Man is it REALLY only 33 days until Xmas?

Ok, I'm officially freaking out. Only 33 days left until Xmas, and I haven't even started shopping yet. The only gifts I have are for good ol' whatshisface, and for my grandmother. Other than that, I am at a complete LOSS.

You know what that means right? It means that come Xmas eve (day), I'm going to be fighting the last minute crowd at the mall cuz I'll remember at the very last minute that I forgot something. And of course my loved ones aren't being any help at all. Mom and Dad keep saying - we don't want anything. My mother in law says - whatever you decide. And of course there are the neices who have yet to email us their lists, even though they are never off their computers.

AAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGHHH - I'm going to go completely nuts!!

I'd like to do something here - a question for my friends who stop on by. We always do those darned quizzes, so here's a short and simple one. (And Bond, so help me, if you say ONE thing about Canadian spelling.....)

1. What is your favourite "guilty" holiday tradition?
2. What is your favourite part of the holidays?
3. What is your one wish for this season? (And ladies, can we all come up with something a little more original than Taylor under our tree?)

I will start:

1. Every Christmas eve, after we've sung carols at my aunt's place, and everyone is ready to drop dead with exhaustion, I sit up and watch Christmas Eve on Sesame Street. I haven't missed one Christmas since I can remember.

2. Well, I'd like to say seeing all my family, but because we're so close, that's a weekly occurance. So I will say seeing all the lights, hearing the music, and watching people be a little bit nicer to each other (mostly). ALSO, I love all the Xmas movies - I try to watch at least one a night starting at the beginning of December.

3. My wish for the holiday season is for all my wonderful friends to have their wishes come true - whether it be for love, a better life, or world peace.

NOW, for a few random tidbits and quotes, courtesy of my good buddy Paul:

(This first one is definately SP worthy)

A Norwich Union customer collided with a cow. The questions and answers on the claim form were:
Q - What warning was given by you?
A - Horn
Q - What warning was given by the other party?
A - Moo



It is useless to hold a person to anything he says while he's in love, drunk, or running for office. - Shirley MacLaine


Honesty is the best policy, but insanity is a better defense. - Steve Landesberg


A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. ~ Douglas Adams


Stay sane inside insanity - and never forget your towel.

1. Mom's pumpkin bread - she has to make me three or four loaves because I go through it so fast.

2. I like to drive around town and look at decorated houses and neighborhoods.

3. As for my wish, I just want to get through it without me or anyone around me getting sick, so we can enjoy all the old traditions and make new ones.
