2. Advent

Time simply flies. Today’s the 2. Advent, well, by now it’s almost over.

The next few weeks I will be very busy with visiting my grandparents in Germany for a couple days, going to see the musical Avenue Q, doing Christmas shopping, finishing writing postcards, decorating the house, buying all the food for Christmas, getting the house in order and preparing myself for Christmas. And it’s only 14 days to go. Joy…

Meanwhile another one of my favourite Christmas songs is ‘Frosty the Snowman’:




Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal.
Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say,
He was made of snow but the children
Know how he came to life one day.
There must have been some magic in that
Old silk hat they found.
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around.
O, Frosty the snowman
Was alive as he could be,
And the children say he could laugh
And play just the same as you and me.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Over the hills of snow.

Frosty the snowman knew
The sun was hot that day,
So he said, “Let’s run and
We’ll have some fun
Now before I melt away.”
Down to the village,
With a broomstick in his hand,
Running here and there all
Around the square saying,
Catch me if you can.
He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop.
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler “Stop!”
For Frosty the snow man
Had to hurry on his way,
But he waved goodbye saying,
“Don’t you cry,
I’ll be back again some day.”
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Over the hills of snow.

    Hi, Cat – It’s still the weekend in my part of the world, so …

    Have a wonderful trip. Maybe you’ll share some photos?


  2. Cat says:

    Thanks, although it’s much more obligation and ‘having to go’ than wanting to. But if I’m lucky there should be loads of snow! :)


  3. ish says:

    Ah cat, I so envy you for AvenueQ. The internet is for Porn has made me insane. I’ve sent it to so many people I can’t even remember! Send some more of their songs when you’re not busy.

    And have a great time in Germany and shopping! :D


  4. Cat says:

    Yeah, it’s such an addictive song. I’ll send you the whole lot if you want? You got win rar so I can zip it up?


  5. ish says:

    Yea I do, send the entire thing. How will you send it though? Cause gmail doesn’t allow attachments that big.


  6. Cat says:

    I’ll have a look, probably going to send it in chunks.


  7. ish says:

    As you wish.


  8. Ashish says:

    Hopefully you won’t disappear again to return 3 months later. :P

    Have a good time and a great trip to Germany.

    Okay now do I get back on your Christmas list? No? Darn.

    I’ll have a look, probably going to send it in chunks.
    Upload it to some site like Box.net and then send him the url of your public box. :D


  9. Cat says:

    Or just email it? So much simpler.. Haven’t had time yet, Ish, will do at some point today, if not bug me about it. :)

    And thanks, won’t be great or enjoyable, but hey, hopefully there’s gonna be snow.


  10. Cat says:

    Oh and no, you’re still off my Christmas card list..


  11. ish says:

    Ooh, I love the snow! And don’t worry, you can send it whenever you find the time. I’m in no hurry. You could maybe also zip and upload it to fileurls(dot)com and send me the URL it gives you. But be sure to make the expiry date to 7 days when uploading otherwise. How big is it anyway?


  12. Cat says:

    ~90MB I believe. Sorry, my router’s been playign up again. I will send it to you soonish. :)
