Are you deleting the right thread, Helen?

Reading those nominationcomments made we wonder if it might be possible to see the nomination of the person we're sending gifts to. If I've got the person who never buys anything for herself I want to buy for her not her children, iyswim.

Hi Soloman,
That's lovely idea, might hinder the anonymity of the MNer, but one to think about for next year...
Not logistically doable for this year though IYKWIM. <gulp>

Darn. I knew someone would notice. blush

Doigts de saucisses, as they'd say on Mamanset...

Right, late to the party (as usual) and have been directed to this thread from the uncharitable one in AIBU. Anyway, can I still nominate someone or is it too late? Also, will the poster whom I intend to nominate find out who I am? I wouldn't want them to but would like them to know the reason. Thanks.

Hi GrannyRat,

The matches for this year have all been done and sent out <the elves are still recovering from the party>
You are warmly welcome to look out for the MN Christmas Appeal next year, pop it in your diary now for November, and you could be the first to nominate!

And no, no one need ever know it was you........

Thats a point - does the nominee receive the reason?
Cos I'm not sure mine was worded very well... blush

Still, never mind, have ordered the presents for my receiver and it should be there in a few days <rubs hands>

Sandy, so many of us were utterly surprised and delighted and shocked to be nominated... I would really love to know why someone nominated me.

BlameItOnTheCuervo Thu 29-Nov-12 17:06:41

me too Jacks.

Jacksmania Thu 29-Nov-12 17:12:17

I had a really creepy dream about my ribs popping out through my chest last night shock. In my dream I thought "shit, better go to the hospital" but then detoured to shower and do my hair hmmWTF in this disgusting bathroom where the windows were crawling with bugs.

Jacksmania Thu 29-Nov-12 17:13:03

Shit!!!!! That was not supposed to be on this thread.
Sorry blush

However I also don't want to dream about anal anything!!! grin

Jacksmania Thu 29-Nov-12 17:15:26

Is there a link to last years comments thread please?

Jacksmania Thu 29-Nov-12 17:29:23

Do you need the link to gussiegrips's website, Cuervo? grin

SlightlySuperiorPeasant Thu 29-Nov-12 17:38:07

My nominee is on here... and no, I'm not telling who you are or why I nominated you grin but you do deserve it and I'm feeling all twinkly to know that you're pleased.

BlameItOnTheCuervo Thu 29-Nov-12 17:40:56

yeah, quite possibly. although, I do have a very attractive cervix. or so I was told by the nurse who did my last smear.

and the one who inserted my coil.

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Sun 02-Dec-12 13:45:16

I've received a present! How do I thank the donor? And the nominee? Thank you, thanks . 'Twas a crap year, but still not sure I deserved it.
