I'm excited to be back in the neighborhood and playing with my mates again!

As you will determine, one of the joys of Secret Santa is learning about you and your region.

1. What is your age range?
Somewhere between 57 and 59 years young.

2. Gender?
Female

3. Do you have a favorite color?
Colors found in nature in the northern hemisphere: rich and dark blues, reds, purples, greens, yellows- not crazy about pastels, orange/browns.

4. Favorite authors/type of book?
Fiction: Happy/cozy/well written - I enjoy "English cozy" and love children's fantasy
Some fantasy. LOTR is my standard for all time. Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman and ilk (but NOT horror, macabre)
Folklore and fairy tales, especially from your region
Non-fiction: Nature, especially from your region. History, biography, some science.
Songs and tunes from your region
Knitting patterns!

5. What books have you really been wanting?
Alice Starmore's Fair Isle books
Song or tune books, or regional crafts, especially fiber, from your region

6. What type of music do you like?
Harmony singing, traditional folk, world vocal or instrumental music, anything from your region
Love early music, baroque, fiddles, accordion, concertina---

7. What CDs have you really been wanting?
You choose!

8. What movies have you been wanting (DVD/BluRay)?
I want to discover Doctor Who. I also haven't seen the newer Pratchett movies

9. What is your t-shirt size?
L

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what?
Handmade spoons
Beeswax candles
Yarn- preferably natural fibers from your region

11. What are some of your other hobbies?
knitting, gardening, sailing

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry?
Pure gold (I'm lucky to have Dear Husband to take care of that for me)
From you, I would prefer hand crafted leather, wood, stone- especially from your region.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like.
I'm a singer, song leader, play accordion and concertina, I'm a contra and country dance caller/teacher, and an aging hippie happy homemaker.

I love dark chocolate, but don't care for chocolate with fruit, such as orange or raspberry
Other "sweet" loves: marzipan, vanilla cream, honey, ginger
I sometimes have an allergic reaction to walnuts, but other nuts are fine, even pecans.
I drink dark, strong "builder's tea" and my poison of choice is Taylor's of Harrogate Scottish Breakfast.
I do not, sadly, drink any alcohol


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

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry?
Silver, but I have very specific jewellery that I wear.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like.
I'm autistic, so sensory things can be interesting - I love the feel of velvet or velvety surfaces because they relax me. I'm also partial to sparkly things that I can play with.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful.
I'm diabetic, teetotal, terrified of clowns, spiders and dogs (among other things), and allergic to nickel silver and sodium metabisulphite (a food preservative). I also hate the feel of raw silk.

1. What is your age range? I'd like to think it doesn't matter - but old enough to be retired, and young enough to think that's ridiculous.

2. Gender? Female

3. Do you have a favorite color? Purple

4. Favorite authors/type of book? Good historical fiction (Dorothy Dunnett - but I have all her books), good fantasy/sci fi (Ursula K Le Guin, Charles de Lint, Neil Gaiman - and I have most of their books, too)

5. What books have you really been wanting? local folklore and legends. Medieval history (especially of Aragon and Catalonia)

6. What type of music do you like? folk and early music. Would like more Catalan/Occitan.

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? I haven't made a list but my husband and family tend to be good at following those.

8. What movies have you been wanting (DVD/BluRay)? Nothing in particular. Live in the UK so US DVDs won't necessarily play here and we haven't got BluRay.

9. What is your t-shirt size? XXL (but I'm trying to lose weight!)

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? Trying NOT to collect more stuff as we already have a lot.

11. What are some of your other hobbies? theatre, walking.

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? Either, but if it's earrings it has to be real gold or real silver. Love rose gold.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like. I love finding out about where my Secret Santa comes from and what interests them.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful. Not allergic to anything that might be significant here. Love natural smells, natural fabrics. A scarf, a warm hat or gloves (or even socks - size 6 UK) would all be welcome as where we live now is colder than where we were. By UK standards, that is!

