It's been so long!

I’m still alive!! πŸ™‚

I just guess it was one of those weeks where I didn’t have much to say… or it was so boring that I didn’t want to put you to sleep with every stinking detail of the week. Aren’t I kind to you?

Chorus rehearsals start up again today. The new show’s name is “In the Mood” and will be based around jazz tunes from the 30’s through the 50’s. That’s right up my alley (so to speak.) I love jazz music. So I’m interested to see what our director has up his sleeve.

Last night I went to a lovely party hosted by two of our newest chorus members. The party was being held to celebrate Epiphany, which in my household was pretty much only celebrated as “The day you take the Christmas tree down.” But their celebration was somewhat steeped in tradition, including one where everyone takes a flat sugar cookie and, at the same time, you bite into it or open it up to see if a whole almond was inside. If you got one of the almonds, you were crowned one of the three kings. Guess who got one of the almonds? πŸ˜‰ I wish I had pictures. My lovely construction paper yellow crown was cute for about 45 minutes, and then I discreetly “lost” it. It was a fun evening.

So anyway, tonight is the first rehearsal since December, and I’m a little bummed because A. I have gotten used to having my Sundays off, as most Chorus members do, and B. I’m going to miss Desperate Housewives, which I became a fan of over the Holiday when they re-ran the first episode. In typical style, I don’t get hooked on a new TV show until mid-way through the season or, sometimes, midway through the show’s run. I did find a really fun site that reviews shows in great detail (with a healthy dose of good old American snark) for those whose lives are like mine and never find themselves in front of the TV. It’s called Television Without Pity. And let me tell you, the folks that write the reviews there should be writing their own shows. Especially the girl who writes about Desperate Housewives. Fun stuff.

So it looks like I have to set the timer on my new VCR.

Hopefully this week will be more post-y.

I have to take my Christmas tree down now. Have a wonderful weekend. πŸ™‚
