Happy Christmas your arse - part deux

I found a version of the song that I posted about last Christmas, whomever hasn't heard it must, it's just too good. :-)

Merry Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
our troubles will be miles away.

Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.

Through the years
We all will be together,
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.

And have yourself

A merry little Christmas now.

May your days be merry and bright

No snow yet in London town, which might be a good thing, since snow here very quickly turns to muddy slush. Ice and frost, we have plenty of, and white skies. Yesterday morning, as I walked by the park, there was fog lying across the ground, the bright winter sun stood just at the edge of the leafless tree tops, it was a sight to behold. Had I had my camera, that is the picture I would have posted here. It looked so wonderfully wintry.
Westminster Bridge

Happy Holidays!
(& safe journey to those heading out of town)

Breaking the ice

If this were a dress-rehearsal, it would be alright on the night.

Tag, you're it!

Me first though, courtesy of Terry and Jillie.

The mission: Confess to 6 weird things about yourself.

Finally, a tag that should be easy to complete was my initial thought, except trying to remember what other people have deemed weird (as Terry said, these things are perfectly normal to us) was not easy, at all. I do take my hat off to listen better, I talk to the television when agitated about what might happen or something someone did, I have the urge to be upside down sometimes and shopping for new clothes is more chore than fun to name a few off the top of my head, but anyway, here are the official 6.

1) I can cross my legs twice

2) I keep everything in alphabetical or chronological order, my books, my CDs, my photos, letters, paperwork, etc

3) Speaking of photos, I have to keep myself in check so as not to fill every surface with a picture of someone important to me, an occasion that brings back good memories, or an image that I'm drawn to (fields, forests, deserts, oceans, and faceless figures for some reason). I have drawers, plural (or boxes as is the case at this moment), of framed pictures just waiting on a bigger house.

4) I'm not the friend who calls (or even IMs first, as some of you guys will have realized). Not usually anyway. I have this thing about disturbing people and so unless I have a reason, I'm not likely to intrude on someone else's time. I am the friend who writes letters and emails, these people can read at leisure.

5) Getting lost is a chance to see something I would not otherwise have seen and I've always seen it more as an adventure than as a problem. It's my favourite thing to do when on holiday, getting lost on purpose and having to find my own way back.

6) I'm usually singing something. If not to the radio/CD player, to my internal jukebox of favourites. Just like I cannot keep still if it's a song that makes me want to dance, so to I cannot shut up (even when told to in loud, booming voices:) if I know the song playing.

Tag, you're it!
That means you, J, naturally.
Sweet K too, and
Christa ,
Meg &
Sorry guys. ;-)

(THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the '6 weird things about you.' People who get tagged need to write a blog post of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says 'you are tagged' in their comments and tell them to read your blog.")
