December 24 12

So, on the eve of the 34th Chrismukah, I am here making pretty grown-up decisions. Hmmm, let’s go to the YMCA and have a good workout instead of sleeping in. Hmmmm, let’s not take our chances on any of the desserts that may or may not be nut-free.

(Nothing says Merry Christmas like a Pulp Fiction-like epipen injection.)

Hmmm, let’s cut blunt bangs for the first time since 1993. Hmmm, let’s take my brother up on the offer to try egg nog for the very first time in what will go down in history as the Great Egg Nog Challenge of ’12.¬†

BEFORE, the excitement is palpable:

DURING, chug-a-lug, chug-a-lug:

AFTER,”Mama, do not make me drink strange spicy drinks ever again. That was a really mean trick.”

Survey says: It kind of tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass, which isn’t the typical way to eat pumpkin pie. It was kind of weird. I’d probably like it better in milkshake form. Or mixed with Irish Whiskey.

Of which I will need copious amounts of..

…for when I cut the bangs.

Happy, merry everything to all of you! Good tidings, friends.

Hope you are spending lots of good snuggle time with your loved ones and watching lots of Elf, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, and Love, Actually¬†in your very best flannel reindeer pajamas whilst stuffing your face with pie and, well, stuffing, and playing Ticket to Ride and Settlers of Catan,

Because that’s exactly what I’m doing.

  1. Egg nog is so grooooooooss. I loved it as a kid, but now I can’t stand the stuff. Which isn’t to say that I won’t have an egg nog latte once in a while because it doesn’t have a RAW EGG in it.

  2. We got the kids Ticket to Ride for Christmas this year because yours seem to love it so much. Can’t wait to play!

  3. I can’t try egg nog. I’m sure I wouldn’t hate it, but the name! GAH!

    Excellent face, Joshie!
