Show Me the Money!

Oops. I don’t have any money to give away in honor of your week-long Christmas music comment-a-thon, Dear Reader. But……….

I do have some Christmas music!

And the winner of a CD or download (winner’s choice) of Pink Martini‘s Joy to the World is…………..

Robert Johnson at The Quotidian Hudson! Congratulations, Robert. I hope this selection will not offend your musical sensibilities.

The winner of a CD or download (winner’s choice) of Elton John’s Christmas Party is……………

Angie Mizzell at AngieMizzell.com! Now, you can persecute Shawn with It Doesn’t Often Snow at Christmas all year long!

Both winners will also receive a small sampling of Cootchie Hooch, our home-brewed arancello. It will be ready to drink on or after Valentine’s Day (because, you know, we MUST start talking about Valentine’s Day the day after Christmas.)

Thanks to everyone who shared a story last week. This is a series I will enjoy reading over and over again, because your taste, choices and enthusiasm made the experience for me.

I wish you a quiet, peaceful last week of 2011. Thank you for reading this little blog and for contributing to a community that enriches my life.

    • But I won you as a friend. :) I hope you got the gadgets you wanted for Christmas, along with train gear.

      December 26, 2011
      • Yes, knowing you is prize enough! I got lots of cool stuff for Christmas – trains, books, artwork, alcohol, pickles…. all the best stuff in life. :)

      • Knowing people like you makes my life whole, Carnell. MTM and I were just sitting here talking about friendship. I am glad you are my friend.

        December 26, 2011
      • You two are sweet, thank you. I don’t know what I would do without the two of you! You both fit into my life like puzzle pieces I never even knew were missing.

  2. Ir was a fun week seeing all the Christmas songs and some interesting non traditional ones. Of course, we knew how wacky some folks are and this just served as confirmation. I won’t mention any names, of course, as that may be considered somewhat rude. Howevvvah….you may look around this post in the neighborhood of North and find some apparition of said “wackodoodle”.

    And now, to honor those wackos, we present:

    • I enjoyed many of your contributions, Lou. I was amazed that your name didn’t come out of the bag, because you certainly had more in there than anyone else.

      December 26, 2011
      • Just happy for Robert & Angie, I have all I need with the lovely Miss TK.
        That should win me a few points, huh.

        December 26, 2011
      • Huh. ;)

        December 26, 2011
  3. “Wacko” — straight man — crazy ladies — All who read and enjoy the commentary and friendship here are all winners and richer for the experience. :) Thanks, Andra!

    Oh, by the way, I have one leftover from last week — not sure how I overlooked this group that has its roots here in Indiana: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7E-47VmFopE Enjoy!

      These guys are hilarious, Karen.

      December 26, 2011
    • I enjoyed this series very much, and this contribution is the perfect celebration of it, Karen.

      December 26, 2011
  4. Just loved this series, Andra, and you couldn’t have chosen better recipients than Robert and Angle. One of the great advantages of the collective you have organised is that I have met these two wonderful bloggers, both with such wonderful takes on life.

    Have a wonderful break, and thank you again.

    • Their names came out of the sack. I wish everyone could win.

      December 26, 2011
    • Thank you, Kate! It’s been a pleasure getting to know you through your writing, too…

      Andra, I did a drawing last week and I felt the same way. But I’m so glad to be one of the lucky winners. As I mentioned in my email last night, I’m still dealing with a bit of behind the times technology, so I’d love a CD. I can collect that and my Cootchie Hooch and the casserole dish I left at your house (heh) soon. It will give me an excuse to see you.

      December 27, 2011
  5. Congrats to Annie and Robert! *sniff* And, Merry Xmas to all.

    December 26, 2011
  6. Thanks for hosting this bloggity Christmas gathering on the interwebs. ‘Twas fun!

    December 26, 2011
    • The comments made it so. Thanks for so many awesome contributions.

      December 26, 2011
  7. This was a a Christmas series I really looked forward to reading. I got a HUGE kick out of seeing everybody else’s choices and looking at what a wide variety of music that I consider real music there is out there (I’m a total musical snob)

    December 26, 2011
    • I even found a few I hadn’t heard before, and you reminded me of a couple I’d forgotten.

      December 26, 2011
  8. Perfect graphics and picks to end the series! Enjoy a “pause” before marching forward to greet 2012!

    December 26, 2011
  9. I would like to Wish you Happy Christmas and wonderful years ahead :)

    December 26, 2011
    • Thank you, Zahir! I am enjoying getting to know you through your blog. Happy Boxing Day and a most excellent 2012 to you.

      December 26, 2011
  10. o/\o

    Thanks! It was great fun. (and not to worry – very few things insult my musical tastes…and from what I just heard sounds like a cross between The Chieftains, Esquival and Arabian/Eastern with a little Dinah Shore thrown in…)

    Hope you and MTM are feeling better. Best to all!

    December 26, 2011
    • Congratulations, and thanks for contributing such fun songs last week. Don’t listen to Lou. :)

      December 26, 2011
      • Lou? I figured he was pointing to a reader in Philly what with the Rocky theme and all…
        However, I’ll take wacky. Abigail tells me I’m crazy all the time so wacky is a step towards normal. I guess the treatment is working?
        I had a great time playing along. I can take my music whichever way is easiest for y’all ;) to deliver…

        December 27, 2011
      • I will email you to get your address. I have to mail the hooch regardless.

        December 27, 2011
  11. Darn…I thought when Andra said she was giving away the Elton John CD, she meant she was giving away HER copy. Congrats to the winners, anyway

    December 26, 2011
    • BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

      December 26, 2011
      • Hahahaha! So it seems I get to put Shawn through the same misery? I love it.

        December 27, 2011
      • Just wait – and some point during her stars rise, Lady Gaga will put out a Christmas album. Civilization as we know it is doomed. Maybe Gaga and Sir Elton will do a Christmas duet, just like Bing Crosby and David Bowie.

        December 27, 2011
      • A Lady Gaga Christmas CD could be quite, um, interesting? Scary? Twisted?

        December 27, 2011
    • @Carnell – Gaga and Elton did a great duet at the Grammy’s two years ago. I guess you missed her Christmas Special on ABC this year? Just a good Italian Catholic girl from NYC.

      The album is coming once she cools down a bit.

      December 27, 2011
  12. Awwww, so lovely. Congratulations Robert and Angie. Karen’s right – we’re all winners. :)

    December 27, 2011
    • I hope you enjoyed Christmas with your kids, Lori. I enjoyed looking at the photos you posted.
