This is why I can't believe anyone took seriously my April Fool's post about becoming a nun.

I can't sing. I like to think I can, but I'm just awful at it.

Besides, I look awful in too much black.

That's absolutely awesome. It reminds me of the Amish people who sing hymns in the 42nd Street subway station.

Speaking of the German, though: back when I was a little scrub trying to get into the stage union, I had to do all sorts of odd theater jobs while doing in summer stock. One of my jobs was "mop bitch" -- I had to mop the stage 45 minutes before the show. I made up a song called "Das Moppen Ees Das Leiben". It's not literally German, but the jist was: "The mopping is the LIFE!" or "To mop is to LIVE!" -- whatever I felt like it should mean on any one of those particularly hot-as-balls-and-I'm-performing-in-BARN kind of days! it was highly amusing to the musical director, who eventually started giving me little ooom-pa-pa chords underneath my song. Yes, I was working in Central Pennsylvania, so the German was quite fitting!


Your Nun Names:
Rebecca: Sister Bernadette Cantsing.
Erin: Sister Mary Mopbitch.

I love it.


I live so near O'F____. How did I not know of this theatrical masterpiece? The non-apology piece sounds intriguing.
