Once again, we will have a $40US value of the gift.

1) If you would like to sign up, just post in this thread and fill out the questionnaire. (you can PM/e-mail this if you prefer)

2) PM or e-mail me your real name and address

3) I will PM you your person and their information
4) Read your person's questionnaire and buy them a gift you think they would like
5) Ship your gift so it will arrive before December 24th
6) Post in this thread when you get your gift (I like to keep track); try and guess who it is from
7) Have a good time getting to know more about people here

I have to say this, as it has happened several times:

PLEASE, PLEASE, only sign up if you are sure you can participate.

One of my favorite Albums is "Adore from Smashing Pumpkins (I know that's Alternative, but I just wanted to give you an idea!)", I like Joanna Newsom and The Killers and The Delays, and There's this New Zealand Band I really like... Tame Impala. I used to like Foster The People until I read their lyrics... but their music is great and I would appreciate something like that.

It completes a set of Books I own (I have the English edition, but that is my childhood set). I would appreciate The House Arryn shirt in Large (While I'm really a medium, the HBO Shirts fit a bit too snug, a large would be an okay size for me). Clothbound classics would make a nice gift too :shrug:

EDIT: Oh the Dunk and Egg Graphic Novel would be nice.

Anything else you would like your SS to know about you: Idk, maybe some of the mindset, right: so you can get an idea of the person: like retro stuff. I like the Middle Ages. Stuff from antiques in pewter or non-glossy brass, stuff you find in a old yard sale, stuff from Vintage Shops and Thrift Stores which there aren't any where I live (but not derelict stuff that looks like: A ) your dog gnawed to it or your cat decided to scratch as a hobby, B ) You poured a gallon of bleach on it and decided to wipe it off before realizing it was too late or C ) You're good to go to a KISS Concert). Have a chance in a million? I always browse through dorky stuff from the Virgin Megastore aisle by the Cashiers. If I could own a Grandfather Clock I would. I prefer many little gifts when possible, slip in a peculiar Family-Friendly ornament for the tree,

c. living room? white, green, brown, birch, and other woods, and mostly orange details.

15. What style is your home decorated in? (i.e. ethnic, country, southwestern...etc) Modern, scandinavian and eclectic, I like the forties/fifties furniture and antiques mixed with new.
