L is better, now it's Z's turn to be sick. (Ug. If they're all going to be sick, I'd kinda rather it all be at once.) I'm sure that Z just wasn't washing his hands when he was changing L's dipe, since this bug is not contagious at all. (That's sarcasm toward the dr.--don't worry, he's not changing dipes.) It was a rough night. : I forecast another day where I feel like I've gotten nothing done. : (I suppose there *is* value in comforting sick children, though.) We had to cancel a playdate with a friend who used to live here but moved to CA who is back visiting... seemed like it wouldn't be fair to infect her kids so they'll scream in pain in the middle of the night like mine have, especially while they're on vacation. (Translation: *I* am not sick anymore, so why can't *I* have some fun yet? )

I give up on the 20 questions. It seems like we're not going to guess the exact details of this one.

I was the school-wide Science Bowl champion. My biology teacher said that he would challenge the winner to a one-on-one duel. I won. He didn't stand a chance beacause I was faster with the little buzzer thing. Ha! It's the reason I now have a degree in Biology (I thought I would be a HS biology teacher myself one day).

I am feeling less and less sure about this Claudia secret...I thought I had it with the talent show/choir ideas. Could you give us a hint?
post #284 of 441
well, it was a "choir" of sorts, but more of a "group". also, there is a preponderance of these "groups" in the small, new england liberal arts colleges, but this was a high school one.

dang, i wish i had some youtube footage...

DING DING DING DING DING! YES!

so the story (may be brief because stefan mr. resistant to sleeping in the heat today is starting to wake up)...

our junior high was 7-8-9th grades and the senior high (literally up the hill from the junior high) was 10-11-12th grades. there was an all female a cappella group at the senior high, and i auditioned for it when i was at the end of ninth grade for the following year. it was very intimidating but also totally fun. some of the girls in the group were of the hippie/crunchy sort, while others were of the very prim and proper but most likely with the beers and the weed on occasion. anyway, great group of women.

and i GOT IN!!! it was super fun!

i was in it for the whole 3 years i was in senior high, and we performed at some nursing homes, caroling around town at holiday times, for our yearly variety show and for graduation. oh, and once for homecoming.

my favorite song that we sang was james taylor's lonesome road. it still gives me chills.

i wish i had a recording of some of the stuff we sang.

i desperately wanted to be in an a cappella group in college, but dang, they were seriously competitive at my university. i auditioned first, second and third year and even made it to call backs the last time, but i abandoned it the last year because it was too much heartbreak and i was involved with lots of other exciting things already.

but i still love the a cappella.

questions that i didn't answer? hit me.

oooh, that sounds like so much fun (even for non-musical me), but I don't think I've ever heard a girls' acapella group. That was a tough one! Go, Lisa!!
post #297 of 441
HOw fun, Claudia! I see absolutely nothing make-fun-of-able about that. Now, being in a GLEE CLUB, there is mega ridicule fodder there.

Very fun! Neato!!! Thanks for sharing.

it's not the having been in an a cappella group that he makes fun of. he wanted to be in one at his college, too, and we both love the arrogant singing white boys and the attempting to be percussion chicks white girls mized in with the occasional really, really good vocalists. we own way too many collegiate a cappella recordings. so it's not the group thing he makes fun of. it's the slightly condescending way he looks at me and makes passive aggressive comments about my actual singing voice and when i hit a note slightly sharp or flat or don't remeber a phrase or a word or make it up instead. it's just icky and i don't want it to affect me the way it does, but it does. so i just don't sing in front of him. or marek. or stefan. that makes me sad. :

Boo hiss to Bill! I'm sure you sing great. He wouldn't EVEN want to hear me... And making up your own words- I SO DO THAT!! There used to be a commercial in our area for a radio station with people fudging the words to songs they loved but couldn't understand... "Sugar Pie Honey Butt..." Something like that...
