2006-12-23 [Linderel]: Sent mine, though it's awfully modest. :S But I hope that the recipient likes it anyway. ^_^
2006-12-23 [The Red Baron]: So, does that mean we can send them today?
2006-12-23 [Cia_mar]: as soon as they were finished yes you send them and then on christmas kieli will give them to the people that they are for
2006-12-23 [The Red Baron]: Roger roger.
2006-12-23 [Yuriona]: *sighs* I'm pretty sure I won't be able to get mine done in time. My husband just took our youngest to emergency with a very bad cough. dammit...
2006-12-23 [Anvikit]: Aww, I hope they are alright.. It sucks being sick at christmas (I know I've got something myself .. blah.. but rather me then my babes)
2006-12-23 [Linderel]: Eep. I hope s/he'll be alright and it's nothing serious. :S
2006-12-23 [Yuriona]: Me too but she's had a low-grade fever for the last couple of days along with a very nasty cough and no appetite. I'm catching a cold too but I would rather be sick than have my kids sick at any time. *frets*
2006-12-23 [Calico Tiger]: I know the feeling! When I'm sick, I can handle it (even if I'm in terrible misery). But if anyone else in the family is sick (including the pets), I get heartburn and worry like mad. *slobbers* Hope it's nothing too terrible that a little time, food and rest won't help
2006-12-23 [Linderel]: I would tell you that it'll be okay and go over soon, but I don't think it would help much. Either way, hope neither of you stays ill for very long. *offers a mug of tea*
2006-12-24 [Just.Kate]: Alright, Donovan has confirmed reciept of the following users' art: [Perplexity], [someelf], [Mom], [Linderel], [Rennie], [Cia_mar], [Paz], [moonscale], [Elisha Kelly], [The Red Baron], [Yncke], [Lerune], [Jitter], [Calico Tiger], [Just.Kate], and [Cathos]. Please get your entries in asap if your name isnt on this list!
2006-12-24 [Ultiem]: need my email?
2006-12-24 [Anvikit]: I sent mine in.. humm.. must not have gotten it yet.. my email addy is annie.harris@u
2006-12-24 [Yuriona]: I'll get mine done as quick as I can. Turns out my little one has tonsillitis and is now on penicillin so hopefully she'll get better soon. :)
2006-12-24 [Calico Tiger]: Oooo poor thing.... But she'll love the ice cream and pudding part of that, hehe.
2006-12-24 [Yuriona]: She's been eating popscicles all day. Haven't tried the ice cream route yet but I bet it and jello will be very popular menu selections.
2006-12-24 [nathie]: kieli: oh no - i´ve sent the mail last week to the wildlife.us@gm
maybe it went into the spam folder?
2006-12-24 [Just.Kate]: No, Nathan, you werent on the official list of switchees. But I got yours... Smexy. -rawr-
2006-12-24 [The Red Baron]: Well, [Yuriona], the ice cream is usually prescribed after a tonsillectomy, as it decreases the pain (cold acts as a local anaesthetic). Would that I could've done more than offer remote advice to see a doctor in first-person mode.
2006-12-24 [Cathos]: Poor [Yuriona] and poor kidling. :( I had to look after a poorly [bazzalisk] a few weeks ago and I offically stopped sleeping. Anywho, I'm glad my picture is finished and processed. I have no clue what the subject is, but hopefully the recipient will.
2006-12-24 [Yuriona]: Tonsillectomie
2006-12-24 [LadyMoon]: I sent mine, please don't hit me ;_;
2006-12-24 [The Red Baron]: Just as I said, the cold decreases the pain and it goes without saying that antibiotic kills the (bacterial) infection. Why don't they do tonsillectomie
2006-12-24 [Skydancer]: Is wacking the compute rwiht a broom trying to get the feaking piece of work to upload.. ack...
