Five questions: I don't know it's Christmas

1. What Christmas song do you loathe?

I really, really loathe "Do they know it's Christmas?"  And, yes, I know it raised millions of dollars for aid in Africa.  But, I hear the lyrics and think -- this is patronizing and stereotypical.

There's no rain, no snow, and no rivers in Africa? 

Just starving children that need "our" help? 

And they all need to know it's a Christian holiday? 


I'm so glad it made lots of money, but it just turns my stomache.  Apparently, I'm not the only one who feels this way.

2. Do you and your significant other cuddle at night or sleep on opposite sides of the bed?

We cuddle, arm-in-arm and spoon -- nestled up close.  Every night.  All night. We've been married for 13+ years. Do you believe me?

3. Have you ever had surgery?

I had my ruptured appendix removed when I was 21.  Two week stay in the hospital.  Two months of IV antibiotics. Fun times.

I've also had tubes put in my ears as an adult (always good when the doctor tells you he does his surgeries by order of age -- and the person before you is 8).  And I've had my wisdom teeth out.

4. When do you typically have your holiday shopping done?

I'm usually pretty close to done about a week or so before Christmas, though there's always something pick up last minute.   I do a lot of shopping online.

5. If money were not an issue (and you HAD to pick something), what would your ultimate luxury item be?

I would vacation for 1/2 the year.

Oh, that song really is evil and I love the 80's and 90's so for me to say that it has to be bad!
