I have a ton of stuff I should be doing.
I need to finish cleaning my kitchen, as I’m hosting a big brunch here on Sunday.
I need to flippin clean up my office. It’s a disaster.
I need to wrap some presents, because I have a huge pile of shipping boxes and shopping bags not so skillfully hidden in my bedroom.
I need to make my treat to take to the Relief Society party tonight.
I need to go out and check on my chickens and see if they’ve left me a very cold egg.
I need to hem those pants for my daughter, that she left hanging on my sewing chair.
I need to finish arranging my furniture in the front room that got rearranged by the Christmas tree.
I need to haul about 60 pounds of crap from the basement to the garbage.
I need to take a shower and get ready for the day. I get to teach 1/2 day at the Jr High today (woo-hoo).
I need to start a load of laundry.
And yet, here I sit, writing Tillamook Cheese Christmas carols for a contest.
The 1st prize is FREE Cheese, people. Free Cheese!
So far I’ve got this little jingle, to the tune of “Have yourself a merry little Christmas”
Have yourself a merry slice of cheddar,
Tillamook’s so light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight.
Have yourself a chunk atop a cracker,
make it Tillamook.
It’s so nice
for snacking, won’t you take a look.
Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful cheeses are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.
Through the years
We all will have our favorites,
Colby, swiss, or jack
All the greatest dairy products from the cow.
So have yourself A slice of Tillamook right now.
I can do better, though.
How about this one?
Just slip a cheddar under the tree
Been an awful good girl
Santa Baby, make sure that it’s Tillamook cheese
Santa baby, chocolate peanut butter ice cream
I’ll wait up for you, dear
Santa baby, make sure it comes from Tillamook
Sour cream is oh so smooth
How about a package of Till-a-moos
Next year I could be just as good
If you’ll bring along a block of swiss.
Santa Baby, Colby Jack and Pepper Jack sliced
Been an angel all year
Santa Baby, so bring me something Tillamook tonight.
Santa honey, a bag of shredded Mexican blend
Makes our tacos so fine
Santa Baby, make sure it comes from Tillamook
Santa cutie, and fill my stocking baby Swiss
Provalone is so fine
Santa cutie, make sure it comes from Tillamook.
Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations that are Chees-y
I really do believe in you
Lets see if you believe in me
Santa Baby, forgot to mention yogurt so sweet
Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight
