12 Days of Christmas Blogging - Day 6: Sh*tmas List

It's that time of year again.  A time where everyone seems happy as the year comes to an end and the holiday spirit takes over.  There is great music and tons of Christmas cheer.  Then there is also the ShitMas crap that you have to deal with during the holiday season.  Of course, I have created a list of crap that annoys me during Christmas.  I am sure that you can relate to at least one of these.



Salvation Army Bell Ringers  - All.  Day.  Long.   It doesn't stop.  It's like a chick flick - it just keeps going and going and going.



Reindeer dressed animals - Yuck.  This should be illegal in all states. It was cute a couple years ago but now its just annoying. Please save your poor animal from humiliation.  They may not understand the English language but they know when they look uncool and this is it.





Tinsel - Besides glitter, this is one of the most impossible things to brush off.  Somehow it gets everywhere.  I dont even have tinsel anywhere in my home but yet, sure enough, I will find a small strand of i-dont-know-what-it-is on my floor or clothes.


Eggnog - What is this shit anyway?  Tastes like something that was thrown up with added nutmeg and sugar.  Its god awful yet somehow associated with Christmas.  How does something like this happen?  I'm going to try to start a new tradition this year and mix extra heavy cream, crisco, ketchup and worchester sauce and see if it catches on.


Mall Parking - I actually dont mind going to the mall this time of year.  In fact, its the only time of the year i woud go to the mall.  The worst part is the parking.  One can immediately get low blood sugar and hypertension trying to find a spot.  And while you are looking there are fake santas ringing Christmas bells asking for change for Salvation Army all over the place.  By the time you get in the mall you are already miserable and exhausted.


LED Christmas lights - Let's face it people...they just dont look good!  They are brighter than others and an off white color that looks blue.  Who does that??!

Joe wanted to save money on his electric bill by using LED when replicating the Griswold house. FAILURE

Steven Singer, Jareds, Kays, Zales, etc - You get the point.  Any jeweler at this time of the year spends millions on advertising.  I can tell you this, i DO hate Steven Singer, I didn't go to Jared's, my kiss to my wife does NOT begin with Kays and I certainly didn't let love shine at the "diamond store" aka Zales.


The Lexus Commercials - The only thing this commercial does is make me hum the Home Alone song all day long.  If its not the Home Alone song they play then it sure does sound just like it.  First, lets face facts.  If my wife woke me up Christmas day and told me to look outside and there in the driveway was a brand new beautiful $65,000 Lexus, I would not smile at her but throw my coffee in her face and call my lawyer.

I would actually respect my wife more if she got me this!

Happy Holidays - Seriously.  It's Christmas.  Say Merry Christmas.


The Day After Drinkmas - Every year we goto the Franklin Steakhouse to celebrate the season with close friends and family and every year i wake up the next morning unable to walk as there is alcohol instead of blood in my veins.  If there was a day to hate then this would probably be it. DAM YOU DRINKMAS.  If you would like to take part in this wonderful celebration and experience the worst day ever the next day then join us at the Steakhouse on Franklin Ave in Nutley on Dec 23 @ 7.


Merry Chri.. i mean Happy Holidays!!!!!

My Justin Timberlake Experience .. and my shameful beer snob status

I have seen some great legends live in concert over the years.  Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, One Direction - to name a few.  But one in particular - Mr Justin Timberlake aka Justin Bart or JB as he goes by - was one for the ages. 

I got to enjoy this spectacular human with my beard wife Rose last night at the Prudential Center, in the city of dreams, Newark NJ.




The Perineal Massage..

My wife is approaching her 37th week of pregnancy.  Apparently, in your 37th week you are supposed to begin massaging your perineum.  "What's a perineum", you asked as so did i?  The perineum is basically the taint.  "Ahhhh.. ok.  I get it.  But massage it??", is what i asked.  Yes, massaging it helps with the pain when the baby crowns during childbirth.  "So just rub it or sumthin?" (in Chip Chipperson voice .. Opie and Anthony fans anyone??)  Not quite.. 
Here are the instructions on how to successfully massage your perineum:

The Christmas Glitter Bomb

Its that time of year again.  A time when people and family members that you haven't talked to, well, since last Christmas, reach out with open arms and send you their annual Christmas card.  We took part this year as we now have a newborn.  We both felt obliged to show off our little one to everyone on our wedding list and beyond.  It felt nice.  It's more of a hey-look-how-cute-our-kid-is behind a Merry Christmas message.  Regardless, our card was a simple photo that did NOT have a surprise waiting as you opened up the envelope. A surprise that jumps out at you and says "SURPRISEEEEEE!!!oh and merry christmas"  I'm talking about the glitter bomb.  You all know who you are.
