bored again

The Prioress
You scored 15% Cardinal, 61% Monk, 52% Lady, and 43% Knight!

You are a moral person and are also highly intellectual. You like your
solitude but are also kind and helpful to those around you. Guided by a
belief in the goodness of mankind you will likely be christened a saint
after your life is over.

You scored high as both the Lady and the Monk. You can try again to
get a more precise description of either the Monk or the lady, or you
can be happy that you're an individual.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

Nun Danket Alle Gott...

Now thank we all our God
With hearts and hands and voices
Who wondrous things has done
For whom the world rejoices
Who from our mother's arms
Has kept us on our way
And wondrous things has done...

That's all I remember, and I'm too lazy to get up and find the hymnal. ;-)
It's really a pity that I haven't quite learned Karg-Elert's "March on Nun Danket" yet...it would be very fitting. Fun piece to play as well.

I got about 15 hours of sleep last night...went to bed really early since I felt like crap, and got up in time for thankgiving brunch. Yep, we eat our thanksgiving dinner for breakfast. Saves the need for food later on in the day. Got about 1/3 of my 10 page paper on Mozart's Requiem done as well. Let's see how long I can keep the bullshit up...going on and on about how Mozart was a genius, and his magnificent use of the Doctrine of Affections, etc.

This may sound a bit pitiful, but right now I'm most thankful that there is no school for 4 days, giving me ample time to get my homework done AND procrastinate a bit. Make that a lot. Maybe I'll think of something really deep later. Or not. Pretty much all my deep thinking has gone into the Requiem paper, which is starting to have vestiges of a theological treatise as well.

Random thought of the day

1 Corinthians 1:27 - but God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong.

Amazing how us mighty advanced humans couldn't survive without bacteria.

There goes my day...

I got a 69 on my chemistry test. So according to my calculations, if I want a B in the class, I need to get at least an 88 on the next test. Grraargh.

My brain is dead. Don't expect any meaningful posts for a while. (Not that I've ever had any of those...)

I can't seem to shake the feeling that one day I'll end up in the Eastern Orthodox church (this is far from being a recent occurence)...and that's a tough case, considering that I'm getting a degree in organ and church music, and for the most part, they don't use organs. ;-) Guess I'll wait and see what happens...I bet tomorrow the pendulum will swing the other way, and I'll have posters of Bach everywhere. :P

HT: Intolerant Elle

Here is what the Almighty Google tells me I need:

2. Maria needs to write a letter to Sandra, inviting her to the August meeting.
3. Maria needs to learn to let go.
4. Maria needs 24/7 care today. (Alright, a personal maid!)
5. Maria needs one or two good performances in the coming weeks. (But I have no chance to perform until Advent!>
6. Maria needs help with her damp chimney.

Last night I was in the choir that provided backup to a trio of Italian tenors. Thoughts from the concert:

- Italian guys sing really well
- Italian guys are hott
- They get very dramatic when they sing
- They like giving encores
