My Favorite Things (2012)

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Christmas songs are ubiquitous during the holiday season.  In my household, we have Michael Bublé, Martina McBride, Andrea Bocelli, and MercyMe playing constantly.  The music of the season has become part of the holiday tradition for many families.  A lesser tradition here on this blog is my rewording of a song that has become a holiday classic – “My Favorite Things.”

Chihaya is only a few weeks away;
Anime tropes even if they’re cliche;
Saber rises above the other kings;
These are a few of my favorite things.

Mawaru Penguindrum
coming on Blu-Ray;
Kiritsugu finally fights against Kirei;
Rikka to Yuta with a pinky clings;
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the season’s weak,
When entertainment’s bleak,
When Key makes me sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don’t feel so bad.

Brainy and brawny guys bond over jazz;
Asuna’s prison is like Alcatraz;
Last volume of Cross Game all tied up with strings;
These are a few of my favorite things.

Heartseed, Inaba, Taichi, and Inori;
Rewatching and loving Clannad After Story;
ESP mystery the new world brings;
These are a few of my favorite things.

About TWWK

TWWK, known to outlaws and lawmen alike as Charles, lives deep in the heart of Texas, where he drives cattle and boot scoots (not really - though he does sport a pair of rattlesnake boots). Somehow in this frontier, he also finds time for his wife, children, and church. Oh, and anime, too.
