YAY. But tooooooo expensive for me
You can't start a day without morning coffee: Yes or No
No - I am trying to kick the caffine habit:
Should Gordon Joesph Levit be the next Batman?
How much of your 2012 resolutions were realized:
All of them.
Approximately Half of them.
Making new year's resolutions:
Always yay. No guarantee if I'll come through, of course.
For spare time: Reading books or writing about anything you want.
Jingle bells is jolly and all and memorable and full of cheer, but definitely I choose:
Rudolph with his nose so bright … ! The song, the story and Rudolph himself are all iconic, derivative, reflexive, and universally engaging and imaginative.
FAVORITE CHILDHOOD MEMORY
Opening presents on Christmas Day!
Ahhh, yes! My favorite childhood memories have to do with the excitement and magic of Christmas too (several very special Christmases and how magical our parents made them seem. In particular, I recall one Christmas when my older sister was old enough to stay up late with the adults, but she didn't spoil it for us younger siblings -- my older sister actually came upstairs later and told us this great story about helping Santa put the gifts under the tree and eating cookies with him, and we were all starry-eyed and we believed her! Now that's a wonderful and special older sister!)
I pick Apple Cider (altho' I do enjoy egg nog too -- I recently found this wonderful non-dairy Coconut Milk Egg Nog which is delish!)
Favorite Childhood Book:
Dr. Seuss (all of the books, esp. How the Grinch Stole Christmas; The Cat in the Hat)
The Secret Garden
The Black Stallion
My Friend Flicka
Little House on the Prairie (entire series)
Beverly Cleary's Ramona and Beezus series of books
Everything about Christmas when I was a kid just seem sooooooo special to me! Even Christmas dinner although my mom is far from the best cook. Hehehehe
1. Secret Garden, 2. The Black Stallion, 3. Peter Pan, 4. Treasure Island
Charlotte's Web and Peter Pan. Captain Hook was really scary that I used to have nightmares
What was your worst nightmare as a child? Both literally and really.
permanent separation from my family
dreaming or daydreaming?

I can call the moon a pear, but it doesn't make it so. -- kwanfan1818
Fave horror flick:
Nightmare on Elm Street
Hills Have Eyes
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
I'm not a big fan of horror flicks, and I haven't seen any of above in entirety (tho' of course I've heard all about them and seen clips). Just not a fan. There was a funny vampire horror movie set in New York that I did see years ago -- I can't remember the name of it. I guess some found Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter a good book and movie ... I'm just not that interested.
I'll go with Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds; and re vampire movie: The Lost Boys (oh, and I did see Jack Nicholson in Stephen King's The Shining)
ETA: I saw the movie 1408 with John Cusak and Samuel L. Jackson a few years ago, and it was definitely scary; also I did see Silence of the Lambs way back when. It was extremely intense and scary -- I remember I lost a favorite hat in the theater where I saw that movie -- I blame the movie
Also, Fatal Attraction and Seven (Se7en) were also scary movies, if not conventional horror flicks.
Favorite Christmas movie:
A Christmas Carol
Miracle on 34th Street
It's A Wonderful Life

It is an indication how many movies I have seen that I have watched all the movies you mentioned.LOL
Miracle on 34th Street
How do you drink your coffee:
With cream & sugar
Do not drink coffee
Do not drink coffee. (Makes me gas-y.) Don't smoke either. I think I'm a pretty neat person in that way, kinda weirdly proud of myself.
Star Trek or Star Wars?
