Waiting for that ice to melt!

Ok, so when I walk outside, it's all ice because we had like one warm day a few days ago and a bunch of the snow melted but didn't have anywhere to go, so when it got super cold like it is now, it all turned to ice. So when I walk, I slip like Bambi and it's hard to lift my leg to pee so I've been squatting and I pee all over my front leg which my mom isn't too crazy about. Does anyone else have such bad weather that they urinate on themselves - sheesh, I can't wait to move!

And here are some pictures from Christmas:
This is a picture of me in my crown from a Christmas cracker.

And this is a picture of me wearing my new shades, bandanna and flight jacket that my friend Tom bought me. Thanks Tom!

And this is a really embarassing pic that my dad took of me falling asleep during a nail trim and my mom insisted on showing it because she wants everyone to see how good I am for nail trimmies. Whatever.

Merry Christmas to All!

So this morning I woke up and Santa filled my stocking with treats! I thought I would be getting a new sweater or jacket, but my mom said I have too many, which is pretty awesome because I'm tired of getting new sweaters and I prefer treats!
I hope everyone is having a great Christmas!

What is in this fine-smelling stocking?

This is a picture of me eating a beef stick that was in my stocking and I love it so much, I'm smiling like Joe Stains!

Mommy Meme.

So, I was just catching up on the ol' blogs and I ran across Ruby's which had a really awesome meme where she interviewed her mom, and I realized that my mom doesn't get a lot of blog time, so in the spirit of the season (you know, being generous and all) I am going to let my mom do this meme about her. Please try not to fall asleep because that might hurt her feelings.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper - unless it's a really awkward shape or something or I am super lazy.

2. Real tree or Artificial? Real - I love the way they smell.

3. When do you put up the tree? Usually really late, but this year there will be no tree due to new furniture and no room.

4. Wreath on your door? Nope - just a cheesy brass doorknocker.

5. Do you like eggnog? If it's diluted with mild and doesn't have fake rum flavor. Organic Valley makes a killer nog.

6. Favourite Christmas gift received as a child? My Cabbage Patch Kid - his name was Kim Irving and he had no hair and one tooth. I saw it in my mom's trunk when we were loading the Christmas tree and I was so excited!

7. Easiest person to buy for? Ike's dad.

8. Least easiest? Ike's grandpa Dan. He hates everything.

9. Do you have a nativity scene? No, there's no Santa in them! That's sacrilege! (Just kidding - we're not particulary religious.)

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Both.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? When I was a teenager, I wanted a ski jacket, and my parents bought me an ankle length puffy coat with a hood (it was the 80s.)

12. Favourite Christmas Movie? A Christmas Story.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Early December.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Maybe ...

15. Open presents on Christmas eve or morning? I get to open one on Christmas Eve - the rest usually don't get opened until Christmas evening (no young kids around.)

16. Lights on the tree? Old style candle lights that flicker.

17. Favourite Christmas song? Santa Baby (the old one) and The Christmas Song

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? To my parent's house about 20 minutes away.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Of course!

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Neither - one of those pointy things.

21. Favourite thing to eat at Christmas? Prime rib and Yorkshire pudding!

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Beach Boys Christmas songs.

23. Favourite Tree ornament, theme or colour? Old European glass.

24. Favourite for Christmas dinner? Prime rib!

25. Brussels Sprouts - love or hate them? They're great done right and awful done wrong.

26. Favourite accompaniment to the Christmas Pud? Custard!

27. Favourite Christmas Carol? Silent Night.

28. Your very Favourite Christmas Thing? When people are surprized and happy!

29. A Christmas wish! To sell our condo next year and move to Washington! And world peace.

30. Tag a Seasonal Six – Martha's mom, Joe Stain's mom, Mango's mom, Darcy, Tito's mom and Suki and Mojo's mom.

And this is a picture of Odin doing his Christmas lights impression. Whatever.

Holiday card.

Ok, so you remember how my mom is super lazy and forgot to get me on the DWB card exchange, well, I want to send out some super awesome cards, and I don't have addresses. Maybe someone could email me a copy of their card list or email me your addresses so I can send you a card?
emilyandian at gmail dot com.
Thanks dudes and dudettes!
And this is me singing ... fa la la la la la la la la.

Hey everyone! I just got a comment from a Boston named Tito, and I went to his blog and it had 0 comments! WTF? So everyone, give Tito a warm welcome to DWBs even though he's been posting for almost a year, and I can't believe this one slipped through the cracks!
Here's an awesome pic of Tito I stole from his blog.

And here's an awesome pic of me and Odin because everyone thinks these are so cute.

And guess what? My mom finished the Christmas card! It will be unveiled soon!

What has the woman been doing with her time?

Ok, so my mom forgot to get me on the DWB Christmas card list, and then I got a card from Randi anyway (thanks Randi!), but that lazy woman hasn't even started designing my X-mas card yet even though she has formulated an idea in her feeble, forgetful brain. Seriously, what is she waiting for?
She's also been terrible about helping me visit blogs too, and this has been going on for months. This is just wrong.
Here's a picture of me making sad face, begging my mom to do something already!
