Merry Christmas from Top Idol
Happy Xmas to everyone from St. Louis, home of the Cardinals, the Blues, BBQ pork steaks, toasted ravioli, the Arch, the largest Bosnian community outside of Bosnia and the birthplace of myself and…Jon Hamm!
Since arriving back here on Tuesday, I’ve done two classes of that crazy Bikram Yoga crap, the “hot box” stuff (there is a place down the street from my parents’ house) and hung out with my family. I have gotten my parents through the entire first season of Mad Men. Xmas Eve confirmed that my family just wants to break out into song whenever possible, which is rather odd, considering we are not very uh, tuneful. My one brother-in-law even knew a bunch of words to…Rent? (I hate Rent. Anyhoo, I had no idea he loved it.) It was also discovered that my siblings and two of my nieces are also…Kris Allen fans!!! In fact, my niece asked me not to make fun of her when she opened the CD (a gift from my mother, as directed by my sister). Obviously, she does not read my blog. I informed her there would be none of that going on, although I will, in fact, still bet money on that Taylor Lautner kid being gay. I even semi-bonded with one sister over…So You Think You Can Dance. Thankfully, she hated Mollee, too! Funny how you can find common ground with family members over shitty reality talent shows.
I hope everyone had a very, very, very merry Christmas. What have you been doing over the holiday? Any good gifts? Stay tuned for the 2009 These Mean Nothing Awards — have you gotten your suggestions in yet?
