Any likes? See below
Or dislikes?...... (I'll edit this over time).
Favorite Type of Food (i.e. Italian, Mexican, McDonald’s, Burger King, etc) : Italian, Mexican, Korean, Indian (love a good chai), and I'm picky about my Japanese.
Favorite Candy (things that won’t melt or go bad in mail) :
Favorite Scent (i.e. Fruity, Vanilla, Flowery, etc): Fruity! Definitely fruity. Mango, Grapefruit; anything fruity.
Favorite Hobby (i.e. Scrap booking, Photography, things you collect, etc): I love movies, and a good book (sadly, I do not have time to read right now). Sleeping (although I sincerely doubt the latter will help)
Favorite books or types (romance, true store, mystery or just one you would like): I really like YA fantasy books. Books like Fablehaven and the Bartemaeus Trilogy are among my favourites. I rarely read non-fiction, but my lecturer has been recommending "Confessions of an Economic Hitman" for some time now, so maybe that one.
Favorite animal: None in particular. Wait...no, monkeys are awesome.
Favorite movies or types (romance, comedy or just a DVD/VHS you would like): Old movies are great. Like from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
Favorite Color : None.
Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like: I just listen to the radio. No favs.
Do you collect anything? Starting collecting nail polishes recently.
Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need? This or this or just about any nail polish colour under the sun would be good. This is a good place to start, or here. or simply some nail tape would be okay. As for shirts, I'm about a medium.
Do you wear accessories/jewelry? Yes. Silver only, my ears are pierced. I love hoops, pretty much never wear rings or bracelets.
Anything else you would like your SS to know about you: Nothing comes to mind right now.
Are you allergic to anything or have anything in particular you prefer NOT to get (like food, hair stuff, lotion, etc): Food stuff might be really hard to send because it (1) Will probably never make it to me- thanks customs and (2) Will probably have melted or expired by the time it gets to me (no joke). I started locking my hair so hair stuff might be a bit tricky. As for nail polishes, I'm very much on a matte/suede/velvet kick since they are so rare here, I would love any colour in those finishes. I'm also a bit partial to Revlon because they tend to last the longest (for me).

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 siggy required.
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.

I collected cows for years, rou! Just sold all but a couple of them a few years ago. : )

Jeepy's likes/dislikes for 2012. Not really much different than any other year. : )

Likes: I love things that are made locally. I love lotions and potions and hair stuff and beauty stuff and nail polish. I love scented candles and soaps and oils and bath stuff.

Dislikes: I'm not fond of flowery scents or frilly fancy things. I live a very casual life.

Favorite Type of Food: I love food, homemade or out of a can. I will try anything, no matter how odd or unusual. Again, local is great - things like local honey, candy, or something your area is known for. I love food from any area of the world. I love spicy, flavorful things. I love to try different kinds of teas and hot chocolate. I love to cook so anything like dried herbs or flavorings is always pleasing.

Favorite Candy: Atomic fireballs, really good caramel, very dark chocolate (70% or higher cacao) from different countries especially ones with unusual flavors.

Favorite Scent: Again with the food - vanilla, chocolate, lemon, orange, mint, sugar, spice.

Favorite Hobby: Gardening/landscaping, the beach, hiking in the woods, cooking, reading, nature.

Favorite books or types: I love books but don't read many novels anymore (too many migraines). I like 'coffee table books'. I really love magazines. Just single issues of any magazine or your local newspaper would be great!

Favorite animal: Cats.

Favorite movies or types: I prefer high intensity/horror/scary/thriller types and especially like anything about serial killers. I don't care for animation in any form.

Favorite Color: Red, black, turquoise, terracotta.

Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like: I don't really collect music and get most everything I want for free on youtube, but I like most anything. Zeppelin is my all time fav and I love classic rock and old metal, but I also love modern pop, modern metal, modern country.

I collect: rocks, stones, shells, spheres (made of stone or wood or anything else), Harley stuff, Ford truck stuff, Jeep stuff, kitchen knives of any kind, Asian inspired things like tea pots, chop sticks, sushi plates.

Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need? If someone sends/brings me a stone or pebble or shell or piece of wood, I am happy beyond reason. It's my favorite souvenir and I have stones from all over the world (weird I know).

Do you wear accessories/jewelry? I love jewelry especially rings and earrings. Love silver (or silvertone), big bold pendants, rings, hoops, dangles, real stones or sparkly glass, biker jewelry, hippie jewelry, I like it all. I love fuzzy socks. I am not a fan of decorative scarves.

Anything else you would like your SS to know about you: I'm not as fussy as I sound sometimes. I am easily pleased and the simplest things make me happy. A bottle of nail polish, a shiny stone, a new magazine, some new tea to try = a happy day for Jeepy. : )

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

We put up all the decorations you might see at Christmas to include a tree. We burn a Yule log and save a piece for the next year.

I'm copying my list from 2010 which was copied from 2009. With any updating that needs to be done.

Any likes? I'm pretty open. I love fruity stuff.

Or dislikes? I'm not into vanilla or musky scents.

Favorite Type of Food (i.e. Italian, Mexican, McDonald’s, Burger King, etc) : I love In-n-Out burgers. Italian is good too.

