Christmas Meme


Someone e-mailed me this Christmas meme and I thought if was fitting in this the mad rush to December 25. Of course, I left off the part about sending it off to 28 friends in the next 30 seconds or your eyebrows will fall out. I'm nice like that.....


1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Both, and lets not forget the bag it came in

2. Real tree or Artificial?

Artificial - I am allergic to pine and those needles, who needs to deal with that?

3. When do you put up the tree? take the tree down?

Put it up sometime after Thanksgiving and take it down hopefully before my birthday (Feb)

4. Do you like eggnog?

ummmm...... Yes with lots of spiced rum..... hello

5. Favorite gift received as a child?

Malibu Barbie, Skipper & Ken

6. Hardest person to buy for?

Mother in law (what do you get the woman who has a collection of everything wanted or known to mankind?)

7. Do you have a nativity scene?

It fell apart about 4 years ago - so not anymore

8. Mail or email Christmas cards?

Mail (late) email some

9. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?

Re-gifted sweater set from 1955 (it still had the tags and closet stains)

10. Favorite Christmas Movie?

Christmas Vacation and Christmas Story

11. When do you start shopping for Christmas?

I start browsing in October but never get started with the buying until about 12/20 - my SSS is seriously late too.

12. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?

No, but my mother has re-gifted a present she gave to me. She took it back, wrapped it again and gave it to someone else. Does that count?

13. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Sweet potato cassarole. Then my almost stepsisters reminded me of Bourbon Slush. I totally forgot about Bourbon Slush. It was seriously yummy. But I was a mere 17 year old so any alcohol was yummy back then. It could've been my youth.

14. Lights on the tree?

Is that a serious question? There are people with no lights on their tree? That seems like it would be against the law.

15. Favorite Christmas song?

Silent Night

16. Travel at Christmas or stay home?

I love to travel because then I can skip the decorating, which I never have time for anyway. And it appears from the last month, I am quite the traveller.

17. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's?

If there are 8 plus Rudolph I can. Oh, you wanted me to do it now?

Dasher,Dancer,Prancer,Vixen,Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen . Easy, peasy - its not like you were asking me about the dwarves - those are hard.

18. Angel on the tree top or a star? Star

19. Open the presents Christmas eve or Christmas day?

Christmas Day - who would open the presents Christmas Eve? That is just torture for poor little kids. Here open your toys and then get your ass in bed. Besides, doesn't Santa come on Christmas Eve? If you are up opening presents, when does he come.

20. Most annoying thing about this time of the year?

the days are short and the elves theives are out.

21. Favorite ornament theme or color?
Ornaments collected over the years and currently have a strong snowman thing.

22. Favorite for Christmas dinner?
Smoked turkey

23. What do you want for Christmas this year?
Wii and a new laptop.

So, if you choose to participate in this the Christmas meme, let me know and I will link you up. I would try Mr. Linky but don't have time to figure it all out.

BTW - I am now riding the Rockin' Roller Coaster. Wooooohoooo! **UPDATE** that was a total lie, the line was 2 hours long, as if.

  1. oh this so cool Ima steal errr snag it I will linky back to you of course ;-)

  2. This looks like fun, I'll give it a whirl!

  3. OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHH...shhh don't tell, but my husband and I got the Wii for our kids for Christmas. We are SOOO excited. Um, yes, WE are excited. They haven't ever mentioned one, but it gives US something to entertain ourselves with! Yippee!

  4. I saw this at Georgie's Decisionally Challenged and am planning to secretly steal it for my own (insert evil laugh) err...with my own answers.

    Great blog!

  5. I love that you want a WII for Christmas!!! So cool!...But you have to get the Wii Fit! It is taking over my life! :)

    How were the holidays?

  6. I'll play, but it'll be sometime tomorrow before I get to it.

  7. I like this! Love your answers. My MIL says lights that blink on the tree make her nervous. Is it bad that I always make sure ours blink?

  8. Oh, and I love your first answer, can I steal it off you!!

  9. Love your list! My MIL is the hardest to buy for too, but not because she has everything. It's because she really doesn't like anything. The woman has no interests! Weird.

    My kids open a gift on Christmas Eve, but only pjs. I think that's pretty typical.

  10. @ Debbie - hahahaha, only if you like to make your MIL nervous.
    @ Marie6 - steal away.

  11. I wanted to stop by and remind you that the deadline to ship the Secret Santa Gift is December 10th. Please send Georgie or I a email amydoo @ sbcglobal . net and give us the Delivery Confirmation Number. Gifts are being received as we speak so you can check out the posts on our blogs to see the latest. If you have received a SSS gift please leave either of us a comment and just write received in it somewhere.

  12. Oooo, I've got to admit, I don't really know what a bourbon slush consists of, but it sounds so good right now (yes, it's before 1pm in the afternoon. Don't judge me).
    PS. Your blog reminds me of my honeymoon, the shells and palm trees and all. Don't worry, it's a good thing.
    PSS: thanks for visiting my blog :)


Comments please.
The good, the bad, the ugly.
