Nothing in particular.

I can promise you, that were I like this 3 years ago, I would've never started a blog.
Or, had I known that I would be like this eventually (say, three years in the future), I would've never started a blog.
Before "like this" starts sounding like some kind of mutated manic depression, I am not actually like ANYTHING in particular right now, which is exactly the problem. All I'm like is LIKE REALLY FOCUSING ON OTHER THINGS IN LIFE. I realize that doesn't give me any excuse, because there are plenty of busy people, wives, home managers, mothers, that still maintain regularly-updated (fairly) blogs.
But since when have I ever needed an excuse not to blog? Ha. Take that.

But I still feel real bad about the whole thing and I wish you never had to end up at the chewed-up end of the pencil. Really, I do. But it's better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick!!! Gosh that must hurt.

Gee, I didn't know my grandma's saying had become this widespread.

Florie, I just LOVE your writing style! And your SINGING! Thank you for sending my your Kando Bando CD. I've had it in my car for a week and listen to it every day. Unfortunately it is exceedingly obvious that it was mixed by one or all of the musicians, with absolutely no consideration for the volume of the vocal. Their loss, because the vocal is beautiful all over, and shows potential for perfection in parts. You are an amazing girl--the gold of the McNairs. We're all pretty amazing, but you are truly special. Michael Fogarty must constantly bring up how much you sound like me. I've got one on you though...power. I haven't heard it yet. You have a great voice, but not a lot of power in the higher register. Lay down a power ballad and send it to me. Then I will be truly thrilled. But then, that's probably not your style. Goodness knows, I was much more sheltered from "worldly" musical influences. Anyway, I'm so proud of you: your confidence, your genius, your humor. Lucky me, Florie McNair is my sister :)

Florence, I just now heard some of your Christmas CD. Your voice is incredible!! Wow...I'm so glad you recorded something so we can hear you. I just love the style of your voice. I've only heard the "Winter Wonderland" song so far, but I had to tell you...I love it. Thanks for doing it!
I always knew there were vocalist jewels out there, just needing to be heard.
"The world knows enough Haven. Let's give them a little more Florence" :)

Keep it up.

Come to Wordstock IV!!

Nina, I got the saying from El. It was meant as a sort of homage. Heh.
Sun, ironically it was mixed by our brother Steve, who likens the vocal to "just another instrument".
You're right about laying down the power ballads. I guess I could say that I do it in rebellion against the "you're so like Sunny" thing that I get, but it's not true. If I could, I would be more like you, but it seems impossible at this stage. (I could also say it comes from consideration for the people that have to live with me. I don't have very much opportunity to scream my lungs out. HA, good excuse, yes?)
Miss b, you honor me. I am unworthy. Thank you!
