I'm lucky, I know I have a Secret Santa because they have put me some (bad) verses on the threads, but some of my friends are getting VERY worried. Their Santa's don't seem to exist :-((((

If you ARE a Santa who hasn't admitted your existance PLEASE put them out of their misery. It's very easy. Log off, post to any of the Santa threads as Guest, ....... Secret Santa, submit the message and then log on again in your own name.

It's half the fun of being a Santa and it really makes it all worthwhile - what would YOU feel like if you thought no-one cared?

Anyway, I admit I'm a Secret Santa, and I admit I haven't gotten around to mailing my present. But at least I have it--it's sitting right on the table, waiting patiently to be mailed. Oh, yeah, first I have to wrap it. And then find the address. And then find a time to get to the post office. Damn, this ain't easy, let me tell you!

I'm bad. I had to open at least one of the packages - a tiny tea set. I mean a teeny tiny tea set in blue with yellow sunflowers. I love it. Funny though - one of my movers had the task of packing my tiny treasures. When he came across a tiny pumpkin tea set, he sighed and said "You're going to lose parts of this." He double wrapped it, taped it, and labelled it. Now I have two. I love it.

I haven't received my present so far but, as Jeri says, there are 24 days to go yet! I have a suspicion that it's coming from overseas, and if I'm right, it'll take a while to get to the States anyway. I can wait... but only because I have to!!! :^)

Hi, I'm Jeanene and I'm an SS member, too. In fact, some say my sanity has always been secret! *G*

I have posted a message (anonymously, of course) to my Santee in the
Hints" thread, and I've gotten a couple of hints there from my Santa (about whose identity I have a hunch).

I have not mailed my Santee's present yet, but there's still just enough time to get it delivered before Christmas if I send it in the next 3 days or so.

I think I already got and opened my Santa's present. (If not, maybe there's a real Santa!) Anyway there was a beautiful CD of old recordings, including "If I Can't Sell It, I'm Gonna Keep Sittin' On It," which was waiting for me when I got home the other day, and I didn't order it, so I wonder...
If I'd thought it was a present, I'd have saved the surprise for Christmas, but I'm gonna wrap it and open it and play it on Christmas.
Anyway, if it is from my SS, it corroborates my suspicions about his identity.

Its one of my favorites, and I figured that it has some songs that some of the folks that you sing to at retirement centers will probably remember fondly.

Send me a PM if you think you have ferreted out my true identity.

Well, my Santee's package went to the post office early this afternoon, and their elves have assured me it will be in my Santee's hands in 3 to 5 days, sent priority mail. If it wasn't sent Priority, it would take 3-5 WEEKS!

I'm identified not only on the mailing label, but inside the package as well.

By the way, waiting until the specific midwinter holiday of December 25th to open everything is unnecessary . . .

Nope, this is the first package I've sent you. In fact, being your SS has been fun, since I knew little about you or your music before I was picked. Now, I know a new carol, songs not to sing when I'm old, and something about what to do with servicemen when you are young. Though the last reminds me of a song about a student from Harvard, a train, and a tunnel. :-)

G.S.S

P.S. Look for some of my clues in the 10 obscure facts about you thread, which I just found out my dear brother in Kansas read to my mom, dad, little brother, nephews, sister in-laws and who knows who else at Thanksgiving dinner. My secret life has been revealed!

It seems that you have a better time than I while traveling, though while traveling from Chicago to D.C. on AMTRAK in 79' we got caught in the snow storm that caused the Mayor to lose the next election (Bilandic ?). It was fine in the Club car listening to someone pound out on the piano "The AMTRAK BLues" composed on the spot. Then the booze ran out and we spent the rest of the time in a roving poker game that moved from ladies bathroom to ladies bathroom, and sleeping in the luggage racks. We were only 24 hours late into D.C.

Thanks for the CD. I'm only saving it for Christmas because I'll be at my sis's house in CA that day and 80% of the presents are for her kids. We grown-ups gotta have a FEW presents to open, so we don't feel left out! (Besides, then I can share the music with my sister and the other folks.)

Two times I have been one, yes, a Secret Santa I've become...

On the fourth day of Christmas I speak these words to thee:

Four sent postcards, Three hints I've given, two times I have been one, yes, a Secret Santa I've become...

Five bad puns! Four sent postcards, Three hints I've given, two times I have been one, yes, a Secret Santa I've become...

