Heya, if you are participating in my Winter Avarice Gift Exchange (of Certain Doom), please drop a comment here to say if you have received a gift or not. I know [livejournal.com profile] zianuray got hers, and I strongly suspect that [livejournal.com profile] lexpendragon got his, but otherwise, am not sure.

Remember, folks, the deadline to send is er... Sunday.

Yay, all the emails for the Gift Exchange just went out (except the one to [livejournal.com profile] opaljax, whose email is no good and should send me her new address). If you sent me info and didn't just get a note about who to send a gift to, email me and let me know.

Thanks!

Also, for those of you wanting to do the Gift Exchange, I haven't forgotten about you. Look for that email tonight.

Ahem. Also, if you want to get in on the Winter Avarice Gift Exchange 2.0, please send me an email by Wednesday. Details are in this post. If you'd rather reply to the post (or this post, or whatever) than email, that is also okay.

See, if I get all the responses by Wednesday, then I can have people matched and info sent back out by Thursday, so that all you local types can potentially come and purchase your exchange gift at the Winter Bazaar on Saturday. Go-go cross-marketing. I are smart.

It was fun enough last year -- wanna do it again?

Here's how it works: You read the rules here. You send an email to me (jwncrow@hotmail.com), answering the questions at the bottom of the post. I send your information to somebody else. They buy you a gift. I give you some third person's information, you buy them a gift. I keep track of who's giving gifts to whom. All gifts are delivered on or before New Year's Eve. People who don't manage this get blacklisted from future gift exchanges and mocked savagely. Everybody gets stuff and is happy.

So, who's in? Send me a note, telling me these things:

- What name should your packages come to?
- What address should you packages come to?
- What winter holidays do you celebrate (in case someone should want to be, you know, timely)?
- Got any wishlists we could look at? How might we find them?
- What are your favorite colors?
- What sorts of things do you like to recieve? (Hobbies, interests, collections, etc.)
- Favorite foods?
- Any food, scent or other allergies we should be aware of?
- Clothing sizes (for the sorts of clothing you would like to receive -- if you're not ok with getting clothes, or don't want to share that information, you can skip this part.)?
- What else should people know about you in order to shop for you successfully?

OK, most people seem to have gotten their gifts, but I need to hear from a few more folks.

If you're on this list, I need to know whether or not you've receieved anything:
[livejournal.com profile] 8elements
[livejournal.com profile] druidevo
[livejournal.com profile] zianuray
[livejournal.com profile] ottercat
[livejournal.com profile] zylch


[livejournal.com profile] chaosdruid, and [livejournal.com profile] greektoomey, I know you haven't gotten yours yet, but have followed up with your people already.

Thanks! There will be another post about potentially doing a more involved version of this game sometime later.

Hey everybody--

This should be the sort of wind-up week for the gift exchange, so please give your gift before Sunday if you haven't done so already.

For administrative porpoises (and because I am the Queen of the Nosy People), please comment and tell me what you got! (Sooper Sekrit Other Reason: If you haven't gotten anything yet, I can poke your Santa if necessessessseseessesary. I can never spell that word right.)

This is actually a reply to [livejournal.com profile] 8elements, but LJ ate her comment, and it seems like the sort of thing people might generally want to know, so here goes.

When you send your gift to your recipient, you can tell them who it's from. We talked about doing a secret-pal sort of thing, which we may do later, but this isn't it. Go ahead and tell them who you are if you want.

OK kids. All the gift exchange notices have gone out. If you sent me your stats and did not get an email from me today, let me know, and I will re-send to you.

I'm not in. I couldn't think of a reasonable way to fairly participate, so I recused myself. I think that a better solution is that I will send gifts to anybody I damn well want to (since I have a ton of addresses now) and anybody that wants to send me a gift, also can. So there.

And now, curry.

If you want to get in on the gift exchange, please send me a note today with information as contained in this post. (Unless you are the Big Kitty, in which case I know you are in a car still, and can send me something later.)

So far, there are about 10 people in.
