Countdown to Christmas! 2 days...

Naughty or Nice?

We're almost there, Christmas freaks, only 2 days to go! Santa surprised me with early Christmas presents this morning; a sore throat and a throbbing headache, and don't forget the lovely red pimple next to my lip. Thanks a lot, Santa! Does that mean that I'm on Santa's Naughty List!? This actually got me to think about the past year, and reflect on my good and, shamefully, sometimes bad behavior.

Let's start with the bad behavior. First of all, I didn't keep any of my New Year's Resolutions, but who does? I didn't eat healthier, exercised regularly or read twenty books. Also, I went to Thailand, where the nightlife encourages bad behavior and having vodka and I-don't-know-what out of a bucket is the norm. I did learn my lesson though after having a hangover for almost three days. Anyway...

Other than that, the only other bad behavior would be my foul language when yelling obscenities to the construction site across the street. They have been working and building and drilling for almost a year, and they seem to get louder every month! I'm working myself up now, just thinking about it. (Mental note: New Year's Resolution #1 Be more patient and count to ten and #2 Buy a good pair of ear plugs.)

Let's move on to the things that should land me on Santa's Nice List. I did join a charity this year, by sponsoring Violet, a dog at Animals Taiwan, a local animal shelter and rescue here in Taipei. I send money every month and they use it to buy her food and other necessities. The money will also be used to get her a wheelchair that she needs because of her spine malformation.

Also, I've worked really hard at my job and gave 110%. Well, I guess that's easy to do when you love your job. But still, I'm very proud of myself for that. Let's see, what else? In general, I just try to be a good person; a good daughter, a good girlfriend, a good friend, a good co-worker, and even a good, friendly stranger.

Maybe Santa got me mixed up with someone else and somehow I landed on his Naught List, or maybe he's just getting a little more strict and is not forgiving me for the Thailand bucket incident. I guess I'll have to wait until Christmas Day to see if I'm, in fact, on his Naughty or Nice List.

  4. You have to be on the nice list, doing that for a sweet child (yes I believe animals are children) It's simply madness to think you'd be on any other list.

  5. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you Liesl!

    greeting card for you!
