Hi all!!

I've been lazy and was post-poning answering this as much as I could. But I figured I'd help my santa out a little bit. xD Sorry for the delay!

 

Questionnaire: Favorite Type of Food (i.e. Italian, Mexican, McDonald's, Burger King, etc):

Probably something spicy. And I mean both spicy as in hot, or spicy as in cinnamon-y or vanilla-y etc...

I eat a lot of salads. I'm not vegan or anything. I don't really like doughy things. I definitely prefer chocolate rather than cookies or stuff like that. I do love nuts as well. Cashews are my favorite. I also love blueberries but I enjoy all berries. I do like yogurt as well.

Oh, but unless it's like prepackaged try not to send me food, because I live on the Dominican Republic and I have my mail forwarded from the United States.

Favorite Scent (i.e. Fruity, Vanilla, Flowery, etc):

I do like Vanilla and I like when things smell clean, like soap or bleach. But I'm really not a scent person. I would not enjoy a candle as a gift xD. Hey, at least that narrows it down a bit.


Favorite Hobby (i.e. Scrap booking, Photography, things you collect, etc):

I do Yoga, I like to write and I play the piano.


Favorite books or types (romance, true store, mystery or just one you would like):

Fantasy, all the way. I kind of like sci fi as well. But Fantasy is where my heart truly is. Magic, wizards, stuff like that.


Favorite animal:

Tarsiers and/or Deers.


Favorite movies or types (romance, comedy or just a DVD/VHS you would like):

Again, Fantasy. I love superhero movies, so anything marvel or dc is great. Yes, I like the DC movies xD. Also like Sci fi.

My favorite movies are the Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings movies.


Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like:

I mostly listen to soundtracks. As in instrumental soundtracks. Neo-classical music. Classical, Romanticism music (Liszt is my favorite composer), stuff like that. 


Do you collect anything?

I collect pins. So like the ones on this link:

https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRHKmOKv0Erl6mNsPums3C0_mCTFPRMBZVPQjlnpobegSmq2LIJ3g <---- YES

Definitely NOT like the ones on this link:

http://d310a9hpolx59w.cloudfront.net/product_photos/54807/ButtonBAck_original.jpg <----NO


Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need?

I don't need anything really. Anything you get me I will probably like, except for a button pin xD JK... even though I don't collect those, I'll still hold it dear. So don't stress too much.

What is your favorite:


a. Color? Silver
b. Type of candy? Chocolate (white, dark or milk) <-- kind of in that order, but not really, they're all really close.
c. Type of munchie? Chocolate, Peanut Butter or Cashews, I also love blueberries! Lately I've been loving caramel popcorn.
d. Puzzle to do? Jigsaw Puzzles and/or rubik's cubes. I like most puzzles really. 

Do you collect anything for Christmas? (i.e. certain types of ornaments, nativities, snowmen...etc.) .

Not really. I guess christmas pins apply here.


What type of hobbies do you have? Yoga, Piano playing, writing.

If you were going to theme Christmas with just one word... what would it be? Magical.

Big family Christmas with everyone down to 2nd cousins...or just immediate family in their jammies? Immediate family, but we dress up.

Favorite Christmas movie and why? Christmas everyday. It's an old christmas tv movie that my sisters and I used to watch all the time when christmas came.

Religious or non-religious Christmas/Chaunaka/

Religious. Catholic.

If you could spend Christmas in any one of these places, which one would you choose and why:
a. A beach on a tropical island just a few very close family or friends, be lazy and open presents and then have a non traditional dinner including Pina Coladas and BBQ shrimp, wearing swimsuits, Bermuda shorts and tank tops
b. Tiny cabin in the woods, fire going, very rustic, warm and cozy with your close family and friends, wearing jeans and sweaters.
c. Biltmore Estates, full regalia, all glitter and glitz, all your close family and friends, wearing black tie and velvet
d. NYC Christmas, Park Avenue, last minute hustle and bustle, haute couture with a 4 course meal and champagne with 50 of your favorite people. Wearing, of course. the latest fashion favorites.

I guess it's kind of a mix of B and C. I like the closeness of B, but I like dressing up a bit (not like for a gala, but at least a bit more fancy than normal) even if just for dinner.


Favorite Christmas music

O Holy Night.


What is your Christmas morning like"

a. chaotic
b. slow and relaxed
c. organized, but fast paced
d. "Christmas is HOW SOON???!!!!"
e. all of the above.

B.

Name something you want but will never buy for yourself, just because you cannot see yourself being that flamboyant.

I can't really think of anything here. Well, I guess I would buy like an original replica of a Hogwarts Robe or like Gandalf's Robe. Just like the ones in the movie.


What sizes do you wear (optional answer if you would prefer to not have clothing)

It depends. Probably the smallest size available. If they have XS it will probably fit me. I can't really buy in some stores because they wont fit properly. I'm a small guy. Oh, yeah, I'm a boy 5'5'' and I weigh like 130 pounds. So yeah I'm pretty small.

What colors are in your home:
I live with my parents so I'd rather not have home stuff. I don't really have a say on the decor xD.

What style is your home decorated in? (i.e. ethnic, country, southwestern...etc

See above.


Anything else your SS should know about you?

Just get something that kind of reminds you of me. I know you probably don't know me, but I hope that after reading this you get an idea. If not ask Lany, she'll probably point you in the right direction ;). As I said, I'll probably enjoy whatever you get me. Just being in the game and connecting is what counts. =D

Do you have any wish lists?

Not really.
