Last night my internet petered out at about 12:45 a.m. I hadn't blogged yet. So I sat and stared at the computer for about fifteen minutes, ate an oatmeal cookie, and went to bed.
Yesterday Michela and I made it to the solo and ensemble concert to see Kelsey sing without seconds to spare. We ran into the black box theatre just as she was beginning "1234." I am continually amazed by the talent of my friends and the people around me. Is it normal for high school students to do things as well or better than most adults? I finally got my copy of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius back after its being lent out for a year. It looks like it went through the washer. Or like it was chewed by a dog. I love this book. I just started You Shall Know Our Velocity, Dave Eggers' first novel. It is amazing and also heartbreaking. I'm only a little ways into it but I can already tell it's going to be depressing. Oh well, I love his writing.
Yesterday I drove a lot. And I discovered the solution to not being able to hear the music because of the noise of the open window: turn the volume up. Thus, my perfect summer driving combination is loud music, open window, sunglasses. Now I need to take a shower to get ready for what is actually today, June 3.
