Mom was supposed to come over last night to practice the song we're all supposed to be singing in her ward on Sunday. The idea is that the rest of us are so musically inclined that she's the one who needs the most practice (hence her coming alone), but that we're not such musical geniuses that we don't need any practice (apparently Mom has been disappointed in the quality of our sisters' musical performances recently (we ourselves haven't performed recently, unless you count my playing the piano)). And practicing has to take place here, because we're the ones with a piano. She ended up canceling for some reason, but she assured me she'd get everyone to come over tonight to practice. I'm really not sure how I feel about this, especially because Aurora happens to be in town this weekend, and Mom got her to join in. And Aurora is the self-proclaimed music expert of the family.
Of course, the title isn't entirely undeserved--she is a fantastic singer. But that doesn't mean she'll be nice. I guess we'll just have to see what happens. But on the bright side, she and her husband are Ace Attorney fans, so we might have someone to obsess with.
Speaking of Ace Attorney, last night we met the new prosecutor. I think I like him a lot. They all have their crazy gimmicks and props, so when Phoenix said he was a rock star, I thought he'd bring his guitar into the courtroom. Apparently he's a little better at following the rules than von Karma and Godot, because he didn't, which is even more awesome because air guitar is much funnier.
Trucy's super cute and I love her outfit. We're dying to figure out what her deal is. We think we know, but that just bugs us even more because it's that much harder waiting for confirmation. Normally we'd just be like, "Oh, cute new girl. I'm sure we'll find out her dark past later." Mr. Hat is awesome.
Today I'm thankful for Mimsy apparently deciding that she likes being in the little house in the cat tree, the nice effect of the new green leaves against the dark wet bark of the tree outside, having two Apollo Justice keychains to object at each other with (I can't believe I forgot to be thankful for that yesterday), remembering that we have more chocolate than I thought we did, and the "zu" katakana pluralizer!
