The Nutcracker’s Sweet

What’s your favorite Christmas song? I couldn’t answer that question myself. Too many favorites. One of those is that classic, “The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late),” by David Seville and his brilliantly talented harmonizers, Alvin and The Chipmunks. It drives San Geraldo crazy when I play that song. So, it surprised me yesterday when he forwarded the below YouTube video link to me. It’s members of the cast of “Glee” lip-synching to the Chipmunks. Why didn’t this make San Geraldo want to pull his hair out, too, I wonder.

Oh, now I get it. It’s those snappy, big red suspenders on “David Seville.” I’ll have to get myself a pair. (And I do still want a hula hoop.)

Saturday Market
After coffee at Café Manila this morning, San Geraldo and I walked over to Fuengirola’s Saturday [Flea] Market. The crowds (and fleas) very quickly got to San Geraldo. He lasted about 15 minutes and went home. I walked the entire fair grounds looking for something to buy. I didn’t find anything I couldn’t live without. I was, however, tempted…

THIS IS THE SWEET NUTCRACKER IN THE TITLE.
AND WHILE WE’RE ON THE SUBJECT… 24+ INCHES OF [PLASTIC] MANHOOD?
I USUALLY HATE THE GAME, BUT THIS ONE GOT MY ATTENTION.
ANTI-MONOPOLY, THE GAME OF THE 21ST-CENTURY ECONOMY.
THIS DISTURBING BRIDE MADE ME THINK OF MISS HAVISHAM.
A MUSICAL CLIMBING SANTA (PAPA NOEL).
MY FIRST TWO-TAILED MERMAN.  IT TURNS OUT IT’S NOT SO UNUSUAL.
BUT, FINALLY…  I NEED THIS LIKE I NEED A HOLE IN THE HEAD.
