On a lighter note...

I have the following song inexplicably stuck in my head. But in my head, it's being sung by Amy Sedaris (tattletale is, sadly, recently dead at the age of 7. She now lives in an urn and goes by the name "Ashley"... don't ask me how I know this...)

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas,
Only a hippopotamus will do.
Don't want a doll, no dinkey tinker toys
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy.

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas,
I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He won't have to use, a dirty chimney flue,
Just bring him through the front door,
That's the easy thing to do!

I can see me now on Christmas morning
Creeping down the stairs.
Oh what joy and what surprise
When I open up my eyes
To see a hippo standing there.

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinoceruses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too...

Mom says a hippo would eat me up, but then,
Teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian!


There's lots of room for him in our two-car garage,
I'd feed him there and wash him there
And give him his massage!

I can see me now on Christmas morning
Creeping down the stairs.
Oh what joy and what surprise
When I open up my eyes
To see a hippo standing there.
