Halloween follow up--at least it's not Half-Halloween. . .yet.

I know it's been forever--but I figured I'd finally publish this. . .





A playlist of fun stuff.

This year so far, I sang a beautiful acapella version of Joseph Smith's First Prayer, a vampy rendition of Poor Unfortunately Souls (from the Little Mermaid), and sang back-up with my friend's band in a bar on Valentine's (I also sang two as lead--Bewitched bothered and bewildered and Sunday kind of Love. The cute doorman said I did a good job--so must have. Enjoy!

Getting in the Halloween Spirit

So, I started re-watching Buffy Halloween episodes to get me into the Halloween spirit.

And tonight, I'm hitting the Depot in Hillsborough for open mic night. . .

There will be some witchy tunes for you to enjoy. . .





And either a surprise for B, or this one:



See you tonight. And I'll put up video if there is anyone there to record. Spooky times for all. . .

We used to play the same pizza-parlor pinball

Went with B to Vienna Teng on Saturday night, and it was amazing. Emerson Hart opened for her, and he was fantastic, too (I was able to re-live this high school moment--oddly, I still remember all the lyrics perfectly).

My friend S introduced me to her shortly after I moved to NC--over 10 years ago now. I mistakenly thought she was from North Carolina, due to a line in the only song that I really wanted her to play.



And when she played it, I was supremely happy. But all the songs she played were an experience. I've been meaning to see her in person for years, and I am extremely glad I did. If only for a few of these:








And my favorite Encore which was amazing live:



I am definitely going to have to see her again. It was so worth it.

Book of Mormon Scripture Mastery Yoga

I know it has been awhile. I'm the seminary teacher for the NC School of Science & Math this year and we're a little over two weeks in (1 Nephi 8). It's still early morning, but I get to wake up at 5:00am instead of 4:45am. But for those of you waiting--Book of Mormon Scripture Mastery Yoga is here.

Thanks again to AP for being a wonderful Yogi.

Edited: To fix 2 Nephi 25:23, 26

An ode to a bumble bee


A tizzy tempest in the house.
Buzzing wildly but from where?
Stuck in the window?
Bumping against the bathroom mirr'r?
Screeching throughout the house.
To be found nowhere.

Giving up, head for the couch, relax into--
Stabbing pain, tiny swords from somewhere near.
Low light, jump up, search for the source.
Wretched agony. Giant bumble. Quarter-sized, maybe bigger.

Death to the creepy crawly. Stuck me twice.
Not remembered since summers at twelve, massive pain--sore and rare.
Stupid fuzzy bug, now I have two giant welts.
One the size and shape of a pear
Upon my derriere.
