Gotta love Kermit, Miss Piggy, the Swedish Chef, and Beaker

"Mee MEEmee MEEE-mee" = Beaker singing the "Nine ladies dancing" stanza of "The Twelve Days of Christmas"

Ah yes, the immortal words of Muppets... heh-heh.

One of my favorite Christmas albums from childhood is John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together. Kermit is there in all his sincere, well-meaning green-frogness. Miss Piggy is her bossy diva self (gee, remind you of anyone?). Animal protests his "won't go! won't go!" unless figgy (not "piggy") pudding is produced forthwith. The two grumpy guys are...well, grumpy. Everyone is there; and they chime in happily on "Deck the Halls," "The Twelve Days of Christmas," and "Christmas Is Coming." The Muppets do a sweet-spirited performance of "Stille Nacht," in German, after which John tells the story behind the beloved carol. Then the entire group sings the song in English.

The only thing missing from the album is a good solo by the Swedish Chef warbling some buried treasure of a European Christmas carol that only Swedes would recognize. I'm not sure how he could top his "hurdy-gurdy, get duh squirrelee"* act or his unique rendition of "Blue Danube Waltz" (ie. "Da, da, da, DA, BORK, BORK, bork, bork"), but the Chef would be up to the challenge.

* Yep, everything...somehow relates back to squirrels.

Midnight oil burned? Check.

Marathon copy editing. Gotta love it. I didn't think I could do it tonight. Nose to the grindstone actually worked this time. Amazing how time expands when one focuses on the task at hand, rather than counting the divets in the ceiling tiles. Hmm, have I uncovered a new aspect of the time-space continuum? Neh... It was a God thing. Truly.

So...though I have a second wind and though Mark Bray beat me to posting about LW&W (and elicited an interesting mental rambling this morning [well, it was interesting to ME!]), I shall refrain from posting any further tonight.

I know.
You don't care.
And you think my nose is buried too far in my navel anyway.
Well...
whatever...
I don't blog for anyone but me...and my eight readers.
;o)

Anyhooz, several movie reviews in the works, stuff about bad fashion or some such fluff, and goodies about Christmas...to be posted this week.

Love to all my loyal fans! Polka-dotted scarf waves to ya. :o)
