Holy cats it's SECRET SANTA 2017 (11th ANNUAL)


#61

Crap I need to update the wishlist at the link I sent my Santa before fire pairs us up or someone is going to think I’m super crazy.


#62

Aw, look at you guys leaving me notes.

#63

You also left notes to your Santa!

#64

Clearly whoever gets matched up with @fire should get her pies and/or charts.


#65

I love both of these things.


#66

During this month I’m generally good at providing the former.

#67

Yet another reason to visit California. . .


#68

Secret Santa pairings have gone out. If you believe you should have gotten a pairing and didn’t, or if you have any questions, please let me know.


#69

Oh man I am super excited! LET THE STALKING COMMENCE


#70

Yayyyy so much fun!


#71

#72

Hmmm…I am surprised to learn that Australia is only 2.6% kroks and dropbears.


#73

The rest is snakes, spiders and sharks. I can’t guarantee that one won’t crawl into my Santees gift by the way, so treat with caution. And as you don’t know who that is, you should all be cautious.


#74

Perhaps you can now finally reveal the biggest mystery: what’s the difference between “Anywhere” and “Put me in whatever category needs more people”, they both seemed to be interchangeable.


#75

Let us not forget the deadly bush.


#76

There isn’t much difference. But I imagine that some folks would prefer to ship internationally, and some don’t have a preference.


#77

One of the many reasons I don’t live in Queensland. I once stepped out of a boat and reached (unknowingly) for the stem of this bush to haul myself up the bank. Fortunately I got on really well with the rangers I was working with, otherwise they might not have warned me before it was too late. ;)


#78

Why do they even allow it to grow where someone might grab it? Or does it threaten to kill a gardener when he comes too close?

It’s a Triffid offshoot, isn’t it?


#79

I was up some river in the middle of nowhere looking for croc nests, it’s a native plant that’s meant to be there (to add to the hazards). I’m sure nobody had this stuff in their back yard.

I might send some to my Santee so they can try it out.

Watch it become the next invasive species!
