it’s noon on the day after Christmas (Boxing Day to some), and the tree is still up? Get going!
…and after. On the way to the garage…
Shh… I’m not dreaming of a White Christmas and will accept a Muddy, 50° Christmas. Green would be better, but I’ll take what I can get.
Irving Berlin probably didn’t have to drive anywhere on Christmas.
Warning: This is what can happen if you buy clearance sprinkles at Aldi and Ollie’s throughout the year. Even red and green frosting couldn’t make these convincing…
See those yellow and white “pills”? They taste exactly like the stick in Fun Dip. And yes, that is a deliberately headless gingerbread man on the bottom. Oh, and I would make every cookie round if I could. My assistant was more daring.
Who knew? Dinosaurs are surprisingly festive, and little Halloween bats add a nice touch! And I’m not a real food blogger, so i didnt worry about cleaning around the cookies. I was just reusing the cookie sheets to save some dishes!
Not my idea. Remember, I like round cookies. I even looked up a 1960s Better Homes and Gardens sugar cookie recipe that included “orange zest” to replicate what I remember from my childhood. My assistant could have done without the zest, though.
Nope, we didnt make these, but hopefully no one will read this caption!
No one sees me adding the milk, but will they eventually notice how long this stuff lasts and how it’s always full? (And how it seems weaker?)
OK, I don’t let it go past the 50-50 mark. We’re at about 85-15 here.
It’s kind of oversized, a little construction-papery, but its message is clear and sincere:
Once upon a time a young girl broke a Santa ornament but fixed that sucker right up. She never told her parents until now.
Parts from the original ornament, a plain ornament snagged off of the tree, glue, correction fluid. Good as new!
Here is a relaxing little scene like one you might see before a Trailer Park Boys live show. Kind of boosts the old Christmas spirit, doesn’t it?
Let’s agree on: “reindeer”, “lightbulb”, “saw it”, etc.
1. “Ho Ho Ho” vs. “in his underwear”
2. “Yippee” vs. “hooray”
3. “Columbus” vs. “George Washington”
Had this book as a kid!
1. I miss baggy clothes.
2. How much substance (ab)use was involved? (Did they know it was Christmas?)
3. Oh, the lyrics. So first world.
4. Sting’s hair… I… can’t… even.
This is actually a more flattering shot of Sting’s ‘do.
A teddy bear with an upside-down smile turns orange in the store window. The store is owned by Mr. Winkle, voiced by Tom Bosley! I know, right?!
Evening his fade…
Mr. Winkle, a man with a small apartment and a big heart…
