Kissing in the Rain

Normally I don't like romantic things because they are dumb.

Yes, you can quote me on that.

But I just watched this short YouTube series and it's absolutely adorable.

So, loyal readers, watch these videos as they are cute.

And because of this, and some other things, I have started working again on my big romance novel. Don't worry, it will be full of cliche dribble.

Oh, there is a second half to this series with different actors. While still cute, I didn't find them as endearing as these ones. But they are still worth a watch.

And since I'm pimping out my blog to a good chunk of their videos, go check out Shipwrecked Comedy's kickstarter - Edgar Allan Poe's Murder Mystery Dinner Party

Adventures in Baking!


Today is Valentine's Day. 
Therefore, my aunt and I decided to make cookies.
It turned out a lot more hilarious that we anticipated.

It's just cookie dough.
You see anything else, blame your own dirty mind.
So... yeah... 
Note to readers: when making a pink cookie... you should probably use a lot more food coloring.

They just need some frosting.
But everything turned out alright in the end.

I really don't have anything else to say. I just wanted to share the laughs we had while baking today.

WANTED: One piano player to work with shy soprano

I am looking for an accompanist.

Let's take a step back.

I consider myself a singer. I went to school for voice. I like singing. All that jazz and whatnot.

However, I have terrible stage fright. I don't know what it is about singing on stage, but I just can't do it. I clam up. I squeak. I am just pretty bad.

However however, I wish to belong to the Sarah Brightman School of Performance. This is something I came up with several years ago. If you don't know Sarah Brightman, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!

Just LOOK at her!
This is Sarah Brightman and she is my queen. -->

She has a gorgeous voice and never wears pants. Which is why I joke that the SBSoP's motto is "Cantate magnum, sine aliqua." That translates to "Sing big, without pants."

I'm funny.

Anyway, I'm getting off track. I am thinking about setting up a vocal recital for myself because I never got to do one in college. It's a long story, but that doesn't matter now.

What matters is that I would like to do one now and I need an accompanist, but the ones I know do not live around here, and the ones that live around here I do not know.

Sad face!

So if you know someone, please let me know. I'm looking to do some standards, some pop tunes, a few musical numbers, and maybe an aria if I feel up to it.

Grandma's 86th Birthday Bash!

So sweet ol' grandma-ma turned 86 this past Monday.
We had a party for her on Sunday as Mom had to work and I had to babysit the nieces that Monday.

Here are some pictures...

J and P coloring.
Photobombing J!
Me and gram-gram
Mom and her grandkids
Aunt P and grams
Gram-ma-ma and Mom
GG and the nieces
And one more for show.

I know I've been writing a lot about my grandmother recently, but seriously she's really the only thing going on in my life right now.

And that makes me a little sad.

On the other hand... I may have gotten the perfect picture of her.
