I'm Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland


Seattle in snow is stunning. Ridiculous, too. Too many hills, too many people who haven't a clue how to drive in it. But we have a housekeeper at work who lives in my 'hood, is from New York and has four wheel drive. It's all good.

Before the snow came I had "Baby, It's Cold Outside" on my mind all day. And that made me think of the scene in "Elf" where Zooey Deschanel and Will Farrell sing the same. (I love that movie).

And that made me think about the recently learned fact that Zooey is in a band called "She and Him" so I went looking for something that would showcase her talents more fully and found this little gem:



She and Him "You Really Got a Hold on Me"

No wonder she's on The Spouse's list for The Child's New Mommy.

First time I saw Elf I thought the singing was dubbed. She is so good!

Never heard her sing - I hang my head in shame and admit I don't like Will Farrell, so never saw Elf - the girl is great. Bet she could do a mean cabaret turn.

As for the snow - well just remember there is no I repeat no climate change.

I love her voice! I didn't know about She and Him, but have always she should be doing more singing.
