While raindrops on roses are pretty damned nice, and who doesn’t love whiskers on kittens (especially little grey kittens), I’m more likely to write about schnitzles and streudles here if the truth be know. Incidentally, “The Sound of Music” was the first musical I ever “starred” in, I was Gretl, you know the littlest one? I don’t remember too much. I remember that one the costumes we wore was sewn out of god-awful bedsheets. I also remember that I had a line, “I’ve got a sore finger” which I kept saying with a British accent for some reason. I was looking for an Oscar, and I was no dummy I guess. The other big memory is that in the greatest song of that musical “So Long, Farewell” my exit line was “The sun has gone to bed and so must I”, but I really wanted the oldest girl’s line (Liesl or Louisa or whatever her name was) which is “I’d like to stay and taste my first champagne” although, I thought it ridiculous that I, a six year old had tasted PLENTY of champagne and that what’s her face 16 going on 17 had never even had a sip. This of course was just another reason the French has so tidily won that last big war against Germany, right? Clear champagne drinking superiority.
Anyway, yes, I do love musicals, but I kind of hate The Sound of Music (except The Lonely Goatherd Song, brilliant). This section, however, is not really for musicals, it’s more for anything food related. The brands of stuff I use, the restaurants where I eat, the places I shop, and the services I use will be listed here. I hope you’ll find it really useful. If you have a favorite thing, please let me know about it. I’d love to try it- regional things are awesome. Local things are awesome. Awesome things are just awesome. If it’s your favorite, tell me about it okay? Cheers
