Today is my birthday, and I’m having a birthday lunch with CD and also going on a walk with Janalisa, and there is Tuesday class, for which I haven’t done my homework. At the same time, I have a whole bunch of stuff to do for my Northerners with a 3/9 launch date, and papers to grade, and the ABNA deadline creeping up, and another website to do for The Computer Guy. I am therefore going to work fiendishly this morning in hopes of getting much of the work done before the playing begins.

We had a fairly good rehearsal last night, it seemed to me, except that there was someone sitting behind me (and slightly to the left) who was flat much of the time. It is not comme il faut to turn around in rehearsal and hiss “Tune it or die,” especially among singers.

So, on to fiendish work.
