  1. I'm in! So glad I didn't miss the deadline! Questionnaire: Favorite Type of Food (i.e. Italian, Mexican, McDonald's, Burger King, etc): Vegetarian. Favorite Scent (i.e. Fruity, Vanilla, Flowery, etc): I really like a lot of different scents. Favorites include vanilla, coconut, and fall smells, like cinnamon, apple. Favorite Hobby (i.e. Scrap booking, Photography, things you collect, etc): Gaming (primarily on PS4 - Still obsessed with Overwatch), Birding, Podcasts, Hiking, Board Games, sometimes crafty stuff, like paining (acrylics) etc. True Crime is a bit of a guilty pleasure. Favorite books or types (romance, true store, mystery or just one you would like): Non-Fiction mostly, and some fantasy of course. (As a book gift, I would love a philosophy book or academic book that has influenced you.) Favorite animal: Dogs, Birds, + any animal that's cute really! I really <3 animals. Favorite movies or types (romance, comedy or just a DVD/VHS you would like): Documentaries. James Bond. Marvel movies. I do sometimes like a good indie comedy (a la 'Don't think twice' or 'The Big Sick'). Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like: I mostly listen to spotify. I am a bit of a Eurovision geek. Do you collect anything? Branded beer glasses. Does blankets count? I just really love a good blanket. Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need? I can always make room for; make up (I do need new eye liner but any makeup is fun), pots and pans and other cooking stuff, candles, nice smelling lotions and such, earrings or other jewelry, board games (ideally 2 player games or co-op games for 4), scarfs and/or mittens, and blankets of course. I also enjoy a good t-shirt. Also, my dog is small (16 lbs) and likes to chew on things. What is your favorite: a. Color? Purple! b. Type of candy? Licorice! Especially salty licorice. c. Type of munchie? I love munching in general. Love myself some cheese, olives, potato chips. I am always looking for All-Dressed Chips or Pepper Jack Skinny Pop. d. Puzzle to do? I do crosswords in Swedish, but that's not very helpful, is it? I do love myself some piccross. And once in a while I'll do a jigsaw. Do you collect anything for Christmas? (i.e. certain types of ornaments, nativities, snowmen...etc.) . Nope If you were going to theme Christmas with just one word... what would it be? Cozy Big family Christmas with everyone down to 2nd cousins...or just immediate family in their jammies? Jammies! Favorite Christmas movie and why? Die Hard, because it's a masterpiece. I don't really associate any children's movie with Christmas. Religious or non-religious Christmas/Chaunaka/: Non-Religious Christmas (I'm from Sweden originally, so I usually celebrate Swedish style on December 24th. This year I will be spending Christmas with my in-laws in South Carolina though, so it will be more American.) If you could spend Christmas in any one of these places, which one would you choose and why: a. A beach on a tropical island just a few very close family or friends, be lazy and open presents and then have a non traditional dinner including Pina Coladas and BBQ shrimp, wearing swimsuits, Bermuda shorts and tank tops b. Tiny cabin in the woods, fire going, very rustic, warm and cozy with your close family and friends, wearing jeans and sweaters. c. Biltmore Estates, full regalia, all glitter and glitz, all your close family and friends, wearing black tie and velvet d. NYC Christmas, Park Avenue, last minute hustle and bustle, haute couture with a 4 course meal and champagne with 50 of your favorite people. Wearing, of course. the latest fashion favorites. Favorite Christmas music: Just the generic stuff What is your Christmas morning like" a. chaotic b. slow and relaxed c. organized, but fast paced d. "Christmas is HOW SOON???!!!!" e. all of the above. Name something you want but will never buy for yourself, just because you cannot see yourself being that flamboyant. I think last year I put LEGO here, and that's still true. I guess 'toys' in general, like fancy train sets, for instance, or an expensive but beautiful D.Va Statue. What sizes do you wear (optional answer if you would prefer to not have clothing) Ladies Large. What colors are in your home: Pretty neutral in general. Purples and dark blues in living room and black/white with some red in bedroom. What style is your home decorated in? (i.e. ethnic, country, southwestern...etc): IKEA chic Anything else your SS should know about you? I don't want any Funko Pops, please (I have a few that I really like, but am not looking to get more). Otherwise, I'm easy to please! I will love your gift, I know it. I will be away Nov 18th to Dec 2nd, so please try to send gift after that, to avoid issues with the post office. Sorry for the information overload above, but wanted to make it easy for you! Do you have any wish lists? Nope. ETA: In case you are stuck, a board game I would love is 7 wonders duel.
  2. I'm unfortunately out until April 11th - and then I will switch to having tons of time.
  3. Yes, but it would be a bit awkward to wear the same outfit as Mr. TC.
  4. Thanks for all the input! I really like the idea of a long sleeve dress! Thanks for the links, Zabz, I really like the first one especially (although I'm still a bit apprehensive when it comes to wearing black at weddings). I tend to just find flowy, summery dresses when I look... I will also be wearing a shawl, but usually they don't help as much as I would like and are often a bit of a pain to deal with.
  5. I really want to play, but I'll have a very busy period end of March and early April. Let me know if you want me to be a stand in, or if you want me to try to play anyways? If I'm playing I'm happy with any theme.
  6. I'm bumping this thread because I need ideas! I am going to a wedding on March 31st on Long Island, NY and although I own a bunch of dresses I am very, very worried about getting too cold. I tend to get cold easily and don't know what to wear that is 'fancy' enough for a wedding but will also keep me warm?
  7. I can change my avatar to indistinct fuzz in your honor, if you wish. ETA: I'm up for another round in about a week.
  8. BB said Soldier 76 tries in vain to teach Reaper how to reload. Bucky Drew http://i.imgur.com/2l9BMXJ.jpg Soldier 76 and Reaper (who inexplicably throws away his shotguns after each clip instead of reloading). I was super excited to see 2 x Overwatch chains. Helena did an excellent job drawing Mercy and Genji!
  9. Ah, short game makes me sad, I was just getting into the swing of this game! That said, I do have a sentence ready for next round.
  10. Can I have a bonus to describe please!
  11. Maybe while we wait for more people to sign up, we can create some beautiful Mandalas.
  12. Woop Woop! Winning!
  13. Yey! So glad you liked your gifts! Of course I know you like writing, if not I wouldn't have done my obligatory Santee stalking properly! Hope to read your novels one day! Thanks a lot for humoring me with all my silly questions as well. Just to check that customs didn't steal it - I also sent a Cthulhu inspired Mafia-like card game. Did you get it?
  14. Sign me up, buddy. Although I admit I have not YET read the entire first post. Please forgive me.
  15. We're still recuperating from all the Christmas food I suspect! However, I'm here now to say, THANK YOU EP! @Expecto Patronum I loved all three gifts. I got three small packages, all were jewelry that I suspect EP has carefully selected from my etsy favorites list. I tried to take photos but its hard to show how pretty they are so I'm just linking to photos from etsy to show. The fist package contained these cute golden leaf earrings. I actually owned a pair of these before but I lost them. Super happy to have a new pair!! The second package had these super adorable drop earrings. Finally, and maybe my favorite gift of everything I got this year, I got a Skyrim inspired 'soul gem' necklace. My 'gem' is a bit darker than the one pictured which means it can trap a human soul, so I'm pretty happy about that! This one also came with a Harry Potter clue which confirmed to me who my Santa was. Unfortunately one of the other sellers had printed EPs name, and my husband who saw the note called my Santa 'he' which had already narrowed it down a bit. Thank you again EP! Hope you are as happy with the gifts you got from your super secret (and slightly nervous) Santa as I am with mine!
