Oh okay, today really IS Friday

So I went all day yesterday thinking it was Friday. I also managed to call at least two people the wrong name. So, on this anniversary of the release of The Wizard of Oz, it seems an especially appropriate time for me to post this video:

I always thought it was a shame they cut so much of this dance scene out of the final film, but I'm a big fan of dance.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, this video doesn't include one of my favorite quotes from the film, to wit:
Scarecrow: I haven't got a brain... only straw.
Dorothy: How can you talk if you haven't got a brain?
Scarecrow: I don't know... But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking... don't they?
Dorothy: Yes, I guess you're right.

And he is so wonderful. Very loose and fun to watch.

Anyone can get the day of the week wrong, but the fokes at the Empire State Building got the color of Emerald wrong,

LOL, I saw that too, Ruth! But the news report I heard this morning said that the lighting was intended to pay tribute to the "ruby slippers." I wondered if that was an attempt to cover up their faux pas.

And thank you for your kind understanding regarding my weekday disorientation!
