I came back for another snowman drink (day #1).

3 concerts down. 3 or 4 to go.

Enjoy your Bake Off, Twee. Going to try some baking yourself?

Twee It is so festive when you are here and now I am running for some Chocolate!!

Song for today!!!
Frosty the Snowman

Frosty the Snowman, was a jolly happy soul,
With a corn cob pipe and a button nose, and two eyes made of coal.

Frosty the Snowman, is a fairytale, they say.
He was made of snow, but the children know he came to life one day.

There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found,

For when they placed it on his head, he began to dance around!

Oh, Frosty, the Snowman, was alive as he could be;
and the children say he could laugh and play,
just the same as you and me.

Thumpety thump, thump, thumpety thump, thump,
look at Frosty go.

Thumpety thump, thump, thumpety thump, thump,
over the hills of snow.

Frosty the Snowman, knew the sun was hot that day,
so he said, "Let's run, and we'll have some fun now, before I melt away."

Down to the village, with a broomstick in his hand,
Running here and there, all around the square,
sayin', "Catch me if you can."

He led them down the streets of town, right to the traffic cop;

and only paused a moment, when he heard him holler, "Stop!"

For Frosty, the Snowman, had to hurry on his way,
But he waved goodbye, sayin' "Don't cry, I'll be back again some day."

I would but I can hardly find time to sleep at the moment, I get home around 9pm every day, the only free time I get is at the weekend and by then I'm too damn tired to do anything but slump on the couch
I've been meaning to bake some lemon and poppy seed financiers for weeks now, I even bought everything I needed but...
Anyway, things should get better now, class councils are done and over with, my college students took their finals tonight, now I just have like a gazillion papers to grade and it all has to be done by next week so yeah see, things are already looking up

Cuddles
That is such a nice thing to say, thank you
Alright, enough whining, I'm in charge of the cheer, you do know I'll be needing your help though, because there can't be any festivities without music

Btw, do you know what day it is?!
HaPpY St Nicholas DaY!!




I swear this is made of chocolate! Cool, huh?

Twee That was awesome!!!!!!!!!!

So Now I need to find a st nick song

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Oh! You better watch out,
you better not cry,
you better not pout,
I'm telling you why:
Santa Claus is coming to town!

He's making a list,
He's checking it twice,
gonna find out who's naughty or nice.

Santa Claus is coming to town!

He sees you when you're sleeping,
he knows when you're awake.
He knows when you've been bad or good,
so be good for goodness sake!

So...You better watch out, You better not cry

You better not pout, I'm Telling you why.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

Little tin horns, little toy drums.
Rudy-toot-toot and rummy tum tums.

Santa Claus is coming to town.



Little toy dolls that cuddle and coo,

Elephants, boats and Kiddie cars too.

Santa Claus is coming to town.



The kids in Girl and boy land

will have a jubilee.

They're gonna build a toy land town

all around the Christmas tree.



Ohh....You better watch out, you better not cry.

You better not pout, I'm telling you why.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

Santa's head is gone! Those boots look yummy.

Twee, did you have time to get out "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" for your classes this year?

I've read about St. Nicholas Day in Holland......that's the day they have presents.
Probably not a bad thing: get time off for that, and then more time off for Christmas/Boxing Day, and then New Years.

Not just in the Netherlands, St Nicolas day is a very popular celebration in most European countries; Germany, Belgium, Luxemburg, Austria, Italy, Romania... all the way to Russia. We even have it in France, but it's mostly in the north and the north east, in what we call l'Alsace & la Lorraine (he's actually the patron saint of the area). It's probably easier to list the countries that don't have St Nick
It's something that dates back from the Xth century. Every year on Dec 6th, St Nicolas de Myre comes to town and hands out gifts and candies to children, they even have him in schools.
I think Coca Cola started using him for a campaign and turned him into Santa, but originally he's a christian saint.

I haven't had time to do anything on Xmas yet, I'll do sth with the young ones on the last day.

Cuddles
Love this one, it's really festive *starts humming while preparing the calendar*

Twee-love the pictures and desserts. And, good to know he's a cheetah. He's adorable. The chocolates are gorgeous.

Cuddles, thanks for the songs.

Indy, I hope you're having fun with your concerts.

I fell. My left leg gave out (like in January, when I spent 4 days in the hospital, and 6 weeks in live in rehab). It felt like a shock going up my leg. Mostly it feels muscular now. And, when I fell, I broke my right middle finger. Then, they told me to use my crutches since I can't put any weight on my left leg. Then, I fell into a cabinet, at home, using my crutches.

They (after the EMS ride to the ER) told me it was all in my head. It's snowing now, so I'll have to see my Dr. on Monday.

So, that's where I've been. And worrying it's not going to get better, but get worse again. Of course, if it's all in my head....morons.

I can't believe Dawnie hasn't been by.

Kimmie because they can not figure it out (such jerks) it has to be in your head stupid people

Sog for the day since Indy said it

Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer
Elmo & Patsy
Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and grandpa we believe
She'd been drinking too much eggnog
And we begged her not to go
But she forgot her medication
And she staggered out the door into the snow
When we found her Christmas morning
At the scene of the attack
She had hoof-prints on her forehead
And incriminating Claus marks on her back
Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and grandpa we believe
Now we're all so proud of grandpa
He's been taking this so well
See him in there watching football
Drinking beer and playing cards with cousin Mel
It's not…

Cuddles, that's the best way I've heard that put. Make me think I'm crazy, just because they have no clue what's wrong.

I love that song! It's not Christmas time until I've heard it. Thanks Cuddles.

4 inches of snow so far. The temperature dropped below freezing, so it's sticking. It's in that "ooh, it's so pretty" stage.

Sorry you're having troubles, Bunnykins. Let's hope they get their act together and get you fixed up!

You may have to get out the fans, Twee. I'm trying to round up the Poolies for you.

I still have up my fall decorations! Maybe some time in the morning to decorate before I have to go to the next concert.

Bunnykins- you are the first one with snow! We are supposed to have some over the week-end. We haven't had a good snow for 3 years, so this may be a snow year.

Now...... off to eat those little chocolate cups next to the cupcake stand.
Great find, Twee!

8 inches of snow so far.

Indy! You are such a late decorator! When are the kids coming? Or, are you going to visit?


Dawnie says hi! She has to search for her password tomorrow. She can read, but she can't post.

Cuddles, she said to tell you she's singing along with your songs.

Twee, she said to tell you lovely pics you've chosen so far.

Kimmie
That's it girl! No more walking around for you!
*whistles two Poolboys over* Boys, you're to carry this lovely lady in your muscled arms everywhere she wants to go and wait on her hand and foot, get it?
WAIT!
*hands Kimmie a plate with the chocolat du jour and a fork* Here, this should help, now go lounge and get better, that's an order!
Oh, btw could you mail me some of that purty snow? that would be delightful, thank you

Indy
It's funny because when I found those cupcakes, my first thought was : "Indy's gonna love those"
Captain, I've unearthed my fans, give me a little time to dust them off and they'll be ready to go shortly

Cuddles
That song makes me laugh, I just can't help it. I started reading the lyrics and there it was, stuck in my head thank you

Dawn
Now that I know you're lurking, HIYA!!!!
I've got some news I want to share with you but it'll have to wait until you're here in the virtual flesh, because I want you to be able to reply
Now, find that bloody password you daft bat!
