"Art is the water that washes away the dust of everyday life."

So, I decided to take everyone's advice and get one of these things. Supposedly they're better than xanga, but we'll see. I don't know how often I'll update, between my CRAZY schedele and still keeping up with xanga, but I'll try to get on here occasionally.

Mom and I get free tickets to the symphony tonight from a friend of a friend. It was a Pops concert, and Michael McDonald, the former lead singer of the Dooby Brothers (I think?), was the guest artist. They have a new conductor, and I decided that it would be ultra cool to play under him someday. The music they played by themselves was really amazing. Williams, Rossini, Dvorak, Williams again, and Berlin. Really awesome pieces. Then after intermission McDonald came on, and he was great. He sang a bunch of Motown stuff, which I wasn't sure I'd like, but it was all fun to listen to. So, besides Mom getting us lost, yet again, trying to find TPAC (which she's been to 1000 times...), driving the wrong way on a one way street, and being in the "straight only" lane on Gay street (I thought that was ironic) while trying to make a left turn, it was a successful evening. A good mother-daughter bonding night out, which we haven't had for fun in a while.
