Bohemian Rhapsody

This was my first introduction to Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. If you were 15ish in 1990, it was probably yours too.

Looking back, I'm kinda surprised that my Dad didn't introduce me to the song earlier, seeing as most of my Queen knowledge comes from him, but whatever. So this past week, the You Tube hit has been the Muppets take on it. Brilliant! My kids love it! I love it (I love the Muppets) and I'm so amazed at how Muppet Studios pulled it off to make it kid friendly. If you haven't seen it yet take a look.

And just to round things off I found the full length version of the video, okay it's the Wayne's World version, which blends Queen's video and the movie together, but hey, it's my blog, I can blog the way I want to. Enjoy!

I'm officially very pregnant

I now have to squat down to pick things up off the floor, instead of bending at the waist. I can no longer join in with my classes in songs where we jump up and down or touch our toes. I have had more people in the past week ask about my pregnancy than ever before (apparently I had co-workers who didn't realise I was pregnant). I'm constantly being tickled from the inside by this baby - a funny feeling really). My walk has slowed down to the pregnant ladies gait - lots of fun when the only working printer in the school is completely on the other side of the building to my classroom. But I love it, every minute of it!

Funny how birthdays change so much. I turned 34 yesterday and really enjoyed myself. We kept it quiet and had a nice dinner out with a few good friends at one of my favorite restaurants. My son couldn't get over that this was a fun time for me. You see he's 5. To him birthdays are all about cake, games, and presents. The more you play, the better time it is. I remember that. I remember my mom creating all sorts of games for us to play in the basement, complete with prizes. I remember the lists of presents that I wanted most of all. When you are little birthdays are very important. They are one day that is all and completely about you. In fact I remember every time it was the 13th of another month, I would do the math to figure out exactly how far away my birthday was.
As I got a little older, birthdays became an excuse for a mass sleepover. Of course what teenie bopper girls don't think about before hand is that a group of girls full of hormones, chocolate and lack of sleep is a disaster waiting to happen - friendship fights galore. Yet the idea always seemed good at the time.
College birthdays pretty much had a set pattern too. You'd get all prettied up to go out with a group of friends who would procede to make sure you never had a moment without a drink in hand (you'll have to forgive me if my memories are a little shaky on the details of those birthdays).
Now, I really am happy to just have a little bit of grown up time with a few good friends. I don't have mass lists of present ideas because I really don't need anything (another thing my son can't get over). It's not a big deal, it's just a nice evening out.

So I was getting ready tonight to go somewhere nice for my birthday (Suwanna - I can hardly wait!) and I realised that it is difficult to look nice when you are 6 months pregnant. I tried on 3 outfits. The first just looked dated (I got it when I was pregnant with Elijah, who is now 5). The second I just felt fat instead of pregnant...too bad it wasn't slightly looser - I probably would have been able to wear it a month ago. So now I'm in my 3rd, a loose pink blouse. It's pretty and feminine, but my goodness, who would have thought gettting dressed would be so difficult?