2006-12-24 [Anvikit]: tonsilitis is just a swelling up of the tonsils usually due to a bacterial infection.. It's common and easily treated with antibiotics.. And usually less frequent as you get older.. SO unless children keep getting throat infections over and over in mass amounts its usually easier just to treat each case with antibiotics rather than putting them through a surgical procedure to remove them..
Plus once you've had your tonsils out you can still get an infection, and from what I've heard they hurt worse if you've had your tonsils out.. although the risk of getting one would be reduced I suppose..
2006-12-24 [The Red Baron]: I graduate as a GP (with a bachelor in medicine and surgery) this year, and I know all this. The infection that occurs after tonsillectomy is most probably due to a remnant of the tonsils or just another infection.
As a general rule, we go for medical treatment then surgery; plus, if tonsillitis is recurring time and time again, it's an indication for tonsillectomy.
2006-12-24 [The Red Baron]: Tonsilitis is not just "swelling" of the tonsils; the suffix "itis" means inflammation; either with or without the formation of pus.
2006-12-25 [Just.Kate]: One hour left!
2006-12-25 [Skydancer]: MAILED!!!!
2006-12-25 [nathie]: yes, do you post the entries here finally?
i´m curious too!
2006-12-25 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: I have mine done now, how do i give it?
2006-12-25 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: done
2006-12-25 [Balthizar]: Mine sadly will have to be given to my person by myself. It may be a bit before I can finish it. Things have come up that is making it difficult to find time to draw. Sorry><"
2006-12-25 [Just.Kate]: Oo uh. Not yet I cant, because not everyone who was slated to recieve one of those gifts finished theirs, and they cant know who had them, or recieve their gift until they finish.
2006-12-26 [Cathos]: *poings [The Red Baron]* After I drew it, I tried imitating the pose and found that it is physically impossible! Who needs anatomy when you can have booooobies. :) Apologies to more sensitive souls.
2006-12-26 [Just.Kate]: xD
2006-12-26 [Calico Tiger]: omg u sed booooobies i m ofen... offind... sad!11!one1
2006-12-26 [Yuriona]: Yeah.... sorry about that. I couldn't help my youngest getting tonsillitis or myself getting sick afterwards. *grumbles* I intend to finish my gift art however late it may be. At least my punishment hasn't completely stomped on my Christmas spirit.
2006-12-26 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: So it's only displayed does who already delivered right?
2006-12-26 [The Red Baron]: boobies, tits, ata, breasts, etc who cares! As long as they're round, bouncy, and stuff...
2006-12-26 [Balthizar]: And stuff? o.O
2006-12-26 [The Red Baron]: You get my drift? (wink wink)
2006-12-26 [Balthizar]: No...not really..and I dont think I want your..."drift" XP
2006-12-26 [The Red Baron]: What's wrong with my drift?
2006-12-26 [Balthizar]: Its all...drifty.
2006-12-26 [someelf]: o.o;
2006-12-26 [nathie]: BWAHAHAAHAA!
2006-12-26 [someelf]: XD You all scare me X3 -giggles and pokes and slobbers on them all- :3
2006-12-27 [Just.Kate]: Uh. That page displays all the art I revcieved, without saying who it was meant for.
