Saturday 9


1. As you can see, Sam loved giving her annual wish list to Santa. Yet some children are reluctant to climb into Jolly Old St. Nick's lap. Did you enjoy the tradition or were you shy? Or did you by pass it altogether -- either because you wrote him a letter or because your family didn't celebrate Christmas? We always went to see Santa at the local Chas. A. Stevens department store. I didn't especially enjoy it, but I understood that it was important to give the Big Guy my request.

2. Are you currently on the Naughty or Nice list? How did you get there? Nice. Because I'm usually a good person, and when I'm not it's not due to lack of effort.

3. Did you ship any gifts to friends and family this year? If so, which one traveled the farthest? The Ann Taintor tote bag (shown) that went to my oldest friend in Beverly Hills, 2000 miles away. She opened her present already and really liked it.

4. Did you buy yourself a gift this year? I got myself a really nice pair of sunglasses. I hope I don't leave them on the el.

5. What's your favorite holiday-themed movie? Die Hard. And yes, it so IS a holiday movie! John McClane is only at the Nakatomi Building for his wife's company Christmas party.

6. Thinking of movies, Christmas is lucrative for Hollywood. Have you ever gone to a movie theater on Christmas Day? Nope.

7. Have you ever suffered an embarrassing moment at the company Christmas party? Nope.

8. What's your favorite beverage in cold weather? I just bought myself a bottle of Bailey's to make the season bright.

9. What will you remember most about 2012? It was the year my mom died.

But I certainly don't want that to be my last Saturday 9 statement before the holiday. So instead -- 


  1. Merry Christmas to you too! I never understood why someone would want to go to the movies on Christmas Day until this year when I wanted to see Les Miserables and now I live in Podunk instead of LA and it isn't going to be!

  2. I think we all hated being plop down on a strangers lap but the want for presents out weighed all the fear.

    Have a Merry Christmas.

  3. Mmmmmm... Bailey's!!!

  4. Die Hard, yep I'd agree on that statement.
    Bailey's... yummy, over ice for me though.

  5. i have never seen die hard! sorry to hear about your mom :(

  6. Sunglasses are the bane of my existence. I'd love the buy the cheap kinds so I'd have pairs everywhere but since they have to be prescriptions, I pay like a million dollars and then worry about losing them everywhere. Cute bag!
