You know it's X-Mas when folks start having parties

If we were having an X-Mas party the planning list might look something like this:

  • Arrange living room furniture for conversation groups
  • Set up chairs in office for a second conversation room
  • Throw piles of clean laundry into closet to hide from guests
  • Throw piles of dirty laundry into bags (into same closet, if room)
  • Put bills, unopened junk mail, catalogs into plastic bag (into same closet, if room)
  • Clean: fridge, bathroom, kitchen countertops
  • Bathroom: place hundreds of toiletries piled on vanity into plastic bag and hide in linen closet
  • Iron linens and wash wine and champagne glasses
  • Hide porn, lube, and sex aids (okay, that one's a joke, I swear, Dad)
  • Grocery shop (a separate list)
  • Emma's boxes
  • Replace tea light candles in holders (about 25 of them total)
  • Hang clean hanging clothes in either walk-in or narrow closet (if room after everything else in there).
  • Find new spot for bags of dirty clothes (maybe trunk of car?)
  • Fluff pillows on bed for guest to put coats

I won't bore you with the grocery list, but I can tell you, it wouldn't look like this one (from found.com):

All I want to know is: what the hell are nose pills, what kind of party is this, and why am I not invited?

Hope you all had a great Tuesday.

Message for Wednesday: smile at strangers. It will make you feel good.

I'm trying to figure out "lip stuff."

sounds more like Santa's meth lab to me.

Drain cleaner
Nose pills (sudafed)

Just sayin'

Your Poor Dad.

My parents gave up years ago trying to encourage me to behave. I guess they would just be thankful that I hid such things. People who snoop through drawers deserve to see the contents. Maybe you should put a couple of shrunken heads in there and some fake dog pooh too.

Emma's boxes?

Nose pills... sounds interesting and not a little disturbing. :-\

I can't believe it's almost Christmas. Mom was right when she said time only goes faster the older you get. :-)

Of course, I'm solely concerned with the blatant misspelling of ELF. It's about time for an Elven Uprising!

Going out to get some nose pills, heard their great!
