XMAS: "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday"

SamuraiFrog's Essential Christmas Songs #37. Today was a weird day. I went to an eye care center (referred by a doctor) and had my pupils dilated. That's a new one for me. My pupils got HUGE and I couldn't focus my eyes anymore. I got a headache from all of the lights! I was there for a couple of hours, because they want to give you time to dilate before the examination, and the piped in music was all Christmas stuff, but Christmas rock music, and I heard some essentials, but not this one. There was actually a pretty lame cover of Slade's "Merry Xmas Everybody," and I wanted to include the original today, but it was actually SamuraiFrog's Essential Christmas Song #3, so here's the song it beat to the top of the charts in 1973.

Just to finish the story, my pupils finally went back to normal after about four hours. Went out to breakfast after and had a lot of coffee, but I have no idea if the caffeine helped work the eyedrops out of my system. Made me feel good, though. Incredibly cold today (5 degrees right now), but we also went to the laundromat. Now I feel sick and have a runny nose.

Also, the doctor said my eyes were in great shape. No damage.

Anyway, here's Wizzard.

Song of the Week: "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas"

SamuraiFrog's Essential Christmas Songs #36. It's the first snow of the year today, and it's a whopper: it's certainly not a blizzard, but we're gradually going to get about 4 inches today. My anxiety is cranked up. Snow is such a trigger for me. But here's some nice music. It's kind of cheesy today, but what the hey.
