Thursday Thirteen #8 — Special Hanukkah Edition

Thirteen Things about Hanukkah as listed by Amy, Chelle, and Kerri, the ladies around here. So far.

If you aren’t a regular West of Mars groupie, you might want to start by reading this post.

1. You’re asking three shiksas? (Amy)

2. You can spell the name of the holiday six different ways, which makes the copy editors go nuts. (Chelle)

3. Candlelight. (Kerri smiles and licks her lips knowingly)

4. Hey, if you’re going to involve me in my little brother’s sex life, try this on for size: Hot oil! (Amy)

5. Girl, that’s too kinky for my blood! Give me the chocolate coins instead! (Chelle)

6. You can do plenty of kinky things with chocolate coins, Chelle. (Kerri, who winks while her sister-in-law gags)

7. Is Hanukkah a kinky holiday, or is it just us? (Kerri)

8. You’re the dirty ones, not me. (Chelle)

9. Back to Hanukkah… those spinning tops. Only religion I’ve ever heard of that condones gambling. (Kerri)

10. How’d you know all this? I thought I’d be the expert here since I have to read the same stupid articles in my paper every year. (Chelle)

11. It’s a story of a war victory and oil that lasted eight days instead of one. And this is where I point out that the winning team was led by a woman. (Amy)

12. Back to the oil, Aim? Is there something we should know about you and Derek? (Kerri, who’s grinning)

13. I give up! I can’t do a damn thing with these two dirty birds here! Did anyone notice that you stuck me in a room with the two women closest to Mitchell Voss? What is it with that man and sex?

Happy Hanukkah, everyone! If you’d like to celebrate with ShapeShifter, you might want to check out this post, too.

    EEW! Latkes and something kinky? That’s just … gross! br /br /Although, I suppose you could get sidetracked while making them, but then the oil might burn and catch on fire and my goodness, that’d be embarrassing, wouldn’t it? *grin*

    I don’t think there’s any “may” about that six ways thing, Ali. In fact, I’m not sure there is a WRONG way!

    Yeah, they sort of seized control and didn’t let go until Chelle walked out, disgusted, while Amy and Kerri collapsed against each other, laughing until their guts hurt…

    Seems to me there was three things about Hanukkah in there, shiksas, oil and spinning tops… I don’t understand any of /br /Merry this-time-of-year festivities.

    December 23, 2006 6:15 pm

    Thanks for the laugh! 🙂 There might be 6+ ways to spell Chanukkah, but remember the “C” is silent (and OJ Simpson – still not a Jew). br /br /Listening to too much Adam Sandler once again… but it’s a pleasant diversion after hearing Bruce do “Santa Claus is COming to Town” AGAIN. Somedays living in the Boss’ backyard is not fun.
