Merry Christmas, everybody!

Hi, people. Ready for Christmas yet? I am, almost. This month, my real life has been something of a whirlwind (it’s a good whirlwind, but it’s too complicated to explain online), so I’ve had to scramble on the weekends to prepare for Christmas. Basically, I whizzed through different stores for gifts, then I got out my Christmas decorations, flung a few of them around, and considered my decorating done. Plus, there’s been three Christmas parties to attend. At one of them, three men dressed up as The Chipmunks, performed a couple of songs and had everybody laughing. (“Alvin? AAALLLLVINNN!”) And we got it on video — YES!!! *does happy dance*

There hasn’t been a whole lot of spare time for reading, but I did get a few books read. I got Jack Kerouac’s On The Road done and also read John Boyne’s The Boy In The Striped Pajamas. I’ll be blogging about Boyne’s book sometime soon, in addition to Nicholas Sparks’ The Last Song. In January, I will have my first blogoversary (Wow! How did a year go by so fast?) and I’ve already started writing the post for it.

I’m keeping this post short because I’m sure everybody’s busy with their own activities. I’m including a Christmas present from me to you. It’s a short video from one of my favorite bands, singing an old Spanish carol performed a cappella (without instruments). I hope you like it. Merry Christmas!

    That was really a unique song performed by the Monkees. It was beautifully sung. Thank you & Happy New Year! – Bob
