September 28, 2012: People Who Take Your Place As A Dishwasher

In case you didn't know.
I really, really don't like doing dishes.
At all.

But today, when I was going to be doing so many dishes I wanted to explode, a lovely friend of mine stepped in and let me do something else.

It made me so happy.

Thank you, friend.

I know I capitalized the title of this post wrong.
Get over it.
Love you all!

Septemeber 27, 2012: Lyrics That Don't Make Much Sense

Sometimes something can be grammatically correct, and still make no sense whatsoever. Sometimes songs do that. And usually it makes for a terrible song. But every once in a while a really good song comes up in my life that is like that.

September 27, 2012: Pictures

They are a wonderful way to let out ones creative side.

Or to help one remember family, friends, and beautiful memories.

September 26, 2012: Rocks

Grey, lumpy, heavy things that are just begging to be used in almost every object lesson.

September 25, 2012: Time Spent Talking

Too often, I go to a friend's house wanting to watch a movie, or playing a game.
Rarely do I go and just talk.
It can be quite refreshing to do so.

September 23, 2012: Finding Things Early

There's an album that isn't due to be coming out in the US until tomorrow.
But I found it today.

September 22, 2012: Chairs

Today, I was up and about, walking, dancing, running, standing, and dancing and standing and walking for almost twelve hours straight.
How have I never realized how beautiful chairs are?

September 20, 2012: Twenty Dollars

Once upon a time, there was a knight who went on a crazy awesome adventure, battled mosters, slew dozens of rocks, and saved three hundred people.
Then he found twenty dollars.
The end.

September 20, 2012: Oatmeal with brown sugar

The  perfect thing to soothe a sore throat when one is ill.

September 17, 2012: Tuna

Fish. The only fish I am willing to eat on a somewhat regular basis.

September 16, 2012: Resumes

They're actually kind of a pain.
But you know. I'm grateful for them anyway.

September 15, 2012: Unnaturally Large Headgear

Today, I wore a hat that made me taller by two or three feet. It also made it hard to see, hear, and dance.

Yay for being the Nutcracker!

September 13, 2012: Car Heaters

It's early in the morning, and your fingers are freezing. As you drive down the canyon, you yearn for it.

The car heater.

As the engine warms up, you flip the switch, but it's cold air blowing in your face, and you flinch.

The car heater.

Eventually, you begin to feel heat, gratefully you turn the heater to full and bask in its soul-warming flow.

The car heater.

September 12, 2012: S'mores

Sugar, sugar, and sugar combined to make... sugar.

September 11, 2012: Dust in the Air

When you start coughing.
When your mouth is dry.
When your eyes sting.
When tiny particles of dust are clogging up your senses and making you angsty.
You're living life.

September 10, 2012: Kind Police Officers

Today, I drove to rehearsal, parked, turned off my car, grabbed my binder, locked the car doors, and went to rehearsal, accidentally leaving my keys in the cup holder.

Fast forward.

Six or seven hours later, I'm frantically searching through a phone book, trying to find the phone number for the nearest police station.

I find it.

I borrow a friend's cell phone.

I call them.

I explain the situation to them:
My car is parked behind the SCERA theatre, and my keys are locked in it. Could somebody please come help me?

I give them all my personal information.

I wait.

And wait.

And watch as a police car drives into the wrong parking lot.

My friend hands me her cell phone.

The lady tells me that the police officer can't find my car.

I tell her the police officer is in the wrong parking lot.

She tells me she'll tell the police officer that.

I wait again.

The police officer finally comes to the right place.

He looked like a slightly intimidating, but not too scary kind of police officer.

And then he asked me to sign a paper that said I wouldn't hold him responsible if he damaged my car.

And suddenly, I was terrified.

What if this man has me sign the paper, then pulls out a baseball bat and destroys my windshield?

What if he dropped eighteen bowling balls on my poor little vehicle?

What if he calls it NAMES!?

I hesitantly signed the paper.

Then he did some cool stuff with a weird yellow thing and a three-foot long little rod thing.

And he unlocked my doors.

He told me to have a nice night.

Then he got back in his car.

As I drove away, I couldn't help but think "Thank you, kind police officer, for not dropping bowling balls on my car.  I don't think I would have been able to handle that."

September 8, 2012: Conveyor Belt Toasters

I didn't know they existed before. But they rock.

September 7, 2012: Gummy Bears

Despite (un)popular belief, it is, in fact, possible to have too many gummy bears.
But that doesn't mean you can't love them until you hit that point.

September 6, 2012: Cousins

Sometimes you see them frequently, sometimes you see them less frequently. But you're related to them, and can be yourself around them. Monkeys.

September 5, 2012: Road Trips

Sitting in a car for hours on end can be a wonderful way to not be in school.

September 4, 2012: Music Store People Who Know What They're Doing

Today, I visited two music stores, looking for the same thing.

At the first store, the experience went kind of like this:

Me: "Hi, do you have [CERTAIN SHEET MUSIC]?"

Employee: "Ummmm. If we do, it'll be over here.... Yeah, I'm not seeing it. Oh, wait. Is this it? I think this is it."

Me: "No, that's not the right one."

Employee: "Huh. Well... Um..."

(This continued on for a little while, and he wasn't a new employee. He also asked his co-workers, who all had almost exactly the same reaction)

The second store experience went like this:

Me: "Hi, do you have [CERTAIN SHEET MUSIC]? Oh! It's right here."

Employee: "No, that's not the one you're looking for. That's the cut version that people use for auditions. If you want the whole thing, it's right over here."

Me: "Oh, wow! Thanks."

Thanks, employee I don't know.

Sometimes, cars have troubles and refuse to start like they should.
Thats when jumper cables save your booty.

For those moments when you hop out of the shower in the wee hours of the morning and need something fuzzy.... stat!

September 2, 2012: Tin Whistles

Irish music is great. And glorious. And beautiful. And wouldn't be complete without a tin whistle or two.
