NEW YEARS DAY 2015 WhooWeeee! What do you say we get this party started or if you’re like me; let’s finish up the party from last night.
Before we go a whole lot farther let me give you the top ten or so reasons why my BOTB post is late today.
I’ve had house guests since 12/24 (family)
We’ve been having fun, mostly (too much)
II burned my hand rather badly on 12/30 (dumb blonde here AND a major klutz)
Went out and partied last night (hey, I live in Nevada. These towns never sleep)
I’m a major procrastinator on my best days (chose the song a while ago, but didn’t look for competitors)
Had a Margarita at 1:30 AM (only one, but I’ve been on an autoimmune protocol diet for six months – meaning no alcohol, caffeine, or sugar)
Came home and popped a bottle of champagne at 2:30 AM (SEE ABOVE)
I just woke up and promised the family breakfast (I don’t usually have people to cook for, so I’ve been having fun with that also)
If I keep going I would just be making things up, but all of the above are true. /typing is painful and tedious, so let’s get on with it.
Today’s song is one that was played a lot with the Christmas tunes, but I don’t really think of it as a ‘Christmas Song’, so I’m using it for January 1, besides it’s 3 degrees outside this morning.
This is a tune written by Irving Berlin. I’m not up for a lot of yak about it this morning, so maybe I’ll tell you more in my results post (or maybe not; we’ll see). It has been covered A LOT, but to keep it simple I’ve selected two instrumental versions.
And the challenger is
Now it’s your turn. Leave me a comment with your vote and tell me why. I don’t even care if you go on for pages and pages with your analysis, or if you want to do your own Bullet Point comment, but for heaven’s sake vote.
After you’ve finished up here. Go on over to MR. BOTB himself (I’m sure my calling him THAT will insult someone, but what the hell, let’s start the year off right, shall we?) Stephen will give you a list of all the BOTB participants. Please try to visit everyone. I’ll be back on the 7th with my vote and the results of this BATTLE. See ya then, or maybe even before – ya never know for sure with me.
