I just received an email that says that Opera can’t provide parking for us today, and that there will probably be an extra 10,000 people downtown.

Yes. 10,000.

First of all, sending an email the day of the rehearsal is … well … it’s not going to reach everyone. I’m an email junkie, ’tis true, but not everyone is. And some musicians will probably wake up in time to get dressed and head on down. (Yes, many like to sleep in. A lot.) Some are coming from quite a distance, too. So we’ll see what happens.

So, wondering what the large event might be.

Hillary.

’nuff said.

(And no, I’m not going to tell you who I’m voting for. Just like I didn’t tell the Clinton folks who called, and won’t tell the Obama folks either. I’m secretive that way. No one from the Republican party has called. Gee, I wonder why that is?)

Info you need to know. Or not.: Scratching an itch activates the memory and pleasure parts of the brain. Cool. It supresses the areas linked to the sensation of pain and emotions. Nice! But since it feels so good we can get compulsive about it. Not so cool.

What to do, what to do …?

I’m scratching my head over this one.

Update
I just checked online. The Hillary event doesn’t begin until 4:00. Surely our 1:00 rehearsal shouldn’t be as large an issue as I first feared. A 1:00 rehearsal means I get there a little after noon. I’m fretting less now. :-)
