Spring Break

Technically I'm on spring break, but my schedule is altered by only about 25%, since I still have tons of work to do. But because I save time by not having to travel to and attend class, I'm guessing I'll be able to catch up.

The best part about spring break is that I get to attend/lead the book chat this month on Evil Editor's blog. We'll be discussing The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. Awesome.

In other news, I've lost 8 pounds, our water is ice-cold this morning, and I have yet to have coffee. Also, must search for new musicians for my composing gig, at the suggestion of one of my professors. I'm getting excited (and nervous) about my orchestration class's upcoming recording with musicians from the Lyric and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Should be fun, if nothing embarrassing happens. Judging from my professor's and the conductor's comments, the possibilities and variations on that are endless.

Isn't spring terrific? Just to say, I'll be joining you on a break next week. I may even don shorts if the sun comes out.

Yay for Spring! Yay for breaks of all kinds that don't involve important things like bones!

And I like this week's button. heh. I wonder how many people don't actually get it.

Wow - the recording idea sounds like a fantastic opportunity! You go, girl. Just sit down in it and wallow in the pleasure of having that happen.

I'll be there with ya on the Gaiman discussion. It's my first read of that author, and I absolutely loved it.

What day are we doing it?
