Currently, I should be revising for my metrics test on Friday, proof reading my coursework due in tomorrow and attempting to do the other 2 pieces of coursework sitting in my 'to-do' pile. However, I have week 10-itis!!! I really can't be bothered, what's the point and who cares all seem to be phrases I'm using a lot recently!!
This blog is however about much more exciting things than work! Last night I played Mahler's 1st Symphony in the SO and Chorus concert. Now, I may be going slightly mad as a result of too much maths, not enough sleep… however, I am sure that I saw badgers in the light/sound box at the back of the Butterworth Hall.
During the opening bars of the piece I happened to be looking up to see where the green flashing light was coming from, and unless I am loosing any remaining marbles I have (which is possible!) I am convinced I saw This and Thatz watching the concert from on high.
I was planning to ask them today whether they were there, just to check that I am still a bit sane (although, on reflection, talking to badgers isn't the most normal of things!) however, they have gone on holiday – alright for some!!
If any other orchestra members happen to have seen This and Thatz during the concert, please let me know!
Thank you – happy hols for anyone I won't see before you go home.
