Santa, A Reindeer, and some COUGARS!

You know Christmas is right around the corner, when they show Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus is Coming to Town in the same week! How do I know this? Because I sure was sitting in front of the television both nights, impatiently waiting for the shows to come on.  What?  Those are my favorites! Well, Santa Claus is Coming to Town is first and Rudolph is second.  Oh what the hell, Frosty the Snowman is third. Annnd, let's not forget Charlie Brown.  I mean, who can forget his pathetic, poor excuse of a beautiful Christmas tree!? There. Now you know.  Anyway,  I am a big kid when it comes to Christmas.  I gleefully watch the aforementioned shows as if I'm watching them for the first time.  I do that every  year. Yes I know I'm forty-five years old.  The thing is, that inner child, the one that still looks at life in wonder, comes out from time to time and I have no control.  What's so wrong about that?  One of my co-workers reminded me that I could record the shows, this after I realized I was going to work late and wouldn't be home in time.  Duh! Of course I know I can record them, truth be told, I own all four videos! -Not.One.Word.  But it's not the same.  It's just not.  You'll be happy to know, I did make it home in time on both nights. So there!  Tonight was Santa Claus is Coming to Town.  Something about that Somber-town and Kris Kringle's soothing sounding voice, and putting "one foot in front of the other", that gets me every time!  What about you? Do you have a favorite cartoon for the holidays? I'm not talking about today's  robotic-like shows, I mean the classics, you know, from back in the stone ages. 

December also means the party season is upon us.  What am I talking about? Well, lawyers like to party. This is their opportunity to mingle and socialize and "network" (come on, you know they never stop!).  I'm not a lawyer, but I work for one.  So this entitles me to attend as many of the parties as I want to.  This year, I have invited the usual suspects (aka as Michelle and Maricela) to accompany me.  I've deemed us Ambassadors of Cheer -kinda nifty huh? Good times will be had for sure!  I'll be sure and keep you posted on our Christmas-parties tour 2011.  You know, so you can take notes.  Heh.

Alright bloggies, the weekend is upon us!  Saturday morning, my alma mater, the University of Houston's football team, plays Southern Mississippi in the Conference USA Championship game. And I've got just one more thing left to say,
GO COOGS!

Charlie Brown is definitely my favorite. I have a little Peanuts set up instead of a Christmas village.
Looking forward to the party stories. I may miss out on my crazy dance club party due to travel. We'll see!

I used to love watching those shows as a kid each year. But for some reason they don't appeal to me anymore. Not the cartoons, at least. But the old live classics like A Christmas Story and Miracle on 34th Street I love to re-watch.

Good luck to you alma mater!

I like The Grinch the best. I love how he changes at the end. It's my husband's favorite too. I hope you have tons of fun at the Christmas parties! And I hope U of Houston wins!

YRJ- Oh how cute! I saw a display in a Hallmark store of all the characters in a "band" and when you turned the switch on they all play their instruments to Christmas carols! It was so cute!

Yvonne said...

David- Oh that's a fave of mine too as is Immitation of Life and It's a Wonderful Life -as far as holiday movies. Oh and let's not forget, A Chrstmas Story -HILARIOUS! :)

Belle- Interestingly enough, I never could get into the Grinch. I don't like it.

I don't know if I have a favorite Christmas cartoon, but it's comforting to know that they're always on every year without fail. I try to watch as many as I can to get me in the Christmas spirit (though it's been hard lately because the weather in Jersey has been WARM!) and on Xmas day I always watch the yule log and/or A Christmas Story. Wouldn't be Christmas without 'em.

Hope you have fun at all those holiday parties. And enjoy the game tomorrow: your alma mater vs. Brett Favre's, lol.

Insomniac- A Chrstimas Story is a MUST SEE every year! I've seen it a billion times and laugh my head off each time! :) I'm still too upset to talk about U of H's loss. Ugh!!!

I love all four of those cartoons, too! My best friend's name is Maricela. Everyone always tells her beautiful her name is to the point her head is kind of big. Ha! Oh, well. It is pretty.

Ha! I know, I like that name too! At least you have a song after your name, "I love you, Kelley, Kelley, Kelley, Kelley, Kelley..." I hope you used to watch Cheers because if not, then well, you'd miss the funneh. :)
