(is still beating) I think from now on I am going to give all my posts titles of songs from Huey Lewis & The News. And by "from now on" I mean until I get tired of it, which will probably be tomorrow.
My friend completed her first triathlon this weekend! Not only was she in the top half of her age group, she was in the top half of all participants! I am so impressed! You have to train so hard for such a long period of time to be able to complete a triathlon- just completing all that training would impress me. Anyway, I am proud of her and glad she had so much fun doing it!
You know how some blogs have interesting stories? I should try that some time.
H had never seen The Sound of Music until this weekend. I have actually owned the DVD for several years because it is my favorite movie and my sister gave it to me as a gift. I had a very bad week last week. So bad that several of the partners I work with and a couple of assistants on my floor asked me several times if I was doing ok, and H told me, and I quote, "You look like hell." Thanks, honey! Anyway, I was just really stressed out. H was concerned when on Thursday I was yelling about EVERYTHING and almost crying. On Friday night, he brought Chinese food home and told me that he wanted to watch The Sound of Music with me. I was annoyed that he thought one movie would make me feel better. But then we watched it, and by the time Maria was leaving the convent to go to the Von Trapps house, I was feeling 10 times better. During "My Favorite Things" and "Do-Re-Mi," H exclaimed, "That song is from this movie?!" Oh, H, I am so glad that I could educate you in the ways of The Sound of Music. He didn't even know it was based on a true story!
The two most hilarious parts of The Sound of Music:
1. After Liesl and Rolf sing "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" and they kiss, Liesl comes out of the gazebo and screams like a banshee. It is so scary that it makes me crack up.
2. At Maria's wedding, she walks down the aisle to the song, "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria." Why didn't she just walk down the aisle to the nuns yelling, "You suck!" "Good luck, Captain Von Trapp. That beeyotch is crazy!"
