Lola’s Holiday Meme

Today’s post is brought to you by Sunday Stealing. When you think of stealing, think of Sunday Stealing.

1. What is your favorite holiday show/animated show?
I happen to like Scrooged… but everyone happens to like that movie, so I can’t possibly submit that as my answer. Instead, I submit The He-Man She-Ra Christmas Special. It makes up for its utter cheesiness with a moment of unbelieveably cheesy cheesiness. After Skeletor saves two children, he then with dismay asks, “This… is Christmas?” He then yechs, “Well, I don’t like feeling good. I like feeling evil, evil, evil!” All laugh.
This... is Christmas?
This... is Christmas?
2. What holiday character do you think you’re most like?
I am like a Polar Elf, thanklessly stamping out thousands of toys per hour ostensibly for the enjoyment of ungrateful children. And who gets all the praise? A fat old man in a red suit.
3. What holiday character does your spouse think you’re most like?
“I don’t know. Who comes up with this stuff?”
4. Favorite Christmas/holiday song?
Here We Come A Wassailing. You don’t hear it as often as the others. Also, it’s not about fictional characters, but a door-to-door party.
5. Most hated Christmas/holiday song?
“Deck the Halls” has basically become the Christmas Jingle and has therefore lost all appeal.
6. If you have an all holiday music radio station when do you start listening to it?
As soon as I step through the doors of the grocery store.
7. If you have an all holiday music radio station do you love it or hate it?
It’s not the station itself I dislike so much as those tired old tunes it dispenses ‘round-the-clock.
8. Have you ever wrapped yourself as a Christmas present?
No, but now that you mention it, I think I’ll go make a festive holiday suit out of wrapping paper scraps.
9. Who is Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer’s father?
Some say it was Dasher, some say it was Comet. Others say it was Santa Claus himself, and this was why Rudolf has had preferential treatment ever since that foggy Christmas Eve. I have my own theory. The father of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is none other than Reddy Kilowatt!kilothumb
10. Do you drive your neighborhood or one near you at night to look at other people’s holiday decorations?
I don’t drive myself around to look at light bulbs, much less the whole neighborhood.
11. When you see a heavily decorated house do you think, ‘oh that’s lovely’? Or do you think, ‘oh criminy, that looks like Christmas threw up all over their lawn’?
Well, it does look like Christmas threw up all over their lawn.
12. Are you counting the days to Christmas with excited anticipation or dread?
I’m not counting until Monday. Then by Tuesday it will be Wednesday. By Wednesday it will be Friday. And by Saturday, it will almost be time to shill for Valentine’s Day.

Holiday of Lust
13. When was the last time you had your photo taken with Santa? Did you sit on his lap?
It was 1981. I don’t remember if I sat in his lap, but I do remember that I asked about a change of address form.
14. Do you make a Christmas list for your spouse or significant other or do you rely on them to pick your gift(s) without a clue from you?
I don’t issue a list, but I do give plenty of clues.
15. When do you put up your tree?
Apparently, in 2009.
16. Real or fake?
It’s not fake, it’s artificial. There’s a difference.
17. When do you take your tree down?
Traditionally, the tree must be up for all twelve days of Christmas. This assumes that you put the tree up on the 24th or 25th. Most people put it up much earlier, and for that reason, I think it ought to go by New Year’s Eve.
18. Do you shop the day after Christmas sales? What do you shop for?
No, thanks. I’m already shopped-out. I think we all are.
19. Is your work/office having a holiday party this year? Will you attend?
They already have and I already did. And if you’re wondering who threw up on your lawn, it was “Christmas.”
20. Do you have your New Year’s Eve Plans set yet?
Yes, I’m going to etch my name into the moon with a giant laser beam.

  1. Okay… I don’t know where you got all of those holiday questions, but I would like to answer a couple, myself. =)

    1. My two fave holiday movies would have to be “Christmas Vacation” and “A Christmas Story.”

    4. Christmas song – if you haven’t heard it, I recommend googling “Dominic the Donkey.” It’s an Italian ditty that for some reason gets stuck in my head every year. =)

    6 & 7. Yeah, we have an all-holiday radio station that begins on Thanksgiving, but I actually created my own station on Pandora. I’m actually listening to it now – and its only 7:30am. Sad, I know.

    Anyway, I found your blog from the IComLeavWe site, and I’m glad I did. The first few posts I got to read were pretty entertaining! Merry Christmas!
