We just went to a great concert last night...The St. Lawrence String Quartet.(soooooo much better than listening or watching an orchestra concert!!!!! Those are as boring as...hmmmm, me! ha lol) They are awesome! They are a lot of fun to watch too. The 1st violinist, Geoff Nuttall, moves so much...he lifts his feet off the floor and looks like he's going to get up and dance around! LOL I wonder if he ever falls off his chair...? The 2nd violinist, Barry Shiffman, his bow arm looks like Mrs. Malleway's( Mallaway's? not sure, anyway...). Mr. Spahr looks kinda like their cellist, Christopher Costanze. Except Mr. Spahr doesn't hunch over so much.
lol, I get lectured on that all the time! "Leah, you can play thumb position hunched over...Can you play it sitting normally now?"
They played 4 pieces. 2 Mozart, 1 Reval (sp?), and 1 Shoshtokovich. The latter 2 (sp?) were the best. Maybe. lol. It was fun. The only 'un-fun' part was rushing home from Kokomo and having 20 min. to take care of the animals, change, eat dinner, and do my hair. Got everything done except the dinner part (bad idea!). I'm not really sure how my hair looked 'cause I left my bag @ the church after spending the night w/Addie and my curling iron and mirror were in there. lol, oh well. It was fun anyway. I g2g finnish school. See ya!

Well, that and Algebra. Addie- can you bring Apologetic notes so I can see what he talked about? O yeah, I finally got my books!

Today, we went to see "The Merchant of Venice." It was sooo good! I know, everyone thinks I'm a weirdo(I read his plays and sonnets and like them...yes Megan, I LIKE them lol) but, I loved it! I think I liked it better without the costumes and props. It really helps to concentrate (spelling?) on the words and actions that the actors are doing without the distractions of props and such. But I have friends who don't like it w/o the costumes. Anyways, thats about it. But it was awesome! I loved it! If you want to go (nobody again, knows my blog exists b/c Addie- I can't get your e-mail to work! : P) tomorrow night, @ IUK it's playing again. I want to go again. ok, i'll stop boring u...ttyl
