||ER where Carol gets jilted
Friday Five Time!!
1. Do you enjoy the cold weather and snow for the holidays?
Um, I live in south Texas...what is this "snow"? and cold weather? I'm don't care much, except when I have to get into a cold bed. and because my hubby is hypothermic. I like the moderate kind of weather, los in the 50s and highs in the 80s That's my time of year.
2. What is your ideal holiday celebration? How, where, with whom would you celebrate to make things perfect?
I miss the Christmas Eves of my childhood. Running around my granny's house with the cousins screaming "is it time yet? isittimeyet???" every five minutes. but everyone knows you can't go back. Now I'll settle for dinner with my family where no one ends up in tears because of something someone said 10 years ago. and dinner with his family where his father and mother treat him like their beloved son, as opposed to the family fuck up. a perfect holiday? dinner with EVERY member of my family, father included, at my granny's house, just like they used to be. but well, you can't go back...
3. Do you do have any holiday traditions?
well, his family has tacos every christmas eve. my family has christmas eve present opening at granny's house, with tamales, and all kinds of good food. and for christmas day dinner, my dad would make the potatoes, my mom would make the stuffing. Now...I'm an adult, with my own house and so far the only thing i've done the same every christmas is to work and be there for the residents. oh..and I take one of the residents out for Christmas dinner, her family lives out of state.
4. Do you do anything to help the needy?
I give money to the salvation army, you know the santa's outside the stores. I give at food drives. I donate clothes that don't fit me anymore. I do what I can, I don't have much, but I help when I can.
5. What one gift would you like for yourself?
ooohh...let me think...a baby? okay, so i can't get one of those on such short notice, but it would be nice if that was the present God gave me, pregnancy...morning sickness, puffy feet, non stop nausea, back aches...I must be crazy to want all of that. But a realisitic gift...how about a DVD/VCR player. or a cell phone I can get programed for T-Mobile.
