Saturday 9: Drift Away (RIP Dobie Gray)

1. Who or what bores you enough to mentally drift away?
In all fairness it doesn’t have to be boring, I tend to be in my own world any way! I can be distracted in any situation.

2. How many members of your family not living with you do you see on during the holidays?
In all fairness I have a large family, I spend Christmas with my mum, stepdad and younger sisters, see my older sister and her family at some point then my dad and every one that lives with him and this year my boyfriend’s family too!

3. When spending time with family, how long after you arrive do you begin to feel "antsy" about being there too long?
Never : ) I tend to always feel welcome, especially with my sister and her family.

4. Does your family more generally get along at a holiday gathering or are there generally arguments?
Depends which side of my family, my dad’s family (mainly my gran) always used to seem to get into arguments but I’ve always lived with my mum and siblings so we all get along fine and have a very merry Christmas.

5. Are you ever embarrassed by your family around friends?
Doesn’t that come with the family like a package deal? Haha! My family do joke around but never to embarrassing lengths.

6. Of the celebrities that died in 2011, who will you miss the most?
I think Amy Winehouse was definitely too young and it was very unfortunate. She was a really good singer.

7. When you watch a movie in a movie theater, do you like the theater filled to capacity, halfway full, or nearly empty? Does your answer change depending on the type of movie you're seeing or do you feel the same way regardless of the movie or genre?
Hmm…nearly empty, that way you don’t have to be sat next to some randomer and make it known you can’t sit still for 2 hours. Plus you can have a giggle about people in the film and plot lines.

8. What’s one really cool/useful/nice thing you purchased for yourself this year?
I brought a skeleton onesy in primark! Yeah it’s meant to be for blokes but I love it.

9. Are you in the holiday spirit yet?
I've bought Christmas presents…isn’t that enough?

dear so and so... vicious dogs and amazing people

Dear man with the vicious dog,
I was having a lovely day walking in the morning sunshine despite the cold weather and my dog was being an angel of the lead, even resisting the chase of the squirrel that has it in for him (there’s been multiple incidents with him throwing acorns at me and Bruno-I’m sure it’s the same one each time!) and it was a nice peaceful day. Then you appeared with your dog who is clearly violent. Bruno’s always up for having a new friend and I don’t see how him putting his ears up and wagging a tail is a threat, therefore your dog had no reason to run and launch itself at my dog. Maybe the first time they separated you should of put your dog on a lead but-no-no-once again when we were about half a football pitch away the dog ran at us, nearly bit me and continued to growl at me causing me dog-understandably to put his head to use and push your dog away from me and for once barked and growled stood between myself and your creature. You could of at least helped me pull your dog off of my boxer instead of stand there staring. PUT YOUR DOG ON A LEAD!!

From the blonde girl with the boxer.

Dear inappropriate man who I was serving,
There is no need for a comment like that thank you very much! Women aren’t objects, and you may of thought it was flattery-it wasn’t-stop it. Plus your easily 30 years older than me.

From the lady behind the counter.

To my gorgeous nephew,
I can’t believe your nearly 2!! When did you get all grown up? You’ve always been a happy smiley little lad and your ever so affectionate and full of hugs and kisses, plus you never fail to put a smile on my face, love you millions mister monkey!

Lots of love, Aunty Ty

 To my ever so brilliant friends that are always there for me,
No matter what I need your always there, whether it’s to chat about random things that make us laugh or have a deep conversation you are always there for me. So I thought I’d say thank you, I know I can be a pain sometimes but I promise I will always be here for you too.

Love from, me!!!

Dear So and So...

Saturday 9!

1. “Everybody lies. But it's alright because nobody listens.” is one of Bud's Law's. What do you lie about?

I dont lie! ...or do I ;) I only lie to protect people when its necessary-plus I'm an awful liar!

2. When you purchase a DVD, what besides the the movie itself, what do you enjoy the most? Is it the director's commentary, the deleted scenes, the bloopers or the behind-the-scenes documentary?

Bloopers! Pirates of the Carribean ones are extremely funny.

3. What would you most like to accomplish before the year is over?

Hmm...winning the lottery? Does that count? If we're going to more rational goals I will say being in a college course that interests me :)

4. What is your current percentage of online shopping? Is it going to be more this year than last?

I can only just figure out how to do it! Technology and I don't get along to well-so yes more than last year...which was nothing.

5. What's left to do at your place (or where you are going)? Is the tree up? ...or maybe you're just happy you
found that fave Christmas coffee mug and are calling that good?

The house looks pretty Christmas-y however I had nothing to do with it-I'm just glad I've done the shopping!

6. If you could get worry free, cost free plastic surgery, would you? If yes, where?

Umm...not sure...I wouldnt get anything drastic-my body makes me-me! At most I would get rid of some scars that have appeared over the years but I still want to be me.

7. Do you think the child you were growing up, would like the adult you've become?

I dont think much has changed. I have the exact same personality, although the child I was wouldn't be impressed that I'm still not a vampire and haven't become a skilled ninja and an amazing guitarist...sorry young me.

8. What will you miss about 2011?

Not alot...this years kind of passed on by without doing much...I guess I just need to achieve more.

9. What is something you'd love to see invented?

The money tree...why hasn't anyone tried this yet?

Christmas and my life in the past cold month!

I apologise for it being so long since I’ve blogged! Once you’re busy you don’t realise how long it’s really been! However I’ve actually achieved a lot this past month, I've got nearly all of my Christmas presents bought-thank goodness-seems normally I'm one of those manic Xmas buyers fighting their way through the crowd panicking and grabbing as much as I can before someone else gets there! However this year I have all but one present ready. Believe it or not I'm actually looking forward to putting up my very small Christmas tree in my room and getting out my tinsel and beads,  yes my tree may be black and the tinsel is black and pink but it’s all still festive and sparkly! And I love Christmas tree decorations so decorating my miniature tree still gets exciting for me; although I am upset that my newer decoration-a small child fairy has been in the wars with two excitable young ladies who apparently like knocking things off shelves by slamming doors, so poor miss fairy’s missing half of her hair do!

I'm also very excited about the idea of starting a writing course, I've found one that will be brilliant but I'm still trying to find the courage to go through with it, it’s only a short evening course but it gives me a new experience with something I'm really interested in. I only have a little while left to decide so I better make a decision soon, but I think 6th form put me off of the whole idea of going back to college.

I hope you are all found well this December, and don’t have the dreaded cold that’s lingering about in the cold winter ready to pounce on even the most wrapped up people! It may be cold but don’t you love the feeling of getting inside in the warm and snuggling up with a book and maybe a hot drink! And maybe if you’re feeling really festive you can check out these cutie elves that are staying with their new host family for Xmas, and hear of all their tales you can find them on twitter @jingletoeselves where you can meet Elfred and Ella Jingletoes!

Happy December!
