When Sissy heard that I was thinking about signing up for some dance classes, and couldn’t decide between ballroom, clogging, ballet, tap, or belly dance classes, she immediately decided that she was going to sign up for private dance lessons in santa monica herself. When she told me that, I had to work hard to restrain myself from making a snarky comment about how it seems that every time she hears that I am thinking about doing something, that she immediately has to say she is thinking about doing the same thing, but it is always “up a notch” as if to make herself look like she is better than me.
I’m thinking about telling her that I’m going to have some exotic body art work done, and see if she runs right out and does it first, and then not do it myself at all – just for a good laugh at her expense!
I must be suffering from serious brain cramps. This morning I heard the news people on the Today Show talking about how Daylight Savings Time is going to start this Sunday, March 9th. For some reason I thought I was hearing things! Daylight savings time already? For some reason I was thinking that did not start this early in the year, that it was some time in April. Seems to me I remember several years ago “they” decided to slowly extend the amount of time that “is” daylight savings time, by starting it earlier and ending it later, but boy, did this creep up on me, or what? So I thought I was hearing things, and went to look at the calendar hanging on the wall. Sure enough, it is true, this Sunday it is!
I decided to go online and see when it started last year and found that it was early March then, too. And the year before that, and before that, and before that, and before that…… Now I am really concerned about my sanity! I guess some of my brain cells that stored that memory have died of old age, or neglect, one or the other! When did my life get so hectic that facts like these get shoved aside and forgotten?
Back when I was in school, taking band, there was no such thing as a silent electric instrument of any kind. At least, not that I’m aware of! When a kid decided to learn how to play an instrument, everyone in the house got to listen the that kid practice, whether they wanted to hear it or not! I was really pleasantly surprised recently when I learned that almost any and every instrument ever made now seems to have a silent version – like the silent electric yamaha violin at WWBW that I found online a few minutes ago. I think that it’s fantastic that now people can learn how to play an instrument without driving everyone in the house crazy!
A good friend of mine is celebrating her birthday today. She doesn’t usually make a big deal about it, but I found out last year and made a note on my calendar so I wouldn’t forget. It’s not a big “0″ year, but it’s her special day. So, Happy Birthday, Donna! I hope you have a wonderful day!
When Sandy told me that she was going to go online and order four boxes of rico alto sax reeds I told her that I thought she was crazy! There are twenty-five reeds in a box! One hundred reeds sounds like a life-time supply to me! But she told me that she has a couple of friends that will buy some off of her, and that she found them at a good price, and doesn’t want to take the chance of missing out on the good deal. She reminded me of the old adage “strike while the iron is hot.” I still think she’s crazy.
