Maine Post Cards


Fellow Mad Scientists,

I just put my card order in. Those of you who know can count on 2 things:

1) It will have "Maine" in it somewhere.
2) It'll be humorous.

Last 2 times it was bear treats and a lobster bitching at a turkey about a "menu".

I look forward to getting the new cards out. I'll let y'all know when I mail them.

Hey all.
Now the fun gets to start.

Registration has now closed. Sorry if you missed out.
Allocations have been done and sent out via U2U. (I decided not to send duplicate emails this year.)
If for some reason you missed your message then let me know and I will re-send it.

I am off to find some goodies for someone on the other side of the globe. Cool stuff.

Use this thread for further discussion of SS and for documenting the glee at unwrapping time.

Thanks very much j-sum1! Luckily I have a very appropriate gift on hand for my recipient. I will find something local for them as well to top up the stocking. Let the fun begin indeed!

Hello, I reached out to j_sum about my registration but he has not responded and it's been about 4 days.
I was wondering if there are any other people who have the administrative power to see if my registration has been successful.
Thanks

I sent a U2U explaining why you are not registered this time around.
That has not changed.
Join in next year.

Hey Guys, if i don't know really what to send to someone, can i message he/she and ask for general interest, or does that ruin the fun ? Because, i don't want to send something that doesn't match.

That would ruin the fun. Try to find something fitting based on the info you were sent. If the info wasn’t clear enough, that’s on them, not you. j_sum1 can be an intermediary if you have specific questions that need to be answered.

Holiday Cards


Had 29 on my SM composite list this year. Cards went into the mail at 4:10 PM EST.

Breakdown as follows:

International(15): Argentina - 1, Australia - 4, Canada - 3, Czech Republic - 1,
France - 3, Germany - 1, Italy - 1, Japan - 1

USA(14): Arkansas - 1, California - 2, Georgia - 1, Kentucky - 1, Maryland - 1,
Minnesota - 1, North Carolina - 2, Oregon - 1, New York - 1, Texas - 2, Utah - 1

Let me know when you'all receive your cards.

It's my hope that the list keeps on expanding.


In the meantime, I'm still looking for a a gift for my Santee.

That reminds me- it's okay to open up your present as soon as you get it, rather than waiting for Dec 25th. That way your Santa isn't left wondering if it arrived or not.



Please remember: "Filtrate" is not a verb.
Write up your lab reports the way your instructor wants them, not the way your ex-instructor wants them.

Just got your postcard tonight. I didn't expect to receive anything this year since I totally blanked on the signup date.. guess you must've had my info from last year's event. Thanks for sending me one, feels like I wasn't left out.

Mailing List


You're correct. My mailing list is cumulative. I send cards to members on the list whether
they're signed up for Secret Santa or not. I want people to know that we think of them
even if they can't participate in the current Secret Santa. Thanks for letting me know !
It's appreciated.

MadHatter

P.S. Geographically you're the closest person to me so I'm not surprised that you received
your card 1st. Where you're at the climate is probably on par with my location here in
Maine.

Mad Hatter,

Got your postcard yesterday, it reminded me of a weekend in Vermont one winter many years ago. I have barely been in maine, just flew through Portland once. But maybe I can get back one fo these days for a vacation, but in the Summer or Fall, not winter. Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Got your Christmas card MadHatter! It was wicked funny! I lived in Portland for a couple of years back in the late 70’s. I’m reminded of how y’all talk when I go to visit my sisters in Mass. or New Hampshire. The card is going up on my refrigerator! Thanks!



You can’t claim you drank all day if you didn’t start early in the morning.

You should open it and check it for technical reasons (if it's broken and needs replacement or a refund) as you can do that only within a short amount of time.

I opened my present and found a Soxhlet extractor in it.
I've been wanting a Soxhlet extractor for a while now, and it's in there! How wonderful!
Thank you, Santa.
