What's the most original Christmas gift you received?
A strawberry rhubarb pie from Dangerously Delicious
. It was amazing, and Brian gets an A for effort there, because I spent the summer keeping an eye out for strawberry rhubarb, and never saw it once.
What book did you get for Christmas?
A Choir of Ill Children by Tom Piccirilli
(Again, Brian remembers a book I mentioned wanting to read a few months ago and tracks it down for me.)
The best thing about the holidays...
The looks on the kids' faces.
The worst thing about the holidays...
Food. Don't get me wrong - it's been good, but I'm so sick of food.
Something you did this year for the first time, or first time in a long time
On Monday, we went roller skating. For the kids, it was their first time, and they had their share of spills and tumbles, but Sunshine* in particular did pretty well.
Do you have a New Year's Resolution?
Don't we all have the same one, to lose 20 pounds? (Especially after all that holiday food.)
I'm not going to tag anyone. I discovered when I did my reading challenge that either nobody reads this blog anymore (which the stats tell me isn't true) or people are too busy to play, and I totally understand that. So, if you decide to jump in, drop a comment below and I'll come check out your answers.
Otherwise, happy new year. May 2009 be better than the economic forecasters predict.
PS: I have a new short story out, in the debut issue of Crooked.
* I'm going with Sunshine for the boy and Dottie for the girl for the sake of brevity in posts.
