I've just made my first (significant) uploads to YouTube: our concert at Conterpoint this past July. I'm medium-pleased with it; I was off-key a bit, a couple of times, but the audience reaction was good.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Like in my great-grandfather's days
Through blizzards howlin',
To school they crawled, twen-
Ty miles, uphill both the ways...

What if God was one of us?
Met a stranger on the bus
Planned to kill the other's spouse
Hitchcock and Bergman could direct
It would be awesome I expect

I woke up this morning with the Tallis Canon running through my head, over and over.

Sort of.

  Come to me, my God, this night
  With all the blessings of the light
  I wish I may, I wish I might
  Have the wish I wish tonight

Is there a term for being earwormed by lyrics you know are wrong?  Apart from mondegreens and filks/contrefaits, I mean.

Grumpy thoughts today... some kind of parody of "On Ilkley Moor Bah T'at", about human-generated toxins being absorbed by tiny creatures, then working up the food chain until they poison humans. "That's wheer we get us o'ahn back."  Mercury, PCBs, other heavy metals, other weird organics.  The concept was inspired by seeing a bit of plastic go down the drain before I could grab it, but the environmental harm caused by tiny flakes and microfibres of plastic in the oceans probably doesn't reach back to the humans.

Feh.  I've had better holidays.

Now it is the month of May-ing
Fa-la-la-la-la la-la la la
When the mer-ry lads are play-ing
Fa-la-la-la-la la-la la la
E-each with his bon-ny la-ass
Fa-la-la-la-la la-la la la
Down up-on the green-y gra-ass
Fa-la-la-la-la la-la la la

And so forth.

(You all know what the "fa-la-la"s are all about, right?)

Edited to add:

If you prefer a non-masculopresumptive version...

Now it is the month of Maying
Fa-la-la-(etc.)
With the merry lasses playing
Each with her bonny lads
Down upon the greeny grass

The non-heteronormative versions are trivial and I will leave them as an exercise for the reader.
