The leaves of Earth's northern hemisphere relax their frail grip, spinning to the ground and riding away upon the wind. The cold hand of winter creeps to the south.

Miles above, the greatest scientific instrument ever wrought by the hands of humanity drifts in its endless circle, untouched by the changing of the seasons.



But something has caught the great cyclops's mechanical eye...

From somewhere in the infinite cosmos, an object approaches. At a great distance, it appears to spin, its strange surface reflecting a sparkle of red and green light.



Before the first of the slumbering scientists have rubbed the sleep from their eyes, the object is upon us, slamming into the atmosphere over the north pole.



The object's arrival can only mean one thing...



It's Secret Santa time!

We're using the website again this year (as soon as Cool Mark updates it), so keep an eye open for a post from him. To keep things simple, we're not adding any rules to prevent people from getting the same person as last year, so it might happen.

For now, decide on a codename and start throwing together a list of suggestions for your eventual Santa. Amazon wishlists work well, but are by no means required. As usual, subterfuge is encouraged (bonus for working with the theme).

The updated site was sent to John yesterday, just want to test out some changes on Lain and to make sure the email is not just a continuous line of text.

However, I think I forgot to put my shirt size, which is XXL.

I believe we'll cut registration off at midnight this Saturday, December 5th, and try to get the emails out right away after that. Please post here when you register, in case we can get everything rolling faster than that.


(Also, registered!)

John and I can see who has registered. So it's not super necessary to post here, but please feel free to do so.

I thought it might encourage stragglers to register.

Alex and Megan said they'd like to be in on this, I wanted to ask what you guys think before agreeing. Thoughts?
