Tell the truth, Wednesday

1) I started this post yesterday.

2) I have some great ideas for blog posts but am so swamped by work/holidays/pesky need to sleep that I haven't had a chance to write any of them up (see 1 above). Here's hoping 2011 is a little more organized.

3) I'm risking this coming to fisticuffs, but I'm not a big Sinatra fan. I'll take Bing Crosby over old blue eyes any day.

4) Drinking coffee gives me what my boss calls "crack knee." I secretly like it because someone once told me it helps burn calories faster.

5) I'm kind of dreading the holidays this year. I've heaped the responsibility of a twelve-person dinner on myself and the partner-in-crime ungraciously told me I didn't buy enough food to feed twelve people. I have no way to know and now have nightmares of hungry family members glaring at me balefully.

6) When people ask what I want for Christmas my head says, "Ask for cash or socks or something practical" but my heart says, "Ponies! Dolls! Toys!"

7) Frank Sinatra came on while I was writing this post and I went to Pandora to thumbs down the song without realizing it was him. True story.

8) I don't feel compelled to get to 10 on this post.

9) I love the concept of fantasy and read a lot of it as a child, but I find most of it overwritten with a lot of confusing names and traditions that seem forced and unnecessary.

10) Damn.

This is probably the last time we'll chat before my dinner failure Christmas, so happy holidays everybody!

Oh, I am with you on the Sinatra vs. Bing thing. (dude, love the drummer boy version with Bowie SO MUCH).
That said, I heard Bing was an evil a-hole. But, still.

Also, I live in NJ right now, among the many who worship Frank (yuck) and...(people will read this and hate me forever, I will lose followers...*sigh*)...Bruce Springsteen. It's not that I don't appreciate the Boss's lyrics, I just can't stand to hear him drone on. Also, Bon Jovi is very big here, but I can deal with them, in small doses. (he aint bad to look at, even now.)

Go buy more food. Better to have too much than not enough.

I agree with you on fantasy. The names. Why?

Merry Christmas! *hugs*
And here's to a spectacular 2011!
