Lazy Sunday is one of the 25 days of Christmas

While being attacked by the atomic superbug from hell these last couple days (for me) and over the weekend (for C) -- Ian, luckily, only caught the wimpy younger brother of the atomic superbug, wackbug -- we indulged in a little 25 Days of Christmas on ABC Family. There was "The Year Without a Santa Claus" -- a retro stop-motion program that might instill puppet fear if it weren't so old -- "A Miser Brothers' Christmas," three words: fireball freak show. There was also The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. C didn't stay up for that one.

It reminded me of one of my favorite Saturday Night Live skits from a few years back. Lazy Sunday from 2005! I have to upload the video here for posterity and to show C what made her mother laugh for months. Months!

I tried to bring the concept of creating a similar rap-apalooza to Variety called "Crazy Thursday" -- a big deadline day -- but the idea didn't catch on. In fact, I felt the cold chill of defeat when someone told me I was flying my freak flag too high. OK, no one actually said that. But I could see it in their eyes.

So here's the original, and, alas, "Crazy Thursday" will have to live in that white-guy-rap-loving, cupcake-macking, deadline-crazy place in my mind.

Nerd up, C. It's in your genes.

I hadn't seen that skit before, but OMG. I'm laughing so much there's a tear in my eye.
