You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch // Thurl Ravenscroft

I just bought a bunch of Christmas music on Amazon - got 100 classics for $0.99 and 100 pop for $5. I had decided I was going to force myself into the spirit, listening to this lot while I put the lights on the tree I bought yesterday. Mission is to have that done when the kids get home from school so they can put the ornaments on.

While I was waiting for the downloads, I saw some reference to a popularity contest that’s going on somewhere around these parts. Mercifully, that shit almost always seems to happen one step beyond my borders. But I was curious, so I googled, and found it.

And now I want to go back to bed and stay there for three days.

Fucking humbug, man.
