Wine makes for good posting

For those of you who don't know -- the creator of Calvin & Hobbes, Bill Waterson, is from Jose's hometown: Chagrin Falls. And, if anyone is struggling with gift ideas for him, consider getting him this.

Onto the music -- today felt especially Christmas-y due to the peaceful snowfall in our neck of the woods. As a result, we felt compelled to listen to Holiday music and share some unconventional favorites of ours:

Cheech and Chong - Santa Claus and His Old Lady Jose relates to this song b/c of the Latino in him. . .although, he is pretty white (especially in the winter!)

Soul Coughing - Suzy Snowflake Kelly thinks this sounds like Bloodhound Gang, but Jose INSISTS that it is Soul Coughing

No Doubt - Oi to the World Originally by the Vandals, but we prefer this version. . .and makes us both really hyper :)

Reindeer Section - When I Come Home For Christmas Melancholy and soothing, highly recommended
