PS – You may have seen AP’s post about playing the piano…”I am an awesome piano player” he says. And you may have thought to yourself, “Self, that’s just AP shootin’ off at the mouth again.”
But I was there when AP took the bench. I’m waiting for Chopsticks or Heart and Soul and out comes a little Bach, a little Chopin, and some seasonally correct Xmas carols.
So it is true. AP is awesome piano player.
Likewise, my friend Lilli Cloud (who also witnessed AP tickling the ivories) is an awesome singer. Back in October, I got to hear her in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio. I liked it because it hasn’t passed into the realm of overused Xmas music. I’m really having a hard time with Xmas music this year. Well, I have a hard time every year, and this year is no exception. More on that later. In the meantime, click on that link to Bach because it isn’t the whole thing, just a little taste, and it is beautiful, and it won’t make you throw up like all that Xmas crap.
So AP played the piano, and Susan and Doc M and Lilli and I sang The First Noel. I guess because it was live and because Lilli sings like a pro, I didn’t toss my cookies.
A plug for Lilli: She’s got a new business . Here’s an excerpt from the site:
If you’re ready to make a career change, launch your own small business or give your business a boost, you’ve come to the right place. Step inside and replace those pumps and penny loafers with your very own Blue Feet.
