the meme

1. Wrapping paper or gift bag?
i like to wrap gifts. gift bags have their uses, but for under the tree, paper is best.

2. Real tree or artificial?
both have merit. i like the lack of stepping on/having to vacuum up needles with a fake tho

3. When do you put up your tree?
i don't have a set time. i don't think i'll even get mine up this year

4. Do you like eggnog?

5. Favorite gift received as a child?
i'm not even sure. is that bad? (i think it's just end of the semester brain mush, cuz i can't even think of what i got last year!)

6. Hardest person to buy for?
frère jaque (my brother, john)

7. Easiest person to buy for?
ava. being 2, she's not too picky, and i can always find something she'll like

8. Worst Christmas gift you've ever received?
grandma has a tendency to get or make all of the grandkids something similar. one year she made us quillows. mine was the hot pink one with white polka dots. i was about 13, and was (still am) very anti-pink. she has a tendency to do that sometimes. a lot of my grandma gifts are one of those awful colors that i can't make myself use.

9. Mail or email Christmas cards?
i love getting mail. i also love sending it, but i'm very bad about getting cards out on time.

10. Favorite Christmas movie?
Nailz said, "duh, Nightmare Before Christmas" and i'd have to agree. :)

11. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
i'm a last minute sort of person.

12. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
yes. especially the ones that come from the white elephant exchanges. they usually make the rounds.

13. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
anything homemade. and sunday night toffee. that's one of my favorite recipes

14. White or colored lights?
i like either, if they're done well, and are not uber-tacky

15. Favorite Christmas song?
stille nacht

16. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
i'm sure i could name them, but they wouldn't be the names that everyone else is thinking of. i'm pretty creative sometimes.

17. Angel or Star on top of tree?
i'm not too picky

18. Open presents Christmas Eve or Morning?

19. Most annoying thing about this time of year?
finals week and final projects

20. What I love most about Christmas?
being able to go home and breathe for a bit.
and snow. snow is good. except when i'm driving.

out of the void

so, i'm at work. on a saturday. two hours early. we all know how much of a morning person i am . the school is supposed to be haveing a recruitment day. the admissions office was supposed to be here at 8am to set up, thus necessitating my being here slightly before that. it's now 8:30, and the only other person i've seen is the one who works for dining services (and does a shitty job of setting up a catering table... the cloth is crooked, and not even under the skirt, but that's a whole new can of worms).
i got here early for this? they had better buy me coffee!
