    Huzzah! =D

    So now I know of babies of Christian friends to be born in February, March, June, and July. =)

    Glad to see you post again, by the way. ;)

I may just be obsessed...

Alfie Boe singing "Bring Him Home" in the 25th Anniversary Concert of Les Mis. This is Jean Valjean's prayer that the boy his daughter loves will be kept safe in the coming fight.

And I am rather fond of this song, too (although the singer has far, far less experience than Alfie Boe):

"Empty Chairs at Empty Tables." Marius, mourning the death of his friends. Video version here because embedding isn't allowed for that one. I watched my grandmother's recorded version, and I spent the whole time wondering who the kid playing Marius was... I was a more than a little bit surprised when I found out. :-P

    Yes, it's *may* just be obsessed. ;)

    NOT that it's a bad thing. :)

    I was obsessed with Les Mis, too -- passionate music. I have it (somewhere around here) if you want to borrow it...

    I like these songs too, as well as some others from Les Mis. :)

    Nice songs. I think I need to go listen the entire concert sometime, if I can find it. :)

    Heehee! Yes, that made us laugh. Quite the talented performer! ;) Right up there with being able to waggle one's ears hands-free! XD

    Love Les Mis... happy sigh. Dearest and I went to see it together sometime around '99. We would love to do it again. We have not listened to the soundtrack in a few years because of the little ears that love new songs. (We didn't quit before eldest started singing "Look Down...") Thanks for reminding me, we should select certain of those songs to go back into our general play lists!

    Hi, Rebecca! :) It was so lovely to get your comment this afternoon! I would love to catch up with you, too. I just checked my email address box and I still have your address from long times ago, although mine has changed, so I'll send you an email! :) I hope things are going well for you right now!

    Heya, Becca! Thank-you for your comment! It'd be great to keep up with each other more. =D That is a pretty thought-provoking principle in that quote you shared. That actually not thinking of yourself is in a sense rather liberating. I mean... obviously you have to think about yourself to an extent. But to actually live as a servant instead of living to be served brings much more satisfaction!

    I have read it several times now, and left it up on my work computer for those who might be interested. I pray for a revolution.

I've gone private, so if you aren't on my friend's list you won't be able to see any of my posts.

If you aren't on my friends list and would like to be, add me and/or leave a comment here so that I know who you are.

If you *were* on my friends list and are no longer, than either I thought you weren't on pleonast anymore, or it's just an accident that occurred during my many edits of my pleo. Either way, leave a message here and I'll get back to you. :)


(wow, this sounds like it could be my voicemail message :-P)
