Healing Incantation from Tangled
"What Once Was Mine"

Flower, gleam and glow
Let your power shine
Make the clock reverse
Bring back what once was mine

Save what has been lost
Bring back what once was mine

What once was mine

Do you find holiday gift-giving more pleasurable or onerous?

I loooove buying presents for people!  At the risk of sounding conceited, I think it's one of my greater talents, lol.  I really get into the gift-giving process, trying to think of the most perfect gift for that someone, remembering their likes and dislikes, etc.  I actually enjoy giving gifts more than receiving them.  I guess that's because, on more than one occasion, I've received a gift and wondered WHAT IN THE WORLD WAS THIS PERSON THINKING for giving it to me?! 

For example, on one of my birthdays, a really close family friend (who has known me for years) gave me what was clearly a gift with purchase from the Iman make-up collection.  I'm not even dark-skinned!!  I would never have been able to use it.  I know it's the thought that counts, but I would have preferred that she said, "Sorry, I didn't have time to get you a gift" or "Sorry, I'm a little broke but I'll make it up to you" rather than give me a half-assed one. 

I would prefer not to get a gift rather than get one where the person clearly didn't give it or me much thought and just did it for the sake of giving me one.  If that makes me sound horrible, well...

J'aime la Tour Eiffel et l'Arche de Triomphe. Je pense que les deux sont les plus belles points de repère dans la monde! J'aime aussi "La Marseillaise".
