Thursday's Musical Interlude

There is no upper limit to the Muppet content of this blog, but this does approach the upper limit of awesome.

Now, I don't know if you Blogger folks have a shared source or something, but Furious had this same video up a couple of days ago. It's not a wonder, it really is awesome. I just love me that Animal.

By the way, my husband says hi. He says he's never fallen asleep in a dream, but he has dreamed that he has woken from his dream, but was actually still dreaming. I had to ask him, I never remember my dreams, likely because I only have two speeds (maximum overdrive and coma), while he regales me most mornings with his bizarre adventures with his unconscious.

Also, since I'm chatting anyway, who still thinks Global Warming is a myth? Are these the same people who think smoking makes one look cool? If you decide to start a protest against Christmas without snow, let me know, I'll carry a sign. My lawn is still growing too. I'm thinking about putting down some seed. My Christmas tree is outside (yes, I grow it) and if it's going to have grass beneath it, that grass might as well be lush.

Actually, S.L., I saw a few moments of this on CNN a couple of days ago and decided I had to have it for my own.

I've dreamed about waking up before too. It's very unnerving. I've also dreamed I woke up and tried to sit up but been unable to move. I usually struggle for a minute or so before thinking, "Oh, yeah, I'm still asleep and dreaming." That kind of thing turns your brain into a moebius strip.

I have a very active dream life. Before going to the Chinese Restaurant, I was in a martial arts class where, for reasons best left to dream logic, everyone spoke Spanish. Hablo una Espanol poquito.

It's a strange mind, but it's the only one I've got.

And last, in honor of your tree:
a seasonal tradition.

CNN. Well that explains it.

I think you must be on your way to the big time, Ulysses. This morning the whole family gathered around the computer to view your blog. As we came down for breakfast I asked my husband if he had been so amused by your video post that he decided to have Muppet hair today. He responded by telling me to pull it up for our son to see (I'm still not sure about the hair).

We then read your comment and were highly amused by the Spanish in your martial arts class. We use Japanese in our class, but I guess our sensei is a traditionalist.

Finally, we came to Bing. You cannot know how much I love Bing Crosby. I am such a sentimental sap. Thanks, Ulysses. My tree is now ever so fond of you.

Hmm. According to Weird Universe, the muppet video has had over 3 million hits in 3 days.

They also have a link to Beaker doing "Ode to Joy," which I've seen but have been saving for a special occasion.

I'm not sure I'd know the big time if it fell on me. So I bow to your superior observational skills.

Bing is a holiday must, and White Christmas will doubtless survive both of us just as it has survived its writer and most famous singer.
