Yes. That’s what the newscaster just said about Anna Nicole’s funeral.

Now I’ve managed to not blog about that sad person forever. But this one I just couldn’t resist. So sorry.

I never knew that there was a theme to a funeral, much less a color theme.

Learn something new every day.

My husband has never bought me any fancy dresses. He’s never bought me any lingerie. (He does supply me with chocolate, and that’s good enough for me … I’m not really into clothing all that much. Anyone who sees me knows that!)

What a relief that Dan isn’t into ordering clothing for me, or shopping for me. Or anything like that. Because if he did I’m guessing people would now suggest that he’s a cross dresser like Wagner.

Geesh. Because the guy ordered some women’s clothing, and his wife never wrote about receiving such clothing, he’s now a cross dresser? Double geesh.

Maybe someone is just trying to top the Hatto scandal? I wonder.

(Perhaps Cosima didn’t like what he’d ordered? Perhaps he bought the clothing for someone else but wasn’t about to tell anyone that? Perhaps perhaps perhaps … but no, he must be a cross dresser. Not to say he wasn’t … but this information isn’t settling it for me.)

Moving along…
I received my Muso mag about a week ago. Opened it up to read that I am no fun. Merely because I wasn’t exactly all that excited to see their sex survey. I guess because I’m not into saying who makes the best lover … what instrumentalists have sex more than anyone else … letting folks know if I’m gay or straight … the list goes on … I’m just no darn fun.

Uh-oh. I used the word “darn” there too, which surely suggests I’m not fun.

But of course I knew this already, having read that Muso is “the magazine for the younger, more open-minded generation of classical music fans.” I’m guessing open-minded is also fun, although how the heck would I know? Sigh.

I do enjoy the mag, although it’s a quick and not-so-deep read. But there are tons of pretty faces in it. I mean, take a look at these back issues (sorry, link is gone)! And the current one as well. Wow. I like a pretty face as much as the next person. Whether or not the pretty faces can play is another thing; perhaps Muso could to send out a CD with each issue, that would include the sounds that the pretty faces make so we can hear rather than merely drool look. Better yet, they could send out a DVD … we could drool look and listen.

I’m sure I could manage both at the same time. Really. Even at my older, close-minded, age. If I try. Really hard.

Note for all: Muso is the perfect pit read. Really. And you get lots of attention from your colleagues too, as they oggle … and maybe drool … just as much as you do!

Or maybe the drooling is just an old age thing? Hmmm.

Okay … enough rambling for the moment I have more to ramble about. Maybe even something important eventually. But for now it’s time to eat breakfast. (Yeah, it’s 11:30 AM and I’m only finally getting to breakfast. We old folks move slowly. 😉
