A Blue but Merry Christmas. And an alien.

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me... blues.

Great!  But we can't leave it at that.  How about some soulful blues from Ray Charles?

Oh my god, yeah.  Get Albert King in here to add some good lovin' blues and now we're talkin!

Now all you have to do is take me to New Orleans...

Oh, one more thing.  You are a football fan, I'm not, but I understand that the Super Bowl must exist, I guess.  So if it must-- then why not the Saints there?  Every year.   

A very happy, peaceful and loving holiday, whatever your mood or persuasion.  Whether you worship Cthulhu, Jesus or Santa or no one.
