Made it home (!) after a night of one hour of sleep due to my inability to do every task I suddenly deem critical before leaving town. Oh and a little procrastination in the form of watching “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” on Cartoon Network right smack in the middle of the packing extravaganza.
My absolute favorite part of “The Grinch” is his description of the joyful noise the Who kids make upon opening their toys. Now that I have had eight and a half hours of sleep, I cannot wait to play a little Zoo-Zivver-Car-Zay with my old and dear friends. NOISE NOISE NOISE NOISE NOISE!!!!
“And then…all the noise! All the noise, noise, noise, noise!
If there’s one thing I hate…all the noise, noise, noise, noise!
And they’ll shriek, squeak, and squeal racing round on their wheels,
Then dance with jin-tinglers tied onto their heels!”
“They’ll blow their flu-flubers, they’ll bang their tar-tinkers,
They’ll blow their hoo-hoovers, they’ll bang their gar-dinkers!
They’ll beat their trum-tookers, they’ll slam their sloo-slunkers!
They’ll beat their blum-blookers, they’ll wham their hoo-whunkers!”
“And they’ll play noisy games, like Zoo-Zivver-Car-Zay,
A rollerskate-type of LaCrosse and croquet!
Then they’ll make earsplitting noises deluxe
On their great big Electro-Who-Cardio-Floox!”
