Because I’m sick and snot is flooding my brain…

A meme that I’ve seen all over the place, but first at Hotfessional’s.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper, unless the gift is just too awkward to wrap. This year I managed to use both wrapping paper and a bag on one gift! That’s skill…

2. Real tree or artificial? Real at my house. I still love the smell more than I hate the mess.

3. When do you put up the tree? When we get around to buying one.

4. When do you take the tree down? After New Years

5. Do you like eggnog? Yes, but ONLY with whiskey. LOTS of whiskey.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? I remember a train set that I liked quite a bit. There was also a chemistry set one year that I was really excited about until I tried to use it and was forbidden because I might hurt the carpet. Oh- and one year my grandma gave me a giant cookie-bouquet!

7. Do you have a nativity scene? HA! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! No.

8. Hardest person to buy for? Ugh… My parents.

9. Easiest person to buy for? COLE!

10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? A wee, pink, plastic jewelry box complete with spinning ballerina… WHEN I WAS 17!

11. Mail or email Christmas cards? What’s this? I’m supposed to send CARDS?!

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Spinal Tap!

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Whenever I see something that I think a recipient will especially like.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? No.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Stuff that’s free and full of fat and sugar. If I didn’t buy it, the calories don’t count.

16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? We have colored on the tree, but clear outside.

17. Favorite Christmas song? Most anything by the Squirrel Nut Zippers.

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Stay at home. Though that’s easy since we just live across town from my parents.

19. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer? No, and I don’t plan on learning.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? STAR!! I just got it for 50% off from WalMart!

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? MORNING. I hate opening any the night before.

22. What’s the most annoying thing this time of the year? Grinches.

23. What I love most about Christmas? Finding presents for my friends and family that I can’t wait for them to open.

    Guess I’ll just be returning the music box with spinning ballerina I got you for Christmas.

    Would one with a bellydancer be cool? Yes, it would.

    I pulled my act together this year and sent out Christmas cards…your’s should get there soon.

    While I’m getting a feeling of doubt, I have to ask, was it possible that the jewelry box was supposed to be ironic?

    N- Did I ruin it? I ruined it. Damn. There I go, as always, sticking my dumb foot in my dumb mouth.

    T- If she had been that kind of aunt it would have been much cooler. Alas…
