Wow - such great news from DR ELMORE and DR JOHNG

Rent vibes for DR JMK.

I have started reading a new book today which is turning out to be most wonderful......I shall recommend it by title when I finish it later today.

What school? What program?

Are you getting an assistantship?
I'm going to SUNY-Empire State, which is an online program to get a master's in liberal studies with a dual focus on education and communications. I hope to teach with the degree.

Now that I have been accepted, I can start looking to see if there's any aid out there.

Thank you, JRand, George, Elmore and JMK. It's one less thing to worry about -- and a whole new world of things to worry about (but in a good way).

I forgot "Finian's" from my list. That's a great new one from this year.

And now, I must be off.  I'm picking up my friend Margo from the airport, and then we must hurry back to Olympia to work the aforementioned Sing-Along Messiah tonight.

I hope the traffic cooperates!

Until later!

Resume vibes for DR FJL.

DR MBARNUM just sent me the 1964 Japanese Recording of Annie Get Your Gun, which I am sure will be a NEW favorite of mine.




And you will note that the lead actor/singer is Akira Takarada, best known as the leading man in GODZILLA KING OF THE MONSTERS, GODZILLA VS. THE THING, MONSTER ZERO, and numerous other Toho Studio sci-fi and samurai flicks! He has an excellent singing voice, I might add!

Richard and I are back to being a one-car couple for a week, so we've just returned from a couple of hours of errands.  Except for a stop at Kenwood Towne Center on our way to a dinner in Cincinnati tomorrow and a stop at Barnes & Noble on the way home, we're now finished with Christmas shopping.  We also went to the grocery for what I hope will be the last big shopping before the holiday weekend.  With that coming up and with two rounds of bad weather predicted for this week, it was pretty crazy there already.

It's great to find good news from DRs Elmore (checks) and John G (grad school) upon my return!

Safe and easy travel vibes for my DS Craig as he makes his way to Olympia!

Jane, if DS Craig isn't busy tonight, tell him to come to the Washington Center for the Performing Arts and attend (or even participate in) the Sing-Along Messiah.  It's free!  I'm working concessions (which are not free, though) so I will be there. :)

Join us in a community sing-a-long!  Come to sing, come to listen as we delight in Handel's Messiah, a local tradition!  Brought to you by Student Orchestras of Greater Olympia and The Washington Center for the Performing Arts.

If he's not busy tonight.

:D

I shall email this to him.  I suspect once he arrives, checks into a hotel and eats dinner he will crash for the night.

Just got a hearty, much needed laugh.  I get reports about what search queries are used to find my FF article, and someone got there by asking, "WTF was wrong with Frances Farmer".  ;)

;D

I am not amused.

Unless it's an emergency, my doctor is on vacation this week and has no free time next week. Nor is there any free time for any physician covering her vacation week. And my insurance is going up $100/month in January.

Did you ask to be put on a waiting list?  I also suggest calling every day to see if there is an opening.

I am going to be sore.

I decided to go to the pool and do 1 hour aqua fitness and 30minutes of laps.

Good for you.  I should do the same.

I have to make a trip to the LoC in the first weeks of January. It should be interesting as long as I don't run into the lady who made LIFE BEGINS AT 8:40 such hell.
