The Storm

#1 Son played for a big crowd last night, as the back up band for a kind of GLEE club group that's been around for half a century.  Lots of history in this group, so first things first.  Respect.
BUT, moving on now to the cold hard facts---this glee club music is pretty abysmal.  Extreme gestures, inappropriate facial expressions, dumb medleys, goofy choreography. At one point, the conductor turned to the crowd and yelled out, "Positive Messages!"  20 Something Daughter burst out in a loud cackle.  #1 Son doesn't like this kind of music, but he handled the job like a champ, rehearsing for a gazillion hours with the group this semester and it was fun to watch him play in the auditorium to so many happy peeps. I don't understand why people like Glee Club music, but a crowd in the thousands last night showed me that a lot of people truly do.

Storm's a brewin'. May see quite a bit of snow tonight.  Not thrilled, ttytt, but what can you do?  If we get a snow day tomorrow, I can work on filling out the forms I didn't fill out yet today.  But we also will have to go to school for an extra day, which I can't handle right now.

I kind of like the snow. The snow says, Go Hoosiers.

I hope the Hoosiers continue to win even though I'm rooting against all other Big Ten teams (even Minnesota). Iowa State lost today in a close game, so I'm a bit sad.

I think I love Glee Club music. I might like it. Sorry about that.

I'm with KC. I enjoy the Glee Club music. I'm a sucker for musicals. I loved watching KC in her school's talent show. I even heard one of those songs in a store today and I was snapping my fingers to it.
But more importantly, love love LOVE the pic of Ros and Quinn. Love it!!!

I was in show choir in high school, so I'm a fan. Also, was convinced we'd have a snow day. Paying for it this morning with my lack of complete plans.

I have been known to participate in Glee Clubs myself. And I had a blast. But I am not hurt when people hate that kind of music. I get it.

I'm a karaoke girl, so you know I like the Glee music. The show, however, hasn't impressed me too much, but I do love a good "smash-up."

I guess I'm just not that into positive messages. There were songs about having courage and hope, standing up and making a change, ending world hunger and paying off the debt of all nations, All great ideas, but annoying in a way too.
