This week on Mirth and Music Monday, a video that was shared by either the Disney page or the Lion King page on Facebook earlier this week. I can’t remember, I follow them both. Anyway, it’s the new Australian cast of The Lion King flash mobbing their fellow plane passengers on a trip back to Sydney with a rousing rendition of The Circle of Life. I wish I had been on this plane.
Mirth and Music Monday is run by the very lovely Regi McClain. Visit her blog for the linky. 😀
In other news, the new round of Around of Words in 80 Days (ROW80) starts today. My writer friends have instigated a challenge we’ve named “April-o Edit-o” in which we aim to have a fully edited novel by the end of April, at which point we pass it on to someone else to read, but I can’t say I’m stressing too much about whether or not I actually manage this. My goal is still to edit two chapters of A More Complicated Fairytale a week, which will see me finish roughly at the end of May. I’m thinking maybe a release date sometime in August, maybe? That’ll give me time to go back and fix the bits where I’ve just left red exclamation marks, get the non-writing aspects of it all organised… that sort of thing.
But anyway, that’s the longer term plan that goes beyond this ROW80 round. Two chapters a week, that’s my goal. Over the past couple of weeks, people have got used to me basically holing myself up at my desk, so they can continue being used to that. 😛 As for check-ins, I’ll just do them on Wednesdays, when I’ll be doing my usual WIPpet Wednesday post anyway. I never really feel like I have enough to say for two check-ins a week. I’m going to finish this off now, and will be back later in the week!

Such a fun flash mob! If that was on a plane i was on, it would totally make me feel better about flying (something that I just don’t like doing!) Good luck with meeting your goals this Round!
Right? Though I would then proceed to hope they sang the entire score throughout the flight and be vaguely disappointed when it didn’t happen. 😀
Thanks for stopping by! Good luck to you, too!
That would have been an interesting flight to be on. 🙂
Huh. My niece was needing napkins today. Something about her being 3 and trying to eat an ice cream cone… She actually did a pretty good job. The only things that needed washing afterward were her hands. 🙂 (I had to tell my sister how proud I was. The entire outing was full of please and thank yous.)
Gah! My alarm clock ate my comment.
Basically, now my 5 yo is singing, “Haah! Bababah! Babababaaaah!” 😛 it’s a good thing that was a daytime flight with no sleeping babies.
The second flash mob is the first one I’ve seen where the people around didn’t figure it out until out was almost over. So funny!
Now I REALLY want to be involved in a flash mob. Always wanted to do the song “Bulbous Bouffant by The Vestibles at a bus stop someday…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rugJTUDs2lk
If you’re ever in the States, wanna join in?
That napkin number was so funny! Thanks for posting that. And of course the Lion King cast … *want*
Good luck with your goals, Emily! The main thing is to keep moving forward.
