I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

Anything else you would like your SS to know about you I like scrunchies.
Are you allergic to anything or have anything in particular you prefer NOT to get (like food, hair stuff, lotion, etc): I'm allergic to peanuts and dairy - not too much else

Signature required doesn't bother me - I'm here in Georgia and pretty easy to find online - my nick is unique.
So I can't find what my curly likes. Can someone post a link to the 2011 list? Hard to find on this app from my phone.... Tx
I was born in January, I'm an Aquarius. I have no theme. I have movie posters and original art work from new orleans on my walls. I have katana's displayed and stuffed animals on my bed and table. my color theme for the moment is purple. my bathroom still have body parts on the floor.


Any likes? Such a broad question, LOL...
I like jewellry, scarves, accessories, fashion. I like good teas. I like interesting items from other cultures/locations/countries. I like bold, bright colours and statement pieces.

Or dislikes? LOL, couldn't help but think that I'm gonna dislike it if I get a package on Tuesday or Wednesday this week... I don't even start thinking Christmas till Advent starts, which is Dec 2, and don't think presents till a little bit after that. To me, presents should come close to Christmas. So you don't need to rush on sending mine... you can buy it whenever you want if there's sales now but there's no brownie points for being the first one to send it out!

I don't like most knick-knacky things or decorations or that type of stuff asI am pretty particular about them. (Exceptions for interesting artifacts from other places as above.)

I also hate stuff that is supposed to be aimed at "chicks" like romantic comedies and chick lit.

Don't like candles or incense or burning oils or heavily scented items or sprays.

Can't drink coffee.

Favorite Type of Food (i.e. Italian, Mexican, McDonald’s, Burger King, etc) :

So many! Not fast food. I like interesting "ethnic" foods, and I am a vegetarian. I like Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Thai, Korean, Caribbean, Ethiopian, Indian, Pakistani, Laotian, Tibetan, El Salvadorean, etc. etc. etc. I like spicy foods!

Favorite Candy (things that won’t melt or go bad in mail) :

Hmmm, I try to limit candy and I mostly like chocolate anyway. I do love black licorice, especially the health food store kind, or a splurge on licorice allsorts.

Favorite Scent (i.e. Fruity, Vanilla, Flowery, etc):

Coconut is the winner - that's my signature scent. Vanilla is nice too. Cinnamon. Or peppermint. Mango or other rich exotic fruits are sometimes OK but I don't like the super-fruity smells. Lemon is nice and fresh.

Favorite Hobby (i.e. Scrap booking, Photography, things you collect, etc):

I like photography and would like to be more organized and do some kind of scrapbooks but never actually do. Really my only "hobbies" are writing and reading and I'm not sure if my music is a "hobby." I guess cooking and sewing if I have time for them.

Favorite books or types (romance, true store, mystery or just one you would like):

I like novels. The type I enjoy are those that explore historical or social issues. Colonialism and its aftermath is my favourite thing to read about. I also enjoy non-fiction that looks creatively at those issues. There's nothing specific I had in mind. Oh wait, I was reading recently about some books by Ken McGoogan about Arctic exploration and Inuit peoples that looked fascinating. On a completely different note, I also like fashion workbooks/how-tos.

Favorite animal:

Lions.

Favorite movies or types (romance, comedy or just a DVD/VHS you would like):

I like dramas and meaty things - stories that again engage with interesting social questions. I like good quality comedy too. I've been wanting to see Black Swan.

Favorite Color :

Red, with pink a runner-up.

Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like:

I like opera, world music, Latin and Caribbean music, jazz, and SOME hip-hop / R & B.
I mostly download the stuff I want. I would however like to have Esperanza Spalding on disc.

Do you collect anything?

No, not really.

Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need?

Anything I want or need is expensive, LOL! (just kidding... sort of...)

Do you wear accessories/jewelry?

Yes, I do, and I have pierced ears. But for earrings, I am sensitive to anything but gold and silver.

Anything else you would like your SS to know about you:

I'm being detailed here but really, I've done this a couple of times before and I was thrilled to see what great ideas my SS came up with - I was totally happy with everything and I'm not just saying that. It really is the thought that counts.


Are you allergic to anything or have anything in particular you prefer NOT to get (like food, hair stuff, lotion, etc):

My allergies are peanuts and heavy scents and my skin is very particular as to what goes on it. I don't mind getting hair stuff if it's something that will work for me. If someone wants to send me more Elucence conditioner, I would love that!


ALSO! If for some reason you prefer your secret curly NOT do a signature required option at delivery or any other special requests please let us know.

No issues with that - whatever gives the SS the most security.

ETA: My add on questions:
What month is your birthday?

December

What color(s)/theme is your bathroom and bedroom?

We have 2 bathrooms that I use, but the one that is MINE has a tropical theme (bamboo, gauze, tropical plants etc.) and the colours are brown/green/white. The other one is white and beige and really simple.

Bedroom is currently just white but I am wanting/planning to add some navy and gold accents - either that or red and gold but am leaning to navy as blue seems more calming for sleep.

Why yes I stole it from last year's list!

I am a single mom to a very busy 16 month old girl named Kennedy.

LIKES:

-anything from your part of the country
-wild nail polish for my toe nails
-handmade stuff
-fairies
-purple
-butterflies
-citrus scents, orange is the best

Kennedy's Likes:

-ducks
-chocolate
-books

DISLIKES:

-coffee, tea, floral scents

COLLECTIONS:

I have started a Christmas ornament collection for Kennedy. I collect fairies.

ALLERGIES:

Please do not send lotions or bath stuff. I have very sensitive skin and an allergy to perfume. I'm also allergic to nickel, so while I love earrings I can only wear real gold.

OTHER

I have 5 cats and a toddler so knick knack stuff and candles are pretty much useless for me, though I do have a place to put my fairies where they can't get broken. I hate coffee with a passion. I like jewellery but there's that whole toddler thing again.

My birthday is in February, birthstone is Amethyst. Kennedy is July, birthstone is Ruby.

I have been doing this swap for years and some of the best gifts have been local to your area products and handmade stuff. Two years ago I got a handmade sign with butterflies on it that I used as inspiration for my daughter's nursery. I still have a piece of art that was given to me many years ago, my Santa bought it from a local artist. Last year Kennedy got an ornament with her name on it and that made me cry.
mcheryce- Keep checking back for about week, some of the curlies (like myself) are slow to post their lists.
Mcheryce, the first post in this thread has links to the last 2 years. They should have links to previous years as well.

Favorite animal: wolves, dogs, my dog Jasper

Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like: (can't think of anything right now, I'll update if I think of anything) But I'll put types: New Age, smooth jazz, rock, reggae.... (anything but country/western or rap)

Do you collect anything? Not anymore. I don't have room for any more knick-knacks! Well, maybe C'mas decos are ok, like snowmen.

Good nail polish (3+free) like Zoya, China Glaze, OPI, Nubar; good top/base coats too.

Anything else you would like your SS to know about you: Married with one teen son and a dog. We celebrate Christmas. We love snowmen. Anything regional or special to you or your area would be nice.

Prefer not to get: please no candles (I have tons to burn through, and more holders than I can use), no body wash (unless it's sulfate-free)

As always, anything my SC chooses will be special and greatly appreciated. I have never gotten anything I didn't love so far.

no sig req'd, but delivery confirmation is good!

*** I'll modify if I think of anything else.

I think we should amend future lists to include whether or not our curlies celebrate Christmas.
I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.
