I don't think this is the record but may be close - I'll try to take a look.

Now that the last person I was waiting on has been in touch the name pairing can begin. :)

Me three, even if I'm not taking part in the exchanges. Rumor has it the ShiShis are trying to confiscate bits of my pay checks to fund some surprises... not too surprising given they hit the bamboo nog early. Whether they succeed remains to be seen...

While we have a lull in the chatter here I'd just like to remind everyone to remember the shipping deadline, send me tracking numbers as soon as you ship and please let me know ASAP if there are any issues of any kind. I've not heard anything so far so I will assume that addresses were typed correctly.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding as I deal with work chaos here. Thank you too to those who volunteered to be an elf! :)

I'm waiting on BF, or at least my BF plan, to shop for my SS.  I do plan to go shopping for the OE this week, so she'll hopefully have her gift before she puts her tree up :).

Pretty much waiting on BF, but keeping my eye on the sales in the meantime, since I do have a rough shopping list assembled for my SS. :g_thumbri


For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

I will be completing shopping this weekend. One of the main things that I want to get for my SS is something that I don't know much about though, so I'm not sure if it goes on sale on BF or not. I think I'm just going to go ahead and get it now, just in case. One of the best parts about SS is learning about things to do or collect that you've never heard of before! :)

I agree. Getting to see everyone's info is eye opening and informative and it's a privilege (one that isn't taken lightly) to be your Chief Elf. :)
