My first time getting hate! I’m so proud. *wipes away a tear*
First off, I have nothing against Carrie Underwood. I think she’s a great country singer and she deserves all the Grammys she’s won. I’m not denying that Julie Andrews lip-synced her performance in the film version of The Sound of Music, but the majority of film musicals are done this way.
Secondly, Julie Andrews is not just a successful actress. She’s a singer, an author, a theatre director, and a dancer.
Thirdly, Julie Andrews has been in four Broadway shows. Four. The Boy Friend, My Fair Lady, Camelot, and Victor/Victoria. The latter of the three earning her Tony nominations. I wonder how many times she has performed live on stage? The number is definitely in the thousands.
Fourthly, before she had surgery that ended up damaging her vocal cords in 1997, Julie Andrews possessed a very impressive five-octave range as well as near perfect pitch. She’s been nominated for an Oscar three times and won one for her role in Mary Poppins. She’s also won several other awards, including Emmys, Grammys, and Golden Globes.
Fourthly, in 2000 she was made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II for being an extremely talented lady.
I could go on and on, but I think I made my point. Goodnight!

If you feel a chill in the air
It’s my spirit hanging somewhere
If you ever get scared
Look on the Brightside
You got a new life
And I’ll do my best just to forget the dreams I’ve dreamt
Wow… Some people got a little upset about that comment. I’m not saying that Carrie Underwood is not talented. She is, no one can say that she isn’t, I just don’t think that they should remake, or not-remake as some are saying, The Sound of Music. It’s a classic. It just shouldn’t be done, by anyone.
And also, don’t be rude. I could have said a lot worse than I don’t think anyone should try to fill the shoes of Julie Andrews. I thought that was a given.
Is it like a slightly faster than normal thump thump. ..thump? That’s what mine does and they have not figured out why.
Yes! I had kind of passed it off as tiny panic attacks, which I’ve never really had before, but now I don’t know. And it’s weird because my heart rate is normally super low. Like 45-50bpm where a normal heart rate is around 90bpm give or take. So it’s just odd.
So, my heart keeps doing this…. thing. I don’t know. It’s weird. I can feel my heartbeat throughout my whole body for periods of time. And I can feel that it’s not a regular rhythm. It’s just strange. I had a complete cardio workup two weeks ago and everything was normal… because this didn’t happen during the appt. I thought it was just stress because my life has been so stress-free lately but I don’t know. It’s not going away and it happens several times a day. Weird.
I’m so not ok with this remake of The Sound of Music. Just, no. You don’t try to remake perfection. It doesn’t happen.

I’m really sorry that I’ve been Debbie Downer the past few weeks… It’s been a tough time. No tougher than any other year but for some reason I’m having a hard time with it.
