Sugar Plum Fairy Dances on Glass Harp

I was wired while I was preggy. An earphone was taped to my belly while its mate was plugged in my ear. Together my then unborn Cj and I listened to classical music. It was kinda difficult to choose a favorite as I loved all that were playing during those nine months. My favoritest is Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. Nowadays I play it especially when I go a'neighboring in blogsville and Cj doesn't leave me alone. It's easier to send him back to his toys while I blog in peace.

Musical Monday is brought to you byJori and Diane. Head over to their sites to play along.

Oh how cool! This reminds me of that Sandra Bullock movie where she plays the glasses. :)

Now that's a creative way to play the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies! Nice choice -- especially when, like me, it's being played really early in the morning, LOL.

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy is my favorite composition from Tchaikovsky.

My girls and I love the Nutcracker. It sounds like Christmas to me, but for a totally different reason. My sister and I used to attempt to serenade our parents with wine glasses during the holidays. Of course, the results weren't quite the same.

Hi Anya, maybe Glass music is solely for humans :) My Mozart screams when I play Mozart on the piano, like he's screaming at me to stop playing his namesake lol!

Phaeton

Remember that 1995 Sense and Sensibility scene in which dashing Mr. Willoughby recklessly drives a phaeton around town with Marianne Dashwood? The novel was published in 1811.  Fast drag your imagination to 2011 and the two lovers are today's rich hunk and a happy-go-lucky, attractive chick speeding on say, a Lamborghini Reventon. In Pride and Prejudice, obsequious Mr Collin declares, "she (Lady Catherine de Bough) is perfectly amiable, and often condescends to drive by my humble abode in her little phaeton and ponies." pha·e·ton   (f -tn) n. 1.

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility . Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author. Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare . Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen 's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S . As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 end
