You're welcome.   ;D


This deserves a spinoff but I'm too tired to start one.

How many people have received a CD (or, once upon a time, a cassette) from a relative with the admonition "Your [cousin/niece/distant-relative] sent me this ... listen to it, she sings beautifully". Upon giving it a trial listen, you hear someone like in the cassette above, who truly believes that she can sing but really really really can't, howling his/her favorite hymns or else covering the latest pop star's vocal meanderings. You can push the stop button, but the really uncomfortable part is figuring out what to say when asked "isn't it beautiful?"

Of course, this spinning off of topics could be endless, like being asked my opinion of the distant relative being married in the photo my wife showed me (I had luckily begged out of having to go) ... "Isn't she beautiful?" --- I was biting my tongue hard to avoid saying "she looks like two cows in a flour sack."

Oops! Looks like I wandered a far piece away from Christmas songs. Sorry.
There is no 'way to peace.' Peace is the way.

Kind of like the Hillary Duff CD I bought my daughter?  :)

Picture me curled up on the floor gasping with laughter while tears of Horror / Hilarity stream down my face .

Now picture me sending this link to EVERY SINGLE PERSON I KNOW .

You have made my Christmas and I alternately Thank and Curse you .
As ear-splitting as that was after the first minute, NOBODY can beat William Shatner's Mr. Tambourine Man!
