Such Spirit Through the Year

Hey, what do you know? I'm finally doing the Saturday Scavenger hunt today. Mrs. Big Hairy Woman of The Northern Sky Chronicles blog, chose the word merry this week.

So, what's merrier (more merry?) than Santa conducting a tuba orchestra with a candy cane playing Christmas music? Uh, I can't think of much. These guys played during my lunch. It was great, but it was super cold outside yesterday, so I stayed long enough to hear them play the Chipmunks song and one other, before I had to go back inside.

Last night made me pretty damn merry too. I stayed home with Coadster and watched movies all night. It was just what the doctor ordered.

Tonight my girl crush is supposed to breeze into town and I'm thinking I'll stop by the What a Load of Craft thingy at The Picador. They have craft death matches and it's always fun to watch heavily tattooed people try to out-knit each other or glue more shit on a wreath in a designated time. Come to think of it, it's downright merry.

I'm going to agree that there is nothing much more merry than a tuba band led by a Santa. That is pretty darn merry.
I think that craft thing sounds like so much fun and I am not even a very crafty person.

I always thought it would be painful to play a brass instrument in the cold. Can your mouth freeze to it?

Santa's tuba band and tattooed crafters all in the same weekend?
And you say you're not eclectic.
Go figure.

And oh my god I LOVE the tuba santa orchestra. That is just about the merriest thing ever.
