Happy V-Day (not V-E or V-J Day, mind you, but certainly Victory/Valentine's/Vagina V-Day, which is like Feburary 14th except it's a global day to end violence against woman and girls) and Valentine's Day!|
If anyone asks, slide whistle is the folk instrument of my native land.
Our Kiva Han concert went very well. Thank you to all who came!
All the bands there had an excellent turnout, I'd say, and we were all invited back which is excitingness indeed. The room was filled up pretty well! I'm not sure that the other bands really stayed for much of our set, but Christopher thought they were there for at least some of it and one of the bands needed to carry all of their stuff back home. *le shrug* But people were there for the first act! Boy, were they ever.
If I HAD a reciprocating sweetheart for V-day - specifically for the Valentine's part, this is how the magic would start.
From the Wikipedia article on Fred Rogers: "On July 9, 2002, Fred Rogers received the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his contributions to children's education. "Fred Rogers has proven that television can soothe the soul and nurture the spirit and teach the very young," said President George W. Bush at the presentation."
On March 4, 2003, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed Resolution 111 honoring Rogers for "his legendary service to the improvement of the lives of children, his steadfast commitment to demonstrating the power of compassion, and his dedication to spreading kindness through example."
I considered asking someone out in a low-key sort of way. Maybe next year I can get up to writing her an email and then chickening out. :-)D (With no offense meant to chickens, who are sufficiently noble birds in their own way, probably. I mean, I don't really know...)
