New link to A Painting a Day.

At School Today: A thin version of A Christmas Carol, in play format. Such a dramatic little plot, lost on the ear of those unable to sit and listen. I tried pausing at key bits (Tiny Tim in church) and asking, What just happened there.

One of my favorite parts of this weekend's trip to Maryland was driving with C through her suburb, listening to Bing Crosby and looking at light displays (moving deer! flamingoes!). Who knew she could sing "Christmas in Killarney" so well?

I'm sure your friend is fabulous, but can she hold a candle to The Waitresses' "Christmas Rapping"? And have you heard Dolly Parton and Rod Stewart (no kidding) singing "Baby It's Cold Outside"? Actually, it could be a lot worse. (Dolly also does a surprisingly good version of "Stairway to Heaven"... again, no kidding.)
