Hello people.

I've been meaning to flesh out the final details of [ profile] mockduck's Secret Santa for a while now, but time and poorliness just got in the way. So I'm stealing a few moments away from the housework to fill in the final details.

Here's the video of Ned picking the names. It may only be of interest to me because it's my son, but there's humour to be had in him struggling with my poor handwriting and the pronunciation of lj user names.

He drew names out, and the first person gave to the second, the second to the third, and so on, with the last giving to the first.

I wasn't going to use any editorial powers and just let the randomness stand. But... from Ned's draw I noticed that [ profile] sahara_harp was drawn to send a gift to [ profile] semioticwarrior, and that they both lived in the same city, so I figured there would be a fair chance that they might know each other. So to try and make it a bit more spread out, I chose (at random) to swap [ profile] semioticwarrior and [ profile] kristenlou in their places.

On sending out the e-mails about who was gifting who, I received an almost immediate reply from [ profile] sahara_harp telling me that she and [ profile] kristenlou (who she was now gifting after my changes) had been friends for 20 years. That'll teach me not to meddle!

So, the full (slightly revised) list was:-

[ profile] hartleyhare sent to
[ profile] bingo_mcdingo sent to
[ profile] blue_monday sent to
[ profile] mzdt sent to
[ profile] land_girl sent to
[ profile] lady_mitzi sent to
[ profile] sahara_harp sent to
[ profile] kristenlou sent to
[ profile] gfrancie sent to
[ profile] ratphooey sent to
[ profile] _moggy_ sent to
[ profile] semioticwarrior sent to
[ profile] lurpak sent to
[ profile] mockduck sent to
[ profile] amuchmoreexotic sent to
[ profile] several_bees sent to
[ profile] hartleyhare

I've seen no comment from [ profile] blue_monday who I sent a gift to. Not knowing him, and only having his interests to go by, the gift I sent was going to be an amazing hit or a complete disaster with no possibility for the middle ground. I'd be interested to know which (especially if an apology from me is in order!)

Thank you all for participating, hope you all had fun and nice to meet a lot of you for the first time! Merry Christmas.
