The Christmas Meme

I got tagged for the Christmas Meme by Berry and since the Fridays Feast failed me….

1. Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share Christmas facts about yourself.
3. Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Welcome to the Christmas edition of “Getting to Know Your Friends.”

Love wrapping presents even though I am not very talented at it. Just like the ripping paper noise and dislike the careful unwrappers… I make it almost impossible to do.

This year back to artificial, grew up with them… did the real one, it is a pain in the butt and this one looks way prettier.

Right after thanksgiving.

After the wiseman leave… like sometime in February

  1. I did this meme about a week ago, darnit! I was looking forward to another one since there’s no Feast this week. I guess I’ll just find something else to write about. I enjoyed visiting your blog.

  2. I’m game! haha. Just copied it and am on my way “home” to “do it”. See you there soon. I like your answers and will see what I can come up with, haha.

  3. Whine… Mom won’t let me do this meme cuz I’z a dawg and don’t have my own tree and stuff like that. She said if you read hers you’ll know all about mine too. She’s Alice at I Was Born2Cree8. I’ll find something else nice for you to read instead.

  4. Well…. I thought I wrote here to tell you I was posting this meme on my page… in fact, I KNOW I did, but it’s not here and Reba’s posts are… so …. I was very distracted earlier so who knows what I might have done and lost it.

    So anyway, mines up now.

  5. Nice!

    BTW – I haven’t blown you off for the last meme you tagged me with, I was just doped up on painkillers after my surgery, and this week has been cramming three weeks worth of work into one.
