Gee, how do you do all that fancy 'guest' stuff? I'm still trying to figure out how to change my postmark without getting arrested.

I was sort of joking about the tome. Don't expect to receive that from my mudcat Santa, but thought putting it in writing might get the idea into the REAL Santa's head. It's the kind of thing you put 10 dollars a week aside for the rest of your life to buy. Unless it's a business expense. I just love grammar, Latin and Greek roots, etymology of all kinds. You know, where words come from, and how we use the language. I'm the kind of wierdo who enjoys teaching subject/verb agreement.

Really, gift-wise, I'm easy, and not easy. I was serious about the sand: I have many of them, from all over the world, in small glass jars. But not nearly enough! It's very cool to hold them, and then see them compared to all the others, and imagine all the places they've come from. Kids love to help me plot them all on the globe.

I love gospel in the Black tradition, "folk" of almost any kind, but especially good, hard a cappella music. My CD of the year last year was Ken and Allison, Nextradition. After this Getaway, it's the Johnson Girls' and Kendall Morse.

I hate clothes, but wear 'em anyway. I especially hate t-shirts.

I'm a gardener, and a cook, and am relentlessly, ruthlessly curious.

Now you know more about me than most of my friends and family.

Dani

Since my Secret Santa duties have ended, sniff sniff, and I don't have anything to do, sniff sniff, and I have all this free web space at ivillage.com, why don't some of y'all send me some pictures to put up? Also, PM me if you want a web page for your santee.

I could disguise myself and play Santa for lots of folks, but I really do hate being anonymous. It's like my brother-in-law said about lying (he planned a surprise birthday party for his wife), "It gets easier the more you do it!"

Note to Dani or to Dani's Santa:

That "tome" can be found here at a price that you may be surprised to note is well within reasonable limits. If, for some reason, this link should not prove to connect properly, do a search for the title at: http://www.alibris.com/home.cfm

Others may also wish to investigate this (often inexpensive) source for books.

Ah!! Marie Santoinette!! Let them eat Guacamole!! (And Titanic Daquiris!!)

Dear Santa:
She's right, you know. It not so much that I can't cook, it's just that each attempt turns into, at worst, some monumental clean-up, or at best, a lesson in vulgarity for the neighbors.
Things I have learned: ALWAYS pit avacados before trying to make guacamole in the blender. Otherwise, you and 20 of your closest elves will end up covered in green flecks and having an inpromtu funeral by the dumpster, re-living all the great times you've had mixing drinks with said blender, and humming 'Taps'. Also: ALWAYS check to see that your appliances are turned off before you plug them in, especially hand mixers, and especially when trying to make tomato soup. I still stand firm, dear Santa, that I wasn't so much trying to throw this mixer towards the pot as I was trying to throw it away from myself...but you get the idea....

purring just knowing you're out there,
~JE

OK FOlks I need some help. On October 27th, someone posted as "GUEST, Jeri's secret santa" and asked a question of Jeri. I just got a PM from Jeri's secret Santa and she said that she did not make that post! I need for anyone out there who thinks that they are shopping for Jeri to PM me as soon as possible. I looked at all of my original PM's and I only gave Jeri's name out once, I think. So if you think you have Jeri, PM me. I mean, it's ok if Jeri gets two gifts but that means someone will get nothing, and that would make me sad. You all don't want me to be sad do you?????? *BG*

Not that I did any of that stuff.) I'm afraid I got a bit playful. It was me, hoping for a post like "hey, wait a minute - you can't be Jeri's SS, because I am!" Didn't work.

Watson,

Upon reassessment of the clues, I have changed my mind.

My secret Santa is male and lives in OZ, hence the phrase, "no worries" ala Paul Hogan. He is of average height, greying at the temples, and slight paunchy from over indulgence in Foster's. Small scar on forehead from crushing beer cans. He plays the guitar but never, never sings "Waltzing Mathilda."

Well, Well, Santa, am I getting warmer?

Dani, or a hint for Dani's SS,

If you haven't already read it, there is a book you would probably really like. It is called History in English Words, by Owen Barfield, who was a member of the Inklings, with C.S. Lewis & Tolkien, etc.

It traces the origins of words and relates them to the culture & social aspects of the original language's society.

Ah, well, whatever makes ya happy (that's the whole point, isn't it?). I've had such teeny-tiny Christmases of late that I want to make my Secret Santa's gift part of the day's celebration, so I hope (s)he'll understand. Last year: no Christmas dinner at all, and no present-exchanging with the family till the following Sunday (around my father's retirement-home-room bed). Fortunately a friend brought over a pressie in the morning, and I had two song-share parties to attend, so that was nice.

I can't imagine how diffecult it would be to read a knit one)!

And remember, to, that my birthday is January 12, and we have a tradition in my family of a week's grace period with that, and (frankly) I'm willing to extend my Holiday season into February, this year so tell your elves (and yourself) that time is not of the essence!

Hmmm, so I do have a secret Santa. I wonder. There was no snide comment on the condition of my current hat so it couldn't be Sinsull.

If you are from an area of the world that I am not then anything special from your neck of the woods would be fine.

