I then got a great idea that I borrowed from Dave E Wo, a picture story. From me, I added guess that song. So this morning when I got to work I set about finding pictures to represent the words to some of my favorite Christmas songs and hung them up on my door. I just did the first verses of the songs because any more than that would be too much action. Most people only guess the first line anyway. My door has the words “Can you name that Christmas tune?” on the top and then six pictograms below. The back of the door has the lyrics on it. My songs are 1. Walking in a Winter Wonderland 2. Let it Snow 3. Frosty the Snowman 4. The Chipmunks Christmas Song (which is by far the hardest) 5. The Christmas Song and 6. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus. I really wanted to include one of them here but couldn't. But wait! Maybe I can scan one of them into my computer save it as a jpeg and then include the scanned image, let’s see.
Well, even though my printer has a scanner, it doesn’t seem to work. Crappy. No pictograms for you guys. Let’s just run down some of the pictures I am more proud of than others.
Winter Wonderland- a picture of Diane Lane for “lane” and a rifle scope for “sight”
Let It Snow- O magazine for “Oh” The Wii for “we” a go board for “go” and the cover of Let it Be for “let it”
Frosty The Snowman- The jolly roger for “jolly” A picture of how to figure area with an arrow pointing to the W for “with”
The Chipmunk Christmas Song- Ben Stein for “been” and a big Douglas Adams Don’t Panic for “don’t”
The Christmas Song- Jack Sparrow for “jack” and a precious puppy biting fingers for “nipping”
I Saw Momma Kissing Santa Claus- the band Kiss for “kissing” The Thinker for “think” and of course my wonderful face for “me”
People that have come by all think my door is very creative. One person actually thinks I should win. Imagine that. Personally I predict that someone with a nice traditional door will win and then I’ll get an honorable mention for the most creative door or something strange like that. Maybe I won’t get mentioned at all. I’m just pretty sure I won’t actually win. Either way it was fun. Plus, this way I won’t get called a non-participating boring person.
There was only one song from the super easy shuffle yesterday that was not guessed. Probably because it was somewhat obscure. Good. Let's see if I can come up with some more hardish ones.
1. Tell em I’m driving and it’s all right turning on this wheel turning on headlights.
2. I've had enough of danger, people on the streets. One More Try, George Michael. Identified by Monica
3. Summer and winter winter and springtime you heard the birds sing everything will be fine. A Summer Wasting, Belle and Sebastian. Identified by Monica
4. In the right light study becomes insight but the system that dissed us teaches us to read and write.
5. After all the jacks are in the boxes and the clowns have all gone to bed.
So Mommy fixed the pictures and here they are. They are kind of small so you can't see all the detail which can make it harder but since you know the answers who cares.
