Post Show Blahs

Ok, I'm happy that Lauren gets to go to Paris (natch) but enduring that post show, especially with Ian teasing me the entire half hour, was like getting a tooth pulled, I thought we were going to find out something salacious, all Lauren's 'big' announcment is that there's more of The Hills in Paris...oy.

My Guilty Pleasure of the last two days...The Hills

I sort of watched absentmindedly this year's season, but then the other night I watched Lauren's recap from her perspective from the past three years, and I kind of liked it; she definitely made some bad choices, and that's part of the (guilty) appeal, I guess. So tonight I'm watching the season finale. And I don't know if anyone caught a spoof of that dumb-as-a-brick post Audrina and her bf of one second, Justin, done by James Franco and the girl from That 70s show, that was funny!

Holiday Meme

A Holiday Meme

Scary, Roe, many of my answers are exactly the same, so those I left as is!

1.) Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot chocolate... no question.

2.) Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Santa wraps them very nicely at first, and then it becomes a mission to just get the damned things covered in paper of some sort.

3.) Colored lights on tree/house or white? Colored!

4.) Do you hang mistletoe? No, but then again, I don't need mistletoe as motivation to smooch loved ones!

5.) When do you put your decorations up? About a week or so before Christmas, we go with Ian's parents to buy our trees! Nothing beats the smell of a fresh tree in the home.

6.) What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? I'm a traditionalist; turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing... it's Thanksgiving part deux.

7.) Favorite Christmas memory as a child? Getting a hand-held Casio synthesizer from my grandad that I'd wanted.

8.) When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I still believe!

9.) Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Usually we do a gift swap Christmas Eve with my mother in law's side of the family, so a little bit.

10.) How do you decorate your Christmas tree? My favorite ones are these pewter ornaments we received from Ian's Uncle Peter & Aunt Patti years ago, with the story of "T'was the Night Before Christmas,"on them, along with any ornaments Amanda made.

11.) Snow! Love it or Dread it? Love snow, dread the slush that follows shortly thereafter.

12.) Can you ice skate? I haven't since high school. I still love roller-skating, though!

13.) Do you remember your favorite gift? I'd have to say the keyboard was great, along with 2XL! (Now I'm really dating myself, a la 8 track tapes!) And Atari, of course! I spent many blizzard days playing Berzerk!

14.) What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Being surrounded by family and friends. It's like the one time a year you can tell your friends how much you love them without sounding sappy.

15.) What is your favorite holiday desert? All desserts are fair game here, pumpkin, apple pie, cheese cake, pecan pie, pudding pie, anything with a buttery crust!

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Decorating our tree and drinking hot chocolate with tunes on; going to the holiday shows at school; our Pizza w/Santa event at school, where Ian and his brother have helped Santa over the years. This gets me every time.

17.) What tops your tree? Actually on a mission this year to get something new in the star family. I think.

18.) Which do you prefer giving or receiving? Giving!

19.) What is your favorite Christmas Song? Everytime I hear the Peanuts' gang sing "Christmas Time Is Here" I get weepy.

21.) Favorite Christmas Movie? "A Christmas Carol," probably with Albert Finney best, with Patrick Stewart is good also. I've also seen live w/Frank Langella and others, love to read it, pretty much any version.

22.) What do you leave for Santa? Cookies & milk.
