Merry Xmas!!

[Ralphie is seeing Santa, only he can't remember what he wanted]
Santa Claus: How about a nice football?
Ralphie as Adult: Football? Football? What's a football? With unconscious will my voice squeaked out 'football'.
Santa Claus: Okay, get him out of here.
Ralphie as Adult: A football? Oh no, what was I doing? Wake up, Stupid! Wake up!
Ralphie: [Is shoved down the slide, but he stops himself and climbs back up] No! No! I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!
Santa Claus: You'll shoot your eye out, kid.

[Mr. Parker reads a side of the box with the prize that he won]
Mr. Parker: Fra-gee-lay. That must be Italian.
Mrs. Parker: Uh, I think that says FRAGILE, dear.
Mr. Parker: Oh, yeah.

[overdressed for winter]
Randy: I can't put my arms down!
Mother: Well... put your arms down when you get to school.

Flick: Are you kidding? Stick my tongue to that stupid pole? That's dumb!
Schwartz: That's 'cause you know it'll stick!
Flick: You're full of it!
Schwartz: Oh yeah?
Flick: Yeah!
Schwartz: Well I double-DOG-dare ya!
Narrator: NOW it was serious. A double-dog-dare. What else was there but a "triple dare ya"? And then, the coup de grace of all dares, the sinister triple-dog-dare.
Schwartz: I TRIPLE-dog-dare ya!
Narrator: Schwartz created a slight breach of etiquette by skipping the triple dare and going right for the throat!

* * *

Goggles: I like Santa.
Ralphie: Yeah.
Narrator: Let's face it, most of us are scoffers. But moments before zero hour, it did not pay to take chances.

'Twas the Night Before Christmas (1974) (TV)

I was lucky enough to catch my all-time favorite Xmas classic on ABC Family yesterday afternoon. It just doesn't get better than precocious singing mice who at first don't believe in Santa but then try to believe in him so they can fix the town clock and sing a glorious song to enchant Santa and get him to deliver toys to all the kids in town.

Christmas time is calling...Santa SANTA!!

XXXmas Party Time

So it was Xmas Party time at the Hatos Center once again (and possibly for the last time for me)...that of course means the $15 gift exchange. The talk of the party was my boss and his acceptance of the X-rated gift...this year it was some pasties (the anti-chaffing the nip kind). After his rather extravagent display of the pasties on the OUTside of his shirt, a few of us semi-drunk grad students decided to spread the love of the Xmas party into our neighborhood "quad". The great haters of free speech that we are we decided to censor the naked statue man that for some reason adorns our lovely grassy quad. May his nips be nice and warm for the CA winter. Then we crashed the Neurology Departments Xmas party...we crazy like that!

UPDATE: So far, nobody has dared censored our censorship!

UPDATE II: Still there as of this morning...made it through the first weekend! That's huge! My goal now is to get the statue pasties to stick around through the New Year!!

UPDATE III: Still there as of Xmas Day! Okay, maybe I didn't go to work on Xmas day but neither did anyone who would remove said pasties. So since they were there on Thursday...I'm gonna make the assumption that they are still there. Merry Xmas Mr. Statue! Merry Xmas Pasties!

Tuesday's Hot Weather Girl: Jackie Johnson

Yowsers! Been meaning to blog about this one for awhile. She's WAY hotter than Carl Bell was (who incidently attended Hoover High School according to my 12th grade spanish teacher...Mrs. Something-or-other). Jackie fits in perfectly with my old fav's Jewel, Renee Zellwegger and Joey Lauren Adams. I still don't know why my fav's are blonde's since I'm not known for dating blondes. Odd.

Jackie Johnson joined KCAL 9 and sister station CBS 2 in October 2004. She serves as KCAL 9’s weathercaster on the station’s weeknight 8, 9 and 10 p.m. newscasts. In addition, she is involved in a variety of special projects for both KCAL 9 and CBS 2.Johnson previously was a weathercaster and reporter for WSVN-TV in Miami since September 2001. Prior to that, she worked as a reporter and weekend weather anchor for WCTV-TV in Tallahassee, Florida. A native of Plymouth, Michigan, Johnson attended the University of Southern Alabama, concentrating on meteorology, and then went on to Middle Tennessee State University to get her degree in broadcast journalism. (Jackie's Bio from KCAL)

(By the way, in looking for some pics of Jackie, I discovered I'm not the only blogger out there who loves getting their weather from JJ...some bloggers in Miami are sad to have lost her)
