January 25, 2006 at 6:37 PMGreetings from Heidelberg, Germany! I am going to be living here for 6 months while my dad works at the university of Heidelberg. Some of you already knew this because Carley revealed this in a certain discussion. How did you even find that? I posted it months ago!
I had a picture to post of facewood (have you ever seen that horrid stuff?) but it's on the wrong computer. Pity, it scares me and I thought that you all would like to see it.
In other news (you are going to think I'm crazy) I had another dream that Joshua Bell was on the Oprah show. It's destiny! If I can't get even get Joshua Bell on the Oprah show...I will not die happy. You must aid me in my quest! www.oprah.com
Man, I packed so much music! Like three binders full not to mention all the books. Seems like everything from A major scales to Zigeunerweisen (it is ALWAYS 'eu,' Linda).
I won't have internet for another 2-3 weeks, but there is an internet café near to our rented house. I'm afraid to leave this site for too long...I came back here and had absolutely no idea what was going on. Eric is now 'ES the paranoid' and is no longer blogging? The Evil One is making crazy pictures?! What else has happened in my absence?
Now I'll be on roughly the same time as Bram, so I'll be able to catch him before things are up too long. You're safe with me, violinist.commies! No more "on-edgeness" I hope.
Have a great time! One of my life goals is to live abroad for at least a year, and I'll definitely do it before my girls are grown.
I knew it! The navy it was!
In addition to the ES changes, we've learned that virtuosos are also Prefects, that "Hiefitz" [sic] bow-arm "sucks", and that CCM is immoral. But I guess CCR is still OK 'cuz there wuz no mention of them. We also larned all 'bout Jesus in ways we never wanted to.
That's the view from the trenches.
Something else you missed: Bach is dead.
