Merry Christmas! [here’s another golden oldie from the blog archives]


On Christmas Day—blog?
I’d rather have grog,
Or maybe eggnog,
Then go walk the dog.
Or watch a Yule Log,
And eat like a hog,
Then go for a jog.
Blogging’s a bog.
My mind’s in a fog,
Or maybe agog
From much dialogue.
I’ll return to the slog
Tomorrow, and blog.

[NOTE: This is another recycled poetic effort of mine. By the way, on the words “the dog,” that’s a picture of the actual dog we had when my son was growing up.]

    Suggested addition:
    Or under the mistletoe,snog.

    As many of my ancestors came from the British Isles, I assume it is politically correct to appropriate British slang.

    Marshall Field, when they were still in business, sold the world’s best chocolate mints, Frango Mints. I used to melt them in hot chocolate. Just as Frosted Flakes has Tony the Tiger, Frongo Mints had Frango the Frog. So i called the mint flavored cocoa Frog Nog. I still make it, using Andes Mints. I think I shall go make some now!

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