I guess part of the fun is in the detective work. Let me review the clues:

"Brett old son" This would indicate to me an American, possibly with a southwestern or midwestern origin.

Then there is a comment on finding a pattern to make the hat in question. This is someone who is handy with cloth. That sems to point to a woman thought the use of "old son" might indicate a man. Hmmm. Gonna have to skull this one out.

Hi All

Sharon - Sounds a lot like my Christmases too. I don't really have a family and it's been 4 years now since I had even a passable relationship at holiday time. Usually I get invited over to a friend's family gathering and wind up feeling very dissappointed when I don't fit in as part of the family. I try to tell myself every year not to accept my friends generous offers, but I usually accept.

Oh well...

By the way, one of the homes around the corner from mine has decorated their yard for Christmas - they did so on Hallowe'en night while the kids were going trick-or-treating.

I've also spent more than a few Christmases alone, watching "It's a Wonderful Life" on TV...over and over and over...

By the way, thank you, oh my 'youknowwhat', for posting. I really appreciate it! (Was beginning to think I had a bad case of virtual cooties.)

Hi Sharon,

My SS did check in earlier - near the end of Part III.

I guess finding a bunch of friends to hang out with on Christmas who don't have family would be great. I've got a lot of wonderful friends, but they all have family so it's tough for me.

I struggle with it but it's really the only time of year I feel that way. (though Valentines Day has similar issues)

Anyway, I was thinking of doing myself up as Santa this year for my church's Holiday celebration, but I don't know if that will make me feel any better.

Everyone out there who has family, please remember that you have something that some of us don't have. Celebrate that and be understanding of friends who are alone during the holidays - sometimes it is easier for to be alone that to be in the warm presence of a family that is not our own.

I'm still really looking forward to my SS present - It'll be one of 4 I receive, most likely.

Blackcatter: Jeez, how did I miss your SS's post (with big, bold letters)? Sorry; I'll wake up soon. I'm glad to see your SS is alive, if not very talkative!

Your message about family celebrations is well taken; although my family's get-togethers can be more lukewarm than warm, they still provide a necessary connection. On the other hand, holiday gatherings certainly do not need to be restricted to get-togethers that exclude non-family members. I think that we, in the US especially, should do more visiting with friends, and truly welcoming them into our celebrations without making them feel awkward or out of place. Of course, we "invited friends" have a responsibility, too: to accept hospitality, and to get into the spirit of our host's festivities (in other words, enjoy ourselves!).

Jeri: I was hoping you knew the answer to my trivia question... 'cause I don't either! Anybody else out there know? (The question was: In the movie "It's a Wonderful Life", what was Mary Bailey's maiden name?)

To my Secret Santa: Ooh, yeah, bring on the rubber gloves! Then I'll be able to open my mail with confidence! ;^) In fact, I think I feel a song coming on...

(To the tune of "Rubber Ducky" from Sesame Street)

Rubber glovey, you're the one
You make work time so much fun
Rubber glovey, I'm aw-ful-ly fond of yooooou...

Rubber glovey, boy oh boy!
When I rub a dish with Joy*,
Rubber glovey, you're my fingers' best friend, it's true!

Oh, ev'ry day when I
Make my way to the sink-y
I find a little fella who's
Either yella or pink-y

Rubber glovey, I'll be cry'n'
Till my Santa makes you mine!
Rubber glovey I'd like to put on, luv –
Rubber glovey, I'm aw-ful-ly fond of you!

Oh no! Santa's Secret Margaritas would be lovely!
Actually, I don't have knick-knacks, I have two cats. I do have a windowsill devoted to a bunch of rocks from all over the world, some carved elephants, and a few carved buddhas. That's about the extent of 'stuff that's not books'. Local is NOT boring. Learning about new people and places is half the fun.
Instruments are violin and piano. I'm sort-of-somewhat learning guitar. (that has done wonders for my vocabulary too..) My tastes? Your basic eccentric conservative, I think. I do like wildlife and natural history, but know absolutely nothing about mythical creatures (unless dust bunnies count as mythical?)
Historical interests go in context of whatever I'm doing at the moment. Right now, I'm fighting my way through an Italian book of 20th century Russian poems. Painful, but enlightening. I've learned a lot.
I live in the mountains, but love the ocean best of all. Romantic, yeah. Not like the harlequin novels though, more like moonlight and marshmallows.

They've been in N.California where I live in the off-holiday season and have been hanging out in wine country for a little too long, I fear. Rudolph has become such a snob because his nose is the exact shade of a certain late-harvest Merlot. They went on a tasting tour on Saturday (lord knows how they all fit in the limousine) and have not yet recovered from their hangovers.

Oooo, I have a Santa too! Is the wolverine a soft sculpture, sated from a recent meal, or a victim of a post-taxidermist workover? I like steel drum music, too; I can play it on my wind-up gramaphone, just to make it sound really interesting. I'm not much of a fan of any sports that you can find on television, except the Triple Crown and some occasional sumo wrestling, so you can save a bundle by not bothering with those Superbowl tickets. It's after harvest time here, so the ranch doesn't have much going on, but I can live with that.