What I meant was, there are too many (not really; especially if you like celebrating them all!!!) mid-winter holidays. (And we NEED mid-winter celebrations -- gotta bring the sun back!) Pick your favorite (which all seem to fall between the first of December and the 6th of January, although I'm rather fond of Robert Burns' Birthday on Jan. 25th myself -- but I certainly won't wait til then to open MY present!!!) and open up your prezzie within the celebration and ritual of your choice.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you. I've got a blue grass santa. Thanks santa, your pressie arrived today, [how did you know my shirt size?] No seriously though I got my package today, and it's salted away for Xmas. We sit up in bed on Xmas morning, drink bucks fizz, and open our goodies, so that's something else to look forward to. So I hope your significant other wont mind, but I'll be in bed thinking of you, Mary Christmas.
Giok

Linn: Ah! I get it now. Agreed that there is a glut of holidays this time of year; for me it's accentuated (I won't say "aggravated") by my father's birthday and my niece's birthday. When my mother was living, we also had my parents' anniversary to celebrate! I'll still pick Christmas Day as the day to open any presents I receive from Santa, be (s)he Secret or not!

Depends which ocean and where from, I guess. But OzCats tend to be very patient when waiting for mail from over the pond. 2 weeks is usually a miracle, 3 is normal. 3 may be a miracle in December, but that probably doesn't apply to you, dear SS, because you posted it so early.

To InterantT Santa. To make ascii pictures work you must use the pre and /pre commands to set the text in fixed width. It looks like you have added Rudolf. I Would love to see it unjumbled.

Hey Santa - how's it goin', eh ? What's wrong with yer moose, buddy? Reminds me of that song- "Green Eyes Crying in The Reindeer". How'd you do that artwork- I'm almost afraid to ascii. I gotta tell you, Santa, even with the preponderance of clues you've peppered in my path, I'm no closer to ferreting out your true identity. Kudos to you! You are indeed the Supreme Santa of subterfuge, the sublimely nefarious Saint Nick of namelessness, the Pere Noel de perfectione, the Claus that refreshes.
Looking forward to continued communication,

Genie! Whew! I was beginning to give up on your prognastic prowess. You are on the right coast, but alas I've never been a Sea Captain, nor had a one legged man chase me across the country (but look out for my Evil Twin. He appears in the middle of the night in the strangest places by following the sound of caterwalling 'catters).

I have sung a shanty or two, and wondered about a Minch.

I've cried for help as I searched for what I lost but no one could hear me.

Where I live folkies are everywhere. Call it luck or fortune, but we even have to shut the bathroom shades to avoid 'catters stares.

My own secret santa still hasn't left a clue, but my identity will become apparent when you get your last gift. It's in the mail tomorrow if we don't get caught be freezing rain.

Actually, I did format both those "drawings" properly when I posted them, and they showed up fine both in the preview and right afterwards when I checked the thread.
The next day, on a different computer (same format) the first post appeared out of alignment, so I configured and posted the second one.
That night, the first post continued to appear screwed up but the second one looked fine (in preview and in the forum).

The next day the FIRST one looked fine again, but the SECOND one was out of alignment! Gotta be those *%!*@! elves!

Hi Genie:

Well your presents are on the way from the east. Nothing major, but at least I spent a lot of time thinking about them. All will be revealed when they arrive. Here's some help deciphering my clues:

I'm a twin
I had a broken foot about 2 years ago
I've changed my Mudcat name
I love 20's and 30's music and have contributed a lot to threads
   of a certain "roots" genre
We have a dog, cat, and a rabbit as pets
   (If you look hard enough you might find a picture of our rabbit)
I play instruments that some think are strange
A mudcatter lives behind me and can see into our
   bathroom window from their porch
There are A LOT of mudcatters and folkies where I live
I've sung a shanty or two too.
My first registered post in Mudcat was in early 1999
(though I participated as a guest in 1998)

Let me know when the package arrives, and what you think about it.

Your S.S.

Nobody else can see this present, of course. ;-) It's just for you!

Santa, my not having identified you yet has more to do with my not having had time to search thru the thread you've alluded to than with anything else. I've been trying to connect your clues with Mudcatters that I already 'know,' and so far, I've been able to eliminate all the ones I can think of. Since it's pretty clear you and I had not communicated much (if at all) before our SS assignments, I've just gotta go through those threads. I probably won't be able to do it until the week of Christmas, but rest assured, I will.

Meanwhile, don't make it too easy for me.

(I was trying to make that "double" thing harder, since I don't know of any Mudcats who are twins. But you just wait. I will.)

Genie

PS,
Gotta go buy someone an Eddie Rabbit CD and a recording of the Chicken Dance for Christmas.

Okay, so maybe you DO know who I am, but I'll keep it secret and just let you guess.

You have a package on the way on Monday and it comes from very close by so I expect it will arrive before Christmas. It is not what I intended but I think you'll be happy.

When the spring comes, actually late spring, I will send you what I think you will enjoy even more. I cannot say why I have to wait this long, but you will also get a Christmas present in May or June as well.

Merry Christmas and enjoy the first package!!!!!
