One of the things that I really love about YouTube is that you can find just about any and everything that you could image looking for. As much as I am not into Christmas music, considering I hear so much of it at the mall on the nights that I work at the kiosk during the holiday season for the past couple of years,
I did enjoy this version of “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Jimmy Fallan, Mariah Carey and The Roots. It managed to find itself on to YouTube pretty darned quick, that is one of the reasons why I like YouTube.
As I’ve said before, one of the things that I don’t like about YouTube is that these wonderful videos can and do disappear, more often than not at some point. Some songs I have spent a good amount of time locating just the right version with the best audio possible and gone to listen to it and Badda Boom, Badda Bing it is forever gone! Man that just burns me up.
I’ve gone back to re read some of my previous post that had an YouTube video embedded in it and all there is now is an empty black box, which I’m sure Google doesn’t much care for and I’m probably being penalized for when they do their quarterly ranking sweeps. I’m guessing I should delete the whole post but I really hate doing that.
One thing everyone knows about me is that I love to attend the Mardi Gras festival every year. It’s always a wild time and it’s as fun as anything I’ve ever done. Each time I go, I like to dress up. It’s half the fun of going. Luckily, this year I found a cool site that has the supplies I need to make my trip complete. They have a wide selection of items to choose from.
This year I plan to attend the festival again and will dress up as well. I purchased one of the Mardi Gras Masks that was available from the site. I think it looks great and I can’t wait to try it out. I’m sure I’ll be in the thick of the party and be the envy of all who see me.
Hopefully I will be able to use this mask again at another party that we sometimes dress up for. I can’t wait to use the laser party lights that I bought a few months ago. I haven’t held a “theme party” in a long time. I think I am long over due!
There was an email in my email inbox confirming that order for the Agogo Bells was indeed processed and ready to head out my way this morning. I am not the most patient person in the world so I do appreciate all that the Internet brings to us almost instantly. I can’t image ordering anything that I couldn’t check up and/or track online. We are the generation of instant gratification indeed!
I’ll feel a lot better once it is here and I know that it has arrived in time for the party next week! There are going to be a good amount of friends and family there that I haven’t seen since last Christmas. I sure hope everyone is on their best behavior and that no drama starts up between anyone, but that hasn’t always been the case these past couple of years. But that is a whole other can of worms that I don’t want to open up right now.
Drinking coffee is relatively new to me. I have always been a tea drinker. But I kept being handed different types of coffee drinks at work that people would buy for everyone and eventually I started getting used to the taste, since I just couldn’t throw it away and they kept insisting to at least give it a try. I still enjoy my hot cup of tea first thing in the morning and the one that I have right after dinner. But throughout the day I do enjoy a cup of coffee now and then and co-workers are still coming in with new coffee based drinks that are on sale or are some type of holiday special, which is fun!
The coffee that is always available in the break room is this best decaf coffee that I’ve tried so far. It is Seattle’s Best Blend Decaf Coffee that they order online.
I do try and drink as much decaf coffee and my tea as well, so it doesn’t make me too wired up and we all know that caffeine is not good for you in the long run. I don’t think caffeine affects me like it does so many other people. I really can live with or with out it.
There are Hot Deals a plenty going on right now at Musician’s Friend’s website. Now is the perfect time to start seriously looking at great deals online much like the awesome deal on fender rumble bass combo amp. Unbelievable that in just over two months we will be running around like crazy people trying to take care of all the things that we deem necessary in order to make the summer season a success.
Coming from such a musical inclined family I usually try and find musical related items on all of the gift giving holidays that never stop arriving.
These days I am not going to use any of my credit cards. Last year at Christmas time I almost made it by only using cash, but three days before the “big” day I had to use my VISA for just a few things that I couldn’t manage to live without. I hope that I can truly make it this year.
