Meme Girls

So I know this is a lame post, to just do a meme. (Rhymes with theme) Believe me, it won’t become habit. This is not what I want my blog to be. I actually really want to write things. But I’ve been posting at night and tonight I’m going to my brother’s. I haven’t see them or my niece or nephew in awhile. AND! Tonight Noah has soccer practice, so I get to see that. And I brought my camera, so I hope to have some shots to share.

I didn’t know what a meme was. I see it on a lot of blogs with these surveys. But I was wondering why it was called a meme. I had to look it up on Wikipedia. It’s basically a fad. And these little surveys or “get to know yous” pretty much qualify. So instead of e-mailing it all out to you, you get to read it right here. And this, qualifies as my post today, so I’ve posted everyday still this month! Six days and counting…

By the way, what did we do before the internet? I mean, Wikipedia? What a great site. You can look up everything on there! And it’s so thorough. I’m reading this book that’s a true story from back in 1993. And the one guy said in the book “I’ll fax it over.” Remember when that was the fastest way to get things to people? Because in ’93, we were just really getting into the whole e-mail thing. And I’m sure a lot of business people were wary. I mean, some people I work with still don’t get it.

And now look at us. We have online diaries. A dia-log, if you will. (Bah dum dum) Thank you. I’ll be here all week!


And now, you have better things to read.

1. Eggnog or hot chocolate?

Let’s see…a creamy drink made with eggs or a drink with the word chocolate in the name? Yeah, that’s not a tough one. Definitely hot chocolate. Plus, my ex really likes eggnog. And he’s an ass. So therefore, eggnog is crap.

2. Does Santa help wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?

Well, he’s never helped me wrap mine, so he just does the easy part and puts them under the tree. Don’t all bosses just do the easy part and take all the credit? Mine do.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?

Well, I used to think colored. But I saw some trees with white and it looked nice. Very sophisticated. And I, am not sophisticated. And if someone else puts them up for me, I’ll take what I can get.

4. Do you hang mistletoe?

So I can have a constant reminder of the fact that I ain’t going to be getting any kisses under said mistletoe? Hell to the no. And, the cats would try to eat it.

5. When do you put your decorations up?

Usually whenever I buy my tree. And by decorations, you must mean the ONE Christmas candle I own. It’s a reindeer. I bring it out every year. I did just hang my wreath on my front door Monday night. No tree this year for me. Too much work to haul it up 3 flights of stairs.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?

First off, WHY excluding dessert? Second, any dish that holds mass quantities of wine.

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child?

The first year after my parents got divorced. TWO SETS OF PRESENTS!

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?

You mean the truth that he doesn’t wrap the damn presents? I’m pretty sure my brother spoiled it for me. Since he’s mean like that. Or was mean like that. Finally, at almost 32 years old, he’s nice to me. Although I vaguely remember peeking through the keyhole on my mom’s bedroom door and saw her wrapping Perfection. (Remember that game? ALWAYS scared the beejeezus out of me when it popped. Since I was NEVER finished!)

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?

Most of the time. When I celebrated Xmas by myself in Cali all those years, I waited. Since I had like 3 gifts to open. And wanted to open them while watching the Yule log burn on TV. That is, when we didn’t have to work on Xmas. But ever since age 8, we’ve been celebrating Christmas Eve with my stepmom. So long answer, yes.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?

As fast as motherfuckingly possible. I do not enjoy this. Obviously, since I’m not even getting one this year. I just like the smell. So I got a wreath instead.

11. Snow, love it or dread it?

Some motherfucker in Hawaii wrote this question. Who doesn’t dread snow? Yeah, pretty to look at. And I like sledding, but it’s SUCH a pain to brush off the car, drive in  and just deal with in general. And it’s only pretty when you’re sitting inside your cozy living room watching it out the window.

12. Can you ice skate?

Um, yes. I’m perfecting my triple Salchow.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?

I pretty much like any gift. So, no.

14. What’s the most important thing about the holidays for you?

Days off from work.

15. What is your favorite holiday dessert?

Shouldn’t this question be closer to the other food question that EXCLUDES dessert? Cookies. And pie. And cheesecake. And ice cream. Um, and candy. Dude. Any dessert.

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?

We don’t have any. Except for the yelling. And the drinking.

17. What tops your tree?

Is this like “What floats your boat?” or “What races your engine?” And how many times do I have to tell you? I DON’T HAVE A TREE. And if I did, the ceiling would top it.

18. Which do you prefer? Giving or receiving?

Everyone who says giving is a bold-faced liar. We all love to get presents. At least, us selfish assholes.

I do like giving, though. I’m not THAT shallow.

19. What is your favorite Christmas song?

Ooh…..easy one. “Wonderful Christmastime” by Paul McCartney. Or Wings. And my runner-up is “Last Christmas” by Wham!

20. Candy Canes. Yuck or Yum?

Well, idiots, candy canes are no different than those peppermints you get at restaurants. They are just in cane shape. I like them when they are chewy.



  1. I love filling out things on myself. I have an entire blog of them. It started when I was bored at my old job a lot, though.

  2. I like the idea of posting them online so that you don’t have to spam your friends. And I liked this one because I’ve never seen it before.

    They’ve taken on a new life since MySpace. They have some weird ass ones on there that you can tell that some 13-year old wrote.

    It’s a good way to spread the snark!

  3. Kristabella J. Choi, you haven’t been breaking our anti-My Space pact, have you?

    You can help me decorate my fake tree next weekend. I have a basset hound dressed up as an angel for the top of my tree. Yes, I’m exactly that much of a dork.

  4. No, I got this one via e-mail. MySpace does, and always will, suck. Yet I still have a stupid profile on there.

    OK fine, I may go on there when I get weird friend requests. But that’s it. Did you know Trik Turner wants to be my friend?

    I tried to find a cool tree topper last year and they were all lame.

  5. My profile is set to private. I’ve got to keep it so I can look for my future students and get blackmail. Kidding!
