Warms the heart

Dear Kristin,
I know how you feel about her voice, but it's his silent shrug-giggle at the end that makes it worth the watching and rewatching:

We want this to be a true, true love.  At least for  the day.

Of course you've already seen this by now.  After all, it's been on the internet for two days.  Over 2 million views in two tiny days.  Today's news is now and forever yesterday's news. I like to think it doesn't matter, though.  That this duet will last, that we'll be here this time next year and every year thereafter.  Is that too warm-hearted for your blood?  I'd hug you if you were here.  Make you talk about yourself and be all sensitive.  It's just the mood I'm in.  You'd hate/love it.

I'm doing one of these this year:

 Woody Guthrie's New Year Rulins.  Found on Lists of Note, a site that's worth hours of your attention.

I don't usually. We were probably seventeen the last time I even made an attempt.  But this year I'm going to give it a go, treating it more like a 2012 to-do list.  Another one of my top tens.  I'm out of school, jobless.  I need to at least be checking things list off, things I can do myself while submitting to jobs and journals. I'm still in the fine-tuning stages, but perhaps I'll share a few of the less ridiculous ones once I'm done. 

And there will be another Songs for the New Year, Courtesy of the Old Year.  On that you can rely.
