Concert and Clean Up
Last week Agi and I saw a fantastic concert put on by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. We decided to go for some great seats and it was a very good choice because we could see the pianist's face. My exact quote to Agi halfway through was, "This dude is a genius." Because he played flawlessly for 90 minutes--no notes--while leading the rest of the orchestra. Perhaps this is common for pianists but I was amazed. It turns out he is a Polish-Hungarian hot shot http://www.anderszewski.net/writings/index.cfm who makes me think he's probably the Robert Downey Jr of the piano world.
Also, Agi definitely has more impulses to clean than I do. When she asked me to vacuum yesterday I explained my position: Usually I don't break out the vacuum until the bunnies come out to play. A good principle, no?
