No, Reverend Father, you may not have numbers from La Cage at your first Mass, and we said "stole", not feather boa!

You really like Climb Every Mountain better than Edilweiss (sp? sorry)

I'll post my pics in a few.

OOOOOHHH YEEEAH! Edelweiss is "nice", but Mother Sup delivers a formidible tour de force. In the movie, her voice comes up from her toes, circles around her bazoombas and issues the flighty Maria a serious maternal bitch slap, but in a very kind way. Great number for vocations too. I like especially because it doesn't necessarily mean that "vocations" means get to a nunery or a priestery or a monkery. It means find YOUR vocation, whatever it is. I'm waiting for some priest to have the balls to say "let us pray for vocations to the single unmarried life." I dare any priest to say that out loud.

I knew a UCC minister that once did his benediction to the tune of Edelweiss.

My favorite Rodgers and Hammerstein number actually had a little bit of help by Homer Simpson:

Homer Simpson Do-Re-Mi.

DO - I pay to by my beer.
RE - the guy that pours my beer.
MI - the guy that drinks the beer.
FA - a long way from my beer.
SO - I think I'll have a beer.
LA - la la la la la beer.
TI - No thanks, I'll have a beer.
That will bring us back to (Homer looks into empty glass): DOH!

Good on you, Jason! :-D

As for memeage - I have my LiveJournal and Harry Potter FanFiction friends, not to mention some of our mutual MySpace buddies, to thank for the more creative ones. :-)
