Violinist

Belated Valentines

I haven't been online in a couple of days, unless I've posted from work, which I don't think I have. I'm feeling kind of blah lately, not much interested in doing anything but sleeping. I still have the stupid cold, though it's in the departing stages. The departure is taking a very long time, though. I hope it will be gone by the date of the voice competition, but at this rate, I'm not sure if it will be.

Bleah.

Virtual Valentines gifts to characters are thus a little late.

SPH folks--Dude, they have the perfect gift for Accia Zabini on the virtual gifts page! You'll know which one I mean when you see it. I was very tempted to send it to her, even though I have no characters who would do that.

*looks at characters* "You wouldn't, would you?"

Characters: "Um...no. Eww."

Me: "Good characters!" *pets them*

I tried to find something suitable for Snape, but there wasn't anything--unless he likes a pint of stout.

Internet: Houston is under a proposal to go wi-fi citywide. I do hope this happens; it would be fantastic. This is one idea from Gov. White that I definitely like.

Voice Lesson: I learned the ornamentations for the second verse of "Nel Pur' Ardor" today. Amazingly, it wasn't as difficult as I had expected it to be. My teacher's really good.

The CD of Zaide that I ordered came in yesterday, so I'll have to load "Ruhe sanft, mein holdes Leben" into my iPod and start listening to it.

Crawling off to bed now. Good night!