2006-12-27 [someelf]: ^^;;
2006-12-27 [Ocean Soul]: Okay, I tried my best but I really really *really* don't have enough time to do a decent image anymore, and I'd hate to hand in some crappy doodle :/ So, the end of the story right now is that I can do the drawing once I'm back from Canada (I leave tomorrow and come back on the 16th of Jan). I know I should not have signed up, because I knew I wouldn't have much time, but I didn't expect my time to be that limited :( I'm terribly sorry :(
2006-12-27 [someelf]: -hugs- awww >_< -licks cheek-
2006-12-27 [Ocean Soul]: I only today had time to buy a pajama and some pants so I can take them along tomorrow >_> That's the ultimate sign for my trouble with the time :P
2006-12-27 [someelf]: o_o -pokes- did you sleep enough? >_> -blinkblink- I am good at getting ready for trips XD -coughsnotcoug
2006-12-27 [Ocean Soul]: Eek >_> But well, [herrschneemann] ensured me that even if I forgot my toothbrush, he would buy me a new one xD So.. as long as I don't forget the ticket and the passport, I guess I should be fine ;)
2006-12-27 [someelf]: XD -sticks it to your body- that'll be okay for now XD -giggles- :3
2006-12-27 [nathie]: mr. snowman? LOL sounds german. ^_^
2006-12-27 [someelf]: Yes it does o.o ,, Now you say it XD
2006-12-27 [nathie]: hahaa, i meant Herr Schneemann, this is german. who needs a whack with a cooked noodle here? ;P
2006-12-27 [someelf]: XD I know :P I can speak German XD
2006-12-27 [nathie]: ich auch. :)
2006-12-27 [someelf]: Yay! -hugs- :D I didn't speak it for a long time and I had it only for two years on school v.v But I do understand it XD
2006-12-27 [nathie]: i know, you can speak danish and dutch. german is hard to speak, damn grammar, but i think danish isn´t much easier. :)
2006-12-27 [Firenze]: I think German has easier grammar rules than French and is easier to speak as well ^_^ But my German accent is terrible...
2006-12-27 [someelf]: :P I speak Danish more then German actuely XD Mostly because I am in Danmark XD -giggles- :P German I can understand and is similiar to my birth language, Dutch. And Danish is compared to English, Dutch and German mixed together and made into a hard language with many possible of saying things in many diffrent ways X_x -Rambeling-
2006-12-27 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: I already sent mine...
2006-12-27 [Rennie]: *sadface* I sent mine the day after we got our names. I even have a confirmation email :( I just resent it though :/
2006-12-28 [Just.Kate]: [Shjahjdahdvwa] Ive gotten yours. Donovan was a little slow, but Im getting there...
[Rennie] Something wierd is happening. You say you sent it, but I never recieve any mail from you, not even in the spam. Uh, maybe uploading it to ET? It would follow the ss06-erinbabe.
2006-12-28 [Rennie]: I sent it to your newer email, but I will also upload it here and give it to you via msg :)
2006-12-28 [Elisha Kelly]: thats okay... I might colourz it :P :D when I get time... I likes colouring stuff :)
2006-12-29 [The Red Baron]: Chibi heads on spikes over the battlements...
2006-12-29 [Rennie]: Thank you Skydancer! Beautiful!
2006-12-29 [Skydancer]: I am delighted you enjoy it. :) it was one of those moment things :D the sunlight reflecting off of a car across the street. :)
2006-12-29 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: Let me guess... the person who was suppose to do for me was [Intolerant Of Hatred] lol
[Elisha Kelly] if you do color it could you sign it and let me print it in a big frame to have it as a portrait in my room?! Ahah :p
2006-12-29 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: I wanted to do that with my gift but hey... I can't really complain
2006-12-29 [The Red Baron]: S'all right, mate. We can both do that to our gifts; so what did you get?
2006-12-29 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: Nothing! Lol...
2006-12-29 [Cia_mar]: i enjoyed making mine.. i only hope the recipiant likes it too
2006-12-29 [The Red Baron]: As did I, Cia, as did I. Gato, old chap, cheer up, it'll come someday...
2006-12-29 [Mom]: That's okay...I just found out mine was never delivered.
2006-12-29 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: I dunno why aren't we allowed to know who did the work, since we are already in day 29th...
2006-12-29 [Calico Tiger]: Because some people never got their gifts because they weren't completed. Kieli is doing it this way so that those who didn't do their end don't get a gift for nothing. Not fair to those who did their gift and didn't get anything :) And there are several that are just taking a while, but are still working on their gifts :D
2006-12-29 [Ihsahn]: I just need a new scanner, my mother f&%$#$#ing one isn't working, I made a pretty butterfly however =(
2006-12-29 [Calico Tiger]: *comforts*
2006-12-29 [Ihsahn]: I'm just going to go to the library when ever I can and upload it from there,. this drawing took me a few hours to do and by golly it is getting delivered!
