candyland: (sheet music)
I heard this at jazz show, and thought it was hilarious. So...without further ado...

A soprano died and went to the gates of Heaven. St. Peter was waiting, and when she arrived, he asked her a question: "How many notes did you miss throughout your life?"

The soprano thought about it, and replied, "Three."

St. Peter nodded and snapped his fingers, and suddenly an angel ran out of nowhere and jabbed the soprano three times with a needle before running off.

Naturally, the soprano was very surprised. "OUCH! That hurt! What was that about?"

"It's the Law of Heaven," St. Peter replied. "God loves beautiful music. So when musicians arrive here, we stick them with a needle once for every note they missed in their life before we let them enter." He opened the gates and led the soprano in.

As she was passing through the gates, she heard a horrible screaming sound from behind a nearby wall. She stopped and listened--it sounded like a person in horrible pain. She turned around and asked, "What is that??"

St. Peter replied, "Oh, that's a tenor. He's been here for quite some time. I think he's just getting started on his third week on the sewing machine."

And just for [ profile] gomath02...

What's the difference between a Porsche and a soprano?

Most musicians have never been inside a Porsche.

candyland: (rain sucks)
It's April. We are in the midst of spring. Therefore, weather, I must admit a certain concern over the fact that we do not have sunlight.

...okay, seriously, why the FEK is it raining? *agrees with Sokka icon*

Sad part is that I usually love the rain, I really do. It's just that...well, we had enough stuff falling out of the sky this winter (though there were no toilet seats, for which I am grateful). We want SUNSHINE! And the worst part of all is that if the temperature drops much more, we're going to have ice, and possibly snow.

Unless that gets me a late start or a day off from school, NO THANK YOU.

In other news, I know I haven't updated here for a couple of days (though I've been flying along on getting the fic-blog set up--not too much longer before it is open for business!) The reason for my absence? Well...I was sort of emo-ing over some stuff. But I'm okay now. Mostly ^^;;

The last couple of days at my student teaching placement have been getting better, though I'm still not quite feeling the vibe like I felt it at my elementary placement. But it's improving, slowly but surely. I'm surprised to find how much I'm enjoying working with the middle schoolers on their honor choir music--those boys are so sweet! Easily distracted, but very sweet :)

And finally, as promised...PICTURES!! I realized that I have this gallery space on LJ, so I might as well use it! So there are two galleries set up at present. The Program Pics for the fifties and sixties program from my elementary placement (a full description of the program can be found here). And Room Renovations has pics of my new room!

Oh, and one more thing. [ profile] writergurl told me about this. Go to Google Maps and choose Get Directions. Type in New York, New York to Paris, France. Read Step #23. Laugh your head off ^___^

I think that's about it for now. I think I'm going to go knit for a while and just relaaaaax.

My coop got this today--teacher humor can be so much fun sometimes! Almost as good as music humor :3

For the most part, I find this hilarious... )

My sister showed me this video, and it's so cool that I just had to share it with all of you out there. As you watch, realize that this had to be done in one take.

[Error: unknown template video] it sad that one of the coolest things I've ever seen involves guys dancing on treadmills? I think that's a little bit sad...but it's still fun ♥
