Today our bud needed the second component to his flu shot so Mike got the honor of taking him. They're coming by in a little while to visit and take me out to lunch, and reports from the field are that Mr. Man was a total champ at the doctor's. He's a total champ in nearly every aspect, so why should a little shot be any different, right? Ah, my baby.

In our efforts to expose him to a lot of different things in order to make him as well rounded as possible, (i.e., entertain us all), we watch a lot of youtube clips, mostly music. For some reason these are HR's current favorites. Yeah, he's already a little far-flung in his tastes, what can I say it runs in the family.

The first one is a discovery for all of us from the "solid gold oldies" station. Warning - you will be unable to get it out of your head.

I have no idea where this one came from, but it makes him laugh and laugh. Maybe it's the outfit? Regardless, excellent song.

Oh, and the holiday song o' the day: the rather maudlin but culturally significant "Do They Know It's Christmas?" by Band Aid. Does it bother you that Sting gets to sing the "sting of tears" lyric? It bothers me - it seems too on the nose, but it's for a good cause and... ooh, John Taylor. Did I mention John Taylor? Happy Christmas, indeed.
