Ten on Tuesday

Ten on Tuesday is hosted by Chelsea over at Roots and Rings - and this week we're using her questions!

1. What did you get for Christmas?
I'm 34.  It isn't really about what I get for Christmas anymore... but I got some money from my mom (some of her casino winnings from the cruise that have been put in my travel fund), some awesome Aveda products from one of my BFFs, the best sign in the world from my buddy Steve (it'll be a whole post on it's own at a later date)... and lots of cards from friends with family pictures - which are awesome in themselves.

2. Have you taken down your Christmas decorations?
I only put up the Canucks tree - and since they are 9-3-1 since it went up, I'm not taking it down for awhile.  If they lose three in a row I think it'll be the end of the tree.

3. What did you do for New Years Eve?
I had a volunteer shift at the World Junior Hockey Championships until 11ish and then I took the c-train to Olympic Plaza in downtown Calgary and watched the CityTV bash - saw live performances with George Canyon and Down with Webster.  It was cold.

4. Do you like accents?
Hellz ya.  I wish I could just pay a guy with a Scottish/Irish/Australian/New Zealand/South African accent to whisper sweet nothings to me all day long.  Maybe when I win the lottery.

5. What kind of television do you have?
I actually have a 42" flatscreen in the living room, a 32" flatscreen in the bedroom and the 13" tube TV I got in high school from my mom in the spare room.  I like my cable TV.

6. Did you make any changes at the beginning of 2012?
Well, I slept until after noon - I haven't done that in a long time.

7. What’s the last book you read and do you recommend it?
Some romance-y type novel by Debbie Macomber - she writes the best Christmas romance novels and I read two or three a year.  Now that I have a Kobo I plan on reading far more often!

8. Do you stay current on celebrity gossip?
Only through Twitter.  I really don't give a damn who's getting married/divorced/having babies/committing adultery/gaining weight/losing weight etc. I'd rather get caught up on hockey statistics.

9. Do you know the words to Bohemian Rhapsody? Gangstas Paradise? Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?
Yes. Yes... and yes.  As a matter of fact I am now singing Fresh Prince in my head right now.

10. What is your favorite education television show?
I don't really watch education shows... but I do watch a fair number of HGTV - does that count.  I have a *slight* crush on Scott MacGillivary of the show Income Property - he teaches me things... now if only I had a house that needed an income suite remodelled.
