Dear Santa Kat,

Major AwardI'm writing this letter to claim my major award from the captcha contest. I've been called a "funny guy" in the past (Mrs. Euphrony says it was done mockingly, but I think she's just jealous of my wit) and I'm glad that through shear volume I found some way of making you laugh and causing the stitches from your c-section to hurt. If the pictured item is not readily available, I will gladly claim the offered five free songs. While it could never match the "glow of electric sex" that this lamp would give, I will thoroughly enjoy the listening of them. Below is my list of song requests.

  1. Kate Rusby "The White Cockade"
    Beautiful voice, simply mesmerizing. My favorite song, which she does with her husband John McCusker on his album Yella Hoose, is "Night Visiting Song". Alas, iTunes is incomplete.
  2. Jason Gray "The Cut"
    I've been meaning to check out Jason Gray for a long time (since way before his name change to "Gray"). This is a good opportunity to do so. As a bonus, it features Sara Groves!
  3. Anúna "Siúil, A Rúin"
    Best known for their work with Riverdance, they've been around for longer than that. Great vocal artists.
  4. Gaelic Storm "The Beggarman"
    Best known as the "steerage band" in James Cameron's Titanic, this group puts some real energy into jigs and reels. Listen to their music and you can't help but tap your foot.
  5. Huey Lewis and the News "Do You Believe in Love"
    Just because.
Santa Kat, please bring me my major award soon. I've been a good Euphrony all year long, and I have even left a bowl of warm milk and some tuna on the back porch for you, just to say thanks. I'll be looking for your tiny Kat sleigh and eight tiny mice pulling it. Meow, meow, meow, Merry Captcha!

You really are quite funny for a scientist.

:-)

I'll send those songs to you tomorrow.

Never mind. I just sent them. I didn't know if I'd have time tonight, but I decided I could make you wait for your "major award."

I can't help but laugh every time I type the phrase "major award".

That is SUCH a hilarious movie.

Thanks, Santa Kat!

As of this morning, I have not seen them come through, but I'll keep looking.

Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment. Be nice, and it'll stay. Be mean, and it'll go.
