I Wish You a JD Christmas

Christmas time is here
Something . . . something CHEER!

x-mas card

Wow! It’s time for . . .

10 Mysterious Christmas Facts about JD!

  1. I once “ruined Christmas” by finding an unwrapped Crissy doll in my mom’s closet. Crissy dolls had hair that you could make longer by pulling it out through a hole in the skull. I pulled a little too hard.
  2. I don’t like A Christmas Story.
  3. I don’t like Crissy dolls.
  4. Although I can’t remember the year I learned there was no Santa Claus or even how I felt about it, I do recall with frightening clarity the exact moment I discovered that the Partridge Family didn’t all do their own singing. Devastating. “I MUST sleep over at Marcia’s!” I dramatically proclaimed to my mom.
  5. My favorite gifts are cash and, apparently, foreign cake:

j with cake

Is that only 5? Well, look, y’all, this is my busy season. I’ve been donning the halls, walking in a winter wonderland, asking people, “Do you hear what I hear? (the voices . . . THE VOICES!), going to a birthday party at the home of Farmer Gray (it really was the perfect ending to a perfect day), eating figgy pudding (thanks, HEATHER!), checking my list . . . oh, wait, that’s Santa.

My point is, this is no time to be ungrateful. Lookit all I’ve done for you over the years!

Since July 2007, your JD gave to you:

12 strips of bacon

11 lawsuits pending

10 eargasms

9 rock star bulges

8 meaty prime ribs

7 hairy inches (EW!)

6 cookies baking

5 VI-CO-DINS! (X 5,000)

4 cat puke hash browns

3 Bumpits bumping

2 sardines stinking

And a JD on a nude beach!!!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

    Your carol is MUCH better than the actual “12 Days of Christmas,” which kind of makes me want to shoot myself if I have to listen to the whole thing.

    Sorry about your bad Crissy doll experience. I had a Baby Crissy doll and she was one of my faves, even though I broke the hair-growing apparatus pretty quickly.

    Merry Christmas!

    From now on anytime I hear the real 12 days of Christmas I’m singing “5 VIC-O-DINS!” instead of the stupid rings or whatever it is.

    Merry Christmas, thanks for all that you do for us!

    I had a fake Barbie. What was her name? Midge? And I took her over to my best friend Patty’s house and found that she had gotten the Genuine barbie AND every single Barbie accessory ever made, including Ken and all the Barbie shoes and Barbie clothes. She even had the car and the house and the clothes had their own closet.

    Umm… what was I going to say? I forgot.

    Have a brilliant Christmas, JD! Hope your stocking is filled with foreign cake (actually that sounds really odd, and there’s probably a joke in there somewhere even though that isn’t even what I meant, I am partial to Japanese cakes so I understand entirely and…oh never mind, I’m way too tired and there is pastry dough all over the kitchen, good thing the cats dislike anything but tuna…)

    Anyway, have a wonderful holiday!

    I think you are secretly jealous of Chrissy’s hair and her ability to grow it so fast. I didn’t have Chrissy, but I had her “cousin” Velvet and some other one called Cinnamon. Gees, I LOVED that doll. I can remember really, really wanted Velvet for Christmas.

    Merry Christmas, JD!

  13. 13 JD

    absepa: I always hated “Twelve Days of Christmas,” so I don’t really know why I chose it for today’s post idea. I don’t think those Crissy dolls were very sturdy. It’s not like I TRIED to break it, MOM! Happy Holidays!

    Susan: “5 gold rings.” Who needs 5? Now 5 Vicodins, YES. That makes so much more sense. Happy Holidays, and you’re very welcome!

    Daisy the Curly Cat: Same to you, Daisy!

    Barb – WillThink4Wine: Oh, I had a Midge, too! And a friend who had all the Barbie accessories ever made. I was pretty jealous. Merry Christmas Eve to you!

    Grace: Merry Christmas to you, Grace!

    Lidian: Pastry dough, you say? Mmmm. Are you making a foreign cake, by any chance? Happy Holidays!

    dcr: I know. I didn’t want to do it, especially since I am getting the grossest Google searches because of it. Oh, well. Merry Christmas to you!

    Comedy Plus: Thank you! Same to you!

    dcr: NO! Now you’re really scaring me! What do you know that I don’t? peers nervously out window

    Tiggy: Thanks, Tiggy! Same to you . . . ?

    CatLadyLarew: OK, you’d better get out and get some fresh air. After that: have a very Merry Christmas!

