Wow. What a weekend. So many fun things to do, that I'm afraid I need some recovery time. :)

Today, I have kind of promised myself that I will get down to business really learning some of my new pieces, but I can't seem to motivate myself. Usually, I can do anything thing if I say that after I have learned 10 or so pages I can have a grape vodka with club soda. But today even that is not working.

Wednesday and Thursday, we are in New York, and it will be a fun get away, except that I am really hoping we don't talk about piano the whole time, as I will be with a bunch of pianists the whole time. That could only end in me feeling rather dumb. Perhaps I can run away with Brent for a little while.

In other news, I am not quite sure how it happened, but I have accidentally bought a couple of pretty bags on E-bay lately, and am kind of addicted. This can be quite deadly for a girl who really needs to spend all her extra money on vocal development. I can't stop myself from opening up my favorite searches and looking through bag after bag, barely able to ward off the temptation to click on "place a bid." Because they are such wonderful deals, and such wonderful arm candy, and I am very good at rationalizing any number of things and why I most certainly deserve to have them. But being broke helps keep you from doing dumb things.

It's almost time for lunch!

Arm Candy? What a wonderful phrase...

I'm just going to go tweet about it now
