Week 52

or maybe it’s 53, donno, no time to check, but here’s what I am doing.
Off to LA/San Diego for an entire 6 days. I am nervous with excitement, it’s hard packing! It’s our Christmas gift rolled into a yearly family vacation for us. Yayy. 
o, and the husband insisted I buy something for myself and like a true idiot when put on a spot and asked “what do you want?” – I give him the deer in headlights look, stared, fumbled, stuttered and threw my hands up in despair. Finally, the daughter chose me a gold sunburst pendant with a single diamond nestled within the sun. Later on in the evening, a choice family member drove in all the way from Michigan in ice, snow and freezing rain to show off her iphone and I kicked myself all the way back home lamenting “why didn’t I think of that?!”  
Such is life and gifts for me. I know, am hard to satisfy, and quite an ingrate by the looks of it!
The munchkin bursts into this song at unexpected moments to our sheer delight, as she shakes her head, rolls her eyes with drama and flourish, hands on hips as she wags a little finger at us, and checks each of us off, if we’ve been good! 
Just like she asks us, every few hours – I ask you? Have you been good? 😉 

You better watch out, you better not cry
Better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He’s making a list and checking it twice
Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake
Oh! You better watch out, you better not cry
Better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town  


on an interesting side note: This many folks have versions of the song!   
   Am sure everyone’s watched this before, but hey, works for another laugh?



Enjoy the cold, snow and the lights, toodles till the next year folks!

    L.A.? I’ll think of you when I pass through town on the way to the Bay Area. Wave if you see an SUV with desis.

    Bhima’s?!! Is that trip to Turkey doomed to remain a fantasy then? Sigh! Send me an e-mail and we’ll drown our sorrows in sambhar.

    Haven’t seen you in a while, but just wanted to wish you a Merry Xmas, and happy holidays. I see you go where the weather is nice… smart move! 😉

  4. LOL at the video – I had not seen it before, so I guess it was ‘new to me.’ 🙂

    Between s.b.’s version of that song posted on your comments earlier this week and this one, we now have two pretty funny versions.

    Have a fun trip and see you next year.

    As Christmas carols go, I’m particularly partial to Jingle Bells’ French flavour, Vive le vent. (Yes, we were singing this in a Christmas Eve party.)

    Never really liked the desi Twelve Days; always felt the humour there was rather superficial, and that it didn’t “flow” naturally. (Then again, so does most ABCD “humour”) Instead, I’d recommend an acapella version instead, for your carol-humour fix this year.

    Happy holidays to everyone, and safe trip to Rads. 🙂

    Cyd: That was awesome. Thank you! You really dig the group don’t ya? 😀
    Desi-desi bhai-bhai was the whole reason behind posting this version. Just honest to earth mocking at ourselves! 🙂

    KC: gee thanks, for rubbing it in! 😛 Birthday’s around the corner, am not sure if I should count on my luck, which never really comes through for me 😐

    Terri: Sorry, saw your comment quite late. Don’t even get me started on the Bhim boyz 😐

    Did you get an email now btw?
