In all seriousness

If you might want to play the sock exchange, email your snail mail address to me at Kate94651@hotmail.com and I'll send you the letter. Otherwise I'm going to have to draft the ladies at work (and my family...hehehe).

I've got two people signed up...Sherri (who is due to give birth this week) and Dawn (hi Dawn, you lurker you).

For those who want to know more...Here are the "rules."

You get a letter that says:
This is a Funky Sock Exchange! Please send a unique pair of Ladies size socks to the person whose name is listed on the number one space below (there are two spaces). Then move my name up to the number one position and put your name in the number two spot. Only your name and my name should be on the list when you sent out the letter. I have enclosed a blank letter for copying. Please fillout the letter and sent it to six friends.

This is not a chain letter
(yes it is). It is just for fun! If you cannot do this within 5 days, let me know so that it will be fair to all those who participate. A manilla envelope should mail the socks nicely. You should receive 36 pairs of socks for the price of one (6*6=36), and it's fun to see the different places your socks will come from. Seldom does anyone drop out, because we can all use funky socks and a smile!

The turnaround time is extremely fast because there are only two names on the list. You should start receiving socks within two weeks. Have fun but remember to contact me if you don't participate.


That's it...that's how it works.

I hate to ask more and more questions Cath, but once we swap with you, do we then have to recruit six participants of our own? I am worried I wouldn't have six people to swap socks with, that's all. :(

I would love to do it Cathy, but I know me, and I doubt I would get the socks out in time. I know it would end up being unfair for people to have to wait for me to send my socks. It sounds fun though!
