Just a fun little meme

Bigger post still in the works. For now enjoy this little meme.

I got this from my Big Sis.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Paper.
2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial. Real trees are so sappy.
3. When do you put up the tree? Growing up we put up the tree on my Mom's birthday. I think we will have to change that to Tank's Birthday now.
4. When do you take the tree down? I like to take it down well after Christmas. Superwoman likes to have here living room back after the big day. We compromise somewhere in the middle.
5. Do you like eggnog? Yum. (If you mix it with a little OJ it tastes like a really strong Orange Julius)
6. Favorite gift received as a child? My big wheel and my first Lego set stand out. With the Big Wheel the parents awoke to me stuck in a corner (I was 3 or 4) bumping into the wall backing up a bit then plowing into it again. And when I was 7 or 8 I got a Lego set. I loved that thing.
7. Hardest person to buy for? No person in particular, but trying to remember to get everyone-who-is-special something can be taxing. I guess that is a good problem to have.
8. Easiest person to buy for? The Kids, I never grew up. I can instantly make myself think like a four year old and a six year old. The hard part is thinking like an adult.
9. Do you have a nativity scene? Not personally, but Superwoman loves Nativities, so we have three or four up in the house.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Cards what cards? Whaddiya mean its December 17th already!? Well you'll get your cards late. If I get that far :( I sux.
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? I didn't like getting clothes when I was a kid. But I didn't get all pissed off about it. I just found the toys.
12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Probably Muppet Christmas Carol followed by National Lampoons Christmas Vacation and White Christmas.
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Usually we start and are mostly done in September.
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas Present? White Elephant Gift exchanges rule.
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Sushi.
16. Lights on the tree? The more the better, a strand of white and as many color strands as the tree will hold.
17. Favorite Christmas song? Little Drummer Boy & I heard the Bells on Christmas Day.
18. Do you travel or stay home at Christmas? We drive around 100 miles or more Christmas day. But we start out and end up at home.
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Rudolph the LED nosed reindeer, wazzit, hoozit, dancer, prancer, venison, deer jerky and blitzen.
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Star.
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Morning, and it would be afternoon if I could convince the kids to wait that long :)
22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Finals
23. What theme or color are you using? Grey and Grey (j/k I'm not really red-green color blind)
24. Favorite for Christmas dinner. Ham, Stuffing, Potatoes.
25. What do you want for Christmas this year? Time with the family and friends.

My tree is black and silver this year.

I have the only emo Goth tree in Alabama. It's fake, though, so it won't set itself on fire or anything.
