CINDYBIN'S VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK: CHRISTMAS WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY


Ever since posting a “Video Pick of the Week” for “Whose Line is it Anyway”, that has been by far the most popular search engine term used to find my blog. Nobody cares about Cindybin and MY thoughts and feelings, MY hopes and dreams. No, they just want to learn more about that old comedy improvisational show. Sigh...oh well.

So to appease my readers, I rounded up two holiday-themed humorous skits that should entertain you. One is a “Newsflash” featuring dancing Santas, and the other is a press conference where Santa announces his retirement. Have fun!


MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE REBORN BABY DOLLS


The babies, Becky and Chelsea, wish you a very happy holiday season!

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE CATS


The kitties are simply overjoyed about the holiday season and wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!

ADDRESSING CHRISTMAS CARDS THE MOST BORING TIME OF THE YEAR





Whew, it’s done! I addressed the last Christmas card and stamped the last envelope! I just hate doing Christmas cards. And we send a lot of them. It’s so boring and tedious! Sitting at the kitchen table trying to match up cards and envelopes and writing down all these names and addresses and then SIGNING the cards and stamping and sealing the envelopes…ugh, not my favorite part of the season.

While working on this task I was thinking of my favorite Christmas song to make the job more pleasant, and then found myself inventing some new lyrics. The finished effort is really, really stupid. So I thought I’d post it on the Internet! Ha!

To refresh your memory, here are the original lyrics:

It's the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jinglebelling and everyone telling you
Be of good cheer
It's the most wonderful time of the year

It's the hap-happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
When friends come to call
It's the hap-happiest season of all

There'll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting And carolling out in the snow
There'll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago

It's the most wonderful time of the year
There'll be much mistletoe-ing
And hearts will be glowing
When loved ones are near
It's the most wonderful time of the year


And now for Cindy’s silly words:

It's the most horrible time of the year
With stamps that need licking
And address labels that need sticking
It's the most horrible time of the year

It's the ted-tedioust season of all
With those holiday greetings that are sent instead of meeting
with friends when they call
It's the bor-boringest season of all

There'll be paper cuts flowing
And writer’s cramp growing
With every card that I write
There'll be addresses that need checking
And names that need correcting
Until I finally get it right

It's the most horrible time of the year
There'll be procrastination and dreading
As I wish that I could be heading
Anyplace but here
It's the most horrible time of the year
