stop them.

The globe-trotting elves themselves seemingly may not realize my full knowledge and powers, but knowing when they have been bad or good as well as all the Santees themselves, I will deal with them on my own time in my own way.

So you better watch out and be good, for goodness sake!

Jack is still in Iceland - he's a changed puppy since the rehab - pictures of which can be seen here.

I don't think he'd be a party to any such antics now, and China has never been on his agenda.

It's not doing his rehab process any good at all for you to be casting nasturtiums at his alleged behaviour. He may have acted unwisely in the past, but that, like his tail, is all behind him. Please, give him a chance to redeem himself and not accuse him of these pranks.

So, should we open it to place it under the tree or should we just open it and enjoy (oh, forget that, we must wait for Christmas). So, should we open the package or just place the package itself under the tree for the sweet package opening time Christmas day?

Well, you have done the deed! We are totally out of our minds wondering what it might be! We sure do appreciate you and hope you have a wonderful holiday season and we wouldn't mind a hint or so about who the heck you are. Do you have a beard or do you have a bow? We want to know!!

There is a selection of things in your parcel in the hope that you will find something you like in there, I did wrap them all individually in Christmas paper so you can open if you like.

There a a few clues in there as to where I am from, although not to who I am on Mudcat, I wear a bow and not a beard!

Expect the unexpected soon.

Wrapping has begun, the elves have managed to not stick themselves together with the sellotape but the hot glue gun has been taken away by Health and Safety.

On its arrival, you may open the purple one. The blue one is for THE DAY.

Should you find any parcel not labelled for you, please could you pass it to the appropriate person.

Becca my dear

I sent my elves to have a word with a former santee of yours though their reports seemed to make little sence they say the woman kept babbling on about long legged birds, perhaps I should have made one of your gifts a little longer if that is the case.

To late however to do anything about that now since the parcel has been handed to my alternative delivery source. The reindeers refuse to do a thing before christmas eve. Please inform your furry friends that any furry creature seen in the water in the vicinity of Maine is NOT i repeat NOT food. the number of parcels that have gone astray because cats cannot control their urge to consume anything furry:( Now it may take a little while to arrive because the gulf stream plays up a bit at this time of year and my alternative delivery source does not like getting to cold.

Take care my dear and inform your dear papa that he is being watched so keep doing the exercises or i will be forced to forward a parcel of Ruddolph droppings.

Your sincerely

Esteemed BOSS Santa,

Thank you ever so much for the update, I'm very much looking forward to your communications. I'm also relieved to hear that no elves were harmed in the process :-) I wouldn't mind, though, if one or two elves were indeed stuck to the parcel, you never know when a couple of replacement elves might come in handy. Already we've heard stories of elves getting lost in China and some that may be on the verge of perishing off the Maine coast. Who knows, it might happen to some of mine, too, when the time to deliver comes..

Hot glue gun taken away, you say? Health and Safety do tend to have a dampening effect on all sort of revelries, these days, don't they? I mean, what's the harm in letting a few harmless elves have some fun with a hot glue gun..? Authorities, indeed!!

Your instructions regarding the whens, wheres and whys have been duly noted and taken ad notam. Things shall be carried out according to your instructions, oh esteemed BOSS, and to the letter.

There's a dog leaning heavily on me here, tail wagging, ears pricked - insofar as dacshhund ears can at all be pricked - and tongue lolling. He wants to know if he may consider himeself "a person" in this respect? Or do only two-leggers qualify for that description by your standards? He would like to make it clear that he has all of 12 years of practice and experience in opening his own christmas presents, so opening one would pose no problem whatsoever..

He also wanted to sign himself "hopefully yours", but I told him I'll have none of that, as I consider him "hopefully mine". Hopefully, you don't mind, Esteemed BOSS Santa.

Reverent and expectant greetings from Denmark,

Bente

Dear Santa well according to the lass in the resturant there was a rogue elf seen getting drunk in Bejing when he was arrested he asked them if they had seen his friend Jack. after much searching the police officer was able to tell him the troublemaker was causing earthquakes in Iceland. I knew Skarpi should never have let Jack and the trolls get a boom box and brenavin.

Anyway said elf has now been released from police custody and escorted to the airport with a gentle advice on not returning to Bejing in the near future and definately never to bring Jack with him. Last seen boarding plane to Iceland clutching two number 26 a number 59 and a side order of 102. so the reindeers should be able to intercept him before he reaches the party.

In fact, your Santa has been expending what little energy he or she has left over from actually working for a living on gathering an assortment of goodies for you. And the assortment is almost complete! Your pressie will be winging its way to Scotland very soon, so rest easy!

Hullo Dave'sWife,

I was wondering, did you get Santa's postcard? I hope so. He was passing through the Tarheel State recently and thought you might like a recipe souvenir. Santa loves to cook, much like you -- and like you, he believes that old family recipes are the best. He'll see what he can do in that regard. You wouldn't believe how old his family is!

Santa hopes that you will have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and he also rather selfishly hopes that you will post your dinner menu somewhere in Mudcat, assuming you're cooking -- your brilliant food writing always whets his appetite for his next meal. Alas, as we approach Christmas that next meal is often a quick mug of soup, or at best grilled cheese...

Yours in haste,

SO, Santa HELLO! I do like tea, we have tea in our office and chat in the afternoons -- I have a good boss, that way--. Scents I don't do so well with, some bother my tummy. I do like and use an assortment of citrus-y scents though. My favorite is orange-blossom.

So, Santa please write again! What sort of treat should I leave for you and the crew at my building's front desk? (you have to be buzzed in to access any chimneys). Please note that they have a rubber mat so you all can wipe your 34 (38?) assorted feet. Mind the terrazzo, it's slippery for snowy hooves.

Been a while. Santa's been in gaol very busy, tuning up the old sleigh, flogging petting the reindeer, and most of all trying to find just exactly the right present for Tabster.

It isn't easy being Santa, what with all the groupies and everything.

Santa was thinking that you might like an all-expence-paid holiday in some exotic sclime, but quickly learned that Luna City doesn't yet exist. Sooooo...Santa will have to send you gold, I suppose. And perhaps some reading materail about the North Pole.

Ol' Father Christmas will get it out this week, but it might come a little late for the holiday. What with the labour demands by that stinking elf union problems Santa had earlier this year, Santa can't afford to send it by express. In fact, Santa can barely afford a handcar.
