Christmas was wonderful beyond my dreams. Christmas Eve I stayed up until 2:00 a.m.,
ransacking the house in search of my secret booze stash, after knocking off the last legitmate bottle of wine.
to make sure the next morning was nothing less than perfect.
Christmas morning, Cakers was up at the crack of
dawn to open her gifts. Then, while Cakers played with her new toys, I cleaned up the wrapping paper mess and prepared
a plan to get myself legally adopted by the lady down the block
for mid-morning brunch with the in-laws. No sooner had I finished with all that, when College Boy came over from his father's house, to open his presents.
When my son was done opening his gifts, I was struck by a sudden sense of sadness at not having
run away with that rogue band of eunoch bikini waxers, back in college.
had a few more kids, with a few more different men, so the gaiety of this morning could have been extended.
After a third round of gift exchange, this time with my in-laws,
punch was spiked
brunch was served. After the table was cleared,we had a surpise guest: Child phenom Caker Monshaker.
My inlaws left at 2:00, which gave me just a couple of hours to
hunt down my former therapist to ask him to: 1) drop the restraining order and 2) Get me a 48 hour inpatient placement, where I would be expected to do nothing but enjoy a medication-induced euphoria and whoozily receive my guilt-ridden visitors.
prepare for a round of
toxic relational debauchery
reciprocal love and joy with my mother, siblings and nieces and nephews, at a party being held later in the evening.
That party went pretty well
except for the part where my niece shot my nephew in the neck with a pellet gun and my former SWAT instructor brother had to take her down, to disarm her and then my mom cried.
, but the highlight of the evening was the presentation of my
Tammy Faye Snuff film
And even though most of the little snowman noses fell
like panties off a Spears'ass
off in transit to the party, my family members were so thrilled with these little fellas that they fought over who would
get to implode theirs next in the microwave
get first pick.
In fact, by then end of the night there were only two left
and I found them in the back room, toasted and nestled between two graham crackers, with a chunk of a Nestle's bar.
I spent the next day
sniffing cleaning supplies and sucking the scalp of Cakers'new wig.
cleaning, and the day after that I cleaned up after the cleaning up.
And today, we're at the cottage.
Halya Fucking Loo Ya.
I'm so excited to be here that I don't give a whit about the anticipated 6-10 inches of snow expected between 4 and 11 p.m. today.
Early in the snow shower, the flakes were huge and I wanted to take a picture of one. I received a photography book for Christmas, but it doesn't have anything in it about photographing snowflakes, so I winged it. Here's to Getting Hosed on New Years
I bet you thought I forgot.
But I didn't.
I'm finished with the leg part. Next, I have to do that stuff that makes sox more than just messing around with a 7 inch tube of glorious substance.
Soxual Heeling, Baybee.
