Not lately, but then I've been married almost twenty years.

Which are creepier, centipedes or millipedes?

Okay, that wasn't fun.

Centipedes, they're venomous evil looking things.

What would you prefer to kiss, a blast-ended skrewt or Umbridge? (geee, I wonder where I got that idea).

I'd rather kiss a Skrewt.

Religious songs "O Holy Night" and "O Come, Emmanuel" if someone sings them well (too many people think they can sing "O Holy Night" and they can't). Secular songs I'd have to say I like the odd ones like "Suzy Snowflake". I love them all. We used to have a huge christmas songbook that my mom would play songs for us during the Holidays on the organ.

What did you ask for from Santa?

A digital camera. I'm not greedy. *g*

I love the old Christmas songs, I don't like things like "Rudolf the red-nose reindeer" at all.

What's on the top of your Christmas tree this year?

Nothing yet. I haven't decided. I have an angel that usually goes up, but I've always thought it was really ugly. I also have a animated Mickey Mouse tree-topper that I don't often use because its too heavy for my tree. So who knows what will go up.


Are you putting up small tree, large tree, or no tree at all for the Holidays?

The ones my parents give me. This year, it was 50 Euros, to divide between the three of us. And now we are expected to buy a present for every member of the family (mum, dad, two brothers, one sister in law and two nephews). I don't think so. Oh, and I'm not getting a birthday present.

I quite like socks as a Christmas present, by the way, as long as they're hand-knitted. I'm still wearing some remnant sox (blue, red and brown) my oma (maysherestinpeace) knitted once.

What's your favourite Christmas food/drink?

Goose! We always have goose on Christmas day, with the most amazing gravy and stuffing. It's not as good as when my Dad used to make it - he used to make the most amazing Christmas dinners - but it's still delicious.

What's your LEAST favourite Christmas food/drink?

Christmas pudding, and fruitcake in general. It's like some survival from the days when Europeans, denied chocolate by a quirk of geography, actually thought candied citrons counted as sweets. Today, we know better, but somehow these horrible things, like marzipan, rock and licorice, are still eaten by people who no longer know why.

You disagree with me, don't you?

On the licorice, yes. I like all the varieties.

My stepfather. Or ex-stepfather anyway, though his comments are mainly designed to get the collective goat of the women and children in the family.

Would the world be better off without the wasp?

YES! As someone who was stung six times in one go at the tender age of five, and spent years thereafter going into full-on freak-out mode at the sight of them, my answer is yes, yes and yes again.

What's top of your Christmas list this year?

But what about the animals that eat wasps?

Top of the Christmas list would be being with exactly the people I want to be with at Christmas. Which will probably happen when I'm 80.

Coloured fairy lights or white fairy lights?

Ordinarily I'd say white christmas lights, but this year I'm in a colorful christmas light mood.

Do you like to sing christmas songs/carols?

I don't know, but the number is high.

Yep. My dad usually buys everyone a poinsettia. He won't buy anyone cut flowers or bouquets, but likes to give potted plants at Christmas and Easter.

How much weight do you think you'll gain over the holidays?

Four pounds already, but it should go away in January (I hope!)

I have no pets, but if I did I probably wouldn't. It's a cat! It has no concept of Christmas. I'd be buying something for myself.

What do you do on Christmas Eve?

Absolutely not! I have trouble buying enough gifts for the six children, one son-in-law and one grandson! ;-) But I did get my dog groomed for the month. Does that count a little?

Will you have a white Christmas this year?

Oops, Mr. Ben, we overlapped. We actually often open presents Christmas Eve night because I enjoy the atmosphere of opening the presents at night with all the lights lit.

So, will you have a White Christmas?

Somehow it always manages to snow on Christmas.

Mr. Ben, I greatly disagree with you! The otherwise stupid cat adores Christmas. He gets giddy when I put up the tree, lays under it all day, and noses through the presents. When we all get together to unwrap, he sits there waiting for us to pull out his present, and literally has his nose in it until the paper is off. One year the dumb cats snooped under the bed for presents, found theirs, them dragged them out and played with them. Then when I take down the tree he sulks around the house with his head down glaring at me all day. Last month when I got back from vacation, I handed out presents to the rest of the family and the cat sat there by my case forever and stared at me with reproach because I didn't have anything for them. It was hilarious but it made me feel bad for forgetting him. So yes, I do buy the stupid cat a Christmas present.

What's the best gag gift you have ever given or received?

A mechanical spider, when I was a kid. I developed a great attachment to it an I still love spiders...

I keep getting told off for slagging myself off, is that a vice?

I've got two cans of pumpkin (10p each!), what do I do with them?

Make pumpkin pie

I have a moody seven year old to deal with who only wants to play football and Monopoly with me, two things I hate. What should I do?

Awww, play Monopoly. How often do you get to see your brother? Perhaps it's the quality of the memory you create that matters, rather than the specific activity.

What does "slagging myself off" mean? (It sounds naughty!)

It sounds like slacking off, I believe. The seven year old isn't Diri's brother, it is Diri's younger brother's brother. You can read about the family dynamics at the Teashop.

Have you ever seen a UFO?
