Gripety gripe

My work week in a nutshell:
Words! Words! I'm so sick of words!
I get words all day through;
First from him, now from you! Is that all you blighters can do?

Bonus points if you can name that musical. Mom M -- you're excluded because I know you know it!

It's been an interesting week here at post. Lots of VIP visits. Lots more coming. Lots of speech writing. Lots of stress. Lots of very late nights. Lots of time hanging out by myself because Nick is off in Greece visiting with his folks. Not a lot of working out or sleep. Not a lot of fun.

I am out of words. I am sick of words.

And I have to work on my day off.


  1. Rats!! I can even tell you what costume the person who sings this is wearing and where the scene takes place and what song follows it and sung by whom! I can also sing the entire song!

    Love, Mom M

  2. My Fair Lady!!!

    Audrey Hepburn did a splendid job acting - though she wasn't used as the singing voice.

    Do I get a sticker?!? LOL!

    (I even have two forms of that musical on my ipod - the movie and the stage version!)

  3. Oh, and it sounds like your mom and I could totally be fast friends!

    And I'm sorry your husband is away and that you have to work so much. :(

  4. If you like musicals, then you could be fast friends with me, my mom and my sister. I'm the biggest theater nerd of the three, but the other two can hold their own!

  5. I ADORE musicals! Have almost all of them memorized!

    You and I could have a blast just quoting lines to each other...

    How about:

    Oh, there's nothing halfway about the Iowa way we treat you, when we treat you... which we may not do at all!


    If you don't mind having to live with Fagin... it's a fine life! (It's a fine life!)

    Oh, I could do this all day... :)

  6. Oh, please, don't waste my time! :-)

    My sister and I talk musicals constantly, and my parents get so frustrated because they can't follow along (my mom knows the classic shows, my sis I and know classics and current). It's like we're speaking in code.

    We should totally play stump the theater geek.

  7. Oh, so now THE GLOVES COME OFF?!

    LOL! Love the first line about not wasting your time. That was funny!

    More obscure... more obscure...

    Papa, can you hear me? Papa, can you see me? Papa, don't you know I had no choice?

    - - -

    I'm sitting here with "Pitiful creature of darkness... what kind of life have you known?" going around in my head, but that would just insult you.

    I have RoundUp on the brain right now. Will have to try again later when my brain is free and I have more time! :)

  8. Yentl and Phantom. Nice try though!

    Here's one for you:
    "A Susan sort of Sarah/a Jenny-ish Joanne/Wait for me!/I'm ready now!/I'll find you if I can"
