Merry Christmas (Don't Look Back In Anger)

I'm leaving on a jet plane early tomorrow morning to spend Christmas and the entire next week reading magazines, watching bad TV and passing out on either my mom or my grandma's couch. (Welcome to the 30s!) And, who knows—I'll probably even hop on here now and then to bang out a few posts.

So happy holidays, everyone. Have a safe week, and why not revisit some of these classy Chart Rigger jams from the past 12 months?

    A very merry Christmas to you and yours, D'Luvly! x

    Whether I agree or disagree with your posts (and I agree far more than disagree), I always enjoy the perspective you bring to pop music. That, and the trash talking. Now can we stop talking about real housewives?

    I am a bit bummed that Bionic didn't do better on the charts. It was definitely chock-full of single-worthies. I guess that'll teach Xtina to stop parading around like a trying-too-hard whore. Nevermind, it really didn't.

    Hope you had a wonderful Xmas, Robbie, and that all your Xmas dreams came true, including the death (or at least silencing) of Cheryl Cole and the presence of a naked Take That under your tree (or at least the best parts of Take That). Ummm, I'm starting to think that you realize how cute you look in that snowy pic and that that is why it appears with some frequency...

    Shaun, I object! I've only used that photo once before, in the Throwback post (which is listed here, hence me recycling the pic), you wicked little tart.

    Joshua, hmmm. I find most of Bionic to be un-listenable, save for "Not Myself Tonight."

    John, I'm obsessed with "Atlanta".

    MrBrady, Thanks! Back at ya.

    Miss you to pieces. I can't believe a whole year has gone by, once again.

    Meanwhile, I got all caught up over the holidays with my Housewives viewing at my mom's house. We must discuss!

    Also, loving me some Kandi Koated. ;)


    See you soon!
