Hold your breath and count to ten, And fall apart and start again  
OMG! Yesterday I discovered that the teaser trailer for Hannibal Rising is out! YAYEEE! I mean, the book came out like a month ago, and apparently the film is already finised; and hey that's fine with me! It comes out 8 days after my birthday. So best birthday present ever? I think it just might be. I am almost as excited for this as I am for Harry Potter, and that's saying something! Plus, the kid they got to play Hannibal Lecter creeps me out, in a good way. He is creepy hot.

What greeting of the season do you use?
Happy Festivus!

Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
We open presents from my mom's sister and brother Christmas Eve, then presents from each other Christmas morning, then dad's family that afternoon

Did you leave out milk and cookies for Santa?
Still do, and carrots and water for the reindeer

What's one Christmas Eve tradition your family had?
We spend Christmas Eve with my mom's brother, my uncle Harry and his family

What's your favorite Christmas song?
"Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses, and "Mary Did You Know" by Clay Aiken

What's your least favorite Christmas song?
gotta go with Jackie and Tree on this one...but just when shitty celebrities cover Christmas songs

What's your favorite Christmas movie?
Just Friends, While You Were Sleeping

What about A Christmas Story?
I friggin' LURVE that movie!!! It totally reminds me of when I was a kid, and how a "triple dog dare" was serious business

What's your favorite Christmas tv special?
The Year Without Santa Claus...Heat Meiser and Snow Meiser are totally badass! Plus, they have sexual chemistry, they should have tons of buttsex

What's the best present you ever got?
my dog Minni

What's the worst present you ever got?
it's not that they were total rubbish presents, but the sheer volume of blankets and gloves I got 3 years in a row. And they all came from my dad's family, so they knew I got them all last year...it's like I could tell that "Oh, we obviously didn't even try to think of something you like. We just needed to get this shit done and bought the first things we saw". Maybe I sound ungrateful; but it just hurts a little more because I can tell my uncle Rob doesn't like me

What's the best present you ever gave?
Hmmm...I am total crap when it comes to buying presents for other people. I think what I got Lauren this year is pretty good

What's the worst present you ever gave?
probably some crappy candles

What do you want for Christmas this year?
a video iPod (but that ain't gonna happen LOL), Boston Legal season 2, all but season 1 (since I already have them) of Family Guy, That 70s Show, and Kids in the Hall, and Futurama

Is Christmas still a religiously significant holiday for you--in other words, do you celebrate it as the birth of the savior of humanity?
I didn't even really celebrate it that way when I was religious. But yeah, haven't for at least the past 3 years

Real or artificial Christmas tree?
Real. Every year my mom says they are going to buy an artificial one when they go on sale after Christmas; but they usually think about going to Florida again

Work is bleck. There was little traffic on the road (since no one else is working), so I got in really early. But not early enough to change my time card dammit! And my mom took today off work too. So, that was depressing. But she told me she planted the seed of me leaving work early in my dad's brain. "Oh, are you thinking of letting Allison go early?" But he hasn't said anything about it, so it probably didn't work. Probably because she made a point to say that I had not talked to her about it at all. So, that totally negates my lack of involvement. And I didn't tell her to say anything! I just mentioned that since I had overheard my dad say that he expects it to be dead after 12, that maybe he would let me leave.

Mmm, I'm hungry. "Let's get some fuckin' french toast." LOL. But french toast actually does sound good. Maybe I will get that when Amanda and I go out on Christmas Eve. Last year we went to Denny's together, and so we are trying to do it again and make a tradition. But I think we are going to Shari's this year. It's a classier version of Denny's, for the non-Seattle peeps :) Plus, there is a waiter named Tony there, who is too awesome. He always comes over and talks with us, gives us crazy straws for our strawberry lemonades and Arnold Palmers.

I have been wanting to watch About A Boy for days! I wasn't gonna do it, but I may as well. Go to Fred Meyer, cash my paycheck, pick up a couple of Christmas cards, then get About A Boy, Little Miss Sunshine, and My Super Ex-Girlfriend. Haven't seen the last two, but they have so many actors I love in each, I have to get them. Hopefully I won't get them for Christmas. I doubt I will (more blankets and gloves for me), but since I buy them 3 days before Christmas, it means the fates will conspire against me and I will get them XP

Hehehe...I am going to sneak over to the thermostat and turn it up. I am alone and drunk with power! MWAHAHA! Plus I am freezing (like always)!

There were only 2 copies left at the store, the guy even had to go find it for me (I am there every Tuesday for new movies, so he knows me LOL)...so I guess it's gotta be somewhat good XD
