Revision

5 Feb

I think I need to amend my “extraordinary” post.  What I ought to have said is that when things go well singing makes me feel like I’m doing something extraordinary.  Otherwise, I just feel squirmily dissatisfied.

We had a few minutes to spare at the end of last night’s Big Band rehearsal, so Kelly had me go up to the mic to try out a couple of tunes that the band hasn’t done in a while.  Since I’ve never heard the band play them, I wasn’t familiar with the arrangements.  Add to that the little frog in my throat (vestige of the latest cold), my apparent inability to count (seriously, I’m going to have to go to kindergarten with Jade) and the fact that we were set up so that I was singing to a wall with my back to everyone, and I was suddenly tremendously self-conscious.  Ah well, that’s what rehearsals are for, right?  It wasn’t that bad, still fun to try, and I’m sure I’m the worst critic of all.  I just can’t believe I’m still squirming about it this morning!

On a different note (no pun intended) I recently came across a quote by Voltaire that had me slightly worried: “The secret of being a bore is to tell everything.”  But then I realized… he wasn’t a woman.
