can I do that?? Oh well ... Monday, October 22 is the 194th year since the birth of history's greatest pianist!! I have soooo many activities planned. 1. I'm temporarily renaming my children Daniel, Cosima and Blandine. They're thrilled. Really. 2. Start an torrid love affair with a Countess. If you know a Countess, please email me ASAP. 3. Grow hair. How can I accurately play his music with no hair flip? It's there in the urtext editions. 4. Take some, but not all, orders for Catholic priesthood. Celibacy is not for me. Really. 3 kids, remember? and a bun in the oven, too! (which we found out today is a girl!!! huzzah!) 5. Have my musical talents vastly underappreciated. Oh wait, I can take that off my to-do list. 6. An elaborate recreation of Ferenc's triumphant entry into the world using a sleeping bag, a naked fat man and a bottle of ketchup. Honestly, you're better off not knowing. 7. Hogging the PS mssg board with trivial minutiae of his life and times. Oh wait ... well, started early on that one! I'm sure there's more to do ... but I wanna play some of his music too!
