this is my favorite Christmas carol. I actually like the version by Tennessee Ernie Ford the best, but I couldn't find it anywhere. This is my second favorite version. I remember watching this on TV and thinking 'what the fuck'...?...But it's really pretty..
I would like to take this time to wish all of you the very very best in the coming year...George "Forest Gump" Bush is gone and we have a new leader ...So to all of you I say:TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIVES.... so don't fuck it up...love and kisses...jac

Merry Christmas dear. Even though I've never
"met" you, I'm so glad I know you and know that you're out there somewhere, raising hell. xoxo

Merry Christmas! Happy New Year and may we survive the last month of the Gump and his gang of pirates and other crooks.
May you receive lots of loot and of love. Whatever you do don't bip Santa thinking he' a burglar.

Merry Christmas to my Internet Mom. May all your bips be directed at others and the chalupas (or whatever you call them) are plentiful! Much love to you!

PS......I have a picture of me in the arms of Tennessee Ernie Ford. I loved him as a little kid and would go to a dance hall with my mom and dad in Monterey Park in Calif. where he would sing and call the square dances. Damn, I am old frickin old.

Of course we'll fuck it up. That's what humans do. O, well.

You really get nostalgic this time of year, hm?
