Giggle, Wiggle and Jiggle

Note: Must read as an infomercial announcer.

Welcome to another FABULOUS Thursday here at Jumble Mash. I'm so glad that you have stopped by.

Are you getting into the Christmas spirit yet? Are you tired of hearing me talk about Christmas?

No? Then guess what I have for you! Your VERY own Christmas CD! All you have to do is buy the blank CD, pay to download the music, burn the CD, and then put it in your CD player and enjoy! You cannot beat this bargain. Especially with songs like...

O Holy Night
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
All I want for Christmas is you
Silent Night
Little Drummer Boy

Which must be placed on the CD multiple times because the creators of the ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS CD, the Jumble Mashers, chose the songs more than once! In fact Little Drummer Boy was picked, not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES!

But don't miss out on other favorites like...

Winter Wonderland
Fairytale of New York
I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas (which is also one of this announcer's favorites)
I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas
Sleigh Ride
All I want for Christmas is a Real Good Tan
White Christmas
Alive and the Chipmunks Christmas Song
Jingle Bell Rock
Redneck 12 Days of Christmas
Jingle Bells
Ave Maria
Carol of the Bells

All of this can be yours for three easy payments of $67.95. All proceeds go directly to me.

Ahem, ok, I'm back to normal now. Those were all of my commenter's favorite Christmas songs and what a list!! Some I've never heard of until now.

So new poll for the week...

When did you start your Christmas shopping?

Voting only takes a second, but it gives me something to talk about next week, so help me out!

Moving right along...the trivia question this week was If you were to receive all of the gifts in the song "The 12 Days of Christmas," how many gifts would you receive? Danger Boy was the first to answer 78, which I thought was correct, but then Cap'n Kyrie came and broke it down for us like this...

"12 partridges in pear trees.
22 turtle doves
30 french hens
36 calling birds
40 golden rings
42 geese a laying
42 swans a swimming
40 maids a milking
36 ladies dancing
30 lords a leaping
22 pipers piping
12 drummers drumming

Equals 364, I believe."

Because you get the present every freakin' time the song goes back through the numbers.

So they both win. Danger Boy picked the Giggle Button occupant first and Cap'n Kyrie's pick will go on next week. Yay for the winners!

And last but definitely not least...this week I bring to you...

Hakuna Matata

Ingrid is new here and I'm new to her blog, but I absolutely adore it already. And since I have THE best readers in the WHOLE ENTIRE BLOGGING UNIVERSE, I figured you guys would go show her some love.

With all those presents she wouldn't be my true love anymore after the third day of Christmas.

I voted, and have not started shopping yet. At least not buying, I have been in the malls a couple times but always seem to leave with something for myself.

To make matters worse, my lady friend's b-day is a week from today and I haven't even started THINKING about that yet.

I'm gonna be busy this weekend.. sigh.


Krissy said...

What a great playlist! I'm going to have to go get them all now. Thanks for doing the work for me, JM. :)

Okay, did I miss something? Where is Ingrid's link?

Danger Boy said...

Like the Simple Dude, I haven't started yet. I'm waiting for payday, hitting amazon like Tiger Woods' wife with a golf club, and if things don't show up in time, wrapping up a picture of the item I ordered with the delivery date on it.
Tough year on the wallet.

Thanks for giggling me (that kind of sounds dirty), I'll be putting up something new today that's more giggle-worthy.

Amy said...

Is anyone else astounded by the fact that it actually added up to 364? It's a present for every day of the year - what a clever thing.

Okay getting past my loserishness...
I'm also kind of shocked that nobody really had duplicate answers for favourite song. Shocker.

I <3 Christmas!!

lyndylou said...

Yes I am totally astounded that it added up to 364!!! Even thinking about working it out hurts my brain :)

I haven't heard of half those songs...

Ingrid Gray said...

Aww...JM! Thanks for the shout out! It made my day!

Jumble Mash said...

@SimpleDude- My birthday is a week from today, too! Happy Birthday to the Lady Friend...and me!

@Krissy- Should be the huge Hakuna Matata you see there in pink :) And you are welcome for the cd! I take cash

@Danger- I definitely know the woes of having an empty purse. And I think the picture thing is funny and wise!

@Amy- It is a lot of presents! And presents I wouldn't even want!

@Lyndy- Well, start downloading! LOL. They are all pretty wonferful:)

@Ingrid-You are very welcome! I'm happy to share your blog with others.

Thisisme said...

Jumble, I want that CD!! Brilliant post - again!!

Krissy said...

Okay, apparently I was having a MAJOR blonde moment. Please disregard the above post as I was temporarily out of my mind.. which is different from normal... right? Ummm, I think I'll go now.

Jess said...

That's so much funnier when you do the infomercial voice your head while reading.... LOL

Jumble Mash said...

@Thisisme- Thank you! It was you all that came up with the list though, I just put it together!

@Krissy- Haha. That's ok...we all have our moments:)

@Jess- I know, right?! LOL I couldn't think of a better way to provide the list than to "sell" it.

Dad said...

Dearest JM...I started your shopping in about August...and tonight I did my favorite thing...I went shopping for your stocking!!!!

pirategeek9 said...

I fall under the "haven't started shopping yet" category but since there are 4 others who have already voted that, I don't feel bad. I at least know what I'm getting for Hubby...but that's pretty much it.
