Hey everybody. I know you're probably all sad because we're not having the green leaf tea sale and Keith is being sent up to Canada by Maryann so I thought it would be fun to lighten things up a little.
Who doesn't like Julie Andrews right? Especially Victor Victoria which was great and taught us to respect transgendered peoples, but even some of her earlier stuff like My Fair Lady (which is so old-fashioned with the nuns in habits and all but still kind of cute because it is anti-fascist and has lots of good songs like "I Feel Pretty"). Anyway, I don't know if you remember but there was a song in My Fair Lady where professor Higgins had locked all the kids up in a room and Julie Andrews was teaching them how to sing and there was a big storm. This is before she made the curtains into play clothes for the kids. Somehow she ends up going to the horse races and a ball or something, I can't remember. Anyway the song was called My Favorite Things. So if you feel bad you're supposed to think about them and then you feel good.
So here's my list in no particular order: Julia Roberts, e. e. cummings, musicals, Robert Mugabe, green leaf tea, a group of people throwing stones and rocks at the G-8 meeting, Queen, Prince and the Revolution, John F. Kennedy, the Beatles, Tibetan Peace Flags, Toyota Prius, poems by Nikki Giovanni, marshmallows, warm socks on a cold day, Dorothy and Doris Day (they were sisters I think), dew on a microbus as it's parked near an outdoor concert, Avril Lavinge ( I cannever spell her name right!), black berets and red backpacks, Hugo Chavez, jeans with patches on the knees, Harry Belafonte!
I feel a lot better. You should try it!
