Christmas meme

It’s about that time…let’s break out the Christmas meme!


1.What do you really want for Christmas but you know nobody will get it for you?

Last year I put “an iPod”. I have one of those now 🙂. This year I’d really like a cosy dressing gown (perfect for cold winter evenings and mornings) and cuddles (I should get them, they’ll just be a bitty delayed) and time with the people I care about (WIN! I have loads of that coming up in the next few weeks!)

.

2.What do you not want for Christmas but you know that somebody will get it for you?

Unless any of my friends decide to get me marmite or a Paris Hilton biography, we’re fine. I’m pretty easy to buy for I think – I like shiny stuff, fun stuff, food stuff, wine, books, movies….


3.When do you open your gifts (Christmas Eve or Christmas morning)?

Christmas morning, around 9ish. I may have bucks fizz again, because that was genius last year!


4.Do you prefer gifts wrapped or in gift bags?

Wrapped, pleased. I LOVE unwrapping presents!

5.Did you regift anything this year?

I don’t tend to, but many of the chocs and the wine I’ve been gifted will be shared with friends and family!


6.What’s your favourite Christmas movie?

Where to start? ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’, ‘Love, Actually’, ‘Die Hard’, ‘Elf’ and ‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’ all do it for me.

7.What’s your favourite Christmas TV special?

Father Ted & Doctor Who! And on DVD I love the West Wing Christmas eps!

8.Do you like egg nog?

I have never tried it! Is that wrong?

9.Real tree or fake tree, which do you prefer?

As it’s just me and I travel a lot over the holiday, fake. I LOVE real trees though.


10.Would you actually use one of those fireplace DVDs if you don’t have a fireplace?

Hahaha, no. On my tiny 14 inch TV it would look uber-tragic!


11.Are you sick of Christmas music yet?

No, I love the stuff. I have hours and hours of it on my computer!

12.Are you getting up early to wait in line to do some Boxing Day shopping?

Not this year I think – I have plans for a long lie, a long walk, and then ,hopefully, a long evening in the pub with friends 🙂.


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

I actually can’t recall!



Christmas is well and truly on its way 🙂!

    Is this the Christmas meme I wrote last year? It is, isn’t it? Wow. I can’t believe this thing lasted a whole year.

    Is there a Paris Hilton biography? I shudder to think there is. I love Elf! “I just like to smile, smiling’s my favorite!”

    Thank you for commenting on my dog in snow photo! I think it is a little wrong that you haven’t tried eggnog. I like the soynog. 😉

    Good list. Eggnog is so good, but in moderation…

    No, it’s not wrong that you’ve never tried eggnog – it’s yucky stuff 🙂

    >"And on DVD I love the West Wing Christmas eps!"The missus got me season 5 of West Wing on DVD for Christmas, so we spent a few hours cozy in bed watching episodes.As for Christmas movies, the wife and I always watch "The Ref" before dealing with the family. It really prepares us for the craziness. "Mary, gag your Gramma."
