Friday Funday Wrapup!

It's Friday, we're just a little more than two weeks away from Christmas, and I'm in the mood for some figgy pudding! It must be the Friday Funday Wrapup!

Also, I have no idea what figgy pudding is and, to be honest, it sounds kind of grody. But it is Friday, so part of that last sentence was factually accurate. Anyway....let's get to it!

Ok, so a lot of you seemed to enjoy Wednesday's post and I appreciate it. However, after I saw this video below, I just have one thing to say: I totally would've let him cut me in line!

So in true holiday spirit, CB and I spent this week decorating our tree (we have glitter bulbs - obviously - and then some non-glittery items as well) and listening to Christmas music.

Well, the other night we were listening to various songs, and Bing Crosby's "Winter Wonderland" came on. I was deep in thought and listening to the lyrics when all of a sudden I heard "Later on we'll conspire as we sit by the fire."

Uh, what?

Me: Wait, he says "Later on we'll conspire?"
CB: Yeah, why?
Me: No joke, my whole life up until this very moment, I thought it was "Later on we'll perspire as we sit by the fire."
CB, laughing: Well, perspire makes sense, too.
Me: Dude, how many people do you think have heard me sing "perspire?!"
CB: Millions. 
And then I played over and over again in my mind all of the various times I've sung "Winter Wonderland" in public and then hung my head in shame.

Also, it's not "Hold me close Tony Danza" for all of you Elton John fans out there. Nor is it "Tequila Mockingbird" as I once thought in middle school.

So, this is pretty awesome.

As is this. Noticing a theme? I'm so ashamed of myself for not knowing proper Christmas lyrics that I'm simply putting a bunch of Christmas-related videos in the place of words this week.

And one last one because even though Mariah Carey drives me up a wall, girl can sing. Plus, Jimmy Fallon, those kids, and the Roots make me smile. Also, this song always reminds me of Love Actually, which has to be one of the best Christmas movies that I'll totally be making CB watch this weekend. Truth.

And now for the video of the week! I want to start off by saying that I realize this has been a very Christmas-centric post. Uh, one, I celebrate Christmas. But two, it's 'cuz I was saving my Hanukkah-related video for the video of the week because, according to Google, it starts tomorrow! To be fair, I also had to Google when Christmas is this year, so I'm an equal opportunity space cadet.

So, happy Hanukkah to all who celebrate! Enjoy!

  1. I ran into Usher shopping the sales racks at Macy's at Christmas 3 years ago in Atlanta. I was thrilled but hubby was just like Ellen, he kept asking "Who is that guy" and "Why should I know who he is" I was just smiling like a fool and chatted just briefly with him about the holidays. His bodyguards were huge!!!!!

  2. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Okay, so when you wrote that you heard the lyrics were "we'll conspire" I started laughing in my head because those weren't the correct lyrics. Why would people conspire by a fire? hahahaha.

    I've always sung 'perspire'. Oops.

    Also - my tree is very much littered with disco balls. Bling, bling!

  3. A friend had two older sisters. When she was about ten, they were all signing to the radio loud and proud when that old song from the 70’s came on, “Whoa, Whoa, Whoa it’s magic”. She very loudly sang “Whoa, Whoa, Whoa it’s my dick!” She NEVER lived it down.

  4. Okay, I am kind of in love with the fact that you used the word "grody," because that adjective is far underused. And as far as Christmas movies go, my boyfriend and I always watch "Elf" and "Bad Santa" while drinking whiskey (what does that say about us? It can't be good... unless it means we have hilarious taste), but I'm going to have to be self-indulgent and add "Love Actually" to the list - I overwatched it a few years ago and had to give it a break, but thanks for reminding me!

    1. I'm glad you like it! It's definitely underused. Also, I love "Elf" but have never seen "Bad Santa." Maybe I need to add that to my list!

  5. Love the flash mob videos! (And now if you can tell me the background lyrics to The Lion Sleeps Tonight, I'll be forever in your debt! My then-5-yr-old son used to sing "My weinie's wet, my weinie's wet" at the top of his lungs...pretty sure that's wrong. :)