2006-12-29 [Ultiem]: get travis to take a picture of it and have him upload it
OR GO TO MY MOMS HOUSE ON WEEKENDS
2006-12-30 [The Red Baron]: My already buste scanner died in the bombing; so did my already busted printer.
2006-12-30 [Just.Kate]: Erinbabe, Youre confirmed and sent.
2006-12-30 [Ultiem]: still feel sad
2006-12-30 [Skydancer]: all in all, it has been a lovely idea, a lot of very thoughtful folk are here. :)
2006-12-30 [Ultiem]: like....
2006-12-30 [Skydancer]: Indeed :)
2006-12-30 [Ultiem]: mine wasnt received either
2006-12-31 [Just.Kate]: Ultiem - If you did yours, but didnt recieve one in return, its because the person who had you didnt finish yet.
2007-01-01 [Anvikit]: Guess I was the odd man out eh? .. Oh well at least I had fun doodling up my part.:)
2007-01-01 [Calico Tiger]: The person who got my name didn't finish theirs either, Anvikit :) There were several of us, hehe. But it was still fun!
2007-01-01 [Just.Kate]: Except I have no idea who had her :( I feel so bad! I will TOTALLY make this up to you I swear!
2007-01-01 [Just.Kate]: Because an impartial third party set up the matches and had no idea there were going to be so many issues with people who hated each other participating in the same event -_-;;;
2007-01-01 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: Lol i don't know her actually, but I don't think she cares about this, And i don't see any art in her house
2007-01-01 [nathie]: aaw, that sucks. people who can´t keep their promises shouldn´t join such a wiki.
2007-01-01 [The Red Baron]: Let's give people a break people, some might have their reasons. The suspect is innocent till proven otherwise.
2007-01-01 [Elisha Kelly]: hmmmmmmm has she been on Et? and if so hasa anyone msged her? because if she still doesn't respond why doesn't the gift meant for her be given to someone who has submitted, but recieved nothing in return???
2007-01-01 [The Red Baron]: I don't know; it's just that I'm not one to jump into conclusions.
2007-01-01 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: I'm just a bit disappointed because I wanted my first elftown gift to print it and turn it into a portrait :-/
2007-01-02 [Jitter]: that's quite rude :/
2007-01-02 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: She didn't wanted to do it and made up an excuse as usual.
2007-01-02 [Jitter]: I could try pick up one to make them a gift but no idea how much time it will take me.
2007-01-02 [nathie]: aaw, gato, you said you´d like a self portrait from you. :) if you like my style, then i´d draw you one.
2007-01-02 [someelf]: I would make also extra pressies if people wanted to :)
2007-01-03 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: Nate that would be an honour :)
2007-01-03 [nathie]: okies, do you have a special pic you like most? you can PM me this.
2007-01-05 [Elisha Kelly]: ~.~ *points to comment above*** my gift is going to waste... :P I had no time but I still managed to do something :P
2007-01-06 [Ultiem]: who ever is doing mine dont worry about it i dont want it...
2007-01-06 [Yuriona]: I think Elysiann has a good idea actually. *nods*
2007-01-06 [The Red Baron]: People, better late than never; or so I believe. Nothing can go to waste if you want it not to.
2007-01-06 [Ultiem]: you dont have to
2007-01-06 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: it's your call.. But you don't miss anything interesting...
2007-01-06 [Ultiem]: to be honest i never expected anything anyway even something as simple as a CD from home i never expect to get
2007-01-10 [Balthizar]: HA! I finished the picture^^. Just need to scan it now. Truly awsome picture too. Pretty proud of it.
2007-01-10 [Anvikit]: very lovely artwork Nathan :)
2007-01-10 [Cia_mar]: very lifelike! great job!
