I’m Jewish but I have a few Christmas-related odds-and-ends. I rediscovered some of these while going through old stuff at my childhood home this year.
If any of y’all still have an old-timey record player, we can celebrate Hall & Oates’ stunning induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by playing this seasonal single.
Check out the translucent green vinyl.
I guess the “not for sale” label means this was a giveaway? I hope so. I hope I didn’t pay money for “Jingle Bell Rock” by Hall & Oates. Nowadays, when I think of Hall & Oates, I think of Lois on Family Guy making plaster casts of rock star penises a la famous groupie Cynthia Plaster Caster. Lois was into Hall, but not Oates. I’d feel bad about that, but everyone was into Hall and not Oates. Sorry, Oates! At least you’re a Hall of Famer now.
I also found this picture of me with a department-store Santa.
I’m not sure I like the way that guy is touching my shoulder but my hair is spectacular!
Meanwhile, my sister found one of my Hebrew-school report cards in her pile of old things.
See? I wasn’t kidding when I told you I was a shy child! I was always very quiet in class.
