1. Do you believe in miracles?
I do. Absolutely. I've seen them.2. What's a recent fad you admit to trying?
I tweeted semi-regularly for about a year. But I don't really have the patience or time to keep up with it.3. Peppermint--are you a fan? If so, what's your favorite food or beverage containing peppermint?
I love peppermint! I go through a ton of peppermint gum, and I like Ghirardelli's peppermint bark too.4. Break the ice, on thin ice, as cold as ice (emotionally, not literally)...which phrase have you run into most recently? Explain.
I watch entirely too much American Pickers: "break the ice" is way in the lead here. By the way, can someone explain to me when and why we started saying "cold as hell"? Because, yeah....5. Have you ever broken or spilled something in someone else's home? Still friends?
Yeah, and boy ain't that a bitch? This has never been the cause of a broken friendship, however.6. 'Tis the week before Christmas...are you feeling more like Buddy the Elf or the Grinch before his heart grew?
Grinch. Well, not exactly, but I'm not really into the whole Xmas thing at this point.7. Share a favorite quote relating to Christmas.
"There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child." (Erma Bombeck)8. Insert your own random thought here.
We're going to get the tree up and decorated tonight and/or tomorrow. I'm not excited about it, but Sparky's here to help so that will help. I have made inroads on the purchasing of "stuff" as well, so maybe Christmas morning won't be a complete bust. However, I'm trying really hard to be living in the right now, not in the anxiety about Christmas stuff.
