Wow what a show! It was so good to see the old gang again! I pulled an all nighter and it was well worth it. I had to see it live and join the other crazed fans in Molly's chatroom. What a blast- it was great to have Rene and Bex there too. We got quite carried away at the end there!
I was a bad mom though - I woke my daughter (Anjoli) and Sujoy laughing (at 3:30 a.m.) - plus I had the volume too high. Anjoli had already got to bed very late...so...she didn't make it to school today (she was complaining about earaches and a scratchy throat). This morning she was watching the ITA loop and right after she heard Rachel's beautiful cover of "Riverman" she ran to her room and started playing her Casio keyboard. She has been teaching herself Beethoven's "Fur Elise" and she played it perfectly - adding a few more notes this time (we just got it shipped to us yesterday from home). She hasn't played for about 3 weeks. Anyway, she loves to experiment with the sounds - and today she discovered a whole slew of them. She found a sound called "feedback" and just started playing this riff all along the keyboard. I know it's boring to hear - but she was just jamming - it was SO cool!! She hasn't had any lessons - and I don't want to stunt her creativity - so I'm going to hold off for a bit and just let her keep playing from her heart. Incredible.
So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Rachel, Pete, Mikey and Simon!!
Well worth the black circles under my eyes today.
Don't worry...no more hooky playing...but:
RACHEL MADE ME DO IT!!!!!
