Holiday Tidbits

C.J.’s Brother:            C.J. are you singing “Deck the Halls?”

C.J.:                              Yeah.

C.J.’s Brother:             Where did you learn that song?

C.J.:                              At Forever 21.

In school this week, C.J. was instructed to draw a snowman via connecting the dots and, then, color him like a “traditional” snowman.  Here’s C.J.’s idea of a “traditional” snowman.  C.J. has never seen snow firsthand; perhaps he really does believe it is purple.  I love the sassy snowman’s matching pink hat, scarf and gloves.  I wonder if they came as a set or if he had to painstakingly search for the three separately.  I just made a mental note to ask C.J. when he wakes up tomorrow.

There is a local radio station that plays only holiday music from Thanksgiving to New Year’s.  C.J. and his brother want to listen to it nonstop (which is okay with me, but it may drive their dad a little crazy, allegedly).  The song that C.J. loves the most?  The only song that consistently gets him moving and grooving?  Wham’s “Last Christmas.”  Cheers to you, George Michael!

This has always been one of my favorite Christmas decorations.  I put it out this year and my brother, Uncle Uncle, said in his jolliest voice: “Ho Ho Homo Santa!”  If this is Ho Ho Homo Santa, what would be a reasonable name for his reindeer?  It’s something I’ve been contemplating for days now.

    Late to reply, but I’m reading all your entries and had to chime in. The reindeer should be RuDaulph (a play on RuPaul). =)

  2. The Hook says:

    I love that snowman!

  3. TLH says:

    To me, the *really* spiffy part of the matched set is/are the buttons and eyes!

  4. “At Forever 21” is my favorite part. Love it! Love the blog. Best to you and the whole fam. Cheers. 🙂

    Obvs it is Prancer or Dancer or possibly Vixen if s/he is in drag.

  6. chris says:

    More! Don’t ever stop!

  7. Alistair says:

    Call it Spritzer.

  8. David says:

    Wait until CJ sees Heat Miser!! Where’d you get the sassy Santa??

  9. BTW, George Michael is very ill currently.

  10. Tommy says:

    Given how fashionably thin he is, this reindeer lives in West Hollywood and is named
    “TWEAKER the Sleepless Reindeer”. Hey gurrrrl, how do you think Santa gets all those toys delivered in one night????

  11. Reindeer says:

    Vixen could be his drag name.

  12. Karen B says:

    I think “Gayle”. Get it? Gay-le? Besides it has to be a female anyways as all the male reindeer lose their antlers in the fall and this one still has a set. Unless its a male and the antlers are “extensions”. ha. ha. Yes, definitely Gayle!

  13. mountland says:

    The fag-stag? As a play on the term fag-hag?

    (I don’t mean that to be offensive, I know how people relate to the f-a-g word is different especially in different parts of the world, so if to you that is a really deogatrory term that you feel uncomfortable with I apologise, its kind of a reclaimed word amoungst my social circle and ergo is less taboo.)

  14. Joy says:

    It must have been made with purple snowflakes! ( Marvin Gaye Xmas song)

  15. Steven says:

    I vote for Rudi the Anorexic Reindeer…

  16. fairyjerbear says:

    Santa has a gay reindeer – Prancer – would any straight deer “prance?”

  17. Denise says:

    That’s Prancer. No doubt…

  18. MirrorMan says:

    Really? It’s kind of obvious to me.
    It’s Rudolph, The Red Nosed RainQueer.

    What? Too Soon?

  19. ScarUponTheSky says:

    I’m for either Graaays “pizzazz” or going with Sparkles (Flashy would work too) the Reindeer.

  20. Kathryn says:


  21. Graaays says:

    piz·zazz or pi·zazz or piz·zaz
    n. Informal
    1. Dazzling style; flamboyance; flair.
    2. Vigorous spirit; energy or excitement.

    You should totally call the reindeer ‘Pizazz’. (:

  22. ButchDyke(is that redundant)? says:

    Rudolpho of course.

  23. Hannah says:

    I’ve always lived in minnesota, and consistently forget that there are people in the world who have never seen snow. I’ve been imagining all of your winter holiday posts with kids bundled up and bemittened and I just realized how silly that is.

  24. Charles Craft says:

    Name for the reindeer. “Fierce-zten”

  25. dardrian says:

    Love the blog, been reading for a few months.

    The reindeer’s name?
    Twinkle, obviously.
