Ho, ho, ho, woke up this morning with a scary feeling
Realized it was November 1st, Christmas oh my gosh it’s nearing
…I got up quick and ran to the mall, before my pain got any worse
What a stupid thing to do — I’m a sitting duck, in Santa’s Zoo
…Then suddenly I laughed and laughed, caught on to what was happening
Christmas magic’s brought this chill to a very happy ending
—”Christmas Wrapping”, Save Ferris
(go to the end of this post to learn more about this song!)
So … speaking of it being (after) November 1st, it’s time for me to talk holidays with YOU, my friends! I admit I’ve fallen terribly behind in putting up my promo as early as I’d thought of it (which was the beginning of October!), but I still have a handful of openings for portrait sessions open through December.

Now… for more on the song “Christmas Wrapping” by Save Ferris
As many of you know, I’m an alt-music fan, and most specifically I listen to one of the leaders in alternative music, the radio station known as KROQ based here in Los Angeles. For many years, Kevin & Bean (the morning talk-show DJs) produced a holiday CD with the alt artists doing original songs or covers of holiday favorites with their own spin on it. This is where Save Ferris comes in (remember them? They did a very popular cover of “Come On Eileen“, originally done by Dexy’s Midnight Runners). Save Ferris did this very funny cover of the Waitresses 1980’s hit, Christmas Wrapping, except they put their own Channukah/Christmas fusion spin on it, talking about the dread of shopping and the holiday craziness.
Want to hear it? You can’t download it on iTunes, but you can hear it online on YouTube here. Enjoy!
