My dearest friend and genealogy blogging colleague footnoteMaven has arranged for the Annual Choir of GeneAngels to contribute their favorite Christmas carols.
Rather than simply print the lyrics or perhaps look for an audio or video clip, I opted to go one further and record an inspired interpretation of Winter Wonderland. What inspired me I don't know - just plain silliness, too much caffeine or a commitment to finally figure out how my webcam worked in terms of recording video. Please be advised that there is a good reason why I blog through the media of writing and not video. I have a face made for radio and a voice which could cut glass. I haven't sung in I'm not sure how many years so if neighborhood dogs come running or your own pets start shrieking you'll know why.
Note to footnoteMaven: I hope the surgery went well. And please don't bust your stitches by watching this and laughing too much.
Disclaimer: this video was made at 1:30 pm on a workday afternoon. There was no alcohol consumption involved, I had not been huffing Lysol under the kitchen sink nor were any animals harmed during the production. Sometimes you just feel like a nut. Sometimes you don't.
And towards the end the video seems to freeze but the audio continues on. I'd like to think that my webcam was just overcome with the stunning beauty of my holiday raiment and my voice.
