Happy Holidays

General Comments Off

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, and all that stuff. I’m really
getting into using the “Happy Holidays” phrase now, just because it
seems to irk so many people. Megan apparently said it to one of her
students, and the student got all annoyed and corrected her, “Uhhh…
no. It’s ‘Merry Christmas’!!” People are too touchy over this, and
it’s so fun to push their buttons.

I got an email a few days ago from Gabriel and Fumika. They’re still
living in Spain and seem to love it there. They like the city and the
orchestra a lot. They sent me a photo of their little baby, Claudio.
He’s very cute.
