I weigh myself in the same spot on the bathroom floor at pretty much the same time every day, but if I move the scale I can get a different number — hence, the "possibly more." (A pound and a half!)
Anyway. I am happy!
In other news, last night's Broadway Bound Show Chorus class was so freaking fun!! Our first week, we had seven people, and two more were no-shows. That is a very small group, and our teacher Mr. C encouraged us to invite some friends to join. I'd already coaxed my Theater Mom pal to do it with me, but then we did our dance number for Kind Tina and she was "mesmerized" (that was my impression, anyway), so we got her to join as well.
The next week, Theater Mom, Kind Tina, and I were there, also April Shimmy came back and brought her friend La Linda — and that was it. Nobody else came back! The no-shows remained invisible! We are a show chorus of five!!!!
I think Mr. C was kind of stunned, and of course I felt terrible for him – but if you're keeping track, I've already provided more than 50% of the class, what more can I do? I'm just one girl!
But the five of us are tightly bonding and having a blast together. Last night, class 3, we actually started to "get" it. April Shimmy, as her name suggests, is also taking a burlesque class, and she is inspiring us to let loose and get jiggy wit it.
Theater Mom had a great suggestion for the altos; we are struggling to hit the "high" notes and sing harmony in Edelweiss, so Mr. C simply switched the parts; we are now singing the melody an octave lower, which is so much easier!
The five of us left together, and in the stairwell April Shimmy commented that the acoustics were great in here. I promptly launched into All That Jazz: "Start the car, I know a whoopee spot / Where the ice is cold and the pianuh's hot." Everyone joined in and we sang our whole song as we headed downstairs. Then April showed us how to do a "burlesque walk," which morphed into the Jets' opening number in West Side Story.
|I call dibs on Ice!|
We have to miss a class in two weeks because our teachers are doing teacher conferences at the middle school on that night, so I've invited the ladies to my house to practice our dance and drink wine. "And afterward we can sing show tunes together!" said La Linda, which I enthusiastically agreed to. What total fun!!!!! Yet another cool thing to look forward to.
Oh, I love my life! And all - that - ja-ee-azzz!!!
