Last week I mentioned the great time we enjoyed over Thanksgiving instead of knuckling down and getting our Christmas cards and letters out.
On Tuesday evening, Mr. Cranium and I signed 480 “holiday” cards (before you gasp—we are self-employed). Rubbing our hands after we finished phase one, we decided to go for a drive and look at holiday lights.
My better half tuned the radio to the local Christmas music station. Right after Elvis’s Blue Christmas finished the bouncy beginning of Stop the Cavalry filled the car. Bobbing in my seat and singing with more gusto than I should. (The only way I can carry a tune is in a bucket.) I got to the refrain and sang the “dubba dubba dubb. . .”.
My husband laughed. “It sounds like that song from Shaun of the Dead. You know that zombie song.”
Here is Stop the Cavalry by The Cory Band:
Here is the Zombie Song from Shaun of the Dead:
Now imagine me singing without the bucket . . . . then again, maybe you shouldn’t. I’d hate to spoil your appetite.
By the way, the short stories are on hold until after the new year . . . I’m not mimicking a three sided candle this year and burning all the ends. 🙂
To those of you who have already sent me notes saying you haven’t received my Christmas letter yet, I know. My bad. It will be in the mail soon.
Hope your holiday season is filled with cheer and NO writer’s cramp.
