Another Long Monday…

Eileen, me and Katrine

Yup, the backing vocals are done, and sounding great, thanks to these lovely ladies. Like I suspected, they kind of have a similar type of voice, and sound really good together. I didn’t finish my vocals in the end, because we spent so long working out and recording the harmonies, but that’s ok. Tomorrow is another day. Technically, today is also another day, but Dan and Alex are rehearsing with This Is Two tonight, and I am not yet good enough friends with ProTools to record by my lonesome. 
It’s probably a good thing that I have nothing on tonight. It has been a loooong day, like Mondays are. The week is kicked off at 9:15 by an hour and a half of hard exercise; Aerobics, strength and street dance choreography. Then I have a couple of hours to get home, have a shower and eat, before I go back in at 1 for 5 hours straight of lessons, with no more than one 5 minute break. Theory, theory, percussion and more music theory. Those last 2 hours straight of theory are long… It’s getting pretty advanced now as well, and I must say, I’m struggling a bit with all the scales and 7th chords and harmonizing with Tritone substituted secondary Dominant chords. My brain feels like jelly, and I feel completely incapable of doing anything other than watching something that doesn’t require any kind of brain function on some sort of screen. Like Sex And The City. Oh joy. I know, I know, it is kind of silly. But it has served as therapy for me many times in the past, if I ever felt down, or pissed off, and it still makes me smile. Apart from every time Carrie and Big breaks up. And that one time with Aidan. Devastating. 
Aaaanyway. That’s as much activity my brain can take for the evening I think, so I’m gonna go. 
Oh my god, Eileen just came waltzing in and surprised me with lovely Norwegian chocolate!! 😀 Just what I needed tonight! That, and the talk I had with my sister on Skype earlier, and my amazing nephew who couldn’t stop kissing the screen. The good times always outweigh the bad. Thank fuck for that. 
I LOVE YOU!! …and my nephew. And Norwegian chocolate. ;-P
Lots of luuuv,
Oh, and Sex And The City was beat by American Dad. It happens.
