Getting To Know You [Holiday Edition]

Found this super neat holiday edition of Getting to Know You on the IGGPP forums!

1. Favorite holiday movie?

The Year Without A Santa Claus, Elf, and The Nightmare Before Christmas

2. What are 3 things on your wish list this year?

since buying my new computer, i’ve been wanting an actual computer desk with a rolly chair and a new set of speakers. i know that’s not three, but i also have Amazon and Steam wishlists

3. Does it snow where you live?

yes it does, it actually snowed two years in a row on this date, but 2015 is shaping up to be a unseasonably warm December, so we might be late on getting snow this year

4. Which winter holiday do you celebrate?

Christmas

5. Worst gift you’ve ever gotten?

Mothership is really terrible at buying clothes for me, so i do not let her shop for me unsupervised. 99.9% i never wear what she gets and i end up donating it

6. Biggest pet peeve about the holiday season?

probably on how commercialized it’s become, how retail pushes it in your face when you’re barely starting summer holidays and do not even get me started on the people who got their knickers in a twist over Starbucks’ red cups not being “christmas-y” enough. take your extremist version of religion and shove it up your ass

7. Favorite seasonal song?

Last Christmas by Wham! complete with obnoxious singing because i’m that ridiculous and the Chipmunks’ Christmas Song [I STILL WANT A HULAAAAAA HOOOOOOOOOOOOP.]

8. Would you rather it be cold and cloudy, or be kind of warm out?

cold means i can always get warm

both! eggnog with booze and hot cocoa with giant mallows

Rinny, obviously 😀

12. Embarrassing holiday story?

i can’t recall any

13. Favorite holiday treat?

Soooooooooo many cookies

14. Latest you’ve stayed up on New Year’s Eve?

15. Favorite holiday character?

Heat Miser

16. What are you doing for the holidays this year?

We are going to see Star Wars The Force Awakens on Christmas Eve since the Hobbit Trilogy is over. On Christmas Day we’ll open presents and bum around.

i’m not sure if a Broadway play counts as a story, but i absolutely love RENT and also Charlie Brown’s Christmas
