'Twas the blog before Christmas

Wednesday, December 24, 2008
And all through the house
the dominos were playing, someone's brother acting like a louse.
The stockings were hung on the wood paneling in the basement with care
in hopes that the dogs wouldn't chew on them (or anyone's underwear).
Grandma was tucked in and snug in her bed,
Neil Young, Clapton and the Eagles were stuck in their heads.
The cookies and memories brought out some really mushy sap,
And Uncle Ray's educational re-gift made sure no one would get the clap.

It's Christmas Eve at the Baileys, and yes, the dominos ended violently when someone (not naming names) (who may be a little brother of someone who blogs regularly) was a POOR LOSER, and yes, someone thoughtfully re-gifted a STD Prevention brochure. But now the cousins are fighting it out over the couches- 6 cousins, 4 couches...

and I'm about to tuck myself in (on the floor- I lost) with Hugo, the Hippopotamus that I got for Christmas.

From under the tree (literally) at my house to you, where ever you are in the world- peace and love.
