Getting in the Mood for Christmas

Darlene Love on Letterman is a Christmas Tradition. I really like this 2005 version.

If you're tracking Santa, he just arrived in Uzbekistan.

What's getting you in the mood for Christmas?

    Hope you're feeling well, my friend.  Just missed my first live tourney money last week. Finished 13th, top 10 paid, out of about 100 players.  Getting better, more comfortable.

    Peace to you and yours, my good man.

    Just tweaked this one a little, too.  Posted it here once before, not sure it caught anyone's attention.  So one more time with HOMELESS ALIEN KEPT A DIARY (LINK).

    Hope it's enjoyable to all who read, and hope all regardless have a wonderful and relaxing and joyous holiday weekend.

    Peace, my TL friends.

    An excellent read! (none / 0) (#8)

    the line that caused me to laugh out loud-- following the wonderful setups, "You're so breathtaking, it makes me want to smush our bugs together."

    Too much, Dadler! Keep us updated on poker, also!

    (in tribute to Calvin Trillin) and listening to punk rock Christmas music, courtesy of our three daughters (all in their 20s).  First number, "Christmas Wrapping," by the Waitresses.  For the other side of the family traditions, we have Ocho Kandelikas, for the fifth night of Chanukah.
