BABY IT’S COLD OUTSIDE

I adore this song, especially the version by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordan, but this version by Zach and Donald from Scrubs is festive and a little bit awesome too.

♡ Happy Boxing Day | December 26

BOXING DAY | DECEMBER 26

If you’re from a Commonwealth country, like England or Australia or Canada, you will know what Boxing Day is. December 26 is Boxing Day, which is our equivalent of Black Friday (crazy sales and lineups). It is also my birthday, thankyouverymuch. I don’t go shopping on Boxing Day amid all the fervour and the seething savages looking for a big deal. It’s some peoples’ happy place, but not mine. So for those who love it, happy shopping! Go get ’em!

IF YOU WERE  BORN ON DECEMBER 26 (LIKE ME!)…

You are a very determined and ambitious person. Restlessness can be your downfall, as you can be very frustrating and even mischievous if you don’t have something to focus on! At times you can be defensive and rigid, but for the most part, you are an enjoyable person who loves a good competition and a healthy adventure. Realistic and practical, others often turn to you for solid advice. Many actually lean on you, as you radiate strength.

HAP-I KOO-LEE-SOO-MAHS

Yes, I am Japanese. Actually, I am Nikkei (Japanese born outside of Japan), born and raised in Canada, so I’m afraid I do not possess the Sony Playstation commercial’s voiceover voice (“Pu-lay-stay-shon”). I am not horribly offended by this series of movie synopsis by a Japanese girl.

I lived in Tokyo for many years as an adult, and I’m serious when I say this is how my people speak English. This is how my parents speak English…well, my mother’s accent is barely there anymore since she’s been in Canada for over 30 years now.

It’s the holiday season so I’m a happy camper, and this little video made me smile. Enjoy!
