Holly Jolly Fat-mas

On Christmas day we woke up and got our Christmas on as usual. Some people weren’t cheerful because some people weren’t nice this year and Santa didn’t come see them. I’m not pointing fingers.




My dad got a roof for his Polaris Ranger and a Paula Deen skillet. He’s an enigma.


We bought my mom an iPad, she was quite surprised in case that isn’t extremely obvious. She can’t use it or turn it on, but she sure has had fun holding it and imagining all the things she will do when she figures those steps out.


That little monster found a little Reese’s cup and ate it in .078 seconds. She couldn’t even be bothered to unwrap the damn thing. So uncouth.


My dad requested an outdoor broom for Christmas. When I was carrying the wrapped broom to my car on Friday, a guy in the parking lot asked if somebody was getting a Nimbus 2000 for Christmas. I replied that it was a Firebolt and that he was going to be my new best friend forever. You can’t hide from my friendship sir.


My mom gave me a copy of my award winning artwork. Oh, you didn’t know I was an artist? Well, I sure am. In 1992 I won $50 for depicting a day in my dad’s life.


I am a great American treasure. I also got a lot of things for my upcoming trip, including the all important and much appreciated cash donation.


For the big finale, my sister got her boyfriend a motorcycle.


Lucky man. After the presents, we installed the roof on my dad’s Ranger, and took a ride in the freezing cold air (It was below 40 degrees after all).


After the wild ride, I headed in for leftovers and to get started on my dad’s Christmas present.

So far, it’s n0 killing Lincoln. Sad times. A cold front blew in during the afternoon, so while I read, others enjoyed some napping by the fire.

Can you find the fat napper hiding in the background of that photo? God forbid they have to sleep on the same side of the stove. Noooooooo, that would be too easy.

Someone overdid it on the catnip.

We wrapped up the day with some leftovers and a trip to see Django Unchained.

It was amazing. If you loved Inglorious Basterds, then you will not be disappointed. It was so incredibly funny,yet so unbelievably graphic (as expected). It was just perfect. Also, ol’ Leo was such a super creepy creeper. Could not believe that was my sweet faced Jack Dawson.

  1. Alright, question on the movie: Is it graphic in a serious way or in a funny way? I did not see Inglorious Bastards b/c I heard it was graphic, and am trying to decide about this one…

    • Reese's Runner

      Well it’s graphic in a violent way. It’s not the whole movie though. But, when people get shot things splatter theatrically. And there’s a massive bloody battle at the end. Of course there is a lot of beating and whipping because it is a movie about slavery, so that’s always upsetting to watch.

  2. Bahaha, the title of this post cracked me up! I’ve been wondering about that movie….”the D is silent”…will probably have to go check it out!

    LOVED Inglorious Basterds, but had been considering blowing off Django. May have to reconsider…

    I can’t imagine my lil baby being naughty… ever. She is so sweet and selfless. Surely Santa was mistaken. Also she takes after her mother on the inhaling of reeses. If you could get away with eating the wrapper and it not having ill affects… you would. So don’t even judge my baby.

    Ahhh so excited for Django! Loved Inglorius Basterds so good to hear that I’ll dig this. And that Leo is like a fine wine. He just gets hotter the older he gets! It took me 6 hour to make a normally 4 hour drive back to Boston yesterday so I made my roommate come with me while I cried my face off at Les Mis. :)

  6. I don’t have time to read this before work (ie, should have left two minutes ago), but I wanted you to know that the title alone made me laugh. Thanks.

    I believe in artsy circles, your drawing would be referred to as “Folk Art” and could fetch millions. You should find a dealer.

    Can’t wait to see “Django.” I’ve heard that it’s pretty graphic, but since it’s a Quentin Tarentino movie, I’m not sure why anyone would expect anything less.

  8. LOL to the Firebolt conversation. You should check out @MuggleHustle. It’s a 24 year old from Texas who is reading the Harry Potter series for the first time and he makes hilarious observations.

  9. I was supposed to see Django Unchained on Christmas but our friends were “too tired.” Psh. Lame.
    Speaking of Leo, I’m dying for the new Great Gatsby he’s in. DYING I tells ya!

  10. I had to google both Nimbus 2000 and Firebolt… No wonder you want to be besties with him!

  11. I can’t wait to see Django! Tried tuesday night, but it was sold out so we saw “this is 40″ instead. Also pretty fantastic.

    Glad you had a good holiday!

  12. Thanks for the recommend on the new Tarantino. I did like Inglorious Bastards.

    Who is going to take care of Bardot during your trip?

    The Kidless Kronicles

    • Reese's Runner

      I’m going to fill a trough with food and set up a litter box and wish her good luck. Obviously not, but one of my friends in town is keeping. She’s an easy sell since she sleeps all day and requires zero exercise.

    I LOVED Django! I think it may be my favorite Tarentino movie yet, at least on par with Pulp Fiction. The mask scene was so funny, I was snort-laughing in the theater. Its blazing saddles level good.

  14. Megan

    I was an extra in that scene of the Avengers!! I got to see that beautiful man up close and personal. His accent is amazing and he was super friendly with everyone. It was seriously such an awesome experience!

    Glad to hear you had a good holiday! Have a good weekend!!

  15. hahaha, your dad’s life was so exciting! Pretty good pictures also. Do you want to do a cartoon guest post for me?!

    And the firebolt comment nearly made me spit out my coffee. That’s probably exactly what I would have said. A Nimbus 2000? Come on now. Get with the times.

    Are Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln worth reading?

    • Reese's Runner

      I really enjoyed Killing Lincoln. So good. I hated Killing Kennedy. The writing style was atrocious and only a tiny portion of the story was about the assassination. Also, no mention of any conspiracy theories. Bollux!!!
