Middle of the Night Miscellaneous

~ One more quiz (tomorrow) and a final on Thursday and a full quarter of Hebrew will be behind me. I am SO grateful that one of my last summer CPE buddies who goes to a different seminary has shown up for this summer Hebrew here. We make an excellent study team.

~ The Lovely Daughter has a job interview tomorrow. Let's hope. As far as I can tell, approximately half of her friends are employed and half are not. Movement from the latter group into the former would be a good thing.

~ I have become addicted to The Secret Life of the American Teenager, which I can watch here but probably not at home. The tv switch from whatever to whatever has left us a one-tv family. No one seems interested enough in tv to do whatever needs to be done to change that situation. I suppose that if it interfered with my other addiction ~ early morning re-runs of The West Wing ~ I might drum up some motivation.

~ Michael Jackson's death has demonstrated to me that I am a complete moron when it comes to contemporary pop culture. What can I say? I think I just always thought that all his songs sound the same (which the Lovely Daughter says is true), so I never learned any of them. I was quite surprised when the Lovely Daughter filled me in on the Billie Jean lyrics. I did hear an interview on NPR to the effect that he was a dazzlingly innovative musician and performer. What do I know? Very little, apparently. Well, that's nothing new.

~ I can't think of a single interesting thing to convey. Silence is such a useful option sometimes!

Surely you slow danced to Michael Jackson's songs when he was a kid and you were in high school?

That is what I'll remember about him.

That, and my own girl from Ipanema.

I certainly connect with the "will my child be employed" question! Also the good Hebrew study group situation-- that must be very helpful.

Love to you GG.

I think your thoughts and observations are all interesting...

I'm so with you on Michael Jackson's music. Genius? Not compared to Bach or the Beatles. There I said it and I'm not ashamed!

Best wishes to LD on her job hunt!

Presbyterian Gal said...

Job hunting! Hope she lands a great one.

Hebrew help is a nice thing.

Michael Jackson - bleh

Silent now too

Good luck on the Hebrew final and to the LD on her job search. Sending good vibes for both.
