It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

This morning while I was catching up on my train sleep (because God forbid I sleep as soundly in bed as I do on an uncomfortable molded seat), Ella Fitzgerald broke on through to the other side of my iPod singing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

She’s a little late (yes, I meant that) so it may have just been her way of telling me that winter has finally arrived. I got eyes woman! A little snow, some freezing rain, Jack Frost nipping at your nuts, yep, it’s winter.

Innnn Dale's ears


That Jack Frost, what a freak. Who knew?

Tanya Espanya said...

Haha suckah, going in to work. I decided to take a day off and stay home.

I didn't want to wade through the half pinch of ice chips and have to drive Row-bear into work, so I made him stay home with me. Yeah, who has more power now, baby?!

(actually, as we all know, Mr. R is his own person and never listens to me and is only home because of his broken back).

God, you are so funny!

Chris said...

We are once again white here, too. My nuts were sufficiently nipped this morning (by Mr. Frost, I mean).

PinkFluffySlippers said...

Yup, it's finally winter here in Southern California too. Time to start wearing socks.

Dale, u told me I was the only one who could ermmmm nip at your nuts.....

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Boy, do I ever miss freezing rain. snicker.

Oh yeah, and humidexes of +48C.

Okay I'm done being an asshole now.

Mob said...

Damned comfy beds not allowing enough sleep!

Forced to seek solace in the seat of a stange train, you poor guy.

mellowlee said...

Oh suckie, you guys finally got winter. We are supposed to get more snow tonight and tomorrow! Im so confusedid!

Dale said...

You're a songwriter too WP! Jack be nimble that's all I ask.

For anyone who may not know or may be confused, Tanya does not work. Taking a day off may actually mean going to work.

God is funny Old Lady, I agree!

After the nipping comes the white stuff Chris. Snow, I mean snow.

I hope you're not going to wear socks AND slippers PFS, you showoff you!

When you're here, it's you and only you Monkey.

Barbara, why do I feel you've only just begun? Use your assholiness for good, that's all I ask.

Isn't it ridiculous Mob? I'm thinking of having a train seat installed in my bedroom.

Mel, it's yucky here but considering we've had your usual winter weather to this point, I'm only complaining a little.

Allison said...

Nothing says good morning like being barricaded into your apt by snow removal trucks only to step out onto your ass because of a sheet of black ice. Ah, winter.

Angela said...

If Jack Frost was nipping as your nuts, does that mean you and he are picking out curtains together now?
Way to go, Dale!

Dale said...

I hate it, I'm stupid, I continue to live here, my own fault. Can you tell I love this season probably as much as you Allison?

It's more of a casual thing we've got going Angela. I was going to try and be clever with nip and tuck but it all got complicated fast.

Holly said...

Um, just have to ask: whatever possessed you to put a recording of anyone (even the great Ella) doing a version of "Rudolph" on your ipod?

Dale said...

I'd only let Ella get away with that for sure Holly. It's not one of my favourites. I loaded up a bunch of Christmas hoohah and now it's all been dispatched.
