First off- Notes of the musical kind.
Me really likey the drum corps thing!
I know it makes me a full-on nerd and a “band geek” or worse– a band FAG.
But I don’t care. Tra la la fuck you.
Even though the marching is still a challenge (I am getting nitpicked on everything) it is still fun.
But even FUNNER is the music!
Last night we got in a big arc in the gym and did full out chorale warmups with the whole corps (so loud!)
And then did a run through of the opener for the drum line and instructors.
We got applause.
So much fun! I so completely dig playing balls-out loud! It is what brass players live for.
Secondly– notes to an inconsiderate neighbor.
My apartment building is directly across from a parking garage. The garage is only mesh enclosed, so it is fairly open.
This means that if a car alarm goes off, you can hear it pretty well…
Even inside my building.
Like in my bedroom.
Which faces said parking garage.
I’ve noticed that in times of colder weather (temps below 15F) that one particular vehicle’s alarm starts going off.
One alarm cycle. Every 10 minutes or so.
All night long.
I blogged about this before.
Well, unfortunately it’s been cold this week and the damn alarm has been doing this fun little trick again.
Today, however, I caught the vehicle in the act. A white Jeep Cherokee.
(Oh I got your number now, bitch!)
So this morning I left a polite little note on their windshield describing the issue and asking them to please fix their car alarm.
This was my first volley.
We’ll see if anything comes of it. Heaven help them if it doesn’t.
