Merry Christmas, Everyone!!

Postby Judy C. » Wed Dec 16, 2009 1:38 pm

T'was the night before Christmas, and here in the south
My flyers were chewing the wheel off my mouse.
I'd hung up the stockings to fill them with nuts
and fruit and surprises for my little furbutts.
I got them all filled for the morning - what fun!
It was getting quite late, so to bed I did run.
I snuggled right down, and to sleep I soon went,
knowing that things were set - I was content.
It would be quite a day to remember, I know.
The weatherman even held out promises of snow!
I had the best dreams, full of Christmas times past
Family, friends, laughter - the years went by so fast.
And then down the hall there arose such a clatter
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
I rushed down the hall and threw open the door
And Horrors! my Christmas was all over the floor!
There went Muffin, and Flip, trailing ribbons everywhere
And Pierre and Queenie both landed in my hair.
Those rascals all got their cage open someway,
Discovered their stockings and wouldn't wait until day.
The nuts were all rolling around on the floor
With apples and oranges and goodies galore.
Wrapping paper was torn, and was really a mess
And the stockings were shredded and built into their nests.
The squirrels were so happy, and having so much fun
I knew that this Christmas was the very best one.
And I'd just like to say, before I clean up this mess...
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL - YOU ARE EACH THE VERY BEST!!!

Here's a recipe for your Christmas party:
Jose Cuervo Christmas Cookies

1 cup of water
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup or brown sugar
4 large eggs
1 cup nuts
2 cups of dried fruit
1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila

Preparation:
Place your Flyer in your shirt to keep you company while you prepare the cookies.
Stop flyer from sampling the Cuervo to check quality.
Take a large bowl,this time, you sample the Cuervo to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink.
Turn on the electric mixer.
Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Remove flyer who has decides to "ride" the beater. Scrape butter off flyer and return it to the bowl ... the butter, not the flyer!
Add one peastoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point it's best to make sure the Cuervo is still ok, try another cup just in case. Remove flyer from your glass.
Turn off the mixerer thingy.
Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Remove fruit with a flyer attached.
Pick the frigging fruit off the floor that flyer tossed as he selected "the best" pieces soaked in Cuervo.
Mix on the turner. Fight off flyer who "wants to ride again".
If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaters just pry it loose with a drewscriver.
Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity. Remove flyer from your glass.
Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Who geeves a sheet. Check the Jose Cuervo. Remove flyer from your glass. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts.
Add one table. Glare back at flyer who's eyes are now crossing.
Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find that flyer hasn't spilled all over the floor.
Greash the oven. Return buttered flyer to mixer after greasing oven with him.
Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Glare at flyer who is now on his back "riding a bicycle".
Don't forget to beat off the turner. Flyer can no longer hop in a straight line to "get on board".
Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the wishdasher.Return snoring flyer to your bed and crawl in his nest box for a nap.

Momo says Merry Christmas too! (And yes, that is a tiny Santa hat. Pecan distractions totally work!)
