I HEART You Tube!!

Gee, I'm So Glad Rich And I Decided Not To Get Each Other Anything For Christmas...

Yep...You've read that right...

We decided that we are not getting each other gifts this year...

Since we decided that we weren't going to get each other anything, we thought it would be nice to use the money that we were going to spend on gifts for each other to remove the icky-worn down carpet and put some Pergo flooring down instead.

And if we are gonna put nice new flooring in the room, maybe we should get a new couch and chair for the room as well because the old couch and love seat are pretty beat up.

And Hey! Best Buy is having a sale on their flatscreen 40" lcd hdtvs...Gotta get one of those too...(Currently sitting in the dining room)....

And I just have to get a nice rug for the room...

Yep...and the new custom roman shades I ordered are gonna come in a week or so...

Then all I'll need is some throw pillows for the couch...oh and new lamps...because they are not gonna match the red roman shades....And ya know red does not match burgundy...

The (almost) end result? I think getting ourselves Christmas gifts would've been a whole lot cheaper!

The Christmas Card That Never Was...

Friday, December 15, 2006

*Gasp* This Post Has Absolutely Nothing To Do With Christmas...

This made me giggle. (Yeah, I'm a little bored today.)

Have Yourself A Funky, Funky, XMas....

So I've been listening to the radio station that plays Christmas music 24/7 for the past three weeks and I have a complaint. Not once have I heard 'Funky, Funky, XMas' by New Kids on the Block. Not once! I'm sure the radio station could manage to not play Paul McCartney's "Simply Having A Wonderful Christmastime" for just one hour. I just can't imagine why they are not playing it on the radio....I mean with verses like;

"He said hay - said what - he said you - I said what
He said you left the fire burning and I burnt my butt
So now I've learned you've got to turn the fireplace down
So Santa won't get burned"

Hello?....Doesn't that spell Christmas classic to you? Yeah, I thought so too!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with FFC by NKOTB...Here are the complete lyrics because I know you will make this a Christmas-MUST to listen to every year.

Funky, Funky, Xas by New Kids on the Block

Ho, ho, ho, oh, little train, my little elf, another great christmas.
Ah, man, its boring, its boring, same thing every year,
So lets have a funky christmas!

Have a funky funky christmas, have a funky funky christmas.
New kids on the block, lets rock, its christmas time.
Were gonna celebrate it with a rhyme.
Danny d, are you ready? - ready as Ill ever be
Steady - you know, joey joe is ready
Jordan and jon, yeah, come on, we got a funky, funky christmas going on.

Have a funky...
Funky christmas and a funky new year, I swear we got ourselves a party here
Girls on the floor knows our posse at the door
Should I stop - nah cool - heres more of this song, a funky christmas melody
cause jordan k feels so christmasy
Throw your hands in the air pause, kick the ballistics santa claus

Have a funky...
Sneaking downstairs on christmas eve
I saw a sight that you just wouldnt believe
St. nick by the fireplace dusting off his head with a frown on his face
He said hay - said what - he said you - I said what
He said you left the fire burning and I burnt my butt
So now Ive learned youve got to turn the fireplace down
So santa wont get burned

Have a funky...

Have a funky...
Slipping and sliding through the city streets
Ill be in town getting down to the christmas beat
Its danny d Im here with christmas cheer
No feeling to end the party of the year
Its going Im showing fresh rhymes Im throwing
Its snowing outside but we ho-ho-hoing
Santas on the way, sleigh bells are ringing, swinging, everybody start singing

Have a funky....

Its christmas, can you swing this?
Funky, dope jam top on your christmas list, do you dig this?
Boy, there aint no twist, just something you wish for and you almost missed huh
Funky christmas and a happy new year, how could you be booing it
With donnie d doing it?

Have a funky....

Ho, ho, ho, this is the mc santa claus and my elf little joe
Yeah, merry christmas, merry christmas, we gonna kick the ballistics
Of our christmas wishes.

What Would Danny Tanner Do?

About a week ago Christian asked me THE questions of all questions. No, it wasn't THE question about where babies come from (because...duh... everyone knows babies just 'appear' or are brought by the stork or perhaps on some occasions the "beerman" puts a baby in your belly as a thanks for drinking all of the beers the night before (hey, it's happened, but thank God not to me!)...but anyway...) It was THE Santa Claus question. Christian was sitting at the kitchen table doing his homework and I was in the family room making a grocery list. Out of the blue he asked,

"Is Santa real?"

All I have to say is thank goodness my face was turned away from his, because it had that look of 'oh shit' written all over. I remembered that feeling oh so well... It brought me back to my school days when one of my teachers would catch me off guard and ask me a question to a problem that I didn't know the answer to. (Believe it or didn't happen too much.) Oh the bullets of sweat that would pour out of my forehead - and sometimes down my back...I'd just want to hide under my desk! And I wanted to hide right then and there too when Christian asked me about Santa, but my big arse couldn't possible squeeze underneath the sofa. So I was pretty much screwed and I knew I couldn't get out of not answering...

