My New Best Friends: The Canadians


Nora sent me a link to pictures from Obama’s visit in the Ottawa Citizen.

We both liked this picture of people on a giant snowball trying to get a better view.

Meanwhile, I’m still hard at work trying to learn the hardest part in the hardest piece of choral music ever, the fugue in the Credo section of Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis.

First I had to learn the runs.  But when I try to do them at the speed we’re supposed to do them, I stop sounding like I’m making music.  It’s physically impossible, I tell you.  Once again those must be robots or computers or aliens singing on the recording I have.

Plus, I have a headache.

And I’m stressed out about my book.

And Buddy is having bowel issues, poor thing.

And American Idol is screwing with their voting practices.

But Obama is my president and Canadians are great, so there’s that.
