2021 Secret Santa - Sign up here


My apologies that I am a few days late with this. There is a story behind that which i may well get to tell.

Here is the Secret Santa Sign-up form. Link.
By request, there are a couple of new questions this year.

Please sign up if possible before 25 October: I want to do allocations then so we all have plenty of time. After that date, I make no promises -- it will depend on how many latecomers there are and if we can organise a second group.

Have lots of fun this year.
Hohoho.


Questions, comments, and other related discussion can be added to this thread if needed.

Thanks for organising this again j_sum1. I am only able to give this year as I don't have a fixed address. Can I sign up to give, but not receive please? It didn't look like it would work with the online form

Edit - typo

Did not think of that. Sure. But if you want to U2U me some details of your travels I may be able to organise something. Maybe even someone to visit while you are on the road. Who knows what is possible?

Just type "no fixed abode" in the box and I will understand what has happened.

I'm participating, although I will be out of the country for six weeks starting on the 20th of November.

Which brings me to the above quote. I will be about 20 miles south of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Estados Unidos de Mexico and if there are any members in that area, would be jazzed for a "meet and greet". Will have a Mexican cell number at that time, and anyone that may be interested can U2U me.

In my Sign-up questionnaire I put 14/40 for the glassware size. Fat-finger syndrome. It was supposed to be 24/40. Looking forward to this!

You should be able to edit your response, charley1957.
If not, let me know.

Bump…

The weekend is a good time to sort out your preferences and sign up.
Sign-ups to date are approximately a third of last year's total. But I know that many regulars have not entered their details yet.
Two weeks to go.

This year I can't participate as I am moving to other country and don't know if it's possible to run my lab there.
But I hope I will be able to join next year. Great idea

I've signed up. I'm excited, I hope to be able to participate each year going forward. Also I've just realized, in the address box, I didn't write Canada, only "ON" for Ontario. I'm in Canada.



Nuclear physics is neat. It's a shame it's so regulated...

Now that I think about it, that's probably a good thing. Still annoying though.

Semi secret santa :D

Signed up!
I had in mind it stops at the 23rd not 25th :o

I would prefer someone in europe if possible.
But I'll checked the worldwide box anyways.

Bumping this again.
There is a significant number of people who have participated in the past and expressed interest in doing so again, who have not yet signed up. Time is running out.

That said, I am going to go a couple of days past the 25 October deadline I set. Work-related matters. (Big story. I might post in a separate thread.)

Sorry for my tardiness. My week got torn to shreds. I know some of you are chomping at the bit.

You have 24 hours from this post to sign up. After that there may be a lstecomers' group depending on numbers.

Processing the details right now.
Numbers are down on last year and there are a few who have regularly participated who have not signed up this year.
Form is still open so I can do a batch of latecomers -- assuming there are at least two.

Watch your U2U and email for details of your recipient.

I think my Secret Santa present just arrived. That was fast. I guess I'd better get to shopping at some point.

Merci, Santa, er, Pere Noel!


My mistake- this is something else that I forgot that I was expecting. Carry on.....

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.

Hey all.
I have had a couple of late sign-ups and one person who has unfortunately needed to pull out. I will send out U2Us to affected people tonight.
Looking forward to this: There are some real nice goodies being sent that i know of. i would love to be a fly on the wall when some of these get opened.

J.


[edit]
I should add that I have closed the form. So no more sign ups for this year.
