A Fine '09: Winter 2009

This playlist is long overdue, and for that I apologize. I realize y'all have been songless for the past two months, but the wait is over ( I like to imagine there's a ton of y'all out there eagerly awaiting my seasonal compilations with anticipation ). Here's a soundtrack to help you get through all of the broken New Year's resolutions, all of the winter chills and all of the economy-related stress. Sealed and approved by yours truly: 1.

And then, I had to suppress a squeal while doing my best not to overdo the Happy Dance in my chair. I can see that my spring will be taken up with several trips to my favorite cul-de-sac and apartment complex in L.A. Finally, after one long-ass wait, I can relive the treachery and the bitchery...To all my 50-year-old housewives out there, ya feel me? Amanda Woodward and Abby Cunningham, how I've missed you so. H.P.M.
