Four days
Thursday. Groundhog's Day. I went on my monthly outing with omahas. It was a full and fun evening. I was introduced to fried eel (yummy). We hit the Mix for ice cream, Tubs for a hot soak, and the Grind to dance the night away.

Friday. Fish Friday. Dinner was yummy. Yamarashi-chan insisted that I be the one to read to her, and so we went thru half a chapter of The Silver Chair, me reading aloud while she followed along silently.

Saturday. The first annual Science Fiction Short Film Festival. They sold out, filling the Cinerama, leaving friends of mine missing out. Of the shorts, I think Cost of Living was the best one, but I could pick apart several flaws in it, that blunt the "ouch" of the story.

Sunday. The piano salon. I am now done with the performance piece, and am moving on to the next, the well-known Baroque piece, Petzold's Minuet in G Major. After the salon, I ended up hanging out at the Metaphorist, watching the Super Bowl. We wuz robbed. After the game, I went for another hot soak with a `phorst regular, and played "truth for truth".

Monday. Back to the weekday cycle...

Fried eel, yuck, I could never imagine eating that. Broiled eel, on the other hand, is yummy. Unagi in its many forms is good eatin'.

I assume piano salon is the same thing as a recital? At any rate I am happy you are continuing to make progress. I didn't watch the Super Bowl. I looked at books instead.

Almost the same. The difference is, instead of performing for an audience, everyone who comes, plays. (My teacher has mostly adult students, instead of kids with parents.)

Congratulations on the salon!

We were at the Film Festival too. What flaws did you pick out in "Cost of Living"? I think that was my favorite piece as well, though I also liked "Microgravity" and "Neoplasia", and "Welcome to Eden" was amusing.
