Performance Art 2007 – Shut Down

There will be no von Whoorlie Family Performance Art this year during our annual Spring pilgrimage to Santa Fe. While my father and I might perform the infamous Endless Love duet, my mom and The Magnate might shake a tail feather to some Motown oldies, my sister Lala will not be part of the massive drink-a-thon because she done got knocked up.


Can you BELIEVE the audacity? Two years in row, the whoorlie sisters have put a stop to the performance art! No more Britney escapades, no more re-acquainting ourselves with NSYNC dance moves (via a VHS tape from 1994), no more karaoke…WHAT HAS THIS WORLD COME TO?!

This year, I will have the pleasure of joining the cool club, while Lala will be the lonely outcast, partaking in a lot of this.

Well, there’s always 2008.

Wito’s going to be a cousin! Congrats to Lala and The Magnate!

    Awesome news! Congrats Mr. Wito! And Auntie Whoorl!

    Now. I myself happen to dabble in some performance art, so if you need someone to make an idiot out of yourself with, I am totally open to being invited to join you in Santa Fe. I luuuuuurrrv it there.

    Congrats to Cousin Wito, Auntie Whoorl and most of all, Mama Lala! More serene-eyed, perfectly faux-hawked babies! Hooray!

    However request that next year Whoorly sisters do a duet AND put it on YouTube or Vimeo or something to make up for our deprivation these last two.

    When I first saw the ultrasound pic, I thought “Whoorl is pregnant AGAIN?! Holy crap!” Not that it wouldn’t be awesome, but can you imagine?!
    Congrats to your sis and the whole family. :)

    I, too, thought that the ultrasound was yours . . . & breathed a tiny sigh of relief for you! Bring on the margaritas!

    Congratulations, Lala!
