Dear Santa Claus, I want a Snowman

I have been a fairly good girl this year. Here’s what I would like for Christmas. I would like for anyone who is reading this and who has snow in their yard, to build a snowman for me. It doesn’t have to be a great big snowman, just a snowman for me with a sign beside it saying it’s mine. They can take a picture of my snowman and let me know how to find it on the internet or send me the picture and I’ll post it and a credit to them. Santa, this is all I want for Christmas.

Now Santa, there are some people in our country who I feel deserve no gifts this year, but only coal and sticks in their stocking. Here’s the list.

The entire bush administration

The guy who almost hit us last weekend because he was talking on his cell phone instead of paying attention to his driving.

The company who calls my house everyday and leaves a recorded message for someone I have never known or heard of in my life.

The person in the grocery store who failed to put the sauerkraut we had purchased into our bag. We didn’t discover this until we were about to put together corned beef Rubens, Sunday night.

Santa I’ll leave the usual chilled martini for you on Christmas eve.
Sincerely,
POP

Commenters, feel free to add anyone you would like to this list of the not so nice folks.

Someone the next block over built a snowman in the yard using plastic milk crates. that's as close as it will get. It will be in the 70s today! I am going to have the windows open.

I don't miss the snow, but it IS fun building a snowman! More fun than shoveling.

No snow here.

It's almost a daily battle with the cell-phone drivers here. It needs to be outlawed. Put them ALL on the list.

As well as all the Republicans candidates except Ron Paul. I can't believe a Republican is running that practices the founding principles of that political party. Thomas Jefferson would be please.

And all the Democrats candidates except Kucinich. The rest of them are just corporate puppets.

A snowman sounds like fun. After the third shoveling event we need some.

Well I would love to comply with your Christmas wishes, but we had about a foot of snow on Sunday and right now I am so sick of dealing with it that I don't think I am up for your snowman challenge.

I would like to add whoever won't settle the strike with the Hollywood writers to your list. I am tired of reruns already, and my wife keeps threatening to watch the Hallmark channel.

Sorry can't help with the snowman here in Atlanta. I have heard that Santa is going to take the year off so it might not do any good to put someone on his coal list.

It's warming up so all of our snow is melting! If only you had asked a few days ago. ;-)

As for the not so nice folks, this would be a ridiculously long comment, so I'll just say all those planning to vote Republican next November.

No snow here. I could build a fallen leaf man though....

I would add the realtor who helps Shrub & Laura purchase their mansion in Dallas to the list. And anyone who mistreats animals.

I have snow in my yard but it's not good packing snow anymore. Next snowstorm, I will be happy to build that snowman...it may not be before Christmas, though. That's up to mother nature.

That grocery store thing....I can't tell you how many times that has happened to me! One time they left out an entire bag of groceries that must have been given to the person behind me...after I paid for it! Fortunately, I've been going to that store for so many years they know that I'm honest and took my receipt where I marked the missing items and replaced them all for free. I'm not so sure they would have done that if I wasn't there so often.

No snow here either, but sure looks like we may get some?
Ya know I can't think of anyone to put on the list! I don't let folks get to me too much- a waste of time for me!
However if ya had asked yesterday it would have been my 2 year old niece I was watching! What is it they say about terrible 2's- well she has that good! but I survived and so did she LOL

Snowmen are rare here. People make tumbleweed men instead.

No, really.

Plenty of snow here, but it's not really sticky enough to make a snowman.... I'll give it a try though.

As for him: The guy who almost hit us last weekend because he was talking on his cell phone instead of paying attention to his driving, He really gets around doesn't he? He was in Montreal yesterday.

I will need a real Christmas miracle to give you a snowman (that is what we call an 8 on a golf score card—a saber-tooth snowman.) The chance for snow in Houston is 0%. We are going to B’ham to be with my mom, my bubbas and their families and according to the ten-day forecast, chilly, but no snow.

Given the bout of liberal apoplexy that has assailed me, my lump-of-coal list could run to volumes.

The Judester and I have agreed on a no-gift treaty this year (hope she means it or I’ll catch hell.)

As a devout agnostic, my real Christmas wish is that people of all nations, races and religions (and especially yours truly) will try just a LITTLE harder to embrace the teachings of its namesake in the areas of tolerance, compassion and charity. Oh, and I am hoping the Walton’s Christmas will be on television.

I'd make you a snowman if I could, but there's snow here only lots of good rain soaking into the dry California soil.

To your list of folks getting coal and sticks, I'd add anyone who thinks religion has a role in politics.

The snow here is too light and fluffy to make into much of anything, but we're expecting some rain that may make it "snowmanible".

You can add to the Naughty List, all Fox News anchors, any newspaper editor who thinks Britney belongs in the first section of the newspaper, and everyone who insists that their personal religious beliefs need to be codified as the law of the land.

Aw, everyone's copping out on your wish! We have mostly ice, but I am sure I could cobble a snow-ice-guy together for ya. I'll work on him tonight and get you a pic tomorrow.

i'm with robin, on the coal & sticks thing. really.

we left the snowy central sierras 6 years ago, and here we get only rain...which is much needed and welcomed by yours truly.

oh, you should post all the snowmen - or snow PEOPLE - whatever!

just today at lunch, I was almost mowed down in a parking lot by a chickeepoo who was driving while on her cell phone. Hahahahahah she laughed, she had no idea I was there. Put that idiot on the list!

What a great idea! Unfortunately, the Dallas area rarely gets snow, and when it does, it's NEVER enough for a decent snowperson.

OK, lumps of coal for drunk drivers. And I second FortyPaws on the people who mistreat animals. Um, telemarketers. Televangelists. I could go on, but I won't. (Oh, except to add: people who go on. and on. and on.)

No snow huh POP
We just had a couple of feet and it's snowing again right now. I have two 6 foot snowmen a boy and a girl holding hands out front. I will dedicate them to you and call them Mr and Mrs POP!

PoP, I'll see what I can do about the snowman. We have almost a foot near my house, I'm not sure if it is wet enough though...

I agree the person who forgot to bag your kraut deserves the lump of coal! The nerve! A Reuben isn't complete without it! Come to think of it, that sounds really good!

all we've had here in central texas are high winds. i could build at least something out of all the tree pieces that have fallen.

what's an anti-gift list without ann coulter??

May I respectfully suggest that giving the Bush Reich coal ans sticks is a bad idea? They would burn them just to enjoy watching the pollution.

I wish I'd known yesterday you wanted a snowman. I must have blown enough snow today for a hundred of 'em. Now I'm too tired.
