First off, today is “Scan a Receipt Day (Scan a Receipt of Something You Bought Today)”. Well I did not buy anything today, but I bought some stuff yesterday. Here is part of the receipt:
As you can see from the evidence, ladies and gentlemen, I bought a good iron (unlike the pretty but flimsy failure I had at home that would leak and spit each time I tried to use the ‘steam’ option), a new cover for my ironing board and some nice clothes. Now ya know!
– Okay, so a few other things to share…I put some DVDs and books up for sale on Amazon during the weekend, and within a day I sold four DVDs! Yuss! I didn’t put up much money for them, because I noticed that other people who put up “used” products didn’t ask much either. So the good way to get rid of my stuff was to put things up cheaper than those others. I think I made about $10! Not too shabby, people. I’m pleasantly surprised. So those are all ready to get shipped out tomorrow.
– Choir practice started tonight after a little break from our Winter concert. Things were a little weird, the Cackler sat next to me this time. It was actually much better than having her in back of me. Plus, we chatted a bit and then we put our music down together and mixed them all up. So for a while during choir we sounded like we were playing “Go Fish”. “Do you have two of this or two of that?” “No! Go Fish!” Actually we did get things all sorted out. She also called me a “bad influence” which pleased me.
– I was ecstatic to see that we’ll be singing two songs from the Walt Disney version of “The Lion King”. We’ll sing “The Circle of Life” and…brace yourselves…”Hakuna Matata”. I expect a meercat and warthog to be singing along with us. We’re also singing songs from “Godspell”, “Jekyll and Hyde” (we performed a medley from this musical with another choir director, so I suddenly feel more experienced than the Cackler – she noticed me humming some of the tunes and told me I will need to hum them near her ear because she doesn’t know those songs) and “Beauty and the Beast”. There will be other songs, but I was just beside myself with geeky happiness that I knew I had to share it with all of you.
-Oh and I was able to pick up the CD of our concert tonight! Remember how I told you that I get all critical about how I think we sound in front of the audience? It was hogwash. I need to stop listening to my inner critic, because we really did sound nice! So I’m happy. Thank goodness, right? ;)
