Have A Very Silly Christmas
Again, I apologize for the lack of posts lately, it's been a busy month. But I did manage to upload a few Christmas songs to my server before running out of my apartment yesterday to catch a 6 am flight.
Now, I have way too much Christmas music for someone not named Santa (over 400 songs), but I've narrowed down a few non-Sufjan tracks that weren't on last year's Christmas post, so click on the link below and enjoy!
p.s. I'm still accepting gifts from my wishlist. =)
p.p.s. One of the coolest gifts SPD's received this year: being named by USA Today's Pop Candy as one of the Top Ten Blogs of 2006! (scroll down to picture caption) Thanks Whitney!!