1.What is your age range? 68, physically. Mentally, probably late 20s

2. Gender? female

3. Do you have a favorite color? No neon. I like the colors but they don?t like me.

4. Favorite authors/type of book?
Folklore, storytelling, story collections, oriental folklore and stories, science fiction, fantasy, anything local for you.

5. What books have you really been wanting? I work in a library, so I usually get to take care of that myself, but if you have any music hall, burlesque, or vaudeville recitations, etc. laying around?

6. What type of music do you like? Mostly traditional folk, vocal and instrumental. I was raised on classical, opera, and broadway, so that?s good. Oh, and medieval, Renaissance, Baroque - anything but modern discordant stuff. Novelty songs are always good, too.

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? I always enjoy anything local to you, or anything you?ve performed on. Other suggestions: If you?re Canadian, I?d like something by Penny Lang. I heard her when I was in college (mumble) years ago, and loved every minute of it. If you?re in Great Britain, I really need another copy of Taffy Thomas?s Take These Chains from My Heart. I have another friend who needs to hear it, and I don?t really want to just burn a duplicate.

8. What movies have you been wanting (DVD/BluRay)? DVD, it would have to be Area One. Folk or storytelling, if you have any.

9. What is your t-shirt size? XL, alas

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? I sort of accumulate figurines of dragons, foxes, and other wildlife, also cats. Nothing cutsey, though

11. What are some of your other hobbies? Besides folk and storytelling, I enjoy Japanese animation (aka anime), and I belong to a medieval recreation group (SCA) where I enjoy classes in performing arts, cooking, and of course singing, storytelling, etc.

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? I tend toward silver, but I like anything pretty.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like. Used is as good as new for me, maybe even better. Also, I?ve gotten some lovely Christmas ornaments in times past. So this is probably more than you ever wanted to know, but I thought I?d give you a wide menu to choose from. Don?t break your neck over this, as my grandmother used to say. I?ve never gotten a Mudcat gift that didn?t delight me.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful. I?m not allergic to anything.

2. Gender? Female

3. Do you have a favorite color? I like in-between colors (such as blue/green) and/or creative combinations.

4. Favorite authors/type of book?
5. What books have you really been wanting?

I've probably read it or got it if I wanted it, but I like, and don't buy art books cook books, books about local (to you) points of interest.

6. What type of music do you like? Mainly trad or trad-like a capella, Americana, or surprise me.

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? I've either bought them, or don't know. If it's you, or local enough so I wouldn't have it, I'd love it.

8. What movies have you been wanting (DVD/BluRay)? Got Netflix.

9. What is your t-shirt size? XL,

10. Do you collect anything? I don't ever get rid of anything, so I have stuff. I like beads, and hundred-dollar bills are always nice, but out of the price range.

11. What are some of your other hobbies? I get tattoos. Is that a hobby?

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? I gravitate towards silver, but I like gold too. HOWEVER, I'm allergic to most metals that aren't gold, sterling, or surgical steel.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like. I'd love something you made. Knitting, jewelry, anything artistic. I like tasty snacks: chocolate, anchovies (not together), nuts, jams & jellies, unique local (to you) goodies. Except cilantro.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful. Please see #12. I also dislike cilantro, so no homemade cilantro jelly, please.

Aha! This is where you hang out, I think? Now, just to let you know that there are a couple of elves in your general vicinity checking out your naughty or nice credentials. Not to worry. We don't sweat the small stuff. Grand larceny or murder, that would be a bit of a problem, but I'm sure that's not you, is it? And we're not too keen on orange-coloured people with obvious hair pieces either, but we hadn't heard that about you. Things are being prepared ....

Dear Quad-J Santa, I'm very sorry I didn't respond sooner. No, I don't care for His Orangeness with the candy-floss (or cotton candy, depending on your persuasion) hair. I also have not yet killed anyone, but I confess I've had fantasies. No larceny, either, or I wouldn't be constantly complaining about not having money.

