Monday before Christmas quiz & etiquette ?


Anyone starting to feel like this?

I *was * starting to when I thought about all I had to do before Friday combined with parties/lunches/workouts/rides I had to deal with. Thankfully though, lunchtime shopping today was fruitful & while I was have to do that again on Wednesday I feel somewhat relieved.

Meanwhile….here I am full of questions again! (balancing out last week’s How To posts)

First, a critical Christmas Card etiquette question! I utterly blew it and did not print out an address list as I was mailing out cards to check them off as I sent them out. Saturday I received a card from someone and I am NOT sure if I sent one out to them or not! I *think* I didn’t…but I also know I stared at their name in my address book for a bit trying to decide if I should send one with a letter or not (only a few need one of those) and because..well..I had to prioritize them right? Can’t run out & I always leave a few at the end for people I know I DO forget about. Anyhoo…my dilemma: do I send one and risk duplication? Is that worse than not sending one to them at all?

Now for the quiz:

  1. Are you done shopping for gifts?
  2. Do you go Christmas caroling or do carolers come by your place?
  3. Does Santa wrap gifts or just leave them under the tree as is?
  4. Does Santa put together anything that needs assembly?
  5. What is the latest Santa’s Elves were up completing such assembly?

I’ll post my answers to those 5 questions later this week. When I will hopefully be done with #1 since I am not yet! 🙂

Friday quiz time!


Forgive me those of you on Facebook for whom this is a repeat, but there’s a bonus question in here 🙂

1) Do you say “bless you” to your cat or dog (or other pet) when it sneezes? I did that this morning when Chip sneezed & it made me giggle at my impulse. As if he cares, right?

2) Do you talk on your cell phone while in the bathroom? at home? at work? in public restrooms?

3) Do you stalk stars online & actually try to communicate with them?

What made me think of this is something I’ve seen on Twitter where people send @ message tweets to people with a 6 figure list of followers. BIG stars, not regional celebs or local sports stars, but..major ones…say in the Lance Armstrong mode. I can see an occasional reply to something specific they tweet, but I’ve seen people just randomly saying ‘good morning’ to their favorites and I can’t help thinking “really?” I guess I sound mean or like I am bursting their little hope bubble, but c’mon now!! Apply an *ounce* of reality here. No, Lance Armstrong is not going to come over for a beer & no, Adam Lambert is not going to go out clubbing with you, and no, Ellen Degeneres is not going to just mail you tickets to her show!!!!!!!!!! But hey, if you’ve got all the time in the world to sent multiple tweets to stars during the day – knock yourself out.
