A Christmas Meme…

A post about the roadtrip to follow, but for this evening, a meme created by WIGSF, stolen with love from Miss Ash….

1.What do you really want for Christmas but you know nobody will get it for you? I want an iPod! But I know that won’t happen…in the realms of reality, I’d really like some cute slouch-around-the-house pyjamas, but I don’t think anyone will think of that!

2.What do you not want for Christmas but you know that somebody will get it for you? I’m grateful for all my gifts – I’m lucky enough to have friends with great taste!

3.When do you open your gifts (Christmas Eve or Christmas morning)?We open our gifts on Christmas morning! And as this will be the first year sans stockings (*sniff*), we’re going to get up and have breakfast and get dressed and everything. I might make mimosas!

4.Do you prefer gifts wrapped or in gift bags?I just like gifts!

5.Did you regift anything this year? Nope, but I have brought a lot of foodie gifts that my generous pupils gave to me to share with the fam.

6.What’s your favourite Christmas movie? It’s a tie between ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ and ‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’ for me.

7.What’s your favourite Christmas TV special? Father Ted!

8.Do you like egg nog? I have never tried it! Is that wrong?

9.Real tree or fake tree, which do you prefer? Fake at the moment – because I don’t spend the big day chez moi, a real tree would be a tad cumbersome!

10.Would you actually use one of those fireplace DVDs if you don’t have a fireplace? Er….no. I do love that (apparently) there’s a channel in NY that plays that log burning thang 24 hours a day though!

11.Are you sick of Christmas music yet? Nope. Love it!

12.Are you getting up early to wait in line to do some Boxing Day shopping? We’re going en famille to the beautiful city of Inverness – we usually go later, but because my sis’s boyfriend is flying in (to the airport at Inverness) on Boxing Day and I’m scarpering earlier than usual after the festivities, we’ve moved it up.

13.When was the last time you sat on Santa’s lap? Hehehehehehehehe.

Of course I’ve been a good girl this year!

    I don’t quite understand why the iPod is still such a much desired gift. Every electronic company in the world is currently manufacturing mp3 players but that danged iPod still has some sort of cultural hold on our society.I got somebody an iPod this year for Christmas and then I got the best thank you possible, a really big smile that did not at all looked forced.Happy Christmas!
