Random Thoughts On A Sunday:

Christmas Music III: Here's the best Canadian Christmas music that isn't Bob & Doug or Anne Murray.

Santa's Gonna Kick Your Ass – By the Arrogant Worms

Robot Parade – Not to be confused with the
Robot Nine parade.

Now try to get THAT out of your head.

Random Act Of Kindness – For those of you who are wondering if there are any good people left in the world: A friend of mine and her boyfriend took a cab up to my place Saturday night, and she ended up leaving her wallet in the cab. Luckily, this is FAR from the first time she's done this, so her wallet contains the bare minimum: license, cash card, credit card, and some cash. Everything got canceled pretty easily, and the festivities resumed. @2:30 this afternoon, the cabbie called me (based on the change of address card she had in her wallet that she used to provide him my street address), and he's returning the wallet when he gets back on shift.

Kick ass song Scope. And the wallet story? Excellent.

Aww, God bless him for returning it! That is truly awesome.

My mom lost her wallet once and some random dude showed up knocking on our door to return it. (Awww, how nice, right?) She was so pleasantly surprised with his honesty that she offered him a reward.

When she went into her wallet the cash was gone. We were never sure if he took the cash but she didn't give him ANY sort of reward. Lol. Poor guy probably just picked it up after someone else ran off with cash.

I once got a gift certificate to a restaurant for picking up someone's wallet and mailing it to her. I was surprised by that, since I didn't really expect a reward; it was just the boy scout in me coming out.

As far as Canadian Christmas songs go, I'm still a fan of the impromptu God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen put together by Sarah McLaughlin and Bare Naked Ladies. But it pales in comparison to Bob & Doug.

Next year we'll get a dozen donuts.

Awesome story. Especially this time of year and in this economy.
