DreamSongs

Secret Santa X...Gift are arriving from all over the World!

Recommended Posts

Bad news gang...we lost the thread for this year in the board reboot.  All names and addresses will need to PM'd to me so I can do the final match up...which was going to be tonight <_<

So, I guess we start from scratch.  You can either write a paragraph about yourself and likes/dislikes or copy and paste a questionnaire.

The Santa's that I have listed from memory are:

Lany

Turniqui-Calima

Rocksniffer

Madame Zabsie

Ded as Ned

Littlefingers in the Air

Koba

Nox Irradiata

Theda Baratheon

Lady Q

KiDisaster

Arya Kiddin'

DreamSongs

PMG

Helena

LilyValley

Mcbigsky

Adz of CCAA

CorwinusJ

Lady Olenna

TheLegend of Cora

King Tyrion I

Fragile Bird

Anubiel

If I missed you or placed you on the list erroneously, let me know.

Update 11/15/15:  I count 24 Santas, including myself.  PMs are being sent out!  If you haven't received a name and an address within 24 hours (because the board is being wonky tonight) then you've been naughty and haven't sent me one!

Or the board's been replaced again!

Update 11/26/15:  We remain at 24 Santas.  WillWork4NinjaPowers hasn't been on the board since September and was replaced by Lady Q.  Let's hope everything is OK with our missing NinjaSanta!  I also want to thank the many people that offered to double up the holiday cheer :)

Dear Secret Santa,

If you want to give me Funkos, I'd like The Mountain or Oberyn or even Ramsay. The later is my favorite bastard.

I don't have either any Dark Horse or Three Zero figurines yet.

 

I currently own these Funkos: normal Tyrion, Battle axe Tyrion, Pop Cultcha's exclusive Tyrion, Tywin w/silver and w/golden armor, Hot Topic exclusive Bloody Brienne, Cersei, Jaime V.1 and V.2, The Hound, Joffers

 

I currently own these Mystery Minis: Joffrey In Memoriam, Joffrey normal, Tyrion, In Memoriam Tywin

 

I would love those Mystery Minis: Tyrion V.2, Oberyn, Jaime (both editions)

 

And of course „A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms“ would be really great! I have the graphic novels though.

Favorite Candy (things that won't melt or go bad in mail) : nuts, dried fruits, chocolates, I saw someone say Turkish nougats…hhhmmmm sounds good…but also hard candies especially ones that are unique to your local region and caramels….love ‘em.
Favorite Scent (i.e. Fruity, Vanilla, Flowery, etc): not much for certain strong chemical smells, but do enjoy earthy incense on occasion.

Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need? Need…no, not really. I do enjoy teas and other beverages that are specific to a region.

anything else you would like your SS to know about you: I drink and smoke and enjoy trying new things…i am a sucker for anything local…even street maps and coastline maps which might seem boring to you will be interesting to me…I can be happy with a bag of sand/shells/ and rocks from an place…I have samples from everywhere I have ever been. A bottle of good vodka or sake is something I also enjoy. And I do not yet have the hedge knight books…

I have only included the parts of this that are relevant to me and don’t repeat the questions above

Questionnaire 2
2. What is your favorite: Type of munchie? Nuts, chips/crisps, pretzels.

Puzzle to do? Logic puzzles and jigsaws.
3. Do you collect anything for Christmas? (i.e. certain types of ornaments, nativities, snowmen...etc.) not me so much but Number One niece – SWMBO – loves all that kind of stuff, particularly if it is local to your area and handmade if not too expensive…so it would work for me as well.

6. Big family Christmas with everyone down to 2nd cousins...or just immediate family in their jammies? my choice just me and the little nieces opening presents and hanging out, playing games or camping….but at least every other year I must attend the “Gathering” and I wish it was limited to just second cousins…I have a LARGE family and anyone who can claim even a drop of blood comes out and reminds me why I live in a different state.

Name something you want but will never buy for yourself, just because you cannot see yourself being that flamboyant. Hahahahah I am willing to try anything…

A little about me:

I'm over 18, live in Hawaii (but originally from North Carolina and a Southern girl at heart), and am willing to ship internationally. Favorite color is purple and I'm a huge nerd (particularly of the Star Wars variety). :D  Favorite animals are pandas and octopussies octopi.  I love SciFi and Fantasy movies and "bad" TV.  I'm also into cooking/grilling, whiskey, and the ocean.

