  • Mood:

a musical week and other random ramblings

  • I was going to buy a flute. Really. I was very close. I even asked Seth if I could.  I was starting to narrow down models I really want a Haynes flute (since I can't afford the Brannen I want), but there was also a Powell and an Altus that would have been great also. A good flute would have been a pretty significant investment for a hobby.  It's been a few years since I've played the flute, and I'm not sure that I'd be any good anymore. Well, I'm pretty sure I'd suck compared to when I was practicing 6-8 hours a day, but I wasn't sure if I'd even be passable.
  • Right.  Anyway.  I'm not buying a flute right now, unless a really good, really cheap one fell into my path and tempted me.  Why have I changed my mind?  I'm getting a piano!!!!!  Yay!!! A friend of mine is moving and can't keep it anymore.  So I'm buying it from her for a reasonable cost, plus the cost of moving it (about $250 to move it). I'm so excited!!!  We don't really have a good place to put it just yet, but that's hardly the point.  The point is that I want it and I'm getting it! :)  We'll stick it in the sunroom temporarily, until we can figure out a better home for it.  But I don't think the sunroom is a good permanent home for it because of the humidity out there. But still, it'll be exciting to have it!!  :)  If we didn't have the damn radiators, I'd know JUST where to put it.  Sigh.
  • Tonight we are going to see The King and I, which makes this a very musical week.  mscongeniality's got me wanting to see My Fair Lady again.  But I only have it on video.  I'll have to get it on DVD eventually. Anyway, I'm excited to see TK&I.  I was supposed to see it in NY when I was a kid for one of Yul Brynner's last performances.  I can't remember what happened that kept us from going, but I have also regretted not being able to see it.  I'm not a huge fan of Sandy Duncan (who is starring as Anna), but I've always wanted to see a stage production of the show, so yay for me.
  • Holidays are coming up and SOON.  Must start meal planning.
