Since I don't celebrate Christmas
I don't generally do Christmas memes. But this one was so funny





On the twelfth day of Christmas, mofic sent to me...
Twelve candrawests drumming
Eleven tartanshells piping
Ten manticorans a-leaping
Nine kathbs dancing
Eight hockeyiris a-breastfeeding
Seven ewa_lottas a-writing
Six cyclops a-beading
Five le-e-e-esbians
Four star wars
Three palm pilots
Two scott summers
...and a x-men in a queer theory.
Get your own Twelve Days:





I particularly liked the Five Lesbians part. But I don't want to send five lesbians to someone else, I want someone to send five lesbians to me!

This is reminding me of when Kendra was 9 or 10 and we were traveling to school and she had just heard The Twelve Days of Christmas somewhere. She asked, "How many birds are there altogether in the song?"

So we figured it out - "Well, there are 12 partridges in pair trees and 11 times 2 equals 22 turtledoves, remember 34, okay Kendra? and..."

No, I don't remember what it came to. Yes, it probably would have been easier if I'd taken out my Palm and figured it out using the calculator but math in your head on public transit is fun, dammit!

Apparently, I'm sending you some dykes and faygelehs, at least. *points to own 12 Days meme*

And I agree that math in your head on public transit is fun!

And I thank you for them. I shall endeavor to put them to good use!

I'm getting a funny picture in my head of six Cyclopses a-beading!

LOL! A little hard to picture, indeed. I wonder how it decides when to choose from your flist, when from your interests and when from the actual song (maybe the last for people who don't have enough friends and interest?)

I don't use LJ enough to make the meme interesting, but I love the end of it:

Three boob nazis
Two jam bands
...and a LiveJournal meme in a pear tree.

P.S. You were in there "Six mofics a-laying"
P.P.S. I used to travel all around NYC doing math with my college friend and then roommate Sharon - great fun!

LOL! I'm glad I made it to somebody's meme!
