bandwagon meme'ing ...

I've seen a couple of memes traveling around Bloggerville and, since World of Warcraft's servers are down for the next 12 hours, I thought I'd actually take some time to share my wonderful versions with you ... heh

• I like to dunk peanut butter sammiches into chicken noodle soup ... it's tasty. And my favorite sammich when I was a kid was peanut butter ... and yellow mustard.

• To make up for my physical deficiencies, as compared to others (i.e. huge and fat), I became a bit of an intellectual snob. OK, My Favorite Person would probably tell you that it's more than "a bit." I can't stand to be around people who are significantly less intelligent than I am, let alone those who are just plain stupid. I get haughty, smug, even a bit smarmy, not to mention patronizing and condescending. I've been working on it for a little while, but I still don't suffer fools well.

• I like to start Christmas shopping in July, August at the latest. I'm a bit behind this year, but not overly so.

• I'm both an anal-retentive and a slob. Deal with it.

• My fingernails and toenails are significantly smaller than most people's proportionally, from cuticle to tip. I don't know why, but my theory is that I'm at a higher evolutionary state. You see, there's no real use for fingernails and toenails, though it's nice to get a backscratch from some nice fingernails. Animals need talons and claws and the like, but we don't. Flimsy rationale? Perhaps. :P

• When I was in high school, I would eat a variety of live things for gas money -- bugs, geckos, etc. I'm not proud, but it's a part of me.

• "Adeste Fidelis," aka "O Come All Ye Faithful." In Chamorro, it's "Fanmato Manhengge."

• "Jingle Bell Rock." There's just something about "Giddy up jingle horse."

• "All I Want for Christmas Is You," the version sung in "Love Actually."

• "The Christmas Song." Hello! Jack Frost is nipping at your nose!

• "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." You better know why!

• BONUS: "Feliz Navidad," "Baby It's Cold Outside," "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear," "The First Noel," "Pretty Paper" ... and a ton of others. I LOVE Christmas music!

• Any "funny" version of "The Twelve Days of Christmas."

• Any Alvin and the Chipmunks version of any Christmas song.

• "Last Christmas" by Wham! Fuck I hate that song.

• "All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth." That whistling is irritating.

• "I'm Getting Nuttin' for Christmas."

I'm not much on funny Christmas songs, either. There is this one though that is called the 12 Pains of Christmas. One part says something about inviting the in-laws over and the lady says "She's a witch. I hater her." Love that part. It hits close to home.
The Christmas Song sang by Nat is my favorite.

I still haven't tried the peanut butter and chicken soup thing.. I'm scared..

I'm with you on most of those songs.. One of my very favorite "Christmas" songs is Wizards in Glass" by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.. I think it rocks..

Have a great Tuesday!

Heather said...

ummm... consider me one of those stupid people that you can snobbily snub..

that song would be "Wizards of Winter"....

Ewww on the peanut butter dunked. Soggy bread is no good. And eww on the peanut butter and mustard. Although I like french fries dipped in soft serve vanilla ice-cream. So I will shut up. You ate live geckos???? OMG! EWWW. I always say that if I went to Fear Factor, I would immediately lose if I was asked to eat anything that was alive.

The funny part for me was after hearing (once again) about your intellectual snobbery and then that you once ate bugs and geckos for gas money... perhaps it is just me, but I found that very funny. Not that there is anything wrong with it, I'm just saying. :)

Nobody, I mean nobody, tell Dzer I cheated on my IQ test. He never has to know.

JMai said...

yay another vote for O Come All Ye Faithful. There's just something so moving and lovely about that song.

Chicken noodle soup with a PB on the side? Ew. Not sure which is worse, that or the geckos.
