Christmas Sock Exchange

   Just a quick note to anyone interested: I'm hosting a Christmas sock exchange on A Blackbird's Epiphany - it's like a Secret Santa but simpler: buy a pair of Christmas socks and fill one of them with simple Christmas goodies (sweets, tiny gifts, etc) to a rough value of about £10/$15 and send it to your assigned partner. You'll get one in return and it's open worldwide so anyone can participate. You can read more about it here.
   The deadline for sign-ups is October 24th, then there will be a 1 week drop-out period where you can change your mind, but as of November 1st, anyone who has signed up and not dropped out is obligated to participate, and all socks must be posted by November 21st to try to ensure delivery in time for Christmas.
   It's open to anyone, blogger or not, and even if you are a blogger you're not obligated to blog about it.

WoW-Specific Participation Option

   I was considering doing a WoW-specific one but I'm not sure if there would be enough interest among you all or not so I've not bothered. However, if you sign up, let me know if you're a WoW player and if you'd prefer to be partnered with someone similar and I can make a little WoW sub-group. People aren't paired up like 1-2, 2-1, 3-4, 4-3, they're assigned along a line so the person you're sending to isn't the person who is sending to you. It also means that if there's an odd number of participants, no one has to miss out. However, as a WoW player myself (obviously), if only one of you is interested in a WoW-specific partner I can just pair the two of us up instead.
