1. What Christmas song do you loathe?
Loathe might be a strong word but the Christmas song that I just don’t get into is “Last Christmas”. I first heard Wham! sing it when I was younger and I know Taylor Swift released a version of it recently. I really don’t get why its a Christmas song other than it has “Christmas” in the title. It’s really just a break-up song and the break-up happened “last Christmas”. Weak sauce, my friend.
2. Do you and your significant other cuddle at night or sleep on opposite sides of the bed?
Remember the scene of FRIENDS in which Rachael goes on about how her and Ross are cuddly sleepers, annoying baby talk and all? Then she leaves and Ross comes clean that he wriggles away once she’s asleep. Well, luckily Keith and I are both well aware that we are NOT cuddly sleepers. When its time to go to sleep we both roll over, backs to each other even, and go off to dreamland. Usually after I’ve reminded hubby-man to get on his own dang side of the bed but that’s a whole ‘nother issue! I read an article in college (probably in Cosmo or something credible like it) that if you slept with your backs to each other your relationship wouldn’t last. For a long time I took it seriously and refused to sleep back-to-back. But then I realized that Keith is more likely to leave me if I’m making my sleepy noises in his face so I let it go.
3. Have you ever had surgery?
Yep. Primarily minor little ones that you probably would call “procedures” rather than surgery. I had my wisdom teeth out in high school In May, I had an excision on my hand to make sure the melanoma that was found was all gone. Luckly it was all gone then and I’ve had clean scans ever since!!
4. When do you typically have your holiday shopping done?
I think most years I’m still running around tying up loose ends on Christmas Eve. Since most of our gifts have to be shipped back to Michigan where all our family is, we have to be somewhat on the ball. That is definitely not my strong suit but I’m getting better!
5. If money were not an issue (and you HAD to pick something), what would your ultimate luxury item be?
I’m so lame I think “What to get if money’s no issue…” and I come up with “oooh, KitchenAid stand mixer” or something boring like that. So I had to take off my “responsible and practical” hat and think. My ultimate luxury purchase would be a trip with my husband. We didn’t do a honeymoon, have never taken a vacation together and don’t really get an opportunity to do recreational traveling. Not that we don’t enjoy our trips to visit our family in before I get slack for saying that. We could just really use the time to relax and get away for a little bit. While I’m at it, I’d get an awesome camera to capture those memories!!
It’s a good thing its Friday because now I’m daydreaming about being on a tropical beach somewhere, reading a book with a drink in my hand!!!
