Random slash dot madness

I can't remember what, exactly CRSE calls these, but I am documenting my short attention span with the following random thoughts:

-crazy stuff on PBS, bad early seventies musical special. I cannot stand Jethro Tull, and watching them perform does not improve the experience. By the same token, I have to give props to the band geek that parlayed his flute playing into an actual position of power in a successful rock band. Still creepy as hell, and creepier to watch, but jeez, talk about living a dream. The rock flute. creepy.

-I laugh and cannot believe that the rest of the country thinks all californians surf and drive convertibles to the beach, but I do the same thing. Everytime I hear about wild weather, I fret for Sayre in Florida, or Kathleen in Texas, and I worried about how CRSE was getting to AZ, and if they were dealing with shit weather along the way. Imagine my horror to read that IAI DID get the tornado experience. If Ms. Chuck admits to wild eyed anxiety, it had to be mother humming terrifying. I'm glad everyone is okay.

-But I'm sending house and health vibes to you, Sayre--feel better and let's think of a grand send off for your last weekend with the college kids--get the neighbors in on it and blast wayne newton or something equally torturous to college aged kids. Are they too old for the super high frequency that only kids can hear? If they are, I'll bet their dates aren't. Or there's a PBS special that's creepy as hell, with Jethro Tull --you probably know the one...

-Little O has become obsessed with her western shirt. I told her she was a Rodeo Queen and let her wear her tiara to the laser tag party on Sunday. Tonight she conned me into buying her an aqua blue cowgirl hat with it's own tiara attatched. Now she really IS a rodeo queen.

I too find Jethro Tull creepy..but erm..The Moody Blues had a rock flautist too...and he was kinda cool. :)

Was that guy a major figure in Moody Blues? I'm cool with the flute, it's JT that creeps me out! It gives every kid sitting through band class for years hope--I think a rock flute is a rare amazing thing. But JT is still creepy, and more so after having seen them in the flesh--even allowing for early seventies dress codes.
(Bananas will kick me out of her office if I make fun of The Moody Blues!)

Yeah, the flute isn't the norm in a rock band. Too band I didn't know that when I decided that was the instrument to play.

Hehe...rock flute. That cracks me up.

Yes, the flute player was a major player in the band. His name was Ray Thomas..and he was the one that wrote Legend Of The Mind. He's since retired from the band because of health issues. Norda Mullen plays for the band now.

Thanks!!! We do get some pretty wild weather in Florida, and I've been in a tornado (in my CAR!) when I lived in Oklahoma - pretty damned freaky, actually. I'm lucky to be here.

I do know the JTull program (I know them all, sadly...) and it did bupkiss here so we won't be airing it again. For some reason the self-help gurus like Wayne Dwyer, Suze Orman and Gary Null go gangbusters though. Mostly because our demographics are little kids and over 40. The over-40's need help (just ask ME!!!!). Since that's where the money is, that's what we program for fundraising...

I was wondering if poison ivy can be ground up to a powder and "accidently" blow into the hot tub one night... It would be a real bitch to get out too! It's quiet this week - spring break (hurray!!!!). I worked in the yard with Phil Collins and Billy Joel by my side yesterday, nary a thump from next door!

Don't give me so much credit - if I can't shoot it, I don't like it. It's a good thing I was in a bathroom b/c I had some serious fight or flight issues going on! (Google it!)
