christmas meme

This meme comes from Gary Rith, a fabulous and friendly fellow potter.

1. What was the best present you've ever received?

A ride-on yellow duckie that my sister actually got. I, being the bigger (and apparently meaner) sister, pushed her off and rode it around myself. My family still mocks me about this...

2. What was the worst?

A barbie camper when what I really wanted was an electric train set. A great present, just not the train set I was dreaming about. Still have never received a train set (but I'm over it now).

3. What is something you really want this year for yourself?

A new camera body. To be specific a Pentax K200D digital SLR body that will fit all of my beautiful and unsurpassed by modern techonology lenses of old.

4. What is something you really want this year for someone else?

I would like little fairies to come and finish building my husband's workshop so that he can start his business.

5. What's your favorite Christmas memory?

This would be an amalgam of all of the Christmas's spent with my family at either my Grandma Kate and Grandpa Vic's farm in Vancouver, or at my Grandma Joyce and Grandpa Roy's beautiful brick house in Winnipeg. All of my family together, eating and playing games. Magical.

What are your answers?

Christmas with the family is best, especially grandparents.

My favorite Christmas memory is sitting around my grandparents fireplace (somehow, in my memory, it always snows on Christmas in Cherryfield, Maine), choosing favorite poems to read aloud from a volume called "A Treasury of the Familiar."
It was only when I got to college that I realized that not all families do that.