    Lin: I think I had Velvet too. She was the blonde one, right? Yes, I was jealous. Their hair was so shiny. And so easy to break. Merry Christmas!

    As you are aware, I was Barbie-less in my household. I had to go whore myself over at a friend’s, who had a gaggle of Barbies, Kens, the apartment with an elevator, cruise liner, car and every possible accessory ever made. At least you got Crissy, whoever that was.

    Thank you for making me laugh all year! Yours is the blog that keeps on giving.

    Merry Christmas to you and Dave and of course, Gus and Prudence. May your cookie plate always be full and your egg nog glass runneth over.

  18. 18 Lola

    My sister had a Crissy doll. the first thing she did was pull all the hair out and cut it short! Lol! Yeah, no more turning that dial (on her back?) and making the hair go short.

    Hope you’re have a great holiday.

    Maddux and Irish seem to have resolved to settle down a bit today. (Or perhaps they ran themselves ragged earlier and are taking a break? Yeah, that’s probably it.)

  27. 27 Katherine

    You just have way too much holiday cheer these days. Is that what death threats do to a gal??

    I know how you feel about Crissy. I had a Baby Alive…who didn’t live up to her name for long. I apparently fed her something that didn’t come in one of those little packets – and it clogged up the works. (As I get older, I can empathize with this.) It wasn’t my fault. My mom hid her and only allowed me to play with her on like these super-special-occasions-that-had-no-meaning-to-anyone-other-than-her-but-could-change-at-any-moment (which, to the rest of us probably meant she was ready to have a few and needed something to entertain the brats)…so when I found her, precariously perched in the ‘rents closet, it wasn’t my fault I only had like 3.5 seconds to do something with her before being busted. I don’t know what I fed her…apparently it was glue mixed with concrete. Thirty years later, I’m still convinced Baby Alive sucks.

    But you don’t! I love you…and I hope you have the best Christmas ever. And if you’re really able to be bought off with $5, then we so gotta talk. xx

    Puglette: Oooh, FM! I don’t remember what else I did upon discovering the news that changed my life. My mom wouldn’t let me sleep over at Marcia’s, so I guess I just cried in my room.

    That’s so sweet of Ollie to offer to shed! But I think he should keep every precious fur on his body. It’s cold!

    Please explain to us how to don a hall, because I’ve attempted it and gotten dirty looks.
    I wish we’d known each other as kids because we could have organized a doll swap: you could have given me Chrissy the Bald Spot in exchange for Velveeta, her little cousin.
    And I don’t get “A Christmas Story”, either. I cannot understand how they can have the same movie running all day on a television network.

  41. 41 Jen

    I had a Chrissy doll. It was my favorite for a long time until Malibu Barbie hit the scene and then she was discarded like all my other dolls, Raggedy Anne, Baby Alive (who wasn’t really alive but who just peed all over everything). Chrissy, at least the one I had, had long red hair and wore an orange dress. A mini dress if memory serves. I always thought her dress was the wrong color since I had been told since I was a child that redheads could not wear red or orange. She looked fine, no clashing (whatever that means) but I could never bring myself to be the fashion rebel that she was.

    Hope you had a great Christmas and have a Happy New Year.

    Kathryn: Happy Holidays and a Stupendous New Year to YOU! Ahhh . . . Thai porn. I’m hoping 2010 brings more. More everything. Yes to the album. With your voice and my lyrics, there’s no stopping us. Until we’re BOTH committed. But it will be worth it.

    David: Sorry. But it’s part of who I am. I have to acknowledge the good, the bad, and the pukey.

    MomZombie: Yay! I’m not alone. Donning the hall is way more involved than you might think. But it does not involve anything illegal. Heh: Velveeta. I think I had both. I can’t believe my mom would’ve gotten me a second doll after I ruined Xmas by breaking Crissy, but there you go. Happy New Year!

    Jenn of Many Cabbages: You too! You and ol’ King Slaw and all your many cabbages. I’m SO relieved it’s over. Now we can just play with our toys, swear at the ones that don’t work, and return the ones we don’t like.

    Jen: I remember Crissy’s dress as being light blue, with a ruffle down the middle. But I have a terrible memory. It was definitely a mini dress, tho. I didn’t have a Baby Alive, but I had a Betsy Wetsy, who peed all over everything BUT that was her job. Happy New Year!

    meleah rebeccah: I know you’d never hate me (for anything so silly). I know I’m the only one. Well, me and MomZombie (see above). Happy New Year!
