the lair of dr vblschrf

well after four hours of saxophoning i can play a note for about 3 seconds before running out of air.

my first instrument ever was clarinet, which i quit after 3 months. i’m getting war flashbacks to 4th grade with this, but it’s far more promising here than it was then.

anyone want to come over this evening? :/

rented an alto saxophone. 

i’ll give it a few months to see how it goes.

I will never forget the time the violins rushed so bad in concert when it came time for the cello soli, we had to become apocalyptica

I am saddened by the fact that I know that’s the Trepak and yours isn’t the only high school orchestra that’s done that.

It was either that or the nutcracker. It is that time of year to start rehearsing for the Christmas show, after all.

Ah yes, the Nutcracker. I can’t wait to hear this year’s round of Christmas Commercials with Altered Lyrics to Nutcracker Songs and get war flashbacks to high school orchestra.

Last night I had a nightmare and the soundtrack was Mozart’s “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” and if that isn’t a sign that I played in a school string orchestra I don’t know what is.

Doctor’s office gave me blood test results but failed to mention a yes or a no on Celiac.

So I ask and they said “Oh the nurse practitioner didn’t say anything about that” 



Princess Tutu is one of those things where you can’t tell people what the story is actually about because it will spoil the entire thing.

So I just have to tell people that it’s about a duck who dances ballet and turns into a fairy princess.

And the terrible thing is that the show perpetuates this falsehood for like the first eight episodes. 

I just woke up from a nap and this was my dream:

I was the Avatar and I was vacationing with my mom in the Marshall Islands, trying to find a place to sit down to eat because all the restaurants wouldn’t let you bring your plate back in from the outside because of some weird rule. But then I saw a bird on the roof of a building there and by making contact with it I was momentarily possessed by Lord Voldemort. Enough to know I was in the Marshall Islands.

So then I remembered that I was the Avatar and that one of Voldemort’s horcruxes was the statue of Aang in the Air Temple in the Marshall Islands, so I ran over there doing that cool air wheel thing Tenzin did in season 1 and destroyed the metal statue by bending it till it melted. Then Voldemort appeared all upset and tried to kill me and I shot some fire at him, then flew away on my glider. Then I woke up.

Three lessons learned:

  1. Voldemort would have been smart to put a horcrux in the freaking MARSHALL ISLANDS. Seriously, who would have guessed to even look there?
  2. Ever since I watched AtLA I always wanted to airbend but let me tell you the firebending and metalbending were pretty darn great. Airbending was still the most fun though.
  3. This is what I get for watching Harry Potter and Avatar in the same day.

I don’t get to find out about my Celiac test results till Monday at the earliest, probably Tuesday. They said I’d know two days ago.


i just want to stay in tonight and sleep but i’ve got work.


looks like the sleep paralysis is back again. fourth night in a row.


in other news i kinda want to rent a saxophone for a few months to see if i could teach it to myself.

not sure if i should go alto or tenor though. i like tenor better, but i don’t know if i have the wind power for it. 

nap only made me feel more sick

guess i’ll try to nap again so at least i don’t have to be awake for this

finally got around to mushishi season 2 and good lord that opening song
