Cats or dogs-- which do you prefer, and why?

I'm a total cat person. I love dogs, but I just love cats more. They're easier to keep as pets cause they basically takes care of themselves. You don't need to walk them or bath them (though some people do). They're not normally noisy, unlike most dogs who constantly bark and growl. And there are just more cat breeds that I find adorable then dog breeds :)

What is the last great book you read?


I just finished "Writing the Paranormal Novel: Techniques and Exercises for Weaving Supernatural Elements Into Your Story" by Steven Harper. It was a fantastic read and it helped out my writer's block so well :) . So glad I purchased it.

Americans, this is a link to the White House petition to End ACTA and get the Obama Administration to withdraw its support! This petition needs 25,000 signatures by February 20, 2012! Please, Please take a minute to sign this petition!! I'm sure the more signatures we get, the greater chance the Obama Administration may listen to us.

Please pass this along!!

Do not download a single song, legally or illegally. Do not go to see a single film in cinemas, or download a copy. Do not buy a DVD in the stores. Do not buy a videogame. Do not buy a single book or magazine. Wait the four weeks to buy them in April: see a film later, etc... Holding out for just four weeks, maximum, will leave a gaping hole in media companies profits for the first quarter, an economic hit which will in turn be observed by governments world wide as stocks and shares will blip from a large enough loss of incomes. This action will give a statement of intent: &quot;We will not tolerate the Media Industries&apos; lobbying for legislation that will censor the internet.&quot;
Original image and campaign source: reddit.

Edited to add my own thoughts (not part of the original reddit call for action) And if you do not feel like taking a total break and perhaps want just a trial separation or couple's counseling, then perhaps consider Black March Lite 2.0 = spend, but spend money on those content creators and independent retailers who came out against SOPA/PIPA.  And tell them why you're buying their products in March.  There are many of them.

And for those who favor the more targeted boycott, you can find info  here.  But no matter which,  you can participate and you can tailor your level of participation.  We have the tools, the will and the strength to take a stand.

Who is your favorite celebrity right now?


I have a very large list of favorite celebrities right now. Actors, actress', and singers. But on the very top of that list is the awesome Jensen Ackles. He's a fantastic actor and a great singer. I absolutely adore him. Stars in my current obsession, Supernatural, and was the main actor in one of my top five fave horror movies, My Bloody Valentine 3D. But even behind the camera, this man is a gorgeous human being. He's funny and caring and clearly loves what he does. He recently started directing and in my opinion, he nailed it on spot.

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? I love both, but at Christmas time, it's all about the egg nog (.........with a bit of rum :P )

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Presents are always either wrapped up or in gift bags. Unless it's presents that was previously opened.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? This year, I was white and blue lights on the tree (to match the blue and silver ornaments) and on the house, I have color and white lights around the front. Very pwetty :3

4. Do you hang mistletoe? I don't think I've ever hanged mistletoe before :S

5. When do you put your decorations up? I usually put them up during the second week of December, but I didn't start until early this week this year :S. Things keep getting in my way and taking up my time.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? I'm such a foodie! I love cooking/baking food, especially Christmas time. The huge turkey and all the sweets are always something to look forward to :)

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child? When I sang a whole song all by myself in my grade 3 Christmas concert. I was a star! And everyone couldn't get over how well I did and kept trying to convince my parents to put me through singing classes :) . I felt so good

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? It was when I over heard my older cousins talk about it and I remember being so upset and crying to my parents about it.

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Every since I was baby, I've opened ONE gift on Christmas Eve night before bed. Lately, it's been before the Christmas Eve church service (like jewelry I could wear to church or nice clothes)

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? I try to do something different every year. Last year was blue and silver and the year before was red and gold. This year, it'll be blue and silver again, but with blue tree lights instead of just clear ones.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? I usually dread it, especially if I have to drive through it, but I want snow on Christmas. It's not Christmas without snow on the ground :)

12. Can you ice skate? No. One step on the ice and I'm flat on my ass :P

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? My first REAL leather jacket that my parents got me three years ago. Cost them over $200 and it's still in perfect condition cause I take such good care of it :)

14. What’s the most important thing about the holidays for you? Being with my family and friends. It's not Christmas without them.

15. What is your favorite holiday dessert? My mom's homemade dark fruit rum cake. Soooooooooooo good!

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? The Christmas parties!

17. What tops your tree? The last few years has been this gorgeous angel that holds candles that lights up. She was a gift from my favorite aunt :)

18. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? I like getting gifts, but I love giving more. I love finding the perfect gift for someone I love and seeing their faces light up when they open it :) . Makes me feel all warm inside.

19. Candy Canes? Only if they're fruit flavored. I can NOT stand anything mint.

20. Favorite Christmas show? The Year Without Santa :3 . I'm in love with the Snow Miser <3

21. Saddest Christmas song? Dunno......I guess Elvis Presley's Blue Christmas is kinda depressing :(

22. What is your favorite Christmas song? My favorite carol is Oh Holy Night and my favorite song is Santa Baby

23. Favorite Christmas movie? It's a toss up between The Grinch (the live action) or the Muppets' Christmas Carol. I've already watched both movies several times

24. How long do you leave up Christmas decorations? Until after Old Christmas Day, which is January 6th.

25. What kind of cookies do you leave for Santa? When I was younger, it was choco-chip with a glass of white milk and I always left a carrot out for the reindeer :P

If you could spend a day with any fictional character, who would it be and what would the two of you do?


This is an easy one :P . Dean Winchester from Supernatural. Though I'd probably just sit there and stare at him and make him feel uncomfortable :P lol

Do you prefer fiction or non-fiction? Explain why.


I prefer fiction, unless I see a biography on someone I like or a book about real things I like :)
