What do Ariana Grande and I have in common?

December 22, 2014

(Besides our killer bods and dumptrucks full of cash)

I don’t know much about Ariana Grande other than she covered Wham!’s Last Christmas* on the Michael Buble special and I think she did okay with it. But this image came up in a search I was doing** and I nearly died…

Album (single?) cover – Problem by Ariana Grande featuring Iggy Azalea.




It’s Bounce being sold through Letterhead Fonts. I bought it years ago (pre-2006) for around $40 and swore since I spent that much money, I’d never use another font. It’s adorable and I wish Miss Grande the best with her $40 font.
In more realistic day-to-day news, I ended up with five types of cookies: pinwheels, PB blossoms, sugar cutouts, gingerbread, and spritz. Tonight I’ll frost the sugar cookies & gingerbread. It was a smaller year because frankly, not many people eat cookies anymore. WM is on his 2-week holiday break. TNP closes on Wednesday and doesn’t reopen until January 5th. This will be my first paid winter break (where I didn’t have to burn vacation days) ever. Even in college I worked retail, so I was always working on 12/26.

* I was a huge Wham! fan when we were all young. And for as much love and admiration I had for them and every single word they (ok mostly George) sang, I am still shocked that Last Christmas has become a Christmas classic.

** I was trying to find out more on Iggy Azalea. Everyone knows her except me because while my musical world is growing, it’s not growing in Iggy’s direction.

    Last Christmas is one of my favorite Christmas songs. I listen to it incessantly.

      I love it because of my love for George before his “don’t let this man in a car” stage. But if someone other than him sings it I’m out.

        We uh, “sang” it last Friday at karaoke. George has little to worry about. Also, I agree with you about the covers. They are playing no less than two cover versions at work and I cringe each time I hear them.
