Conductor Limerick

Chrles Dutoit conducting Philadelphia Orchestra

Conductor Limerick

A conductor was trying to lead
his orchestra at maximum speed
all the fiddlers kept trying
’til they found themselves crying
when their fingers would not stop to bleed.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

    There may not necessarily be a guy, but was reminded of my Hollywood history during a short walk down the walk of fame yesterday.

    Marilyn Monroe’s star is in front of McDonald’s. I don’t know what this means….
