Saw an ad for some tv talk show recently (can't remember which one) obviously looking for participants. A warm female voice asked the question, "ARE YOU A PARENT WHO HAS ACCIDENTALLY DISFIGURED YOUR CHILD FOR LIFE? IF SO, PLEASE WRITE TO: (name of show and address here)"

Good lord, what is the world coming to?

Wonderfully productive UT practice last night. Worked some more on our arrangement workshop. Also had fun working on our donation to Interfilk this year...a "LIVE FROM ALLISON'S LIVING ROOM" tape of our songs which aren't on any of our albums (some will definitely NEVER appear on any future album :)). We're going to get as many as we can on the tape, and also include all the lyrics/chords to these songs. We'll be throwing in some other goodies as well. :)
