Mistletoe And Whine

In a weeks time it will be Christmas Day and the Yaxlich family will be re-enacting the video he posted the other day. He is going to his sisters for Christmas dinner and his parents are coming up from the Isle of Wight to eat a lot and complain about how expensive everything is these days.

It will be nice to see his family and to eat a nice dinner but the one thing he is really not looking forward to is listening to Cliff Richard. Both his mummy and his sister are big fans and Yaxlich can guarantee that at some point, the Cliff Christmas CD will come out.

His mummy will talk about how she saw him in 1963, his sister will drag out her Cliff scrapbook and the CD will magically go onto auto repeat at which point Yaxlich will try to remove his ears with a spoon.

Removing ears by spoon would be painful.

Use some cotton wool or something.........

Or maybe Father Christams could being you an ipod, and you can quietly listen to your own music.

If Father Christmas is dishing out iPods then I hope he remembers me.

I used to love dear Cliff - but that was in the days of yore before I knew about real music. Have fun. I'll giggle in commiseration on your behalf on Christmas Day.

A glass or two of wine and earphones take the edge off.



Blogger Sally Lomax said ... (7:26 am) : 

Yes wine definitly softens the edge at this time of the year. That's why so much is consumed over the fetive period.



Blogger Tish said ... (9:11 am) : 

It could be worse, it could have been "London Philharmonic Orchestra Does Abba". Tish has that on cassette, courtesy of smallest Tishette one Christmas some years ago.

It's actually not bad.

Yaxlich could of course mistakenly use said Cliff Richard CD as a coaster... and spill his coffee... several times. Yaxlich may well find the (natural) weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth that follows more palatable than Ol' Cliff.

If all else fails, head Downunder and go on a "summer holiday". At the beach, no-one can hear you scream.

Sally - removing his ears with a spoon would, indeed, be painful but not nearly as painful as listening to Cliff Richard for six hours.

Wendz - the giggling should start around 3.10pm which is just after the Queens speech. This is normally when the torture begins.

Anonymous - is little bear your name or current state of undress?

Tish - Yaxlich quite likes the sound of your cassette. He thinks he might add it to his list this year.

Who in this fanciful world is Cliff Richards? I think that I am glad that I don't know because I kind of like my ears on the side of my head. They make me feel balanced. Well, at least they give me the illusion.


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (10:38 pm) : 

CJ - have you really never heard of Cliff Richard? If so then Yaxlich will gladly swap places with you even if you're a dwarf pygmy with a wooden leg and an albatross for one ear and a steaming pile of elephant dung for the other.
