I expect that I'll add Rondo' Veneziano; Magica Melodia to this somewhere at some point, but it's too new (to me) at this point.
I have so much to write about my week... but all of it is escaping me right now. Let me see if I can pluck a few things outta my brain.
Wed: Like I remember as far back as Wednesday. Getouttahere. Oh, yeah; I did an on-site review at a client's location, and watched Nureyev's Don Quixote on PBS. (If it weren't for chatlogs, I'd be hopeless.)
Thurs: Got me gremlinatacious car fixed, to the tune of $400. Lousy tune; damn the composer. Didn't go to bellydancing; got some cleaning done around the house instead. Yay.
Fri: received present from my friend-- homemade dutch apple pie (YUM) and a CD chock-full of cool MP3s (including 5 disks of Disney, and 2 of Rondo' Veneziano). Everybody cancelled out on doing anything, so I went to Blockbuster to rent The Nightmare Before Christmas ("What's This?!" on one of the Disney CDs made me really yearn for it). For the record, I don't rent movies. I've two VCRs, and I've probably used one of them twice. I have to REALLY want to see something to bother with it. That said, can you believe that my Blockbuster no longer carries The Nightmare Before Christmas?! I was disappointed. Got Emperor's New Groove instead. Didn't watch it : P
Sat: Went to rehearsal. It was cancelled. Came home, cleaned. Did laundry with E. Played Mindtrap over laundry and dinner (Ground Round). Relaxed a bit, showered, changed, and went to B & N's party. Saw xso, who was leaving as I was arriving. Had a good time. Went to the local yokel bar with M & E and stayed 'til closing.
Sun: Slept, slept... slept some more. Got Taco Schmell and watched Emperor's New Groove with E. About to do the sleep thing again.
Somewhere along the way (Thursday, maybe?), I picked up the last Harry Potter book. Nice light summer reading, that.
I had a bunch of links I wanted to share at one point, but have somehow managed to lose them. I'll check under the bed and get back to you.
In the meantime,
Darn you to heck, duinlas (got to 30, jftr)
...and darn you, too, papoose (forgot how far I got)
(Please let me know if the nested links cause a problem with your browser-- thanks!)
edgarallanpoe and prytania!
</i>Edgar, I feel like I've known you forever (more?)... and prytania, I look forward to getting to know you better!</i>
Oh, before I go, I'd like to compliment everyone who knew their Schoolhouse Rocks : )
I discovered a neat factoid through that, which I'd like to briefly share...
The great story behind Grammar Rock is Lynn Aherns, who wrote three of the songs (including "A Noun Is a Person, Place, or Thing") and went on to write the lion's share of the America Rock and Science Rock series--and, in the years since, three Broadway shows and the score for Disney's Anastasia. A secretary at the ad agency that produced the series, she was discovered after bringing her guitar in to work. [stolen from here]
Further investigation revealed that she and composer Stephen Flaherty are the team responsible for musicals like Seussical and Ragtime (among others). Just thought I'd share.
