i think it's a sign.

i went all the way out to gaithersburg and the ONE road i know of to get to the SPCA was blocked off for no apparent reason. i drove around gaithersburg trying to find my way there using my excellent sense of direction (which turned out not to be so excellent today with the rain, i thought i was heading west and i was heading north) until my innards could not handle it anymore, and then went home, and when i got here i emailed the shift leader that i probably need to find another place, closer to home, to volunteer.

any suggestions?

Ummm... if you're going north on 355... you take a right before the road goes over the train tracks... I can't remember the name of the road. Then you are in Old Town gaithersburg and you take a right on diamond, I think, and the SPCA is a little ways down on the left. They will be needing someone on Friday mornings, heh...

Oooh that's odd. If you had continued on 355 and went right onto 117 (Clopper Road--right before the bridge) and went under the bridge and made a right onto...Water Street? I think it is, then another Right onto Chestnut, then a Right onto E.Diamond Avenue... :)

I heard it for the first time this season, just this morning. Now I *really* feel Christmasy! The problem is it will be stuck in my brain for HOURS.

I am listening to some Internet Radio Station of Xmas music and they have a cover version of that song! I love it too!!
Except in all my years I can't figure out this line:
Last Christmas I gave you my heart
and the very next day, you gave it away
This year
(and this next line I dont' know what he is saying!)
de cembie/december bought tears?

The internet is an amazing place.

CHORUS:
Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day
you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

CHORUS.

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye
Tell me baby
Do you recognize me?
Well, it's been a year
It doesn't surprise me

"Happy Christmas"
I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying "I love you"
I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now
I know you'd fool me again

CHORUS.

A crowded room
Friends with tired eyes
I'm hiding from you
And your soul of ice
My god I thought you were
Someone to rely on
Me?
I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

A face on a lover
with a fire in his heart
A man under cover
but you tore me apart
Now I've found a real love
you'll never fool me again

CHORUS. 2X

A face on a lover
with a fire in his heart
A man under cover
but you tore him apart
Maybe next year I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special.

Ha! I knew it was out there somewhere, I used to have a great lyrics site bookmarked when I was in college, its now gone the way of the covered wagon.
I always wanted to sing "Friends with tie-dyes" instead of Friends with tired eyes..ha ha ha..
