Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Too late I learned mnemonics for singing intervals on the major scale. The first two notes of "Here Comes the Bride [The Wedding March]" form a perfect fourth, and the first two notes of "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean" form a major sixth. Those are the tough ones for me, especially the sixth.
I'm writing a letter to Seth.
I'm making an appointment to tutor someone in Logic tomorrow. He seems to believe that 7pm counts as "late afternoon." On the Frat Planet, maybe.
