    I don't want a lot for Christmas
    There is just one thing I need
    And I don't care about the presents
    Underneath the Christmas tree
    I don't need to hang my stocking
    There upon the fireplace
    Santa Claus won't make me happy
    With a toy on Christmas Day
    I just want it for my own
    More than you could ever know
    Make my wish come true
    All I want for Christmas
    Is the Colon Snake


    Greetings forum members. With Halloween and Bonfire night still weeks away, that must mean it's time to partake in StalkerFest18, better known as EGSS. Hand your details over to a complete stranger who will then hand them on to yet another complete stranger.
    What's the worst that could happen?



    Yeah! It's EG Secret Santa time again!


    The Rules

    1) You have until midnight on Saturday 17th November to register.

    That's over a month. Try not to be late!

    2) Post in the thread by all means, but to definitely be included, you need to PM me with the following:

    - Your real name
    - Your EG username
    - An address to which your gift can be sent. Don't mind where it is - doesn't even have to be your house. As long as the Post Office can find it and you can get your parcel from it, it'll do.

    3) Aim to spend something in the region of 10 - 15. If you can't stretch to that much, that's fine. If you're feeling a bit fancy-Dan and can afford a bit more, triffic. It's not about the money, it's about having a parcel that's interesting, fun, mysterious and possibly difficult to explain to family members on Christmas morning.

    4) All parcels sent in the UK should be sent 'Recorded, signed for'. Prices start at 3.95 for Second class parcels, so it's not over the top, but it makes a huge difference to the number of parcels actually reaching the recipient. You can find details here

    5) You will receive your giftee's details as soon as possible after the weekend of 17th November, and from that point you have until Saturday 8th December to get your parcel in the post.

    6) If you happen to have to post your parcel overseas, then I'd suggest you aim for a bit earlier than that. Say, Saturday 1st December.

    7) As ever, names are drawn at random, but if you get an overseas recipient, and you've had one in the past few years, I will redraw and give you a UK address instead. Clearly if you live abroad, there's not much I can do about it.

    8) As usual, if anybody wants to ask questions of their recipient, t-shirt size, etc, I'm happy to pass messages on.

    Let Christmas commence!

    *bump*

    Thus far, EGSS will be a small but select affair of just ten participants. Plenty of time to sign up if you're interested though.

    Aw jeez, not this shit again!

    Was worried when boo was abscent for so long that XMAS WAS GOING TO BE RUINED THIS YEAR

    RU-INED

    Phew!

    By the way, if whichever unlucky bastard gets the guy living across the Atlantic as their target feels like springing for sending a package direct from the UK, my five year old daughter loves her some Kinder Eggs. Which, as you may know, are considered too dangerous to sell in this nation. Her Xmas would be made great again if she had some to go with her big pressie from Santa, a Rainbow Dash AR-15.

    We need more people to sign up, otherwise the risk of getting the dreaded EG Colon Snake(TM) is too damn high!


    TOO DAMN HIGH!!
