Some Things Are Worth Repeating

When I first saw Elf I couldn't get this song out of my head. I thought Zooey Deschanel's voice was amazing. (Thankfully, She & Him came into existence!) I didn't really listen to the lyrics until I burned the Dean Martin version from my mother-in-law. From there, "Baby It's Cold Outside" has taken on this whole new life (in my brain). It will forever be known as "The Christmas Date Rape song." I don't want to spoil your Christmas joy, but once you listen to the lyrics really carefully, you might feel the same way.

I read this post and was like, dude, didn't we already have this conversation when I realized we haven't actually spoken in over 2 or 3 years and then I read the title of the post. d.u.h.

Anyway, I have always felt the same way. I do love Elf though and I think Will Ferrell was an ass for turning down millions to do a sequel. If I had the money, I would give it all to him for just one more 90-minute trip to the North Pole.

I was discussing the meaning behind such a "pretty" Christmas song with my girlfriends last night but they thought I was thinking into it too much.
