We've had several calls and E-mails about the Christmas music playing in the stream today. Trust me, I really love holiday music, and even I wouldn't play it this early (actually, that's a lie. I thought about putting a CD on this morning, but didn't because I fear the stoning that would follow). Chris is on vacation, but Linda is on the case. We should be back to normal, fall music soon. Thanks to everyone who let us know!

Will it appear on the playlist for the day?
I've been out of it and missed out.

Did I goof?

Dunno - my local supermarket is stocing Christmas decorations and tree chocloates - my 3 year old went berserk!

For some reason, I always start thinking about honing up on the holiday songs in late July... maybe it has to do with the extreme summer South Texas heat or something, and my wishful thinking.
Actually saw the first lighted Christmas tree in a storefront today, and I found myself staring at it for a few moments with squinted eyes before I realized what it was. It looked vaguely familiar...

So, did you "repeat" them later in the day?

You know, you were a week early for Friday the 13th!!!

Maybe it's just another themed Friday..
First there was Theremin Friday, now Chritmas music Friday...what's on the plate for next week, I wonder??

Huw - what's a tree chocolate?

Tree chockies?!? Texas is too damn hot! They're foil wrapped hollow chololate decorations for the tree. awful stale air in them like Easter Egg air.
We actually stopped using them when the dogs pulled down the tree - then they opened all the presents in search of further goodies.
Isabelle knows a chocolate doodad when she sees one, how? She was barely concsious last year (though she did fight off the remote controlled dalek).

Did you find her beneath the toppled tree with the dogs, Huw?

I had a friend who used to hang her tree by the cut trunk from the ceiling in an attempt to ward off her overly curious cat. Looked pretty unusual with the tinsel and decorations hanging down the up way, but it was fairly effective.

Isabelle and I picked out an acid green 18" tinsel-plastic tree last year, it lives on a chest of drawers near the TV, and as the presents arrive it gets closer to the ceiling. All the dogs have passed on now, and we don't miss the turds with small children around. Miss the mayhem though, no remote controlled dalek would've got near Isabelle with the dogs around. I suspect tree chocolates would be as much of a temptation to Isabelle as they were to the dogs.
