"My advice is to not let the boys in"

WhatAreYaKiddinMe?

I love boys. . . it's the lack of sensitivity, refinement, and intelligence that bothers me!

"...it's the lack of sensitivity, refinement, and intelligence that bothers me!"--eKat

I saw your email. You said Please. I went to sleep late, got up late. I would have taken this down as soon as I saw email as nice as you sent. She did say Please, ladies. I took it off, like Miss Carole, but the nice Xmas fantasy must have been just a dream of Xmas past with Liz in my mind. My late lady loved Xmas. She was as bawdy as they bawds with large bods ever seem to get, since it's sterotyping, insulting, demeaning, talking about large breasts in general to some VCs (I'm not calling ANYONE here that dreaded label, except zBrown) I'll stop.

I then saw your tempest-in-a-teapot blather and that last remark stung badly. Not sensitive? I fvcking cried I laughed so hard. Not fvcking refined? Malarkey! Un-intelligent? What?

So you think you pegged me, or just my actions. I certainly hope it was the latter. It's a rhetorical question. The answer shall remain a secret.

CHEESES OF NAZARETH,
long-time advertiser in Summit Magazine, has announced that they are cancelling their advertising with the periodical in response to widespread criticism of a photograph in the latest 1973 Summit Calendar Issue.
the photograph was accompanied by an advertising logo for a climbing ropes manufacturer.
"Apparently Christmas is becoming too commercialized for some Valley Christians," commented Royal Robbins, editor of the magazine. "It is not my place to condemn anyone for their actions. I am holier than that, anyway. I learned that lesson years ago."

I do apologize to anyone with hurt feelings. I sh#t wherever I go.

Pray, if you must, to the god on high.

I will celebrate mine.

Else where.

Maybe I'll just go to Tierra del Fuego to live or Ellesmere Island and crack stupid penguin jokes. Or to Petulant Place, where my ex lives.

So there.

Hey all,

Finally back now. I spent a week in Texas and then had a few days to catch up with work before I had time to come back to the Secret Santa project.

Over the next few days I will be responding to everyone's sign-up with a confirmation email. Give me a day or two to catch up and if you do not receive a confirmation email, please let me know.

Again, if you wish to sign up, email me:
supertoposanta (at) gmail (dot) com
Supertopo name
Real Name
Shipping Address
Special considerations like allergies, no alcohol, international shipping, etc...

This was an interesting thread to go back over and it seems I missed a lot. Here's a few comments:

Hand Crafted Items:
Hand crafted? You betcha
Count me in and hand crafted rocks!!
i've been able to do this, when at first i thought i'd lack, as i didn't understand that we could make stuff, too, or buy
This is always the best part of the Secret Santa, all the hand crafted and thoughtful items that make their way to people. We have seen some amazing and beautiful gifts in the past few years and any/all effort for hand crafted inspiration is appreciated!

Anonymous Santa's:
I'm in!! I still feel bad that my Santa last year never self-identified
I try to encourage anyone and everyone to participate either publicly or anonymously. You might be surprised how many people have concerns over their privacy and have messaged me before they committed. I do my best to verify as a Supertopo user but there are no guarantees. And yet, to my knowledge, we have not yet had a thief just a few mis-deliveries and late arrivals.

International Secret Santa:
I'm in if Santa doesn't mind having a trip across the Atlantic.
Supertopo secret santa has no borders! Welcome to the pool.
Every year we have had a few international users and I have not yet turned anyone down. Everyone is welcome to play and I can always find someone willing to ship internationally. So come on and join in!

Happy Holidays!
