Favorite colors: cobolt blue, hunter green, orange, brown, crimson red

Collections: I collect science fiction and fantasy books, gemstones and minerals, stuffed moose animals

Allergies: No serious ones. I can't eat bananas, but I very much doubt someone is going to send me a bunch of bananas in the mail.

Lists of interests: Reading and writing science fiction and fantasy; learning about Astronomy/Physics; Ancient History (especially the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern areas of the world) I love British shows and humor. Love science fiction and fantasy shows and movies; jewelry making (beading/stringing, wirework, etc.)

Do you like receiving homemade gifts? Love homemade gifts.

What do you think of the ever popular "I'd like something from your town" idea?: I'd love to have something from someone's town.

If you've done the exchange before did you love the experience. This will be my second year participating. Despite my apprehension and my paran.... er... shyness, I had a fabulous time putting together the gifts I sent and receiving the gifts.

Those are the basics. Hope this helps.

Does this mean you can't eat anything containing bananas, or only fresh bananas?

It's pretty much fresh bananas. I seem to be okay with foods containing cooked bananas.

I don't have any favorite colors or allergies. [Smile]

This is my third year in the exchange, and enjoy it greatly. I'm not too picky when it comes to gifts, but something quirky is good.

I am not really in need of any more pink sequined nipple tassels, though. I wear them infrequently enough that they're holding up quite well since last December. [Big Grin]

Um, you know, larisse, I could send you some fresh finger bananas. They're really really sweet. [Smile] And they're, oh, two to four inches long, so really cute, too. [Big Grin]

Well, I thought I'd wait until the deadline like I did for signing up.

Favorite colors: grey, blue, dark green, "manly colors", etc...

Collections: I collect gemstones/minerals, chess boards, and books.

allergies: None whatsoever!

Lists of interests: engineering/hard science, geology, reading, European history, basically learning in general

Do you like receiving homemade gifts? Definitely

What do you think of the ever popular "I'd like something from your town" idea?: Works for me

If you've done the exchange before did you love the experience. Yes I've done it and if I didn't like it I wouldn't be doing it again.

Nah, they'd get confiscated by the fruit-sniffing dog people coming in. [Razz]

Must post here by the 16th to play
I'm sorry, I just couldn't.

Assuming I'm not out of the game, I like primary colors and don't much care for pastels. I'm neutral on earth-tones (hah!).

I'm allergic to most types of gifty hygiene products and to anything designed to be scented--especially candles.

I collect all things Disney, and have a pretty extensive science fiction memorabilia and toy collection. I love books. I also like receiving local flavor gifts.

Hi, I'm new here and haven't had a lot of time for posting.

My favorite colors: just about all of them, as long as they're bright. Not big on dark browns, blacks or grays.

Interests: Music, older sci-fi, art (drawings and paintings), some current TV (House) and some older British comedies (Vicar of Dibley, The Young Ones). I also like the old Beauty and the Beast TV series (CBS, with Vincent and Catherine).

Homemade gifts are okay, but no food. No allergies, just trying not to overeat this year.

Local gifts are okay, but not necessary. Novelty gifts are neat, as long as they're not crude (toilet humor, whoopee cushions, fake vomit or poop, etc.). For example, one year I gave my adult brothers Bilz Boxes for Christmas:

http://www.amazon.com/Bilz-Box/dp/B000068UEA/sr=8-3/qid=1164104092/ref=pd_bbs_sr_3/102-0248470-2533700?ie=UTF8&s=office-products

They were a big hit. One brother spent 45 minutes trying to solve the puzzle, the other had his money out in 30 seconds. (I'm not asking for this, just using it as an example, and no, it doesn't come with money, you have to supply that! [Wink] )

So anything cute or unusual would be fine.

Oh, and I like trivia books and motivational stuff too.

And since this is my first gift exchange, could the deadlines be posted again? I need to know how much time I have.

Thanks,

SS

The original thread is no longer stickied, so I need to ask again: what's the mailing deadline for presents?

I think it is the 10th, but you can look for the thread. It doesn't have to be stickied to find it guys. I'll bump it when I have a minute.

I try to bump it and keep it on the first page. If there really was anywhere you could ship from, I allow the 10th, you just can't.

We have been shopified today. The Ketchup Family's three gifts are ready to go-- recipients will be finding surprises in the mail shortly. [Cool]

Well, if any of this year's participants are in Israel, their post offices are open Sundays. [Wink]

The mailing deadline for international packages leaving Australia is this Friday.

I'm not going to be able to mail mine until Monday....

Oooh, the tension! Will it get there?!

(Yes, it should. Friday is just the last day Australia Post will gaurentee pre-Christmas delivery. But three weeks should be enough.)

There.
I sent mine. I hoped it is liked... And that it is not worn out. I didn't know it would be so hard to find one of these, I guess it's out of print or rare or something.
