Awkward & Awesome Thursday

AWKWARD
- Christmas lyrics.  Or rather, mis-hearing Christmas lyrics.  I've been listening to Christmas music in my office and there were two particular songs that I, um, mis-heard.  First, I was listening to A Marshmallow World (the Dean Martin version):

It's the time for play, it's a whipped cream day
I wait for it the whole year round.

But what I heard was:

It's the time for play, it's a wet dream day
I wait for it the whole year round.
 
Then, a little later, I was listening to Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree (Brenda Lee):
 
Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Let the Christmas Spirit ring
Later we'll have some pumpkin pie
and we'll do some caroling
 
But what I heard was:
 
Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Let the Christmas Spirit ring
Later we'll have some f***in'
pie
and we'll do some caroling
 
 
I couldn't believe my ears!  I had to go back and listen a little more closely and, lo and behold, those lyrics were not what I thought they were.  I'm definitely going on the Naughty list now.
 
AWESOME
- Our Christmas cards will be delivered tomorrow!  I know we're cutting it kinda close but it's totally worth it.  They're hilarious.  Because we took the humor approach, I'm holding off on posting one on the blog until we get them in the mail.  Don't wanna spoil the surprise.  But I will tell you this - they involve Molly and a tiny elf hat.
 
- I finally ordered my 5D Mark II yesterday!!  It should be delivered on Monday - just in time for the holidays!  I cannot wait to play with it!  That's a lot of exclamation marks!!  Can you tell I'm excited!?

- I'm putting together my Christmas Mix 2011 and I need your help.  Any suggestions for some must-have holiday tunes?  I'm open to anything - from Bing Crosby to Run DMC - so tell me, what are your favorite Christmas songs?

  1. Your "awkwards" are hilarious! I really laughed reading this. My favourite Christmas song is "Fairytale of New York" by the Pogues - I play it every year until Monsieur's ear bleed :-) xo

    I really like Grown up Christmas song and the song by Band Aid, "Do they know it's Christmas..."
