There's two things that George R.R. Martin is probably sick of by now. The first is obviously fans pestering him about finishing the Game of Thrones books (but I mean, seriously dude). The second is likely all the jokes about how he kind of looks like Santa Claus. Sure he's an older man with a beard and a bowl full of jelly, and he has probably called himself a jolly old elf before. But you don't want this guy in charge of Christmas.
