Now, suppose it's time to make #introduction :)
I'm an amateur classical #pianist. Started learning properly at 34 and cannot imagine stopping any time soon. Love Fryderyk #Chopin. Admire Arthur #Rubinstein and Emil #Gilels, and am trying to model my playing on them (extremely arrogant, I know 😅).
Am I the only one who keeps hearing "Les Temps des Cathedrales" in her head?
I'm so much annoyed by the people on the bus who stay seated up until the moment the driver closes the doors and starts moving away from the bus stop. And then they jump up and run to the driver demanding he stops the bus, because they need to get off at this very stop.
Added bonus if they have been loudly talking on the phone throughout the whole ride.
Dear neighbours, please tell me about your siblings?
One thing especially interests me: do you have any music (maybe coupled with a particular memory) associated with your sibling?
Recently I caught myself sometimes replaying one scene in my mind.
A bright summer day. Together with my sister we're flying down the interstate in my car, but she's driving. Audiosystem is on, and we're both screaming along: "I was cryin' when I met you, now I'm tryin' to forget you!" And laughing, laughing...
At the side of the road I go every day there's a billboard with a headless (but of course!) photo of a woman in an evening gown with an endless skirt cut, pretending to play a cello.
I've seen it for million times, but I still don't know what's being advertised.
Because the only thing I notice is that she holds the bow incorrectly! :)
Oh, and by the way. Today I have bought a self-teaching textbook to finally start learning #German. :)
I see that @Tusky has improved greatly. Automatic day/night switch, pick up where you left off on the timeline... And it looks very neat, the best looking app for Mastodon. Almost perfect. If only it had the ability to fetch my Twitter timeline... lol
But seriously. I see that lots of work has been done and lots of efforts. Thank you!
Local colleagues' reaction to my new hairstyle was predictable.
"Did you decide to change your style?"
(What does it look like?)
"That's a bold decision."
(That was the point.)
"Do you not regret cutting your hair?"
"You should start wearing skirts."
(It's not your business what I chose to wear. And no. I don't wear skirts.)
Have I said recently how I hate Windows 10? It makes switching between big monitor and the laptop's own screen as difficult as possible. Correct resolution is only achieved after reboot. Fonts look ugly until, once again, you reboot in your current resolution. Older apps' and newer apps' UI look like absolute mess. Ugh!
Window 7 looked better, and I've never had any issue switching between working at the office with an external monitor and on the laptop on the go.
The first #pine that has started growing these... I don't even know how they are called in English. :) It's like some proto branches.
Anyway. The most important thing is that it's growing! Upwards! :)
