Blogging just hasn't climbed the most important things list (neither has laundry) but I have been taking time for some great silliness.
My cousin, Charlotte, started something last year that may have blown up in her face. It is called Midwinter Musical Madness. She has an AMAZING knowledge of musicals and awards points that actually count for something.
My musical knowledge is basically limited to Phantom, Les Mis, Jekyll and Hyde, Scarlett Pimpernel, and any that have been made into really well known movies like Annie, The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins and the like. I do know more songs, but don't know the musical they are from or I will know the names of musicals but not any of the songs. So, as you may have guessed, I'm not typically the winner in this competition (Melissa kicks my trash up and down the pitch, field, court - yup, all of them).
But what is fun is that there are whim points. If you are funny, thoughtful, ridiculous or just desperate, you can get points. That I can do.
I'm telling you about this in case, like me, you are procrastinating what you should be doing by reading blogs and telling you, if you want a good laugh, maybe to jump in (the lightning round is still coming up) or just to have fun wasting time, go here. You won't be disappointed, but you have to read the comments to really enjoy the full experience.
