I was on the way to my friend's gig (more on that in a sec) and my shuffle happened to stop on one of his songs and I was totally in the right mood for his humour.
I ended up giggling helplessly, on the train, in front of a fair few people and I just couldn't stop.
The one I quoted in the title is one of my favourites.
Extra points if you can guess exactly where I ended up hysterical. Shouldn't be *too* hard if you know me at all...
A Christmas Carol also made me laugh quite a bit.
So there you have my train trips into the city.
What I actually *did* today was work (teaching job) and then rushing to this mini concert thing they were putting on in order to support my students (one way to make me feel like a real teacher...) but managed to be too late to see them play. Sadface. She said it was 'okay' though, which coming from this student means she was probably totally fine XD
It's interesting listening to the standard of the other students. Pretty common music school concert, some were terrible (nerves or poor teaching you never really know), some were decent, and there were one or two that screamed 'so much potential'. Pity that the one that jumped out at me as 'she could be amazing' had a shocking bowhold (DOES NO ONE ELSE TEACH PEOPLE TO BEND PINKIES GEEZ), and will need to change teachers to improve much more. Which knowing the way these things work, she may not any time soon. Which makes me kind of sad, tbh. I think the piano teaching is much more consistent, there were some pretty good piano students.
Then it was me driving all the way home, dropping off my violin, and then jumping on the train back into the city to go watch my friend, B, sing his first solo jazz gig. He has such a gorgeous (countertenor) voice, it was a perfect way to unwind. I've been wanting to hear him sing for a while. He's also adorable.
although I will never not find it amusing how many 'effeminate gay male' stereotypes he fits. never. he just doesn't give a shit either which is part of what I love about him
I actually teared up at one point. Oh and apparently we're doing a 'fancy afternoon tea' because we managed to miss each others' 21sts and haven't actually caught up in a few months. <3
That's all, folks.
