Oh, that's wonderful! I hope you do make a spreadsheet with Jeannie. I love the way you make your sense of humor into pictures!

GambaGirl said...

LOL!

Nicole said...

Awesome! I love it.

--Deb said...

Love it, love it, love it.

One question, though.

How am I going to get the song out of my head? It just goes round and round and round and round and...

Though, it's Gershwin. It's not like that's a bad thing! Maybe you should add an earworm disclaimer, though?

i needed a chuckle.... thanks!

Perhaps if this were a PowerPoint presentation?

Did someone get new flowchart software? (Although anytime you want to post Gershwin it's ok by me!)

Nita said...

You've just made this jazz singers day! And just before a gig, too! :)

You are a clever monkey!

SallyT said...

That is perfect. Things must be completed when their time comes. It makes perfect sense to me that you needed to complete that first.

eyebehold said...

Cafe press mugs, perhaps?

thanks for the smile.

dormouse said...

You make me laugh and laugh, Franklin. I put that one on my computer desktop.

Hilarious!

For accurate Broadway musical self-referentiality, the section marked "Ask for anything more" should have an arrow leading to "Oliver!" ("Please, sir, can I have some more?").

Lynn said...

Yes, but do you have "Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin" blasting in your car? I do, for the past week and a half. S'Wonderful.

joeyshouse said...

I have had a rather long day - apparently what I needed was a Gershwin flow chart. How'd you know?

That is just fabulous!

chellebelle said...

I would so buy that on a mug.. hee-lar-i-ous, and yes, the song is now stuck in my head too..

Liz said...

Ha ha. I just sprayed my martini all over my keyboard (computer, not piano). Thanks for the giggle.

Karen said...

Oh crap, I'm sitting here on 10th Avenue and this just slaughtered me.

Now all we need is Porgy and Bess as a SharePoint site.

It is all so clear now!

Miss Marty said...

I love!!! Thanks for the laugh this morning.

Lisa said...

I love you! Off to charge up the iPod so that I can listen to the classics while I work on the bugs in this colorway sock....

Eileen said...

S'wonderful!

(If I had a time machine, THAT's who I'd go back to meet.)

KarenJ said...

LOL! I loved it. This only supports my previously unpublished request (demand?) that you blog more frequently!

Gail said...

You say tomato ... do you know the story about that lyric when the sheet music was published in England? They just sang "tomato-tomato" - not to-mah-to ... until the American recordings came to England.

Instead of Stephen Foster (I Dream of Jeannie) how about another Stephen -- as in Sondheim -- as I just got the cd of Sondheim on Sondheim, and it includes the autobiographical parts by Mr, Sondheim himself ... I mean, if you are looking for a distraction... the charting is bound to be more complicated for "Passion" or "Sunday in the Park" or "Road Show!"

Thanks for the chuckles! Now I have Gershwin and Sondheim running through my head!

anne marie in philly said...

I see in my mind gene kelly tappiing out this tune in "an american in paris". and it makes me smile. gershwin is my fave composer!

Liz said...

Glad you're OK, m'dear. The Archers clan were starting to get concerned until you posted this...

theyarnstashisattacking said...

You're doing a lovely job of getting your Graphjam on. Very nice.

Nance Thacker said...

Looooved it!!!

That belongs on a t-shirt! It's s'wonderful, s'marvelous!!
Please chart more Gershwin lyrics - I never loved diagramming sentences and doing social work genograms. This is BETTER.
Now, I've asked for anything (something?) more!

evalyn said...

Did you get new graphics software? I'm seeing a trend.

Mindy said...

Use in any format with permission is prohibited? WITH permission? Still prohibited? I wanted to link to your Flickr chart but read the statement first...

The Queen said...

Damn, sir, you are brilliant in oh so many ways.

Sara in WI said...

Will this be part of your next workshop presentation? I love it!

Meredith said...

Oh, that's awesome! You just made my morning (which had been pretty craptacular and was heading toward a first class pity party) about a million times better. Thanks for the laugh!

Victoria said...

Love. A lot.

Treva said...

awwww.. LOVE Ethel

Susan said...

This is TOO funny! I had to share it with my 70 yo Dad, who is a huge Gershwin fan. I grew up on this music. Thanks for the chuckle.

Llamabean said...

Thank you, this definitely made me smile today!

Brilliant, sez I the process engineer.
My muggle comic-lovin' husband enjoyed this one as well.

We are polar opposite twins! I started sewing when I was a wee one and slowly worked my way up until suddenly sewing is my full time job. At some point in college while I was finishing my sewing homework I realized I had some free time, but I sure as heck was NOT going to go sew something. So now what? I bought the idiot's guide to knitting and got started. When I was eight, my aunt had taught me how to knit. It was amazing to feel the muscle memory kick in. So now I knit for fun and sew for money. I LOVE you shirt squares. So cool! Congratulations!

Favorite composer + favorite song + geeky flowchart = made of win. Love your blog!
