holidays

Reincarnated from LJ entries past

1. Who was the last person you yelled at?
I don't yell much anymore... But if I had to guess, I'd say my brother.

2. Who was the last person you kissed?
Jessie.

3. What was the last memorable book you read?
Hrm. Sad state of affairs here, I guess. I don't recall.

4. When did you last dance?
Last Friday night... at a local club... with Jessie.

5. What's the last thing you want to hear from your parents?
The last thing as in the final thing you ever hear them say? Or as in the one thing you want them to never, ever say? If we're going with the former, it's gotta be, "I secretely accumilated a grand sum on money and I'm leaving it all to you."

The loot

It's probably hard to really disappoint me at Christmas simply because I clam up sometime around late October. I know exactly what I want January through September... but when people start making lists to check twice, I'm at a loss for suggestions. On of my resolutions for 2004 is to make an on-going list so that I don't have to hear "you're so hard to shop for" next time around. In the mean time, some of the highlights of this year's bounty include...

Mom: Money, a pair of jeans, some sweats, an electronic stud finder (18 months in the apartment & I'm still hanging stuff), some cutlery, some firefighter/Christmas-themed items, 3 Doors Down's "Away From The Sun" CD and this really nice bench-type deal for my apartment (seats 3 comfortably).

My brother: A beer -- I mean, ice -- chest, a Larry the Cable Guy CD and some bits & adapters for my drill.

Jessie: A red fleece pull-over, a t-shirt from one of my favorite college teams and the offer to sew a cushion for the aforementioned bench-type deal for my apartment (which seats 3 comfortably).

My great aunt: A check with plural zeros, a digital voice recorder and a play-at-home Jeopardy game (because, as she says, everyone needs a toy under the tree).

Jessie's parents: Most notably, a new Dockers-brand coat.
