My first Christmas memory is: I don't remember which came first, but one year, I wanted a Speak and Spell and that's the first and last time I remember going to talk to Santa about it. Then there was the year I tried to wake up Dad at some ungodly early hour and he told me to wake him up when the clock hit a certain time. So I sat there, by his bed, waiting on the clock and sighing. Pretty soon Dad says, "TAKE the CLOCK to your ROOM!" So I took it there and sat in front of it until the appointed hour.
I think Santa Claus should: start resting up for next year.
If I could play with one toy from my childhood it would be: he wasn't a "toy" but I'd love to play with our cat, Sherman, now that I'm much more of an animal person.
When I sat on Santa's lap I was really thinking: Shouldn't this guy be taking notes?
I am (naughty or nice or both or whatever you like): depends.
If I could have one experience for the holidays versus getting a gift it would be: go back to the beach.
What confuses me about the holidays is: There are so many expectations.
The best present I got for Christmas is: a Cabbage Patch doll.
If I could add one idea to the folklore of Christmas it would be: that no one gets left out.
My favorite part of the Christmas meal is: in my current situation, the conversation/interaction beforehand.
The "Peace on Earth" part of Christmas is: the part that lasts as long as a New Year’s resolution.
I am reading this holiday season: I'm re-reading "White Oleander" (I have parts of that book highlighted I read it so much) and I got myself a book of Marilyn Monroe's poetry from amazon.
My wish for everyone this Christmas is: they not be alone.
If I could see one movie this Christmas Day it would be: A Christmas Carol
This year, Christmas is: FINALLY OVER!
