Kelly Clarkson | Underneath the Tree

This is the only song I’ve heard in recent memory that comes close to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” in terms of “potential to become a new Christmas classic.”

EVERYONE GO LISTEN ON REPEAT! This song sounds like Love Actually feels. It also prompted my friend Jill and I to have this conversation:

Jill: HOW THE FUCK DO YOU NOT DO JAZZ HANDS WHEN SHE STARTS SINGING

Me: it makes me want to likeā€¦

Me: ok, work with me here

Me: imagine a xmas shopping montage

Jill: yes

Me: on one of those cute British streets

Me: with lots of twinkle lights and snow

Me: and you’re like

Me: skipping around with bags

Me: with the person you love

Me: and then you stop in front of the tree that’s in the central square

Me: and he spins you around and pulls you in and kisses you

Jill: PLEASE TELL ME WE RUSH PAST A WINDOW AND THEN I PULL HIM BACK TO POINT OUT SOMETHING PRETTY AND THEN THE SCENE CUTS TO US IN THE STORE WITH HIM BUYING IT, LOOKING EXASPERATED BUT SECRETLY PLEASED

It’s tough out there

when your Numero Uno daily gchat partner goes on VACATION to MEXICO with her HUSBAND for an ENTIRE WEEK and leaves you to fend for yourself.

Jill got justifiably ragey this morning about stupid Jodie Laubenberg thinking that rape kits are abortions.
  • me: It blows my mind that gchat is not the official name for Gmail’s chatting service, and that is it instead, technically, called “Google Talk”.
  • me: WHAT THE FUCK, GOOGLE. LITERALLY EVERYONE IN THE WHOLE WORLD CALLS IT GCHAT. WHAT IS YOUR ISH, REFUSING TO USE THE COMMON NAME?
  • me: Obviously everyone at Google uses gchat – do you think they are forced to call it Google Talk even though everyone in the whole world calls it gchat?
  • Jill: That reminds me of an article I read back in 2009 when the iPhone was really booming in popularity which said that Melinda Gates wouldn't ever own one and I was like “wow, never thought of that.”
  • Jill: I actually kind of felt sorry for her.
  • Jill: I FELT SORRY FOR THE RICHEST WOMAN ON THE PLANET BECAUSE SHE COULDN'T HAVE ONE LINE OF TECH DEVICES.

Thankfully Jill is keeping me entertained with important text updates while I wait for my (extremely delayed) flight:

Jill: ELDERLY FOLKS AT PANERA DISCUSSING THE BIEBS AND SELENA GOMEZ GETTING BACK TOGETHER

Texts From Jill:

Now they’re discussing Bruce Jenner’s plastic surgery.

I cannot handle the quotes Jill is texting me from these old men at Panera

"Jon Voight’s daughter is that Angelina Jolie. You know, the girl with lips as big as my arm."

Jill and I have the same emotions re: Tom Hanks
