stealing from a co-worker

OK, this is going to be a lazy ass blog today, but I had to share.

I work with this really awesome woman who has the best sense of humor and can make just about ANYthing funny.

The following was posted on her profile on a social networking site which will remain anonymous in order to protect the innocent.  Or my co-worker.  Or both.  Or something.

Have a great weekend!!

"You know the drill. Substitute your own answers! Or, mock me thoroughly in comment form for posting this at all! It's your choice really.

I didn't tag anyone because it only lets you do 25 people and I didn't want to make anyone feel left out.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Dried seaweed, it's biodegradable! And stinky! Really deflects the peekers.

2. Real tree or Artificial?
I reject your realitree and substitute my own. (OMG THAT WAS SO DUMB.)

3. When do you put up the tree?
When I get tired of it mocking me for my laziness.

4. When do you take the tree down?
When I get tired of it mocking me for my laziness. (My tree & I have a complex relationship.)

5. Do you like eggnog?
Yes, with rum preferably!

6. Favorite gift received as a child?
The gift of a family history and memories, which has led to me creating the same for my daughter. HOLY CRAP WAS THAT SAPPY OR WHAT????

7. Hardest person to buy for?
Boys. They buy themselves everything!

8. Easiest person to buy for?
Me! I always seem to know what I want. It's like a miracle.

9. Do you have a nativity scene?
Not on me, no, but I know where you can find one...

10. Mail or email Christmas cards?
I prefer skywriting myself, but it's a personal choice!

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received -
Anything that's been given to me has been appreciated, even if only for the thought of giving me something!

12.Favorite Christmas movie?
Home for the Holidays; there's something so inherently dysfunctional about family holidays, but it's a comforting dysfunction.
Oh, and White Christmas, it always makes me cry at the end. Shut up!

Anything store-bought ends up coming from Amazon the month before the holiday, otherwise I end up hiding the stuff away, and then I can't find it again! I suspect gnomes in that regard. Other than that I end up making most of my gifts (it's not CHEAP it's THOUGHTFUL so there).

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
I admit I have... I just didn't have any use for that pair of parachute pants.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
Anything made by someone else, but in particular cookies. I'm not a cookie person, but December 10th rolls around and suddenly I have this impossible craving for anything with a thumbprint or royal icing on it.

16. Lights on the tree?
Yes, and I've always secretly wished I had the nerve to make them sync up to the music in my head, but I figured it would only confuse people.

17. Favorite Christmas song?
Mele Kalikimaka!

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home?
Depends on the circumstance, really... are you cooking? Then I'm coming over.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's?
Spanky & Alfalfa & Nick & Nora & Sid & Nancy & Fred & Ginger & John & Marsha. And Rudolph.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star?
A star, although which one depends on their fee that year. Last year it was Amy Winehouse, which got awkward during dinner.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?
Usually family gifts on Christmas Eve, and then I make

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? 

Malls. I really can't even be a smartass about that, I just don't get near them if at all possible.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color?
Handmade is my favorite!

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner?
Chicken Enchiladas. No I'm not kidding.

25. What do you want for Christmas this year?
Last year I wanted an electric tea kettle, and got one thanks to my whining. An Electric Boogaloo tea kettle would have been even cooler, but I think they stopped making those.

26. Who is most likely to respond to this?
To what? Oh, THIS? Hm... You?

27. Who is least likely to respond to this?
Taylor Swift. She's busy."
