    Several things:
    a) I love ‘Into the Woods’ and it is a permanent fixture on my Netflix Instant queueueueueueueue.
    2) I saw the Addam’s Family on Broadway last year, and there was a family sitting behind us and they sang (horribly off key) the theme song and did the snaps too.
    d) There was something else I wanted to comment on during the episode, but I can’t remember it now. Great as usual!

    The first club I was a part of was a group called “Confetti Kids.” We were a youth performing arts group… I did it from 4th to 8th grade, and it was AWESOME.

    I almost saw the Addam’s Family musical last spring, but went with the Book of Mormon instead. Fun, but Tim Minchin the night before was definitely still the highlight of the trip.

    I think the first thing I was in was probably little kids soccer. I was way, way too lazy for that. We played some Sheep and Lions game, and this girl brook and I would always end up being lions, but then just lie down and say we were dead lions.

    Great episode as always!

    The first club I belonged to was The California Raisins Fan Club. Surprisingly enough, there weren’t as many benefits as you’d expect. All I got was pride (of course) and a bumper sticker, which I put on my racecar bed.

    This episode was terrific! I laughed a lot. Silverman was a great guest.

    My first club was the Daisies, which is part of the Girl Scouts. It’s officially sanctioned and everything, but I don’t think it’s widely known. It’s meant for girls too young for Girl Scouts; I was in kindergarten when I did it.

    Anyway, at the end of the year, I participated in the bridge ceremony (we walked over an actual bridge) and became a Brownie. I never did anything else with the Girl Scouts, so that probably tells you how I felt about it. 🙂
