I love music! For the last two hours, though, I have been tormented by someone who plays like Liberace (lots of banging and crescendos) on the piano that happens to be on my floor in the building. Dude, you're killing me. I started to come up with a mental list of all the things I could do to make the music stop. These included knocking the legs off the piano bench while he was playing, shooting him with my flingshot monkey, and jumping down on the bench next to him and join in with chopsticks. :)
A less threatening use of my time, seemed to go outside. So I did. I sat on the bench for a couple of minutes. In that time, I was accosted by three groups of people looking for directions to other buildings and I actually knew where they were which was a bonus. For one guy, I offered to show him. It was about 1500 steps from where I was. He actually wasn't that nice, but I chalked it up to his anxiety about where he'd left his daughter in a information session.
On my way back, I decided to stick my head into the museum. I am surrounded by a host of wonderful opportunities, many of which I bypass regularly. Instead of just picking up a couple of artsy postcards, I decided to go into the museum. Whoa! There's a lot of cool stuff in there! I walked around for a bit and then came back to work. Unfortunately, Liberace was still here, but I cranked up my own tunes on Pandora.com to drown out the sound of the beaten ivories.
It's good to take time for a happy break! I really needed that time out of here. I have to work later tonight (in a different building) and it's a choral festival. At least it is not a piano concert. :) ha ha ha
Looking forward to the weekend, even though it includes a family function. These are not my strong suit, but I am going to bring my new found acceptance of myself with me on this trip, and hope I get out there alive! ha!
Wishing you all a wonderful "sparkling" weekend!
