Last Christmas, I Gave You My Heart. This Year, You Get a Video.

"You want a Christmas card?

You want a CHRISTMAS CARD?

ALRIGHT HERE.

HERE'S YOUR CHRISTMAS CARD."

*****

PS: NO PEEKING, BUT I have ANOTHER Christmas gift planned for you all.  It's something I call the 12 Bloggers of Christmas! (Except it's less than twelve, and in fact, I don't even have a solid figure.  Because lots of people were all, SURE! I'D LOVE TO PARTICIPATE! But, you know, it's Christmas and all and I bet they're off like SPENDING TIME WITH FAMILY or some crap.)

Over the next two weeks or so, I plan to have my favorite bloggers guest star over here at the Van. I'm pretty excited about it. On the roster (um, maybe?) are:


TwoBusy (also of DadCentric, plus MamaPop and PoliteFictions

JettSuperior (the original voyeurnal. Also writes at PoliteFictions )

Miss Yvonne (she runs Yo Mama's Blog and is my future DFW bestie)

Beta Dad (also found at Aiming Low)

Didactic Pirate (another DadCentric fellow, and also at Culture Brats)

Always Home and Uncool (look kids, it's DadCentric again! And Polite Fictions!)

Erin (Her blog? Her funny? Amazing. My current idol. And she's probably currently in labor. She also occasionally writes at BlogHer, Mamapedia, and ErrantParent )

Are you excited? These people are amazing (doubly so for agreeing to participate). Be excited!  I am!

(Also? These people make me look like a damn chump with their damn accolades. Clearly I did not think this through.)

  2. Dear Heroine: This just made my Xmas. Please tell me you posted this on YouTube. It's truly very funny. Keep up the good work. Or have your ghost writers keep up their good work while you take a holiday break.

    Merry Xmas.

  3. Best Christmas Card Ever.

    Reminds me of trying to get my kiddo to sit and smile for one little tiny itty bitty picture. Every single picture he either had this ridiculous fake smile, or he was upset because I kept telling him, "no, that's a FAKE smile. give me a REAL smile."

    Merry Christmas!!

  6. I cannot believe you devoted that much time to your Christmas Card... I'm not sure whether to be impressed or worried for your sanity.

    not that your family isn't like, cute. but i prefer cats to most people.

    oh, gods, not that i don't LIKE you. i mean, i do. but i don't like MOST other people.

    hmm.

  8. SD: Sweet! So, what'd you get me for Christmas, then?

    end transmission: I didn't post it on YouTube, but I still expect you to make it go viral for me. Thanks!

    Roxanne: Yes, there was a Proper Smile coaching session in the mix.

    Sassy Pants: Busted guts make me swell with pride!

    radmegan: Thanks, dude! It means a lot :)

    TwoBusy: The camera was set to take a picture every 3 seconds or something, so we just sat there hoping something would come out. Either way, my sanity has never been a question, exactly, has it?

    steph gas: Before we had kids, we posed with the cat. No lie. Those outtakes were even more hilarious. Plus, we put his paw in pain so he could "sign" the Christmas cards. Then he bit Husband. Shit was FUNNY. (Unless you're PETA. In that case, shit was NOT FUNNY.)

  9. Give me the blogs that dropped out. I'm mailing a flaming bag of placenta to their front doors.

  10. Did I really say I would guest post? Did I seem drunk when I emailed you my reply?

    Oh, well. I'll try not to tarnish your reputation.

    Also, I know what you should get your family for Christmas, if you haven't done your shopping yet. Faces!

    Merry freakin' Jesus Day!

  14. I loved the video! I am excited about the guest bloggers - humor keeps me sane. I already follow some of them but I am going to go check out the ones I don't ahead of time.

  15. Loved it! My boys even chuckled along with me because they remember being that crazy as little ones. (Who are we kidding, they're still that hard to manage, they're just bigger now).
