Memememeeee...

I've received requests for a concert review, but I'm not writing one. I've actually tried writing it several times, but it keeps coming out A) boring or B) whiney. So I'm just not writing one. I could sum up what would otherwise be a lot of uninteresting and/or whiney rambling by saying that...

1. I love singing...so it shouldn't matter that none of my friends were able to come hear me.
2. I sing in a kickass section...even if a little group of us were off by a solid measure in one song (Rewriting Handel mid-performance? Highly entertaining, but not entirely recommended! :) -- we sounded amazing anyway.
3. I sing with a good group...and I think the audience enjoyed our performance.

...and even if they didn't? I sure as heck did. So there.

'Nuff said? Good. Moving on...

I found a meme on someone else's blog...and they'd gakked it from someone else's blog...and I don't know how these things start, so let's pretend that this totally gives credit to the person who thought it up:

Meme Concept: Go back through your blogs from this year and take down the title from the first post in each month and form your own little "Year In Review" blogstyle.

Here's mine...

Present Year
Monkey See
RIF
Acropalyptic
Improvisation
...heads...heads...heads...heads...
Ah Well
Tonight
Rules of the Road
Follow Me
Crash
The IT Solution

...I'm actually kind of psyched for how it came out (though I'm now wishing I'd named the ignition-mishap blog something else...just because it would have more obviously fit with the car/road theme that the last 4 months seem to have going).

More interesting than a concert review? Meh...maybe not...but it was fated to be navel gazing one way or the other, so it might as well be something someone else might be inspired to use...

So go on! Toddle off and post your own "Year In Review" and see what your blogyear looked like!

I'm sorry, man. :( I love singing, too, and I still hate when people don't come hear me. One of these years I'm going to take a year off from Revels and just go to all my friends' concerts. Also, do you think your director would let me sneak in for the Faure? I mean, into the choir? I heart the Faure.

Concert review - on target, Year in Review, cool. You guys did rock the house! Faure could use a couple of more GOOD 2nds I think.

Yes...yes...a thousand times yes. The soprano section -- whichever half you choose to sing in -- would adore having you. Please come back. Yes. :D

I'm sorry I didn't make it. I just need to put the dates in my calendar and make it a part of my schedule. I let them sneak up on me and don't give them due credit. Nothing is more important than participating in my friend's lives. I'm sorry.

Pssht! Silly girl... Ocean City and massages? Honey, I might have missed my own concert for that... People have stuff going on...it's no big.

See? This is why I resisted posting about it. I didn't want anyone to feel like they had to apologize... Grr...

Yeah, my thoughts about people coming to concerts vary depending on the concert. I was totally annoyed in grad school when friends didn't come to choir concerts, because they cost two bucks and they were in a beautiful church right in the middle of campus. I mean, cmon now, anyone can take a two-dollar nap. I eventually had to give myself a stern lecture about expectations from friends, and I've gotten much better about it. I really really really really really want everyone to come see Revels, because I love it so much I want to share it with everyone, and I know most people will like it, but I know it's a busy time of year and it's also somewhat more than $2. And I don't see all of my friends' concerts and shows and whatnot, either, although I'm always happy when I do.

Merry Christmas! I took Cece to rehearsal for her school's Christmas Pageant -St Leo the Great School -so cute, so cool, too much! She is the littlest angel and gets to lead the others on when their part comes. It was amazing.
