1. What did you get for Christmas?
We got a variety of little things! My mom and step-dad bought Kyle and I bar chairs for our kitchen, we got an assortment of girl cards, and way too much chocolate. I also got pajamas and socks! Kyle and I exchanged stockings since we had just bought ourselves new furniture, and mine was filled with chocolate, a magazine, and an iTunes gift card – perfect!
2. Have you taken down your Christmas decorations?
I have, and yesterday afternoon Kyle and I tossed it off our back deck. Later we’ll take it to the Christmas tree drop-off area for it to be mulched down to nothingness.
3. What did you do for New Years Eve?
I went to a dinner/dance party that a local restaurant puts on every year with friends. Kyle had to work, so it was my first NYE alone in a while, but I did have a lot of fun despite being sober and midnight kiss-less; that was the only awkward moment of the night. I was also feeling super pregnant that night for whatever reason too. Weird!
4. Do you like accents?
If I can understand what the person is actually saying, then I don’t mind accents. If I have to ask a person to repeat something 5 times before I can figure out what they’re saying, I don’t like them.
5. What kind of television do you have?
We have a “hand-me-down” 42″ flat-screen that my dad gave us. He bought a new one so I bummed his old one off of him! It’s nothing compared to TV’s now (it’s about 4 years old) but it’s better than the 27″ CRT we had!
6. Did you make any changes at the beginning of 2012?
Nope! I spent January 1st doing the same thing I always do – take down my Christmas decorations, didn’t shower until really late in the afternoon, and had a two-hour nap! I don’t make resolutions.
7. What’s the last book you read and do you recommend it?
I *think* the last book I read was Little Earthquakes by Jennifer Weiner. It was a decent read, but definitely not Weiner’s best book! (Read my review here!) I’m about to start reading Sarah’s Key!
8. Do you stay current on celebrity gossip?
Now that I don’t work at Job #2 anymore, I’m quite behind on my celebrity gossip! When it was quiet I would flip through the gossip magazines at my check-out, even though it was “frowned upon.” I honestly couldn’t tell you who’s dating who now!
9. Do you know the words to Bohemian Rhapsody? Gangstas Paradise? Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?
Yes, sort of, and definitely yes! Bohemian Rhapsody is one of my favourite sing-alone songs, Gangsta’s Paradise is legendary, and who DOESN’T know the lyrics to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? (If you don’t, we can’t be friends.) And on NYE I definitely sung along to “Baby Got Back” without missing any lines. And all the country songs they played. My friend said I was the most “gangsta hillbilly” he knows, lol!
10. What is your favourite education television show?
I have no idea, as far as TV programming today goes. When I was little my favourite was Mr. Dressup. (I’m sure every Canadian my age remembers him!) Sesame Street is up there too.
What surprising songs do you know all the words to?
