I’m Jewish but I have a few Christmas-related odds-and-ends. I rediscovered some of these while going through old stuff at my childhood home this year.
If any of y’all still have an old-timey record player, we can celebrate Hall & Oates’ stunning induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by playing this seasonal single.
Check out the translucent green vinyl.
I guess the “not for sale” label means this was a giveaway? I hope so. I hope I didn’t pay money for “Jingle Bell Rock” by Hall & Oates. Nowadays, when I think of Hall & Oates, I think of Lois on Family Guy making plaster casts of rock star penises a la famous groupie Cynthia Plaster Caster. Lois was into Hall, but not Oates. I’d feel bad about that, but everyone was into Hall and not Oates. Sorry, Oates! At least you’re a Hall of Famer now.
I also found this picture of me with a department-store Santa.
I’m not sure I like the way that guy is touching my shoulder but my hair is spectacular!
Meanwhile, my sister found one of my Hebrew-school report cards in her pile of old things.
See? I wasn’t kidding when I told you I was a shy child! I was always very quiet in class.
I’m sure that if you’re a Mall Santa, a hot chippie sitting on your lap is the highlight of your day.
You know, this might be THE Macy’s Santa. I think I went once to the main Macy’s store as a joke. I could be making that up though because I don’t really remember much accurately! LOL.
You shy? Malarkey!
That hair is spectacular.
I meant quiet, not shy.
I was quiet and shy! Really!
I had a similar write-up from one of my professors; basically, I didn’t say much, but when I did, what I did say was “profound.”
And even though I loathe that song — no matter who sings it — the colored see-thru vinyl is always good; we need more vinyl like that.
Finally, your hair is fabulous in that old Santa photo!
That hair was weather-proof!
Awwwww… Wendy is a quiet, but lovely student. So sweet. Now you’re just lovely.
P.S. — I had a mad crush on John Oates in 4th grade. Weird, I know. Daryl was the hot one. What 10 yr. old goes for a guy with a mustache the size of Kansas?
Thinking of Lois whispering “I’m not coming back for Oates!”
