What do you want for Christmas?

Posted - December 14, 2019

    I want all the Christmas music to go away in the stores. I want all of the Salvation Army bell ringers to go away. I want all of the Christmas advertisements on TV to disappear. I want Santa's reindeer to appear as a roast on my table. This post was edited by Element 99 at December 14, 2019 10:09 AM MST

    I understand.  Fortunately, the radio station I listen to doesn't play 24/7 Christmas music - only one song every once in a while.  Most of my shopping is done on line, so the songs in the supermarket don't bother me.

    Maybe some good klezmer tunes.

    That would be great in the Walmart Supermarket. :)

    Absolutely nothing.

    This year will be a little unusual in the Ari and I have accepted invitations from different friends
    He'll be at a picnic by a waterfall (probably bone-dry in this drought) where his friends will be jamming with guitar, tabla, djembe, kora, ngoni, sax and flute.
    I'll be at Dede's place for lunch (each brings a dish). Each of us will bring a performance offering.
    I'll be performing Lantana...


    When I first saw you look at me, I had no doubt

    that you loved my tutu skirts, flaring, swirling out,

    my red, orange, yellow, my soft or flaming pinks,

    my long, arched stems, that step from side to side,

    wild hip twists in wind whistled kinks,

    as my loins astride your legs let the rhythms ride. 

    Strong, spicy musk was my invitation 

    to join in propagation.

    What a partner you turned out to be

    when, from South America, you first smuggled me.


    Oh, you could keep me tamed in cooler, temperate climes;

    you could prune me, hedge me, and plait me into vines.

    But I’m the hot lady — whom only frosts can kill.

    By my sweet black berries, my colonial will

    calls every Fairy-Wren

    to spread my seeds where ere she comes to sit

    and nurture them with sweetly fertile shit.


    So here in hotter, wetter climates, I am queen.

    Though I wear flamboyant flowers, seductive as Lambada,

    if you eat my leaves   you’ll get runny, poopy scours,

    and you’ll be puking sick for endless hours.

    I will taunt you — be your bane — for I have no enemies,

    no  real  foe  among your arsenal  of natural remedies.

    I am the fragrant honey pot, the femme fatale Lantana,

    the comely, fecund, weedy lady 

    who claims your forests shady.

    I will never rest ’til I have won.

    Wow...I don't know how to respond to that. It is genius. Stir me up, then try to kill me. Yikes.

    Well I want my 2 Grandkids parents to try and look like they believe me when I tell them that I did stick to the $50 per kid max and that I got it at a 991/2 percent off sale that's why it seems like so much for $50. Cheers and happy weekend!

    My deepest wish is that my husband, who had a second stroke  4 days ago and learns to walk again in a Rehab Clinic 40 miles away, will be home at Christmas and does some steps on his own.

    I hope we all set aside our Internet-fueled-and-enabled differences to wish your husband and you the best as he tries to recover. That's a tough situation to endure. Be well.
