Photographic memories

We're back with more pictures from our year-old Japan trip! This week's installment features our pictures from It's A Small World and the Haunted Mansion, and has some interesting(?) comments about translation! ...Okay, one interesting comment about translation, and it's, like, the second to last picture, so in case you were dying to read it but didn't want to be bored through 73 pictures, there you go. Anyway, check it out!

In other news, the choir performance went reasonably well. Athena, as the director, decided that it was important for the choir members to all, you know, be able to hit all the notes. So while I was practicing all the rest of the verses, she transposed the protested verse into a lower key, all by hand! Unfortunately, while this may have made the verse easier to sing, it did not necessarily make it any easier to play, so I still had to practice it a bunch, and I don't think I played it perfectly, but I do think I played it well enough to not offend the ears of the congregation, which is really what I was hoping for. And the choir managed to sing the song pretty well, too.

Today I'm thankful for the choir performance going reasonably well, getting to look back at some of our Tokyo Disneyland pictures, having peanut butter M&Ms to help us out when the blood sugar is low, getting our NMNL box yesterday, and our playlist pulling up the Koe no Ouji-samas singing It's A Small World while we're looking at Small World pictures.
