May 1st? Seriously? When did that happen? After April 30th, presumably, but still: I can’t believe May is here already! Today will find me once again at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, a veritable hell hole on the side of the road in Valley Forge. (And then we wonder why Philly has such a bed rep… the “Expo” center is little better than a warehouse! When you add a stage, strobe lights, smoke machines and several hundred teenagers in stage make up and sequins, its gets a little bit better but only just a little.)
I’m excited about Day Two of the Starpower regionals, especially because I intend to arrive in time to actually see my students perform this time around. Yesterday, you see, was a minor catastrophe that found me stuck behind a tractor trailer on the exit ramp off of I-76 for 45 minutes (the entire trip should have taken 45 minutes!) and swearing like a sailor. Why? Well, one of my co-workers had just texted me to ask “Are u here?” Evidently the competition was running ahead of schedule (which never happens, by the way) and my juniors had already done their thing.
Here’s hoping May will bring good things, namely a competition that’s running behind schedule so that I can high tail it from Trenton (where I’m teaching Sunday School) over to the Valley Forge (where my seniors are scheduled to perform). I spent the entire afternoon feeling like the Worst Dance Teacher in the History of the World yesterday and I’d rather a much cooler title (such as the Duchess of Cambridge).
Now, lest you think I’ve managed to go an entire post without talking about dating, rest assured: you’re wrong! Last night, someone finally posted a question on my “Your Questions” page (and not a moment too soon. The page has been collecting dust ever since its creation last month and I was just about to delete it; thanks Nick :))
Q: Would you ever date a guy that read your blog before actually meeting you?
A: Yes, totally! The real question is would a guy ever want to meet me after reading my blog? (Especially considering yesterday’s comments pertaining to my growing collection of wedding dresses…yikes!)
