is heading to rehearsal for the Folsom Lake Symphony Orchestra
@gb1191 could we make it 76 @ 6AM tomorrow? I’ll be on time.
@gb1191 that’s possible - I got it from Kazaa, back when it & Napster were free, but inaccurate.
about to watch the season premiere of House M. D. , now that I finally have a free night (Thankful for Symphonic Winds woodwind sectional!)

@gb1191 WIBC Auditions are due Oct. 8 - that’s 2 weeks.
@HiBerke except perhaps in Alabama.
Just got home from a second 16 hour day in a row… but at least I got in a nice little 3 hour nap between them :)
@trombone_chick we’ll be there in about 4 minutes.
half hour to call time - are you awake?
Printing roll sheets and maps… and trying to get at least 4 hours of sleep before the 5AM call-time.
good work today Band & Color Guard! Now its time to wow them in Antioch…
has a very healthy to-do list today.
http://pic.gd/4049eb Seemed like a good idea at the time…
@pianotyke I didn’t hear about that until after school today. But I may not have been the target audience.

Is leaving an empty house. Everyone at rehearsals tonight. Susie’s playing Dixieland and I’m heading to Sacramento Concert Band. `@.\
is sad to be missing the season premier of House M. D. :( anyone recording it?
@rachelrule thank you Rachel. I’m going to the concert in Grass Valley, CA on Oct. 15. I teach band & had a marine recruiter offering tix
claims his continued lack of interesting status updates as scientific evidence of a life becoming pregressively more boring
trying to burn off the calories from Grandma’s ice cream cake by grading tech assignments. Not optimistic at this juncture.
some guy is rock-climbing the fascade of the strip mall outside Chipotle.
@gb1191 TURBOJAM is the play-a-thon, but we aren’t calling it that. In fact, I didn’t say that.
@pianotyke yes, TURBOJAM concludes in a concert.
loves Greek food, even from a chain restaurant.
@Eeyore6 it’s the President’s Own Marine Band. I just got a basic count. Not signed up - I don’t know how many tickets they will give.
@PAGRok what’s Twilight? Just like a picture of the sunset?
@MarleeLuikens the point is to get it to do things and run programs that it otherwise wouldn’t do, such as making it more customizable, etc.
is alternating between yardwork and playing with the cool photo editing / drawing / audio mixing tools at www.aviary.com
RT @alyankovic: If I had a company that sold canned chicken, I would call it “Tuna Of The Land”… just to blow everyone’s minds.
is super hyped for TURBOJAM 2009
good full booster meeting. Thanks for your hard work, board
@trombone_chick Cool - then you could play for TubaChristmas, too!
Band Parents: if anyone has the 2008/09 Video, please bring it with you tonight (7PM). Mine is not playing correctly. Thanks!

is having fun trying to hack his phone.
@pianotyke Sweet Bergman? what?!
leaving Sac Winds rehearsal. Lots of Tchaikovsky tonight :D

@pianotyke Yaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations!

rain is a great way to start the week!

