. . . christmas tunes . . .

. . . think/say what you will about glee . . .
. . . but, the production numbers are usually genius . . .
{they put to shame anything we ever did in show choir ~
the only choreography i remember was swaying back and forth as couples
during "i can't help falling in love with you" ~ BORING!
sorry mr. garrett :( }

. . . case{s} in point . . .
. . . "proud mary/rollin' on the river" in wheelchairs . . .
. . . "singin' in the rain/umbrella" with all that water . . .
. . . "marry you" at finn/kurt's parents' wedding . . .

. . . so ~ yes ~ i picked up
saturday night . . .
. . . wrestled with the wrapping
in the target parking lot . . .
{why are they sooooo hard to open?}
. . . popped it in my cd player . . .
{which skips all. the. time. grrrrrrr!}
. . . and heard the first three tracks
by the time i got home . . .
. . . xoxoxoxoxo . . .




. . . fast forward to sunday . . .
. . . on my way to church . . .
. . . track four comes on . . .
. . . "baby, it's cold outside" . . .
. . . let's just say i was startled . . .

. . . if i'd seen the christmas episode
before listening to the cd,
i'd've been prepared . . .

. . . as it is ~ i will stick with
the james taylor/natalie cole version . . .

. . . other than that . . .

. . . still tapping my toe to "deck the rooftop" . . .
{a glee-style mashup of "up on the housetop" and "deck the halls"}

. . . mr. schue and guest artist kd lang's
"you're a mean one mr. grinch"? love it . . .

. . . rachel's "o holy night"? respectable . . .
{even though her character is jewish. although that never stopped barbra, barry, or kenny g!}

. . . mercedes' gospel inspired rendition of
"angels we have heard on high"?
the girl has pipes . . .

. . . and finn, puck and artie's
"jingle bells" big band style?
yes, please . . .

OK you have just hit the top of my I love you list (which by the way you were already quite close to the top anyways)! I'm a glee-a-holic... I know its racy but I love the music. It's the only tv show I watch. I saw the very glee christmas episode and just have to have that album! In fact you just reminded me that I need to just download it already from amazon.

Anyways good news we have a date... my hunny will hopefully be here by 22 Dec and we have to report to Hickam AB on Oahu by 10 Jan 2011. So I'll be here for Christmas and hopefully on our way to Hawaii after that :)

I totally agree with about the Glee album. It rocks!! Never seen the show but the music is great.

you wouldn't have been prepared... we had to ff through the gay "baby its cold outside" a little too much...
