- 15:04 Voted at Lake Lynn Community Center. They were busy, but well-staffed and efficient, so the wait was less than 10 minutes.
- 15:05 They're doing a good job pointing out the 2-sided ballot and handing out sheets reiterating instructions on straight ticket excluding pres.
- 14:06 At Fletcher early for Borromeo String Quartet. Found a comfy bench to sit and finish reading NYT.
- 14:12 And apparently I will be overhearing the Phantom that started in Memorial at 2.
- 18:15 Unusually, three members of the quartet used laptops for the Ives and Scearce scores, with foot pedals to advance pages. Great performances.
- 18:30 Shortly off to Duke for the Tokyo String Quartet.
- 00:19 I do love that Brahms Clarinet Quintet. The Kodaly duo for cello and violin was amazing, too.
- 00:20 Now for some dinner, since I seem to have forgotten about that.
- 01:27 The house on the corner with a bunch of McCain/Palin yardsigns has now added a "No trespassing" sign, too. I wonder if there's a connection.
- 19:31 I hate when I go to the bookstore to pick up a $9 MMPB and end up spending $120. Damn The Regulator and their tempting fall sale!
- 19:36 There is way too much going on around here this weekend. Read about Escapism over dinner; looks great, but I'll miss it all.
- 19:41 Now at Duke Chapel for Tallis Scholars. Heard them before at UofC in Rockefeller, and am hoping for another amazing performance.
- 13:26 I generally dislike real-world in-game ads, but if they must exist, this is a cool use for them: tinyurl.com/3pdzxq
- 13:36 Amused by Maureen Dowd's pseudo-Latin: tinyurl.com/43cqj5
- 17:47 Heading out for some dinner, then to Meymandi for concert at 8 with Edgar Meyer (double-bass) & Chris Thile (mandolin).
- 23:21 That was quite a fun concert, ranging from Bach to jazz and bluegrass. Sadly, attendance was poor, at least for the cavernous Meymandi.
