Christmas Secrets

Melinda tagged me for 7 random things about me. I would think that after my last tag everyone on the cyber planet would be tired of hearing about me...but apparently i am just that good. So here you have it 7 random things moi and Christmas:

  1. The first Christmas Mark and I were married he kept joking that he was getting me rocks. Well he did. Beautiful princess cut diamond earrings. I was shocked. It was the best present ever.
  2. One year my aunt got me a HUGE red swatch watch to hang on my pink walls. Mind you at this time I was a skater chick and a giant swatch watch so did not go with the Violent Femmes posters.
  3. When I was in elementary school my mom and I went to a department store to buy me a dress for a school function. There were 2 that i really wanted but we could only afford one. On Christmas day I unwrapped a box from that very department store. I just knew it was the dress and I said so. It was socks and underwear. To this day I feel horrible about how that must have hurt my mom. She probably doesn't even remember...you know I don't think former hippies have good long term memory!
  4. I set a Christmas tree on fire one year because I NEVER watered it a single time.
  5. One year I got so pissed trying to get the lights off the tree that I threw the tree out with the lights on it. We now have a prelit tree :0
  6. I give to every bell ringer I see. Even if I just gave at the last store. I feel guilty if I don't.
  7. I always peek.

Marisa I am tagging you and only you since you swear you have never been tagged!


  1. Never thought I'd say this, but too bad Mark didn't get canned. I've been to Michigan...not somewhere I would want to live. So, here's to Mark getting fired next year. LOL! ;0) Oh, and the Swatch watch and Violent Femmes posters...LMFAO!

  2. Swatches! I haven't thought about those for a long time. Wasn't it the style to have lots of them and wear more than one at a time?

  3. you are amazing.

    i love that you always give.
    that rocks.

  4. Thanks for playing along...I am sorry you had this before!!! It is like a bad disease that doesn't go away.

    I love that you had a huge swatch on your wall. I remember those things and I think my sister got one but I didn't. Can't you still hear the jealousy here?

    And as for your hubby; sounds like a keeper. He already knows the rule: diamonds are a girls best friend.

  5. you know...christmas tree burning is some of the most fun i've ever had...cept what we do is..after christmas when people are throwing their trees out, we go around and collect as many as possible. we then go over to someone's house (with a huge backyard or land0 and set up a christmas tree bon fire...talk about GOOD TIMES...


Play nice in the sand box or I'll smack you in the face with a shovel.
