Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat.

Please put a penny in the old man's hat.
If you don't have a penny,
half a penny will do.
If you don't have a half a penny,
God bless you!

I don't know, don't. It just popped into my head.

Five Random Facts!

1.) It's Picture Saturday! And I've even got stuff for it! *snort* I've had this song stuck in my head all week, so... I had to get it out of my system somehow.

So I drew this before dinner. 
That one middle verse makes me all teary.

I've taken to doing not-so-very-awesome fan art when I have time on my hands. It's not even art. It's more like fan-doodles, and I am a little awkward about them.

 Special thanks to Bella for getting her blood jam in the corner. 
Very nice indeed. 
(click if you're wanting to read the words. Blogger's having issues tonight.)    

 2.) We watched The Desolation of Smaug with a friend last week. It was really, really good! Overall I really loved it. A couple things bothered me but that's to be understood. Mostly I was going:

 KILI AND FILI! I love you guys!
 (They were like... the Winchesters of Middle Earth.)

Kili should not be so cute. 


BARD! Cooooooool. 

 And then boring things like, "What the heck is Tauriel doing there? Oh. She's just there to be a love interest.

Legolas was funny. He just cracked me up even when he was being serious. They did something funny to his eyes. They looked better in LOTR.

Lord of the Rings:

Le Hobbit
(note to make-up artist: Maybe.. less guy-liner next time.)

3.) We watched the Donny and Marie Christmas today... I find it to be very funny and kind of sweet. And okay. A little lame. But it's mostly funny and sweet!

 4.) My family's basically the choir at church, so we're learning a new sung Mass for Christmas. The Gloria is a killer...  (yeah. We're still learning it. We work best under pressure. lol!)

5.) This is me. This is me so much.

Especially when it comes to my boyz. lol.
And Kili. 

     .... I'm not excited at all.

Cheers and God bless, and Merry Christmas!



  1. "Little less guy-liner." Cracked me up. :) Can you actually read that music? That is so weird. It's like... not normal music. (Okay, that sounded dumb.) Is it like reading "normal" sheet music, or is it a lot different? Sorry. Over curious music geek.

    1. Hehe. I'm glad. lol.

      Yeah, I can read it. It's pretty simple once you figure it out. And no... it's not normal, you are correct. It's Gregorian Chant, so it's a little bit different. Mostly it's the same, but.. like.. it doesn't have whole notes. If you're supposed to hold the note, you put two little-- I guess you can call them quarter notes-- together, like a tie.

      In some ways it's actually a lot simpler than reading normal music, because it has fewer *rules*. (but then again, sometimes rules really kind of are nice.) XD

      No worries! I'm glad you're interested. :)

  2. That little song has been stuck in my head too! My mom used to sing it at Christmas time, except she would say hay penny instead of half penny. So when I saw this post, I was like "hey! It's that song!" :)


    1. Aw that's so cool! We heard it when the Clancy Brothers did it at their concert. It's very addictive. lol.


  3. The second pic of legolas looks creepy. i like the makeup he had on LOTR best.

    Merry Christmas my friend!! God bless youa nd your family always. ❤️

    1. Oh yes, Indeedy. LOL.

      MERRY CHRISTMAS, Hilda, dear. :D And God bless you and yours as well. Cheerio!

    2. Thank you so much!! ❤️
