Yes, it’s that time of year for one of the Big Three on my calendar!
Dance Recital Madness!
Kindergarten Kids doing Kindergarten Dancing … in a Kindergarten no less!!!
I’ve gone for the last 6 years … and probably have another 6 years plus 6 years left in me before I’m not invited anymore … but I’d still go anyway.
Highlights this year:
– someone could do a real cartwheel. – I think they used the theme music from “The Prisoner“.
– no one had a meltdown on stage.
– there were “garlic ninjas” and “cabbages” … that’s quite rare.
– they let me write my name in English in the sign-in book … although I had to write it vertically.
– I didn’t get too mauled by all the kids.
– there were 5 sets of twins performing … I’m still waiting for another set of triplets like 5 years ago.
note: I get to go to another one tomorrow morning. … pinching myself.
“Rocky” in Japanese just means the boxer guy in all those movies.
note: words are only meaningful if you know what they mean, otherwise they are just panhandlers holding out their hands to people with their eyes shut.
double note: I was going to say “blind person“, but thought that might not be political correct. I don’t even call that “can’t see spot” in a car while driving a “blindspot” anymore. I must be a political activist now!
triple note: why are Chinese characters cool tattoo material, but Hebrew characters, Russian character, Korean character, … … not so popular?
quadruple note: I had to do a “… …” in that last note, sorry.
Today someone said “Cheese Hamburger“. I’m sure that was pretty common back in … before I was born! (I’m glad I was born when I was, otherwise I’d probably sound weird.)
The nice thing about kindergarten is that everyone can be Rudolph.
When kids grow up there seem to be more Dashers and Dancers and Prancers and Vixens and Comets and Cupids and Donners and Blitzens than Rudolphs.
note: I used to be a Rudolph, but now I’m a Santa.
double note: the Peruvian Santa on the left wanted to say “He he he!“, but us other Santas explained that it was “Ho ho ho!” in all the languages we knew.
Today I started to dethaw the rock hard frozen turkey I plan on partially eating on Christmas, … other people have planned to partially eat it too! If it was up to me, I’d impartially eat it all by myself: turkey is that good.
note:Playboy models have paper mooned a lot of people over the years.
double note: does Playboy still produce a magazine? I don’t know.
I get all my interesting interviews off of the computer now.
triple note: sorry I haven’t been around. I’ve been preoccupied … and I don’t even believe in reincarnation! What gives?
quadruple note: I’ve been busy in an “Occupied Movement“. … “Go Bowels!“
quintuple note: “stalling for time” usually involves bathroom cubicles.
My heart beats about 103,680 times today: I didn’t count all of them … because I was sleeping for some of that time.
Some things just seem to carry on while I’m asleep … thankfully. … or maybe my heart stops while I’m sleeping … and I’m just special.
I’m going to become a “trainspotter spotter” until that becomes popular
… then I’ll probably become a “trainspotter spotter spotter”.
I don’t know what I’ll do next, when that becomes popular!
note: there’s an old steam train around here that shoots out of a mountain tunnel onto a trestle bridge that goes over a river every Sunday around 11:30 am. It must look pretty cool: there are always a half dozen trainspotters waiting for it.
double note: here is the steam train on another section of the track, if you are into trains and stuff.
Today I missed the train again … and the boat … and the bus …
but I thought about them.
