The 12 Days of Blogmas: Day 2

Blackbird wants me to take part in her Christmas meme, and I will, if only to convince her that my threat to unlink her was just a joke. It's really OK that her son got a Wii for Christmas, while mine lay there sobbing on a heap of Cabbage Patch Dolls and Tickle Me Elmos.

So, without further ado, What I Got for Christmas:

Because chicks dig getting appliances for Christmas, the Sonicare Elite.

Because the 21 books he gave me two weeks ago for my birthday were only an hors d'oeuvre, the latest Artemis Fowl book.

Because red is my color--mine, not yours, not Christmas's, not Valentine's Day, mine--a ring with rubies. For which, I hasten to add, he did not pay retail.

And now, what I'm glad I didn't get for Christmas:

A seven-foot tall silver aluminum Christmas tree. Even if it had come with the revolving stand and colored lights ... I'm just not that post-modern.

A Christmas-themed sweater. In this case, Santa's face would have ended up on my right nipple.

Chest waders. I don't know ... they're practical, and they certainly look comfortable ... and if I dropped the Sonicare down them, things could get interesting ... but they're just not me.

I hereby tag:

Bridget of Idiot Eradication
Diesel of Mattress Police
RW of Chasing Vincenzo
Sarah O. of Lemon Life
Susie Sunshine of The Underpaid Kept Woman

n.b. Here are the rules, if you're interested:

1. Players start by listing three things he/she got for Christmas.
2. Then they list three things he/she definitely did not want to get for Christmas.
3. Then he/she tags five friends and lists their names.
4. The ones who get tagged write on their blogs about their Christmas wishes, and state the rules clearly.
5. Then tag five more victims. The tagger needs to leave the taggees a comment that says you have been Christmas tagged! and tell them to read the tagger's blog.


  1. DAMN -
    I've always wanted that ring.
    Wanna trade it for something...something white, and um, Japanese and um...for KIDS.

  2. Oh, the thing about dropping the sonicare down the waders cracked my shit right up!

  3. And more... much more than this... I did it myyyyyyy waaaaaaaaayy....

  4. HURRAH! I hate memes, but I am pumped to even be named in your blog, so I will oblige you.
