Traded! | 03/31/09
Yesterday morning I got the bad news. I was traded off my softball team, a solid two weeks before the season started. I had auditioned/tried-out for a good team, the Monarchs, and made it. Now, though, I learned I was going to be on a team called the Warlocks. Super. I emailed another league to see if there were any openings but I think I might be stuck. Who gets traded in rec-league softball? I need an agent.
Last night Becky and I met up at the Capital City Brewing Company in Shrlngtn (the town without vowels) for some happy-hour beers. It was a cool place but sadly infested with douches. On the bright side, they had a beer sampler in these little mugs (pictured) that were pretty good. She agreed to go with me to see the Verdi Requiem on Sunday and I am super-excited.
It's one of my favorite pieces of all time, and always on my list of pieces that "everyone should know". One of those triumph-by-mankind sort of pieces that even people who have no interest in classical music should like. For you philistines, I've added a video of the most powerful section, the Dies Irae, for your benefit.
