O Catnip Tree

And here’s another out-of-schedule post. I wonder how long it will take to annoy people with those, but when inspiration strikes, I have to succumb before I get over it.

So in this special case, twitter’s lovely Megan Paasch and a couple of writers did something on twitter called #12DaysOfTwitter1.

They wrote christmassy bloggy things, and you should totally check them out.

So a few minutes prior to writing this post, she posted the link to a blog post containing a very special christmas memory. In order to understand fully understand this blog post, you should read it2.

 

 

 

That’s when things got out of hand for me.

So I present you with the lyrics to the famous Christmas classic

 

O Catnip Tree

O Catnip Tree! O Catnip Tree!
Thy leaves are so sweet smelling;
O Catnip Tree! O Catnip Tree!
Thy leaves are so sweet smelling;
Not only pine when summer’s here,
But also nip, the cat we fear.
O Catnip Tree! O Catnip Tree!
Thy leaves are so sweet smelling!

O Catnip Tree! O Catnip Tree!
Much danger thou present’s to me;
O Catnip Tree! O Catnip Tree!
Much danger thou present’s to me;
Who would’ve thought that Pudah cat
Jumped up the tree and just like that?
O Catnip Tree! O Catnip Tree!
Thou crashest down almost on me!

O Windswept Tree! O Windswept Tree!
The draft will get you swaying!
O Windswept Tree! O Windswept Tree!
The draft will get you swaying!
The fireplace flue di’nt work quite right;
The window cracked all through the night.
O Windswept Tree! O Windswept Tree!
The draft will get you swaying!

O Windswept Tree! O Windswept Tree!
Thou crashest again and scareth me!
O Windswept Tree! O Windswept Tree!
Thou crashest again and scareth me!
We swept away the broken glass;
And hoped that time’s fin’lly the last;
O Shaky Tree! O Shaky Tree!
You fell again day number three!

I know, it weren’t three consecutive days, but give me a break, poetic license and all that, also I knocked this together in less than 30 minutes.

Merry 12th day of Christmas, everyone!
