I’ve been tagged by my friend MsMeg to pass on the holiday cheer by answering the following questions:
1) Name three things that you would like to get for Christmas.
- an “I (heart) my geek” t-shirt
- The Lord of the Rings
- world peace (well, either that or “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion” on DVD)
2) Name three things that you are giving as gifts for Christmas.
- foam rubber bowling pins
- an Aquadoodle
- a fruitcake*
3) Name three things that you hope no one will get you.
- a fruitcake (particularly the one I am giving, which, if my research is correct, can trace its origins to Prince Edward’s Island, 1988)
- polka music
- any gift from Paul that might be associated with cleaning, cooking, or self-improvement (such reckless generosity could well end in one of us filing a police report)
Merry Christmas, and husbands: remember to shop responsibly!
*You may think that fruitcake is a thoughtless gift, as it is eschewed by 98% of the world’s inhabitants as inedible. However, many people overlook the fruitcake’s other useful applications–as a doorstop, a paperweight, a family heirloom, or even a weapon. Just learn to think outside the cake box. With that said, please don’t give me a fruitcake.
