The Friday Five

1. What holiday or holidays do you celebrate this time of year?
i love new year. i celebrate it twice...ours and losar, the tibetan new year. something about new beginnings....again

2. What was the best gift you have ever received?
it is the thought that counts....truly. i have been sitting here trying to think of the best gift and i can't..... maybe my green huffy bike when i was a kid. i wanted it soooo badly. after all the presents were opened and it didn't appear i was devastated. i knew for sure i would get that bike. sometime later it magically appeared beside the christmas dinner table. how sweet that was!

3. What was the worst gift you've ever given?
i generally give the same thing....immunizations for children in third world countries. the recipients get a little card that tells them so many children have been immunized in their name. it isn't a bad gift at all, but people tend to like something tangible. shame....

4. Where will you be celebrating the holidays? Are you hosting? Going away?
mommy's.... gumbo.

5. If you could spend the holidays with someone who isn't around, who would it be with? Why?
my father.... he was a blast during the holidays. i used to sneak around and open my gifts from him and then re-wrap them. i thought he never knew. but one year he had all of our gifts canned. yes! canned. oh, what joy it was to sit under the tree with a can opener!

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
