Clarinet
buzzed, B&W
hairylunch
So, I took my snowboard in to get it waxed, and while I was at the store noticed there was a music store two doors down, so I decided to stop in and get some clarinet reeds. My parents brought my clarinet out when they were here in November, but I hadn't played it. Anyway, I get home and mess around with it for a bit, and I'm slightly surprised that I remember most of the fingerings - there was definitely some fumbling with some of the alternate/chromatic fingerings, but no big lapses. I guess I shouldn't be surprised in that I did play from fifth grade through my senior year in high school (though I didn't play my junior year). Not surprisingly, my embrochure was weak, so my jaw is a little sore even from the half hour or so I messed around, my breath support is nowhere near where it used to be, my tonguing is heavy, slow, and clumsy, and my right thumb is sore.

On an unrelated note, Jessica asked me today if I was dating anyone. Being my usual self, I dodged the question a bit, asking her back "I don't know, you tell me - who am I dating?" She dodged a bit to start, before asking if I was dating Kelly, then Mel, then Christine . . . funny stuff.

I think it's time you got a pretend internet gf so everyone leaves you alone :)

I think you need to post in your journal so I know what's going on in your life :P

That's what the nudge button is for.

If I had anything interesting (other than ranting about how slow old people drive) I would post it.

I'm sure in another week or two I'll make a post about how I was rejected for a promotion and the person who wound up getting it couldn't do their old job and I worry about the future of Honda, but I need to wait for those events to unfold first :).

Ern-is-the-Burn

It's time everyone knows that we are dating. Since I'm posting anonymously, it's up to you.

glad to see I made the list of possible girlfriends. That's, sadly, the most eventful thing to happen in MY romantic life since I was home for Christmas break..

Love, Another Girl Whom Shall Remain Anonymous
