happy holly daze

click for wallpaper - yes, this is recycled from last year

I had a pretty productive weekend.

Not only did I manage to get all of my shopping done (Chia Pets™ and AA battery stocking stuffers for everyone!), but I also got stupendously drunk as well.

How was your weekend? Are you done shopping?

I am FINISHED the shopping as of 11:30 this morning! Now all I have to do is clean and decorate for the big party Friday. I could use a few drinks right now! Merry Christmas!

Due to unforseen events I had to do my shopping online this year.
It made me miss out on the drinks (non-alcoholic egg-nog anyone?) but it's a great way to forego queues at the cashier's desk!
And there was no need for me either to be forced to listen to Christmas pop tunes I can do without...

you guys are so lucky...
i've been haveing some resolutions with my mom around this time of year!

Gah, wrapping presents, still missing 3...

I still haven't had the time to order one of the things from online.

Online ordering is a ***** and a half...

I can't wait for when I can finally sit down, enjoy some eggnog, and a marathon of Keanu-Matrixy-Goodness.

Much like Herrod, Christmas songs make me want to slaughter the first born innocents.

Except for the Heatmeister/Freezemeister songs. Those are wonderful due to the hatred the two brothers have for each other.

They remind me of the Christmas' of my youth, such as the one at which my brother and I got new Zippos in our stockings and set fire to the flocked tree.

We each got a carton of Kools as well, but that sucked as we didn't smoke menthols. We used them to teach the dog to smoke.

My shopping is done! I wish I could say the same about wrapping presents, but I did make a lot of progress on that over the weekend. I'm such a procrastinator! I tend to put that off as long as possible! I also got a lot of baking done too (made lots of cookies)! Now I just have to get motivated to do some cleaning, which of course is something else I tend to put off forever! LOL

BTW, it's ok to recycle last year's wallpaper. It still rocks! \m/
I remembered that wallpaper from last year and already had it on my computer!

I'm totally anal about christmas. Had my lists (in Excel, mind you)done in early November. Shopping done by the end of November. Tree's up. But still not feeling the spirit. We had -37 celsius today so I'm hoping there's a least a little bit of snow on the way. I need some serious christmas-something to get me going. Now if someone could be kind enough to send Keanu my way, I'm sure my mood would pick least a tiny bit.

hee. I remembered it too. Cool, and I love the Santa in the background. I got my shopping to mail to Alabama done, but I fly out to Denver on Weds. and won't do the rest of my shopping until I get there. I sent some things overseas Saturday, but I have some more stuff to put in the mail tomorrow.

Which won't make it by Christmas... *sob*

Things are just too complicated in my life at the moment...

Posted by: Nudel on December 20, 2004 03:11 PM

V.! I *love* the Heatmeister/Freezemeister song too! I actually bought "The Year Without Santa Claus" on DVD this year. I hadn't seen it on TV since I was a kid, but I'd never forgotten that song.

*I'm mister green Christmas, I'm mister sun...*

Oh, and to answer the question, I have my two trees up, one real, one artificial, along with the other decorations I usually put up. My gifts are pretty much all bought and stuffed into gift bags (couldn't get up the courage to wrap this year). And the cupboard is filled with assorted boxes of chocolate. I guess I'm as ready as I'm gonna get.

I didn't get drunk this weekend, but I sure wanted to *blushes*

...smoking that would be a cute trick! ;-)

still waiting on the keanu days of christmas......

Posted by: tess on December 20, 2004 07:22 PM

Got the tree up, cookies baked, shopping......-sigh-....two more to get...or maybe it was three (pathetic procrastinator)

Posted by: echo on December 20, 2004 11:21 PM

**Nods frantically** yes yes yes we want the Keanu days of Christmas... pleeeeeeze... It made me laugh so hard at work last year I got a row from my boss.

Zen, they just don't air that show any longer it seems. I wait and wait and wait.

The good thing about smoking dogs is that they can easily be trained (by denial) to bum cigarettes from strangers.

This keeps costs down if one doesn't mind the occaissional funky brand.

I've yet to master the addicting of small cats, however. Once I do, I'm going to open for Penn & Teller. Lord knows only Penn (or I) could appreciate fully the forced addiction of small house pets.

And in keeping with a past Keanu related story, ferrets are easily hooked on supposatory morphine. After several weeks, they will happily self-administer.

As for my holidays, I'm spending them alone with a bottle of bourbon while hanging out in a newly created smoking dog fetish room on Yahoo! chat.

Halfway through the bottle I'm going to unwrap and take advantage of myself.

Feel free to stop by. Someone is going to need to remove the pine needles from my back.

Merry Christmas, ladies.

Holly Jolly Christmas
Johnny Marks (c) 1962

Have a holly, jolly Christmas;
It's the best time of the year
I don't know if there'll be snow,
but have a cup of cheer.

Have a holly, jolly Christmas;
And when you walk down the street
Say Hello to friends you know
and everyone you meet.

Oh, ho, the mistletoe
hung where you can see;
Somebody waits for you;
Kiss him once for me.

Have a holly jolly Christmas,
and in case you didn't hear,
Oh by golly, have a holly,
jolly Christmas this year.

Shopping? I was supposed to go Shopping?!! Oh, no... well, what can I grab quickly that's useful for all..oh,yeah, CHEESE!! Cheese is good. Something everyone likes...Can't afford the crackers & olives this year tho. Have a Merry Cheesemas everyone!! Too broke this year to dazzle so it really will have to be the thought that counts. My fave prez I got already--George Carlin's new book "When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops"--it's wonderous,just like Christmas stuff is s'pozed to be...
