Christmas Crap Meme...

As is usual, I was minding my own business, when someone decided that they just had to mess with me. Contagion knew that I would be travelling home, and have limited access to a computer, so the bastard tagged me with a meme...

Here it is...

1.Wrapping paper or gift bags? Newspaper and duct tape... though, bags will work, too. Especially garbage bags.

2.Real tree or artificial? It's definitely real... I've not the ching for any "enhancing" surgery.

3.When do you put up the tree? When I'm excited.

4.When do you take the tree down? When I'm finished, or I think of turnoffs.

5.Do you like eggnog? I love the stuff... with or without booze, egg nog rules.

6.Favorite gift you received as a child? It's a toss up between my Space: 1999 Eagle, and my AM transistor radio. I was one cool kid with that little radio in hand.

7.Do you have a nativity scene? If I do, it's mixed together with my army men.

8.Hardest person to buy for? My brother in law.

9.Easiest person to buy for? My sister.

10.Mail or email Christmas cards? What are these "Christmas card" things?

11.Worst Christmas gift you ever received? A Gottdamned Bible. And, No, it wasn't because it was a Bible. It was because of the fact that it was given to me by my "fun" aunt. I was expecting something else, entirely.

12.Favorite Christmas move? Since The Shining doesn't officially count as a Christmas movie (even though the flipping out part occurs around this time of year), I'd have to go with Die Hard, Christmas Vacation, or Scrooged. Once upon a time, I liked A Christmas Story, but that's long been ruined.

13.When do you start shopping? Heh... um... late.

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

15.Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? My ma's seven layer bars, for sure, but there's many others. Too many others.

16.Clear lights or colored on the tree? Maybe a glow in the dark something, but lights? No wish to be electrocuted.

17.Favorite Christmas song? Heheheh... I've always liked Fear's Christmas carol (sweary bits). And, of course, "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.

18.Travel at Christmas or stay home? I'd prefer to stay at home, but it's pretty obvious that I had to travel just to get to where I'd rather stay.

19.Can you name all of Santa’s Reindeers? Of course... The Brown Dude, Horn Head, Stinky Butt, Spot, Horn Head #2, Lloyd, Poopy, and Horn Head #2... this I memorized from a card my sis sent.

20.Angel on the tree top or a star? Heheheh... either would work, I'm thinking.

21.Open the presents on Christmas ever or morning? We used to do just for our immediate family on Christmas Eve, and then get together with the larger family on Christmas Day. Not anymore...

22.Most annoying thing about this time of year? Definitely the traffic... and the people. And all of that annoying Christmas music.

23.Do you have Jesus in your heart this Christmas? I would suppose so... He's everywhere, right? Though, if you think about it, that could be more than a little disturbing.

24.What would you like for Christmas? Well, even though I've been dropping hints, those are just stocking stuffers. I'd really like for my aunt's business to be sold. And for me to win the lottery.

I shall tag no person, as I am a guy who does not believe in being a nuisance to others. And it's Christmas, after all... why waste your time because some prick tagged you with a meme?


And then there's Shoe... who I never, ever thought would deliberately be a thorn in my side... and now she loves me no more. Damnit.

I'm really shocked that your answer to number 23 didn't have something to do with Self-love. Especially with all the ummm, tree references. :)

Well, at least if you had to travel, it was to a place you wanted to be. *grin*

Merry Christmas!

"dashing through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh, over the fields we go...laughing all the way....OOOHHHH jingle bells jingle bells, jingle all the way"

"its beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go!"

"Chestnuts roastin, on an open fire....
jack frost nipping at your nose
yuletide carols beig sung by a choir!"

Merry Christmas...

Eggnog w/ Frangelico is the BEST.

Merry Christmas!

Damn I am slow today, it took the third tree reference before I got it. Sheesh - am I THAT out of practice? (don't answer that)

Merry Christmas, blog-bro -- enjoy being home :-)

Wow, only you could put a perverted spin on this! ;-)
