in the holiday spirit.....

it's going to be a busy, busy week (cards to write, presents to wrap, mostly-packed suitcases to fill with fresh underwear/socks, and lots of work to undo the damage done to my credit card recently.....), but i have a little time to share some of the ol' holiday spirit.

first, before we start, this link should be fixed. if you click on it between 10am and 3pm est today, you should be able to hear me filling in for our regular midday girl. hopefully i'm not too much of an assault on the ears.

here's the list i found to talk about today. by sharing some of these with you, i figure i'm performing a public service.

got any other good lines? leave 'em in the comments- i'm running out of things to say about some of the treasures that have been bestowed upon me over the years.......

here are some other tips i found for dealing with bad presents from good people.

finally, here's a helpful test to determine if you're a bad gift giver.

and a few other mindless odds and ends:

Your Elf Name Is...

Grumpy Hot Chocolate


You Were Nice This Year!

You're an uber-perfect person who is on the top of Santa's list.
You probably didn't even *think* any naughty thoughts this year.
Unless you're a Mormon, you've probably been a little too good.
Is that extra candy cane worth being a sweetheart for 365 days straight?


and, appropriately:

You Are a Losing Lottery Ticket!

Full of hope and promise.
But in the end, a cheap letdown.


finally, i found this festive little time-waster.

hey- that could give me an excuse not to start scribbling xmas cards for at least another half an hour........

Okay, I can't stop laughing. My Elf Name is "Booty Hot Chocolate", apparently Santa is going to spank me because I've been naughty, and which crappy Christmas gift am I?? FRUITCAKE. The description? "You taste like nothing else in this world. And get ready, you're about to get tossed!"

LOL!

Have a great holiday, Duff. See ya around the new year! :)

just thinking said...

I did that was I naughty or nice quiz, too, and it also said I was nice... which is a lie because I know I've been a little, no, a lot naughty this year...

Naughty doing what? I'll never tell! muhahahaha!