2007-01-10 [someelf]: -nods- He looks so pretty! -drool- >:3
2007-01-10 [Mom]: Very Nice Nathan...*Walk
2007-01-10 [nathie]: Mom: LOL what about blondes? i can´t dye Gato´s hair! but i´m working - again on a blonde for a book cover. .)
2007-01-10 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: I like my hair dark better... I hate blonde people (joking)
2007-01-10 [Cia_mar]: depends on the combination... dark hair with light eyes is nice and bright blue eyes on a white or light blonde person are nice too..
i have honey brown/blond hair but have plain brown eyes... so since i am in the middle on hair, it is nice to see the extremes ....
2007-01-10 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: Blondes are cute... Look at torrie wilson and the playmates! ahah But in a guy blonde color is stupid... In my opinion... I may think that because most latin people are dark haired
2007-01-10 [Mom]: *Loves Blondes*...mus
2007-01-10 [Cia_mar]: that may be... i grew up in southern california and i have to say those blonde surfers were pretty hot...
but the again there is alot to be said for the dark latin type too....lol
2007-01-10 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: It's a matter of taste I guess xD What about red heads?!
2007-01-10 [Mom]: Redheads...sex
2007-01-10 [Cia_mar]: well red heads... hmm in guys i guesss ok... me personally , i have always wanted to be a red head... wild auburn hair with green eyes... yup... *sighs and looks at straight plain light brown/blonde hair and simple brown eyes*
2007-01-10 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: Simple brown eyes, there's no such thing xD Brown is beautiful
2007-01-10 [Cia_mar]: *blushes* well i was once told that i had flecks of gold in my brown eyes so maybe not so simple! lol
2007-01-10 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: See? :p I love black eyes btw
2007-01-10 [Cia_mar]: cool!!! not seen black very much
2007-01-10 [nathie]: mmmh...black hair and black eyes. aaw, damn, blondes are pretty too, especially scandinavian boys. redheads with freckles... oh hell *drool*
2007-01-10 [Cia_mar]: lol you are all bad boys! *teases*
2007-01-10 [Mom]: I love watching 13th Warrior...all ages and colors. Yummy.
2007-01-10 [Cia_mar]: lol
2007-01-10 [nathie]: have you seen "alexander"? the movie theme is slighty funny, cuz they hide alexanders gayness, but i just watched it because of all that half naked pretty men. a droolfest. j. rhys-meyers, fran bosh and others. mmmh.
2007-01-10 [Cia_mar]: not seen either of those movies...
2007-01-10 [Mom]: I did but the men in Alexander are too pretty for my taste. lol
2007-01-10 [nathie]: really? mmmh. for me they are just right.
2007-01-10 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: Did they have hair on the chest at least?
2007-01-11 [nathie]: hahahaha! no, not. fran bosch is playing bagoas, an eunuch, and they don´t have body hair at all. mmh. just a tanned, well oiled and shiney body. but i ike hairy men too. i have alot of different tastes in men. oh, we have a theme here. LOL
2007-01-11 [Mom]: I don't like hairy men...yuk. My huusband didn't even have enough facial hair to shave everyday untill he was 30.
2007-01-11 [Mom]: Hairy men and secret santa...? I think we took a wrong turn somewhere.
2007-01-11 [The Red Baron]: A eunuch! They're rather floppy and useless down there... and missing some important parts.
2007-01-11 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: I love everything...
2007-01-11 [nathie]: @Von Richthofen: thats wrong - partial.. it depends on how they did it and what they cut off. there are different methods. :) and it´s false too that all of them get fat and "girlish". :)
2007-01-11 [The Red Baron]: I know of medical and of surgical castration old chap; give 'em all some cyproterone and let's laugh at them. I meant it as a joke. Just for the record, I graduate as an MD this year.
2007-01-11 [Yuriona]: You're a full MD after this year? Wow...how many more years after that to become a surgical specialist?
