On the twelfth day of Christmas, a song from John Berry. That voice. This song. Every year. Every. Year.

It’s simply THE SONG I have to hear on Christmas day.

Merry Christmas, friends! May you always remember the best moments of life and love today.

Oh, on the eleventh day of Christmas, Tim Minchin sings to thee…

This song does me in every time. I listen to it on repeat because there are smiles, a laugh or two, and there are tears. Tears for what once was, what is, what might be, and what is. It’s an EVERYTHING song to me.

Bless you, Tim. Bless you and your humanist heart. You really know how to get to me.

Last year, I encouraged you to get his album Apart Together. If you didn’t, do yourself a favor and get it now. It’s a work of art and has been in heavy rotation throughout this past year for me. I truly believe Tim Minchin is one of the greatest composers of our lifetimes. Not only has he written beautiful music for the stage (Broadway, the West End, etc.), he’s funny and deeply rooted in crafting songs that speak to the soul of us all. He gets it. And he shares it with us, even when so many of us feel we’re not into “that kind” of music. Friends, he writes about us, for us, and it’s most definitely the kind of music we need in our lives.

On the tenth day of Christmas, Justin Hines brings a smile to my face.

I know, I know. It’s the same every year. But it’s the same every year for a reason! I’ll always include him and his songs. I. Just. Will.

On the ninth day of Christmas, a song from Brenda Lee!

She was 13 years old, y’all. 13. THIRTEEN! I don’t know about you, but I don’t think most 13 year olds could pull this off. But she did.

On the eighth day of Christmas, I think we could all use a little something different, don’t you?

Well, here’s something different!

On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love — me — gave to…me…I gave this to me:

A punk pop song to get my blood pumpin’ and get me out of bed.

On the 5th Day of Christmas, what do you want to see?

How about something a little cultural?

I think my favorite is the spiderwebs. Which do you like?

No tweaking to the color whatsoever. That’s just what God served up and what my phone actually FINALLY got right for a change.

2021 – Day 181

Da Goddess @ 03:48

Tomorrow will mark the halfway point of the year. It’ll also be one day closer to Mom leaving us.

I can’t do anything to stop the inevitable, however I am sure as hell going to be with Mom as much as possible.

Juggling has never been my strong suit. Okay! Fine! I’ve never successfully juggled more than two balls for more than a few passes. Yet, when it comes to my family and my personal shit, I’m juggling the fuck out of a lot of things. I’m also slowly losing my mind. Guess as I get older, there’s much more shit to stuff in a sock.

The point of all this is…completely lost to me. I don’t even recall what I originally intended.

See? Losing my mind.

If seen, approach with extreme caution as it has been known to be exceedingly sarcastic, caustic, barbed, and considered “a loose canon and could go off at any time.”

Alas, I have no control over anything any more.

Adrift. Asea. In the weeds, as they say. Why, yes, captain of this faulty noggin, I’m staring at you.

2021 – Day 161

Da Goddess @ 00:08

My friend’s dog meows.

Yep.

Her dog meows like a cat. I heard it with my own two ears. Upon hearing it yesterday, I immediately enquired about the meow. I asked because I know for a fact that her wife is allergic to cats, so I knew it was likely just some loud neighbor kitty visiting at the door or something. “No cat. That was Molly. She’s really weird now.” I’ll say! When I dog sat for them years ago, Mol did NOT meow. She barked. Like your normal, average, everyday, common, garden variety dog.

That is no longer the case. This previously regular doglike dog is now a badass who sounds like a motherfucking cat.

And that’s pretty cool. I’ve demanded video so we can make her go viral and let her become a big doglebrity. I’m only asking 10% of her earnings. I’m not greedy. There’ll be plenty of cheddar to go around.

Anyone else have an animal capable of subverting societal expectations? I’m thinking we could have ourselves a pretty major double, triple bill for events.

Tell me what your animal does so I can work it into act.
