What About Babble?
To those of you who assumed I quietly lost my job at Babble and have decided not to mention it to me, thank you. That's exactly what I want you to do when, inevitably, I am quietly fired from Babble.
But I'm still plugging away. Babble launched a site re-design around Thanksgiving and there have been a few glitches getting the blogs back up. All of the Kid Scoop bloggers are on standby for full parental blogging and we can't wait to start posting slide shows, ASAP.
I expect the Babble blog to be back up this week so stay tuned. Don't worry, I'll tweet my posts a million times. That's how you'll know I'm back.
In the mean time, Live Strong. (Are we still saying that? Considering?) I've been making the most of my time off by teaching myself to play the ukelele and by listening to all versions of all songs from Les Miserables.
Here are the uke songs I'm working on:
Somewhere Over the Rainbow (of course)
Call Me Maybe (of course)
Intro to Stairway to Heaven (of course)
I Walk the Line (what else?)
Riff from I can't Get No Satisfaction (I say "riff" now)
Riff from Back in Black (of course)
7 Nation Army (of course)
Am I good at the uke? Mmmmmm, no. But I feel like I am. I know about 6 chords. The main problem is that I can't really tune my uke very well so all my songs sound bad. There's a lesson in there somewhere. Part one of my plan for complete guitar domination is almost complete. (Part one is learning how to tune things.)
