CHRISTMAS TAG.


I fear the tag

If someone tags me I would normally tell them to 'piss awf' - but - Nora is my soul sister so here goes.

However, whereas Nora is a self confessed fan of Christmas, I am a self confessed fan of Ebeneezer Scrooge.

But I'll do my curmudgeonly best.

When people say 'Christmas' you immediately think ...
It'll soon be over.

Favourite Christmas memory
(Apart from when Kev turned up on Christmas afternoon, very drunk and carrying a large jar of pickled walnuts) is when I was given my first bicycle. Santa hid it behind the curtain - it was black and smart. My mum didn't do girly.

Favourite Christmas Movie
Wayne's World.

Favourite Christmas character
Favourite Chrismas Object/ornament

More an icon really - it has to be little Robin red breast. He looks cute but he's an aggressive beast who fights to the death to keep his territory.

Plans for Chrismas?
Mind your own business - but it will involve large quantities of fine wine with bubbles .

Is Christmas your favourite holiday?
What? When it goes dark at half past three!

Oh well go on then - Come on fellow curmudgeons - it's on its way, so let's get in the mood.

Merry Christmas Everybody
KAZ

Thanks to Brenda'a online Anagram Generator the word "curmudgeons" translates to
"CONSUME DRUG "

So that's why he was called Robin Cooke then.

Was it the walnuts or Kev who was pickeled?

I was tagged, too. I'll do mine tomorrow.

I can't choose your robin now as it'll seem like I'm copying.

A Merry Christmas to you too!

Funny - I did a meme called Christmas Tag (which I published on my Blogger blog) but it was subtly different. I was asked about my favourite present as a child, not my favourite Christmas memory.

For me that was probably the smell of turkey very early in the morning, and the warmth of the house... it was never cold, no matter how icy outside.

You chose that one on purpose didn't you? Knowing how much I loathe and detest this single which I am forced to listen to at least 10 times a day.

No I don't wish it was Christmas every day.

Bah Humbug!

Oooh, the very bestest piece of Christmas music ever.

Apart from Charles Wesley's 'Hark, how the welkin rings!' of course.

Not anonymous actually, it's just that silly Blogger comments no longer recognises me, so.....
NiC says:

Bah Humbug AND Happy Christmas from me. And thanks for Slade. It's never the wrong time for a bit of 70's magic from Noddy and the boys, surely.

Tony:
Excellent - best anagram since - Britney Spears and Presbyterians.

Murph:
Kev was double pickeled (pickled?) by the time I'd aimed the contents of the jar in his direction.

Rimshot:
Thanks dear - wot no sarcasm, insults, glib remarks?
Amazing what Christmas can do

Geoff:
Oh I can't be doing with plagiarism - you'll have to have the Christmas fairy - sorry!

Diddums:
My Christmas morning memory was of waking up to see the bulge in the bottom of the previously empty Christmas stocking. I never ate the orange but it was the big question of 'How it got there' that was exciting.

Roses;
Ah - I detect a fellow Ebeneezer fan
Would Wizzard have been better? " Oh I wish it could be Christmas every d-a-a-ay!

mj:
I thought you'd be coming round for some wine with bubbles.

Dave:
Hope your welkin rings this Christmas!

NiC:
That one is top of the list of 'should be annoying records that get you going in spite of yourself'.

Shouts up 'sorry' to Roses.

Noddy Holder and Dave Hill are gods who stride the earth like Colossi. If anyone disagrees with that, I'll come round to thump them with a cricket bat.

Happy Kazmas.

no no no ..please not Noddy.
Well answered Kaz... Nice to see Gonzo... :O)

Have a great Christmas... may you never have a hang over, never do the washing up, never be the Driver for the Night... and may you never ever eat Yellow Snow.

Thanks to many glasses of naughtiness: many blessings of love, light and laughter of the Winter Solstice to you and yours (upstairs).

Bah Humbug!

That British Robin, Erithacus Rubecula, is such an anemic little twerp...PFFFT!

Our Robin, unfortunately labelled Turdus Migratorius, I kid you not, is twice as long but equally psychotic. They will spend all day attacking themselves (their reflection) in the window..DUH!

I appreciate your candor.
The "Hollow Days" are a pain in my Turdus Migratorius as well.

6:19 pm  
Blogger MJ said...

I'm here to back HE up on the Turdus Migratorius.

Back before our Canuckistan two dollar currency was a coin called The Toonie or Twonie, we had a paper two dollar bill.

Our two dollar bill featured a picture of the Turdus Migratorius and this Latin name was the source of much mirth for schoolchildren across the nation.

And the icing on the cake was that the bill was brown.

STARR MERCY SHIM to you too View

Stitch:
With your usual understated panache!

The humbugs are on me this Christmas.

Betty:
YEAH!
Better than that poncy Greg Lake stuff innit?

You too.

Wom:
Thanks for the lovely thoughts
I shall never ever ever be the driver for the drunken mob again.
I’ll just settle for a taxi and the hangover.

Roses:
Winter solstice? Thanks for introducing a note of optimism.
The future looks bright(er)

Humbug? Will an Everton mint be OK?

HE:
OK – so your robin is bigger than our robin – but you have more room for him over there haven’t you?

Re that pain in the turdus – just go easy on the mince pies and brandy truffles.

mj:
Unfortunately I didn’t find out that our common blackbird was called turdus merula until I was 49.

So I had to snigger in private.

Noddy rocks! Well I'd have to say that as he is from my home town and Slade were the first band I saw live.

Enjoy that fine wine with bubbles and no doing the birdie dance.

I'm going to wish you a merry Christmas anyway, even if you are trying to be curmudgeonly about it.

I've wished you a good one at your place - but I hope it's twice as good as that.

Middy:
No chance of the Birdie dance - I do try to preserve an air of dignified sophistication.
Have a good one.

Beth X 3:
You will be pleased to know that I'm getting in the mood - thanks to the hospitality of Wetherspoons.
Enjoy the holiday - you deserve it.

Rimshot:
I'm a happy girl now and looking forward to whatever Christmas can throw my way.
But it's usually all down hill after Christmas day isn't it?
OOps - Must try harder.
