Christmas Quick Five!

I've had a few hours - and days - to myself lately because it's so hot here in Australia.  It's a matter of getting up nice and early with the birds and jumping in and getting everything done as fast as possible before the heat strikes us all down as blobs of sweat at around 10am.

Now, I thought a Quick Five Questions would be fun to add to this event this year... I want to know more about you guys as people.  So, here goes:

1.  What's your Christmas Wish? (can be anything)

2.  What is your all-time favourite Christmas Movie?

3.  Is there a gift you are hoping to receive under the tree this year?  If so, what is it?

4.   Which book/s are you reading through this time of year?

5.  How are you spending Christmas this year?

My answers to these are:

1.  My Christmas Wish would have to be that my friends and family are well and safe this year and loved.  

2.  It's a toss-up between 'Bed of Roses' and 'Bad Santa'... yeah, totally opposite movies, I know!  But they are great films in their own right.

3.  A car.  Mum and Dad are buying me a car this year... Yay!... and an iPod jack for it... so I can listen to my music when there's sports on all the stations on the weekends when I drive around. :D

4.  'The Wastelands' by Stephen King - I'm just finishing the last few chapters of that.  'The Imaginings' by Paul D. Dail is on my iPod and I've downloaded 'A Grosvenor Square Christmas' by some of the girls at The Romance Bandits.

5.  I'll be going to my brother's place on Christmas Eve where we'll have our own Orgy of Greed after using their pizza oven!  Yummo!  Then, the next day, we'll have Christmas Lunch at Mum and Dad's house, with my Aunty Helen and cousin Kate... very cool. :D

  1. 1) Better overall health. I've been dealing with some health issues since mid-July of this year am working towards optimal health. It's been a slow process, but am seeing progress in the positive direction.

    2) I'm not sure what my favorite Christmas movie is!! I'm drawing a blank! Maybe the Polar Express???

    3) Any of the books on my wishlist OR an all expenses paid vacation to my dream vacation, which could include a cruise to Alaska, trip to New Zealand or Australia, anywhere in Europe, Antarctica, or Galapagos Islands... Machu Picchu.

    4) I'm almost done reading Estate of Mind by Tamar Myers and will probably be ready to begin reading War Horse by Michael Morpurgo on Christmas Day.

    5) Spending Christmas with my family this year. Kind of bummed about the holidays because I'm on a limited diet right now, so will be missing out on all the food my mom has been making along with all the desserts.
