My brain is working a bit strange these days, under the influence of cold medication and general exhaustion and stuffiness. I feel I must blog and so I do, with no rhyme or reason, or feelings of responsibility to/for what comes out.
I’m going to a super sweet sixteen this weekend for my cousin Gabby. I received an invitation in the mail that was sent in a little blue box and I was told that it is a ‘Tiffany-inspired’ birthday party. Well then. She’s only inviting 80 of her closest friends so I feel privileged to even get an invite. I’ve also been told there is a special surprise in store for the birthday girl. I really hope it’s Justin Beiber.
Yesterday, I stayed home from work to nurse my cold and I saw the episode of “Little House On Prairie” in which Mary goes blind. Wow. I mean…just…wow. That’s all I can say. Those were some very serious times on the prairie. I’m not sure how I survived it, never mind the Ingalls’. I mean seriously, one day your eyes hurt and the next day you’re blind? Is that how it works?
Speaking of blindness, I once thought Mandy Patinkin was blind because he had to wear these really big glasses whenever he performed. But it turned out that he had a corneal transplant because he was legally blind in his left eye.
And does anyone remember Nancy Kerrigan’s mother? She was legally blind and she used to watch Nancy perform from the stands watching this television that always looked very fuzzy to me. I never understood it. Do you look at fuzzy things but it looks clear?
Guess what? On May 20th, I’m going to see Linda Eder at the Town Hall. I’m obsessed with her beautiful singing voice and I’ve been waiting for the dates and times and places to all line up so I can finally see her. And they finally did. I am so excited, I can barely stand it. You should watch this video of her singing ‘Man of La Mancha’ (below). Because you can be a woman and be Don Quixote if you’re Linda Eder. That’s just how it works.
Please feel free to share your feelings on any subject what-so-ever in the comments.
