For some reason, our teakettle won’t whistle. It gives more of a whimpy “mmmrrrrrrI’m boiling but I’m too lazy to properly tell you rrrrrrrmmmmm” whirring sound. Poor little guy–probably a clogged sinus or something. I sure know that, if I had a bad nose, I wouldn’t want to whistle everytime my insides rumbled.

I’ve been trying to listen to CD’s of the orchestra music, you know, to get a feel for it, maybe even play along. And I always do really well, until the first page ends. It usually ends at an extended rest or something, and after that, I’m lost like a nomad in Brooklyn. Oh well. My teacher herself said that it doesn’t sound as it looks, though puzzlingly, she suggested that I listen to it. o_0
