Jimmas* is just 1 day away! YAY!
I have a great, smart and talented friend named Liz. She really gets my weird sense of humor and finally wrote down the lyrics to some of our favorite Jimmas Carols:
Have a falling down, drunken Jimmas;
It's the best time of the year.
I don't know who will unswallow,
but have a mug of beer.
Have a falling down, drunken Jimmas...
Here's another one she wrote:
Deck the cart with liters of rum; fa la la la la la, la la la la.
Tis the season to be wasted; Fa la la la la la.
Don we now our 'straight curious' apparel; Fa la la la la la, la la la la.
Troll the beach for a dude named Carol; fa la la la la la, la la la la....
I responded with my own:
We three drunks from the Impaler are,
Stumbling around from bar to bar...
Drinking rum with anyone who will buy,
Out underneath the darkening sky...
Jimmy Ricketts is turning five point Oohhh
Let's just see how far he'll go...
first he's looking, then he's kissing...
Fondling some big bust... Oh no!
(OK, that one has some a few private jokes in it. If you have been reading my blog for a while y'all know our renaissance faire pirate group has a ship we call the Impaler. I wrote about our the crew here.)
As y'all are reading this I will be in Rockport, TX on the beach with Liz and her husband! They call their home: Racapulco. So this is a Jimmas carol I wrote to them before I left Dallas:
You better watch out,
Don't let the keg run dry,
Get the Lambic out,
I'm telling you why...
Jimmy Ricketts is coming to Racapulco!
He's making a drink list,
And checking it twice,
He wants to make sure,
That all the shots are real nice,
Ohhh... Jimmy Ricketts is coming to Racapulco!
Surely the reader of my blog can remember the words to some other favorite Jimmas carols?
Let's see how creative y'all can be.
*Jimmas is like Christmas, but for me!
Jimmas isn't a person... it's a holiday.
One wouldn't say "Oh for Christmas' sake!" would you?
