I’m doing the Saturday: 9 again this week. Every Saturday, 9 questions are posted. Sometimes the post has a theme, and at other times the questions are totally unrelated.
1. Have your discovered a betrayal? If so, did you ask, “How long has THIS been going on”?
I don’t think I’ve ever been actually betrayed.
I’m guessing that the longest lines I’ve ever stood in were in Disney World when I went with a friend one summer during high school. We had a bast though. We did go back to Disney about six years ago, but we went in December and there were practically no lines.
3. Someone has hung a sign around your neck, and you have to wear it all day long. What does it say?
Probably “Amber’s Mom.” I don’t know if it would be a punishment, a bragging point, or just for identification.
4. As the Christmas season approaches, what song is it that you just can’t wait to hear?
“Joy to the World,” “Angels We have Heard on High,” “Silent Night.” Honestly, I love just about all the Christmas songs and carols. By the way, I think it’s ridiculous that the commas are supposed to be inside the quotes in that sentence, not that American grammar asked my opinion on the matter.
5. What Christmas song do you dread to hear?
“Mary, Did You Know?” I just hate that song. It makes me cringe every time I hear it, and, wow, is it played a lot.
6. How often do you read the last chapter of a book first?
All the time. Well, maybe not first, but definitely before I’ actually supposed to. I hate the suspense of not knowing who dunnit it, or making sure that the couple has a happily ever after. Reading on my Kindle has cut down on this though. It’s so much easier to just flip to the back of a physical book than it is electronic ones.
The only movie that I think we watch every single year is Charlie Brown’s Christmas. I really like A Christmas Carol, too. My favorite is probably the George C. Scott one, but I also like the Muppet version and Jim Carey’s from a couple of years ago.
8. Do you enjoy winter in the area that you live?
No. Alright, I like how pretty it is with the snow, but I get so cold.
9. At holiday I think we all show more kindness. In your opinion, is this a “concept” that has value (like money or other tangible things) or does it exist as simply emotion? Why?
I think kindness does have value. It can produce something tangible, like a smile, and it also, I hope, encourages other’s to be kinder to those around them. It can make the world a better place, at least in theory. I don’t think it’s simply an emotion, because it needs an action, it has be shown. I can’t just feel kind, I have to be doing something to show it.
