10:35 pm - synchronicity
Nothing makes me happier than listening to an old Christmas-time Jean Shepherd radio show from the early 70s, when he suddenly launches into the "only Christmas carol I know":
Deck us all with Boston Charlie!
Walla Walla, Wash, and Kalamazoo!
Nora's freezing on the trolley
Swaller dollar cauliflower, alleygaroo!

Don't we know archaic barrel?
Lullabye, lilla boy, Louisville Lou?
Trolley Molly don't love Harold
Boola Boola, Pensacoola, Hullabaloo!

Somehow that just brings the amount of cheer I need right now.

That carol is from Walt Kelly’s Pogo, of course.

Well, yes.
And hearing Shep recite it brings together two of my cultural heroes.

That's what makes it so cool.