2007-01-12 [The Red Baron]: I am not planning for surgical specialty; I still haven't made up my mind.
2007-01-12 [Just.Kate]: I think he should be a family doctor, and help the poor. :) But I know he'll make the choice that's right for him.
2007-01-12 [Yuriona]: From what I understand pediatrics isn't something he enjoys and when you're a family doctor you have to work with a lot of kids.
2007-01-12 [The Red Baron]: I'll probably go for something in internal medicine.
2007-01-12 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: That's hot
2007-12-06 [Yncke]: Is there going to be a secret santa 2007? :)
2007-12-10 [Cathos]: I'd really enjoy doing this again. :D
2007-12-10 [Anvikit]: it was fun.. but last year I participated but I guess they forgot to give my name to anyone, so I didn't get any art.. kind of a bummer.. Still fun to draw something for someone else though.. Kind of late in the season to start this now though .. most people don't have much time to devote to art this close to the holiday season
2007-12-10 [SilverFire]: We could always just give people until new years to get it done. :)
Why don't we just create a page and have the sing-up deadline for the end of the week, see how much interest it generates, and take it from there? :)
2007-12-10 [Yncke]: Sounds good to me. With a new year's deadline, there's still time during the christmas holidays.
2007-12-10 [Calico Tiger]: Yeah, I didn't get any art either *sad* We did have a deadline extension for this one as well, but people still didn't get their artwork turned in. I think that's why I'm turned off of doing a Secret Santa anymore, personally.
But I know so many still love the idea. And it could be different this year!
But if you do try it out, stress as much as possible that if the person doesn't think they're going to have the time to finish, to not put their name down. Yes, it's fun seeing the reaction of the person who got the gift you drew them. But it's a bummer when you find out you got nothing. And personally, I'm selfish XD I want to get as well as receive, lol.
2007-12-10 [Yncke]: I can imagine that not getting a drawing is a real bummer, while getting a drawing was really fantastic. (I had your drawing for over half a year as a wall paper, [Anvikit], while most of the times I get bored of my wall papers in less than a month.)
It's a problem that isn't easily solved... :s
2007-12-11 [Anvikit]: :) still had fun :) and glad you liked her :) .. I wouldn't mind doing this again.. if anyone sets it up I'll be in.. :P Considering I just spent the whole night tonight drawing cthulhuie Critters.. I think I could find the time to doodle up a pic for someone :).. As long as my name at least gets put in the hat this time.. I mean some one not finishing is one thing.. Not even being given a partner is like a guaranteed bummer..
2007-12-11 [SilverFire]: Do we know who didn't submit art? we could always ban them from entering this year. Of course, we'd still get new entrants who might not submit their art - so how about we have a team of 5 or so 'reserve' artists who don't mind doing an extra piece of art just in case it happens? I know I wouldn't mind doing it...
2007-12-11 [SilverFire]: AMG! CTHULHU!
2007-12-11 [Anvikit]: or maybe, if everyones up to it.. do a Double swap.. so everyone gets 2 artists.. and 2 pictures.... so the odds are better that you'd at least get one .. but then every artists work load is doubled.. Back ups are nice.. but who's gonna draw for them?
2007-12-11 [SilverFire]: They'll alrady have one drawing, and have drawn one, it's just that in the case that someone doesn't get anything, they'll draw another picture, out of the kindness of their heart. Hell, if no one else wants to do it, I'll do it just myself, because I feel so bad for people when that kind of things happens. ._.
2007-12-11 [The Red Baron]: Question, what if someone isn't versed in the drawn art but wishes to participate?
2007-12-11 [SilverFire]: Was the problem discussed last year? And if so, what solution was reached then?
2007-12-11 [Linderel]: Photos or poems were a go. :)
2007-12-11 [SilverFire]: Then I guess they're a go this year, too. :)
2007-12-11 [The Red Baron]: Just checking if there were new rules this year.
