Assault With Intent to Fiddle

The annual salute to fudge continues. You know you love it. Admit it.

SAY IT! Say, "I LOVE THE SALUTE TO FUDGE!!"

Why thank you. That means the world to me...

December 9:

You attended the Middle School Orchestra Christmas Concert tonight. In this case, it made the most sense to simply jam the fudge directly into your ear canal.

Even if the fudge contained big walnut chunks, it was still more pleasant than actually listening to the performance. Middle School Orchestra Concerts are reportedly being used as interrogation tools in the fight against terrorism.

("Tell us where Bin Laden is, or we'll play 'Sleigh Ride' again! Don't think we won't!")

I have missed this year's concert.....AMEN!
Hope you are able to get the fudge out of your ears or you might have someone licking it out........shudder. Probably the cat or something.

Hope you are able to keep up with all the fudge making demands upon your time.

HUGS

Merry Christmas to me. I have just given myself the following gift: I have put you in my bookmark tab-thingie of blogs to read every day.

(My word-veri is "thonv" as in thong, but with a "v". There's a message in that...)

Okay.

I LOVE the salute to fudge!

That was extremely heartfelt, in case you were wondering. I meant every single word of it. Because, really, I just love all things that go on on this here blog. And well, I always love fudge. It's a win win!!

HaHa! Last week, I unknowingly submitted myself to such torture by saying that I would be a vendor at the Middle School's "Artisan Faire" during parent-teacher confrences. They advertised by saying that the Faire would be serenaded with carols by the orchestra students.

W-O-W.

HA! I was so glad when our 5 kids got to the "hey they actually sound good this year" stage.

Great, now fudge can stick in my ears in addition to sticking to my hips and thighs! Thanks DeNae, I really needed more 'fudgy' areas....

Stacy said...

I love the salute to fudge. So much that yesterday, I went to the store and bought all the ingredients to make a super-sized batch of DeNae's famous fudge. Hasn't been made yet, but its mostly because I haven't yet been successful in finding my kitchen counters.

And being that I am in the midst of Christmas Concert season with my eight year old violinist, may I say that you are most accurate. My daughter's group tends to play a bit more in tune that your average middle school orchestra, but I was in a middle school orchestra once and can say most emphatically that those who listened did so with a true attitude of charity. Or masochism. Either one.

WV: "killus." No joke.

The title alone made me laugh.

LOL! This was too funny.

y'all need to move to Australia where the school year generally finishes far enough away from Christmas that we don't have to endure any sort of school concert.

My first experience with that was last year when we went to my sister-in-law's last recital in Mesa. It went well enough but I am sure if I had to go any more than once I'd be shoving more than fudge in my ears.

I love the salute to fudge! Now, if only I had some of my own...

I too love the salute to fudge. I'd love it more if I had a piece in my hand (or my mouth) right now...

I remember "playing" the viola in 6th grade. I TOTALLY didn't even put the bow on the strings. I asked mom if she noticed after and...ya. She did.

Viola was hard for me because I could read piano music. I should have chosen the violin. Then the music would have looked the same.

Just went to my sons orchestra concert last night. There are three groups...beginning - there is not enough fudge in the world to save us from theout of tune offering they shared...Intermediate - not too bad, but some of the violin players have more zest than skill. It looks like they are sawing down a tree instead of playing the instrument. Fortunately my son is in Advanced...pretty impressive, for all that! It's nice to enjoy the group that I went to see. I can tune out the rest (or just keep fudge in my ears!)

InkMom said...

Aack! Tell me again why my twins are getting Suzuki violin outfits for their 5th birthday in February? Why? WHY?
