I've got no strings, to hold me down

I'm celebrating my new wireless home network by blogging in my bedroom. I don't have much to say right now, though I'm working on a little essay on the purpose of music analysis. I can share a little personal details. We just moved from our Avon house to a little rental house in Greencastle. We had been trying to sell our house since April, with the hopes of buying something in Greencastle. We lost hope this month, and decided to rent something while we wait for the house to sell. Naturally, the house sold three days after we moved. And then we found a house we want to buy, so we could be moving twice in the space of a month.

But more importantly... Accordian jokes!

Q: What's the difference between a chainsaw and an accordion?

Ack! It was acting wonky at the end of the evening, seeming like it was frozen each time I hit publish. I'll have to learn the idiosyncracies of my Airport.

Did you hear about the accordion player who left his accordion in the back seat went out for breakfast after the gig, and when he got back the window had been smashed -and there were three more accordions on the seat.