Favorite Candy (things that won’t melt or go bad in mail) : JORDAN ALMONDS!!!!!!!! yum!!! I can eat pounds and pounds at a time. And I've been craving a rollo de guayaba like crazy, so if anyone knows of a place......

Favorite Scent (i.e. Fruity, Vanilla, Flowery, etc): For candles and scenty things I like fruity scents the best. Coco mango, strawberry. 'Island' scents (the ones that are beachy n fruity at the same time). I'm not really a scented lotion person. I wear Beautiful Sheer as my regular perfume so I don't like it to clash with my lotion.

Favorite Hobby (i.e. Scrap booking, Photography, things you collect, etc): I do beading (I would love a great big something to use as my center on a necklace or something), cross-stitching, crotchet, knit, puzzles (I love puzzles like nobody's business). I like to play board games, but I currently only have Monopoly. I also enjoy word searches & kakuro. I collect art books (but only from the bargain section of the bookstore. I'm poor and I like the books with pictures of pinups.... and lighthouses!!! )

Favorite books or types (romance, true store, mystery or just one you would like): I guess I'm collecting Stephen King books. I haven't bought anything in years so any of his newer books I probably don't have. There is one book that I lent out and never got back that would be nice to have again: Perfume. And of course the art books mentioned above. And the most recent Stephen King book that I don't have is the most current one of the Gunslinger saga. It came out in April and I still don't have it. I'm DYING TO HAVE IT!

Favorite animal: Dogs. Birds.

Favorite movies or types (romance, comedy or just a DVD/VHS you would like): Romance, comedy or action. I'm not really a fan of horror movies. Oooohhhhh!!!! Joe vs. the Volcano! Still Joe vs. the Volcano!

Favorite Color : Blue. Or Green. Or browns.

Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like: eh. Not really.

Do you collect anything? You mean other than dust? hehe... just kidding. I collect Christmas decorating stuff.

Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need? a life but I'm pretty sure those aren't for sale. hehe... I thought of something! I want a silver/gold/irridescent glitter polish or halo top coat.

Do you wear accessories/jewelry? No. Not really. I am trying to wear more dangly earrings though. But since it isn't really my thing, I'm having a hard time picking ones. They don't look nice on the cardboard thingy and I don't have vision to imagine what it would look like on me. But I usually like them once I wear them. I still feel the same.

Anything else you would like your SS to know about you: I really will love anything. I'm new on my own so Christmas-y stuff is always good if you couldn't think of anything that jumped out at you from my list!

Are you allergic to anything or have anything in particular you prefer NOT to get (like food, hair stuff, lotion, etc): I'd prefer to not get lotion. I'm sorta picky about lotion.

Yeah. The last lists are pretty right on.

Also, I love regional stuff, so if you are from somewhere known for something, I'd love to get one.

And you don't need to require a signature.

Oh I'm so excited!!!!

Any likes? I'm the easiest person in the world to buy for! I have lists under my name on amazon and doversaddlery.com, but something local to you is awesome, too. I love dark chocolate or ginger especially if going that type of route. I regularly use peppermint and eucalyptus for aromatherapy because I get migraines but can't take migraine meds.
I am really into concert photography (have no books on it...) and going to small, indie type concerts. I loooooooove learning about artists local to other people.
Or dislikes?
Not dislikes, but I can't eat anything w/ alcohol, allspice or green bell peppers. I'm not a fan of big chain restaurants, though I do go to Starbucks since that's about the only type of coffee shop I ever go past. I'm not the biggest fan of randon tchotskes just for the heck of collecting whatever, but mention what I do collect below. I mentioned music - I don't buy much on iTunes or other online sources both because the internet's super slow in our rural area and because I prefer to have the CD in hand.
Favorite Type of Food (i.e. Italian, Mexican, McDonald’s, Burger King, etc) :
I love most local types of food - cookbooks are always great for inspiration, particularly if they discuss cooking techniques and skills, since I love cooking but have no training in how to correctly do anything.
Favorite Candy (things that won’t melt or go bad in mail) :
Ginger, dark chocolate, as mentioned.
Favorite Scent (i.e. Fruity, Vanilla, Flowery, etc):
Vanilla or peppermint and eucalyptucs. I really dislike floral which tends to make me wheeze.
Favorite Hobby (i.e. Scrap booking, Photography, things you collect, etc): I collect kachinas (particularly Navajo style) and Oaxacan carvings, especially bugs, I love all kinds of books and have a BN Nook account, have a thing for scarves and hats, despite living in a warm climate.
I love horses, of course.
I'm trying to learn about horse photography, and it's funny that I'm much better at concerts than I am sunlight shooting horses!
Favorite books or types (romance, true store, mystery or just one you would like):
So many types... I'm a bookaholic, and enjoy romances for unthinking entertainment, mysteries and legal thrillers for more interest, anything about horses, etc...
Favorite animal:
Dogs. Funny enough since the horses are such a huge part of my time - I would pick my dog over my horse if it came down to it, and I love my horse!
Favorite movies or types (romance, comedy or just a DVD/VHS you would like):
I don't watch that many movies. There are some on my amazon list, though...
Favorite Color :
Green
Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like:
Favorite artists are Calexico, Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta, Carbon Leaf and Matt Nathanson. I'm going on The Rock Boat in Feb/March and only have CDs from Carbon Leaf, Green River Ordinance, Alternate Routes, Tony Lucca and Amy Gerhartz (and nothing recent from her.) Any of the other artists would be welcome.
Do you collect anything? Answered above...
Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need?
Do you wear accessories/jewelry? I'm trying to build up a bracelet collection of different weights and styles. I almost always wear a gold ring but seem drawn to silver bracelets most often, so don't mind a bracelet in a different type. I have small wrists, often fitting in larger kid bracelets, or in small adult. I have pierced ears but don't wear earrings a whole lot.
Anything else you would like your SS to know about you:
Are you allergic to anything or have anything in particular you prefer NOT to get (like food, hair stuff, lotion, etc):
Allergies mentioned above - don't need hair stuff, gels, etc.

