I am officially in the Holiday spirit. Yep, big time! This
usually means that my post practice time is spent on my bedroom
floor, picking up the wrapping paper, followed by the scissors,
tape, and the final touch of the bow. Ahh, the beauty of mystery
under that wrapping paper.
I am finally getting my Christmas cards out and sneaking in a
piece of peppermint bark with my cup of tea.
Anyways since its the offseason and I know I usually answer
questions from the media or my fans, I thought it would be fun if I
interviewed myself....questions from Me to Moi. Of course its all
about the Holidays! Check it out here:
Maria asks: what is the best part of the Holidays?
Maria answers: what a stupid question! We're off to a terrible
start already. What could possibly not be fun about the Holidays?
You get to shop, stuff your face with yummy food, open presents,
decorate the tree, and the list goes on and on.

Maria Asks: what is the best gift to give or receive?

candle is always a no brainer...I like the ones from LeLabo.
Maria Asks: everyone knows you like food, a little too much
apparently. So what are your favorites during the month of
Maria Answers: what a kind comment! Thank you for that. I do
appreciate good food. And I appreciate it in quantities. Its either
all or nothing. Smoked ham with mashed potatoes, some cranberry
sauce on the side. Warm apple cider with peppermint bark. Not sure
I have time to answer this question fully.
Maria Asks: do you prefer to shop for presents with friends or
Maria Answers: Solo. I am much more focused.
Maria Asks: what is the ultimate Christmas morning?
Maria Answers: waking up an hour earlier, putting on a cashmere
robe, heading down to the kitchen to make a cup of expresso with
some home made milk foam for everyone (i think thats called a
cappuccino), turn on the only Holiday CD I own( I think its all
about Rudolph, the red nose reindeer), sit around the tree and open
the presents s-l-o-w-l-y.
Maria Asks: what do you do if you dont like a certain
Maria Answers: It depends who the gift is from but I am pretty
much an open book when I dont like something. I dont directly ask
for the gift receipt but I do find a way to change it. But
luckily I have not received many bad gifts.
Maria Asks: well thats all the time we have today. Thank you for
Maria Answers: thought this would never end! Happy Holidays
