Of music and cookies

I love people like this. People who clearly have a sense of humor. Because how hysterical is that - to start up a really horrible orchestra. Maybe I'll start one too. I could play the organ. You would not believe how bad I can be on it. Actually, if you're in my ward, you can. I did a real number on the songs yesterday. As usual, I blame the time change. My brain was thinking that it was 8am and when have I ever played at that time? Never. Anyway, wouldn't this be so much fun? I'm sure half of you took some form of music lessons in your childhood and have a dusty clarinet in your closet. If I were the conductor I would make us play songs by Queen.

On the cookie front (which I know you all were dying to know about) my mom, sainted woman, picked up a box of thin mints and a box of samoas for me when she saw them at Costco. Thanks, Mom! And it looks like the Samoa people (the cookies, not the islanders) have spoken. I'm going to write the Girl Scouts to let them know the results. I'm also going to let them know that I think they could do a better job at selling them because I couldn't possibly be the only person who doesn't know a girl scout and had to resort to driving through grocery store parking lots in the hopes of spotting one. (No luck. But I always heard rumors of them. Like a flock of Dodos.)

I can't believe you haven't spotted any Girl Scouts selling cookies. Out here I can't seem to get away from them! They have been at every single grocery store and Super Walmart. I've even seen about 5 different stands around campus. Maybe that's another reason you should move to AZ!

Rachel, I'd be honored to be in your orchestra. I have been known to play the organ like "satan" too. Dang those preset buttons!

I taught myself a couple songs on the recorder during my mission. I'm in to be the recorder player...especially if you want a great rendition of O Canada!

I'd offer to play the top hand on the piano, or my Irish tin whistle. Both are horribly done, slightly below tempo.

I could never once make a note come out of a flute, and I've always wanted to throw myself on an accordian and squash it flat, like Willa Jean in the Ramona series. I'd be happy to rotate between both talents in our performances.
