Santa Baby- Bookstore Style!

Over the last three years, I have sent quirky emails to the seminary faculty and students to entice them to come down to the store for various reasons. One of my favorite students suggested that I should just blog these things. So here's today's email sent to the faculty with the hope that they will send me their booklists- soon!




To the tune of Santa Baby....

(baboom baboom baboom baboom) (baboom baboom baboom baboom)

Santa Baby,
Just slip some book lists under the tree,
For me!
Been an awful good girl,
Santa Baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight!


Santa baby,
Some January syllabi too

They’re due!
I'll wait up for you, dear
Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight!


Think of all the fun I've missed.
Think of all the students that I haven't dissed.
Next year I could be just as good,
If you'll check off my Christmas list!

Santa Baby,
I want to mark the invoices “bought,”
Really that’s not
A lot.

Been an angel all year,
Santa Baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight!


Santa honey,
one little thing I really need

To read
Dr. Wengert’s book list,
Santa Baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight!


Santa cutie, and fill my mailbox with some fed ex
And texts,
For the purchasing line,
Santa cutie,
and hurry down the chimney tonight!


Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some emails from the profs at LTSP!
I really do believe in you.
Lets see if you believe in me!

Santa Baby,
Forgot to mention one little thing

A ring.
Yes, I mean on the phone!
Santa Baby,
please call me with the book lists tonight!

Hurry down the chimney tonight!
Hurry...tonight!
