Okay, SkiRough left a comment complaining about the need for a new song. Well, maybe it was a gentle reminder that a song of the day might get played out after a week or two. And perhaps she made a comment about how appropriate the song was given my prior post. That's somehow less antagonistic and post-worthy.

So, it was off to get a new video for Christmas. Of course, that's also a good opportunity to visit a few of the daily-read type blogs. A short click away and I find, to my horror, that my song of choice is already on another blog. That blog's owner threatened me with bodily harm if I were to copy her by using Christmas Canon by Trans-Siberian Orchestra. And we all know that you don't mess with this Athena. Or call her an Amazon. Oh yeah, the bodily harm part might be a bit of an exaggeration. She may have said something more along the lines of, "Hey, it's a free song, go ahead and use it, too." I can't remember, exactly, and reading the e-mail would take WAY too much effort. I know, because I had to read it to get a feel for what she did say.

That left me little recourse but to pull out a recent favorite. I know how annoying it can be to switch from one radio station to the next only to hear the exact same song.

Hopefully, this will earn me the good graces of both Ski and Nytro. It's not good to go into the Christmas season with people trying to convince Santa you are evil and shouldn't even rate a lump of coal. Nytro might be inclined to hand out lumps, but they don't come from a hole in the ground.

something tells me that your post and greyhound's post did not just conveniently and randomly occur in the same week. there's something going on here, and i'm going to get to the bottom of it. just as soon as i finish cleaning up the house. you'll be hearing from me sometime next year. count on it. well, at the very latest valentine's day.

merry christmas, pol. i don't hand out lumps of coal to my friends... and you may be surprised that you fall into the category. i know, i know... nytro's getting soft in her old age. soft and FAT. i gotta hit the gym. i'm outta here.

Merry Christmas, Mr. Pol!

You should have heard what she said that didn't make the e-mail. Alright, I'll come clean, I have no idea what e-mail you are talking about. I'm sensing a trend. Which brings me to my next order of business.

I would like to give a speach regarding the contest results. However, since I have no idea what is going on with anything (school included), I don't know who to thank. So, I will just thank the Pol clan for the sexy swag.

I'm off to try and figure out just what the hell is going on around me. It seems as though our couch smells like cat pee, but I have no idea how that might have happened. Later
Benny (utterly confused)

P.S. Did you know I had a cat?

Christmas songs are over-rated. :)

Have a blessed Christmas!

heehee :) The first thing when I logged in to your blog today going through my head was "hey! he changed my song! I hope he didn't take my gentle ribbing to heart!" then I scroll down and see you calling me out :) haha. Great choice, Pol!
