Hope Everyone Had A Merry Christmas!

Sorry I forgot to do this in time for the actual holiday. It's not that I was too busy... I know I could have fit a 5 minute typing session in there somewhere.

I guess my muse went south for the winter, and most of the fall, and part of the summer. Either that, or I've just been pretty lazy.

Probably the second reason.

Oh! I got a great idea!

You know how when you can't figure out what to buy for someone, (especially when they've already got just about everything) you make a donation of some sort in their name? Like the wedding I went to where instead of party favors, everyone at the reception got a little card saying that $10 had been donated in their name to UNICEF or something. But what charity organization to donate to that would show the real Christmas Spirit?

Well, there is no greater gift than the gift of life. And how can you give life? (Other than that tedious 9 month thing that only women can do.) By signing up for the organ donor list!

So there you have it! Sign up that special someone for the Organ Donor List for Christmas. I'm sure they'll appreciate the wonderful honor that you're showing them.

I think I mentioned the Trans-Siberian Orchestra last year. And I seem to remember someone (Harvey) asking for an example of their music to see what my explanation of "Queen playing Christmas music" really meant.

Well, better late than never, I guess.

Here's a couple of their songs I found over on YouTube.


and my favorite

I'd like to think that this is the kind of music that Beethoven and Bach and the rest of those guys would have written if they had electric guitars. :D

Cat Picture!

I believe that I said that I'd eventually post a picture of Oreo, the cat I adopted a few weeks ago.

Well, here she is!

See. She does look like an Oreo cookie.

I guess this makes me an official cat blogger. Bleh.