@kitherkatrina it’s near Magnolia and Dog Bar. No structures damaged. One near fire. Tons of units on the scene. 10% contained an hour ago.
Fire @ Black Horse near LoP - http://mobypicture.com/?…
If you’re in the area, come get your car washed by the BRHS Band - CVS at Combie, Auburn
fat raindrops are washing my car.
either just heard thunder or gunfire. Considering today’s activities I’m hoping it was the latter.
Crazy clouds -yay! Hope that doesn’t mean bad news for the band carwash that I’m on my way to
@Birdiebot excellent, we can use lots of help.
is getting ready to watch The Aristocrats with the girls. This is tweet 999 - a couple days late. Need to make the next one good!
has decided to elevate his thermoregulatory set-point temporarily in order to attempt to neutralize a perceived viral or bacterial invasion
Test run with TweetPhoto http://pic.gd/a3a072
@trombone_chick thanks, Josie - great idea!
@BearRiverBands Haiku Band shirt idea- 3 lines: “Bear River Bands - Yes, / We Really Are That Hardcore / This is a Haiku”
AMBER ALERT! 3 yr old girl taken by a man driving a new silver truck. Plate 72B381 from Stockton, CA. Please use your status to tell others
@kitherkatrina I love your avatar now with the lemons. It looks like you are trying to eat them!
@Type14 please keep the HTC reviews coming!
@pianotyke why would you stop lessons?
hears a tap, tap, tapping at my chamber door.
@lancearmstrong nearly 9:09:09 9/9/9
@trombone_chick good for you, Josie! That is great to have such a high goal and to start moving toward it right now. :)
WTG Color Guard! Great practice today! Let’s keep the momentum going…
@kitherkatrina no, I did not proofread the previous post
@kitherkatrina yo bro took got the reeds yesterday. That’s great that you’re playing down there. I wasn’t sure if you were or not.
just getting out of Sac Symphonic Winds…featuring Alissa Aune!
thanks @stephsugano for the wish list! This is fantastic and just in time for B2SN next Monday :D
is going to get some reading in before bed… we should have a 3-day weekend every week.
is on a bike ride with my girls.
@trombone_chick ahh, tisk tisk. They’re from tech students that don’t think I know how to do a simple google search. Hahaha
is learning Russian swear words from my students… :/
@punkrocker20706 the zebra wall… I’m used to the over-tweeting, in fact Twitter seemed dead last week when you were away. lol
@trombone_chick if that was to me: Roseville - hwy 65 & pleasant grove by wal*mart
free chicken sandwich at #chic-fil-a today if you are wearing any sports team clothing!
@punkrocker20706 hey, I don’t usually go to twitter on the web, but just though you should know your page about gave me a seizure.
@pianotyke yeah, funny huh? I think he was being sarcastic - or perhaps just not real bright.
thankfully finds it very relaxing 2 sit @ITSAGRINDCoffee and grade homework, otherwise I can see how working all weekend might be a bummer.
contra-bassoon and harp is an odd combination for a duet.
listening to ‘Night on Bald Mountain’ by Mussorgsky/Leibowitz
listening to Danse Macabre by Camille Saint-Saëns
is creating brushes on GIMP
one minute fine, next minute world ending… anyone? anyone?… thats right - girls
The new Scooby Doo on CN has nothing on the old Scooby Doo Where Are You show
@punkrocker20706 my battery life is good, touchscreen is good. But it changes all my alarm settings randomly, duplicate music files, etc.
@punkrocker20706 hard core.
is seriously thinking of swapping his extremely buggy Samsung Eternity (which I otherwise like) for a new HTC Hero in Oct. http://tr.im/xZFo
@trombone_chick I’ll try to remember to send a card.
@punkrocker20706 some are ok, but others are horrible, since they’ve grown up doing that. They don’t separate casual talk & formal writing.
Pet peeve: 9th graders who turn in formal essays using texting abbreviations and informal language - writing how they talk to their friends.
is sipping an americano at @ITSAGRINDCoffee on Foothills in Roseville - grading papers and listening to music.
@MarleeLuikens I hope so too. We would miss you very much.
overheard the instrument repair guy say this morning: “It’s so frustrating sometimes - all people ever bring in here is broken instruments”!
@punkrocker20706 one of my favorite holidays.
kids 2 & 3 mafe me breakfast in bed this morning - for no particular reason! (and it was good)
was playing with some photomanipulation on GIMP, now dinner with @tubamom & family, then watching Race to Witch Mountain…
is really looking forward to this 3-day weekend. Not sure of its point any more, though.
has a terrible desire for a cold treat.
is listening to the Congresswoman Doris Matsui telephone town hall…
has the house to himself: Susie’s at band practice and #4 is probably out 4 the night. Time to party. I think I’ll grade some assignments!
@pianotyke she seems very teachable and good to work with…
@Yelah214 good job today! thanks for filling in. :)
@kitherkatrina I don’t believe so. But my college had 30,000 students. Maybe a smaller campus might.
@ralphy259 glad to hear you enjoyed it! Bring a friend tomorrow… ;)
is grading tech papers online - I love not having to carry around “actual” papers!
thinks tuning marching snares takes more patience than putting up with the drama of four daughters.
it was fun and very productive having my wife and 3 year old hang out (work) at the band room today!
preparing field trip requests while my wonderful assistants are sorting & filing music.
