Christmas Meme

Bloggless reader Smokepoles sent me this meme via e-mail. Hey, he called it a meme, and says I have to do it. I’m not sure where he found it at, but since he actually knows where I live, I’m going to do it.

1.Wrapping paper or gift bags? Bags, I can’t wrap a gift to save my life.

2.Real tree or artificial? Real, I like fire hazards. It makes life more interesting.

3.When do you put up the tree? After I buy it.

4.When do you take the tree down? When I get around to it. ( last year it was Superbowl weekend)

5.Do you like eggnog? Hell yea, especially when it’s real eggnog with brandy.

6.Favorite gift you received as a child? My official red rider carbine action two-hundred shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time.

7.Do you have a nativity scene? Sure do, every time I tell the boys Santa’s on the roof they run outside in all their naivety. Er, wait, that said nativity, nope.

8.Hardest person to buy for? The wife, she hates everything I get her. Especially the fish-net stockings and Santa’s little ho outfit.

9.Easiest person to buy for? Clone. Every thing he sees he wants.

10.Mail or email Christmas cards? Pffftttt… that’s what the wife is for. she fills them out, addresses them and sticks them in the mail.

11.Worst Christmas gift you ever received? A home enema kit. God I wish I was joking about that.

12.Favorite Christmas move? A Christmas Carol with Patrick Stewart.

13.When do you start shopping? When ever the wife does it.

14.Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Uh… no?

15.Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? My wife’s cookies. Oh and the ones she bakes too.

16.Clear lights or colored on the tree? What’s with the racial questions? They preferred to be called spectrally enhanced lights. Since I’m a diverse and sensitive kind of guy, I do have spectrally enhanced lights on my tree.

17.Favorite Christmas song? What ever one I start humming in July to annoy people.

18.Travel at Christmas or stay home? Stay home, and if I had my choice that’s what I’d do. But I have to travel all over Rockford visiting my family.

19.Can you name all of Santa’s Reindeers? Yes I can, and I know them correctly as Dunder and Blixem not Donner and Blitzen.

20.Angel on the tree top or a star? We have a star now, Ktreva got upset the first year we were together by the way I kept jamming the angel on top of the tree over and over. She felt it was a little… disturbing and obscene.

21.Open the presents on Christmas ever or morning? Both. Extended family on Christmas Eve, from the immediate family Christmas morning.

22.Most annoying thing about this time of year? The people shopping. If only they would let me use a club when I go shopping.

23.Do you have Jebus in your heart this Christmas? What are you trying to imply? I’m telling you T1G and I are just friends; it's platonic. There's no man love there, I don't care what he implies!

24.What would you like for Christmas? My wife wearing last years Christmas gift…. With those black leather knee high heeled boots… and telling me she’ll do what ever I want. Which will start with her unzipping…. You probably don’t want to know the rest.

That’s it. According to the instructions I’m supposed to tag five people with this. Since I haven’t been tagged with a meme in a long, long time, (since April) I really don’t owe anyone, so I guess I’m going to be opening the doors of payback here.

So here we go:

A) Blog momma-sis Boudicca of Boudicca’s Voice. Just for neglecting me.

2) T1G of Drunken Wisdom, I guess I have to give him a chance to redeem himself.

D) Richmond of One for the Road. Just because I haven’t linked to her in a while.

4) Michelle of Quality Weenie, Because she’s beating me in Pick ‘Ems.

E) Tammi of Tammi’s World. Since she’s been stuck up and blowing me off in Pick ‘Ems.

12.Favorite Christmas move? A Christmas Carol with Patrick Stewart.

I had tickets to a live performance of A Christmas Carol by Patrick Stewart. Correction - I still have a ticket (unused) to a live performance of A Christmas Carol by Patrick Stewart.

I was about to leave work and my brother called to ask if he could use my jacket to go Christmas shopping downtown. Without thinking, I said "sure."

I got home, got showered and ready for my date, walked to the door and reached for my keys and my jacket... The one that had the tickets in the zippered breast-pocket. The one that my brother was wearing somewhere in-town...

I was told it was an awesome performance.

Shit. :-P

It is done. You will be LUCKY to get coal this Christmas! ;-)

Who the everloving fuck got you a home enema kit?

Did I do that and forget about it? Sounds like something I'd do....

And just when I thought I didn't have a thing to post about...

Lemme get the Cranberry Orange Bread into the oven and I'll get right on it. :-)
