it's that time of year again. time for secret santa:

The idea of Secret Santa is very simple - you pull a name out of a hat and buy that person a present. Your name is in the hat too, so someone out there will be buying you a present too. End result: everyone gets a present and everyone's happy!

If you want to be a Secret Santa, all you need is a wishlist at one of the world's many Amazon stores* and a personal website. First you tell Santa about yourself, then on December 10th we'll tell you who you're buying a gift for. Then all you have to do is wait for your gift to arrive by Christmas Day.

Santa remains a member of the "Holy Sprocket Church of the Sprained Clutch" despite their draconian policies against Elf Marriage. Don't worry, you don't have to convert (and frankly we'd be surprised if you wanted to) - you can give and receive presents to celebrate Hannukah, Kwanza, Christmas or "secret holiday gift-giving robot day".

this'll be the third year i've participated. it's always fun to buy gifts for someone and to get something fun in return too! the cut off is december 10th, so if you want to participate better get cracking!
