Let me preface this post: I have been drinking hot toddies tonight like they are going out of style. Part medicinal (I am nursing a wicked cough), part I feel like I can loosen the hell up. My Kiddo, my pride and joy, is staying with my parents for the next few days (relax! I'm not ditching him for Christmas).
BK (before Kiddo) I was (what I consider) a functioning, depressive alcoholic. Drinking was a way for me to self medicate for the fact that I was in my rape victim mode for 6 years, whereas now I am the survivor/not-a-victim/balls-to-the-walls/kicking-ass-stigma-buster. Now when I choose to have an adult beverage, I do so in severe moderation (I'm usually toasted by 3/4 of a beer) and I don't feel like I have to hide.
Anyhoo, I stumbled across this hilarious Holiday Post from Seeking Elevation (what up, YO!) and decided to link up.
Inappropriate responses to follow. . .
PS. Don't tell Becky and Ben that I'm using ellipses. They hate that shit. Plus I am double spacing!
It's time for the Fluff of Friday. It's the Holiday Edition, yo. And I think the way I'm meant to answer these is as a would you rather this or that kind of thing. Here goes:
Get kissed under the mistletoe or in the snow?
Make out under the mistletoe (What? It's been 3 friggin years since anyone kissed me!)
Santa or Rudolph?
Rudolph. Santa was a dick to him in the 1964 TV show.
Stocking or presents?
Egg nog or hot cider?
Like I said above. Hot toddy.
Angel or star?
Cheap, from Wal-Mart star that would look fitting on a pimp's Christmas tree.
Decorating the tree or putting lights on the outside?
It's kinda hard to decorate the tent I'm living in.
Warm cozy fires or sleigh rides?
I burned down my college dorm room, so I am all about THE FIRE.
Family time or friend time?
Ummm...Plead the 5th.
Expensive presents or presents that come from the heart?
From the fucking heart. Last asshole I was with decided that I wasn't excited enough when he bought me a friggin $800 bracelet. I'm sorry, jack fuck, I was too fucking shocked to think that anyone could afford to spend that amount of money. Sorry I didn't jump up and down like the bimbos on the commercials.
Snow ball fight or snowman?
Snow-wrestling. Much easier to make out.
Coal or present?
I can burn coal I suppose. . .
Open presents quick or slow?
Slow. No one likes a quick draw McGraw.
Caroling or christmas stories?
Stories, as evidenced of my son reading "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."
Snowy days or ice days?
Today it was fucking 80 degrees outside. I'm lucky if I drops below 75 on Christmas day.
Red or Green?
Fire Engine Red. Like the color of my pretend future wedding gown.
