Tonight I had band rehearsal and it was the director's birthday (she turned 55! Fyi - she was also my 5th/6th grade band teacher). She was away for part of rehearsal because of parent/teacher conferences so we had plans to all play Happy Birthday in the key of Bb concert when she showed up and gave us the downbeat of the first song she wanted to rehearse.

Well, she showed up way later than she wanted to and we had rehearsed almost all of the songs except two and another song that we skipped the middle 3 movements. So she chooses a piece where only the flutes and clarinets come in at the beginning with this light, happy skippy type tune lol... but we all waited to put our instruments up at the last second so that it wasn't obvious... and the SHOCK on her face when it was Happy Birthday instead was just priceless! There's a video - will post a link when it gets shared by that person.

Mostly Happy Birthday... at the "Happy Birthday Dear _____", some peoples "play by ear" skills went out the window - mine included. Five semesters of aural comprehension has definitely drained out of my system if it can't figure out Happy Birthday. But then again, that was figuring out the song by writing it down on staff paper... I couldn't coordinate it with my instrument on the fly. Aural comprehension was my arch nemesis during university. *shakes Tarundoru Bat at it*

Also, +1000 words exactly after my latest post today. WHOO!!! The end is in sight for Ch. 2!!! And the 65% mark for Ch. 9!

Hi!

Okay, thanks for letting me know. This thing runs for a while so I'll watch and see if something from the past pops up that I've always wanted. It's too bad there isn't a picture of the bromide set so I can see what pictures I have a choice of getting.

Hullo thar back at you! :)

Oh? You already bought two orders from that shop for the spring season? I look forward to seeing what they are and hoping that new things do pop up. I refuse to pay 2200 yen for a hand mirror :/

I'm glad your director liked the "Happy Birthday" song you played.

Nice banners! What is NaFEWriMo?

Sorry it toook too long to get back to you. Things have been crazy, and I've been having too many other internet addictions. Even worse, the computer screen hurts my eyes, making it hard for me to write.

Your bridesmaids and birthday dresses were pretty. Sorry you had to sub for a bad class with unclear information on your birthday. I'm glad you got some nice cards and presents. In case my e-card didn't reach you, here it is:

Some music without rhythm sounds good, too. However, I prefer structure and order. Those words can really be interpretted in more than one way.

Thanks! My family makes it sound as if I'm irresponsible and self-centered to be having fun. They have said, "Everyone makes mistakes," but they also get after me for every single mistkake I make. For that, they would indirectly say that I make more or worse mistakes than anyone else, or that the mistake I made is one that shouldn't be allowed.

OMG Massu's only 22. I feel so old and pervy. >__>

Hymn! Your profile is like a million times more distracting. I could not look away.

Oh man, I was just playing Happy Birthday on the accordion. Honestly, it sounded like I was harming a bunch of cats. What are those two notes?!

Anyway, it was really sweet of you guys to surprise your director like that. I bet she really appreciated it. :)

Way to go on your writing! That's amazing! /hugs

Aww... *pats pats* You're fine. You don't have a large age distance from him. I actually thought he was going on 21 or 20, so I'm glad he's going on 22 lol.

Lololol, you liked it that much? :D *is proud* Lots and lots of hard work went into that thing so I'm glad it turned out well in my first attempt at monochromatic-ness. And then you add in the Shirtless Tenimyu Boys banner, my Tenimyu Rikkai Cast and Hyotei Cast banners, my Top 5 of Rikkai anime, and my Sanada NaNo and Atobe NaFE banners, and yeah... you have a very distracting profile! XDDDD I really need to get back to this website at some point, but I made a ridiculous "took a week and have never done anything that large scaled before" profile layout of Tenimyu Rikkaidai. More to distract you with.

I hope you become awesome on the accordion! Awww... such are the joys of learning an instrument, especially a difficult one like the accordion. Oh gosh, I dunno. I don't have my instrument out to test it out... I'll figure it out tomorrow.

She loved it. She said that she has always liked how her birthday always seems to be rehearsal day for some band she's involved it so she can share the happiness with everyone. Plus someone bought a big cake for the occasion so we all got to eat it :) I love free cake.

*hugs* Thanks! I'm really running out of writing gas (not ideas thank gods), but just because I've been writing practically every day since November. Must. keep. working. *determined*
