Hi guys. Welcome to Wednesday. Are you sure it’s only Wednesday? Are you sure it’s not, like Friday already? Or at least Thursday? It feels like it should be at least Thursday by now …
I was out late last night, in case you couldn’t tell. There’s been very little sleep happening since I was here with you yesterday …
If you’re thinking that sounds a bit familiar and that a bit of a theme is developing during our Wednesdays together – you’d be right. Sort of. I was out very late last night, but my evening was a tad more, let’s say, civilized, this time around.
My friend Deb and I had another date at the symphony last night, where we got to watch West Side Story … with a live orchestra that played along during all of my favourite songs !!!!!!
Can you tell how ridiculously, radiantly, sublimely happy this made me?! My loves of musical theatre and live music and movies all coming together in one evening?!? Is it any wonder that I’ve been humming “I Feel Pretty” – loudly – at my desk all morning?!?
Speaking of which, today’s word is mellisonant: of, relating to, or containing melody; sweet sounding
In other words …
Hearing a full symphony orchestra playing Leonard Bernstein’s swoon-worthy score while a re-mastered version of West Side Story is shown on the big screen is totally mellisonant, you guys. Totally.
On a different, but equally enthusiastic, note: thanks to everyone who has submitted their suggestions for our new Friday Feature! Don’t forget, the suggestion box remains open until 11:59pm ET tomorrow!
