I hate Christmas shopping


I really really do.

It is insane how much attention is paid to advertising and marketing. I hate crowds (only enjoy them at concerts and sporting events) and fighting people for gifts that have been drooled on, manhandled, can't find gift wrapping or boxes, etc. That doesn't even include a parking rant or mall idiocy... I swear 99% of our shopping will be done online or you are getting magazine subscriptions. That's it, end of list, end of story. I am too damn tired to fight the mall crowds and we're still wondering where the eff we are going to put our tree this year... this is because we have NO ROOM in our tiny apartment. (I take 60% of the blame --- I have way too much sh*t and no storage space)

Totally unrelated - the above pic is my little sister Mara at some foo foo party with Perry Farrell (from Jane's Addiction) and Sunshine Tutt --- just thought I'd post some eye candy LOL

Now add up your points and find out the character you most resemble.
Put your character in the subject line and forward to your friends and back to the person that sent this to you. It's very interesting to see "who" your friends are!

10-16 points) You are Garfield: You are very comfortable, easy going, and you definitely know how to have fun but sometimes you take it to an extreme. You always know what you are doing and you are always in control of your life. Others may not see things as you do, but that doesn't mean that you always have to do what is right. Try to remember your happy spirit may hurt you or others.

17-23 points) You are Snoopy: You are fun, you are very cool and popular. You always know what's in and you never are out of style. You are good at knowing how to satisfy everyone else. You have probably disappeared for a few days more than once but you always come home with the family values that you learned. Being married and having children are important to you, but only after you have had your share of fun times.

24-28 points) You are Elmo: You have lots of friends and you are also popular, always willing to give advice and help out a person in need. You are very optimistic and you always see the bright side of things. Some good advice: try not to be too much of a dreamer, if not you will have many conflicts with life.

29-35 points) You are Sponge Bob Square Pants: You are the classic person that everyone loves. You are the best friend that anyone could ever have and never want to lose. You never cause harm to anyone and they would never not understand your feelings. Life is a journey, it's funny and calm for the most part. Stay away from traitors and jealous people,then you will be stress free.

36-43 points) You are Charlie Brown: You are tender, you fall in love quickly but you are also very serious about all relationships. You are a family person. You have many friends and may occasionally forget a few birthdays. Don't let your passion confuse you with reality.

44-50 points) You are Dexter: You are smart and definitely a thinker. Every situation is fronted with a plan. You have a brilliant mind. You demonstrate very strong family principles. Maintain a stable routine but never ignore a bad situation when it comes.

Now don't spoil it! Have some fun!! Change the subject of the email to what you resemble and send it on! Don't forget to send it back to the one who sent it to you. Have an Awesome Day! May you always have sunshine, laughter and love in your life...


Later. I need to find some green tea.
