A smattering of the topics we have Googled this week:
Rattlin’ Roarin’ Willie midi. I have a thing for Scottish folk songs and I use online midi resources to learn the melodies.
YouTube Midsummer Night’s Dream Kevin Kline. I was hoping to find a clip of the Pyramus and Thisbe play-within-a-play from the movie made a few years back. Jane and I had just finished reading that scene, and I remember the movie version, starring Kevin Kline as Nick Bottom/Pyramus, being hilarious. The clip doesn’t appear to be on YouTube, but we found the Beatles version and watched that instead.
YouTube Modern Major General. I wanted to show it to the girls, and this clip, from a production of Pirates of Penzance starring—guess whom?—Kevin Kline as the Pirate King, with Linda Ronstadt and Rex Smith in the ingenue roles, surpassed my hopes. Priceless.
Chicken enchilada recipes. Thursday night’s dinner.
Office season 3 finale. Also: YouTube Jim Pam. What. I’m a total sap, what can I say? We’re watching Season 2 again, on DVD this time, and after the painful Booze Cruise episode I just really really wanted to watch the end of season 3. Instead, I watched about five Jim-and-Pam montages set to weepy music. Because I am not the only sap out there, not by a long shot.
Seals sea lions difference. Rose wanted to know. Turns out: ear flaps! Sea lions have ’em, seals don’t.
USPS postcard postage. 26 cents for the little ones (what I think of as postcard size), 41 cents for big ones, in case you didn’t know either.
Boy do I love homeschoogling!
