Some FaceBook Nonsense--Or Not?
A while back someone whom I know expressed the following on FaceBook:
Hating so many things allows me to be passionate about the things I actually love.
Knowing what I know about this person, I was not particularly impressed by this thought. In fact, I was dismayed, though not very surprised. However, I have mixed feelings about this statement. I see a perverse sort of truth to it while at the same time seeing an outright arrogance and selfishness to the statement. I've never heard this before, but maybe there is an origin to it other than the mind of the person who said it on FaceBook.
What do you think about this quote? Have you heard it anywhere before?
Battle of the Band Results:
Santa Claus Is Coming to Town
This Battle was another crazy back and forth race to the finish. I enjoyed the Cimorelli Sisters, but my favorite version remains the energetic piano playing of Jo Ann Castle. Surprising to me, this means no clear winner. I really thought that Jo Ann Castle would have this win in the bag, but I guess Santa's bag is so full of toys that there was no room for a winner.
With my vote added in, the contest is a tie.
Jo Ann Castle 12 votes
Cimorelli 12 votes
Oh, and the JC was of course the one whose birthday we celebrate this week. But you knew that didn't you.
Have a Merry Christmas and enjoy your holiday.
I'll be back on the blog on January 1st with another Battle of the Bands. This next one will be a quirky post-Christmas Battle with a song that is not thought of as a Christmas song, but I'll tie it into a Christmas related theme. I'll try to make it a fun post to start off the New Year.
What in the world kind of song will I be using? (hint: It will have something to do with what I got for Christmas.) What would you prefer to get this Christmas--presents or presence? Is there anything under your tree yet or do you even have a tree?
