*blink* What the hell happened to my “akemashite omedetou?!” AH! Blogger, I knew there was something filthy about your ways! (*note: the above means “happy new year”)
Oh, I totally forgot to mention that we met Kira at Mitsuwa. And…I like to gush about what I bought, since I’m cool in this way. So, anyway, I got Hana to Yume 1, even though it didn’t have the latest chapter of HanaKimi in it. The furoku was a calendar, though, and there’s a very pleasing picture of Sano in there. Then I got a Porno Graffitti single I’ve been eyeing for a while, Shiawase something really long I can’t remember. Then *pause for effect* Yamada Nanpei’s artbook was actually for sale! The “display only” copy, that has been taunting me since somewhere back in August. It seemed rather dubious, but nobody asked any questions at the register, so I walked off happily with a really pretty art-book in the end (although Megan almost had it two seconds after I did but…well…too bad *lol*). Oooh, and then I got the first three of Mars at the used place. But, goddammit! They had 1-15! I should have gotten a good three more than a did. I paid six dollars for those three books!!!
And whoa, I have not practiced today. I was really really planning on it, but when I had actually worked up the nerve to go and work something out, my sister was in my practice-room. For an entire two hours. I realize that there’s a stand in there, but she could easily take that stand in to her room, and I could use a folding-crappy one or something. It’s just really a pain in the ass to play in any other upstairs room of our house aside from my good-ol practice room. The violin is much more portable than the cello. However, there is also my own little problem of being kind of a wuss, and not going in and suggesting this to her. So, I resolve to do that next time she’s home and taking up my practice-space/time. Muah! I have to learn Der Rosenkavalier!!! *sob* Strauss will be my downfall.
Something that sucks: For Chicago Youth Symphony on Sunday, I have a cello sectional from 2:30-4:30. Phil has a viola section from 4:30-6:30. We have chamber rehearsals starting at 11. And we’re carpooling together. That really sucks for both of us. I suppose it’ll be a good opportunity to get a lot of good reading done, though, in addition to the car-reading I always get done. And OH MY GOD! I just realized something totally catastrophic about my audition on the 12th! AAAAAH! *runs off to freak out*
