When you know the notes to sing...You can sing most anything!

So I guess I've been living under a rock [couch] of some kind. [See this is where that line thingy across my words would've looked so cool. See how he did that?. How does one do that???? SHOW ME!] Anyway somehow i have managed to miss one of the funniest episodes of Will & Grace ever. Luckily the kind people at CW2 were showing it tonight. And some other kind person has risked going to jail and all and uploaded it on You Tube. Part 1, part 2, part 3. Watch it now. They're probably going to take it down soon seeing that its illegal and all. Oh and it helps if you've watched 'The Sound of Music'.

When i was in the 7th grade my school put up a production of 'The Sound of Music'. I remember the hours of choir practice. I rememeber the hideous choir uniform. [This grey balloon skirt with some pink puffed sleeved shirt if you must know. Ugh!] I remember every freakin line from the play; all this from watching Aarti and Gauri [the two Maria's] bellow them over and over again. For the record i thought Gauri made a far better Maria. I can never forget Aarti's constipated rendition of "The hiiiiiiills are aliiiiiive.........with the saaaooound of muuuuuuuuuuusic" to which we all went "aaaaaaaaa aaaa aaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa"

My dad's favourite song from the movie was "Edelweiss" and he'd always try to sing it in this super deep voice. Heeeeeee. Mum's favourite was "These are a few of my favourite things." and mine was "High on a hill was a lonely goatherd Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo" and "So long farewell"
Do you have a favourite?

Dear anonymous/raobharathrao: How do you decide on the names for your different characters? Is there some sort of process you use? Do enlighten me.
And why is the Sindi bakra the butt of all your jokes?
