The Queen's Meme #18 ~ The Most Annoying Christmas Meme Ever

1. What is the most annoying Christmas song?

I don't even have to look that up. Brenda Lee. Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree.

What is a Christmas Jolly Hop? Does anybody know?!
That song is like nails on a chalkboard to me.
I turn it OFF. And.Quickly.

She's just a wee bit too happy.
2. Name one annoying thing that happens to you each time you get together with your family during the holidays.
They sometimes forget to bow in my presence. Last year they didn't even curtsy.
I'm so annoyed.

3. What is eggnog? Think about it. Does anybody really know?

Nog is apparently made from something in the in "nod". Of course, it's only mildly palatable if laced with liquor.

Eggs are just...well..eggs.
Add Chardonnay to any ordinary omelet, stir gently and with aplomb. You have yourself a stellar (and happy) breakfast.

4. Don't take this personally but there are lots of fruitcakes walking around.
Have you encountered any real live nuts lately?Yes.

5. Why were the nine Lords a'leaping in those annoying tights???!

They sat on the partridge in a pear tree. The branch had briers.
I thought everyone knew THAT.

(Actually, there were originally TEN Lords a'leapin as the song goes. One died from brier cuts which is just as well because it gave the 9 ladies dancing partners.That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)

6. What is the most annoying Christmas gift you've ever received?

A singing fish. I kid you not. It looked just like the picture at the top of the page. Just because I have a music degree does not mean that all things amphibian should render Jingle Bells. And his scales were horrible!

What did you do with it??

I taught it to sing in Braille. It's much quieter now.

7. Let's admit it: Christmas, with all its splendor and goodwill, can also be a pain in the royal patootie. How do you plan to circumvent annoyances this year and enjoy the season?

Luckily, my forte is circumventing annoyances. I am enough royal pain in the behind for everybody. How am I supposed to ignore mySELF?

Hey! You! Hey you! Is anybody there?? I'm sayin' something here ya know. Helloooooo.....?
Very funny, folks. That's it. You're all going to the dungeon. I don't care if it's Christmas!!

P.S. I think I should let Jean-Luc and Mouse out of the dungeon for the Holidays. They're beginning to smell.
And besides, I'm feeling all Brenda Lee-eee.

If you keep me in there any longer I am going to start singing all the Brenda Lee songs I know.
And maybe some Connie Francis, too.
AND, I will put my crinoline cat on Homer's collar so he always has company...
thats not the way out?
oh, darn.... :)

Xmichra said...

lol... i like your story on the leaping lords too :)

Merry Christmas Mim, may your holidays be bright (and well far away from christmas jolly hops!)

How can I do a meme by someone who does not like Brenda Lee?

I am so sad..

coopernicus said...

I forgot all aboutthe singing bass..and with good reason.

wasn't brenda lee the once that went off her cracker late in life?? maybe it was all that happiness...

Mimi Lenox said...

Mie - NOOOOO....not the crinoline cat. Homer would like it but I would not. What? You mean you haven't found the secret tunnel out yet?

Tsk tsk tsk....

Mimi Lenox said...

Xmichra - Those leaping lords wear me out just lookin' at 'em leap. I wish their batteries would run down. My but I'm a scrooge this morning.....

Happy Holidays to you as well.

Mimi Lenox said...

Vinny - But I like Flo and Eddie. Doesn't that trump Brenda Lee?

Mimi Lenox said...

Coopernicus - I didn't know she went "off her cracker"...nor have I ever heard that expression. Are you from around these parts?

I agree. Too much happiness cannot be a good thing.

The Gal Herself said...

Love the way your erstwhile fish makes serious eye contact as he sings. How oculd part with him?

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Out for the Holidays? I might not want to go back in!

Is Brenda Lee the martial art expert in 'Enter The Dragon'?

Mojo said...

"His scales were horrible"... hah! Good one.

There's something much more annoying than Brenda Lee about the season though. Okay, maybe much more is overstating it. That song is pretty heinous after all. But this is close.

I have a suggestion for part of the circumvention... ing. Thing. It doesn't apply to everyone, (yes, there are those maladjusts that have their shopping and other preparations done before the jack-o-lantern goes out) but I suspect most of us can relate to Procrastination-Induced Stress Syndrome. I have put together some tips on how to avoid it .
