What traditional Christmas decoration is actually a parasitic plant?

I don’t actually know, I feel like I’ve been told this in the past though. Too the Google! Oh my goodness, it’s Mistletoe!

Name something about this holiday season (whatever version you may celebrate) that most people like, but you dislike?

I think just liking Christmas?Hahaha…Maybe it was just the mood this year. I have to be honest, I don’t “dislike” but I don’t consider New Years, to be a “New Year” I feel like our own birthdays are a “new year”. I know that it sounds weird, and I get it’s a new Calendar Year. I like to do the “refreshing” new year, new me. On my birthday.

What’s your favorite – or least favorite –  song sung traditionally at this time of year?

There’s actually an entire Christmas cd that I love and loved for years. If you know who Boney M is (Ra-Ra-Rasputin) In 1986 (I believe) they brought out a whole Christmas CD and I play the whole cd every year!

And the last one ———>  In the song “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer,” what “incriminating” evidence was found on Grandma’s back?

Oh my goodness, Christmas is quite dangerous!lol…I had to Google this one too because I don’t even think I’ve heard of the song before. Is it Claus? Or “Claws”?

Finally:    What would you like to share with the world, if time or cost were no object?

Without a doubt, kindness. I sometimes feel the world is sorely lacking that these days. I got into an argument with someone I use to respect today. They actually think Trump saying they’re taking the US Troops out is going to happen. Not only that though this person does not seem to care that Trump doesn’t actually seem to have a plan. Then, for some reason, this person turned it into a whole Liberals just don’t want the Troops home? LITERALLY NO LIBERAL IS SAYING THAT! We are saying that there needs to be a plan. History has not be kind to the people who are suddenly taken away, people tend to get more aggressive. Not “Oh, okay then, we’ll just let you leave”.

Our Questions Today:

When you are old, what do you think children will ask you to tell stories about?   If you are ‘old’ (a term with different meanings for everyone); what stories do you tell your grandchildren?   

Oh wow, good question! I can’t honestly say that I’m even sure what they’d want to know or what would be appropriate. One thing I have thought about that I would want to tell my daughters before it happens. When they get their little monthly friend, to come to me straight away. When I got mine, I went into denial and then was horribly upset because I thought something was wrong with me. I was so frightened! I’m not sure though that’s the kind of stories they’d want to hear,lol

When did something start out badly for you but in the end, it was great?

I think it was my current job, when I initially was told about it. We were told that it was to work in the Library, not the admin part of the TAFE. So when we came in on the first day of work, I was very shocked…and then panicked that I wouldn’t be able to do the job at all. Yet now, I really enjoy my work. I love my co-workers, they are beautiful human beings.

What do you think you are much better at than you actually are?   Maybe this one’s kinda mean…thoughts?  

I don’t think it’s a mean question, but I am perfectly perfect in every way =P. Being witty is one of my downfalls though. I try, but I know I am terrible at it. My brother is SO good at it!

What would be the worst thing to hear as you are going under anesthesia before surgery?

Anything in Dr. Nick Riviera voice really,lol

and we’ll keep the affirmations and upbeat question just as Cee had it:

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I did SO much unintentional walking this week. Although my feet were killing me in the end, my leg didn’t flare up with sciatica =D Which is fantastic!
