There-Drama. March 26, 2007

Before I go into it, I would like to say that the recital went really well. For ME. I played the pieces much better than I had played them before. My friends M. and B. came and we were blown away. . .by the fact that some of the groups were terrible. Others were excellent. The not-so great groups seemed to have one person in them with little to no experience and that one player was the cog in their wheel.

I DON’T think I was that cog!! I’m gonna be honest here, and say what’s on my mind. The Flautist was snobby and not “all that,” and kept blaming ME for messing up when it was HE who was doin’ the messin’!!!

You know the type of dude I’m talking about. The kind of dude who affects an almost-British accent and corrects me whenever I said, “Saint-Saens.”

“You mean ‘Saaaauugggh Saaauughh?’ ”

No. Saint-Saens. I took French for 5 years.

And then he goes and can’t hit a lot of the notes!

So we filled out a midterm questionairre.

I filled it out honestly.

I was removed from my group.

So I was right.

Downtown Music.

  1. Just remember,

    The lights are much brighter there,
    You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares,
    So go…

    Thanks, Petula. Wait, aren’t you guys from the UK?

  3. Well, bless my cotton socks and I’ll go to the foot of our stair, so we are! Jolly dee, what-ho, stiff upper lip and all that, don’t you know.

    Downtown was the first single my sister bought. I didn’t know it was about New York, or that you’d probably heard it in commercials recently, until I looked it up on Wikipedia about a minute ago.

  4. P.S. – Just did some maths – my sister was about 8 or 9 when she bought it, so most likely got it after seeing this on the TV — http://youtube.com/watch?v=8GVE7lRZuFM

    I don’t remember it – I was 2.
