Giving of myself, via answers

Filed under: Tests — steegness @ 6:10 pm

Felt like repeating what CC did.
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Bags if I’m giving, paper if I’m receiving.
2. Real tree or artificial? Artificial.
3. When do you put up the tree? Early December usually. Now that our tree can go up in a commercial break, I’m less reluctant to put it up, so the date moves up.
4. When do you take the tree down? Mid-January, maybe. As a kid, we had it up into March once. Good times. 🙂
5. Do you like eggnog? No.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? My first Nintendo.
7. Do you have a nativity scene? We have a Little People one. It doesn’t see much daylight.
8. Hardest person to buy for? My wife, hands down.
9. Easiest person to buy for? Myself.
10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Pewter Christmas Tree Ornaments. Not only do I have enough ornaments, I’m not about to add more on the first day of the countdown to taking the tree down.
11.Mail or e-mail Christmas cards? Christmas cards?
12. Favorite Christmas Movie? The Santa Clause.
13. Favorite Christmas Carol? “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” as performed by John Denver and The Muppets.
14. When do you start Christmas shopping? Aside from the occasional doodad earlier, Black Friday.
15. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? I don’t think so.
16. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Chocolate.
17. Clear or colored lights on tree? Colored presently, but I have no real preference.
18. Favorite Christmas song new this year? None.
19. Travel or stay home? Home.
20. Can you name all Santa’s reindeer? Yes.
21. Angel or star on top? A star, handcrafted by Emma.
22. Open presents Christmas Eve or morning? Morning, though my in-laws give pajamas on the Eve so everyone looks nice for photos the next day.
23. Most annoying thing this time of year? Hearing the same set of songs everywhere I go.
24. What I love most about Christmas? Malls. I LOVE malls between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I could go, not buy a thing, and be smiling the whole time.

I’m a “Follower Nerd”, too.

What Be Your Nerd Type?

Your Result: Gamer/Computer Nerd

You enjoy the visual stimulants of a video game, chatting on AIM, or reading online comics. Most of these types of nerds are considered dirty who lack hygeine, of course they always end up being the ones who make a crapload of money. And don’t worry, that’s just a stereotype; I’m not calling you dirty. ^_~

The Hit List

Put in “Tests” because I don’t feel like making a new section for “Memes”. From Halo, who stole it from someone else, who no doubt was also stunningly unoriginal, as I am.

Go here and find the most requested songs from the year of your 18th birthday. Strike the ones you hated, bold the ones you loved. Leave the ones you don’t know or didn’t care about one way or another alone

I’ve Got Charisma

Filed under: Tests — steegness @ 10:26 pm
Cordelia Chase
45% amorality, 54% passion, 27% spirituality, 27% selflessness
Cordy is one of those characters who’s sometimes misunderstood. True, you have a healthy self-interest, and an interest in the finer things in life, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have a heart of gold and a bit of passion in your soul.

In later years, Cordelia proved just how loving and good a woman she was, and (whether man or woman), I suspect you’re kind of like her.

… but once I realized that Canada and the USA would look impressive even with my limited experience in them, I went ahead and did this anyway.
