YouTube in the Office

Miss M.'s daycare is closed today, so the staff can make the changeover and be ready for the kids to move into their new classrooms on Tuesday. So she's in the office with me. (I felt guilty about taking the day off, because the auditors are here, and besides, she loves the adventure of taking the train to NYC.) And because she's a creature of habit (oh right, she's 3 and 3/4), she asked to watch ballerinas on my computer, because we'd done so the last time she was here. So, since I had Nureyev on the brain, as a result of all the press about the documentary that aired on PBS this week, I did a search on YouTube for stuff with Nureyev in it. And what to my wondering eyes did I find but Rudy dancing with Miss Piggy.

Miss M's critical verdict? Pigs don’t dance with people.

She's sooooo smart! And I suppose good, too - my kids would have been chasing auditors down the hall with scissors or something... (Which, if you happen to require, or even find helpful, I'll be happy to ship them off...?)

They dance with other pigs, perhaps?

Yes, but what does Miss M think of the other skit with Miss Piggy and Nureyev in the sauna???

Nureyev appears to be exhibiting a severe case of hogophobia.

I remember that episode. It was a great one. And dear Miss M, my only reply to you is "why not?"

I agree, that just looks wrong.

Oh, we loves us some You Tube. The Mayor and I watched space shuttle launches today. I was as interseted as he was. Very cool.

Also - look up a song called "The Elephant Song" by Eric Herman - very cute.

Oh - and Sweet Juniper has a web anthology post for kids (June 2006) I think.

i love that it was pigs don't dance w/ people rather than the other way around.

That's hilarious!
But then I could sit and watch Nureyev for days...without the pig!

Does she have a problem with pigs dating frogs? I'm no species-ist, but that always confused me as a kid.
