Jingle Bell Rock

1) Sam has affection for this song because, when she was very young, she tap-danced to it for a Christmas recital. Her parents told her she was wonderful. Do you have any memories from a school/church program or pageant -- either as a child onstage or an adult in the audience? as a student, I was always in the school chorus--and regularly performed in concerts

2) Ok, she admits it: After too many cups of holiday cheer, Sam did a few steps of her "Jingle Bell Rock" routine at last year's company Christmas party. Have you ever done anything at a coworker gettogether that you now regret? nope

3) Since that unfortunate Christmas 2012 incident, Sam can't even look at a cup of egg nog. How about you? Do you like egg nog? I do not like it *shudder*

4) For special events, Sam slips on her favorite piece of jewelry: a charm bracelet that once belonged to her grandmother. Do you have a special treasure from a previous generation? sadly, I do not.

5) The only Christmas card Sam has received so far in 2013 is from her insurance agent. How about you? Have any holiday cards arrived yet? not a one

6) Because of the chill in the air, Sam gave her dog his Christmas gift -- a sweater -- early this year. He's already gotten compliments on it. Are there any pets on your gift list? yes, Maggie will get a busy bone!

7) Do you need snow to get "into the spirit?" no

8) Are you going to get/have you gotten a flu shot this year? I did get one.

9) December is an important fundraising month for charities. Here's your chance to plug a worthy cause that means a lot to you. there is a local cancer support group that I knit for and give my charity funds to, as well as the local homeless shelter


  1. The homeless shelters are always good places to give to.

  2. Don't know if my comment went through- blogger kind of went nutty.

    I wish I would have done chorus as a kid.

  3. I don't drink much and don't like to be around those who do...to excess, so I usually left office parties early.

  4. The homeless on a night like tonight would make good use of a sweater.

  5. My dogs always loved the busy bone! Although they usually made quick work of it, and I needed to buy multiples... lol! :D
