A Short Wednesday Post
Tonight is Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Bonfire Night, which we have yet to experience in our new home. I'm sure Olga is looking forward to it. She loves explosions. (NOT!) We've been hearing select pops and crackles over the last several nights, and apparently many people celebrated Bonfire Night over the weekend -- but I expect plenty of activity tonight, too.
It's also another practice day for the faculty/staff chorus, so I am zipping off to work early in order to practice this afternoon. Our performance is on the 20th. I am not crazy about this going-to-work-early thing, so I'll be happy when it's past! I do feel like I am finally learning my parts, though, so hopefully I won't sound like a wounded moose when the time comes to sing in front of people.
