Anyone ever tell you you’re overly enthusiastic? I openly admit it. I often refer to myself as someone who is overly enthusiastic about a lot of thing all at once. While some could see that as a bad thing, I choose to see it as a good thing.
When I see/read/watch/experience something I like, I tend to like to repeat it. Over. And over. and over again. This is a list of things I am “overly enthusiastic” about this week: (chances are, it’ll change next week) Read More
It’s only the second Thursday of the year and I’m already behind in these! Siiiiiiiigh! The past few weeks have been a weird range of emotions, but as of this week I’ve been in a pretty awesome mood all week. Spending my days with my awesome company and my evenings watching shows with my husband that make us laugh so hard I feel like I had done a million crunches. Finally getting out of my weird holiday funk.
With all of that, this is what I’m thrilled about this week
I’m going to take a break from the 12 Days of Geekmas, and share with you one of my favorite holiday things. I’m a sucker for a cappella groups. I’m pretty sure I’ve talked a bit about this before. But as a choir girl all my life, there is something about a group of guys singing holiday songs completely a capella that just hits my heart in a way that I can’t really explain. Plus, I find men who sing SUPER attractive (my husband and I met in choir).
In this post are a few of my favorite a capella songs by some of my favorite a capella groups. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Read More
I like to pretend that I don’t spend as much time on Youtube as I really do, but it would be a lie. I don’t want to lie to you guys. So here’s the deal, I usually spend a lot of time on YouTube. Mostly watching webseries based on classic literature, or watching Hannah Hart get drunk and forget to read directions. Sometimes, when I’m surfing the tubes, I come across a webseries that just looks like so much fun I have to share. Muzzled the Musical is one of those things.
This week had been a little crazy. After getting home from my much needed and disconnected (we only had Edge data… EDGE… do you remember what that was like?) vacation, I came home to crazy busyness at work and just utter exhaustion every day. Hence why there was no Flash Fic yesterday (I swear I tried but nothing was coming. I’m lucky this became as put together as it did). Alas, despite the insanity that is the week of Independance Day, I still have a few things that fit the Thursday and Thrilled criteria. Read More
I am a big fan of Broadway musicals. I’ve only seen a handful on a stage, but I’ve always enjoyed watching a story unfold with music. Phantom of the Opera is not my favorite musical. It’s beautiful and a classic, but ultimately not my favorite. However, one of my favorite songs from the musical is “All I Ask of You”.
Today, Entertainment Weekly posted this link to Kelly Clarkson and Josh Groban singing this song and it is so beautiful I want to cry.
Take a listen!
I’m impressed with how well their voices blend and especially with Kelly’s performance.
What is one of your favorite duets?
Ear Worms sound really terrible, but here is how I define them.
Ear Worm: a song or musician that worms its way into your ear (and heart) to the point that every time you hear that song or musician it makes your ears tingle with excitement.
It’s a technical term. (;
