Every Saturday WTIT: The Blog brings you a meme called Saturday 9. It’s not to say that this is a bright idea, but it is what we do. A woman named Crazy Sam started this meme because a prior popular Saturday meme specialist Lola had retired. So, Sam contacted all Lola’s participants and invited us to participate in her meme. The biggest difference is that Sam enjoys our participation. All of Sam’s questions and writing are in bold.
1. Do you enjoy receiving or giving presents more? I am a Saint. St. Budwick, I believe. But, when it comes to the joy and true meaning of Christmas, it is everyone for themselves. So I’d rather be getting the loot.
2. What is you favorite holiday film? It’s a Wonderful Life. We did a spoof of that film at WTIT. We called it It’s a Shitty Life. Our spoof was dead on. The husband comes home to find his wife in bed with a woman. As he starts to question her about it, the West Hartford Band and Bugle Corps wandered in and join the action. Nothing says Christmas better than a fucking orgy.
3. Have you started or finished your gift shopping? Why is today Christmas Eve? I’m a guy. Geez.
4. What does this time of year mean to you? You mean besides the old mistletoe on the belt buckle trick? Seriously, this time of year is special. It is SO much easier to pick up a woman at a bar. I went to a new bar last night. As we pulled into her driveway she said, “I don’t usually pick a guy up at a bar and bring him home.” I had to say, “Of course not. Tonight was special.” It’s all about New Year’s Eve. Women hate spending it alone. So far I have twelve New Year’s Eve plans.
6. What do you love about the holiday season? I think it is from a song. I am not sure. It goes, “Christmastime, and the women are easy…” I think Fantasia sang it in season five.
7. What do you hate about the holiday season? When it’s over, it is fucking January in New England. Maybe it is just me, but I hate freezing my balls off.
8. Who will you spend the holidays with? Which one? Christmas Eve, I am with my family. Christmas Day I have a tradition of sorts with the twins. It’s called “Doing the Mrs. Claus twins.” It spices things up. As far as New Year’s Eve goes, it’s all about waiting for the best offer. I have a dozen so far, but there will be more.
9. Do religious ceremonies play a part in your holiday traditions? If yes, how? The WTIT Marching Band, Orchestra and Choir does a religious Christmas Eve concert that is very spiritual and moving. At the end we pass the basket for holiday donations. It’s a great scam and I make a bundle.
