Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.
Chag urim sameach, y’all—and Merry Last Week of Frantic Shopping For That One Impossible Person You Pulled For the Family Exchange.
Have a random mixed bag o’ holiday!

Handel with Care
Last year, our church choir attempted to sing the “Hallelujah Chorus”
at the Christmas Eve service.
We worked really hard, learned those parts—
even brought in a couple of stunt sopranos.
This Christmas Eve, we were going to give “For Unto Us a Child is Born” a try.
But then we were told that instead of singing,
the choir will be voicing the lines of the children
performing in the Christmas Pageant Sermon,
which is titled,”The Best Christmas Present Ever”.
Sunny and I are a Cabbage Patch Kid.
I can only assume that the Chapter Office of Westminster Abbey
placed a call to our church secretary,
requesting that we not set Handel spinning in his grave again this year,
as it quite disrupted the midnight services over there.
We’re very, very sorry.
Just out of curiosity . . . Where is Bach buried?
No, YOU light the shamash
(Thanks, Watson—I’m saving the rest for next week!)
It’s Not Just a Gig, It’s An Adventure
Seems the Sideboys vocal ensemble
had a few “problems” with their sheet music at the 2010 U.S. Navy Band Holiday Concert.
The only easy harmony was the last one.
