Christmas Party Musings

As a new blogger, this is my first go round at fitting this blogging thing into the holiday season.  I admit I have not been doing a great job.  Your patience with me is soooo appreciated. 

With that said, I will treat you to some pointers I picked up from a little shindig that I attended this past Saturday night. 

1)  It's never a good sign when the laughing Santa face on the door sounds mysteriously like Freddy Kruger...

2)  Your 10 year old belting out Christmas carols is entertainment enough.  She's not required to circulate the entire party for the 15 minutes between performances loudly announcing when her next 'show' is going to start. 

3)  Low fat, no taste food resembling cardboard will NOT get eaten, especially when little old ladies keep bringing the good stuff.
4)  If you're gonna' make us play games, there had better be prizes involved.

5)  Having Asian friends and then spouting 'Oh good, our Asian friends are here' doesn't make you politically correct in any way, shape or form.

6)  Any guest who feels the urge to breastfeed her child, WAY TOO NEARLY COMPLETELY TOPLESS, parked right in the center of the room, next to the lovely bedazzled and festooned Christmas tree should probably bedazzle and festoon herself as well.  That way, people wouldn't be as apt to keep making those funny u-turns right back out of the room.

The party goers, including us, had a great time in spite of the weirdness.  The holiday season honestly is somehow magical and there's nothing better than a true, good, hearty laugh.  Myself, I hadn't laughed that hard in a really long time. 


  1. Okay. Not gonna lie, my 10 year old is exactly like that. Although, I would have dragged him to the back of the house and told him to stop being obnoxious (nicely of course, I'm not Joan Crawford for crying out loud).

    Remind me one of these days to tell you about my Asian friend. We are awful to her. And totally not politically correct. I'm not sure why she's friends with us.

  2. I wonder what the party theme would be?

  3. @ JJ-
    I bet you could come up with a real humdinger of a theme out of this hot mess...

  4. Christmas food is supposed to be fattening and yummy! But breastmilk is not considered Christmas food.

  5. 'Yellow Rose' Jasmine: I will save you a seat on the Mother Ship when I return to my home planet. I remember Earth, and I know this isn't it.

  6. Wierdness usually makes for fun!
    It does sound like you had a good time!
    And a few tips I'll have to remember!

    Hope you have a Merry Christmas.
