I am a grinch of music

That does it!!!!

If I hear "Little Drummer Boy" once more I shall scream, and I don't mean that in a rhetorical, ironic or otherwise over used cliche sense.

The song its self is fine - all gifts that we have are important, little things can bring even more joy than big thngs (much of the time, anyway... still waiting to find out how happy that that diamond tennis bracelet might make me) and "rum pum pum pum" is probaby more scintillating as lyrics go for the folks who get stuck with the harmony.

The problem is that it's been recorded by everyone and their Uncle Fred.

Have I heard "All I Want For Christrmas is You" yet? Of course not. It's all "rum pum pum pum." One Mariah Carey moment as I grade papers, is that too much to ask?

You know, it's getting to the point where every X-Mas song has been recorded by a thousand different artists. I didn't know there were like 50 different versions of "Jingle Bell Rock" until my wife turned on the Christmas music channel from our cable television system.

The Little Drummer Boy is a reigning favorite in our household -- AJ makes everyone be quiet when it comes on the radio. Mariah Carey, on the other hand, is on the radio all the time and makes me want to poke out my eardrums, no offense. I'm on a Diana Krall kick at the moment. Happy Grading!
