Sarah tagged me for some Holiday Fun...that's the first time I've ever been tagged for anything. Cool.
Holiday: Christmas or New Years? Christmas
Cookies: Sugar or Gingerbread? sugar cookies with green or red sugar on them
Decorations: Santa or Snowmen? I like vintage Santas
Reindeer or Elves? Reindeer
Colors: Red or Green? both
Colors: Gold or Silver? Silver
Tree Topper: Star or Angel? Star
Stocking Stuffer: Fruit or Candy? reese's peanut butter cups and my Mom always put a tangerine in the toe
Tree: Real or Artificial? I love the smell of real trees but I have a thing for those silver artificial ones and someday I will have one of those.
Cartoons: Charlie Brown or Rudolph? Charlie Brown
Movie: It's a Wonderful Life or A Christmas Carol? Can I say both on this one? I always cry when the pharmacist boxes George's ears because his son died in the war and he's crazy with grief. Aargh, I can't take it. But A Christmas Carol with George C. Scott as Scrooge is also amazing. Also, I'd like to add...it's not Christmas without a viewing of Christmas Vacation. (Snot, roll over and let Uncle Clark scratch your belly! I shouldn't, my hands are chapped.)
Stocking Stuffer: Jewelry or Gift Card? gift card!
Christmas List: Naughty or Nice? usually naughty
Drink: Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot Chocolate
Holiday Ghost: Past, Present, or Future? I like Marley's ghost the best.
Vacation Spot: North Pole or Winter Wonderland? winter wonderland.
Holiday Song: Jingle Bells or Silver Bells? Silver Bells
Holiday Song: Silent Night or O' Holy Night? What about Strong Bad singing O Holy Crap!
More Fun: Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? Christmas Eve - We have brunch with family and friends and I love it. Also, the late service on Christmas Eve with all the singing - love that.
Lights: Clear or Multi-Colored? I could go either way on this.
Ornaments: Bulbs or Bows? Bulbs...mercury glass ones, please.
Tree Decor: Ribbon, Popcorn, or Garland? I think when I get my silver tree, I won't need any of those. Just vintage ball ornaments.
Gifts: Wrapping Paper or Gift Bags? I think wrapping paper looks nicer, but sometimes I'm a little lazy.
Better To: Give or Receive? I like both.
I tag Alison. And if Jocelyn sees this, she is tagged too. Really, only a couple people ever read this thing. I havn't made that many cyber-friends yet.
Working on scrapping my Baltimore photos. I hadn't started scrapping yey when I lived there so my photos aren't that numerous or that great. I feel like I have very little by which to remember a huge, important chunk of my life. But I have this photo pf the Billster and Kenny. And it truly is one of my favorite pictures ever, despite the blurriness and the dorky facial expressions. I miss these guys a lot lately. I havn't talked to them in years. I'm not sure where they are anymore. And that makes me sad. Because they were a big part of my life. They treated me like a sister and I loved sharing a house with them. I miss Bill's excessive use of the F-bomb, I miss Kenny's "wanna be startin something" dance, I miss them bickering like an old married couple over the proper use of kitchen equipment, I miss their (declined) offers to beat the crap out of Graeme, I miss their dorky dinnertime discussions about the acidity of certain protons in an organic transformation. So Bill, Kenny, wherever you are...merry effing Christmas. 'Cause I know that's what Bill would say to me.
