My biggest news as of late? I'm attending grad school in the fall.

Problem is, I'm going to be working almost full time at the same time, therefore, will be attending part-time or less.
Bigger problem? Because of the lack of hours attending, they are reluctant to help me out financially.
Any ideas on what I could do?

I do see a benefit recital happening in my future....and some other stuff..just don't know what.


perhaps the most poorly worded invitation I have ever received.

Exactly like that. And my favorite part is the very last sentence, complete with no apostrophe in the word "y'all".

I want to change the way I've been advertising my piano studio, just to make it different and stand out from all the other teachers in the area.

I'm just wanting to stray away from the general "great piano teacher, patient, has the right credentials..." etc.

Have you lovely people ever read, or are familiar with teachers who use any sort of catchy phrase when advertising your studio, or anything else that is not representative of stuffy music lessons?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have for a budding studio. :)

I'm going to Kansas City this weekend, for a much needed break from my suburbia. It'll be short, less than 3 days, but I'm a making a point to visit my two favorite restaurants, am going to a church service at where I used to work, and a concert put on by the group I used to sing with.

At this very moment, my dishwasher is running, and it is downright funky. I have never smelled anything like this in the year and a half I've owned this exceptional piece of machinery. Seriously, I'm wondering if there's a little colony of mushrooms sprouting up that I have neglected to notice. Who knows? All I know, it will be one big adventure when I finally open it to take out the clean(?) dishes.

The oil change place. Ahh, one of my favorite places to visit, and I know yours too. I made it a special point to wake up at 6:30 (Six frickin thirty people) so I could arrive early enough to get the discount. Well, I did get some discount, but along with a transmission fluid change and new antifreeze, ran me $191. Well, shit.

I need new tires, too. Shit again.

Another plan on the agenda for this afternoon is to return a dress I bought with good intentions, but just does not flatter the girls. I'll admit, this dress is not my usual style, but I thought I could pull it off. Not so. Having been blessed (cursed) with a rather large chest, whenever I walk around in this dress, I get the feeling I'm one step away from knocking myself out, or, even worse, the person standing next to me. Back to Dillard's it goes.

One of my friends is in the hospital after a car accident. Please think good thoughts for her, as I will be doing myself.

I purchased a focaccia-type thing at the store today - two pieces of bread with fresh mozarella and tomatoes and pesto in between. There are cooking directions to make it a grilled sandwich, but I don't have a foreman grill or skillet pan or anything like that. How would you suggest I go about this?

How many times has someone on your friends list posted about something that really confused you, but you didn't want to ask because you knew you SHOULD know? How many times have you felt "guilty" asking a close eljay friend a question that should be "obvious"?

Well, here's your opportunity.

If you've missed a few things, missed an entry or are just generally confused, ask me anything. Even something EXTREMELY basic, like where I live! I'm not allowed to get even slightly irritated at any of the questions : We've all missed things before. In turn, though, you must repost this in your own journal.

Ask away.
