Today, I continue to live in that “nether region” between Christmas and New Year’s Day… This of course gives me time to think (uh oh) and even more time to watch and re-watch some of my uber favorites…. Mainly, Glee.

It also gives me time to go to the Holy Grail of source material (NOT!) “Wikapoopia” to get my facts delightfully wrong!  But this is  falling far short of a scholarly essay, so HUSH UP and try to enjoy…

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For other uses, see Glee club (disambiguation).

A glee club is a musical group, historically of male voices but also of women’s or mixed voices, which traditionally specializes in the singing of short songs—glees—by trios or quartets. The first named Glee Club was founded in London, UK, in 1787.[1] Glee clubs were very popular in the UK from then until the mid 1850s but by then they were gradually being superseded by choral societies. By the mid-20th century, proper glee clubs were no longer common. However the term remained (and remains) in use, primarily for choirs found in Japanese and North American colleges and universities despite the fact that most American glee clubs are choruses in the standard sense and no longer perform glees. Glee in this context does not refer to the mood of the music or of its singers, but to a specific form of English part song popular between 1650 and 1900, the glee.


Yawnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn – Enter one Uber fab cast member…Ms. Jennifer (I call her…Jen) Aspen and off we go into a Gleek o licious discussion.  Firstly, let me thank “Ms. J” for taking my call.  Lord knows I see my own number come up and I let me go to voicemail.   What a delight, my SQEFSSTNBNBFF or (Slightly Quirky, Eco- Friendly, Sassy, Sexy, Talented No Bullshit, New Best Friend Forever) not only has just as much personality off camera as she does on, but she is also working with me to single handedly erase her “carbon footprint” from the planet.   Sooooooooooo after we returned from saving the world we had time for a lil’ chit-chat (she took the alto part as I led the tenor section).

What a joy it was to meet a fellow “Random” as we “Gleefully” bounced from one topic to the next  ( had to say it…) I realized this was a woman with a “past”!

Not that kind of past!  Jen is no stranger to the limelight as we have enjoyed her in… (just wanted to name a trite few)

So after fixing the ozone,  attending to world hunger,  addressing a cure for all known diseases and agreeing to work on our ESP…. No not mind-reading silly – Economic Stimulus Plan (although they seem to be one and the same lately)  Oops did I say that????  We got down to the dirty truth.   What does an Uber Fab secretly wish for in the New Year?

  1. MALDIVES… the sunny side of life
  2. Apple TV (cheap date)
  3. Lexus Hybrid (not so cheap date)

Tis’ the season to forget that it “tis the season”… In fact, even after JUST taking some “me time” to give back to the community that has supported me in so many ways… I still must admit the Uber was sucked right out of MY Fab as I found I was having an A.M. (Atomic Moment)…Not a B.M. ( Duh you know what that is…. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwh!) over something as silly as…Well it was the LAST string of non-twinkling, five foot, multi-circuit… Annnnnnywayyyyyy,  this has become a season of forgetting not remembering.

  • Forgetting to say “Please” and “Thank you”
  • Forgetting that many of us do have enough while others will go without
  • Forgetting that holiday gatherings are about responsibility and getting behind the wheel of a car drunk is simply unacceptable
  • Forgetting that to give of yourself and your time is a precious gift that WILL make a difference

So for that, I want do something I rarely do, but it is in the name of an amazing cause and some very special friends… Max Ryan (Sex and the City II) and Kevin Sorbo (Hercules and Andromeda)… I am going to share a link from my new UCUNNBFF (Uber, Cool, Uber, Newsie, New, Best, Friend, Forever) Christine (Chris) Morrow of CNN – Her article and event is no less remarkable then the people who made it happen.
