Counting

I am up to my eyeballs in financials.

Since last week, I've been trying to finish the financial reports that I need to present to the Board of Directors of Season of Concern at this Thursday afternoon's meeting, but since there is an SOC benefit this Wednesday, and another one on Sunday evening that I am hosting, which is followed by an uber-glam dance/drag event benefiting SOC exactly one week from tonight, every time I sit down to crunch the numbers, something pulls me away.

Now that it's after 5 o'clock, maybe I'll be able to channel my inner-CPA and get these documents finished sometime before The Rapture.

While I'm taking off all of my clothes so that I can at least count up to 21, take a break and watch this little gem from Sesame Street.

This is Madeline Kahn partnering with... well... Madeline Kahn and counting from one to twenty. Simple, pure comic brilliance.

I'm glad I'm not in your shoes today, Stephen. I have no inner CPA.

Madeline Kahn is a genius. Did you look at the next video, where she and Grover are singing an echo song? Check it out. Genius.

I wish the best of luck Stephen (and hope you don't need it).

:-D Great video!

Taking off all your clothes so you can at least count to 21... HA!

I seriously hope you meant that as a joke and it's not just me picturing you getting to 21.

Either way, great job!

it says the video is no longer available even when I went on youtube! I LOOOOOVE MK, what a loss to comedy and the world when she passed.

good luck with the board Stephen.. perhaps you'll have better luck if you meet on a Monday... that seems to be the Holy Grail for SOC Board :) (LOVE)

An utterly brilliant woman, cut down in her comic prime.

BTW, I haven't yet quite worked out how she did that.

I remember the Sesame Street sketch when it was on TV in the 70s! I didn't realize at the time that that was Madeline Kahn. I just thought it was funny when she stuck her tongue out at--herself, apparently. (I didn't know who Madeline Kahn was back then--not until I saw "Young Frankenstein"--so I thought it really WAS twins. Don't kill me.)
