What to say...

~ brought to you by Jori and Diane ~

It's not necessarily the lyrics but the rhythm that had me singing along with this Ric Segreto song since yesterday. The part that moved me in a way that I enjoyed very much is the syncophation after 'what to say...' I sang and swayed to this music repeatedly yesterday which annoyed my five-year old. He went, "Mommy! stop stop stop!" and tried to cover my mouth. I teased him and continued singing along, "Baby Pooh, what what what?!... to sayyyyy....."

I still don't know why or what is it with kids not wanting to hear their parents sing, lol! actually I am the same way as my son with my mother when I was a kid.
LOL I didn't want to hear my mom sing because she couldn't carry a tune in a bucket. :) My dad's a good singer, though. I inherited my musical ability from him. Nice song!

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
