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.

Somewhere between 57 and 59 years young.

Female

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!

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.

Silver, but I have very specific jewellery that I wear.

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.

Here is the 2016 thread for those wanting an early start, if their Santee participated last year. (That thread is closed so it isn't accidentally posted to - we don't want to wear out our welcome on the top of the page with too many Secret Santa threads in play.)

4. Favorite authors/type of book?

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.

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.

Dear Sarah,

I have been going over my records and find that your behavior is making us at Secret Santa Elves Central very suspicious. We are collecting and sorting appropriate items pertinent to your unique situation.

In other words, I'd take warning, if I were you...


...which I'm not...

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 ....
