Topic: General Silver linings

10:32am, Monday 9 October 2006

The other day, I knocked my portable hard disk (for home PC backups) off the top of the filing cabinet and it fell about five feet to the floor (crash). Amazingly, gravity didn't win - the disk still works and I was able to restore a file from it yesterday.

On Saturday, my car lit a warning light which I didn't recognise - I had to look it up in the manual. "Warning! Exhaust system fault. Your emissions may be affected - consult a dealer immediately." I ignored my emissions and carried on to Tesco's, cursing technology and fickle vehicles all the way. Today the light is not lit! Everything's fine! (I hope...)

Junk body text:

Ugly as a mud fence. Shall I compare thee to a summer's day.

Nice juxtaposition.

Topic: Music A plague on CD reissues

4:24pm, Tuesday 3 October 2006 (Updated 9:46am, Wednesday 4 October 2006)

I've just bought a CD second-hand from someone in the office upstairs, and I'm irritated to find that the track I particularly wanted from it is missing. I guess it's a reissue that's been butchered edited from the original track listing. OK, I only spent £1, but still... If anyone's got a copy of Sky volume 2 that does have the Rameau "Gavotte & Variations" then please please can I have a copy?

Update: A very kind gentleman (who I won't embarrass by naming) has let me have a copy of the missing track. Thank you!

This office considers that orange and geranium flavoured chocolate is "too weird", "tastes of old people", or "what geranium?"

Topic: Music Lesson report from Gina

Our intrepid recorder teacher reports from the first lesson of term:

"We worked through the lesson plan, missing out all the bits which used recorders."

What is it they say? Things can only get better?
