My last entry was so darn interesting. I think my hub fell asleep in the middle of it. Luckily he had to wake up to go watch basketball championships.
Speaking of watching things, we got to see the revival of "Hair" this weekend. (My idea.) I love the music (it's both unique and funny, always a plus in musicals). But it's among the many musicals that's 96 percent music and little spoken word in between, so if you're not into that type, you might wanna skip it. And there was...wait for it...nudity! Nudity! Nudity! (Full frontal, too.)
I think I tend to love the songs more than the actual plots of most musicals. Here's my horrible confession: I've liked the movie versions of the Sound of Music, Annie, and Oklahoma way more than when I saw the stage shows on Broadway.
I really did like Sweet Charity on Broadway, though. Never saw the movie version (if there was one), but my high school put it on when I was a sophomore. The star was Colleen Fitzpatrick, AKA pop star "Vitamin C", believe it or not. Somehow, in my humdrum central Joisey h.s., we had a few stars come out.
Sounds like a plan
I just read this article about the Japanese. Sad:
"There were 2,645 suicides recorded in January 2009, a 15 percent increase from the 2,305 for January 2008, according to the Japanese government.
The Japanese government said suicide rates are a priority and pledged to cut the number of suicides by more than 20 percent by 2016."
A case just appeared in the news in Utah where 47-year-old teacher admitted she was having sex with a 13-year-old boy for about a month. She then found out another teacher in the same school had been having sex with him the month before that!! Neither of them knew about each other (they found out later). They must have been jea-lllllous.
What is going on here? Not one but TWO teachers risking their careers (and jail-free lives) for some kid?
Who is this kid? He must have some moves!!! Most guys don't know how to seduce a woman until they're about 40.
Update: A male reader writes:
"He is a 13 year old boy. He is a victim of female sexual child predators. Would you have made that comment if it was a 13 year old girl and the teachers were men? Of course you wouldn’t have said any such thing about the girl’s moves. Said nothing about a 13 girl hitting on her male teachers.
You’re comment is a classic example of how too many people believe that only a man can be a sexual predator. I find the comment off the wall. You just made the victim of sexual assault the criminal. You claim that he was hitting on them! Excuse me? You have it all backwards."
Am I not the only one who hears similarities? (Listen to each for at least 35 seconds...)
Today we're scrounding for a meal
Today I'm stealing coal for fires
Who knew i could steal?
I used to winter in the tropics
I spent my summers at the shore
I used to throw away the paper--
We don't anymore!
We'd like to thank you: Herber Hoover
For really showing us the way
We'd like to thank you: Herbert Hoover
You made us what we are today
Prosperity was 'round the corner
The cozy cottage built for two
In this blue heaven
That you gave us
Yes! We're turning blue!
We paid attention and we chose
Not only did we pay attention
We paid through the nose.
In ev'ry pt he said "a chicken"
But Herbert Hoover he forgot
Not only don't we have the chicken
We ain't got the pot!
You left behind a greatful nation
So, Herb, our hats are off to you
We're up to here with admiration
Come down and have a little stew
Come down and share some Christmas dinner
Be sure to bring the missus too
We got no turkey for our stuffing
We'd like to thank you, Herbert Hoover
For really showing us the way
You dirty rat, you Bureaucrat, you
Made us what we are today
Come and get it, Herb!
