I've been tagged!

I was tagged by Lex, and I just so happen to love this kind of thing! Depending on how well you know me, you may already know that I'm a huge fan of timewasters. In fact, my open math book is in front of me, but THIS is more fun. Would that I could always do creative and wonderful things instead of homework. Bah. Life would be better my way.

1. What are your favorite things about the Christmas season?
Sometimes Christmas means that my whole family is together. I really enjoy that. And of course, we have our eggnog and tree decorating traditions, but pretty much everyone has outgrown that except for my mom and me. It's ok, I don't mind. We're just extra awesome together. I love the snuggly feeling you get on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, too... last year I was soooo so so so sick on Christmas Day. It was awful.

2. What all are you thankful for?
I feel dumb after reading Lex's answers to this question about Shakespeare's Lady and all the other awesomeness going on in her life. I'm really bad at being grateful... I tend to gripe and moan about how awful EVERYTHING is, but really -- I'm grateful that my grades are ok, that my car runs (most of the time), and for The Christmas Post. I may add to this question as I go. 

3. What are you doing for your next birthday?
I just had a birthday and it wasn't that special. I doubt my next one will be anything great either. 

4. What is your favorite book?
The Moon-Spinners. Sentimental reasons. If I'd picked this book up off a shelf and read it, it wouldn't mean half as much to me as the story that my sister-in-law and I read together (before she was my sister!). Special, special memories. Baskin-Robbins goes along those lines, too :) And we can't forget the time I was riding with her and all of a sudden opened her car door and threw up. See, The Moon-Spinners makes me think of all this. :) 

5. What’s a movie that you wouldn’t mind watching over and over again?
This is a hard question. I have a lot of favorites. Probably any number of musicals though... I'm going to watch Meet Me in St. Louis one of these days. Megan got that bamboo tree song stuck in my head the other day. "if you like-a me like I like-a you and we like-a both the same..." 

6. What is your main goal/dream in life?
I don't know that I have a MAIN goal (and the word dream is so much better), but more like a bunch of little to-do's on my life's list. Owl City says it best: "my dreams are bursting at the seams." I don't really like to share my life to-do's but here's a sneak peak: throw a message in a bottle out to sea, write a musical, write a lullaby, learn to play guitar, adopt a pet. Cool stuff like that. :)

7. What song are you listening to/have you listened to recently?
Every day for the past 9 days I have listened to Ingrid Michaelson's album, Everybody, on the way to school and back. I don't usually skip songs, just let them play. My favorites are Soldier, Everybody, The Mountain and the Sea, Sort Of (see two posts ago), Locked Up, and Maybe. siiiigh. love Ingrid. Today I listened to her Be OK album and that just melted my heart too! Owl City as well. Like I said, if you know me, you know music is a huge staple of my life. A big, pink, sparkly, unremovable staple. 

8. What are you looking forward to at the moment?
Another difficult question that actually requires some thought on my part. The first thing that comes to mind is, I'm looking forward to when I have enough money for a new pair of jeans. There are Silvers skinny jeans at maurice's, and I'm AVOIDING trying them on because I know I will fall in love and it will be a one-way relationship and it's just not good. The second thing that comes to mind is finishing up the Christmas Post--we're getting there!! And the last thing I'm looking forward to is Christmas break :) every day brings me a little bit closer to being done with my math class!!!!
