A few favorite Christmas Quotes

See if you can guess which movies these quotes come from:

1] "Bless this highly nutritious microwavable macaroni and cheese dinner and the people who sold it on sale. Amen."

2] "I don't know if I oughta go sailin' down no hill with nothin' between the ground and my brains but a piece of government plastic."

3] "Ahh, smell those Christmas trees. You can keep your 'Channel' Number 5, just give me a whiff of the old lonesome pine. That symbol of brotherly love, that centerpiece that all mankind gathers around to share the cranberry sauce shaped like a can."

4] "What about Santa's cookies? I suppose parents eat those too?"

5] "What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That's a pretty good idea. I'll give you the moon, Mary."

I have a problem.

Actually, I have a few problems, but my primary problem is my lack of a confidant (cue Golden Girls theme song) to share my problems with. There are issues I have that I'd really like to speak to someone about, but I can't seem to find anyone to talk to! Now, don't get me wrong- I have friends that I talk to and sometimes share the annoyances in my life with. But there are times when I already know what those people will want to tell me if I share certain things. They'll want to tell me the same things I'm already telling myself.

Sometimes, I really wish I had a sidekick who's only line of dialog goes something like this: "I hear that!" following by pursed lips, a single lifted eyebrow, a nice bouncy head nod, and a couple Mmm Hm's to top it off. Almost resembling Sister Betterthanyou who sits in the Amen Pew.

I just want someone's ear. I don't want a 5 bullet plan on how to fix my problem. Quite often when we go to a doctor with our illness, he or she gives us something to address our symptoms. To cover up the outward evidence of our inward illness. This is not ideal for getting rid of the actually illness, but it sure makes you feel better! Once in a while, I'd like someone to follow suit and ignore trying to address my problem and just make me feel better! Take me for ice cream, a drive around town with the top down, or build a couch cushion fort with me.
