12. What are your two favorite tv shows?
13. Do you solemly swear that you won't punk out on your pal? If for some unknown reason you DO punk out you will e-mail with your plight (so your pal can be taken care of) and then resign yourself to being called out and ridiculed for your lack of punk pal skills? (Two yes answers are required to join.)

So after you e-mail that to sunne(at)rmi.net -- and yes, it will hit my spam filter, but I will search through find them and reply back when I have your e-mail in my hot little hands -- wait for the questionaire to be posted on March 1st. There are lots of surprises that are in store for those who play and hopefully no more un-punk postings about rules..........

To keep things exciting...

For this round of the PRGE, I have decided to run a contest a month. There will be two contests for everyone to participate in, if you choose. The contests will be posted on the first of the month and end on the 15th of the month. The winners for these contests will be drawn out of a hat. Each will have a punk or knitting related prize.

The final contest will be a best pal contest. This one will be mixed up a little from the way it is usually run. You can be nominated as a spoiler (best punk pal) or as a spoilee (punk pal who made you want to spoil them more), there will be at least two prizes.

This round everyone will be an author on the PRGE blog. This way the contest entries can be posted on the PRGE blog or post a link to your blog to let me know that you have decided to play. I am also asking that you post your gifties on the PRGE blog with your thank you to your pal, or you can post a link to the thank you entry on your blog. This way everyone gets to see the cool punk packages that will be traded!! And even though it is not very punk, receiving a thank you for a package that is sent is very important!!

If you have any suggestions for the contests, I would love to hear them!!

Hello and Welcome to the second rendition of the Punk Rock Gift Exchange!

I would like to start by sending out a huge thank you to our last Hostesses With The Mostest-es, Rachel and Che for doing a great job with the last exchange! And for beginning this little shindig! I will be attempting to fill their large shoes!!

I would love to hear your feedback from the last exchange, so we can make this one the best one yet. If you have any ideas, you can either leave them in the feedback or send me an e-mail at sunne at rmi dot net. (Do not leave negative feedback in the comments, if you must say something negative, send it in an e-mail.) I will be limiting this swap to 50 participants - provided that many people want to play. I am planning on having a couple contests throughout this PRGE, so if you have any suggestions of contests you would like to see, let me know about those as well!

February 1st, I will have the rules posted, this blog up to speed, and start taking sign ups! Sign ups will close March 1st, and the swap will run from March 15th to June 15th. Please only sign up for this swap if you want follow through on your committment!! Yes, in a very un-punk way, this is a committment. All deadbeats will be throughly flogged, kicked-out and never allowed to participate again!!

Now, have a great weekend and get the f@ck out!!
