Hula Shake {leave your links!} Featuring YOU!

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Now it's time to move onto Hanukkah and Christmas! In fact we bought our Christmas tree yesterday. It was a bit of a whim, the price and tree were right, but we've never bought a tree this early before. Hoping it doesn't dry out.

Now if he had driven because of his fear of flying and then got into a car accident, now that would be ironic. Well, Miss Morissette if you care to redo your hit single with some real ironic examples, I'm offering up my current situation...Sing it with me folks, to the tune of "Ironic"...
