Well People, It's Tuesday, which has apparently become my day for:
NAME THIS CELEBRITY
Can you guess who she is? (An actual MOVIE star people) She's actually VERY nice, NOT "superbad". And she's no "house bunny". And if you must know, we actually housesat for her parents when she was younger. I've slept in her bed (NOT with her in it of course). Jere did a show with her back in the day, and she's gone on to do VERY well for herself. I'm telling you now, it is so wierd to open People magazine or Entertainment Weekly and read a feature on someone you KNOW as a friend, or a little girl, or whatever.
Now GET WITH ME and tell me who you think it is.
Last weeks WAS Jordin Sparks!
Alright, with that out of the way, we may move on to my OWN little celebrity in the making. I'm telling you people, Maggie has a FUTURE in the song writing business. The other morning as I was working on something, paying bills or whatever, she sat at the piano and came up with 5 1/2 NEW and "fabulous" songs. As soon as I realized this was not a quick little sing and run I stoppped and pulled out an envelope and pen and started writing as fast as I could, so I would NEVER lose these total "gems". This was an extra special event, because she wasn't JUST sitting and singing at the piano. No, she was giving a concert, replete with audience banter and stories to be told. She would "explain" why this particular song was special, and share a little thought with me. Then, she would stand and do actions to her songs. I'm not gonna lie, it was probably one of the most AWESOME moments YET to be a Mom. I mean, you know, I complain A LOT about her and her super sassy mouth (which trust me, has only gotten worse) and her strong will. She is exhausting and hard, but I'll be danged if she doesn't just take my breath away and make me laugh too. Oh, before I forget....she now asks me before she says ANY word if it's a "bad word." So this morning she asked me, "Mom is shoot a bad word?" I said "no." And then she proceeded to walk around saying, "shoot, why did you do that?" "SHOOT, I can't believe it." She has repeatedly asked me if butt or crap are bad words too. I told her that those depended on how they were used. But each time she asks, and if I tell her it's NOT a bad word, she will then go around saying it as many times as she can. Pretty funny.
Ok, without further ado...I give you the next songwriter/lyricist of the year......Maggie VP: (and people, FORGIVE me, but I don't have any clean dvd's to record on, nor my cam corder just at the ready, I apologize)
Sometimes I don't feel good. Sometimes I don't feel good. Sometimes I don't feel good. Sometimes I don't feel good. Sometimes I don't feel good. Sometimes I don't feel goooooood.
(each time the melody line changed a bit, and vibrato was definitely attempted)
Get on the potty and wash your hands and wipe your bum, and wipe your butt. And, if you like that....always go potty. THERE!!!!
Upon finishing that song, she turned from the keyboard and said; "Mommy, this is a very special song, and I like what to sing it for you."
It's great for your body. It's great for your body. (I think she derailed here, 'cause this was all for this particular song, hence the 1/2 song)
Now, for two of my favorites. They were sung with very specific actions, which included hands on the hips, hands upraised and out at her sides, arms moving with strong emphasis and sweeping out to the sides on all held out notes.
Belle is really great dancer (X3) (emphasis on dancer with that word held out with vibrato)
and she's a movie. She's really great. She's a movie. Belle your an awesome dancer. Your a movie. And she starts with EEEEEEEEEEE.
(people, who does NOT recognize the lyric genius here? hahahahaha)
Cinderella you're awesome, you're a movie. You're really great at dancing with a prince come true. And I love you.
And that my friends concludes our lyrics class with Maggie VP.
When I tried to tell my Mom about it the next day, maggie caught me telling her. She stopped me and said, "NO, it went like this." And then proceeded to exactly replicate her "song" for my Mom. Seriously? That was awesome!
Alright, now some bidness responding to blog comments:
Thank you for coming and reading my blog daily, and especially for writing me a comment. I love blog stalkers, I love blog followers, I love you all. However, you asked a very specific question, and I found it frustrating that I couldn't answer you in any other way than to write on my blog. However...I shall answer, and then kindly ask you to just "reveal" yourself. Or just write your name at the bottom of a comment. I promise, I won't bite.
Anyway.....YES, the music theatre workshop performance IS open to the public. In fact, anyone in AZ that would like to come see the show, please do. We really do put on a GREAT performance, and the kids do a super job. All i ask is, IF you come, PlEASE find me and say hello.
Friday June 25th at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday June 26th 2:00 and 6:30 p.m.
Mesa Community college Theatre Outback. 480-461-7170 for tickets.
In other news, I'm sort of super dee duper excited because you wanna know who came and READ my blog and commented today? None other than CJANE. HELLO, blog royalty there. I know, silly to be all excited about that, but I am, none the less.
The sugar free marches onward, and all is well. Apparently my friend Andrea (hi Andrea) and Heather (hey girl) joined in the crew and are doing well. I fear everyone else, besides my Mommy, Jenny D. and Jen C. have fallen by the wayside. Ya big pansies! haha I kid. I KID! Still love ya! But, I shall persevere until the bitter end.
As clarification.....jam does not count as eating sugar. Honey nut cheerios do NOT count as eating sugar. This "sugar fast" includes, cake, cookies, doughnuts, ice cream, candy, chocolate. Basically anything super overtly SUGAR. Ok, now, are we all on the same page for the last week and 1/2 or what? Sheesh!
Those of you who DON'T watch SYTYCD.....are you kidding me? Get on it STAT! You will be a happier you for doing it. The end!
You can totally steal the memory Monday idea. Goodness knows, you have some rockin fro hair to show off, and some hysterical life memories. AND for the love, you have the most famous "friends" of all. So, I'll totally come over with my AMAZING little red scanner and we'll just get your life scanned and ready to go.
Some of us FOLLOW the gym rules and do NOT have our phones with us, or in use whilst sweatin to the oldies. Thankyouverymuch. Duh! But, even if I did, my phone is NOT so much for the picture taking. But thank you for your two cents worth anyway. : )
Therefore, and consequently, let it be known that there shall not be ANY pictures of crazy gym people. (Totes saw floral spandex lady at Walmart this morning).
And finally, as my confession for the day....
I went to Walmart at 6:30 a.m. INSTEAD of going to the gym. I know right? What the hell? Well, Max dumped my ENTIRE thing of powder out yesterday and I needed more before getting ready. And, we needed milk and cheesesticks (my kids LIVE for cheesesticks) and apparently I needed yogurt and fruitsnacks and cream cheese, and new cleaning rags and a new dish washer thing and various and sundry OTHER items. Seriously, so crazy. But, the biggest reason I had to go in the morning....'cause I got distracted last night and didn't go. Instead....
I spent the most FABULOUS, WONDERFUL, SOUL FILLER UPPY 2 hours sitting in my friend Jenees kitchen, chatting and laughing and enjoying time with her. It was absolutely EVERYTHING I needed. Thank you Jenee for being there, and giving me salsa (you could drink her delicious stuff) and pasta salad and potatoes and music to sing and genuine friendship. You're the GREATEST!!! I'm a lucky girl!
Alright, long enough already?!!!
Peace out (what max yells everytime we get in the car to leave) and pasta,
