If sock monkeys wrote "Auld Lang Syne"

A rerun from last year. Hey, I am nothing if not thrifty. I am, after all, one-quarter Scots.

sock monkey We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou'd the gowans fine,
But we've wander'd monie a weary fit,
Sin auld lang syne.
Now, gie* me that banana.


(Lyrics to "Auld Lang Syne" are here, along with a pronunciation guide.)

(Oh, and if sock monkeys bought calendars, they'd buy this. Out of stock at Amazon, but I got a copy at Borders for half price this weekend. The photos are great.)

(Now, have a happy new year.)

Happy new year to you, too!
We can look forward to more sock monkeys in 2008?

Nothin' wrong with recycling (says the woman who posted the photo of her cat hanging out in the Christmas tree two years in a row).

Punkinsmom: That seems a safe bet.

Fermicat: We should think of this as going green. Ed Begley Jr. would be proud.
