The Trans Siberian Concert Wednesday night was excellent!  They had a spectacular light show to enhance an already outstanding musical show, complete with pyro-technics....  They saved the fire show til the last, which was good because the smoke got a little thick at the finale.  It was a 2 and a half hour show... with no intermission, just a brief period when introductions were being made then on with the show.  I think that was probably the longest my kids had ever sat together without fighting!  For those who are not familiar with the Trans Siberian Orchestra, they are more of a rock band doing their adaptation of some classical music...  And they include symphonic and orchestra instuments.  The young woman on the electric violin was awesome, especially when she dueled with the electric guitar player.  And the vocals.... oh my gosh the vocals!  There are some very big voices singing with the group, and they are spectacular!  If you have a chance to see them perform, do it!  And take the kids if you can afford it, its definately something the whole family will enjoy.

 I've been under the weather lately, or should I say 'over the throne' thanks to the Virus de jour.  I surely must be wearing a permanent imprint of my toilet seat on my derriere by now.  5 pounds folks, I lost 5 pounds, thus proving that my Miracle Weight Loss Program does work, I just don't recommend this particular method cos my bum hurts and so does my innerds!  I learned real quick how to do the Peptol Bismol Boogie ("Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea... Yeah! Pepto-Bismol!") 

Dickidoo is going to be real mad at me when he wakes up.  He kept making these weird noises while he was sleeping and I kept waking him up because I thought he was going to be sick or something.  Finally he yelled 'I'm OK!'.  I decided to sleep downstairs on the couch for 2 reasons.... First... if he DID get sick, I didn't want him to get sick on me.  And secondly, he probably would have killed me if I woke him up again.    That was scary though... we've been sleeping together for over 20 years now and I've NEVER heard him make that noise before.  I was actually relieved when he yelled at me, at least I knew he was alive!  Needless to say I'm letting him sleep in this morning.  Maybe he will forget the interruptions.

Joke of the day:
A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a fly swatter.
"What are you doing?" She asked.

"Hunting Flies" He responded.

"Oh. Killing any?" She asked.

"Yep, 3 males, 2 Females," he replied.
  Intrigued, she asked. "How can you tell?"

He responded, "3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone."

 (thank you for the joke PurpleCTigger!)

I would love to go to that show, nice you had a great time.  Hope you get to feeling better soon.  That stinks (no pun intended) to get sick during the holiday's.  My hubby snores so bad sometimes I do this whole body shake to get him to stop.  It wakes him up only to have him say he wasn't snoring.  Hopefully he's not getting the crud.  Enjoy the weekend!

He may be developing sleep apnea. It comes with age sometimes, and weight gain, to name a few. I personally would be thrilled if someone was that worried about me. Tell him I said to be nice to ya', or I'll have to come alookin' for him!  :)

*feel better*
