I haven't done a meme it ages it seems. I happened upon this Christmas Meme over at freakgirl, and thought I'd give it a shot.
Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Wrapping paper. I get a bit Martha Stewart about gift wrapping I have to say. It's the gay badge I really excelled at.
Real tree or Artificial?
When do you put up the tree?
I feel really invalidated by the fact that you aren't listening to me. Neither.
When do you take the tree down?
You know, this is getting a little passive aggressive if you ask me. What, I'm like some reindeer murdering Grinch or something if I don't have a tree?
Do you like eggnog?
Blech. I'm lactose intolerant, and I couldn't face the thought of any sort of Veggnog, or whatever.
Favorite gift received as a child?
The box set of Narnia books by C.S.Lewis.
Do you have a nativity scene?
No, only room for one Mary in my house, and guess who that is.
Hardest person to buy for?
My oldest sister, who has mobility and dexterity issues.
Easiest person to buy for?
Me. It's one of the first gifts I usually get.
Mail or email Christmas cards?
Mail. Email? Really? People do that? That's a little low energy don't you think?
Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
Crabs, from memory.
Favorite Christmas Movie?
"Miracle on 34th Street" or "It's a Wonderful Life" tie. Closely followed by "The Family Stone" on account of the cute gay couple, Diane Keaton etc.
When do you start shopping for Christmas?
Too late usually.
Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
You know, I don't think I ever have.
Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
Fruit mince pies.
Clear lights or colored on the tree?
Screw you, you know!? I mean, really. Get. Over. It. About. The. Tree. You want one Mr It's-Not-A-Christmas-Without-A-Tree, YOU do it.
Favorite Christmas song?
Probably "White Christmas" sung by Bing, oh and anything that isn't on the Boney M Christmas Album.
Travel at Christmas or stay home?
Sadly, travel. I always go to the mountain versus it comes to me. I enjoy it when I'm there, but it adds like $300 to the cost of Christmas for me. (Ouch.)
Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Um... Randolph. Boozer? Karen Blitzen? I don't know, whatever.
Angel on the tree top or a star?
I am done talking about this.
Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?
Morning. Just how impatient are you people?
Most annoying thing about this time of year?
The whole 'Christmas tree guilt trip' apparently.
Favorite ornament theme or color?
Favorite for Christmas dinner?
Traditional, you know, the whole English roast dinner experience. With Yorkshire pudding.
What do you want for Christmas this year?
Hmmm. Nice yarn. Book vouchers. And from the realm of the improbable, a new laptop. Hey, a boy can dream, right?
