listening to: blue man group – klein mandelbrot
I finished the Amber Spyglass last night. I don’t know how I ever convinced myself to reread the series. I suppose it was worth it, it’s really great reading material. But mwaah! And Jamie, btw, Kikyou died in the chapter before this last one, so I’ve known she died for maybe a week now ^_^
I ran to school this morning. It was about 7:45 when the realization dawned upon me that I had left my bike on my mom’s office after my cello lesson on Friday (in addition to the realization that there was no car for me, either), so I absolutely bolted out the door and sprinted down the alley. And there were people outside in their yards, letting their dogs out and such. I was tempted to yell at them all “g’mornin’!” in a British accent, for kicks. I ended up being five minutes early, though, and only for a sub to be in Creative Writing. So I spent most of the hour giggling over engrish with Justin. Allow me to share some that I found particularly amusing: “be considerate…think for others” — hotel sign, “Sailing dinghy is baby gang” — t-shirt, “Baby Doll, 100% juicy” — child’s t-shirt, “We serve people like you as good food!” –restuarant sign, and my personal favorite “Beware of being eaten by small children due to small parts” –Dragon Ball Z toy package. Oooh.
And yeah, during orchestra, Mr Kurtz came into while the quintet was practicing, and recorded Phil and I for this article he’s doing. But I didn’t know that. And I generally go crazy during rehearsals. So I hope he cuts out dialogue and stuff. I’m embarassed enough he’s going to allow people to see me playing through the web at all. After the quintet left, he said he wanted more fotage of us playing together, but what the hell are a viola and cello supposed to do about that?! Well, we tried remembering the Eyeglass duo, and I failed pretty miserably, considering I’d read through it maybe once back in May. And then we played the maestoso part of “Jupiter”, and except for a few really stupid intonation screw ups, it wasn’t bad. I’m really interested to see how this article will turn out *is fearful of being discovered for the lunatic she really is*
