The Bit can now sing much of Widdershins and the Tree Song.

At some point in my life I want to either put together or attend a concert the consists solely of cell-phone ring-tones. Ideally this should be short.

[ profile] touchstone and I have been singing together in the evenings. This makes me deliciously happy because not only is it fun, but we sound damned good.

I suspect that I dislike modern art as much as I do because I don't get the in-joke. I like the surrealist music composers (Cage, for example) because there's a joke there. It's a sideways sort of snicker at music that makes it all good. I hope modern art is the same and that the painters are actually snickers as they paint giant white dots on white canvas.

tLD is currently singing the Hokey Pokey as she puts her bear in and out of various receptacles. Now it is stuck in my head. Dooom.

Had my first voice lesson last night with [ profile] loresinger. The Bit wasn't so sure about the whole thing, but she settled down once we actually started singing, and I think that she'll do better over time. I was thrilled to realize that my range -- while rusty and needing to be polished a little (okay, a lot) -- hadn't collapsed nearly as much as I had feared. Lots of fun. tLD and the kit both enjoyed [ profile] touchstone's drum lesson. Now to find a fiddle and a banjo teacher that will come to the house.

I then spent part of the evening watching The Devil Wears Prada. Luckily, I was also doing weights at the time, so it wasn't a completely wasted hour, but... okay, look.

I understand that some people are Evil Bosses. I can even understand why the Evil Boss in the movie is generally evil. However when she loses her temper over her assistant's inability to find her a flight out of Miami during the middle of a hurricane, I was Done. If there are actually people out there like that, I don't know them, and if I did, I would smack them. The movie goes back tonight with the remainder unwatched because short of Plucky Assistant going on a shooting rampage in the middle of a photo shoot, I just can't come up with an ending that would make me happy.

Still, a good evening all in all.
