Slow week in Idinaland while we wait for the big surprise reveal! I’d ask what you think it is but I think the guessing game has turned to “when do you think it’s going to be revealed?” by now ;)
So anyway, while we exercise our patience and test our let it go skills, I’ve compiled a short list of some of the things that happened this week all in one post.
Canada AM Interview
On Wednesday morning, Idina talked about Holiday Wishes, Frozen and If/Then. Cute little interview. Click below to go to the interview site.
Halloween at If/Then
Everyone in the If/Then pit dressed as Idina for Halloween and Carmel Dean (If/Then’s conductor) posted the pictures to her twitter:
Random Gallery Updates
Mostly stage door pics sent by awesome fans (send yours!) and some other random pictures that I still have lying around.
Site Info / Help the site
I updated the “donate” page with other non-money ways you can help the site if you feel like doing so. Read about it here.
And I’m going to use this short tidbit here to say first, thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has sent pictures and/or commented about the site recently, you’re awesome. And secondly, I’m slowing down the site work the next 6-8 weeks so if you send anything I might take a while to reply. Worry not, all the latest news and events will still be posted as they happen, here or on twitter.
To finish this post on a fun note, great video taken last night by @srodillado
Funny thing tonight @Ifthenmusical.@idinamenzel was talking when she noticed me filming and then commented not to focus on her bottom but top. She is a funny funny woman.
Before pics, and if you follow Idina-Here on twitter you already know, I’ve “reactivated” the site’s tumblr so you can follow us there now! Click here to visit and follow. You can also always find the link to both our twitter and tumblr to the right of our navigation menu.
As for pictures… I’ve updated several albums in the gallery, find the album list and links below. One of today’s addition is the If/Then Stage Door album, to which you can contribute! So far I’ve only added the very crappy pictures I took last month and a few others that aren’t fan pics. If you have stage door pics you’d like to share please send them to flor[at]idina-here.com and let me know date the pics were taken and how you’d like to be credited.

Hearst Magazines Magfront: Unbound Access
Early today, Idina attended the Hearst magazine Unbound Access event held at the Hearst building. I’ve added several pictures to the gallery. Click thumbnails below to see the full album.
In cased you missed it, the featured image in this post is from Idina’s morning tweet, taken at the same event.
Poll Time: Holiday Wishes
‘Holiday Wishes’ is on track to enter this week’s Billboard 200 album chart right around #13 (read more here), which is quite the feat considering it came out in mid October! So our first semi-regular poll* has to do with ‘Holiday Wishes’ and which of the songs is your favorite. Personally, I love December Prayer, though I’m putting the album away for a while to rediscover it in December ;)
Cast your votes below!
*This was going to be titled “Weekly Poll” but the truth is I don’t think I can come up with a new question every week so let’s just call it poll time!
American Indian College Fund Gala
Last night Idina performed at the American Indian College Fund’s 25th Anniversary Gala. I haven’t been able to find “proper” pictures of the event (yet?), but if you visit the College Fund’s twitter you can see a few pictures of Idina on stage.