I'm pretty easy to please and I'm sure I'll love anything I get. My Santa last year was awesome! :grouphug:   Something local from wherever you are would be really cool.

From an unidentified participant:

I'm a second year law student. I enjoy going for walks while listening to music (film/tv soundtracks mostly, I have a thing for instrumental music) and lately I've found myself enjoying a walk through Regent's Park in the cold, then going to get a coffee and read my book while I warm up again.

I'm very much into reading, and would much rather read a book than watch TV or a film. Favourite author is Robin Hobb, though I've read more or less all of her stuff as Hobb, and am in the process of working through her Lindholm stuff now (read The Reindeer People and Alien Earth). Other than Hobb I like far too many authors to mention them all. I'll also read most any genre, though my favourites are Fantasy, Historical Fiction and certain classics (Pretty much anything Dickens or Austen. Also come to greatly appreciate E.M Foster this year after reading Howard's End and The Longest Journey). I'm always on the lookout for something new though.

Film and TV I'll watch a huge range of stuff, from old British comedy (Are You Being Served?; Fawlty Towers; Carry On...; Keeping Up Appearances) to gothic drama horror ala Penny Dreadful (which I'm far too obsessed with, but there you go. Also a big James Bond fan, having grown up with them as background noise throughout my childhood (Mam was always watching them). 

Home decoration I don't really have much, nor can I use much - I'm in student accommodation and there are fairly strict rules regarding putting stuff on walls etc. 

Favourite colours are purple, green, silver, and blue.

Not religious.

I have (had I guess) a dog, who lives with my parents. I'm one of those people who will refer to their pet as their baby...

I'm very close with all of my family - a Christmas without a get together of the extended family (admittedly for me this is only me, mam, dad, 2 grandmothers, aunt you and uncle) would just feel wrong to me.

i'm a big sentimentalist when it comes to keeping things. Like, train tickets, if I have gone to visit a friend I've not seen in years. Keep those. Napkins from restaurants if I had a particularly great time. Confetti and place cards from party tables, letters people send me, birthday and Christmas cards...I think you get the idea

That's about all really. Just know,whoever you are, I'm easily pleased and will appreciate anything I receive. Send me a paper clip and I'll buy myself a frame and stand it on my desk

I guess we're back to the good old fashioned questionnaire. I'm just gonna use the first part plus I've added some general info on the bottom.
 
Are you over 18? Yes. I'm 30.
Are you willing to ship internationally? Yes.
Favorite Type of Food (i.e. Italian, Mexican, McDonald's, Burger King, etc): Vegetarian.
Favorite Candy (things that won't melt or go bad in mail) : I love candy of almost all kinds. Salty Licorice is a favorite.
Favorite Scent (i.e. Fruity, Vanilla, Flowery, etc): Vanilla/Coconut.
Favorite Hobby (i.e. Scrap booking, Photography, things you collect, etc): Video Games (but I get most video games digitally). I do some birding and scuba diving. I like to paint, draw, sew, bake etc., but don't do it as much as I would like.
Favorite books or types (romance, true store, mystery or just one you would like): Lighthearted Non-Fiction and Fantasy.
Favorite animal: Dogs, Blue Jays, Sharks
Favorite movies or types (romance, comedy or just a DVD/VHS you would like): The only movie I would be interested in owning would be anything Monty Python (I already have Life of Brian).
Favorite Color : Purple
Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like: Not really
Do you collect anything? Not a collection per se - but I have a lot of blankets because I can never resist a cozy blanket.

Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need? Good 2-person board games are always appreciated.

Anything else you would like your SS to know about you:

I'm easy to please and will like anything that has your personal touch to it. I am always happy with scarfs, lotions, crafty stuff, t-shirts (ladies size M-L), earrings, etc. etc. Any geeky stuff is awesome.

Stuff I like: Borderlands, Elder Scrolls, Portal, Minecraft, Monty Python, Asoiaf, LoTR, Marvel, James Bond.

Christmas this year will be just me and the husband in New York. So quiet and cozy with lots of Swedish style food (I grew up in Sweden). We usually don't go all out with decorations, but I think it's time to add more to our collection of Christmas stuff, so anything like that would be fun as well.

Finally, local flavor is always appreciated.