It's great to hear from you! Any present would make me happy. I'm the kid that unwrapped gifts, got the toys out, and played with the box. (I'm pretty sure I can find boxes here, though. :)

1. What is your age range? Early 60s.

6. What type of music do you like? Your music!

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? See #6.

8. What movies have you been wanting (DVD/BluRay)? Nothing I can think of, with NetFlix, AmazonPrime and a good public library system at my disposal.

Dear Acme,

I've purchased several products from you over the years, and the cost is only equaled by what I've spent for bandages. That jerk bird laughs at me. I didn't mean to complain, as it's possibly not your fault.

I see I'll have to scrap the plan to buy gold-tone and pink, coconut-based jewelry. I'll dig something nice up, possibly from my yard.

Have a lovely evening.

Good morrow my dear lady. I have taken note of your desires and am now attempting to find items that might delight you. The elves have been set one particular mission which I hope will be completed in time for your delectable package to wing its way through the ether to your new abode.

I trust that you have been nice rather than naughty this year. We don?t want to just leave a lump of coal on the doorstep, do we!

Jacqui, you know that we Secret Santas sit down every day and talk over coffee and doughnuts. We trade ideas, and yesterday everyone agreed that youe and Kendall need gifts from the West Coast of the US. From Hollywood, to be exact. From Fredericks of Hollywood, to be even more precise. So please post the sizes you need or take what we, as a committee, chose. Or...never mind. We're sending someone to take your measure.

I told you to beware!

O, Famous and Fabulous Feminine Flaming Feline,

   My Elf-Scouts are already hard at work trying to procure quality presents. I do think we'll. Have to rule out the Pokemon Plushies. One of my scout elves snick into a toy store to check them out, climbed on the shelf for a closer look and some little child grabbed him and wanted to buy him. He yelled "BOO!" and the child ran off crying to its mother while my elf quickly ran for cover and now wants nothing to do with plushies and applied for hazardous duty pay. Fret not, as other great goodies will come your way.

Well, to be honest with you, it's been a tough time here at the North Pole, or the bit of it where we are. There's been a nasty case of galloping hoof rot among some of the reindeer, and most of the two legged staff have been smitten with snuffles and sneezes and coughs and diseases. So there's been more of a delay than anticipated. However, fear not - the gifts have been wrapped and will soon be on their way. It's a bit of a trek, but you will have guessed that. You have been a priority case and things should arrive in good time.

Hello out there! I'm waiting patiently for word from you, words being considered part of the present, when they're good and they're fun. My two House Brownies, Hash and McGhee, have seen no trace of your messengers among the Wee Folk aiding others this Christmas. They'd like to know where you are, so they can make sure the present's safe and be able to go out to whatever party that the local Wee Folk and any wandering visitors go to every year are attending. Thank You.

Well, it was a close call, according to Reindeer Central, but your package should soon be flying in your general direction. If I had known you would be so close, I would have hand-delivered it, since Iceland is a second home to me! As it is, it will arrive by the usual methods.

I guess this means you can stop behaving yourself, as the Deed is Done and there's nothing more I can do about it!

How are all things Polar?

What will you do if Trump lets his buddies drill and frack nearby? We certainly know who's been naughty and it's a knotty question. Can you think of something less dirty than coal to put in their stockings? All that coal will just encourage them. Maybe a cactus, or even an open jawed muskrat trap to snap shut on their greedy paws.

I appreciate whatever you'll be bringing me but you all up there be careful. It's a jungle out there, and all this climate denial was not well thawed out beforehand....

Well, my dear, from here on matters are in the hands of the elves. The reindeer are visiting the reindeer equivalent of a chiropodist, or podiatrist, or whatever you might call a hoof specialist, but the elves have resorted to more conventional methods of delivery. And the main thing is that the package is on its way. Don't let this be an excuse to alter your exemplary conduct, mind you. It could always turn to ashes in transit....
