TMI Thursday: The War on Christmas

**Inspired by Sean at Just a Jeep Guy**
  1. Which religion or faith do you belong to, if any? I was raised in a fundamentalist home where abuse and profanity flew through the air six days a week and on Sunday we put on our "Sunday Best" and went to church to act like decent humans. I imagine that since I learned you can hide socially unacceptable behavior behind religion; it was natural I could hide my sexuality behind the sacred. This doesn't work (period). I learned that religious people are generally sanctimonious pricks who love to live the lie. I attended a denominational university for my undergrad where I learned that if you follow the primary teachings of Christ to “Love others as yourself” and “Whatever you do unto the least of these, you do unto me”. A philosophy of acceptance and helping our fellow humans… there would be fewer DICKS in this world.   
  2. What is your opinion of seasonal greetings and salutations? If someone offers me a seasonal greeting I return it. As we get closer to the day, Generally at this point in December, I wish people “Happy Holidays”. As we get closer to 12/25, I say “Merry Christmas”. Basically… Don’t be a Dick about it!
  3. Holiday music on the radio? I have a couple hundred holiday tunes on my iPod. I’ll listen to the all holiday, all the time stations occasionally. Usually this is short lived because they foolishly play “Santa Baby” or some other equally heinous tune that I must change before I gouge my ears with an ice pick.
  4. What is your policy for exchanging gifts? In an effort to save feelings I do not exchange. **Don’t be a Dick”**
  5. Gift cards are... AWESOME!
  6. Christmas cards/family update letters are... TEDIOUS
  7. Snow is... fine in the mountains.
  8. Have you been a good little boy or girl? I’m not sure.
    1. Food – Pizza
    2. Dessert – Cheesecake
    3. SongGrown Up Christmas List
    4. Movie – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacationgriswolds1
    5. Tradition – Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast on Christmas Morning.
BONUS… Christmas sex:
  1. tmiWhat have you done under the mistletoe? Just kisses
  2. Have you caught daddy kissing Santa Clause? Not yet. Maybe this year?
  3. Have you done it a Santa suit? Seems like that would be awfully sweaty and itchy, don’t you think?
  4. Did you come down the chimney? No but I’ve done it in the shower a few times.
  5. Just how merry have you made Santa's helpers? I do try to spread Holiday cheer through Growlr and Adam4Adam.
Post and answer the questions on your blog or tumblr page and then post the link in the comments so that others can read your answers, visit your website and get to know you too. I post my answers on Thursday.


  1. I think you ought to tie some mistletoe to your belt buckle then go down to the bar and see if anything special happens.

  2. I played! I needed a good prompt, tonight. My brain is mushier than mush. So, I thank you very much for the inspiration. :-)

    1. I loved your comment on Santa Baby. Feliz N avidad by Jose Feliciano has the same effect on me. By the way, I've added your blog to my blogroll.
