Hello Again Everyone.

To be honest, this year I have been slacking. Ostensibly I will whine about work and how busy I am but I really should have stayed on top of confirmations and answering questions. Sorry about that.

As of this moment, everyone who has signed up should have a confirmation email sent to them.

The number of sign ups is down this year so I encourage everyone who hasn't signed up to get on it! There are only 5 days left to sign up!!!!

I was curious about the logistics, o illustrious elf! When you match givers and receivers, do you pair them, or is it some more complicated system? That is, do simply match A+B, C+D, and so on, with A giving to B and B giving to A? Or is it A gives to C, C gives to D, D gives to A, etc etc?

You nailed it with your second guess of: A gives to C, C gives to D, D gives to A, etc etc?

I assign everyone a # based on when they signed up. Then those numbers I enter into a random number generator to do the matching. I then massage it a little bit to accommodate special requests for privacy, security, international shipping, etc... I NEVER allow someone to choose their recipient for example but they can tell me who they do not want to be matched with because of privacy concerns.

This year we are at about 30 participants. Last year we were in the mid 50's if I recall correctly.

4 days left to sign up. Get to it!

Confirmed, and excited for giving and spreading holiday cheer.

As for receiving, I want a Yosemite hammer, an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle, and a pony.

and a pony.

If you get Locker, you may need to settle for a sheep or a butt plug...

I'm not in, but if anyone is interested - here's my American-Canadian Christmas gift plan.

This is what I have to give:

 Lynn Hill. Ma Vie a la Verticale, Editions Guerin. Awesome photos, much better than in the original English version. Fine condition.

 Patrick Edlinger and Gerard Kosicki. Rock Games. Escalades Aux USA. Arthaud. Very good/Very good+ condition.

 "Multe"-berry jam, best Norwegian quality, Nora hjemmlaget multesyltet°y.

 One freely chosen CD with Norwegian or Swedish music.

If you are interested - send me an e-mail no later than Friday 30.11. I will not answer the e-mail unless you are one of the winners in which case I will need your name and address. I will draw randomly. Everybody has got a chance.

Sign up - it is a great way to connect and send some Christmas cheer. How many of our own relatives have no idea what we would really find as a fun gift? Its fun to look at the posts from your person and try to figure out what to give.....
