Last night it was my friend's birthday. I ended up going to this concert by Leslie Gore. It was actually pretty fun. I didn't really know who she was initially - but I recognized several of her songs. She had some new ones, that were actually pretty good. But it was kind of sad seeing someone who really made the big time reduced to playing in these little off beat towns where half the people there are over 100 years old and they only remember 2 of her songs...then after she came out to do signings and my friend practically stalked her. She used an entire roll of film (yeah - I said roll...). It was weird but really funny.


When I was googling her Disney came up for some reason and it reminded me of when we were little we went to Disney Land. We got stuck in the Small World ride - for about 3 hours. The music doesn't exactly change much AT ALL. The puppets look a little luck Chucky at the beginning but you are scooting through fast enough that true terror doesn't take hold. After several hours, however, of little dancing creatures that look vaguely like Eskimos - they start to look truly evil. Horrible trauma...and the music sounds like the stuff nightmares are made of.

I can't believe you still like Disney after an experience like that.

Disney IS evil.

And did you put some grey hairs on your meez or did you get highlights?

Kat - me too... daily.

earl - No highlights - I think I must be using a really fancy meez conditioner and it's just really shiny.