I managed to squeak out a "yes" in response to Christian's question. I then asked him why he was asking. He said he was asking because a kid in his class told everyone that there was no such thing as Santa, that Santa is just your mom and dad. You know I once had a game plan for this day, but just like what happened at that karyoke bar via 1995 when I swore I was going to do a smoking rendition of "Ice, Ice Baby"...I froze and everything went blank. So, I tried to think if Danny Tanner ever had to answer this question.

My mind went into rewind trying to go through the various Full House episodes that I've watched throughout the years. Danny Tanner - for the most part - had the best advice and knew the right things to say. Sure -- Joey and Uncle Jesse had some great advice too, but Danny Tanner was THE MAN! Let me tell you, I have the best speech prepared if any of my boys are to drive a car into the back of my house. However, sadly I didn't remember any episodes where DJ, Stephanie or Michelle (or Joey) had doubts about Santa.

So I was on my own on this one.

"Well, that's a shame he doesn't believe in Santa. It must be so sad not to believe." I said and then held my breath awaiting cross examination. Right then and there I concluded that if Christian was going to keep pressing the issue then I may have to tell him the truth about the whole Santa thing (which would've kill me). I looked over at Christian and I could see the wheels spinning. He looked over at me and said,

"Yeah, I feel sorry for him too."

I was so relieved! Turns out I didn't even need Danny Tanner...

My Co-Workers Are Going To Kill Me, But...

I just have to share!

This Christmas Tree is dedicated to our boss who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. We put the picture on a card and on the inside was written, 'We wish you a Merry Christmas and a SHINEY New Year!'
Needless to say she loved the card!

Oh and as a sidenote, most of us at work have come to the conclusion that one of our co-workers resembles Mini-Me from the Austin Powers movies. Can you spot him? (or is it a her?)

Mason And His "Ho-Ho's"....

This is "Ho Ho" (aka Santa Claus)
And This Is "Ho Ho"... (Ummm...I guess I can see where he would come to that conclusion. I guess even Santa likes to take a joyride on his hog every now and then...)
But this also is "Ho Ho"? (As in Hulk "Ho-Ho"Hogan...?)
I was flicking through the tv channels the other day when I passed by the show 'Hogan Knows Best'. Mason was sitting on the floor beside me and he had a COW crying "Ho Ho!" "Ho Ho!" when I turned the channel. So I turned the show back on and everytime Hulk Hogan came on the screen he got so excited.

Hmmmm....Instead of a TMX Elmo, I wonder if any stores sell TMX Hogan?

One More Thing....

I finally got to make our Christmas cards this past weekend. I did a pretty good job, if I don't say so myself! Here's a preview:

The outside of the card... The inside of the card...

I've Been A Bad, Bad Blogger...

I know, I know...

I'm one of those people who start a blog all gung-ho and then as time goes by the enthusiasm just fizzes out. Enter my excuse: With the holiday preparations invading my family life and a new SAP system that the hospital/university is transitioning over to come January 1st at work...Things are rather crazy as all hell. Don't give up on me though. I do have good intentions on getting back on track in the blogging world.

Well, since I'm here I should give a little update. Let's see....


Thanksgiving went pretty smoothly. I had my inlaws over for Thanksgiving dinner and besides the small breakdown my mil had - with good was the first Thanksgiving without my fil - there was no drama. Oh and the turkey took longer to cook then expected. You know the saying "A watched pot never boils" ? The same goes for a turkey too...with the exception of wanting it to boil. No one got semonila (sp?), so I guess it was good (READ: Safe). ;) I did make a gingerbread trifle and may I say that it was delicious! I was so proud of it that I even took a picture.My Foot

Is so much better! I got to take off the boot almost two weeks ago. It's so nice to walk normal again.

My Exercise

The day after I took the boot off I resumed my exercise regime with a couple of changes. The first one being that I take one day off a week and the second one is that I only exercise ONCE a day!

My Weight
I'm still at 162...which is a good thing considering all the chocolate chip cookies I've been eating as I make them. I pretty much have given up on my pre-resolution resolution though. I'm just going to try to maintain and after the holidays pass...I'll start making a couple of changes to my diet.

The Hamsters

Well, C.R.A.P.'s sister passed away a few days after Thanksgiving. We put her in a baseball card box and buried her in the hamster graveyard (aka the space between my house and the shed). I swear we have about four hamsters buried in that area. I can't help but to wonder if we were ever to sell this house and the new owners wanted to dig up that area between the shed and the house. They'd probably think that we were a hamster-killing cult! But there is just the slutty mother hamster left...


We found the missing Ernie figure about a week after it went missing. Thank heavens! Mason looked so sad wander around holding the Elmo figure and asking, "Nee? Nee?"

Well, that's about it for now. :)
