The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

I've been in rehearsals for a while now. We're getting close to the performance dates. Shows will be at Rock Solid in Winona MN on December 10-13 (for tickets, just call Rock Solid). It's a cute Christmas story about a family that is the "bad" family but their accidental participation in the Christmas Pageant may just change hearts and minds. I play Mrs. McCarthy who is one of the Ladies Church group. I'm having a wonderful time as I always do.

gamer marries game character

What is this world coming to? In Japan a gamer has decided that he loves his virtual lady so much that he decided to marry her. Does this sound crazy to anyone else? For heavens sakes, where will their children live? LOL. The game is the dating sim called Love Plus from Nintendo DS. They had a ceremony and a reception for friends. http://videogames.yahoo.com/events/plugged-in/man-marries-a-videogame/1376577

unfriend is the new word for 2009

There were several other words in contention but "unfriend" won the honor. It relates to the social networking sites and is used when you remove a person from your friend list. http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20091117/lf_nm_life/us_words_unfriend

NASA claims 2012 is not real

NASA has decided to come out publicly against the theory that the world as we know it will end on December 21, 2012. The first date that this was supposed to happen was set for May of 2003 so when nothing happened, theorists moved the date back to the end of a cycle on the Mayan calendar. NASA has debunked the theory of a mysterious planet colliding with earth and says that no such planet exists. http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/afp-nasa-2012-myths.html

A deer that watches tv?

A 6-month old buck named Bubba was wandering around Elba on Halloween creating quite a stir. He knocked down a 2 year old and left a hoof print on the child's back, scared trick-or-treaters, and ended up on a couch watching tv. Bubba wears an orange scarf and a sign that reads, "Hi, my name is Bubba. Please don't shoot me." http://www.winonadailynews.com/news/local/e7e1b0a6-c83b-11de-8e1c-001cc4c002e0.html

Glee

Glee is a fantastic musical comedy about "real" teens who have found their niche. It's funny, appalling, sad, entertaining, and has a touch of soap opera too. It's on FOX on Wednesday nights at 8pm. They have been chosen to receive an award from Diversity Awards for their diverse cast. I am hooked!! http://omg.yahoo.com/news/glee-cast-to-receive-award-for-diversity/30495

free change of clothes

A local woman has opened a clothing store for bariatric patients. The weight comes off rapidly after the surgery and it can be a burden to buy new clothes every other week. All clothing at her store is free. She hopes to become nonprofit and offer other services as well. http://lacrossetribune.com/news/local/article_77a461de-c67f-11de-b6dc-001cc4c03286.html
