Around 6 am on the morning of December 31st, I finished up 6 college apps. Not bad for two weeks of work, and they were mailed off later that morning. Now I'm probably going to do one more (due Jan. 15th) and it's quite relieving actually.
Last night we (the pyritz) played at a beautiful wedding. The church was huge, nice, and we did end up playing right next to the baptismal fountain, however by great skill managing not to fall in. The tough part was timing. Usually not such a huge deal, but we went back and talked to the groom beforehand, and switched the order of a few pieces (there was no reason not to do pachelbel when the bride made her way down the aisle), but the problem that there was a gigantic wall between us and the front of the church. Therefore, we could not see when anyone had arrived in their spot, and rather could only make out when they were maybe 2/3 of the way down the aisle. Also, we could not see at all what was happening, so we couldn't tell if it was over. Yes, yes, they said something like "I present to you, Mr. and Mrs. ______" and people clapped, but this wedding was so full of religious ceremony and such (i.e. the communion, which we had to play during, but again could not see. At first only the religious... dudes... were participating, and we were utterly confused, since we figured that something called COMMUNION was more COMMUNITY-like than just religious leaders eating. Luckily, we figured it out and all was not lost), that we couldn't really tell when it was over. BUT, people were sort of nodding at us, and so I did my solo start to the wedding march, and everyone was thrilled. Or at least I hope so. There was a wall in the way, so I couldn't tell.
What's even more exciting though, is that this couple was related to another couple whose wedding we played at a couple years ago. I recognized the bride (and vaguely the groom), and what's even better was they still appeared to be married! Oh, success! They didn't plan to hire us because we were at their relative's wedding though, it was accidental, so the original couple was pretty excited to see us again. I think they were maybe the second wedding we ever played for.
My party last night, not bad not bad. However, most people who read this blog were there, so whatever. Also, I am totally addicted to CC.
