Various & Sundry XXII

  1. This is fantastic. Love the choreography!
  2. I am done with performances until March 2010. Nice.
  3. All of my choirs sang like angels this week. Wonder what’s up…
  4. My family have gone through some amazingly tough times over the past four days, and have persevered. I heart them all.
  5. Am I the only person on the planet who thinks Alex Rodriguez is not pretty? Ew. He creepy-lookin’. But he’d most likely think the same about me, so there it is. Women are likely drawn to his radiant personality.
  6. OK, the Tiger thing. Truthfully, at first I said, “The guy had an affair. Leave him alone and let him sort it out.” But a dozen ladies later…yikes, brother has a problem, and not just with public relations.
  7. I was talking to a 6th grade teacher before my concert last night, and she said that she feared her students grasped only about 20% of the instructions they’re given. I’d say the fact that I had told my 5th grade boys approximately 90 times over the last three months that they had to wear neckties to the gig — and several still showed up without them — supports that assumption. (But props to the 7th and 8th grade guys who let them borrow their ties while they performed.)
  8. Happy birthday, Artillius Merchclod! Many happy returns, pal.
  9. The next two days are going to be extraordinarily busy, but with good stuff.
  10. What all are you doing over the holiday?

Welp, time to get going. I have detention duty at the high school this morning. Detention, right before Christmas break? Yep. Knuckleheadedness apparently keeps no calendar.

A-Fraud has the personality of a yam. People are probably drawn to his money and power. Look at what Tiger got away with for all this time… Did anybody really see this coming? He was voted best athlete of the decade, by the way. He got the vote over Michael Phelps, Lance Armstrong, and Roger Federer. Roger should’ve won. He has more majors victories than Tiger, and Tiger won some of his in the 90’s.

I’m on the airplane headed back to Dallas. The guy next to me saw me watching the video – BURST into laughter & told me to send him the link to the vid. He’s definitely “a friend of Dorothy’s” as we say… LOL Maybe you should do what my dad did years ago when he was a marching band director. Some kid showed up one football game wearing white tennis shoes when he knows he’s supposed to be wearing black shoes & spats. Dad got out a can of black spray paint that he had in his office & they… Read more »

Don’t these kids understand by now? Tie your hair back, no open to shoes, guys… wear a necktie. It’s so engraved in my brain that if I even came to watch a choir concert, I’m sure my hair would be tied back AND I’d have a necktie on. But you said they were 5th graders, so I’ll cut them a little slack. They’ve only heard it 50,000 times instead of the 12,000,000 times I got to hear it before I graduated.

Wasn’t it, though? You can tell it was filmed in a dance studio — I loved it. Excellent feet!
