Small random stuff or NaBloPoMo Day Five

-Andy Rooney, journalist and essayist, best known for his curmudgeonly, but wry observations on the long runner, "60 Minutes" died yesterday. The clips remind us what a great loss his unique perspective was. It was funny that they aired the segment where he was adamant about not taming his eyebrows. I observed when I saw it earlier in the day that they reminded me of the Grinch's eyebrows. When puzzling why they were airing "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" on now, just a few days after Halloween on ABC Family tonight, I did put forth that they may have been airing it as a tribute to our favorite kindly Grinch on "60 Minutes," Andy Rooney. Me just supposin again...

-Extremely tired and feverish so I've done minimal writing and blogging and lots of listening to music. I add to my eMusic stores some songs I thought about, but had not tried to find such as the song listed above. I also added titles like God Only Knows by the Beach Boys, Johnny and Mary by Robert Palmer, I Didn't Mean to Turn You On-both the Robert Palmer and the original Cherrelle versions, Still In Love by Troop, When the Rose Is Sown by Big Country, and Do You Wanna Get Funky by C+C Music Factory.

-I actually livetweeted "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" under the hashtag #howthegrinchstolexmas and part of The Wizard of Oz under #wizardofoz. The loudest laughes in the household came from me observing that the scenes in Munchkinland played as if it was Law and Order: Special Witches Unit and my pointing out the "Bawstin accented" words of Ray Bolger (Scarecrow-grew up in Dorchester) and Jack Haley (Tin Man-grew up in Boston, possibly Southie). With the references to Law and Order, it would make my day if when I continue livetweeting tomorrow I find a clever way to link Chris Meloni (Law and Order SVU) and Kathryn Erbe (Law and Order Criminal Intent) to the Wizard of Oz since they were both involved in Oz at some point.

Oh priorities...

Never forget:

"There is never enough time to do or say all the things that we would wish. The thing is to try to do as much as you can in the time that you have. Remember Scrooge, time is short, and suddenly, you're not here any more." -The Ghost of Christmas