Special request: If you have to send USPS, signature is fine, but probably put Sue as the recipient (same last name) as she'd likely pick it up for me. USPS won't deliver to our house because it's 1/4 mile from the mailboxes. Yippee.


Edit to add: I LOVE fun socks. I have little (size 6) feet, and love getting fun socks when Target has them on sale or something, but have trouble convincing myself to spend more on fun socks if boring ones are less expensive.


Edit edit: Nothing asks about religion. I'm Jewish, and while I celebrate Christmas with my stepfamily, I'm not so into Santa and Christmas trees... I'm also allergic to alcohol - another post reminded me I should mention that one!
The pews never miss a sermon but that doesn't get them one step closer to Heaven.

But at least the pews never attend yoga!

Also, I have been living in Okinawa, Japan for 2 years and will for the next two also. I have been away from American-type things like Target, Trader Joe's, and things like that. Dumb but I miss them terribly. Oh, and I will be in the US in December and that is where my gift will be sent, not Okinawa so you won't have to fill out any customs forms or anything like that.
Are you allergic to anything or have anything in particular you prefer NOT to get (like food, hair stuff, lotion, etc): I have sensitive ears but have no other allergies.

I do not require a signature on my package. ETA: I don't require delivery confirmation either.

I'm reading over this list and trying hard to change some stuff up on it, but it's still all so accurate! Don't hate me for being monotonous. I'll try my best to add a few new things.

Any likes?
coffee, cooking/baking, warm fuzzy socks, dachshunds, gardening, coffee, reading, spending time at home, coffee, snowmen, Etsy, scarves, purses, striped shirts, bright colors, Starbucks during the holiday season because the limited edition drinks are nom nom's(exciting stuff here, try not to be overwhelmed by it)

Or dislikes? mud, liver, rude people (please, don't mail me a rude person), spicy foods, uncomfortable shoes, stinky cheese, itchy fabric, political bile spewing

Favorite Type of Food (i.e. Italian, Mexican, McDonald’s, Burger King, etc) : Mexican is a favorite, cookies (it counts)

Favorite Candy (things that won’t melt or go bad in mail) : I'm not picky about sweets so I don't really have a favorite, but I love chocolate (just about any type, not crazy about white chocolate unless it's the white chocolate peppermint bark in the little squares from Ghiradelli), caramel and the like.

Favorite Scent (i.e. Fruity, Vanilla, Flowery, etc): I like vanilla, cinnamon apple type Fall scents for this time of year, nothing overly flowery because it makes me sneeze. I have one of those wax melt/warmer things if that helps.

Favorite Hobby (i.e. Scrap booking, Photography, things you collect, etc):
I love making cards and crafting. I don't really scrapbook, but small embellishments for card making I really enjoy.

Favorite books or types (romance, true store, mystery or just one you would like): fiction, cookbooks, mystery; I'm not too picky

Favorite animal: The elusive Calvin dog of the dachshund species, he's mah boo

Favorite movies or types (romance, comedy or just a DVD/VHS you would like): none in particular, we rent so I don't want/need any DVD's

Favorite Color : I love color! I like red, teal/turquoise, orange, gray. Not crazy about pastels.

Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like: none, I stream Pandora if I listen to music

Do you collect anything? no (dust?)

Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need? Because I can't make this easier for you, dear Secret Curly, I can't think of anything to put here.

Do you wear accessories/jewelry? I like silver jewelry and love scarves. For some reason I'm really drawn to circles when it comes to jewelry (does that make sense?). I like necklaces, bracelets, and dangly earrings, although I have sensitive ears

Anything else you would like your SS to know about you: Absolutely not picky and will love whatever you pick for me! (unless it is mud, please do not send mud or anything stinky or zombies)

Are you allergic to anything or have anything in particular you prefer NOT to get (like food, hair stuff, lotion, etc): No hair products please, although I wouldn't mind lotion, bodywash and stuff like that. I never buy things like that for myself.

If I can think of anything else I'll add it! (really, I'll come back and update if I come up with anything helpful!)

I do not need a signature required at delivery, although delivery confirmation is probably a good idea all around, but not required.

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.
