I promise my journal won’t become a collection of memes, but sometimes, they’re just fun! Like this one:
A Long December
1. Looking back at it now, how were your holidays and your time on New Year’s Eve?
My holidays were amazing! Aidan was here, and we also took a whirlwind trip to OH to see family and friends. My mom cried when I gave her a Crosby record player/CD player/tape player/radio combo along with some records. I saw my sister, whom I hadn’t seen in years. There was a Doctor Who marathon on BBC America. The food was delicious and plentiful. It was awesome. I was working a lot of long hours, so Aidan, Adam, and I had started our holidays on my birthday (December 20). We opened our Christmas gifts on the Solstice because we knew we’d be out of town for Christmas Day. I hadn’t even had time to wrap gifts, so I sat the boys down in front of Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol and made them watch that while I wrapped all the presents in a frenzy. I’d also JUST gotten hired full time at my job (I’d been a temp, so I’d been saving), so I was able to spoil everyone I loved. We celebrated every night until New Year’s Day, because Aidan’s birthday was the 30th! Good times.
2. Do you have any unusual collections?
I’ll let you be the judge of if my collections are unusual or not. I collect American Girl dolls, Disney plushies, purses/handbags, cute socks, cute panties, and Monster High dolls. Some of my old collections include Beanie Babies, stickers, rubber stamps, and apparently I collect coats and jackets and scarves. I have TONS of them. I also find it hard to resist a cute notebook, but I actually use those, so I don’t know if they’re a collection. I still have my Barbie Dolls from when I was young.
3. If you could train a machine to do one thing for you whenever you wanted, what would you have it do?
Lipo without the pain and downtime and cost. I HATE MY POOCHY STOMACH. (And I am so glad that flowy tops are coming back in style for the spring and summer!)
4. What is one thing that makes you cry?
Sending Aidan on a plane to OH.
5. What do you love to do on the weekend?
Sleep in. Read, read, read. Cuddle with the kitties.
6. Do you and your family get along?
Yes. The people I actually talk to, anyway.
7. Have you ever gotten kicked out somewhere? If yes, do tell.
8. Who do you normally turn to when you need to complain about something?
My friends Jen and Amy. They let me rant all I want and they don’t try to fix things. They just let me go on and on, even when I’m telling myself to get over it already but just can’t. It’s nice to have people to vent to unconditionally, and they vent to me as well.
9. What is the last thing you ordered on-line?
Socks from Free People. They had free shipping.
