A Day in the Life (14)

So this is going to be a pretty short post because:

A. Nothing much of note has happened, and
B. I've just spent the past couple days frantically trying to get my moving stuff together since I found an apartment and will be gone for the next two weeks which pretty much only gives me a week to pack up my stuff and move across the country.

In an attempt to remain calm, let's talk about pretty things.  In last week's post comments, Shannon and I talked about some of the pieces out there that make our heart go sideways (and you should totally go check them out).  I was thinking of other songs that have that effect on me that I didn't mention, and this one is definitely in my top 5 classical pieces that make my heart go mushy.

We talked a lot about soundtracks (I LOVE soundtracks. I would kill to play in one! ...too bad I'm not in the LA Phil or a British oboist :-/) which made me think of one of my favourite dances off SYTYCD from the...3rd? 4th? season which was choreographed to a piece from the Memoirs of a Geisha soundtrack.

Wade Robson was probably my favourite choreographer on the show other Mia Michaels. I've pretty much loved every single dance they have choreographed, and I was pretty sad when he stopped showing up on the show.  Also thinking of SYTYCD...I accidentally left my youtube up at the family I nanny for and I think one of them accidentally deleted my playlist with all my favourite SYTYCD dances which makes me very sad.  Maybe I'll post them here while I rebuild the list...

In other news I'm going to be hard core working for the next two weeks in an area with no phone service and likely very poor internet service, so I might not be around the blogosphere for a while :-/.  We'll see if I'm able to do any posts while I'm working on my move - they might be a necessary destressing time for me haha. But I might be gone basically until the end of August because my life is just super crazy what with work, the move between three states, and my best friend's wedding. (I HAVE TO MAKE A SPEECH GUYS. I'm seriously freaking out about it.  I have a month to write it...but...speeches man. And when it's for your best friend on her wedding needs to be good.)

In any case hopefully I'll be around, even if it is sporadic, and know that even if I'm not able to comment or respond to your comments, I'm appreciating each and every one of them (and I'm probably reading all your blog posts too!)
