12 days of Christmas - Day 5: My Christmas List

Its that time of year again.  A time to make your list and check it twice because some fat man in a little suit is going to find out who is naughty or nice.  If you were like me, this was also the time to request anything and everything you have always wanted EVER.  Of course you knew that Santa would never give you 732 gifts even if you were the best kid on the block but you still hoped for the best.  My thinking was if i asked for everything and anything then i wouldn't get disappointed if Santa was on a tight budget that year.

Because there was no internet and your parents, i mean Santa, did not know anything at all about what toys were in or cool this year, they gave my brother and I the Sears catalog (remember the HUGE catalog books..haha).  We were to circle the gifts we wanted which meant you circled EVERYTHING! Most of the time the catalogue did not contain the cool toys you saw on the commercials of your favorite cartoons but you knew that Santa knew EVERYTHING and that if you wrote it down on your list he would get it for you.  He did not.  But you still hoped for next year! This year I received the greatest gift of all; my daughter Ava.  My life is complete and I'm content...somewhat. Of course there are still some things that are on my christmas list.
My Annual Christmas List:

  • NY Giants Superbowl win - I mean it can happen again right?  Can't be too promising that i am writing this list while watching them get POUNCED ON by Atlanta  :-(
  • Justin Bieber to realize that his voice has changed and he sounds terrible and he should stop singing.  ASAP
  • Yo Gabba Gabba to be removed from the airwaves as it teaches our children that LSD is AWESOME!
  • Immature thoughts removed of where to stick Frosty's nose
  • Jet packs that we were promised 50 years ago
  • the dog that i asked for when i was 5 and continued until my ripe age of 34
  • Kanye West's dress
  • A Red Ryder bb gun so i can shoot the people who post that they want this for Christmas on Facebook
  • One Direction to go in the right direction of breaking up..NOW
  • for my daughter to stop eating EVERYTHING..especially the tv remote controls
  • the Book of Bart to be written and studied for years to come
  • NJ Italians to pronounce things like calamari and manicotti correctly
  • If possible, I'd like Nikki Minaj to return the costumes and makeup and come back to planet Earth
  • Aaron Rogers to remove his creepy moustache
  • Bring back steroids in Major League Baseball.  It made the sport sooo much more exciting.. zzzzz
  • for people to stop getting me confused with Ryan Gosling.  It was cute at first but now its just annoying
  • Lindsay Lohan to get it over with already and do all us taxpayers a favor
  • my wife to stop being sooooooo dam awesome and just be so dam awesome
  • for my daughter to NOT cry just as i sit down and pick up my fork to eat
  • to have a reality show called The Bart's
I hope Santa is good to me this year!

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 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.  

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:
