Last weekend Joshua and I went to Minnesota for three days.

This week Josh is on break, and taking advantage of the free time to read more Dickens.

Last night we heard the London Symphony (under Gergiev).

Tonight we shall hear the Boston Symphony (under Dutoit).

Tomorrow afternoon, Josh and I will fly down to Baltimore for the weekend, and on Saturday night we shall hear the Baltimore Symphony (under Tortelier). Alas, we had purchased our tickets for the Baltimore concert after the scheduled conductor, Yuri Temirkanov, had already cancelled his Baltimore appearances—but before the Baltimore Symphony bothered to note this very important fact on its website. Had we known Temirkanov had already cancelled his Baltimore concerts, we would not even have bothered to plan a weekend in Baltimore. Josh and I should have cancelled the Baltimore weekend, but we already had purchased flight tickets, concert tickets and theater tickets, and we hated to throw the money away. It was all very, very aggravating.

My parents leave for Portugal tomorrow.

And I am busy at work.
