Myriad of Felicitations

I like using felicitation because it makes me feel like Jane Austen.  There are certain words I use to bring out my inner classic author.  All of us - that includes you and me - have an inner classic author just waiting to come out.  For example, when I use "in the which", it brings out my inner Shakespeare and when I use "inconceivable," it brings out my inner William Goldman.

Anyway.

After my Myriad of Frustrations day, I figured I should follow it up with a Myriad of Felicitations.  Felicitation is the opposite of Frustration.  Just so you know.

Felicitation #1
Saturday was Yahoo #1's piano festival and wouldn't you know - it's appointed time was right in the middle of the dang day.  I grumble at any schedulings that coincide with the middle of a Saturday.  Incidentally, it turned out to be a great day because Spouse and I each took the day to spend one-on-one time with each of the Yahoos.  I spent the day with Yahoo #1 and Spouse spent the day with Yahoo #2.  Being as kindergarten is half day, Yahoo #2 and I get lots of alone time.  Yahoo #1 and I don't ever spend any time alone.  It was wonderful - like we were getting to know each other all over again.  Isn't there a song in there somewhere?  Getting to you know.  Getting to know all - about you.

Felecitation #2
My sister Opree has landed a leading role in an Opera with The Utah Opera Company.  It's Puccini's Suor Angelica and you can get your tickets here.  What are the odds of that?  A sister named Opree that sings in a real Opera!  Who would have known.  If you're nice I'll get you an autograph. 

Felecitation #3
I made cookies today.  Oatmeal chocolate chip.

Felicitation #4
It's March.  All of the rude taxpayers are done with their taxes.  Scientific research shows that the mean, rude and vulgar file their taxes in February while the nice and mannerly file their taxes is March.

When did you file your taxes?  Hmmm?  And what kind of person does that make you?

Felicitation #5
Marathon training is going rather smoothly.  The warmer weather has made it easier to run faster and longer.  Three weeks down, nine to go...

Felicitation #6
Jeff Bridges won an Oscar last night.  As usual I'm reporting on an event I didn't attend or watch.  I did not see Jeffie's Oscar movie either, but I believe he should have earned an Oscar in 1998 for his performance of The Dude.

What do you call a person that files in April, LAZY? I should have made cookies instead of cake, they sound better.

Just finished a weekend of watching Jane's...first Jane Eyre (I think Rochester was weird looking, but Jane grew on me)...Mansfield Park (can't remember if that was by Jane) and Becoming Jane...I really like that one...priming myself for some P&P this next weekend (seeing as how the hubby is hot 'n heavy at work :)
AND "inconceivable" makes me think of the short guy with the speech impediment from princess bride...just sayin'.

I want a cookie!

You may wish for the weather to stay cold when I start your sprint drills. Bwahahaha...

Miracles do happen. Felicitations happen, and little tenacious hearts get pr's in marathons, and get to sing on the big stage...

I can get you a toe...

Kelly Mo, a toe would be splendid! However, I think I'd rather have my rug back. It really tied the room together, man.

I haven't filed my taxes yet. And one time, we didn't file for three straight years. So what would that make me? Awesome?
