Favorite gift received as a child? ... A nurses outfit.
Sounds like it's time for P. to buy you a new one... :) And I thought you were going to say red panties, not a scarf. Most of my answers were the same as yours, except I shop early. I hate crowds and pushy women... One time I had a lady grab a dress out my hand that I was going to buy my spouse. My daughter knew that look in my eyes and step in front of me. Spanking that woman was not my intentions. I was going to jail for sure that day. I stop shopping late after that and a few other close calls with late shoppers. I now one click shop with my two day shipping with Amazon. :)

Nice meme.
Hope the preparations for Crimble are going well and that you leave some time during the baking for a quick application of the wooden spoon.

A very truthful meme. As we used to live across the country from the kids and they would come for Thanksgiving that is when the tree went up. This is the first year in 14 that all of us will be together for Christmas and having Turkey. All shopping was done by 12/9/13, I hate crowded stores. I know what I'm going to buy before I enter the store and usually only go to 3 stores and I'm done.

Ami Starsong said...

Just have to get some of that wrapping paper! Many of your answers are just what mine would be, especially about the shopping part, and I understand about choosing a tree as Dan went and bought ours all on his own this year, and it is lopsided! LOL!

A great little meme!
