Merry Christmas Darling

For the holidays you can't beat home sweet home...

That song can't be more true. Honestly, if you're gone, in college or just off living somewhere other than your home. To return to your family and familiar faces, there's just nothing like it.
There are times I wish I was somewhere other than here, though.

A lot has been going on, it's the main reason I haven't blogged lately. It was really hard for me to figure out my thoughts and such. I have (literally) four blog posts started, but I couldn't finish or post any of them. *shrugs* It happens to us all, though I do apologize.

I want you all to do one thing for me, if you haven't already, listen to Elbow's "A day like this", if you don't fall in love with the music in it you're upsetting.

I'm listening to Christmas music xD... I can't believe how close it is. 9 days to Christmas... and only 10 'til Chris gets here. Gah... I can't get over how excited I am. We waited 150+ days... and yet, we're still going. Heh, We're the coolest.

I need to make my own Christmas CD, I bought one from work but it's all 50's and 60's music, and all upbeat and Elvis-stuff. I want something more calm, that makes you wish you could get the fireplace going, with pretty candles and lights up and such. What do you guys suggest? Also, what is your all time favorite Christmas song?

Alright, I have a few questions for all you blog folks, and if you answer them it'll help me and make me smile.
1- Favorite crayon color?
2- Cheesiest/Most cliche gift you've ever given and received?
3- Favorite book? (Seriously! Tell me. I gotta read mooooore)
4- What is your favorite part about Christmas?
5- Give (I know this isn't a question) me a really strange topic to blog about, but be creative and something I could sort of be inspired to write about. I need to spice up my blog more... haha

Okay, that's all. xD Thanks.

I leave you with this:

Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveler, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!  ~Charles Dickens

1. Either Scarlet or Aqua
2. Given? You'll find out in less than 2 weeks. Received, I'm not really sure.
3. House of Leaves, hands down.
4. How peaceful everything is for just a little while. Also, turkey.
5. Make a theme playlist. You wouldn't believe how much fun it is.

2. Given: A really heart felt comic strip
Received: I kid you not, an engagement ring and proposal
3. Gah, you can't be that cruel. I can't think of anything other than Good Omens right now, so that'll be your goal title.
4. Home
5. Take a few of your favorite fictional characters from books and movies and write them into a little skit together. They don't have to be cartoons either. Just characters you really like.
