I'm going to carry NaBloPoMo as far into December as momentum will take me. I promise that the next three weeks will be very boring. Today, for example, I am writing a paper.
I am also listening to Christmas music, because it is the 1st. Joel always tries to sneak them in before the 1st but I want to still be enjoying them by the 25th, so I'm pretty Nazi-riffic about it.
I always listen to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Christmas Eve/Sarajevo as my kick-off carol, because even though it's awful and hokey and super-lame, I love it unreservedly. It's like that song they pipe through the speakers when a sports team is taking the field/rink/court, it gets me all pumped up for the season. Plus, the video is exceedingly Soviet-Russia (in Soviet Russia, bells carol you!).
Embedding is disabled on that video, alas. So you'll have to click the link, crank your computer speakers, and rock out to some awesomely bad-ass Carol of the Bells. Do it.
