Ah December 21st!

So as we come closer to the dreaded day (Christmas Eve) I find myself feeling a little older... Ok, so it's my birthday on the 24th. Ha, still makes me chuckle to know that I ruined the birth parents Christmas, neener neener neener(at least the "mom's" like I know if the "dad" was there...)! (Ok, so I was also adopted)

I thought I was finding it hard to feel festive before the weather reports, now it's darn near impossible! We are most likely going to have a green Christmas. I'm sure we'll get the weather that is in CO right now & there is always hope of a fluke Lake Effect Storm...

So I made paper snowflakes with the kiddos & started browsing amazon for some mood music!

Here is one I wish had samples. Southern Rock Christmas I may have to scour the net to get a listen to this one...

Oh yeah, now this is what I'm talking about!!! We Wish You a Hairy Christmas Gilby Clarke "I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus" Danger Danger "Naughty Naughty Christmas", LA Guns "Run Run Rudolph", Warrant "Father Christmas"... So I added it to my wish list!!! Dh will think I'm nuts when he logs in to the account again!

I can't help that I am a contradiction/ polar opposites.... I also added some quilt in a day books & some other sewing books....

And for those who love a good axe...
Merry Axemas, Vol. 2: More Guitars For Christmas Ted Nugent Rocks!!!


Merry Axemas Joe Satriani "Silent Night/Holy Night Jam ", Alex Lifeson "The Little Drummer Boy ", Steve Vai "Christmas Time Is Here"

I love surfing the net for good music!!!

What I'm listening to now.

For all of my raving on 80s hair bands I am finding myself drawn to the "angry" music of today. I'm not sure what it's appropriate label is, but I know that I am addicted to Nickelback's All the Right Reasons this one has some great songs like "Photograph" 7 "Savin Me" that are a little tamer than "Never Again" & "How You Remind Me" off of Silver Side Up or "Figured You Out" off of The Long Road But then there is always "Animals" to satisfy your thirst for music to make you blush by.

And oh yeah, change the channel when the kids are in the van with you! Last thing you want is them walking around Grandma's singing "So come on B***H get in, just get in"

I think I am drawn to them because they can put out an album (wow that dates me) that has "Figured You Out" & "Someday" on it but it still works! Not unlike Look What the Cat Dragged In With "I won't Forget You" & "Talk Dirty To Me." Guess I'm just into the hidden complexities of the artists I listen to (tee hee).
