This week I’m celebrating throwbacks.
I love gifts. My friend gave me an Air Supply greatest hits CD featuring the song “Making Love Out of Nothing at All.” It was a song we sang in karaoke earlier this year.
Another friend had told me she would take me to The Book of Mormon when they tour again in Portland. I’d been wanting to see the musical but always missed out. But come January, we’ll be seeing it! Keep those friends who take you to musicals close and never let them go!
For a more literary throwback, Crockett Johnson’s Harold, of the purple crayon fame, is celebrating its 60th anniversary. Famous illustrators have been joining in on the festivities. Here’s what Eric Carle did:
The most exciting thing I’m celebrating this week is that I finally got my passport so I can plan to go back to the Philippines early next year. It’ll be about 15 years since I was last there. It’ll be wonderful to see my family there again.
My Audio/Video Pick of the Week is “One Sweet Day” from Mariah Carey’s Daydream, which celebrated it’s 20th anniversary last week. It’s the first song of hers I recorded on tape and played, stopped, rewound and repeated multiple times to write down the lyrics!
What are you celebrating this week?
