Another Christmas Meme :-)

Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can't buy more hours. Scientists can't invent new minutes. And you can't save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you've wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow. ~ Denis Waitely

I'm not sure, but I don't think I can get any busier. All I want for Christmas are 48 hour days... please?


Another Christmas Meme from Judy:

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Both, depends on the gift. Bags are awesome for those oddly shaped presents.
2. Real or artificial tree? real -- a decent artificial tree is WAY too expensive. Besides, a real tree is actually better for the environment!
3. When do you put up the tree? The weekend following Thanksgiving.
4. When do you take the tree down? Before New Years Day
5. Do you like eggnog? Ugh, no. And I don't understand why, because I should. But... ugh.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? My "M's Box" -- my SIL made me this great wooden suitcase full of art supplies and had my name engraved on the top. It was the best gift ever. As an adult? My puppy-dog, Bailey.
7. Do you have a nativity scene? One in our living room, and my DD has two in her bedroom.
8. Hardest person to buy for? My husband -- this year, he gave me a list, the website I could buy stuff from and their item numbers. Gotta love it.
9. Easiest person to buy for? my DD -- it's harder to stop buying for her than it is to stop!
10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? All my gifts were given with love... how can I complain about that?
11. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mostly mail.
12. Favorite Christmas Movie? "It's A Wonderful Life" -- I cry every time I watch it.
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I usually start the day after Christmas... this is the first year I wasn't done shopping by the end of summer. Ugh.. I still have stuff to get. I HATE that.
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Yes
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Chocolate -- but, then that's my favorite thing to eat ANY time of the year.
16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? Clear? You mean the white ones? Then, those.
17. Favorite Christmas song? Oh Holy Night
18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? stay home
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
Of course -- On Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Blitzen, on Comet, on Cupid, on Donner and Vixen -- but don't forget Rudolph and Leroy.

What? You've never heard of Leroy? Then click through and enjoy!

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Neither. We have a big red bow with long streamers.
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or Christmas morning? Christmas morning
22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? THE SNOW -- UGH!
23. Do you decorate your tree in any specific theme or color? Nope -- we decorate in early eclectic.
24. What do/did you leave for Santa? Nuthin... we were big meanies! LOL...

If you decide to play, let me know so I can come visit!

LOL @ Leroy and that *^#**#&*) game is SO not made for laptops... I couldn't get any better than 5 lousy seconds!!!

Amy said...

Fun meme! I ran it on my blog too:

Sarita Leone said...

If you figure out how to add hours to the day, will you please let me in on the secret? Please?!

Melissa said...

I would love to find more hours in the day! I actually wrote a short story about that a few years ago and just found it recently. I may put it up on my blog as a Christmas present for readers.

Leroy is very cool for a Redneck Reindeer. *g*

Dru said...

I can't play that game..the man falls immediately.

groovyoldlady said...

"Merry Christmas, Ya'll."

I was squirming through that country music (shiver), but I made it through without any major illness. (The girls loved it.)

If Santa delivered gifts up heah wrapped in the Dixie flag, he'd be a trophy on somebody's wall 'cause we've got our own brand of rednecks in Maine!

Ceri said...

Okay, I borrowed this meme for my blog. :)

Brandy said...

What about Robby the reindeer? *G* If you find a way to make more time, please let me know.
Have a good evening!
