    1. What's the best thing about christmas for you?

    It's just the one time of the year when everyone is generally happy. And I usually get to see lots of family around Christmas.

    2. Seriously, though, it's the presents, right?

    Back in the day, yeah, but not anymore.

    3. What did you get for x-mas this year?

    a new(ish) laptop
    Wildboyz season 1 DVD
    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
    some cash
    guitar calendar
    Writers on Writing (a book)
    a couple CD carrying cases

    and my cousin burned me a few CD's, which weren't really christmas presents:
    Modest Mouse - Good News for People Who Love Bad News
    The Ponys
    Radiohead - The Bends
    Radiohead - Hail to the Thief

    4. What's the best gift that you got this year?

    the laptop. Well, if you want to get serious about it, the best gift was being able to see all my family, including my brother Jeff who I haven't seen for a couple years.

    5. What's the best gift you got EVER?

    a video camera when I was... 16, 17, maybe? I had been asking my parents for one forever.

    6. What time to you ordinarily get up on Christmas?

    As late as possible, but about 8 AM today.

    7. What did you do for Christmas this year?

    Went up to my Aunt Jan's.

    8. How stupid is it that nativity scenes are being banned because it's not sensitive to others' religious beliefs?

    Very stupid. I mean, I don't get offended by menorahs, what's so bad about a nativity scene?

    9. If you could have any major-scale christmas gift (I.E., world peace, a million bucks, etc.) what would it be?

    World peace.

    10. What's your favorite christmas song?

    Ugh, I loathe christmas songs. But...

    Joni Mitchell - The River (I think that's the name of it)
    CKY - Santa's Coming
    Run DMC - Christmas in Hollis

    11. What's your favorite christmas movie?

    A Christmas Story

    12. Better for christmas dinner: ham or turkey?

    turkey, but I like ham, too. Ham's more of an easter thing, though.

    13. When do you do your christmas shopping?

    I don't, I'm poor, HA!

    14. Fake tree or real tree?

    I've never had a real tree in my life.

    15. As I was typing that last question, Radiohead's "Fake Plastic Trees" came on on my computer's playlist. Isn't that weird?

    No, who cares?

    Merry x-mas.

    1. What's the best thing about christmas for you?

    I get to stay home and do nothing. No finals, no homework, no nothin'. Just vegging the whole time.

    2. Seriously, though, it's the presents, right?

    Not really, but that's definitely a high point.

    3. What did you get for x-mas this year?

    An 80GB USB hard drive (external), sweats, 3 lbs. of Skittles (excessive, isn't it?), "Return of the King" (extended), shoes, and probably a few things I'm forgetting.

    4. What's the best gift that you got this year?

    The hard drive.

    5. What's the best gift you got EVER?

    Not sure, really.

    6. What time to you ordinarily get up on Christmas?

    Whenever. It changes every year.

    7. What did you do for Christmas this year?

    10

    8. How stupid is it that nativity scenes are being banned because it's not sensitive to others' religious beliefs?

    It's so stupid, you have to make it more complex for blondes to get it.

    9. If you could have any major-scale christmas gift (I.E., world peace, a million bucks, etc.) what would it be?

    Nothing special. Just assurance of a wife, a couple of kids, and a job that provides for the family at some point down the road.

    10. What's your favorite christmas song?

    I've been working in retail. What do you think?

    11. What's your favorite christmas movie?

    Dunno. It's either "A Christmas Story" or "Miracle on 34th Street" (the original version in black and white)

    12. Better for christmas dinner: ham or turkey?

    Turkey. Who ever heard of ham soup?

    13. When do you do your christmas shopping?

    No special time. I just keep my eyes open and grab up whatever I think somebody I know would like. About 3 days before Christmas, I figure out what people I've missed and buy them all something generic.

    14. Fake tree or real tree?

    Usually fake. Real this year.

    15. As I was typing that last question, Radiohead's "Fake Plastic Trees" came on on my computer's playlist. Isn't that weird?

    Kinda, but I've seen wierder.
