People are so strange. "Hey, I have an idea. Let's combine our ironing business (?) with a party supply store!"
Doesn't it look unbearably steamy in there?
Yesterday was the big holiday concert for the music department at school. I went, as usual, and as usual it was interesting to finally hear the students play the pieces Dave has been talking about for weeks. This year's concert was a bit more of a challenge because it got moved up several weeks on the school calendar -- the students lost three or four weeks of rehearsal time. But they did a good job anyway, tackling some serious music including Handel, Mozart and Shostakovich.
It also gave all the music department teachers (and me) a chance to get together for a pub outing afterwards, which was fun. Not as fun as getting a tattoo at Tattoo Tec, maybe, but you can't have everything.
Yesterday morning was a day of catching up -- on sub reports and payments, on vacuuming, on random household tasks. And today is a teacher planning day at school, so the students aren't there and I haven't had to find any subs. Day off! Woo hoo!
