My lovely, wonderful friend Sarah (who I have been friends with since the 7th grade), came to town and introduced us to her fiance and asked me to sing at their wedding. :)

I agreed, but only if I can sing "Welcome to the Jungle". She said that would be fine, but that I should also learn something in Gaelic, since they are Irish. So I'm thinking I might try to translate "Welcome to the Jungle" into Gaelic, and see if that goes over.

Otherwise, I'd guess I'd better start looking for some traditional Irish love songs.
Any ideas?

uhhh... the <href="http://www.thebards.net/music/lyrics/irish_ballad.shtml">Irish Ballad</a> perhaps?

Personally, I think "Welcome to the jungle" is a great idea.

Thanks for the link!

Saturday I cleaned my filthy house, got all pretty and went to a rock show then home and basically spent the rest of the time with my boyfriend. Sunday involved lots of cooking, coffee-drinking, working on the magazine (see my post) followed by wine-drinking, strawberry-eating, dancing around to Edith Piaf, movie-watching, and other indoor sports.

That's not really an amusing anecdote, but it's merry.

It is indeed. Thanks.

(PS- I love Edith Piaf!)

Can you sneak outside? If it's as nice there as it is here, you need to go outside.
Mar. 3rd, 2008 07:33 pm (UTC)
Oh, and I finally put in my passport application. That's potentially merry.

My merry story involves the costume birthday party for a 5 year old that happily spilled outdoors.

Also played with Issuu (http://www.issuu.com) and wrote a blog post about it: http://www.spellboundblog.com/2008/03/02/issuu-interesting-platform-for-online-publishing/

I bet you can find something pretty to look through over there.

Ooh, ooh! Wonderful link. I will spend some time digging through that. And, yay for costumed 5 year olds!

My weekend was...not merry. But I can do a little dance for you!

*doo doo, do de doo doo, do de doo*

I totally imagine you doing a Gir dance!

I am slain! You are entirely too cute.

I went to Philly on the train to see Electric Masada, and then one of the drummers from the band was on the same train as us back to DC, so we got to go tell him how fab he was.

Lovely. Thanks :)

I had drinks on Thursday with my BFF, a wonderful dinner on Friday with another good friend, lazed around on Saturday, and met my family for lunch on Sunday! Two of my aunts, my cousin Denise, my mom, and my cousin Diana. It was so good to see the Kansas branch of the family. I was especially happy to see Diana because it's been about 10 years. She's 52 and has pink hair now. I love her to bits! The level of coolness in Kansas, such as it is, goes down by an order of magnitude whenever my family leaves. (Also, the number of registered Democrats goes down by at least half.) :)

Now I have a completely disgusting cold, alas. The Emergen-C was too late to help me. :(

Monday's almost o-vah! Yay!
Mar. 3rd, 2008 11:56 pm (UTC)
Heh. You probably already know about the book What's the Matter with Kansas</a>, right? Sounds like a delightful time.

So sorry about the cold. I really have no basis for claiming that the EmergenC is why I've stayed healthy this season, but it's the only daily habit I've been disciplined about, and it is kind of remarkable that I haven't gotten sick in so long.

Anyway, get lots of rest. You aren't pushing yourself too hard, and failing to take sick leave when you need it, are you? *taps foot*

Try living in Kansas. I grew up in the country, lived in small towns before, but Kansas is still like living on a remote island.
Thats my good thing... I'm out of Kansas and in PA. Which includes the chance to go see my family and eat all the stuff I can't get out in Kansas: Scrapple, Red Beat Eggs, Hot Bacon Dressing, ShooFly Pie, my dad's apple pie(ate a whole one in one sitting).

Ummmmm...maybe? ;) Interestingly, today I feel just about normal, but my voice is about an octave lower than usual. Gotta work on my Marlene Dietrich accent.

I actually hadn't heard about What's the Matter with Kansas. So what is the matter with it?

Glad you're feeling better. You know, many years ago, my Mom got to go to Hollywood to present Barbara Streisand with an award of some sort while she was getting over laryngitis. She apologized to Barbara about her scratchy voice before the ceremony, who replied that it sounded sexy, and would come off great in Tinsel Town :)

It would seem that this is what's the matter with Kansas. I have to say, I'm really happy to hear that your family is there. We can't all just flock to the Blue States and leave the other ones to the bad guys.

Heh, looks like an interesting read. Well, my freaky, left-wing, queer-friendly, pink-haired, college-educated family will continue to fight the good fight out there in the wheat fields! :)

Now my voice just sounds nasal and whiny. Poo.
