i am typing from my little office, also known as "the room sammy lived in."
linds--you can still use the LJ name link, if you'd like.
Oh, I know. I just thought the sentence flowed better without it. =)
Yes! And when I saw his last name in the program, I suddenly realized that my sister and roommate both knew him, 'cause they were all working at Pick
at the same time. The world is a pea.
Whoa. Hi, Molly! This is Maya . . .
you mean mark's molly? i'm not her. if you're talking to me. which you might not be.
Oh! Sorry. Errr . . . I actually have no idea who you are, and I guessed that you might be Molly, but I clearly guessed wrong. Hi.
Don't mind leadsynth
. When we were fourteen (fourteen!), she also thought Beck and Jeff Beck were the same person.
Yeah, well, you thought the Carole King lyric was "I feel the earth move under my shoes" and not the correct, "I feel earth move under my FEET."
So not the worst misconstrued lyric you could have called me on.

Re: "I know about disco!"
I guess I figured that classic Carole King lyrics are more, you know, sacred than VH lyrics.
it's my friend rosemary!
My girlfriend is an euphonium player. Right now has a beat up baritone horn. I keep trying to get her to play the melody from Rock-It, by Herbie Hancock. It would be so great.
Hi, Mark! =)
Yeah, I saw the beat-up baritone when we were visiting. It was cool. I have an old beat-up cornet at home, too. Valves barely work -- I should take it to someone who can get it into shape again.
Also, Herbie Hancock went to my college! Woo!
Also, this post reads like one of those horrible brag-about-your-perfect-family holiday newsletters. I'm tempted to write the glass-half-empty "inverse" of this post, but I'll hold off because I'm tactful like that. =p
I'm tempted to write "Bite me", but actually, you're kinda right. Heh. And that would actually be really funny if it weren't, you know, about us.
But this is different from the whole family-newsletter thing, because those are manufactured, and this is not; it all came out in a rush of emotion. In fact, this is edited down from the original, which had even more good things crammed into it, but I decided to go for style points instead.
Ho, ho, your icon's a ho.
I think it's nice to celebrate one's own successes and the successes of loved ones and friends. No one else will ever care, so it's good to sow seeds of goodness wherever one can possibly do so.
Once my years of famine are over, you can fully expect laser light shows and fog machines when I post about my successes!
