People think that because I play the violin I can automatically play the mandolin simply because the strings are tuned the same.

NOPE

Violin: Bow. Mandolin: PICK (a vastly different technique)

Violin: Fingers are placed precisely on a particular spot on the string to create the correct pitch. Mandolin: Fingers are placed behind a fret (as in the guitar) to create pitch. Meaning that finger placement is slightly different.

Mandolin has double strings (as if it wasn’t enough to have to tune 4 strings)

I mean, I could learn it if I wanted to.

But… I don’t.


Why are people claiming that Avril Lavigne’s “Hello Kitty” music video is racially offensive? Yeah, I mean as a song it’s shit and a complete and total WTF from Avril considering what she used to write, but I don’t see anything that could be considered racist in the video. Am I missing something?



So I’m trying to fill out this SEVEN PAGE application for the cupcake shop. A few questions are driving me nuts.

"Please describe to us your long term and short term goals."
Is this in reference to specifically this job or life in general?

"Do you have any personal hangups? Y or N"
-_- Yeah sure everyone does, but none that would affect my ability to bake cupcakes

And the references: “List 3 persons who you feel you know well. The first 2 references should be people that will speak highly of you, the 3rd reference should be someone whose opinion of you is less than stellar.
First of all why would anyone put that on an application. Second, I don’t mean to sound conceited, but is someone doesn’t think highly of me, then they don’t actually know me.

Any help out there would be greatly appreciated.

New hair: A+

Well, maybe not the hairline, it’s not perfect. But the awesomeness of the rest of it makes up for it. 

Under layers is my trusty Surya Brasil Henna cream in Burgundy. 

Top layers is Clairol jazzing in razzy wine or something like that.

The local cupcakery has posted on Facebook that they’re hiring. I just might have to check that out and see what they’re needing exactly. If the hours are flexible, I would definitely be interested.

We’re playing our usual Easter Sunday gig at the retirement home. It’s going quite well, except that they have the heat on and I’m boiling. But I’m looking fantastic, and Danny’s wearing a tie and jacket, so things are good.

I got my hair cut today. I love it. Best I’ve had in a long time. So I then proceeded to spend about $16 on hair color because I assumed that I would want it dark burgundy red again… But the more I look at it, the more I’m really liking the blonde. :/ Do I stick with what I’m liking at the moment, or indulge in my ever-constant need for change? Ugh.
