Christmas Meme

A lovely holiday meme by Dancing Through (Formerly Princess Stinkfoot)

Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?

Egg Nog and a
healthy dose of Imodium AD.

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?

Separate wrapping paper for the "Santa" gifts. Learned this trick from friend Carol who also assembles EVERYTHING that can be assembled and places it under the tree unwrapped.

Colored lights on tree/house or white?

White outside, colored inside. Just like me.

Do you hang mistletoe?

Nope. But I should!

When do you put your decorations up?

After begging husband 3 times to get them down from the attic. This rule of 3 times/3 days begging also is also the standard that must be followed to get him to hang a picture.

What is your favorite holiday dish?

Crab legs with w
arm butter. It's been our holiday meal since I was a kid. Yum. Also followed with more Imodium AD.

Favorite Holiday memory as a child?

On Christmas Eve we always took a drive to look at the holiday lights. One of my parent's would forget something inside the house and then hurriedly throw all the presents under the tree before we left. Once I cracked operation forgottopee it was my turn to fake a trip and play Santa. No one told me that one of the wrapped gifts was a birdcage. WITH a bird in it. It wasn't the bird's best holiday as she was lobbed across the room in her cage, and then rolled under the tree.

When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?

What? Take it back!

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?

We celebrate at my folks on Christmas Eve. Husband's father's on Christmas Morning and husband's mother's on Christmas Afternoon. It's nonstop present opening. It's kinda gross. Carol just helped me haul away 4 garbage bags of toys from our playroom for Goodwill in preparation for this Christmas. Necessary because all of the grandparents try to outdo each other with the LARGEST holiday gifts possible every year and I need some floor space.

This Christmas I'm taking note and anyone who gives us a big ass gift will also get a big ass gift in return next year. A gift picked out by your grandchildren who insist on seeing it every time they come to your house. You are all on notice!

How do you
decorate your Christmas Tree?

REAL tree of course. With a hodge podge of ornaments, vintage bubble lights and those chunky cool bulb lights.

Snow. Love it OR DREAD IT ??

Snow. Love it. Sludge. Hate it.

Can you ice skate?

to the no! Not even with double blades.

Do you remember your favorite gift?

Baby Alive man. Till I rotted her insides out shoving everything I could find in her mouth. Kind of like my current eating plan.

What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you?

Why the little Baby Jesus of course!

What is
your favorite Holiday Dessert?

More eggnog. More Imodium AD.

Which do you prefer giving or Receiving?

Both bab

What is your favorite Christmas Song?

Candy canes?

Yum. For the first 2 minutes and then too minty. Though when sister and I were little we would get those candy cane sticks that were as thick as Santa's (censored). We would only be allowed to eat them for 5 minutes at a time and then put them away for later. My mom would actually set a timer. They became big saliva sticks after a few days. Yum.

What about you?

I love how everything has a side of Immodium. You kill me Lotta. I'll be doing this meme later, drat I to go to my place of employment today. Drat. How sad is it that my 8 hours a week cut into my busy schedule of blogging. Loved the pantie thing from yesterday. Well of course love you Lotta.

PamKittyMorning said...

OH. MY. GOD. I never saw that movie and I am absolutely dying.

Janet a.k.a. "Wonder Mom" said...

You rock Lotta! Thanks for playing!

I totally had Baby Alive....I rotted her insides too, I had ants crawling in and out of her mouth!!!!

Lotta said...

PKM - Got to have it in the bag at all times. Of course after the Holidays we must then eat lots of Bran to get things moving along again. And that movie is hilarious!

Janet - Ha!

Deanna (Domestic Chicky) said...

I also had Baby alive-mine was lucky enough to get mold up her butt.

Pass the immodium!

Oh, The Joys said...

Wait. I'm supposed to put lights on the house? Sh*t.

Butterfly in Disguise said...

Paige said...

Too busy laughing about "White outside, colored inside. Just like me" to comment...

Monkey Butt's Mom said...

I agree with Paige... that was the best flippin thing I've read on a blog in a long time.


Lotta said...

Paige and Monkey - I can't help it. I wanna get my groove on but I'm stuck in the body of a chunky white suburban housewife.

Heather said...

These answers are helarious! I feel you about the Imodium. It is a running joke at my school. Everyone knows I have stomach issues, and if you need a little Imodium, I'm your gal! Santa leaves things unwrapped at my house too! I also enjoyed the"colored lights answer! You must listen to the "White and Nerdy" song. Sadly, I feel I can relate a little too much!

instant gratification girl said...

no no no! you've got it all wrong.
anyone who gives you a big ass gift should get a big ass NOISY gift that the grandchildren will insist on seeing and playing with everytime they come to their house ;)
and thanks to Heather above, it is with great pleasure that I tag you. Please stop by my blog for all the weird details!

Mommy off the Record said...

A Christmas meme! Oooh, love it. I'm getting so excited for Christmas. Yay!

p.s. I can't believe you compared Santa's penis to a candy cane. I will never look at those candy canes the same way again!
