“Add Some Rum but Just a Drop, Then It’s Time to Stop.”

Our Winter concert went really well! We sang our hearts out and we won the crowd, Maximus. I ordered a CD of the concert, so I’ll be able to pick that up in January.

During our “Fruitcake” song (which I think the audience really enjoyed – I could hear some chuckling in the audience over some of the lyrics), our director, T, put on a chef’s hat and then looked at us with a serious expression, which cracked us up and got us all relaxed. I loved that song even more.

Someone presented T with a gift after our last song, and I think it was a little hippo figurine since we sang the song, “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas”. He was so psyched over that gift that he had us sing that song again. It was an encore presentation. We were so happy and ready because the last three songs were more deep and meaningful than fun. To sing a crazy song again before we left for the season was a bonus.

I’m on vacation for most of this week. I have to work for a half day on Thursday, but I don’t really take that too seriously. I’ll work, but it might be one of those fun, goofy days. Two things my mom ordered for our family finally came in, so we’re all officially done and ready for the holiday! I am ready for Christmas. I hope all of you are too!

    CyberPete: Hi! Thank you so much! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I prefer to sing in a group rather than sing solo, but I may give that another shot too.

    Eros: I hope you had an awesome Christmas! I’m sorry about the comments disappearing; WordPress did it again and put your comments in the Spam folder!
