Further Random Musings

I am going to have to apologize once again and again another time pre-emptively. I've been absent due to an enormously busy schedule, and the pre-emptive apology is that I'm afraid I don't see a possibility of posting anything deep or insightful until this weekend. My apologies to my bored friends who check my site 5 times a day. :)

Here are some random thoughts that have occurred to me over the last few days:

1. Josh Groban could sing a Britney Spears song and still sound utterly, breathtakingly profound.  (Though, Josh, please don't ever attempt that.)

2. I now know why the phrase, "Shut up and sing" is so relevant. If one is a good musician, one spends great deals of time, mainly all day, practicing, honing, recording one's musical gift. That leaves very little time, if any, to actually be informed about real goings on. Therefore, musicians should stick to their day job and "Shut up and sing." I say this now with first hand knowledge; I haven't read the news in over a week. That's the longest I've ever gone. All because of piano. And I'm not touring. So how much more informed could the Dixie Chicks really be?

3. Children have to be the best and most annoying form of entertainment in the world. I was at a birthday party with 7 kids all under the age of 9, and I don't remember any time when I've laughed so hard. It was like 7 little sitcoms going on at once. They make such great material for screenplays, which I someday hope to pen, in my spare time, of course.

Well, I'm spent. I literally can't think of anything else to write. This is a first. Have a great rest of the week folks. If you don't hear from me in 4 days....wait longer. :)
