"Santa, baby...



.... leave a sable under the tree for me. Been an awful good girl, Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight...."

Ahhhhh, Marilyn Monroe knew exactly what to ask from Santa years ago. I've always known what to ask for, but as for what to give - that's entirely different. My dilemma this year, as opposed to many Christmases past, is that I need to give G Spot a gift. When I was with Mr. Hello Wall, for example, I made sure to dump him before the holidays, as I didn't want to have to buy him something. This year is different. Although we've been together for a while, we haven't actually exchanged gifts yet. So, this is MAJOR.

I've already bought G Spot's gifts (plural because I couldn't decide on just one and was very confused about the whole thing...). I tried to buy thoughtful and meaningful, as well as nice, gifts for him. I don't want to say what I got, in case he reads this, but let's just say that I bought gifts to appeal to his senses of:

* electronic, techy things (well, maybe I'm trying to persuade his interest in such things...)
* useful things made of leather
* underthings

The first exchange of gifts in a relationship is stressful. Perhaps I went a bit over the top, but I need to set a precedent. I want G Spot to see that I took the time to find things that he would find thoughtful, useful and cool. I want to give good gifts. The message? I want to receive good gifts, too. When in my too-long relationship with the Alcoholic Workaholic, I received a mug and set of wooden Russian dolls for xmas one sad, sad year. Needless to say, the dolls ended up in the fireplace and the mug died a tragic death in a nearby parking lot... One of the worst gifts ever! So far, G Spot has proven himself to be very thoughtful and generous, so I'm not expecting to get power tools or other such uselessness.... Still, the questions remain - what to get? how much $$$ to spend?? what should the expectation be???

I tried my best and really hope that G Spot will be happy with his electric nose hair clipper, leather fetish suit and g string!

MARILYN MONROE never recorded "SANTA BABY". The version is by the sultry jazz crooner and actress, CYNTHIA BASINET.

Find her on iTunes and Amazon.

well, if the internet says that Marilyn sang it, then I'm going with the assumption that she sang it to some lucky fellow at some time. I do see that Cynthia Basinet sang the famous version, however beginning a paragraph with "Ahhhh, Cynthia Basinet knew exactly what to ask for...." just doesn't have the same effect....

Madonna recorded this song and at the time, she was in her Marilyn period so, close enough.

WTD Records said...

The lucky fellow the song was performed for was Jack Nicholson. And unless, you've met Cynthia you'd know it has exactly the same effect. ;-)

Marilyn never recorded the song... even if the all knowing Internet says so. The miscredit is due to illegal file sharing.

We do apprecite the correction, as it does continue to mislead fans.

Find Cynthia on iTunes and Amazon.

I don't appreciate USELESS gifts either! Just as i don't like GREETING CARDS & FLOWERS! i want THOUGHTFUL& USEFUL items and not something that would gather DUST under by bed or in the cupboard! I WOULD APPRECIATE A NOVEL,FILM, TOILETRIES&UNDIES!

I love Christmas! It's my favorite time of year. Except for the fact that I'm usually too broke to buy the gifts I'd like to.
