First soprano. And apart from Violin, I know how to play recorder (I had lessons long before we played it in school), piano (I might be a bit rusty there, since I haven't had much chance to practice since we sold our piano), and I am currently learning to play Ocarina (One C-type with twelve holes [two of them half holes], and one smaller one which I forget which type it is, but it wasn't C.). And I know how to play Didgeridoo, and have one, but I have been neglecting to practice - I really have to learn continuous breathing before I can get anywhere at this point, really.

Oh, and I got a Japanese Bamboo flute, but I don't yet know how to play it.

Hey, me too! Bought one back at the San Rafael Farmers' Market last... hey wait, that was almost two years ago. Whoa.

Something like "if I install this Facebook application, I'll also have to install all these other ones, and soon, my page will look ridiculously cluttered and ugly", I think. The slippery slope is actually a logical fallacy most of the time.

I got mine from a Didgeridoo workshop I had visited one time before. It's a lovely one the guy got from Australia himself, with beautiful burnt in decorations.

Not sure I appreciate being called Trumsie (Trum or Rikard is fine if you want to shorten it.) but since I got a hug, I'm happy anyway.

Just name a time and a place, and I'll definitely maybe be there, if I can fit it in my schedule. Perhaps.

Gah, I give up. You win. Sorry .




And I'd prefer an AG Community Choir, but count me in for the band too. I should warn you, though, that I haven't played my clarinet in a fair while (and you probably already have a pianist).

I prefer the choir too. I sing what's equivalent to the female barbershop bass.

There's no reason to not have any singing in the Band. (I usually sing tenor, though I've been told my voice is really a baritone.)

Good.

(I've once played a piece for kazoo quartet and wind band. As I recall, it was fun.)

Ah, so that's probably tenor-ish, which is what I've been singing lately as well. My most comfortable range is on the alto side of things, but I'm also known for either wanting to sing really really low or really really high, because it's more fun to be outside my comfort zone.

So, perhaps a choir it is, then. Methinks I'll have to make a separate thread at some point.

Simple, you just go to my profile and click "Serve Lady Jessica".

(I should point out that you lose sovereign status that way, but apparently that doesn't really do anything much. Some players apparently consider it a status symbol.)


Oh, and I found a bit more detailed information about the game.

It really is a lot of fun.


Robert, you'd even help me if you installed the application, and then uninstalled it again. Squires and Handmaidens are only active for 7 days, but Knights and Ladies are counted forever, even if they don't play or uninstall the application again. So, pretty please?

Possibly.

In other news, I think that I may have made one of the most bizarre decisions ever made by a history undergraduate due to complete his degree this summer. I'd say more, but that would probably be tempting fate. I'll know by the end of the year. Probably.
