Friday Five

Willsmama, in a venting opportunity, brings us the following Friday Five

Please tell us your least favorite/most annoying seasonal....
1) dessert/cookie/family food That would have to be the cookies or cake with frosting that turn your lips and mouth annoying colors. I am particularly fond of these when they appear at coffee hour!
2) beverage (seasonal beer, eggnog w/ way too much egg and not enough nog, etc...) That would be it....the over egg, under nog.....I want to be seriously NOGGED by my hot holiday beverage, I mean if I want to drink the cake batter, I'll just go off to the kitchen and have me some!
3) tradition (church, family, other) white elephant gift exchanges.....especially the round robin. Ok we are going to exchange stuff we don't want, but on the outside chance there is one good thing, you won't likely get to keep it. Can someone point out the Christmas spirit here?
4) decoration Pretty much giant plastic anything....but that's just me.
5) gift (received or given) An ex boss once gave me a little reindeer thingy that ...um....excreted black jelly beans....cute! Spirit of the season, eh!
BONUS: SONG/CD that makes you want to tell the elves where to stick it. That would be anything with a chipmunk. And I see now they have a MOVIE. They were cute when I was six but you know that was a few years ago,....I'm just sayin....

You know this was very refreshing! I feel cleansed and ready to begin again. Thanks ws!

Oh no, the reindeer sounds awful!

Confession: I love the chipmunk christmas albums. Someday I might outgrow it...

One can only ohh and ahhh so long at White Elephant exchanges. I prefer to take mine to Goodwill.

Yuck, a pooping present!!

I DETEST white elephant exchanges. They make me want to cry or hide in the bathroom.

You want to be "seriously NOGGED..." I love that expression, and will be borrowing it.

That was one tacky present! And those cookies with the weird frosting--I hear ya!

(I'll also add that the new Chipmunks look sort of creepy...)

LOL @ the Chipmunks - I used to love them, too, around age 6. I've seen the candy-pooping animals at easter, too. Just lovely.

Cheers,
Hedwyg

Reindeer with black jelly beans sounds like adolescent male behavior, which both my son's in their 20's exhibit.

I think my tastes have changed since I was 6 too; not always for the better tho. But I have outgrown the chipmunks.

Pooping reindeer? OMIGOSH!

my grandma had the chipmunks christmas album.

I am so with you on the chipmunks and the plastic yard thingies, especially the inflatable kind.
