I would like to add these boring thoughts to my Christmas day posting.

A. I'm so glad Christmas is finally over. I don't remember the Christmas season starting in August when I was growing up. I've really seen department stores with Christmas items out in summer. My radio station was playing Christmas carols nightly BEFORE Thanksgiving. Christmas lights were up before Thanksgiving. I'm so burned out on Christmas by mid-December. Each year I think I won't get sick of seeing my own Christmas tree, and each year I'm ready to strangle it by Christmas day.

B. I don't think people should be allowed to exercise on public streets on Christmas day. I don't exercise on normal days, but seeing people committed enough to jog by my window on Christmas day while I'm stuffing myself with pie is really annoying. Be with your family!!! Relax! Stop worrying about your heart for one day! Gah!

C. I think the sexual innuendo ("in YOUR endo!"--The Todd from Scrubs) in the song "Santa Baby" is weird considering the season. "Hurry down my chimney tonight...come trim my tree..." Seems a leap from songs of the Christ Child. Weirdness.

"I'll Be Home for Christmas" is a huge Christmas favorite that drives me crazy. If someone tells me, "I'll be there. You can count on me," then I think it's a sure thing. The part where the singer says all that and then adds "if only in my dreams" is what annoys me. I'm too anal for that. Every freakin' time I hear that song I think, "That's no kind of RSVP! How do I know how many places to set at the TABLE!"

D. I can't think of anything else I wanted to add because Ironman is belching into my 2 year old son's face and my son is laughing hysterically.

That is all.


  • You make a very interesting point about "Santa Baby." I hadn't really thought about that before.

  • We call "Baby It's Cold Outside" The Date Rape song.

  • Wonderful to have you back, please post pics of the kids when you have time!

    Santa Baby is such a cute song-- Santa is a grown man after all-- and is allowed to be flirty ...and I've heard he's been jogging and slimming down, too! Santa is my fave!

    Sesame Street had a similar song--"I Want a Monster to be My Playmate" something like that! all in fun.

  • I always thought the way in which Eartha Kitt sung the original "Santa Baby" was a bit suggestive, but I have to admit that it never occurred to me that "Hurry down my chimney tonight..." could be a double entendre...

  • Welcome back and it sounds like business as usual at the Disorderly household!

    PS: burping IS funny! Vulgar...but amusing!

    Hope you have a great new year!

  • I love the Date Rape Carol! Also, my most fave is "Santa Clause got stuck in my Chimney". And I quote, "there he was in the middle of my chimney, roly, poly, fat and round. There he was in the middle of my chimney, not quite up, and not quite down."

    Don't you know that's why Santa is so jolly? He knows where all the naughty girls live!

  • Happy New Year! Hopefully this next year will go much better for you than the challenges of this last one.

    Yes, it is sad that I'm blogging tonight. The baby is sick, so my wife went to our friend's party while I take care of a sick baby. She owes me!

  • Maybe the Santa Baby girl had Wolf Crotch, and that's why her tree needed trimming.

  • i have never eaten as much as i have done this holiday season...but i was at one party stuffing myself with celery why? b/c i had so many carbs and meats for the 5 prior days...i was happy for greens.

  • since reading this--almost any song could be imagined to be filthy--funny i never looked at it that way before!

    By Blogger d. chedwick bryant, at Sun Jan 06, 01:11:00 PM  

  • Hi Jen, I'm glad the holidays are over too.

  • The only good Santa Baby has Eartha Kitt purring it.


    oh, and yeah... what kevin said.

    I chaperoned a middle school dance this evening... kids went wild when the DJ played Save a Pony, Ride a Cowboy... assistant principal... he wasn't so wild about the suggestiveness of that tune. I could think of a few others that are twice as bad. ;-)

  • Well I guess belching is better than farting in one's face.
