P.S. -- Has anyone ever written a Mudcat Secret Santee Shanty?

..............

well, in 2003 Santa Micca wrote one for me!

It's time to go now
Haul away that prezzie
Haul away that prezzie
It's Posting time

Get some stamps on her
Haul away that parcel
Haul away that parcel
It's Posting time

Here's the serious hints thread: BS: Hints for your Secret Santa--2006

And here's the silly hints thread: BS: Santa's Silly Secretary says hint here! (2006)

(I filled out both lists, myself, but you don't have to)

Louisey - it's all mixed up otherwise there would be no mystery.

Part of the fun, I think, is trying to work out,from the contents of the package, who sent it but Liz outs everybody in the New Year.

It's nice to get these for the day but, if they are going international and by surface mail, you need to allow a good six weeks for UK/USA and even longer for the Antipodies.

Brilliant - I've got mine! This is my first year and I have a couple of questions (which are probably obvious to everyone else - sorry!)

1. Is the person I'm sending to the same person that's sending to me, or is everyone mega-mixed-up?

2. Is it all top secret anonymous or do I sign the package?

3. Is there a posting date, or just in time for Xmas?

Taaaaa x

Once again, there were some inspired pairings... I'm just not sure of which Deity was directing... (although one suspects Kali, goddess of destruction)!

If I'd followed all the pickings exactly, then everyone in Australia would be sending to each other except Freda Underhill!

And to the person who requested not to have the same Santee they've had for the past two years? Guess who you would have got again!

Remember, folks:

If you've got your Santee, than somewhere out there in Mudcat land, some Santa's got you.

Have You filled out your hints list? It really is helpful. I mean, even with an army of elves and a trandimensional workshop, the real Santa needs tools and supplies. So you can imagine how hard it is for us mortal, assistant, Santas if we don't have anything to go on.

If you don't like filling out lists, than post a link to your favorite Mudcat thread (or three) -- one that you've participated in, or just had fun reading.

But give your Santa something...

Oh, and answering that question about tee-shirt size doesn't mean you'll get a tee-shirt. It just means you'll get something that's the right size -- might be a hat, or a sweater, or maybe an invisibility cloak. You never know...

No coal this year.... most of the pits are closed and we don't want to give Drax any more money than necessary.... so this year it's an animal byproduct.


Possibly suet.

Hmmm... I've been making the assumption that everyone else has received his/her Santee's name already... (after all, it's been a week since Liz said to watch for the names to arrive "next week")... Is it a faulty assumption? Am I being too literal in my interpretation of what Liz said?

Liz, you may remember that I sent you a PM on September 15th asking to play, and you said you'd see what you could do.

I'm still waiting for the name of my Santee.

I followed the rules! i signed up with plenty of time to spare!! I wanna play!!!! Please don't make me sing, "I'll have a blooooo Christmas without yooooooooo....."

right on, SECSYA LTS, it's far too much fun to just restrict it to the relatively few Mudcatters who have signed on.

Don't miss out, folks, only 84 days to Christmas! Or maybe 83 depending which side of the International Date Line I'm on. Or you're on. Or whatever.
