Queen's Meme #63 - Frivolous Christmas

The Queen's Meme is all about Christmas and her majesty, Queen Mimi, has employed a grand inquisitor to ferret out our deepest attitudes towards the holiday.  To join in on the fun, simply click on the link and sign in.

Let's talk Christmas. I'm in a naughty and nice mood. Some are one-word answers, others need a little explanation. Feel free to elaborate when the blog spirit moves ya. And above all else...Have fun!

1. Amazon.com or the Mall - Amazon only.  I don't like malls without crowds.  This time of year, file under fate worse than death.

2. Bows or ribbons - Both

3. Expensive or sale tags - Don't care as long as I can afford it for someone.

4. Long list or short - Very very short

5. Wrapped packages or gift bags - Both whichever works best

6. Eggnog or vodka - Eggnog with Brandy.

9. Are you Scrooge or Santa's Helper? - Scrooge - Actually I'm Fanny, Scrooge's sister.  One of my few stage roles.

I'm totally with you on the "File under fate worse than death" in number one. Shopping. Ugh! That said, I'm going to go do that with my mother on my day off tomorrow. Yeeha.

I still haven't put a tree up but at least I've finally decided what to do with one to minimize the potential damage from Tesla the Terrible. I'm only going to do lights, garland, and tinsel and see how that goes this year. IF he behaves himself, next year I'll add some decorations back on. Of course, he could surprise me and leave the tree alone but I wouldn't bet on it!

You don't put up a tree for yourself?? I find that really sad... my mother is the same way though. Still. I think it would break my heart to not have at least a small little tree :(

One of the holiday traditions we've been developing over the last couple of years is to spend 24 Dec down at the mall. We enjoy watching the people. Plus there are a lot of great restaurants in the Town Center.

This by far is a very entertaining post. I come out laughing on some of the statements of the question and answer portion and I sometimes guess what my personal answer would be to the queries. Added to that, I must have missed it but I just happen to know that Santa Baby is originally Eartha Kitt's. Talking about the holiday, Merry Christmas!
